great sound; controls not for Android

  • Excerpt: At one time I had a set of the Porta Pro headphones (without controls), and they were great--so I knew what I was getting into. I also knew that the controls would not work with Android tablets (only Apple), but I got a sale price on them and free shipping so I was not disappointed. Great sound and they feel light and comfortable. They are not noise-cancelling, so may not be great for noisy situations, but really good for all-around use.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Controls Not For, Controls Not For Android

Retro awesome. Straight outta 1984!

  • Excerpt: Great sound, great range, one of the cheapest and best headphones out there. An added bonus is that they look straight outta 1984, and that your are at the helm of mission control (because you are when you rock these phones). A few notes: 1) If you work in a quiet office, the headphones do leak some sound and others can hear it.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Retro, Stylish
  • Cons: Too Much Ambient Noise

I like them

  • Summary: These are my second pair. I had to RMA my first due to it developing a short in the wire after a day's use.
  • Pros: If you like Koss' normal PortaPro headphones, you'll like these. Great bass. Wired control works on android phones even though these are made for Apple.
  • Cons: The buttons are too flushed with the controller. You have to really press on them to get it to register. This is the reason for 4 eggs instead of 5. Lack of a cloth clip.

good sound, comfortable, good price

  • Excerpt: I bought these Koss headphones to use for commuting. I know they are not 'sound-cancelling' but I didn't really want that. They have good sound, good bass and I can hear much more of the details in the music than with my other Koss phones. My set did not come with instructions, so I had to watch a Youtube video to figure out the fold-up feature, but not really a problem.

Sound investment

  • Excerpt: A casual audio consumer, I use my Apple iTouch to listen to audio books and music. My son investigated these headphones online and reported a broad consensus that they deliver great sound, particularly relative to their price. I like them--rich bass and subtle trebles complement their full range of volume. Light weight and compactible, they travel well, but they do seem delicate. My only complaint, a minor one, is that the storage bag is too small for easy stuffing.
