  • Pros: i've actually owned two of these now, all the pros carry from my review 6/8/11
  • Cons: there are seperate cords running to each of the ear cups and i was storing the headset by hanging it from the side of a drawer which killed one of the cords, the headset still worked fine when i rigged a connection, not worth deducting an egg imo but it bears mentioning, bought a second set which i'm storing more carefully and will prolly eventually solder new lines on the old set

  • Summary: I have better but more expensive headphones but for the price these are good. They are also very much noise canceling. I'm satisfied. I do wish the mic was of a higher impedance, it is a mismatch with one of my programs.

Solid headphones

Kirk H., Newegg
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Dollar to value is very good. Not the best headphones out there but a solid set
  • Pros: Comfortable fit. Good sound quality. Long enough cord to use at desk.
  • Cons: Leather piece under support arms is not attached very well. Mine eventually fell off. The good news is that it made almost no difference in fit, they are still comfortable and sound good.

Not bad for the price

chris a., Newegg

  • Summary: Mic tends to wiggle around when in the full upright position if you move your head around. Not really a con,since most of the time it is down when I am using it.
  • Pros: Great sounding headphones. Amazing amount of bass without distortion to highs no matter how loud you play anything.
  • Cons: Kinda heavy. You will need to get used to it,first couple times I wore them for a few hours my head hurt. Mic is also very quite. Useable,mind you,just quite. If you are in a full room on TS/Vent people might have a hard time hearing you over others.

  • Summary: I'm going to start off by saying that these are good headphones for their price. They have decent sound quality, something I didn't really expect out of a $40 pair of headphones. The mic works and sounds very good. It isn't recording studio material, but it is fairly good. Dragon NaturallySpeaking has no problem understanding my voice through it, and my friends on Skype say it is pretty clear. I have also tested it on Audacity and it is good.
  • Pros: good sound quality, durable, microphone works well
  • Cons: not very portable

Not as good as others at this price

Gregg K., Newegg

  • Summary: Not bad, but again, I expected a bit more from the KOSS brand.
  • Pros: Sound quality is OK Headset is comfortable for my head.
  • Cons: I expected a little more from KOSS. This headset is average, at best, for this price.

Please Don't bother

Louis N., Newegg

  • Summary: Stay away from this series of headset
  • Pros: All the parts on a head set that usually break for me are made out of rubber on this headset, so this thing will probably last you a long time.
  • Cons: It probably won't be a very fun long time, the sound coming out is a bit on the flat side, and I like a lot of clarity and trebble, the headset is very loud by default, and with no built in volume control you better hope you can macro in volume control on your keyboard or mouse. When wearing them it feels like your ears are full of water, and sounds coming from other than the headset sound very muffled, not in a good way either, it feels as if the muffling is coming f...

  • Summary: If you're looking for a nice headset focusing on good sound for an affordable price, this is your headset. However, if microphone quality is important to you for recording or chatting then seek a better product.
  • Pros: Got these as cheap replacement for my broken Sennheiser headset. Design is comfortable and very flexible to however you like it to be. Sound quality is great my music sounds amazing and I'm able to hear important noises while gaming.
  • Cons: Has a good fit around the ears, but after a couple hours of wear I did experience mild head discomfort. I'll chalk this up to them not being broken in yet though. The main downpoint to this product is the microphone. Like the rest of the reviews say the mic is not very good. I mean it's not bad, after a bit of tweaking in settings people in ventrilo say I come in pretty clear, but it's not amazing.
