  • Summary: The sound is great and the mic come through clear, however the ear peices were not made for extended use and i would not suggest buying this if you plan on wearing it for more then an hour or two.

Was fine until left headphone died..

Dale N., Newegg
14 September 2013
  • Summary: I may have gotten unlucky with this headset. A defected headset could come from the factory of any modern day product, cheap or expensive. Although my first try on these makes me not want to get another pair. A two week life is pretty bad.
  • Pros: The sound quality of the mic was fine, and the sound quality of the speakers were fine for gaming.
  • Cons: The microphone seems like it would one day break off with how it is attached. The left speaker died after 2 weeks.

Not really happy

Israel S., Newegg

  • Summary: These things have been BABY handled and still shorted out at the connection point. I only hope KOSS honors their 1 year warranty....
  • Pros: They work as advertised.
  • Cons: Cable shorted at the base of the earphone connection already!

Worst headset for gaming out there

Lawrence T., Newegg
7 February 2013
  • Pros: Low price, lightweight so it's easy to throw into the trash
  • Cons: These SUCK. They are listed as Circumaural -- LIE. They do NOT have some necessary gaming features -- no clip to attach to shirt, no mute, no volume control on cable (or on individual ears for that matter), their upper range is VERY low volume and the bass resolution is sorely lacking. Finally, when, after owning them for LESS than a month, and the jack started stripping, I was told, TOO BAD. NEVER buying Koss again.

Died after two months

Alexander W., Newegg
8 August 2012
  • Pros: Was a solid headset while it worked, good mic and audio quality
  • Cons: None originally, apart from discomfort after prolonged use. Two months after buying however the mic died. Was working fine, unpligged the mic and plugged it back in again 10 minutes later and it didn't work

  • Pros: Nice sound, Comfortable
  • Cons: Longest a pair has lasted me is 18 months

Great while they work

Ronald H., Newegg
24 March 2011
  • Summary: Had to trash the headphones and go back to a pair of Sennheisers that weren't at all comfortable. I liked this headset but because of my experience with it cannot recommend it to others.
  • Pros: Comfortable feed, good sound quality at first, microphone worked fine for spoken language programs.
  • Cons: After about 3 months the sound quality died out; certain frequencies would be lost leaving any sound coming out distorted.

SB45

Lynn B., Newegg
1 June 2010
  • Summary: if you care anything about how your headset should sound run from these! even after much manual eq adjustment they are bad sounding.
  • Pros: look nice, fit nice! good highs and the base is ok! the mic sounds fine!
  • Cons: 1khz to 2khz is so bad it sounds like a paper box! the midrange sounds like these should be at the dollar store! the mic boom is very poorly done and it doesn't adjust well.

Was fine while it worked

Eoin Horgan, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: Was ok for a while, lost all sound from left ear after 4 or 5 months. Also the wire is ridiculously long, very hard to manage if walking around.
