" For a specific use"

pulvonium, Audiofanzine
13 May 2011
  • Excerpt: This headphone is very poorly rated by audiophiles because it swells excessively low. By happy chance, one that I chose to work the bass with headphones through my Tascam MPBT1 I am very satisfied, but for this very special feature! Otherwise, great reliability over time, even for the foam tips.

  • Excerpt: "Reading the reviews I was initially concerned for getting a loud bass and no treble but then I decided to try them out with my ipod nano 3G. These turned out to be great earbuds with a very comfortable fit and a balanced sound for the price. Bass is great unless you push them too far down, which as expected causes the bass to become very loud, resulting in distorted and unnatural sound. Use them as per the instrunctions and you should get excellent ...
  • Pros: Low price, comfortable fit
  • Cons: No in - line volume control

A novel solution to the earphones for "problem" ears

grahamt, Dooyoo
16 September 2007
  • Excerpt: When I was young I used to do a lot of cycle racing. Cycle racing can be a very dangerous sport. One of my friends in the cycling club to which I belonged was nearly killed on a training run, which could get as competitive as real races, by a learner driver who came round a bend on the wrong side of the road. I've had my spills as well but my most serious injury was, ironically, caused not whilst racing or training.

  • Excerpt: "Originally had the koss 'the plug' headphones and was very happy with their saound and bass. after a while i needed a replacement and thought i would get this newer version. one thing that did annoy me with the old and this new version is the wire gets tangled very easily and is very flimsy when compared to a pair of sony headphones. i have found that these headphones do not fit as well as the previous version did. hopefully this will change ...

  • Excerpt: They may be budget earphones but even still the quaility is not very good. Also the are a bit on the large side. There is a few better earphones in the same price range.

  • Excerpt: Not as good as Sony earbuds. Koss are much larger. They tend to fall out. Sony actually do fit inside the ear in a compact well thought out way. Sony sit in the outer part of the ear opening without risk of passing too far inside. Koss have..

  • Excerpt: "...a white base,silver middle with Koss logo on it,(subtle adverising eh?)with soft ear cushions,shaped like a cone, which are supposed to adapt to your ear size,when fitted properly,,sound is then supposed to be crystal clear and any outside noise should not be heard.they come with 2 spare cushions just in case you loose them 2)What you do with them is roll the soft ear cushion--like you would a earplug--------,put in your ear, they should then adapt ...

Great sound if you can fit them

azatron, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "My main complaint was fitting them into my ears. The ear pieces are basically foam earplugs. So as with foam earplugs, you need to roll and compress the foam between your fingers and before inserting in your ears. The foam pieces are then supposed to expand and create an air-tight fit in your ear (just like foam earplugs). In theory this does work, but it is very cumbersome trying to squeeze the headphones in to a suitable shape before quickly jamming ...
  • Pros: Sound quality, price
  • Cons: Fitting them, comfort, durability

  • Excerpt: "...long these last for but Koss says they should last a life time (as if). However, if they don't, I won't be going back to conventional phones again as they only cost £5 and are impressive in my book. These have slightly better foam seals than the 'Plug' version of these phones, as it expands to fit the shape of your ear canal. I definately recommend to everyone who wants their music to be heard in detail, who needs more bass, who wants to enjoy ...
  • Pros: Really deep bass, full rich amazing sound for earbuds
  • Cons: Hard to put in, especially when in a rush
