Great litte earbugs

  • 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 results.
  • Pros: Low price, comfortable fit
  • Cons: No in - line volume control

  • 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 over time.
  • Pros: great bass, stays in ear better  than most and great price
  • Cons: wire gets tangled, may not fit everyone's ears

  • Excerpt: I must be the only one who loves these,they are cheap and sound great 1) THE SPARK PLUG That is exactly what it looks like,has 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...
  • Pros: cheap,sound quality
  • Cons: bass

Great sound if you can fit them

  • 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).
  • Pros: Sound quality, price
  • Cons: Fitting them, comfort, durability

  • Excerpt: Canal phones, that is what these are. Unlike conventiional in ear phones these actually sit in your ear canal, driving bass directly to your ear drum without sound leakage. They also cut sound off from the outside world, as well as stopping people from hearing what you are listening to therefore providing music in peace. There's actaully a few of these canal isolating ear buds available. Some cost as much as £300!
  • Pros: Really deep bass, full rich amazing sound for earbuds
  • Cons: Hard to put in, especially when in a rush

Sparking Out The Competition

  • Excerpt: Firstly, a little about my situation before I purchased these amazing little gadgets. I will be the first to admit, I'm not friendly to my headphones. They get dragged around, trodden on, bashed about in my bag, and put through far too much torment for each pair to last long, and so I normally find myself having to fork out for a new pair every few months. When my last pair fell apart and, despite my efforts with a soldering iron (doing far more harm than good!
  • Pros: Amazing Bass Response, Comfortable Fit
  • Cons: Amazing Bass Response, Large Size, No In - Line Volume .

Stereophones to keep the outside world at bay

oldwasp, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Product & Packaging *********************** Koss Spark Plug Stereophone with spare set of ear cushions. They arrived in a cardboard backed blown plastic. The cardboard is purply blue, with instructions on the back on how to insert the ear piece diagrams also help to show how to do this. The earphones are displayed inside the plastic so you can see what they look like before buying.
  • Pros: Good Bass, Noise Reduction
  • Cons: no carry case, need to be cleaned often

  • Excerpt: Well as i said already have to say that the product was reasonably effective in what it was designed to do, certainly delivering the extar bass. This is a good theory and certainly along the right lines (making far more sense that active noise reduction), but a poorly designed cheap product. Firstly i found and indeed have heard this of others that they were extrememly difficult even slightly painful to fit properly.
  • Pros: Good bass, reasonable isolation
  • Cons: parts easily losts, flimsy poor design .

They Really Are 'In Ear'.

samcabal, Ciao
23 November 2004
  • Excerpt: What do I want to go with my MP3 player so that I can enjoy my music - I know some earphones, I think I'll treat myself, spend a bit of money, so what am I looking for. I want them to be small and not very visible - let me browse - what's this 'The Plug' - let me have a look. I guess 'Koss' are good make, they sound familiar, but I'm not too sure where I've heard of them before.
  • Pros: Size, Weight, Sound .
  • Cons: Difficult To Get In .
