Summary: DESIGN: Well, there is no way around it: the TD/80 is not pretty. The good thing is that it's not even trying, so it's not ugly either. Once I started to use and abuse it, it started to grow on me: I like its utilitarian Soviet approach, I really do.
Pros: PANZER construction, Volume dials on both phones, Vintage look, Good cord, Koss Lifetime Guarantee, Boom-Boom-da-Boom BASS sweetness.
Cons: Somewhat muddy sound overall, noticeable dip in upper midrange, little soundstage. Comfort issues (hard clamping).
