Summary: These headphones are a classic example of the Koss name in electronics. They are very comfortable over the ear headphones and have excellent sound quality. They are sound canceling as block all but the loudest external noise when listening with them I would recommend them to anyone needing reasonably priced headphones with great sound quality.
Excerpt: Purchased these for occasional use and found them very comfortable and great sound quality, I use them in the stereo, and now in the television. The headphones do a great job of keeping out unwanted background noise also. These headphones have a small volume control on the cord making volume adjustment nice and easy. the headphones have a nice long cord making it easier to move around while connected.
Summary: Long time UR29 user at work and home. By far, the Koss UR29 has out-performed any other headphone I have purchased for its durability, extended-use comfort, sound quality, low leakage of sounds yet allowing muffled sounds in for co-worker/cohabitant communication.
Summary: If you want to drive a Corvette, don't buy a Vega and complain.
Pros: Very inexpensive, Decent sound not great but If I wanted great I would have spent over $200. If the price and name didn't get you to buy a pair the long extension cord just made the deal way sweeter and still use them today!
Cons: I don't really have anything bad to say about them. With these headphones from Koss I got way more than I paid for. sure you can get better but then you wouldn't be reading this review now would you. Thanks New Egg for your continued better deal than a deal deal that we get every day. And Koss, good better best right?
Pros: lets face it, you get what you pay for but sometimes you get more. I gave Koss 4 eggs for these reasons. I have owned real nice headphones and didn't use them very much but when I did they were heavy! These aren't. Course they are made of plastic but what isn't anymore? They are cheap, affordable, decent sound and come with a long cable which is way nice. So if you are looking for quality, spend more money. Looking to keep noise out or in or both then these are very a...
Cons: plastic could be a little thicker as they are a bit flimsy but other than that nothing.
Summary: For the price of these, you will be very hard pressed to find headphones that sound as good so I can't really complain. I have bought a few of these, 1 for me and 1 for someone else and they both shorted out at the jack and 1 also had shorted out at the headphones so be cautious not to make any sudden tugs on the cord. As long as you are very careful with the cord, you should have no problems.
