Summary: The Koss UR55 stereo headphones are great to use with portable players. They give you deep, well-defined bass, good instrument separation and very nice clarity in the mid to high frequencies. However, these audio headphones leak sound and do not include an extension cable or plug adapter.
Summary: Well, I created an account just to review these. So here it goes:
I was looking for an inexpensive (<50$) portable pair after my incipio f38 and my JVC s400 broke down (these are ridiculously good headphones for the money by the way). I got these after I read tdockweiler's review and mod topic.
Pros: Low Price, soundstage, smooth treble, clean bass and mids, sturdy cable, vocals sound really good
Cons: Not worth your money if you don't mod, bass doesn't go deep, isolation, ugly
Summary: Koss UR 55 Studio Pulse An inexpensive performer
There's a vast array of inexpensive headphones out there. Thousands of them. But every now and then, if you sample around, much like wine, you can fine something inexpensive that is actually pretty good.
Pros: Inexpensive ($35), Open Air, Light, Neutral, Decent bass response, Good detail
Cons: A little flimsy, kind of small, foam could have been nicer
Summary: This is a review of a fully modded UR-55. Out of the box it's good, but not great. Without the mod the mids are very slightly muffled with some songs and the bass can be bloated. All this is caused by the grill and fabric behind it.
Pros: Cheap, Bass, Soundstage, Imaging, Great Mids
Cons: Could be more comfortable, bass bloated and slightly muffled mids without mod (congestion)
