    Huge Disappointment - $15 Quality with $30 Price

    Posted
    DawJohnson

    Though $30 does not quite put these earbuds into "premium" territory, it is a step above the base entry points and should be expected to deliver quality. Sony's collection of $20 buds are a little lacking in the volume but have tremendous range and detail--as well as great comfort. V-Mode's Bass Freqs are simply incredible, and you can find them online for $20. These headphones are just not that great. The bass is EXTREMELY disappointing (no punch or shake to it) and the highs are a bit hissy and staticy. None of the three sizes of buds fit my ears great, something I have never before experienced with a purchase. Worse, the volume simply sucks. I cannot even hear my iPod if I drop the volume below the midway point, and I need to get into the highest 15% of the volume meter to get the desired sound. This is particularly weird since the noise isolation is so good--since you're hearing so few external distractions, you would assume the headphone volume would come across as enhanced. They seem to be manufactured well enough, although durability could be a question. The cords go directly into the ear pieces (there is no "buffer" between the two), so you have to yank on the wire to get them out of your ear. The "straight' plug versus the "L-shaped" one is also unfortunate. Definitely avoid--there are better products at Best Buy.

    Ive gone through other headphones before, including other KOSS headphones and Creative Labs. In terms of sound quality, Better than expected. In terms of Bass, it covers deep bass very well. The heavy bass doesn't cut off from the overall sound quality. In terms of style, they're pretty un-ordinary. usually, ear buds are shaped like 7's the style of the buds is simply the top part of the conventional, with no adjacent plastic. In my case, I really didn't like the style, because they would fall out of my ear, even when I replaced the rubber tips. Also, they just make you look weird, like you have little sires sticking directly out your ear. Overall, Not well on style for my taste, a good value nonetheless. If you want clear, rich sound, and deep bass without sound cutoff these are the buds for you

    I bought these to replace my broken KOSS portapro because I decided to go with earbuds instead. I prefer headphones that can deliver a deep bass(e.g, portapro) and I was hesitant at first buying these little puppies. Anyway, I pulled the trigger and oh boy! The clarity and bass are amazing for the price. They fit very snug and blocks out unwanted noise. If you like deep bass like I do I guarantee you wont be disappointed. I gave it a 4/5 for durability because the cord looks like it could get damaged easily because it seems thin to me. That should not be a problem though because KOSS has lifetime warranty on there headphones.

    Great sound quality, comfort is a bit lacking

    I loved my new KOSS headphones, I've been listening to them for about a month now, the sound quality is just outstanding, best I've probably ever listened to. The noise blocking is fantastic, I listen to them in English, and in my planning block, completely blocking out the kids talking around me. This I love, but the fit is a bit uncomfortable. After about a month now, they tend to fall out. Such as when I mow the lawn, they come loose, and I frequently have to push them back into my ear. I've tried the larger size, but that's too big. If you can get them in your ear correctly, enjoy the jams and no outside noise!

    Bought these for myself December 2010 and have used them on my Zune daily since that time with much satisfaction. The rub for me is the price...a tad high compared to others of similar quality. I had tried several types and due to the large nature of my ear openings had trouble finding a product that would fit my ear right. These work for me comfortably in activities from working, traveling to fairly strenuous workouts. While there are ones available with better sound quality, these fit the need nicely and have been very durable.

    2/5 on the pricing because these are nearly the same as Skullcandys, but just a bit better. 5/5 on the sound quality because they sound magnificent. 5/5 on the comforting because I've been listening to them for the time for the past 1 hour and no sore ear lobes. 2/5 on the durability because the cord feels cheap for the price I paid, Skullcandy has good cords for half the price. Overall 4/5 because I felt they were somewhat similar to Skullcandys and sort of paid more for a different brand..

    I bought new earbuds because my iPhone ones lost their cushions. I like Koss so I bought these and they were terrible. No matter how I positioned them in my ears they would fall out with ease. They also didn't feel as comfortable as you would expect them to be. I was disappointed and returned them right away. If you are curious, my ears are not real big so maybe that was a contribution to the failure.

    Don't waste your money

    Don't waste your money on this rubbish. Unless, of course, you only need a pair of earbuds that will last 3-4 weeks. After 4 weeks, get ready for one of the buds to die. Honestly, they money you will spend on these, added to the money you will spend to replace them, will be better used if saved for one set of great earbuds.
