Basically Earbuds, just a little more uncomfortable. (The Plug)

By mooseherman, 02/06/2011
I tend to prefer larger headphones, as earbuds tend to be uncomfortable and don't provide a very wide spectrum of the EQ field (basically, they have no bass). I had heard that these headphones, made by Koss, whose headphones I enjoyed in the past, were better than the average earbud. The price indicated that they were better as well though they aren't unrealistically expensive. I was attempting to go running with an Ipod and I figured I'd require earbuds and I'd already tangled my last pair, so I tried these, and sure enough, I didn't like them too much. When it comes to clarity and quality of sound, I do think they are better than the Ipod earbuds, and in fact, almost any other pair of earbud headphone I've tried. This would make them ideal for running except for the fact that they don't fit comfortably in the ear, or at least not my ears. This is a constant frustration. I'd rather not have to worry about constantly refitting my headphones while I'm running. The inconvenience of these headphones far outweighs their relatively better sound.
I gave them an average review because while they are slightly better, the price is the same. Since earbuds are terrible, they deserve better than a "Bad" rating. I wanted to like them as much as I liked their studio headphones, but this is just Koss trying to reach the earbuds demographic. Rest assured that abuse of these types of headphones are still incredibly bad for your ears and should probably be avoided. However as long as people are image-conscious and don't think it's cool to walk around with huge headphones on, these will still sell. Hopefully they can find a solution that works for everybody soon because the earbuds game is still weak.

alot of low end (The Plug)

By yoTrakkz, 01/01/2012
I've been using the Koss in ear headphones for about 2 years and a half for listening with my iPod and I've found them to be a nice set of headphones. I got them for a great price online, so I decided to try them out and see if they were worth having. While I'm not 100% sold on the sound quality of the Koss headphones because I have never heard of the name brand before, as I find that the low end presence is a little bit much for my taste, they still do sound good and are definitely worth a try to see if you like the sound from them. I got sick of the standard Apple iPod headphones that just aren't comfortable and don't sound good at all, and these turned out to be a welcoming new pair of headphones that I could actually hear the full spectrum of what I was listening to. They are also pretty comfortable, especially when compared to the standard iPod headphones and the plastic caps come with a few different sizes to correctly fit your ear size. Like I stated before, I got a discount on these from a friend who worked at Koss, and I probably wouldn't have bought them otherwise because the normal price is pretty expensive. Koss makes some pretty good headphones, but most of them are too bottom heavy for my taste, with the Bose Intra in ear headphones included in that. If you are looking for a set of in ear headphones, I would definitely say that these are worth a try, but would also encourage those interested to look into some of the other options out there to compare them to, as these probably are not for everyone. Overall, Koss are a nice set of headphones that are bound to be popular because of their sleek design and the Koss name.
