Amazon

Amazon:

Audio

Audio:

"I transcribe audio files, sometimes hard to understand -- but with these headphones, my job is a lot easier."

_
"I swear by these koss titanium headphones, Great price,good quality and best of all,amazing audio range"
_

_
"]I know it was pretty cheap, and have purchased more professional headphones -- Audio Technica (at a lot higher price)."
_
"Another great Koss audio product."

Cable

Cable:
"My only small negative comment is that it would be better to have the cord connected on one side only."
_
"My only real complain is that the cord is too short -- even though I just sit at my computer, I do need to be more than 3 feet away from my CPU."
_
"The first ones we bought failed after several months--the cord going into the ear piece came loose, or something."
_
"After a while the cord frays and the earpiece foam starts to degrade from my sweat."
_
"All of those things aside, I have owned these for three (3) months, used them less than 20 times and always at home, and the cord near the plug is already broken."
_
"Purchased in January this year, and the cord already broke."
_
"I plug a high-quality cable (Zeskit 12') into the back of the TV and these headphones into it."
_
"The cord is a good length, but what I like about it is the volume control is inline and in a convenient spot on the cord."
_
"Excellent ... With a very long cord."
_
"The headphones fit comfortably around my ears and the volume cord is long enough where I can easily get to it."
_
"I like being able to adjust the sound through the control on the cord."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I hate the in ear headphones they are not very comfortable to me."

_
"Set is well made and comfortable, about the only negative for me is they are not very light, but they are sturdy which is more important to me."
_
"Like many other reviewers have stated, these are very comfortable headphones and produce great sound, unfortunately Koss skimped miserably on the wiring for this product."
_
"I was very disappointed with the fit of the headset and have been unable to find a position on my head which is comfortable for more than 15 minutes."

"The only problem is after about a year you get a short in the connecting end of the headphone and one side or the other won't play."
_

Connector

Connector:
"It has been great for about 1 year of use, then one of the speaker started to malfunction, and had to twist the audio jack to make it work."
_
"The wiring is just to flimsy at the jack, don't expect more than two to six months unless you are extremely careful."
_
"Sound is great, although I failed to notice they have stereo jacks rather than mini-pins."
_
"The jack failed a few days back and I have to keep adjusting them every time I move even a little."
_
"Great quality, but the audio jack curse will strike, eventually."
_
"I have a set of Monster DNA that are 1 1 2 years old and the wire and jacks are in perfect condition, great sound, but be prepared to spend some dollars."
_
"Sound is great, although I failed to notice they have stereo jacks rather than mini-pins."
_
"While I cannot compare them to my Sennheiser headphones ($40 on for a pc set, $150 for a low end audiophile set) they still give decent sound and come with a 6.3 jack adapter."
_
"The sound is excellent; the volume control on the cord is very handy, and having the 2-way phono jack is a very nice feature that I have not seen on a product of this kind for quite a few years."

Control

Control:
"I've never broken a pair but, yes, the foam pads have worn out and the volume control or two have gotten flaky (but I leave mine at maximum so it doesn't matter."
_
"Volume control is much needed as my hearing is not the best"
_
"In line volume control doesn't work that well .... have to keep changing it ... cuts out but I like the sound that they make..."
_
"in-line volume control failed and pads wore out sooner than expected"
_
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."
_
"Unfortunately, the reason I had to replace them was because the volume control broke."
_
"The volume control slider works well for reducing volume level, but will not completely turn off the sound."
_
"Love the adjustable volume control on the wire, very useful."
_
"I use the vol control on the headphones, works great."
_
"The cord is a good length, but what I like about it is the volume control is inline and in a convenient spot on the cord."

Design

Design:
"For me, these weren't a good design for gym usage."
_
"They are not the best if you are on a flight, frankly they weren't designed for that."
_
"Light weight comfortable design."
_
"This is a thoughtfully designed product and so far it works great (I'll post an update if it breaks)."
_
"Of course not everyone is a fan of the open-ear design, but that's a small price to pay for such excellent sound."
_
"nicely designed, good sound, comfortable, very reasonable price."
_
"They are a bit bulky and the design is a bit busy, otherwise they are perfect for my needs."

Distortion

Distortion:
"It's too easy to listen to your music too loud because of the clarity of the song and cause damage to one of the speakers in the headphones causing distortion at higher levels."
_
"These headphones have exceptional sound, great fidelity, no perceptible distortion, seem a bit flimsy and are fairly uncomfortable for long term wear."
_
"It's also hard to get these things to distort no matter how loud U blast the music."
_
"Best headphones for the money don't distort"
_
"These headphones have exceptional sound, great fidelity, no perceptible distortion, seem a bit flimsy and are fairly uncomfortable for long term wear."
_
"Nice bass, no distortion, handles high volume, inexpensive."
_
"The KTXPro1 audio reproduction is quite good for most sources; lows are adequate without bass distortion and highs are clear with sounding tinny."
_
"To me the sound just seems very clear and not at all distorted."
_

Durable

Durable:
"Down graded to 2 stars ... these are ok value at $10, but at their retail price of $20 NOT a good value given that for a little more you can get the more durable, better sounding (though ugly) Koss Sportapro or Koss KSC75 (better for excercise - but not everyone likes the clip style).Not recommended."
_
"But the Koss KTXPRO1 Titanium Portable Headphones with Volume Control from AMAZON not only sound good, they're actually durable!"
_
"I tried various brands and found that some of them were not durable, some were not comfortable, and some had terrible sound."
_
"These are of good quality and the price was reasonable, but I would recommend folks just go straight to the better fitting, more durable Porta Pros."
_
"I use these on my computers and they are very durable headphones with a great sound and an even better price."
_
"and a perfectly comfortable, durable pair of headphones (over the ear, velour cushions, long sturdy cord, self suspending headband, sort of like the Koss in this review) sat collecting dust for several years."
_
"The volume can be adjusted to a high level which I love, they have great bass and great highs, are comfortable and durable."
_
"Its not the more durable in world, and can develop a short pretty easily."

Fit

Fit:
"These are a replacement for my Radio Shack Titanium Pro35 I've had for twelve years that recently broke :( They sound pretty good but don't fit as tight as I would like."
_
"Am not satisfied with product they don't fit snug on the ear loosing sound and the volume is very low,i put the volume up all the way on my player and all the way on the earphones and it was still rather low volume there not worth 15 dollars"
_
"The sound quality is great, and the head band is adjustable, but the headphones are too small, they don't fit comfortably on my ears and if they aren't comfortable I won't use them for watching T. V., which is why I bought them."
_
"I thought that these where going to be the same but I have to admit i was so wrong the sound was amazing and they adjust to fit my head and I have a small head plus these head phones are very comfortable to wear."
_
"If you have a larger head, these might not fit all too well."
_
"Fit well, but maybe not quite as well as the JVC HAS160B flats."
_
"Fits perfectly and the sound is great."
_
"I can fit them so that they are at the top of my ears and hear them quite well."
_
"Fit: I am a small person and this product fits me comfortably but at the smallest setting, with the earpieces perhaps 1 4 lower than would be ideal but still quite comfortable."
_
"Love the sound of these headphones...can hear a slight buzz on left side at high volume (when bass is boosted), but other than that they sound and fit great."

Frequency

Frequency:
"The frequency range is good but could be better in some respects."
_
"Their sound is smooth, unforced, with excellent balance across the frequency range."
_
"All frequency responses are EXCELLENT !"
_
"Now, if you want NO outside sound intrusion and a great, full-spectrum frequency in your own little sound chamber, I'd recommend something more along the lines of the Sony MDR-V6 I got in 2013 for $68."
_
"Not only do these headphones stay on my head during physical activity, they sound pretty damn good with decent bass, mid-range and hi frequencies represented..and they're cheap!"

Heavy

Heavy:
"I do not recommend this model if you are a heavy traveler or hard on your phones-The fragile build and construction makes this subject to quick damage."
_
"The only problem is that these headphones are rather cheap and flimsy, so if you're a heavy headphones user, you'll probably break them within a few years."
_
"All the over the ear headsets I've tried were either heavy or just plain uncomfortable."
_
"I still own Koss Pro 4A headphones that I bought in 1975 and they still sound great....but they are heavy and the older I get the more that is not comfortable."
_
"A little too bass heavy, but that sometimes works well with portable devices."
_
"I would recommend this to anyone that would like to have decent sound response (great for books) and not have a bulky or heavy headphone."
_
"I love them for their durability and sound quality, but they are heavy, hot and very good at blocking outside noise."
_
"They are quite comfortable, not heavy or overly warm."
_
"My only concern was the plug did not look very sturdy, but after 3 months of pretty heavy use, so far NO problems!"

Kindle

Kindle:
"I haven't been able to find any headphones that will work on the Kindle Fire HDX."
_
"Great sound... wasted my money on the ear buds which broke... using on my kindle fire hdx 8.9..."
_
"It was NOT compatible with my Kindle Fire, as it stated it was."

_
"WORKS GREAT WITH KINDLE FIRE."

Level

Level:
"The volume control slider works well for reducing volume level, but will not completely turn off the sound."
_
"The volume control is a nice plus, but it can't turn the sound off, but for me it's more than adequate to adjust for different track levels when shuffling music."
_
"I should add that these are NOT noise isolating, but at normal levels when they are on your ears nobody around you should be able to hear them too distinctly."
_
"The third developed a bad low level rumble on the left but they are generally good so I ordered another."
_
"The volume can be adjusted to a high level which I love, they have great bass and great highs, are comfortable and durable."

Light

Light:
"Set is well made and comfortable, about the only negative for me is they are not very light, but they are sturdy which is more important to me."
_
"They weren't ever the most comfortable headphones, but they were very light so often times you barely noticed you had them on."
_
"I wouldn't recommend them for rough use as they appear to be mostly light plastic."
_
"You can not adjust the overall width of the headset so they may not fit perfectly but given the light weight and foam ear pieces it is unlikely you will feel too much tension on your head."
_
"Light weight comfortable design."
_
"Great quality, comfortable, sound adjustment and light."
_
"Great sound, light weight and very transparent"
_
"Nice light headphones that work fine."
_
"They are light to wear and give great sound"

Listening

Listening:
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."
_
"Comfort is ok for short listening times, but the headphones were not comfortable for extended listening."
_
"However; the earpieces are uncomfortable after an hour or so of listening."
_
"Get these and smile while listening to great sound."
_
"I bought a pair for bedtime listening and liked them so much I bought a second pair for my recliner."
_
"The Koss KTXPRO1 Titanium Portable Headphones are recommended by Sharry Edwards to use when listening to low frequency tones during Human BioAcoustic sound therapy."
_
"So, overall, these headphones would be great for listening to music, playing games with on the computer, and also a welcomed addition to any home theater system."
_
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."

Noise

Noise:
"She plugs them into her Roku remote so that we don't get noise complaints from neighbors."
_
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."
_
"I'm not an audiophile by any means so sound quality has never been a big whoop to me, but this canned effect along with being able to hear the ambient noise around me is quite annoying."
_
"ProsGot them for freeGood, even sound (including bass)In-line volume controlCan get quite loudConsNot isolating at allLong, tangly cordCompared to my other pair of headphones (JVC noise canceling), these aren't quite as good."
_
"No noises, excellent sound."
_
"The only problem with this set is it allows a lot of ambient noise through."
_
"Again the sound was really good, and I noticed a reduction in line noise that I had gotten used to with the old Sony phones."
_
"Good for testing but noise insulation is not top notch."
_
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."
_
"The sound comes through clear enough that external noise don't compete much with the sound coming from the headphones."
_
"Cancels out noise well."

Plastic

Plastic:
"And before you criticize me for being too picky, be forewarned that plastic waste is getting broken into tiny pieces and floating around in the ocean and causing many problems, one of which is that it is ending up in sea salt products (see the Scientific American article, among others), so you might ask yourself if you want to be eating the plastic later (or feeding it to your kids and grandkids) or if you prefer to recycle it properly now."
_
"My only complaints are about the unlabeled plastic and the polystyrene."
_
"It's made of cheap plastic, and one of the earpieces has already broken off the headband."
_
"I bought these for my 9 yr old for his birthday that was on 4 04 and they are broken already....the side plastic that holds the ear piece broke off and you can't fix it"
_
"However, I used them for about 2 months and the plastic piece that holds the speaker broke off."
_
"I took the unit to Radio Shack with my last pair to have the wires re-soldered at the driver end after they broke only to see that within the plastic casing around the wires the actual copper wires were thinner than human hair and there was only about four thin strands of wire for each headphone drive."
_
"There are also two molded plastic pieces that hold the headphones, the clear one made of PET (#1 plastic - yeah! )"
_
"They break kinda easy, the plastic braket on the side will snap with pressure..."
_
"Even though it's made of light plastic, it has a great sound! "
_
"Koss actually used to make a higher quality version of this headphone made from heavier black plastic with nice leather trim, but they discontinued it about 10 years ago."
_

Plug

Plug:
"It's also hard to find the smaller plug in."
_
"Also the flexible plug has broken and had to be taped together to be useable."
_
"All of those things aside, I have owned these for three (3) months, used them less than 20 times and always at home, and the cord near the plug is already broken."
_
"However, the point at which the wire enters the 3.5 mm plug head, repeated bending with seemingly inadequate support led to the early failure of this otherwise good headset."
_
"I purchased these for use by my wife who was using ear plugs with her MP3 player and was dissatisfied with them."
_
"I really prefer the performance of the L-Plug as shown, but it's a hassle to return and will give the straight plug a try ONLY because of the reasonable price."
_
"I plug a high-quality cable (Zeskit 12') into the back of the TV and these headphones into it."
_
"This is the fourth pair I've had and they are durable, except that the pin plug connection only lasts about 12 months, and then it shorts out."
_
"these are great sounding with cheap construction; the plug will eventually stop working due totypical wear of the cord"
_
"So much more comfortable than the ear plugs that can hold bacteria."
_
"Like the 2 different adapter plugs for all portable devices with standard 3.5mm as well as the 6.3 mm for stereos."

Price

Price:
"If you compare them to 100 dollar head phones you will be disappointed, but if you need a decent pair for a decent price these are pretty good"
_
"Not the best quality - I use them for transcription - but for the price, a great value! "
_
"However, at this price, you will need to compromise and sacrifice on construction and build quality which is poor."
_
"It's made of cheap plastic, and one of the earpieces has already broken off the headband."
_
"Great sound... wasted my money on the ear buds which broke... using on my kindle fire hdx 8.9..."
_
"I like my music, and have worked in recording studios (and owned a small project studio) for some years, and for an inexpensive set headphones these punch above their weight, I was surprised how good they sound for the money, a smooth sound, not to bright, and good bass."
_
"These headphones are relatively cheap but give pretty good sound for the price."
_
"Great inexpensive headphones for the office."
_
"But for the price, I still give these 4* because of the clarity of sound and comfort."
_
"Great inexpensive head phones, what else from Koss"

Quality

Quality:
"Did not particularly care about the quality of the sound because I am not really able to tell excellent from just ok. Often listen to books rather than music."
_
"Not the best quality - I use them for transcription - but for the price, a great value! "
_
"However, at this price, you will need to compromise and sacrifice on construction and build quality which is poor."
_
"Koss no longer makes quality headphones, and if you call Koss and complain, you will get hung up on."
_

_
"It was not expensive but it is very good quality and will provide many hours of good listening to music and computer games."
_

Radio

Radio:
"This model is not as robust as the Radio Shack model."
_
"These headphones correct both problems in my digital radio (allows the bass sound to come through and allows for more precision in volume control).Cons:1."
_
"They sound very much like the Radio Shack Pro 35As, but they are so uncomfortable that they are useless."
_
"Much to my surprise, not only does the headphones should good, they even sound better then the Radio Shack model."
_
"Problem is I've since lost the receipt for Radio Shack and the plastic (?"
_
"They are very comfortable, and I have some pairs that are more than 10 years old now (under the older Radio Shack brand), and they still work just fine."
_
"They stay on my head, sound great for news and information radio, and I like the volume control."
_
"Same as the Radio Shack ones I love so much but cheaper."
_
"Also perfect for Internet radio or Netflix listening!"
_
"I am very happy with these headphones and will never buy Radio Shack headphones again."

Range

Range:
"The sound: low lows, high highs, nice frequency balance, not sharp or irritating to me, but not as clear in the high mids as headphones in the $150 and up range."
_
"I can tell you that I have thus far (2+ listening hours, during which I have seen the soundstage and dynamic range open up like a May flower) been unable to duplicate this warble in my brand new KTXPRO1s (which, for those of you who've done your homework know, shares most if not all of its driver design with probably at least a half-dozen other Koss products, including the KSC75, Sportapro, Portapro, etc?"
_
"But they do not sound as good, particularly in the higher range and they do not fit well!"
_
"But if you want to actually hear well mixed sound across all three ranges then by all means, give them a try."
_
"The frequency range is good but could be better in some respects."
_
"Their sound is smooth, unforced, with excellent balance across the frequency range."
_
"* Unexpectedly good bass response* Incredibly accurate sound range and reproduction* Volume knob easy to locate and useCONS:* None that I've seen."
_
"The bass response is incredible, accuracy of sound production the best I've heard anywhere near this price range... and they even out-perform headphones I've heard that cost considerably more."

Response

Response:
"Their freq response goes down to 10 Hz...but they were so tight I complained about them hurting my ears after a short period...these have none of those issues."
_
"The bass response was not as good as expected."
_
"They are lightweight and have excellent bass response, which I haven't found in other small headphones."
_
"Even at our ripoff price, people were thrilled to get such a good clear bass response."
_
"* Unexpectedly good bass response* Incredibly accurate sound range and reproduction* Volume knob easy to locate and useCONS:* None that I've seen."

Rubber

Rubber:
"the blue rubber band on the top can get annoying and the headphones do hurt my ears after a while, but i'm still happy with my purchase."
_
"It's got that weird blue rubber thing at the top."
_
"I agree the overall look of the headset is cheesy and dated, especially with the rubber flap thing."
_
"Not bad headphones..the blue rubber headstrap is a bit uncomfortable and takes some getting used to."
_
"Not terribly fond of the new rubber strap which doesn't get along well with my hair, but hey."
_
"My 8 year old was just fine, the 5 year old I actually just twisted the rubber over once and that made them fit well for her, they were usable even without that."
_
"Incredible comfort: the rubber strap allows you to fit them snugly to your head without contact with the hard plastic and it also gives the effect of closing them gently onto your head for a secure feeling; then add the freely-swivelling earpieces and the total impact is a feeling almost like they're not there!"
_
"The rubber strap at the top seems like it could be easily torn, also the in line volume control, how well is that built?"
_
"The complaint by others about the rubber headband, under the ajustable headband, was not a problem for me."

Sound

Sound:
"A few months ago they started to have problems getting sound through the right ear -- I was able to fix it temporarily by fiddling with the volume control, but now the right ear has cut out permanently."
_
"Did not particularly care about the quality of the sound because I am not really able to tell excellent from just ok. Often listen to books rather than music."
_
"In line volume control doesn't work that well .... have to keep changing it ... cuts out but I like the sound that they make..."
_
"I just use them to monitor the TV and the sound is OK but not great."
_
"I ended up not using them as much as I wanted expected and traded for something more versatile even if it doesn't sound as good."
_
"These are a replacement for my Radio Shack Titanium Pro35 I've had for twelve years that recently broke :( They sound pretty good but don't fit as tight as I would like."
_

Speaker

Speaker:
"It's too easy to listen to your music too loud because of the clarity of the song and cause damage to one of the speakers in the headphones causing distortion at higher levels."
_
"It has been great for about 1 year of use, then one of the speaker started to malfunction, and had to twist the audio jack to make it work."
_
"However, I used them for about 2 months and the plastic piece that holds the speaker broke off."
_
"The ear pads don't pivot to conform to the ear and the speakers are not able to be positioned to hear everything the speakers are putting out."
_
"The right speaker went dead."
_
"thats why these are so good the speakers are phenomenal"
_
"It has been great for about 1 year of use, then one of the speaker started to malfunction, and had to twist the audio jack to make it work."
_
"You can easily remove all but the round speakers and use just the drivers in your ski helmet (if helmet is so designed)."
_
"The SENA unit is a bluetooth intercom and is great except for the speaker quality."
_
"These produce the best sound quality I know of from any speaker system."

Travel

Travel:
"Not really good to travel with, but sturdy enough for my daily use."
_
"I would not recommend these for people who travel by air because they do not cancel outside noise."
_
"They are very comfortable and the sound quality is excellent for under $20.I do get better quality sound from my Skull Candy ear buds but they were twice as much, don't have in-line volume control, have a shorter cord and are not the best for extended wear but are much better for travel."
_
"Unfortunately my travel schedule made this impossible, so we will never know if this is a common problem or simply a fluke."
_
"Great sound and comfort, I will use for travel."
_
"I can be hard on headphones, as I take them with me as I travel, and I am constantly packing them up, but they hold up very well."
_
"travels well (tough enough).recommend as good 'value' headphones."
_
"They don't fold up to a more compact space saving form or fold up flat... for travel and stuff..The most impressive thing about these was the packaging."
_
"GREAT for travel, light, and the adjustable volume control is very helpful."

Value

Value:
"Down graded to 2 stars ... these are ok value at $10, but at their retail price of $20 NOT a good value given that for a little more you can get the more durable, better sounding (though ugly) Koss Sportapro or Koss KSC75 (better for excercise - but not everyone likes the clip style).Not recommended."
_
"The plastic is not the greatest but I overlook it for the value the headphone otherwise provide."
_
"Great value!"
_
"Outstanding value!"
_
"All in all, the KTXPRO1s are an amazing value."
_
"Replacement for same type of headphones that I wore out - sound is great, very comfortable, great value."
_
"Great value."

Volume

Volume:
"I've never broken a pair but, yes, the foam pads have worn out and the volume control or two have gotten flaky (but I leave mine at maximum so it doesn't matter."
_
"In line volume control doesn't work that well .... have to keep changing it ... cuts out but I like the sound that they make..."
_
"in-line volume control failed and pads wore out sooner than expected"
_
"From my point of view the volume control is a negative if only because it can fail and or add noise for your listening pleasure."
_
"I bought this pair in March and the volume control is already broken again."
_
"Unfortunately, the reason I had to replace them was because the volume control broke."
_
"The volume control slider works well for reducing volume level, but will not completely turn off the sound."
_
"Love the adjustable volume control on the wire, very useful."
_
"The cord is a good length, but what I like about it is the volume control is inline and in a convenient spot on the cord."
_
"Easy volume control."

Warranty

Warranty:
"There is a warranty, but the hassle and the shipping cost is about equal to buying a new headset."
_
"Note: I am technical and can do it, if you do it can damage your speakers and void the warranty."
_
"Limited Koss Lifetime Warranty and good customer support.4."
_
"Like I said, the reason I still gave 4 stars is the audio quality and comfort are way above the price range, and I've used the Koss warranty in the past, which is easy, no-hassle replacement."
_
"As always they are covered under Koss' lifetime warranty (they really are good about replacing headphones that break even after general wear and tear) and they come with sound unmatched in this price range except maybe for the Koss Portapros."
_
"Despite having a low quality look, I have not had any problems, and they have a lifetime warranty, so you can get a new (or repaired) pair for the cost of shipping if you ever do have a problem."
_
"The life time warranty is good, but by the time you drive to the post office, stand in that long line, and pay $6 for shipping and handling."

Weight

Weight:
"They're not as comfortable as some other lightweight headphones but I can wear them all day no problem."
_
"You can not adjust the overall width of the headset so they may not fit perfectly but given the light weight and foam ear pieces it is unlikely you will feel too much tension on your head."
_
"I prefer this style of light-weight headphones, but these are uncomfortable because the ear-cups don't rest flat on my ears, so I have to order something else."
_
"These nitpicky things cannot overshadow the outstanding sound in a lightweight headphone for the price."
_
"Light weight comfortable design."
_
"Wear all day while transcribing...lightweight and comfortable once you get used to over the head instead of under the chin."
_
"But the headphones are lightweight and comfortable to wear to the extent that more than one occasion I'd forgotten that I even had them on and connected to a device."
_
"Lightweight and comfortable and decent sound quality for the price."
_
"They are lightweight and have excellent bass response, which I haven't found in other small headphones."

iPod

iPod:
"I like these with my computer or CD player but was disappointed that they won't work with my ipod."
_
"The only problem with these is the mini-jack that connects to your iPod, MP-3, computer or whatever device you are using for a source."
_
"I first tried them with my iPod Nano and Creative Zen player, and found they are incredibly good right out of the package -- especially at very low their price."
_
"Also, these are very efficient headphones which can be easily driven from an iPhone or an iPod to loud, undistorted volumes which are too much for my ears."
_
"I jacked up the bass using the ipod's equalizer settings and was pretty impressed."
_
"Work great with my ipod and my computer."
_
"If you want a nice comparison, play something on some standard ipod earbuds, and immediately switch to these."
