Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"I've seen some complain about the detachable cord."
_
"Even the cord is detachable, so you can replace it, if it gets damaged or worn out."
_
"The cord is detachable (plugs on both ends), which is a nice bonus."
_
"My main high end system does not have a headphone jack or a dedicatedheadphone amp (And I can't see justifying a $400 headphone amp for a$100 set of phones especially with the low quality cable these comewith); so I pulled a decent mid-fi stereo (NAD 5425 cd player & Kenwood5520 receiver) out of storage & left them powered up for 24 hours towarm up as they hadn't been used in several years."
_
"The cord is just the right length to extend comfortably from my laptop with -0- tension, and yet not enough slack to get tangled or kinked."
_
"I think it would have been nice to include a longer second cord, 12 or 16 feet, for using when watching TV."
_
"The cord is detachable, which is something I appreciate."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I hate having to adjust my headphones frequently to keep them comfortable and well positioned."
_
"It is not, these produce great sound, and are very comfortable over the ears."
_
"The comfort of the SP330 is very good--it has the deepest cushion of the sealed on-headphones that I own and is extremely light."
_
"Easy to drive and comfortable."
_
"But, for the price and comfort, it's good enough for me."
_
"I hate having to adjust my headphones frequently to keep them comfortable and well positioned."
_
"The grip is firm and comfortable, and it provides a pretty tight seal against outside noise."

Fit

Fit:
"As of now, these things are probably 3 stars, because while they sound nice, they aren't friendly in fit."
_
"The fit on these headphones is amazing."
_
"They require some care in lining up the drivers with the ear canals but there is plenty of flexibility in the headphone joints to achieve a good alignment and fit."
_
"They would fit easily in box 6 inch x 7.5 inch x 1.5 inch."
_
"The foam is open to any placement of the ears, so you can find where it fits and feels best."
_
"The case should have ample room to fit in a small mp3 player as well."

Noise

Noise:
"None of them are good enough to block aircraft cabin noise or prevent road noise in a car bus from stepping on the low notes of your music."
_
"The sound is ok compared to the Porta Pro's, cushion feels excellent and they do keep outside noise out."
_
"The grip is firm and comfortable, and it provides a pretty tight seal against outside noise."
_
"* The tight seal excludes noise nicely."
_
"I don't know if the problem was the headphone amp or the player,but there was some noise, which I've never noticed throughspeakers, so my guess is the headphone amp in the 40 12 had gone bad."

Price

Price:
"What it most reminded me of (other than the bass), was in the 70'sseveral Turntable Cartridge manufacturers had marketing strategies wherethey would put a ridiculous price on their better models & then discountthem by 2 3 at retail."
_
"Very good, but for the price, maybe not great."
_
"I paid about 80 for em, a nice sale price."
_
"These are amazingly good sounding headphones for the price."
_
"You can't go wrong for the price."
_
"These headphones are a piece of cr*p. Recommended to me by an audiophile friend,their sound is inferior to my cheap Panasonic ones."
_
"The sony's have unparalleled sound and they are quite affordable."

Quality

Quality:
")I also had a chance to use them on the JDSLabs Cmoy inexpensive portable amp, and they did very well (unlike some reference headphones which don't do well on it), and are a good match, preserving many of the good qualities that I heard using the SP330s with my reference system."
_
"The sound quality is OK. Not great, but not horrible."
_
"One issue with this sort of headphone is that the quality and level of bass depends on how well it seals with your particular head and ears."
_
"The Phiaton PS320 needs a little more bass (but the quality of what is there is great) but the treble is uneven and artificially airy."
_
"I think I would describe the sound quality as being very neutral, and wide range - like a good pair of near-field monitor loudspeakers."
_
"What's more, a nice quality hard case is included."
_
"I can't quite acclimate myself to the style, as it looks very generic to me, but they are certainly not bad looking, and are made of quality materials that feel good to the touch."

Sound

Sound:
"The HD25 is built to take some abuse (and every part is replaceable) but they cost twice as much as the SP330, and arguably do not sound as good (depending on what you are focusing on in your music).While not perfect, the Koss SP330 are the best headphones I've found for portable use."
_
"As of now, these things are probably 3 stars, because while they sound nice, they aren't friendly in fit."
_
"But these Koss headphones suit my needs perfectly, deliver great sound, and dont leave me feeling like Im missing anything."
_
"That said, they aren't the best sounding headphones I've used."
_
"It is not, these produce great sound, and are very comfortable over the ears."
_
"The sound isolation was decent but not great."
_
"None of these headphones have perfect sound."
_
"The SP330 needs more bass but the sound is otherwise outstanding."
_
"With most headphones, I use the equalizer on my iPod Classic or Astell & Kern AK120 II, but these sound great completely unequalized."
_
"Simply put, these headphones sound great."
_
"The thing they nailed most with this headphone is accurate sound reproduction."
