Koss ESP-950 Electrostatic System

 

People beware, as you're about to be lured into the most kickass headphone ever for ~$600. I am so tempted to get these to complement my HD800. They are THAT good, even

The ESP-950 has a really big potential. Rumor says that the ESP-950 is supposedly what an improved Sennheiser HE60 would be like! I am certain that the ESP-950, with some kickass electrostatic amplifier like the HeadAmp KGSS would really earn you a...

Koss ESP-950 Over-EarHeadphones

 

These are amazing headphones. I hear a lot of people complaining about the fact that these headphones sound "bright", or "aren't warm", or don't have "the right color". This is not a bug, it's a feature. In fact, it's THE feature. They operate on...

Koss ESP-950 Over-EarHeadphones

 

For comparason's sake, I've got a Headroom amp I use to power Sony MDR V900's, Grado SR200's & my top dynamic choice: Sennheisser 580's. The sound source for all is a desktop Nakamichi CD system that I use on my nightable.
