Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

Listening to music, the higher registers are good and these earbuds are OK. But when listening to voice, those low-middle registers are really distorted. Since I listen to a lot of plays, audio books etc, I can't use them. But for $5, I'll cant return...

I Keep Buying Them But Don't Know why

 

I have bought more of these over the past five years than I can count, and I don't know why. They're flimsy, they don't last, and I can always count on one earbud always failing within a month. I guess I buy them because they're Koss. My advice is:...

none

flimsy, short life

amazing quility effective and affordable! bang for your buck

 

I wouldn't complain about anything with these earphones. Their effective blocking all sounds couldn't even hear my mom beeping at me when I was waiting for her. She was actually trying to get my attention for like 5-19 minutes until some student waved...

Absolutely none

Awesome.

 

Comes with three types of cushions, one is a rubber kind, the other is the soft memory foam type stuff. Great sound quality

None with the product, just my ears

Great price! Good Performance!

 

My RMA just narrowly expired and I can't be bothered by the manufacturer's warranty. However this probably wouldn't stop me from buying another pair.

Cheap! At least on newegg they are. The Earphones look good, the cord has a nice rubberized feel to it. Koss gives you plenty of replacement foams. (2 pairs of foam, 1 pair of rubber) ; They sound(ed) Great! Not quite as good as another pair of Koss...

The foam on the earphones is almost too soft. Way softer than you'd expect. Softer than JVC Marshmallows ; The end of the aux plug isn't curved, this resulted in them breaking just the other day ; (The good old: broken inside the wire right at the end...

Almost as good for one fourth the price

 

I wanted ear buds with an inline volume control and that can seal out a lot of the background noise. I've paid $50+ in the past for other brands, but when my last pair broke, I thought I'd try these well-rated Koss buds. Pros: Seal out background noise...

Great sound!

 

This is my second pair of koss ear buds. I really like them because they don't give me the underwater sound like the plastic tipped ear buds. Go get you some you won't regret the purchase.

Solid Product

 

Makes good use of the Koss name. I especially like the soft earbuds and the overall sturdiness of the product. Nedd not need the volume control on the device.
