Cheap Adequate Headphones


I bought these headphones because they were only $15 on sale, and they were about what you would expect for $15. The durability is neither great nor terrible, and the sound quality was about the same.

Low Price, Decent Sound Quality

Sometimes warm, loud, and questionable durability

Three pairs later and they're still a good investment for my ears and budget.


I bought my first pair of Koss TD-61 headphones three years ago because I needed a pair of headphones to use at my computer and to listen to music in my home. They fit my needs so well, I've bought two pairs since then.

Good sound quality, long cord, sturdy

Everybody else wants my pair

Hard to beat for $20


I've been using these at work for 2 years and have enjoyed them. They're comfortable and I don't get much moisture build-up like some reviewers have - but I live in a desert climate.

Reasonable sound, long cord, comfortable, inexpensive

Thin cord. Doesn't keep out any background noise

Koss TD 61 Headphones: Great Fit and Durable Product for Kids Use


When it comes to headphones, I probably have a more limited spectrum about what would be a good high quality ?sounding? product because I, myself, have a limitation with sound quality ? I have a hearing defect. After hearing a credit card embossing...

Great Fit, long lasting, comfortable

Minor adjustment factors

Money well spent elsewhere


I purchased the Koss TD 61 for listening while I work. The current pair of headphones is a Radio Shack Optimus Nova 71. They are a $12 pair that actually sound great. But they are uncomfortable for more than 30 minutes.

light weight, comfortable

poor sound

Great headphones.


I love these things. I was debating between these, the Jensen JF25 and the JVC HA-G11 (my second pair). I decided to get these for a few reasons. I didn't like the way the Jensen ones looked and felt. They just felt way to flimsy for my liking, so...

Well built, looks good, great sound

Just a Good Pair of Headphones


I have many friends who have purchased the TD-61s in the past. Mainly, because of their reasonable price and the cheap throw-ins: a pair of earbud headphones. While the earbud headphones resemble something used twenty years ago, the TD-61 headphones...

Good Sound, Comfortable

Not very portable, thin cord

Great headphones for home or on the go


If i could use one word to describe these headphones, it'd be simply..WOW..for 17.99 i was basically just looking for a simple pair of headphones to keep by my stereo to listen to late at nite while i was surfing, but big enough to pack a good amount...

Packs a lotta bass, great price, durable

Tend to slip back on your head while jogging

Consumer review by: wilnix16 (



This product was very affordable and also sound was ok. I have tried many different headphones and this is an ok pair. What do you want for $20. They are pretty big and you look weird with huge headphones on your ears. But other than that there Great....


non-comfort and Huge on ears
