4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good headphones.
They are good. The sound qualiy is excellent. The design is outstanding. But, don't turn them up too loud. They only go to a certain sound level. My speakers on the headphones are blasted. I'm getting new ones though. They are worth the money. Go buy them today.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok but mine broke
I liked the scound Quality and the volume control. The problem i had was that the twist part broke and one of the plastic parts that holds the speaker peice broke. They were in my backpack which gets beat up alot and i had them for about 6 mounths. They are probably the best headphones you can buy for 5 bucks.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best for volume control ...
I bought these headphones on the spur of the moment. I was leaving for vacation and needed some cheap headphones. These headphones certainly were a bargain. Not only is the price great, but they are quite comfortable and the swiveling earphones are great when storing them. The only problem is the volume control. It is very touchy. My suggestion is to just keep it on the mid-setting and use your CD player's volume control.

5-0 out of 5 stars Twist and Shout! These Headphones Lay Flat!
Do you want to store your headphones in a low, flat space (such as a top desk drawer or between files in a briefcase)? I did -- so I purchased these Koss headphones where the earpieces actually twist to allow them to lay flat (on the same plane as the headband) and take up less space (thickness) as compared to other folding headphones.

I use these headphones with my desktop computer -- where I store the headphones in a very narrow top desk drawer.

I also carry another set along with my Audiovox 7" portable DVD player in another small, narrow satchel (which I'll tote around to my son's piano lessons, and to my daughter's dance lessons, on the weekends).

In either case, the Koss KTX-6's twist-flat construction makes for a very low profile that's perfect for my needs.

(The headphones also have a separate volume control which is a very nice feature, and much more convenient that adjusting it on the electrical device itself.)

I have other traditional (bend-in-the-middle-of-the-headband style) headphones, which I'll employ when I have a wider (thicker) space. But when the storage area is relatively flat -- the Koss KTX-6 is definitely the better way to go! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A little expensive but overall very nice headphones.
The only problem I have with the headphones is the cord is to short. There is very little sound escaping out and almost no sound gets in contrary to other reviews. I would absolutley wear these in a library or even while taking an exam. Overall I'm very happy with them.

4-0 out of 5 stars good phones for price, but not quiet
I'd like to say that the 'phones are good. they look pretty cool and are fairly comfortable with the mesh headband. the folding option is nice too for travelling. the only thing I have against it is that they don't keep the sound in at all. contradictory to what the manufacturer's info said, I wouldn't use them in a Library. They keep the sound out though. I ended up returning them because I bought them for use after finals when we sit and do nothing or when I take the subway to classes, but the sound just doesn't stay contained. I blame it on the mesh screen on the back. It's like they were enginered to let everyone else hear the same song you're listening to.

That's just my two cents though.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too much to paid for ordinary headphones
This Headphones are quit good looking,but thats all what they have.No spectacular sound and the cord it's too short
they don't have the extra Bass feature as the manufactures said.
They are overpriced()They should cos't about... dollars for the final costumer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not good as expected
1. Good for listening to pop music
2. Bass is a little overemphasized
3. Isolation is bad, actually.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money
I agree with another reviewer who commented that the treble is muddy-sounding. In fact, other than the over-emphasized bass, the overall sound is fairly muddy. As far as Koss' famous "lifetime warranty" is concerned, I obtained these through that program - when I sent in a pair of studio professional headphones which needed only foam earcushion replacement - and received back these [less expensive] portable-stereo headphones. When I contacted customer service, I was told they had already thrown away the ones I sent and had decided these were a fair substitution - if one ignores small issues like twice as high distortion, shorter cord, less expensive, etc. For their warranty service alone I wouldn't recommend a Koss product; however, their A250 ... is actually well-regarded by some professional reviewers. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The absolute best (sounding) in its price range!
Overall, this is the best overall value, IMO, for a portable headphone. Small and lightweight, the KSC-35s also sound better than any of their competitors, including the S/Portapros. They have OVERALLY bloated bass, the kind that gives me headaches. The KSC-35s would, too, if it wasn't for their very interesting design. Unlike usual headphones which go over your head, or even the neck-band types, the KSC-35s have no headband whatsoever! They hang around your ear - clip is the word most people use, but that sounds painful, and the KSC-35s are the most comfortable headphones i've ever worn. Ever.

To the most important part: Sound. These things ound great. With only 32 ohms of resistance, they will be driven easily from any portable, including MP3/MD players with low output strength. The clip design, as i mentioned above, changes the acoustic properties of the KSC-35s. They are no longer exerting pressure on your ears; they instead simply drape the earlobe. Because of this "loose" grip (when compared to the S/Portapros), they lose some of the boominess in the bass department. They do, however, have a peak in frequency response favoring bass, so bass lovers will truly enjoy these headphones. I prefer the mid-range, and the KSC-35s have a decent midrange presentation, as well a good treble presentation. The excessive bass, while less than the S/Portapros, is still too much to allow the the other frequencies to shine.

All in all, a very active-use friendly design, excellent sound for minimal price, and a superiority over other models in the same price range BY THE SAME COMPANY (KOSS), won me over. These headphones are perfect for an active listener who wants to get great sound out of his portable.

NOTE: I have been constantly comparing the KSC-35s to the Sportapro and Portapro models because all three models have the same drivers. In fact, the S/Portaprose tend to be highly reccommended, while actually their sporty-looking cousin, the KSC-35, sound better! For less! The only draw-back being a slightly unusual design, which I have grown to love!

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing sound, especially for the price
These are a terrific set of headphones. The sound quality is terrific, though the physical design isn't perfect.

I had a pair of Grado SR60s (not super-high-end, but still 5x what I paid for the KSC50s), and I'd say the KSC50s are neck and neck with them. The midrange might be slightly better in the Grados, but the transparency is about the same, and the KSC50s definitely have better low-frequency response. If you want to hear real low bass sounds and hate the cheesy "Super Bass" effects, these are the phones for you. And best of all, the KSC50s are really easy to drive, so you won't have to drain your portable player's battery by cranking up the volume to hear it.

As far as the form factor goes, it's good and bad. I have a pair of Sony earclips (that list for the same as the KSC50s) that are smaller and lighter, and they have a wire-style clip for the ear that's a lot less bulky than the clip on the KSC50s. The Sonys are more convenient and more comfortable -- the only problem is that the the sound is horrible by comparison. So if you're comparing these with earbuds or other earclips for use during snowboarding or something, the form factor may or may not get the job done. On the other hand, compared to full-size Grados or Sennheisers, these are extremely portable and convenient. I've used these for walking and other activities, and I haven't had any trouble with them. As far as comfort goes, I hated them for the first couple of days, then I got used to them and now they don't bother me -- though I wouldn't go so far as to call them really comfortable. They could definitely be improved on this score.

Another note: these aren't sealed headphones. If you fly a lot and want to drown out the noise of an airplane, go get some Etymotics instead. On the other hand, I prefer being able to hear a certain amount of ambient noise in case something comes up that I need to hear, whether walking around or in the office.

Bottom line: these aren't perfect, but they're the best all-around headphones I've ever owned, and the price is so low it's ridiculous.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior Sound -- Great Price
I'm purchasing my 2nd pair of these. Only one other lightweight headphone that I've owned has beaten the sound quality of these. My general advice on buying lightweight headphones with the best sound (learned through experimentation):<br /> <br /> 1. Frequency Response: I believe this is the most important specification. The wider the range, the better the sound. I wouldn't even bother with any headphone that starts above 16hz or ends below 23,000hz, because you'll lose some of the high-end and low-end sounds. For instance, when I played the soundtrack from Star Wars on headphones that didn't meet this criteria, I noticed that I couldn't hear some of the background instruments.<br /> <br /> 2. Gold Plated Plug: The sound from non-gold plated headphones doesn't seem as good.<br /> <br /> I'd encourage you to read the other reviews here, too. These headphones fit very comfortably for me, but I guess that's not the case with everyone. Also, I wouldn't know how well these headphones handle heavy wear & tear, because I don't use them in such situations.

5-0 out of 5 stars lightweight, comfortable, and affordable
i just got these today, and i was surprised by the lightness of the headphones. i put them on, and started playing from my mp3 player, and i was very impressed. the bass was great, and the sound was rich, not flat. please note, though, that the headphones are shown actual size in the small thumbnail, not the enlarged picture. overall, i would suggest these headphones to others.

Amazon.com Review

Let's face it: listening to music on an airplane is almost impossible. Even if you crank the music up louder than the engines, chances are you'll still miss most of the music and subject yourself to shrill, high frequencies that induce fatigue. The Koss Quiet Zone QZ/2000 headphones, or stereophones, as Koss calls them, are tailor-made for use in planes or other environments plagued by loud or intrusive background noise.

Using a sophisticated system of noise cancellation, the QZ/2000 headset significantly reduces the perceived noise level of static low-frequency sounds. In doing so, the headphones also cancel a portion of the music at those frequencies, but the net effect is unquestionably improved clarity in your music. The QZ/2000 works well for general noise dimming, even if you don't intend to listen to anything. Just put them on, switch the noise cancellation on, and enjoy your quieter environment.

Sometimes the absence of one noise reveals another, previously unnoticed noise (usually a high-frequency tone), which can be distracting. But by and large, we found the QZ/2000 effective at reducing noise from air conditioners, freeway traffic, and even general office din. Most pleasing is the Quiet Zone effect on listening to music at low levels: with less environmental noise, music can be heard more cleanly and more fully at lower volumes, so it sounds better and is also safer.

As headphones, the Quiet Zone 2000s are decent, though not great--clearly, you're paying for the noise reduction here. The 'phones are mellow and full-bodied, if slightly muddy, with little in the way of high-frequency detail. This last factor also keeps any sense of harshness out of the program--not such a bad thing, given the strident nature of many headphones.

While the QZ/2000 claims to reduce high-frequency noise as well as low, we detected very little noise reduction in the bass range. But for general noise reduction and relaxing in-flight listening, the Quiet Zone QZ/2000 is just the ticket.

Pros:

  • Cancels noise well
  • Enhances clarity
  • Lightweight
  • Works with or without music playing

Cons:

  • Mediocre sound quality
  • Slightly awkward fit

2-0 out of 5 stars what a TERRIBLE buy!
I purchased the Koss QZ-5 Headphones.
THESE ARE NOT ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES!!!
I was duped. I believed these were active noise cancelling headphones, but they reduce noise by adding a ton of padding. These headphones are HUGE. The picture displayed is very decieving, only showing you the profile of the headphones. If you wear it and look in a mirror, you will look like a geeky mickey mouse. They stick out of the sides of your head making you look like a weirdo.

In addition to that, the sound quality is extremely poor. At the moment I am listening to the Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack, and any bass makes the headphones crackle. Bass performance is absolutely poor. Do not get these headphones, they are a waste of money. Do not get these headphones!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love these headphones!
These totally isolate outside noise passively. Period. I'm not sure what the noise reduction rating is, but it's probably around 20 dB. So, they might be a bit heavy and big, but they are still fairly comfortable. The velcro strap is much more comfortable than a big headband too. You may look like an pilot with big headphones, but you won't hear anybody telling you that when the 'phones are on.

There is a volume control right on the left cup. You'll enjoy the sound quality, it is very clear and you'll be able to hear every note. Bass response isn't perfect, but good enough for the casual listener. You can find a mono/stereo control switch, very handy. These headphones are not just for race scanners, they can be used with anything with a standard headphone jack thanks to the mono/stereo switch. Coiled cord is nice too and has decent length. You really won't want to listen through another pair of headphones once you have tried these.

...Just get them - you will love them!

5-0 out of 5 stars A quality product with a very good price
I bought these headphones because I like to be isolated from the environment while I am studying. Without any music playing the Passive Noise Reduction of the headphones blocks most noises, you can still hear some loud noises (ex. from the construction side next to my building) but become very soft. When I use them with music nothing disturbs me, and I do not have to have the music too high. In addition, I am very satisfied with the quality of the headphones construction. However, the only drawback I found to these headphones is their weight, which is 15oz. Also, I found the sound of better quality and louder than the $20 Philips Headphones I used to use.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Disapointed
They do a good job of filtering outside noise, but these headphones are not for use if you are searching for serious volume. Quality is not bad, but I really expected a richer experience. Keep in mind I mostly listen to classical motion picture soundtracks, so if you listen to Rock/Rap, you may be happier than I was.
Clunky headband is not great for anything but home use also.
These are not real expensive headphones, and I suppose I was taken in a little by the brand name, and had higher expectations than I should have. Had I listened to them in a store, I would have kept searching.

4-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME BUY!!!
I bought the Koss QZ-99 Noise Reduction Headphones. All I can say, is that they are rad! They work just as well as normal earmuffs, maybe just a little worse, but the noise reduction is SUPER!!! (F.Y.I - there are no headphones/earmuffs/ANYTHING out there on the market that blocks out EVERYTHING.) These are the best noise reduction headphones I've ever used. The sound quality is nice and they are comfortable to wear.

The reason I knocked it down to a 4 star is because they are fairly large (I don't know actually how durable they are, didn't want to test) and I'm an eight grade student. So with all the jumbling around and crazy kids on the bus and a school that like to hit backpacks and/or steal your headphones while your listening to a good tune...well what I'm trying to say is, they don't really fit in a SAFE place in my backpack (I can put them in, but they might get squashed --- my backpack's crowded)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stereophones, very comfortable, in-line volume control
I had originally bought a pair of Sony MDR 150's, but found they were quite uncomfortable. However, these Koss UR29 are VERY comfortable. The earcups are well padded and fit over your whole ear. The headband is also thickly padded. Another advantage is that the cord enters the left earcup only -- the right wire goes through headband. This results is much reduced chance of tangled wires. There is a built-in volume adjuster, which lies about 12'' from the left ear cup. Handy feature if you're on a computer. One thing that I did not see with this headphone was an adapter to fit into the thicker headphone jacks, like those commonly found on receivers.
As for sound, I'm quite pleased. The lows, mids, and highs come out crisp and cleanly, and the bass can be really felt when its demanded.
The only downside in my opinion is its somewhat bulky nature, but I can understand why -- the comfort level is fantastic.

Highly recommended. .... at CircuitCity.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow!!!
Although Koss is known for making excellent headphones I was hesitant to buy these ones because the price was so low. These headphones definitely defy the "You get what you pay for law". They are comfortable and they sound great! I have very high standards when it comes to things... especially the way my music sounds and I am very satisfied with these headphones. I can listen to my music or watch movies for about six hours, but after that amount of time they become just slightly uncomfortable. I listen to all kinds of music and watch all kinds of movies too and these headphones can handle all of it very well. When you play extremely deep bass it sounds just a little bit distorted though (which is really the only bad thing I noticed about them), but come on... even those these headphones are a great deal you're not going to get the same kind of bass you would get from a high quality 1000 Watt Sub. Of course sound output quality depends on the format (and the quality of the format) you are listening to and the quality of your sound card (if you are using a computer) or whatever audio hardware you are plugging these into, so keep that in mind too. Don't let the price of these headphones discourage you from buying because this is a hell of a deal... almost seems too good to be true.

3-0 out of 5 stars The New Koss
The UR-29 is of the new Koss product mission. This mission appears to be in no way related to the TD nor -Pro (portable headphone series) mission.

I personally have not had an extremely pleasant experience with these headphones. I have been listening to Koss headphones since the TD-60s and am convinced that the UR series of headphones employ a totally different driver engineering. The "Koss sound" is not prevalent in these drivers. Furthermore, the touted 101db/mw rating is misleading in the fact that the nominal impedance of these headphones are 100ohms. Surely, 100ohms puts to rest any idea of listening to these headphones in a portable fashion, for the 5mw continuous output rating of a good amount of portable players is for a 16ohm impedance.

Taking this idea and applying it to these headphones, you won't even induce 1mw from your player's amplifier. Why? Well...
16ohm=5mw
32ohm=2.5mw
64ohm=1.25mw
128ohm=0.625mw
And if everything is linear, just for the sake of argument, you'll scratch 1mw with the volume turned to maximum...which includes distortion and clipping. Thus, these headphones are more suited for computers and other items that plug in with stronger amplifiers.

As everything comes down to sound quality, it is far from worth it. Again, the Koss sound is totally absent from these headphones... Voices sound hollow, treble sounds scattered, and bass sounds tuned. It's an overall bad experience.

Shame on Koss for releasing these headphones.
I am presently waiting for my TD-80s to ship to me so that I can right this wrong that I have committed.

Peace.
Gen.

PS. The Three Stars are all based on their being Koss headphones, and the fact that I could've purchased a defective pair.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet!
Awesome pair of headphones! You will not find a better pair even among those in the next "higher" price range! They're that good!
I use them for at home Music and Computer gaming.
I have to say, if anyone out there is looking for a pair of headphones to enhance your computer gaming expeiriance, these are your phones! And my music CD's sound great too!
There is only one thing I would change on these headphones. The tightness of the band. It's flexible and I can wear them for hours. But I would much prefer them to be looser. They fit a bit too snug. But I can put up with it, there just isnt another pair of headphones out there that can match their sound quality and price.

3-0 out of 5 stars I have a big head
... and these headphones aren't so great for big heads. I am a loyal Koss customer, but I can't say I'm super impressed with these UR-29s.

Don't get me wrong: these sound better than anything else you can get for this amount of money! But these UR-29s don't sound quite as good as my 3 year old UR-20s (which don't fold, don't look as good, and aren't as compact... maybe that is why the sound changed so much).

As other reviewers have noted, these headphones fit children well. However, if you have a large head or ears, or just don't like things to fit tightly on your head, these might be a bit too small. I think these heaphones are smaller than most other Koss stereophones due to the unique folding design, which is useful as well.

The construction is definitely a step above the competition. I've rolled over the cable already a few times with my office chair and it isn't even indented. The collapsing feature is nice and seems like it will last for a long long time. There is simply nothing wimpy about these headphones. The silver earcups are actually metal, not painted plastic! Wow!

If you're in the market for something this price, go with these. If you're looking to replace some older Koss stereophones you have, consider getting a different model and coughing up just a little more dough. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Definitely a good buy!
I really love these headphones. They have volume control on each ear cup which is great when you have one ear that hears better than the other, like I do. I also love that the headband itself is made of metal not plastic, so you can stretch them out to fit your head without worrying about breaking them. The ear cups are adjustible too, so I can turn them slightly to fit my ears. I have also noticed that my ears don't sweat as much as with some of my other headphones. The cord is coiled so I don't have a long cord constantly hanging behind me and dragging on the floor. The sound is also pretty good, I've heard better but these are nice for all the features and the price. The only thing I don't like is the fact that the inner part of the ear cup has nothing covering it. You have a nice cushiony padding around the rim and on the inside, nothing, just hard plastic. It almost looks like it's not finished. Besides this problem, I would definitely recommend these headphones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound... At a Price
The Koss TD/80 headphones reproduce wonderful sounds, and even at high volumes cannot be heard by other people in the same room when they're snug on your head. The cord is sufficiently long, and they adjust well to the size of your head.

The only problem with them is that they fit so snug on your head that until you're used to them, they will make your ears quite sore. And even then you'll find yourself experimenting with different ways to wear them so as to reduce the tightness against your ears.

All in all, a good product, but be prepared for a bit of a headache for starters.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Beautiful TD-80s
I've been in love with the Koss TD-80s since the early to mid nineties as an adolescent entering the likes of Nirvana and Bush. At that time, I only had enough money to purchase the TD60s, which were a fine introduction to the Koss line that I grew to love.

Today, sadly, I can't commend Koss for their product changes--the introduction of the UR series, which I ridicule, "U-R stupid for buying them", and their incessant failure at making good earbuds beyond the delicate "Plug"...

However, I still hold true to their classic products, and this model is one of them. During those adolescent years, my only ability to listen to these headphones were by way of visiting downtown music stores whom displayed their latest releases at listening stations complemented by the Koss TD-80s. If there was something to be heard, the Koss TD-80s gave it. Whenever I wanted to buy a CD, if it were not on the TD-80s, I would think before buying it in fear of poor production, for if it were poor production, the '80s would let you know...

I recommend these headphones as a household reference for anyone moderately serious about their music. Yes, Sennheiser may be for the purist, and Sony may be for the everyday-er whom works out and advances in their professions or schoolings, but the classic Koss is simply for anyone who wants to hear and feel their music. In addition, given the age of this model, the bargains of today on this headphone is ridiculous and should make anyone in the market for closed headphones consider them.

5-0 out of 5 stars 60 Ohm Impedence - Lot of headroom reduces distortion
Closed-earpiece headphones no matter the brand are not comfy for extended wear! The reason for purchasing these headphones is the 60 Ohm impedance. The higher the impedance rating allows you to listen to your home stereo, boombox, mp3 player, etc. at higher volumes without any distortion so you get great clarity and definiton from the bass, mids and highs. Also, you can plug this set of headphones into a stage monitoring system or instrument amplifier with the same great results. The Koss line of headphones are an exceptional value. Notice the cost of other manufactures' headphones that are rated at 60 ohms and above and you will see what I mean. No! I do not work for Koss, just an informed shopper!

2-0 out of 5 stars Dont get them! Spend the Extra money!
I was debating between these and some facier pairs on ebay and boy did I regret it. These are heavy, bulky, and not comfortable on my ears. They sound pretty good, the base is great, but not worth giving up comfort. My neck even hurts wearing these because the headphone are so heavy. Its like putting a textbook on top of your heard for a couple of hours. Its also such a relief when i take them off for my ears. My ears were red. They should make them out of more plastic rather than metal. Next time I will spend the extra [money] to get a better pair. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars These headphones rival $50 models
These are the best pair of headphones I have ever owned! I paid only about $... and the clarity, bass, and definition of sound is absolutely amazing for the price. They look decent, although the silver paint job is flaky, and the headphone cord only comes on one side. The wrap-around back is quite comfortable, even with my glasses (small rims). Replace the headphones that came with your Discman and you'll wonder how you ever survived without these!

I am purchasing another pair because I tugged too hard on the cord, which has started to come out, but after 7 months of daily heavy abuse, it's definitely worth the money. Much better than the $... Sony models I've used in the past.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great
I have owned my headphones for 2 weeks. I have found the sound quality excellent and the bass adequate (which, for me, is perfectly fine). When I saw the pictures for the phones, I thought the phones were held on one's head by the loop things resting on the ears. This is not the case. Instead, the wearer's head is gripped by the plastic. This can become uncomfortable after a while, especially for someone with a large head. However, this isn't a huge concern of mine. As long as the phones are removed periodically during listening periods, the discomfort is very minor. On the other hand, for anyone with glasses I would not recommend these. I wear contacts but tried them with my glasses a few times, and had to remove them in minutes.
Overall, I was quite satisfied with my pair, until the right earphone began making a muffled buzzing noise with every sound produced. ... It comes with a lifetime warrenty, but if they break every 2 weeks, what good is that? I don't listen to overly loud music, so that couldn't have been the cause of the problem. I sincerely hope that this problem was one time occurence.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype ... these things suck
Just got them in the mail...opened them, put them on and they were a little tight around my head...pulled on them to stretch the plastic a little (like most wrap-arounds do), and the things broke in half! Can't comment on sound quality, since I never had the chance to hear them...

1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it at any price
These headphones started falling apart from the minute I took them out of the box. The ear pieces are extremely delicate and not able to handle touch without the foam unattaching itself from the headphone. A real pain.

2-0 out of 5 stars a vice clamp for your head
how do these headphones stay on? the plastic ridge clamps your head immediately behind your ears. mine were extremely uncomfortable to wear. i kept hoping that they would stretch out eventually.

tonight i was probably a little frustrated at the discomfort i experienced from these headphones. i took them off and pulled the phones apart slowly, hoping to weaken the clamping effect. it was like doing a pec exercise on a Soloflex machine. anyway, my headphones broke in half because i must have inadvertently applied too much force.

the sound quality is great - very clear and clean. however i had these phones for only *5 days* before my skull pains drove me to break them accidentally.

my advice: only buy these head phones if you have a small cranium. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With a sleek, compact profile, the Koss KS3411 is a worthy addition to a small office, bedroom, or anywhere else you need decent sound wrapped in an attractive package. A system this size and at this price makes compromises in terms of sound quality and features, but even so, we were impressed by the KS3411's overall value.

The KS3411 couldn't be easier to setup. Plug it into the wall, attach the speaker cables to the color-coded ports, and that's it. There's also a supplied AM antenna for listening to your favorite talk station. It would be nice if Koss would include a manual with the KS3411; we were left to figure out the unit's functions on our own. Thankfully, the unit is fairly easy to use without any guidance.

The KS3411 wins big points for spiffiness. The muted silver casing is understated and classy, while brilliant blue backlighting in the display and around the volume knob is subtle yet striking. With a depth of 8 inches, the unit will easily fit into a bookshelf or atop a dresser.

Controls are laid out for simple, intuitive use. A row of buttons on the top edge of the unit control tuning and CD functions, while controls on the front face allow easy switching between CD and radio modes, as well as radio preset navigation. Koss mostly hits the mark when it comes to user-friendliness with this system, but try as we might, we could not figure out how to set any radio presets--our only design grumble.

With 10 watts of total power, the KS3411 isn't going to wake the neighbors, but it delivers sound that, though a bit tinny to our ears, was still respectable. The CD player quickly queued up tracks and pleased us with its ability to play burned CD-R and CD-RW discs. The radio's digital tuner was very handy, as it allowed for precise tuning and quick seek functions--no hunting for just-right frequency.

While we hoped to tweak the sound quality of various CDs, the automatic equalization and bass boost functions are somewhat lacking. We didn't hear a discernible difference between, say, the classical setting and the jazz setting. We did like using the supplied remote, however, as it offered a few features not available on the main unit, such as a CD intro scan feature and a mute button. We also liked the fact the timer and alarm functions are programmable from the remote. The KS3411 is a good alarm clock for folks who like to wake up to CDs. --Josh Gunn

5-0 out of 5 stars Good if you press'em
I bought these at wallmart.. was trying to find some phones that would sound very good but wouldnt allow other sounds in and would not break after a few months of use .. my fav before these were sony earbuds. they had damn good base and good overall sound but would get the cloth covers dammaged and then got ear wax clogged after a while and the wires would break .. so i got these .. i hated them at first due to the fact that bass sounded like A$$ .. but after pressing them to my ears with my fingers .. WOW they sounded fantastic and could handle some impressive volume .. so i got me some head bands from the doller store to wear over the speaker sections of these to have them held to my ears while listening.. they sound great that way.. they are cheap and sound great once you press em

Cheers

2-0 out of 5 stars A decent headset for the non-loud user.
Let me point out one thing before you read my review. When you read a review you have to know what type of person the reviewer is in relation to what type of person you are. Im a gamer, so I need to hear every little detail to know where the enemy is at or what he is doing. I also need a headset that blocks out outside interference so I have 100% concentration on what im doing (and believe me, it really helps your game).

First let me start off by saying that the headband doesnt press up against your ears. This is bad because when its not pressing up against your ears your allowing for more outside interference get into your headsets and into your ears breaking your concentration. When you have less outside interference you find that its easier to concentrate on what your doing. Also the volume level is decreased along with detailed sound. But it is very comfterable to wear, not heavy at all, and the head-size adjusters work awsome.

On this headset you really cant turn the volume up that loud without it distorting (the bass especially distorts badly although the treble rarely distorts if at all). But when you dont turn the volume up that loud it delivers pretty decent sound quality.

The wire is really thin making it easier to break/cut into. Due to the wire being thin, when you fondle/mess with the wire it distorts. Also sometimes when you move your body it distorts.

I had this headset for exactly a month and in about half way through that month my left speaker wasnt as loud as my right. It happened when I was listening to music. So I had to comprimise by using software to re-balance the amount of volume that went into each speaker. When I did this my overall sound wasnt as loud as it was before. That made me pretty mad.

If you really want to get your moneys worth, go buy a 30 dollar pair Koss ur-29. But at amazon you can get them alot cheaper. Read my Other review on that headset on amazon, just type in the search engine "Koss ur-29".

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice headphones
Yeah, I just picked up a pair of these headphones and I must say they are quite good. The bass is very clean unlike most headphones in the same price range. The real sell point for me was the 8' cord. Great for people like me that love to watch movies and play games late at night but don't want to wake up the roomates.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Sound for your buck
I bought these headphones and was pleasantly surprised. They are very comfortable and the sound quality was better than you would think given the price. The cord is a little long for portables, but can easily be tied up. The extra earbuds that come with it, are a nice bonus, but their sound quality pales by comparison. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Convenient, but...
It's definately a nice item to have... at first. I got mine so that I could use it with my computer, and be able to change the sound level without going through menus and unplug the headphones easily without having to crawl behing the computer, so that I could use them with my stereo. It worked great for about 3 months, however, it's wearing out - the headphone port has broken loose in the casing, and I have to fidget with it for a minute to get the plug all the way in (otherwise, sound only comes out one side). Due to the way it's constructed, the dial for the volume will keep it from getting any worse, so I'll still be able to use it, but it sure is annoying when I'm trying to move between things.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice, very useful
I use this on my computer. Yeah, there's software volume controls - but they require dropping out of whatever you're doing to set, and differ from program to program. It's far more convenient to be able to reach over and make a little adjustment without effecting what you're working on. Also, the sound quality isn't effected - I used to plug my headphones into a set of speakers to do the same thing, but it resulted in static and noise that degraded the music; this volume control retains the clarity of the music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very functional
This is a surprisingly useful gadget, as it serves as an extension cord and volume control. The extension cord aspect adds about 3 feet to your headphone, which gives me a lot more room to move when I am listening to music on my computer. The volume control is handy when using a portable player because you can change the volume without jostling the player.

2-0 out of 5 stars Hiss is more than slight
Granted the product is very cheap, but I decided to try it out. It is pretty noisy, about like a old cassette tape with no dolby. If you listen to rock and pop, you probably won't notice it that much. The 3 eq bands do what they should and help warm up the the smaller ear buds and phones.

4-0 out of 5 stars Use This to Improve Sound of Poor Recordings or Broadcasts
I disagree with two of the people who have nothing good to say about this equalizer, and understand that they may be expecting it to match the performance of extremely high quality audio equipment -- which won't need it anyway.

This equalizer is extremely useful if you are trying to listen to -- say -- tapes of old time radio, shortwave broadcasts, or noisy AM signals. You can reduce harshness, improve bass response, and reduce noise effects.

However, it does have some limitations, related to its low price. At $20 retail price, such a helpful and flexible gadget will not have perfect audio performance, and it doesn't. There is a SLIGHT hiss audible at all times, apparently intrinsic in the audio chip used for the headphone amp. The hiss is introduced after the volume control; it's there all the time. Depending on the input voltage of the device to which it's connected, the hiss can be as loud as -30 dB, or as soft as -50 dB or lower; and it is predominantly a very bright hissing. So extremely efficient, bright headphones may exaggerate it. I hope Koss improves this device in a future model; but for low fidelity source material, and with phones that are not extremely bright, the hiss introduced by this device is MUCH, much lower than the hiss intrinsic in a tape, radio broadcast, or old recording and will quickly be ignored. If, however, you are hooking this to a CD player to listen with excellent phones to wideband digital recordings, you'll notice the hiss -- and be annoyed, depending on your sensibilities.

I am glad I purchased one. My intended use was to listen to cassettes of old time radio shows. Many of the commercial tapes are not well corrected and sound extremely harsh and thin; this equalizer fixes that quite nicely. The bands are well chosen to have an aural effect where poor recordings have flaws.

For background: I am a retired audio engineer with three decades in broadcasting and recording, and an enthusiast of OTR and recordings of old classic performances of music from the fifties back to the twenties, many of which NEED help that this equalizer can provide.

1-0 out of 5 stars Agreed: horrible product DO NOT BUY!!
Unfortunately, I disregarded the pervious reviewer and purchased this product anyway. It is very noisy (heavy hissing)--totally unacceptable. I'm highly disappointed in Koss.

1-0 out of 5 stars horrible product DO NOT BUY!!
This e-band stereo equalizer is horrible. There is a heavy hissing sound whenever you try to listen to music through it. For example, you can use it to enhance the bass on an mp3 player, but all you get is a loud hissing which totally ruines its purpose. Don't waste your money! It's just not worth it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for its price.
Overall it is pretty good for what it costs and what it does. Granted, it isn't audiophile quality, but it does make a good "beater" headphone amplifier/equalizer. It adds enough power to push some higher resistance headphones to decent levels, although it probably wouldn't be very satisfying with any headphone that costs over 50$. That being said, I give it a 4 because it does a good job for its cost, and makes a good headphone amp/eq for general purpose and active use. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with Infrared Technology
    This is the 1st set of cordless speakers I've tried. I was warned about about IR vs radio frequency technology. I should have listened to the advice. RF is much better than IR.
    I would not recommend these headphones

    2-0 out of 5 stars Below my expectations
    When I bought the headphone, it seemed the best option: light, cheap, good brand.
    But using it was kind of disapointing. Even at 3,4 feet away you hear a background squeaking.
    When I had to get new batteries (after 2 months of far-less-than-intense use) I broke the little piece of plastic that holds the battery cover.
    I am still using (I got used to the squeaking), but as soon as I have a chance I will look for something better.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Short Range and lots of noise...
    I have never tried other wireless headphones, so I did not know what to expect. These headphones will only work in the room where the base is...that is not too much of a problem because I use them to watch movies when others in the house need quiet, but the amount of hiss and noise is quite distracting. No matter how I fiddled with the volume of the unit and the volume of the surround sound system I could still hear it.
    One other thing that may be purely personal: I usually am reclining on the sofa when I watch the movies, with my head propped on pillows--these headphones have a "behind the head" design that is much less comfortable when you are laying back.
    The only really good thing for me was the price, but I would be willing to pay more to solve these problems.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the price...amazing
    This was an impulse buy because they were being liquidated at a local store and so I got them for half the Amazon price. But after hearing them I have to say that the sound is amazing even if they were full retail. I also own the Bose noise canceling headset which sells for $300 and they are incredible at disposing background noise; much more so than these QZ50's. That being said, I really think the actual sound reproduction is similar, which is unbelievable since the Bose cost almost 10 times as much. I don't use the Bose headset unless I am sitting in one place since it has a very inconvenient two square inch box on the cord that holds the battery and the on/off switch which would just hang like an anchor if you were walking or moving around. The over-the-ear design of the Koss seemed like they would be uncomfortable, but after wearing them for an hour or more at a time, I almost forget that they are there. The sound reproduction is clear, smooth and consistent. I think they are incredible for the price and would highly recommend them.

    2-0 out of 5 stars UNCOMFORTABLE
    I am a research and development engineer for CTI / (computer and telephone) call center technologies.

    I purchased the stereophones because of their low price and usefulness of noise cancel technology for use with cross-talk on an operations floor in an office environment.

    The noise cancel seems to work well for the price. The bass response is absolutely the best I've heard for a pair of headphones under $100. Clarity is excellent.

    If you can get over the EXTREME discomfort. The plastic bracket around the back provides pressure against my outer ear cartilage. Of the test subjects from the pool of 100 employees, have confirmed this issue.

    Most of what I found is that the bass response is so impressive; it's worth putting up with the irritation. However, after long periods of time this pain can irritate.

    The stereophones themselves are excellent, but the bracket that holds them to your head is very poor design. Also, does not make a complete airtight seal around your ear, which can also provide some outside noise interference.

    I called KOSS and spoke with JESSICA from marketing 5-14-2004, 12:00 EST. Her response is that this design was not a mistake. She had no excuse and assured me this is the way it is. I could not get very many words from her in regards to answers. I was told these are a "STREET LEVEL" series product - and that the way it is. She did explain a new product from koss is currently in production to be released to the open market within the month.

    I would like to see the same set of stereophones released with a different bracket that is away from my ears.

    There is a weird sensation of what I can only explain as being underwater, or being inside of a custom-fitted car with super-loud bass amplified subwoofers w/ the windows up. The pressure of the sound created from the bass of the stereophones in my ears causes some type of unusual feeling inside the cavity of my ears. You may need to be aware of this sensation, especially if you intend your children to use the KOSS QZ50 STEREOPHONES.

    I will be conducting a series of tests with a professional otologist, in an attempt to resolve my concern for health issues in the internal ear. I would not want to have someone close to me suffer from painful side-effects from long-term use of a product which has engineering issues.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable and not much in the way of Noise Cancellation
    I was very disappointed with the Koss QZ50. They do not fit on the head very well, and the noise cancellation is very slight. The sound quality is good, but not exceptional. I would suggest looking for another option.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest for airline travel
    I recently took a trip and wanted to see how much of the airplane's engine noise these headphones would cancel. I was fairly disappointed as the difference was noticable, but not very significant. While these are very light which was nice, I would have rather have had the extra weight and had these be over-the-ear headphones which would probably have helped block out some of the engine noise and made the noise-cancelling seem more effective. I ended up using the over-the-ear headphones I had brought along just in case.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I must say.... I'm Impressed with Koss!
    I researched ANR headphones and found this pair of headphones, the Koss QZ50. I bought the QZ50 because of the wraparound the head style. (my favorite, not to mention cool looking) I was skeptical of its ANR abilities because it's low low price compared to some other Bose ANR headphones ($250++) and I am _impressed_ with the sound quality and the ANR abilities. I could not hear jets flying over the Potomac River to land at National Airport from my house when I turned the ANR on. (no music playing) A GOOD BUY!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's a Y Cable. Shrug.
    Really, what's to scrutinize? A Y cable is a Y cable. I use mine to connect both speakers and headphones to my computer. It works perfectly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Two Is Cool
    This procduct is great for when you want to share the same

    music on your cd player or walkman. I have no complaints

    i suggest anyone to buy it, it's worth the money..........

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this thing.
    I recently bought a new computer and to my dismay the new speakers and subwoofer did not come with a headphone jack. As a result I found myself having to crawl under my desk in order to switch to my headphones. When I came across Koss Y-88 Y Cord splitter I thought... I would give them a try. I am glad to say that they work great. They connect directly to my sound card and the speakers and sub are connected to one of the connector and the headphones to the other. When I want to listen to music or a DVD and not disturb anyone else I just turn off the speakers and put on the headphones. No more crawling to switch them over. It also works great with a stereo or directly connected to your DVD player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars perfect
    this is perfect for what you need... 2 headphones for one jack. I use it for my portable dvd player which only has one output earphone jack. now my girlfriend and I can watch the same movie on the train with our own privacy by allowing us to attach separate headphones.

    also, I have speakers which only have one sound inputs. this way, I have used this KOSS y-cord to attach a outside cd player and my computer to my speakers. this is a terrific product!

    the y-cord prevents wires from getting tangled onto each other. the length is just what I want.

    highly recommended, you won't be disappointed. you will need this sooner or later!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Normal 'Y' cable
    this product is the same as any other Y adapter. It's not a bad product... it's just, normal. I have another pair of these that i got from radio shack. I take these when me and my friend want to listen to the same music and we only have one Discman and 2 headphones... If your a person like me, then i suggest this product. ... Read more
