Despite impressive looks, these Koss's are poor performers

  • Generous bass


  • Hard, thin sound
  • uncomfortable to wear
  • cumbersome

Compared to close rivals, these cans from Koss feel heavy and cumbersome.

The rubber ear pads aren't very comfortable: ironic, because these headphones are comfortably the poorest performers we've seen for a while.

Listen to Eminem's Same Song and Dance and it sounds like it was recorded from the confines of a size five shoebox: there's a hard edge that renders long-term listening impossible.

The only saving grace is that bass is generous, but still, they're way behind their rivals
