Very Good Budget Over The Ear Neutral Sounding HeadphonesVery comfortable. I have a large head and the headband and ear pads fit me just fineThey're not made of the most strong ABS plastic, but as long as you handle these headphones responsibly, they shouldn't break on you anytime soon.They deliver a very neutral sound. The sound stage is decent but not the best. You'll notice the imaging but it's nothing to write home about. The sound itself, is quite clear. Highs, mids and lows are clearly defined. I'd think that these headphones would actually be decent as a budget sound mixing monitor.The quality of the plastic coating of the audio cable is questionable. The cable feels quite cheap and flimsy and it isn't detachable. Don't abuse it. Handle with care.The only real reason why I won't give these headphones a 5/5 is due to the questionable quality of material in some areas. Other than that, these headphones are very good for the money.Once again, Koss delivers quite a bang for the buck. Highly recommended.4Koss UR40 Top NotchVery good over-ear headphones. I had a pair of these for 10 years before they bit the dust. Got a new pair and got the happiness back.5Decent product overall. Won't break the bank and provides satisfactory audio quality. Not as clear audio as top notch expensive headphones, but this isn't meant to. If you're looking for open headphones and are on a budget, give these a try. Only thing I really dislike about these headphones is that after a while the black covering over the cushions starts to flake EVERYWHERE. If you start finding random black specks everywhere, check to see if the covering is flaking off.Decent product overall. 3Too fragile I am a 64 year old who bought this headset to listen to shortwave radio. The sound quality was OK for that purpose. The headset was light and comfortable. The wire only lasted about 3 hours of seated use. Apparently , as others have noticed, there is an inherent weakness in the wire at the spot where the two wires coming down from either ear meet. If I wiggle the joint I can occasionally get sound to work in both ears but that is hit or miss. 2The Koss UR40s are the best sounding headset for any amount of money.These headphones are not made to cancel out the noise. They are made for you to be able to listen to your music and still hear what's around you. As far as the sound quality goes, I am very picky about how my music sounds because I listen to everything from rock and roll, live concerts, Carnegie Hall as well as classical and standards. I like my music to sound Chrisman clean and this allows me to do that. It has great highs 15-22,000 HZ meaning great bass and treble balanced out by a groovy midrange. The speakers themselves are made out of titanium so the will not stretch out like most speakers will. The cord is a bit of a problem because it is not insulated and in cold weather it will get hard and break. Koss offers a limited lifetime guarantee. If they go bad send them back in and Koss will either fix or replace at no charge to you. I have had 2 different pair of Koss headphones and I love to use these on trips with my 15 inch portable DVD player. It sounds like I am in the movie.5good, but quirky, headphonesThese headphones sound good for the money. They are slightly tilted towards bass and warmth but with a little EQ they produce a sound rivalling much more expensive headphones. There is some sound isolation at higher frequencies, but you can have normal conversations easily with these. Soundstage is there, and is better than closed-back headphones I have used, but it's really nothing special- I haven't trierd enough open headphones to really comment. Image seems to be decent, but nothing spectacular. These headphones aren't a substitute for a good 3D headphone engine, such as Dolby Headphone, for sure, but with something like that, they work well.Unfortunately, they are only average comfort. The earpads foam isn't very substantial, and probably should have been a velour-like material instead of pleather. Also, these headphones are more of a monitor style in their character, however they come with a short, right-angle cord. A straight five or six foot cord would be better, since it would make it less ackward to plug into an extension cable.4Bought in 2005! TRULY 5 star...and after 13 years of heavy use, I was curious... here's my old headphones!I went looking, because I like them so much all this time!A couple things.The mesh head thing- it only stayed on a couple years. They headphones worked better without it anyhow I think. Smoother on my hair. Which has a fine texture, and is a bit frizzy- lots of fine short pieces. Sometimes the foldable joints catch in them. This happens on earrings, necklaces, other headphones and other things as well. No more on this product really. Function of having fine curly hair.Sound has always been fantastic. I love the sound and am sad when I send a ton of cash on headphones that don't come close.They are not a snug fit, but, are soft enough and comfy enough to wear to bed. Because of the tender fabric, it's started to deteriorate on the smooth fake leathery bits. So so soft all this time though. Really to last 13 years, NO COMPLAINTS!!!.Not snug enough to work out in. Snug enough to casually hike or walk in. They won't just fall right off or anything.Lightweight. Easy to make a pouch or toss them into a ziplock freezer quart bag to travel and keep them in your pack or bag more tidily.I would agree with most reviews. I tend to consider the cables 'supple' instead of 'flimsy'-- and this is an important difference! Supple cables don't just out at awkward angles and get caught on as much stuff. You can keep your music device in your pocket and the cable stays nicely under your coat or shirt and bends where you need it to stay and likes being there rather than tugging intself back in to the shape it wants to be in like a stiffer cable.These are one of the few products I would give 10 stars to if I could.And I still would after 13 years!!!!!!Oh,Actually they still work fine too. Really. I just noticed they are really a little fiddly nowadays because I used them so much, and was wondering if they still made them.It's a bit disturbing that amazon remembered I bought them so long ago, though. I'm starting to hope Amazon never holds a grudge against me, cause they never forget!!5The Koss UR40: How to Make a $30 Set of Headphones Sound Like $10 Disposable OnesI acquired these headphones recently for listening to music from a variety of sources (dedicated MP3 player, smartphone, PC and component stereo receiver). I'll keep this review simple:Pros:1. Lightweight and comfortable to wear.2. Collapsible for storage. The earcups pivot upward into the arc of the headband.Cons:1. Ridiculously short cord (only 36" from the "Y" junction to the 3.5mm plug).2. Mediocre sound quality. The Indistinct, insufficient and poorly defined bass sounds "blatty", the midrange sounds strangely muffled, and the treble was harsh and lacking in sparkle.I thought the headphones were defective, so I returned it to Amazon for a replacement. The second unit sounded just as bad.2Best unamped headphones. The 60ohm Koss legend.I use these with a Zalman Zm-Mic1 and get used for music and gaming. Been using the UR40s almost daily since 2011 at the computer and always searching for the best unamped headphones on the market. These are it. I've tried a lot of headphones over the past 15 years, mostly lower-midrange sets. Sennheiser HD497, Sony MDR-V6, Koss Plug, Sennheiser MX400, Sennheiser HD555. Probably some more I'm forgetting, for example I had the Philips X2/27 Fidelio at a point.Headphones are very personal, but I prefer any Koss 60ohm set to all of those.Koss 60ohm sets are the Koss Portapro, Sportapro, KSC35, KSC75 and this set of course. I prefer the sound of the KSC35 and Portapro over the rest as they don't have the 'titanium' coated driver. UR40 is the most comfortable though and I can't imagine using anything other than over-the-ear headphones at the desk. The PortaPros are going to sound a little better, but rest on the ear rather than around them.These are very comfortable to wear even for long periods of time.You really have a low bar when you're sticking with running unamped only. But, these just fit what I want to pay for headphones and will most likely exceed your expectations for the price. Good bass, good midrange and good treble. In their class they have a little more oomph in the bass region than everything else I've tested and I like this without adding a muddy sound. They do need some equalization and if you do have any amplification available, even a PC motherboard with built-in amp, it changes them to match the KSC35/PortaPro, in my opinion.I do keep a Sennheiser headset/mic around that the mic started failing on me long ago, and while it isn't high end, you can definitely tell you're losing detail in sounds in games and music compared to the UR40.If you found something you think is better in the sub $100 range with no amplifier, let me know! Considering I prefer these over Sennheiser HD558s, I think that's a tall order. But I'd love to give something else a spin.Updated 7/16/2018, my original review stands! I'm using them right now.5Koss high quality, great priceHad an old pair of koss headphones I got from wallyworld that were really cheap but they had great sound. Up they broke after years of use and abuse from kids. These have a good sound as well, and a great price. Koss has been around making these things for decades, they have learned from experience how to make headphones right, can't say the same for some of these new brands out there with eccentric names, their quality might not be consistent, and their prices seem to be more based on asthetics than quality. These headphones are very lightweight, have a short cord, and come with two plug tips for use in iPod, or stereo. I'm sure these will last a long time, may eventually buy a cord extender, or another pair of koss headphones with a long cord to use to listen to vinyls late at night when I don't want to wake the whole house.5Comfort and good sound at a good priceSo far these are all I had hoped they would be. I like the comfort of around-ear headphones, and the immersion in sound. I'm no hard-core audiophile, but am a musician and love classical music. To my ear, these deliver a very good sound quality throughout the range. There may be a little distortion at high volumes, but I prefer keeping the volume in the low to middle range anyway, and nothing seems to be lost. They seem to be well made and the ear pads are comfortable. Time will tell how long they last. But it's quite a reasonable price, and I think I already have my money's worth.5Excellent value. Best open back under $50amazing open back sound without the high end price. I do recommend buying some velour earpads, the stock pads are very thin and uncomfortable. After that simple mod I find these to be very light weight and easy to wear for hours of music or gaming. The sound is very good considering the price. The treble is not harsh, the mids seem very balanced, and bass is "good enough". The sub bass is light, but clean. The open back design gives life to the sound, minimizing all of the unwanted reflections and resonances typically found in closed backs. There is no isolation, so be sure to have a quiet computer, otherwise you will hear all the fan noise. 9/10 (needs better stock earpads)5so that's great. I just want to say Well, first one I got was defective; no sound coming from right ear. Amazon replaced that for me, so that's great.I just want to say, the SOUND quality is amazing. Open back headphones means better sounds and range, better than the "canned" sound/feeling from closed back headphones. I don't know what koss does, but their sound quality is amazing that I can't go back to other cheap headphones, or else my OCD kicks in.80-200 dollar headphones are better, but this ain't that. This is a budget acoustic experience.Also these are the most comfortable headphones ever. I can wear these for hours. I guess it's because the frame doesn't really clamp down on your heads strongly/tightly as most other headphones. the ear cushions are soft as well.This headphone is for home use by the way because it's open back; everyone else will hear what you're listening to.NEGATIVE: The huge con that everyone probably knows with Koss is the structural build quality of their budget plastic headphones. They feel and are fragile. Koss used high quality sound drivers, so they probably had to cut costs somewhere. I don't blame or complain too much. Just pointing it out there that these headphones are not sturdy. You have to be careful with them. The wires are thin and short. The frame is plastic. Understood? Great.If you want strong sturdy headphones, you will have to pay more. I get it.Maybe sturdier materials will become cheaper in the future and we'll get a sturdy budget Koss headphones. That would be perfect. 4
