Thanks for the video, I just bought one!
Thanks for posting! I'm thinking about buying one of these
Now these headphones are on my level on ear light big drives clean simple looks 😮👍 are they open back they look it with the mesh on the back ps grate review
I have those exact same headphones in Florida prison man they were so awesome been a long time since I saw a pair we used to call them Pro 25
Is this good for gaming?
I have bought several of these headphones.....the sound great...........HOWEVER, you will lose sound on one side of the headphones if you don't handle these with extreme care. I think the problem is at the line going into the volume control. I notice if I wobble it, the sound sometimes comes back.......but not all the time.........apparently a little wire in there comes loose. You must be very careful when using these, they are not real durable. The silver piece inside and over the foam earpiece can come undone.......It has happened to me on three separate occasions. For the price, the sound is very good......don't expect longevity with these, though. This has been my experience.
Are they good for gaming
Highly recommended headphones!!!Sound Awesome with Android phonesI use them in my V20
I ordered these headphones, because of your great review. I have some very expensive headphones from Sennheiser and I wanted something I could travel with. You said you bought a carrying case for yours that fits well....can you recommend the one you bought? Appreciate it :-)
40 mm speakers, are you sure? Maybe 25mm?
Good review, thanks!
Give this video some thumbs if you want to see $80 vs $800 headphones... then we'll see what Tom is really made of.
I broke these the first day I got them on Christmas 2017 and I still feel so dumb
People who thought they could get something in the audio world for $8😂😂😂
Y dont you compare 8 $ then and 8 $ now
Listening this using beats ep
My cheap 10$ headphone survive 2 months
The headphones themself cost the same. You’re paying for beats logo and packaging.
Beats vs urbanears
So 8 bucks is fucking cheap for you!
My mum bought me a pair of beats when I was younger,they brought after a week,had to share with my brother but they broke eventually too,I didn’t yeet them down the stairs or stand on them,but they just decided to die by themselves after a week,didn’t really care I was young but I remember they were terrible
how about kz earphones?
I don't get why people think beats sound so bad. I have beats ep, i have tried so many other headphones, but for the price, they are some of the best headphones you can get. The only problem is the comfort, because they are quite small
Lol beats are all build and even then its overpriced
Watching this with Sennheiser that cost less than 80$ (and just bought new Pioneer pair which also less than 80$)
1. Pioneer got response frequency and impedance higher than Sennheiser and make mid-range sound clearer for me
2. My main pair Sennheiser cable is tearing in few spot after 3 years in service including forget it in washing machine drowned in detergent
likes 5+ times and it still working (silicone cable). Will make it as backup pair from now on
3. I've tried some Beats pair and i don't like it because their in-ear got too much bass and it dissolved all mid-range sound and their price is too much for me
4. I using all of my in-ear pairs with my DAC/AMP that can at least drive 100 ohms headphone (my both in-ear need around 14 - 18 ohms but i also using this DAC/AMP with my notebook and headphone)
listening to the headphones i won at a prize machine at shakeys
but for 80 you could also just buy a pair of k240s.
Watching on AirPods: Get on my level Peasants.
Deaf people be like 👁👄👁
My sister have that beats headphones and it hurt my ears when I'm listening to it for like 2hours.
I searched for the one guy in the comment section who defends beats but I didn’t find him OMEGALUL
And 10 years after you upload the video, this headphone still rocks, so: 1985- 2021 : 36 years, wow, that really is "if it work, don't change".
Best reviewer. Is missed.
Miss you Tyll
what's a better sounding headphone in this form factor?
Got these today. Pretty great so far!
Gotta wonder if this video turning up again on YT's front page is just a coincidence or a case of google's algorithms working their magic combining search histories and emails, because I just happened to get myself a pair of Porta Pros a little while ago.
So if it's the latter, too late Google, already got mine! :D I have to say I don't wonder anymore how these have stayed in production ever since 1984. Really solid budget portable headphone.
Are these hd650 killers?
The Portapro leaks sound like a sieve at louder volumes. Anyone else in close range can hear the sound, including people in public. This can annoy others. The solution? Get the Koss Sportapro. These have the same driver but the housing is different and contains much more sound.
They are also much more comfortable on the head and typically cost less than half of the Portapro. The Potapro does sound better but the Sportapro is at such a level of sound quality itself that it doesn't matter.
Classic headphones, hah. He's classic himself too ;-) Best review i saw untill now tho, thumbs up!
there is no need to worry about the cable breaking all you have to do is use two small zip ties give the cables a little slack and attach them to the bottom of the frames and at the bottom end use a small rubberband that holds it to the side of the jack and that way it is the cable itself that you have to worry about still not break proof but this will lengthen the life of the speaker mine have lasted over two years this way
They are great at this price point but as others have said, they tend to develop wire issues after a year or two. I can't speak for others, but I could never get Koss to honor my warranty even after shipping to them in accordance to their directives. Heck, I couldn't even get an email reply from them. Only 1 thumbs up...
Koss should replace these for FREE until they fix the wire connections. I love the headphones, but HATE their warranty for a KNOWN ISSUE. Koss, your policy is unethical!
they look like they'd leak a lot of sound. does anybody know for sure?
Uhm, uhm, UHM
Great review, love seeing Koss get some love. Only thing is the KSC75 is not the same exact driver, it's their "titanium coated" driver while the KSC35 uses the Portapro driver. SportaPro also uses the PortaPro driver.
The UR40s, which I'm wearing now, use the KSC75 driver. I recommend the KSC35/PortaPro (I own both of those as well). The UR40/KSC75 do not sound the same, similar, but lose some bass and the sound isn't as rich. If you're going in on any of these, the PortaPro is the one to get even though I prefer the over-the-ear design of the UR40s. For over the ear, step over and up to the Philips X2 IMO because the UR40s kind of spoil the KSC35/PortaPro sound.
PortaPro is the no brainer standard headphone to buy, everyone should own a pair. I personally prefer them to Sennheiser 555s and all unamped headphones you can find under $200. The next step up is the Philips X2 at $300. Step up from there would be Koss ES-950, it's an insane value even at $1000. All in my opinion, some people love brands like Sennheiser but I generally prefer more direct, impactful sound that most people prefer.
Can someone please answer me if they are uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time? I usually get pain in my earlobes when I use on-ear headphones.
I made up my mind about those. I'm going to buy one. People say that exception made for the plug - which is not as durable as the rest, but seems to be an easy fix - they are durable and very good for their price. With those things in mind, I'm going to have to try them out.
Just grabbed them for $12!
Hard to beat these headphones, the sound is just excellent. I've had atleast 5 pairs the last 15 years. Also got the Sporta Pro.
These are great when you can get em on sale at around $25-30 bucks. Cable is pretty fragile though, so that warranty will come in handy.
which sound better?, the samson sr850 or the koss UR40 with an amp
10 years of use, I recommend. Very pleasant to hear ad wear.
More forgiving than Beyers. I agree with you, you forgot it very quick in a good way
You can remove a piece of foam that is behind the driver so that it is completely open at the back
Koss porta pro or this headphones???
I want a cheap headphones to listen in the office.
These are studio monitoring headphones??
