Koss KSC75

The Koss KSC75 are budget on-ear headphones with a stable ear-hook design. They're compact and will easily fit into your pockets. They also have an open design and a decently well-balanced sound which makes them a very affordable critical listening option but they may lack a bit of bass for more casual listeners. Unfortunately, they're not very durable and look a little cheap.

On my 3rd pair, might've figured out the problem

So while I love these headphones, I'm on my third pair now, they last about a year for me before dieing. At first I thought it was failing cables, but whenever I opened the headphones up, there was no continuity between the two sides of the driver, so it turns out the problem is the micro wires goin...

Good sound, short cord

These phones have a pleasant sound and are comfortable given their size. They are superior to other headphones of this type in the same price category. Note, the total length of the cord from plug to phones is 4' 2". I would make two alterations in design: longer cord and smaller ear clips. Overall,...

Great sound for not much money but they won't last

These headphones sound better than some expensive alternatives which is impressive. I like the way they latch onto the ear so I can put one on during work and still hear all the background work chatter or put both on and drown it out without messing up my hair, so aces for that. However they don't l...

Great for joggers

I've owned these for over 4 years now (I didn't buy from Walmart, but they are the same ones) and I like to jog. I was always having problems with the 'ear bud' type falling out while jogging listening to my iPod. The sound is pretty good for something this small (Over the years I have bought these ...

Fantastic for running but a huge design flaw.

I have now purchased 7 pairs of these headphones. They are fantastic for running (or anything that gets you sweating) because they don't allow sweat to accumulate in your ear the way plastic in ear buds do. They have a good sound for what they are and allow you to still hear what's going on around y...

Best Value Headset

I am a gamer, which means I am tech savy. Through the years I have gone through tons of headsets, headphones, buds, and all manor of 3.5mm jack audio devices. My first impression was a little low, but after I got these and hooked them up to my Iphone. BAM! the bass is close to my Bose Headphones, th...

Best in class sound, worst in class durability

The business plan behind these headphones is genius: make something that sounds so good that when it breaks the customer will buy another one. The design flaw, as it has been mentioned ad naseum in the reviews, is that the headphone jack varies between flimsy (if you get an L-shaped jack) and non-fu...

Amazing sound, but poor quality materials

I wish I could recommend these. They are so comfortable and they sound so great! The first time I put a pair of these on, I was blown away by the incredible sound quality. The problem is that they just don't last. I've bought 4 pairs of these things so far. All of them have failed within a month or ...
