Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Koss KSC75 Ear Clips

(1/1)

Overall, a good value; especially if you can buy them in a store and avoid shipping costs.

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Koss KSC75 Ear Clips

(1/6)

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.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Koss KSC75 Ear Clips

(1/1)

When they fail (there's no "if" about it - I use mine daily and they seem to last about a year), KOSS's lifetime warranty is effectively a glorified $3 coupon. I've used the service twice and they're relatively quick. SO WHY BUY 'EM? For starters, they're very comfortable. They're light enough you can have them in for hours

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

Koss KSC75 Ear Clips

(1/1)

Edit: I've changed my review from 5 to 1 star. This is the 6th pair of these things I've ordered and THEY ALL DIE ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS!!! One minute they are working great and then suddenly for no reason at all one side just stops working never to work again. This last time I was sitting perfectly still watching a movie on my screen and BAM left speaker dead as a door nail. Oh and the warranty is a joke! They want you to pay $9 for return shipping as well as pay to ship them there in the first place which all total would be more than just buying a new pair outright
