"Best i have had!!"4.5 starson by siriustucson
Pros: Great bass, comfortable, well priced
Cons: treble sometimes too defined.
Summary: Well, lets start this out by responding to some of the other "notable" reviews. As one said " unit broke easy when my son played with it". Well, you are not really into this stereophone thing are you? Let your kids play with anything and POOF it eventually breaks. Another i noticed was "after 8 hours of use, my ears hurt" Well, uhmm, 8 friggen hours?? do you have a life? I am not sure whether you are saying that your ears hurt from the pressure of the unit or the fact that music blared into your ears for 8 hours straight. Now, onto my honest as can be review..... I have always owned koss. They have always treated me very well. I branched off to the Bose QC set. I didnt like them. Before you judge my mentality, the Bose was definatly worth the money! The sound was incredible. The fine tune on the trble was great. The dislikes i had was after 10 minutes of wearing them, the pressure gave me a headache and the batteries were expensive when you have to replace them weekly. And, of ya, they dont work without the batteries in them. As for the noise cancelation thing, thats what a volume nob is for. I dont fly so thats out. Anyways, i found these Koss Pro3AA and i had to try them. I have had them for about a year and let me tell you, i love them!! Some issues with the highs being to defined on some songs, and the plug is starting to mess up where i have to spin it at times to get both sides to work. But i plan on sending them back for repair soon. All in all, price aside, these are great. I listen to these on the computer all the time with my iTunes and it is a step away from my normal hectic life. As for another review said "volume not high enough on PC" well bud, the Bose wasnt either. Thats why i bought a NewQ Platinum Equalizer. If the Bose is low volume on a pc, so isnt just about anything out there. So the bottom line is, i highly rec this unit as it is the best i have had so far.
