The GOOD: These headphones sound great.

I've always found Koss to be the best bang-for-your-buck headphone manufacturer.

Very bass heavy, hurt my ears to wear for extended periods.

These are replacing the TD80's at the station, and they're good enough that I may decide to leave my Sennheiser HD-497's at home. The TD80's individual volume controls were a nuisance and the fit was somewhat tight. The TD85's, by contrast, have dropped the individual volume wheels and, if anything, tend to be too loose-fitting. Not recommended if you move your head vigorously while listening with phones. On the other hand, the improved definition in the bass frequencies along with the highly present and responsive mid- and high-range frequencies make the loose fit a comfort issue only: the listener is as "close" to the sound as he could hope to be. In fact, the mid-range is perhaps a little too pronounced and unforgiving, bringing out a certain amount of unwanted harshness in performers' voices. (Some of this effect is undoubtedly due to the extremely high efficiency of these phones. After the Sennheiser's, I'm not used to ratcheting down on the volume control.)

Definitely a quality pair of phones for the money. I doubt the wider frequency response of the Koss Pro Studio or Titanium headphones, even if detectable, would make them worth the added cost and weight.

[Since writing the above, I've had a chance to compare them to the Koss UR40's, which are not only lighter, better fitting and more comfortable than the TD85's but fuller sounding! The TD85's are more rugged and have a long cord, which may make them a better candidate for some home and studio applications. But if you take your music with you or work close to a microphone for 2-3 hour stretches, check out the UR40's.]

I made the mistake of ordering these and taking the previous review lightly. I ordered these for my laptop, and they have the same kind of boxy sound (as if you are listening through a seashell) quality I was afraid of. I just dont understand all the decible range stuff. I have tried other [cheaper] KOSS models and was satisfied. These, on the other hand, must hold some other uses aside from personal leisure listening.

Good side:
However, they are very durable (the most durable Ive seen) and may suffice for professional studios.
These headphones also do a good job of concelling outside noise, and sound much much better when listening to rock or metal as opposed to orchestral music.

Been a fan of the TD series of Koss headphones for going on 20 years, and the 85s are a quality successor. Rating the sound of headphones is a subjective business at best, but I've enjoyed very much the quality output on these cans. I've always found Koss to be the best bang-for-your-buck headphone manufacturer. Their lifetime warranty and the fact that they are made in the USA (Milwaukee FTW) are huge bonuses. But again, the quality is unfailing.

These headphones are pretty light for full-ear, solidly-built cans, and I've had no problem with comfort. I've used them for leisure listening, radio dj work, and travel, and they've been great on all fronts.

I'm no audiophile, and it's been awhile since I bought over-the-ear phones. But I was very surprised to find that these phones actually seem to amplify background noises by virtue of their mechanical design! Even when not plugged in, certain background sounds (like air circulation system, lower frequencies of voices, and the like) actually get louder when I put these phones over my ears, and I don't believe it's just a perceived sensation due to other sounds being attenuated. This may be analogous to the "boxy" sound referenced in another review. And of course since these cans don't have ANR (or much passive NR for that matter) the noise remains noticeably in the background while I'm actually using them to listen to music.

Part of the problem seems to be that the ports are pointed straight up, and I'm working in a commercial space/cube farm where most of the ambient noise comes from overhead. Placing scotch tape over the ports does seem to have helped. So although the actual quality of reproduction for music seems to be very good for the money, I can't recommend these for use in anything but a very quiet environment.

I must disagree with the other reviews. I have had this pair of headphones for years now, and I wear them often, for long periods of time. They're the most comfy ones I've had on my fat head. I was shocked when I saw the bad reviews here. Don't hesitate to give them a try.

I bought these as a replacement for the TD 65 model that I have had for years. I really love my 65 model but the pads have lost their covering and fall off because the glue does not stick as well. I have since found out that I can order replacements from Koss and I have done so. These headphones do have very good sound but for me they are quite uncomfortable. The TD 65's had a much thicker pad so they really covered and hugged your ears well. They are more light weight and the plastic headband is flexible and comfotable. The TD 85 is more heavy duty but the top band is not as flexible and the hard plastic ends that hold the headphones adjustment bands give me a headache after a little while of pressing against my skull. I listen to music and audio books almost all day long when I am working so these don't work well for me. I also tried the UR40 and returned them since I prefer a closed model that keeps as much of the sound in my ear so as not to disturb my co-workers. Maybe the TD 80 would be a better choice.
