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.]

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 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 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.

The GOOD:
These headphones sound great. They have excellent bass response and the mid/high frequencies are just fine. I did not experience too much bass while listening with my friend's IPOD or my 10 year old portable CD player. When I tried them through my pioneer stereo amp, I could crank the bass up all the way without getting any distortion. So they can handle bass very nicely which is great for bass lovers out there! ' They also sound great when listening to DVD's or when playing games. I play CSS. Explosions feel like you are right there! I must say I have not listened to their higher end headphones like the PRO 4AA's, so I can't compare the sound quality with that. I did however compare them to the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7's and the TD85's does not sound bad for less than half the price. The TD85 has better bass response, but the ANC7's highs are better.

The BAD:
I must agree with the other reviewers that the fit is just terrible. Those hard plastic headband ends are like daggers in your skull. I could not stand them for longer than 5 minutes. I contacted KOSS and asked them if I could bend the headband and the metal adjusters on the side, without violating the warranty. They said I could go ahead, so I did! I bent the metal adjusters inward at the ends to remove the dagger feel. Then I also bent the headband more open so that they don't fit too tight. Man, now I am happy. I can wear them all day without any problems. I just love them now...

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.
