Very comfortable with good sound quality.
C. Hammonds
They flex easily and though I have a big head, these are comfortable for long periods of time.

My only issue with these headphones is the fact that the cord is not easily detachable.

These headphones are great. You can't find anything else that sounds this good in this price range. Koss does stereophones right!
I have had my UR-20s for more than a year. They still sound great and have been stuffed into my backpack almost every day since i bought them. One of my size adjuster clips has broken, but it is no doubt due to my reckless use. Even broken, they fit comfortably on the head.
The ear cups are big enough for anyone's ears. They cover your ear completely and do not "crowd" your ear like the smaller UR-29s do.
The bass is amazing and the insulating ring makes such a close seal with your head that you will not hear anything while you have these headphones on. I don't like listening to music while I sleep, but I have used these headphones as noise reducers (without playing any music) on many occasions and bus rides.
Note that these headphones are larger than most. This is probably why they sound so great. I especially like that the headband is made of rubber coated metal to keep the phones close to your head, with a cloth balancing strap below that to make it comfortable in any situation.
Koss is the king as far as affordable, amazing stereophones go. Buy the UR-20s and you'll be glad you did. I have had no problems.

I've had mine for three years now, and I find the UR20s indispensible, since I live in an apartment and can't turn the TV up to a decent level otherwise. There's reasonable bass; you would expect so for the size of them. Always look at the specs. The low number is the bass, the high number (usually in the tens of thousands) is the treble. This set's bass is 30 Hertz. That's That's not a bad number; 20 is average, 12 would be phenomenal. The treble is set at 20,000 Hertz. Theoretically, only dogs can hear frequencies above that, but I think a headphone with a figure over that just seems to sound brighter in the treble, which is what I like. I hate unclear treble and muddy, distorted bass. Another number you look at is sensitivity; the better ones are always over 100. So, I guess based on the specs, these 'phones are about average.
The cord length is excellent at 8 feet. I can be a reasonable distance away from the TV without straining the cord; I've even slept with them on without ear fatigue.
These headphones make movie watching a whole new experience...you get surround sound without the expense!
I've had a great experience with the UR20s and I recommend them for use with home theater, even if you just have a 20" portable like mine. You need an adapter to plug them into a home stereo, and there's plenty of cord where you can be either reasonably mobile or you can sit in your favorite chair some distance away. I think they're great. The only thing that would make them the best is better specs, and that's hard to find at this price range.

I basically bought these because they were cheap. Cheap things are not always bad and these headphones are a great example. The UR-20 provides excellent sound for both music and movies. It has excellent bass and sound isolation. I am by no means an audiophile but I know good sound when I hear it and these headphones produce great sound, especially for its price.

Style Name: UR-20 Verified Purchase
I first purchased a pair of these headphones around a decade ago at a supermarket because they were cheap and looked like they'd just do what I needed for a little bit of time until I was able to purchase better headphones (I used them for practicing guitar. I needed headphones that would be able to handle the tonal range I'd be using). I never ended up purchasing other headphones because these were simply outstanding. They always had a very clean, super crisp, warm sound to them. Needless to say, I was impressed. I unfortunately broke them one day and just used a pair of headphones a friend gave to me. They were higher end phones, but they just didn't sound the same. Fast forward to present day-
I was thinking about these things so I decided to give them another go.

I couldn't have been happier. To put it in perspective, I have a pair of Shures that I paid 5 TIMES as much for that simply doesn't sound as crisp, tight, warm, and clear as these Koss headphones do. I use these headphones for gaming, listening to music, watching TV, watching movies, etc. They work extremely well in all these applications. And, lest we forget, these headphones are less than $20.00... you just can't go wrong. A balanced sound where the mids are most prominent, the highs are crisp but not tinny, and the lows are very smooth, but definitely not overpowering. These headphones are also comfortable. They has a canvas-type band that goes over the head, which is very comfortable and keeps the headphones in whatever position you want. They seem to have just the right amount of tension around the ears. The ears are padded with adequate foam that doesn't slide around too much.

I am not much of a reviewer, and usually avoid 5 or 1 star reviews. The reasoning behind my 5th star is purely value. $14!

This is my second pair of these headphones. I broke my first pair when it slipped off my lap and swung under my rocking chair before I leaned back...haha, oops. No headphone would have survived this stupidity.

I am not looking for high quality sound. These are not high quality. I use these to listen to podcasts, and the occasional YouTube video, late at night when everyone is asleep. The sound quality of most podcasts, or video, is poor, so why get high performance phones? They don't hiss or hum or anything annoying.

I am looking for comfort. These headphones are big and cushioned. I can keep them on for hours. They do get warm & sweaty which sucks, but unlike other phones they sit around the pinna(Outer Ear) instead of pressing them against your skull which becomes very uncomfortable.

OH YEAH! CORD LENGTH! That was the main reason I chose these over comparable phones. They are listed as 8ft, but mine measures 8' 5" from plug tip to Left Side Ear Cup. If I remember correctly, other cords are 3-5 feet. Big difference. As I said above I am in a rocking chair while using these, and usually working on something and tend to move around. This cord allows me to move around my work area no problem.

They are also made quite well. I owned my first pair for 3 years, and have had this set for almost a year now. The strap that goes over your head is flexible allowing you to take one cup off an ear, also allows some give if you happen to step on them, haha. Still plenty rigid though while wearing them. Cord is thick and durable, even after being squashed under my rocker for a night.
