Good sound quality and very comfortable.

The bad: They advertise them as having 'hear through sound' meaning you can hear and be involved in a conversation happening around you while listening to music.

It even comes with a lifetime warranty if anything does happen to them!

First off, these are respectable, good sounding, semi-open cans. The bass is solid with decent extension that won't overwhelm everything else. There are bassier cans out there (Sony's XB series comes to mind), but for this price, nothing that won't muddy up the midrange. The mids are all right, perhaps a bit recessed. I agree with another reviewer that there's a bit of rolloff in the highs, but that's how I like it. They do have a sound signature reminiscent of a KSC-75, but somehow warmer. I get the impression that Koss' new (and perhaps a bit flimsy) foam earpads are responsible for the slightly warmer sound, but whatever the reason, I enjoy the sound so I wouldn't change that.

So why the low rating? Because the headband is so short that it will only fit children! Seriously, if your head is even remotely "tall" (for lack of a better term), these will not fit properly, even at full extension. The "isolating" foam cups will ride up on your ears, preventing a proper seal at the bottom, and thus destroy these cans' otherwise decent fidelity. It's a crying shame, really. Except for the inexcusable fit for us cranially-endowed types, I really liked these.

I've sampled many headphones ranging from those cheap $15 Sony headphones you buy at Staples to the highly priced $200 Dre's beats. And I must say, the KOSS UR55 is definitely a great buy. Prior to owning these, I went though about 4 Sony MDR-V150. Each of them broke or wore out after so much wear and usage.

I was a little bit skeptic with the KOSS UR55's because I'm not all that familiar with the brand and little opinion about these are available. However, I decided to take a chance and order these. I'm glad to say I made the right choice! The vibration and clarity of the bass is very strong and stable without distorting the sound. Whether you listen to techno, metal, or hip-hop at max volume, the bass delivers a great quality of sound. The treble is right there with it as far as clarity and quality. The UR55 headphones are also highly durable and robust. They won't snap easily with it's thick plastic surface reinforced with a bended metal sheet. You can easily tell these are made for power listeners. It even comes with a lifetime warranty if anything does happen to them! As far as comfort goes, they hug your head pretty firmly to give you that full live experience. Even though they're adjustable, they may feel a bit tight on the ears at first but after a while you get accustomed to it (the ear cups are foamy). The sound leaks quite a bit so these are not noise canceling per say.

Although they're not as great as Bose or Dre's beats, they come very close. For $50, you get durability, great bass, clear treble, and a lifetime warranty to keep you listening without buying new ones at full price. Its well worth it!

So, a few weeks ago I started shopping for decent headphones so I could listen to my music in good quality without being at home, so I was looking for something portable, comfortable, but that sounded great.

The first pair of headphones I decided on were the Koss UR40s, which sounded great and were very comfortable, and still quite portable. However, I broke the first pair in less that two weeks when I was walking out my door and the cable caught on the door knob and gave it a slight tug. So, I got another pair for free with Koss' warranty. I was a little more careful with the second pair, but I broke them also when I stood up to get out of the car, and they caught on the handle for the reclining seat. This time the tug was a little more severe, they wouldn't even make a sound after that. So, I was disappointed, and didn't want to spend money on new headphones, but didn't want to have to keep replacing the UR40. But I had a $25 gift card to amazon and figured I could get something around that price that was a little sturdier. So, I settled on the Sony MDR-XD200, which seemed to have good reviews and was inexpensive and had a thicker cable than the UR40. However, when they arrived I was disappointed. They were uncomfortable, heavier, loose fitting, and didn't sound nearly as good as the Koss phones. The soundstage was slightly better (probably the bigger driver?), but the midrange and bass was muddier. The treble seemed to extend a bit better, but treble and soundstage barely matter to me when the midrange and bass clarity are so poor. They also weren't as loud, my soundcard didn't drive them very well, I had to use my reciever. Also not portable at all.

Solid headphones. Bass and trebles are solid. Mid's tend to be muddy which is my only objection. Hopefully once they break-in I will be even more pleased. The porta-pros are excellent sounding headphones as well.

Bought these a year ago specifically for use with a Sony mp3 player. A few things I noticed, yes they are a little small for my head, I'm approximately a 7 3/4 size hat, so I have a fairly large melon. I have to open these up all the way to fit, but once there they are comfortable. The bass is there,but not overwhelming, actually better than a pair of Sony MDR V6's Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil I have, and because the highs roll off before the V6's, the sound is not as fatiguing for extended periods (EQ always set flat). The cord is short, so if you're going to use them for pretty much anything but portable, you need an extension cord. They have held up well over the past year with only a little bit of outer insulation coming off (about an inch or so), the outer shield is braided so the strength does not appear to be compromised. Overall I am happy with these, I gave it four stars for the tight fit, but give five stars for the sound quality, I really do like the way these sound.
