4.0 out of 5 stars Handy Gadget, 3 Easy questions to make your decision., March 30, 2009
This review is from: Koss VC20 Volume Control (Electronics)
I purchased this item with a new pair of headphones for my wife and I to use with our laptop. The Koss volume control does exactly what it's supposed to and is a handy convenience to adjust volume quickly and easily. I didn't notice any signal degradation as a result of having the volume control plugged in-line with the headphones. If you need a little extra cord length then that would be an added benefit. My wife absolutely loves the convenience but I've concluded I could just as easily live without it.

Should you buy it? Just answer three questions and you'll have your final answer. 1) Would you prefer a little extra cord length? 2) In everyday headphone use, do you find yourself frequently adjusting the volume? 3) Do you have the extra cash to burn?

My wife answered yes to all three while I answered no. Did we keep it? You know what they say, happy wife, happy life. :)

You have described the necessity or unnecessity of purchasing this item succinctly. I have taken your side (and against your wife's view-point). You did help me to decide that I dont need one!! I may add, as it may help others to understand more thoroughly, that should you need to decrease the volume, all you have to do is to remove your headphone to the temple, instead of having it on the ears directly!! Thanks once again.

I go with the Mrs. here. Moving headphones to my temple interferes with quality of the sound. Also, if I have earbuds, this is a great little gem to have.
