The Koss Plug revolutionized the world of in-ear headphones. A first of its kind, these are stereo, noise isolating in-ear headphones that deliver the kind of accurate acoustical reproduction and isolation typically found in high-end, closed-style high fidelity headphones. A dynamic element positioned just outside the ear connects to a tubular port structure that inserts into a soft, expandable cushion. The soft, foam cushion expands for a custom comfort fit with every listening experience. It also improves isolation, plugging out ambient sounds, and enhances deep bass and treble clarity.
Koss's miniature portable earphone, affectionately dubbed "The Plug," makes use of an ear-cushion material (similar to that used in sound-blocking earplugs) that slowly expands in your ear canal to provide a custom fit and maximum sonic isolation from external noises. A detachable, extrawide headband makes these Koss-termed "stereophones" easy to carry or store.
For accurate sound reproduction, these earbud-style headphones are made with oxygen-free copper voice coils and neodymium iron boron magnets. You can enjoy them with either a portable or home audio device, since both 0.125-inch and 0.25-inch adapter jacks are included.
"The Plug" weighs a mere quarter ounce and has a frequency response rated at an impressive 16 to 23,000 Hz (though its unlikely you'll hear bass output anywhere close to what you'd get from a similarly rated loudspeaker!).
Impedance is 16 ohms, with less than a 0.3 percent distortion and reasonably high sensitivity of 112 dB SPL/1 mW.

Sound: I'm no audiophile by nature but these headphones sound just right for my taste of every genre
Isolation: these headphones isolate you from outside sources of sound really well mainly when the music is on
Fit: squeeze and place and let it expand Simple as that
Price: these are exceptionally well priced I'm prepared to buy another pair if mine were to break
Foam buds: they will last awhile but extensive use may require you to get more earbuds good thing these come with extra set of foam buds
So I work in a bubble factory at the time and I noticed its loud and I wanted some headphones so I could listen to my sort of music when I felt like it so I started to look around and I forget to mention price wasn't the issue I just needed a pair to get the job done so after searching through the internet I found these and I liked them from the first day I got them only problem is they isolate so well you can hear nothing when the music is going XD but if you are looking for some that fits near my criteria then go for these I still have these after a couple months if I'm correct :).

I added this following paragraph on 7/24/2014. . . . . . . . . . . . .............
I have since received the ear buds. I have read some of the customer comments. yes they can be a bit of a problem to get the ear buds to stay in the ear. You have to wiggle the ear buds around in the ear till you find what I would call THAT SWEET SPOT were they sit just right in the ear. Take your time you'll find that spot.
As far as what the ear buds sound like. I will compare those little ear buds to the Koss full size earphones. Wow what a bass response and what a high end response. Those ear buds ROCK! There isn't one bit of distortion whether I'm listening to my music at low volume all the way up to the MAX Volume of my MP3 Player.
I'm sorry I didn't buy them much sooner. I'm a 50's-60's 70's rocker at heart. But I also listen to Classical and some Opera. Those ear buds bring out sounds I have ben missing with the other ear buds I have owned. I'm going to look for my Walkman. Yes I still have a Walkman. I'm also going to look for my Discman. WHY do I want to find them? I want to see if they still work. I also want to plug in my Koss Ear Buds into my Walkman and Discman I'd like to hear what Jethro Tull, Led Zep, Deep Purple and my 50's and 60's music sounds like also Maddam Butterfly and Aidia when I listen with my Koss ear buds. I'll bet I will not change my mind about them at all.
The one 60's song that sounds great when I listen to it on my MP3 player is
Ina-Gadda-Da-Vida aka In The Garden of Eden. I have the CD I hope I can find my Discman soon so I can listen. <VBG>
My first set of Koss Headphones was bought when I was pretty young. I believe I was preteen. By the way I'm 56 years old. I wore out those headphones to beyond repair. They feel apart. I was a kid. LOL
My next set of Koss Headphones was when I was a DJ. I bought the same set I had when I was younger. They served me very well. In fact I believe I still have them. They're the old BIG over the ear headphones. They still work the same way they did from when I bought them.
The next two sets of Koss headphones were the Porta-Pro headphones. I bought two sets of headphones. One for me one for my wife. So we could listen to our Walkmans on the way to work while we rode the NYC subway. I'm dating myself - Walkmans. LOL It did not stop there. Whenever I wanted a set of headphones I looked for only ONE Name - "KOSS"...
If I remember right if the Headphones break Koss will repair them or replace them free of charge. From my first Headphones I liked the companies guarantee or warrantee. I have never had to return any of the headphones I have ever bought to Koss for repair or replacement.
I have enjoyed the music I have heard while wearing my Koss Headphones. From when I was a young kid to this day. The sound that comes out of Koss headphones has always had a great sound from the low bass to the treble high's. I believe Koss Headphone to be the best sounding headphones on the market. How can you go wrong when you bought Koss!
The Earbuds that came with my MP3 player have stopped working. I decided to replace them with Koss Earbuds. I am very confident the Koss Earbuds I just purchased are just as good as the rest of the Koss products I have bought over the years.
