Sound quality: I'm very much not an audiophile, but I found the sound quality to be perfectly satisfactory. I tend to not like much bass, as it triggers migraines fo me, and I never had a problem with these. If you like bass boost, these are not the headphones for you.
Comfort: As you can see from the title, I found these to be incredibly comfortable. The headband is padded and does not press uncomfortably on the head. The ear cups are incredibly plush amd large, making a great deal around the entire ear. The cup cushion is deep enough I never had my ear press against the speaker, even when laying on my side on a pillow. I later purchased a pair of 'sleep headphones' and found I still preferred these. After maybe an hour of use the speaker wafer in the sleep headphones would hurt my ear pressed against the pillow, whereas these were so cushy and completely surrounded my ear and were able to be worn for hours at a time in any position.
Functionality: Being corded headphones, for as long as they lasted they just worked. There was no crackling or sound distortion, just crisp sound. I got these to watch video on my tablet or smartphone, and wanted a shorter cord than nearly all of the similar models offered. Yes, it is 8 feet, but really is only around 3.5 feet coiled. It can comfortably stretch to around 5 feet before tension on the coil would begin to pull on the headphones or put pressure on the jack.
The fact that the cable is not detachable is a drawback. Being able to swap out cables for intended use would be handy, but wasn't something I needed. Looking back a few years later, I'll be purchasing bluetooth headphones from now on, as the cable was annoying at times. I bought a pair of Bluedio Turbine T2s a few months ago, and found the ear cup cavity to be just a little too small for comfort during extended use, and the padding too shallow so that my ears sometimes pressed uncomfortably against the speaker. The bluetooth feature is nice, plus the great battery life, but I still reverted to these because they were so darn comfy. Now I'm in the market for a new pair, and am using measurements of the ear cups as a basis of my new purchase (Avantree Audition aptX).
Bottom line, if you are in the market for a durable, affordable, decent pair of short-corded headphones, these are the best you can buy.
Edit: it's been a couple months since I bought my new one and I still stand by with what I said but the one that got sent to me but literally the day I got it the left ear fell off and broke as I put it on my head.
But they should never mention the isolation as I can almost hear a pin drop with these on. No isolation what so ever. They do not reduce exterior sound at all.
clarity and detail that you would with the Pro lines of
Audio Technica, Sennheiser, or Beyerdynamic.
With that said, the Koss R-80's are simply a great value
for the price and sonically acceptable.
I'm a female with a small head, and even the R-80
phones are too big (had to put extra foam on the top)
but got them to feel comfortable, and that is specifically
why I'm keeping them.
I own high-end phones, too, but they are all super heavy
on my head; they push and pinch my ears and give me headaches.
I gave four stars, not five, because Koss packs the R-80's in a plastic bag, not a box,
and there is no 1/4 adapter included.
And lastly, headphones, and even the type of music you
like are all subjective. So which headphones are truly the best?
The one that sounds great to you.
