Very nicely made, plastic shell/headband and volume controls, looks fairly durable...only time will tell. The volume control is very conveniently placed, has good range, and is very useful for on-the-fly adjustments.
I used two sources of audio to test Comfort and sound quality: Music and games.
MUSIC: One thing I noticed immediately was the strong bass presence. This is an excellent headset for ANY kind of music. I tried it with orchestra, rock, jazz, lounge and dance. Bass is very strong, nice highs+mids, I was able to hear flute and clarinet without having to strain. It's easy to wear these for hours without even noticing you had them on!
GAMES: I tried the headset with three games: Red Orchestra, Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2. I was simply blown away at the quality of sound. Especially in Red Orchestra, I was amazed by the clear cracks of gunfire. The positional audio is okay, but there's no real dramatic positional effects. The rumbling of tanks and explosions was made very clear and enjoyable with the strong bass. Voice quality (from both characters and voice chat) is also very excellent.
COMFORT: I usually play games for 2+ hours at a time, so wearing 'phones that deliver great sound quality without hurting my ears are a must. This headset does a pretty good job at this. It's a little heavy on the ears, and makes them sweat a LITTLE, and I usually have to take a small break every hour to rub my ears, but it's not bad at all, considering the excellent sound quality.Read more ›
The only major flaw to this, really, is the size. Some people dont like those bigger headsets, i dont mind personally. Even though its big, its comfortable, nice big oval shape ensures that it doesnt rest on your ears. The long mic is precurved to stick out infront, right to the side of your mouth. And the volume control is nice (its just a cheapy slider, not a round dial like most), but lacks a mic mute switch/button.
The product is great for a cheaper headset, highly recommended. Puts bass sound out very well, too.
Recently I started doing Internet DJ Radio, and needed a headphone with microphone. I looked at the Sennheiser and Logitech headsets, but wanted to give Koss another chance. Being an "audiophile" at heart, always loved the quality and durability of Koss earphones. After doing some research on all headsets, the Koss stereo phones had the best quality of sound, both for listening as well as having the microphone quality, and still being lightweight.
After getting these stereo phones, was pleased with not only the comfort, but how light they are. The quality of sound is excellent (as you would expect from a professional earphone, and from Koss), and the microphone is very sensitive (though Koss is not know in the audiophile world for recording, these earphones are an excellent introduction of a company not known for their microphones).
I will be enjoying using these earphones for many years, and considering that I still have audio earphones, from Koss, that I purchased almost 15 to 20 years ago, working, this is by no means, a small statement.
These stereophones "feel" robust, as you would expect from a Professional Earphone. The microphone boom allows you to move it up out of the way when not needed, and the swivel mount for the boom is even on a form of shock absorber, which you wouldn't expect, but makes these communication stereophones in a much higher quality bracket than you would think for the price. The closed ear cup gives excellent isolation for the microphone (which I might add, when I took off the earphones, the microphone actually caused feedback).Read more ›
Extremely well built in my opinion. So you might ask then why 4 stars??? Well the mic is not adjustable at all. The boom swings up completely and thats perfect but not in or out. Now... in its defense the mic performs very well. Crisp and deep sounds are flawless. I will be using them for normal functions on my PC but will also use them for virtual classrooms. There was one reviewer that mentioned not being able to hear your voice when speaking into the mic. Like cupping your hears or having water in them. This can be easily fixed by clicking on the speaker icon in your taskbar and checking the "MIC" box. Voila sound!!! Just like the effect when using a normal home phone. All in all I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it to all who want a quality headset.

It's worked well for quite a while and with decent sound quality. Biggest grip: the wind screen has fallen off over the years.
I like the volume slider, however. Read more
