1.0 out of 5 stars Disgruntled Koss fanboy, November 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Koss Pro-4AA Studio Quality Headphones (Electronics)
I purchased an arbitrary Koss headset from a non-name electronics store in South Africa, which blew my mind with its quality for 4 full years before breaking whilst changing continents. Porta pros are fantastic and have been my staple ever since. I decided to splurge on this unit, hoping to get something more like the (arbitrary) full size headset I mentioned initially. Koss normally sounds great to me, I am not an audiophile, but some headsets are better than others and Koss is the best I have heard. This set did not deliver on this basic actuality, and I drastically prefer the sound from even Porta pros over this.

I don't know if my set is broken or not, or whether the 3.5 mm jack I am driving it from simply lacks the oomph required to make these sound decent.

I consider myself to be relatively robust, and these headphones seriously put a kink in my neck, which I could tollerate if the sound quality warranted it.

Thank you for this. I bought a pair some years ago and I have to tell you I am baffled by the good reviews; these are a disaster. Your review kind of explains that. I thought it was just me!

Guys, you need to drive these with a powerful amp or receiver. If you even need a 1/4 inch adapter don't think of using these headphones. Gosh! Even the specs should warn you of this. 250 ohms i kinda high.
