Then along comes these Koss KTXPRO1 headphones for just shy of 14 bucks with free shipping (w/Prime).
So, it's actually quite simple. They're not the Sennheiser HD-590's... But they're amazingly close and they don't cost just shy of $300.00.
Without question, these are in a class by themselves. You'll see lots of similar headphones in the same price group and higher. They're not even close. I've bought some pretty pathetic sounding headphones that appeared to be similar for banging around at work etc. The difference is stunning! My off the cuff estimation would be about a $175.00 sound for 14 bucks. For crying out loud, throw them 14 bucks and give em a whirl. That was basically my feeling.
I only wish we'd had this kind of a deal back in Boston at Tech HiFi. It would have been very exciting watching people's faces as they'd give em a listen. We had nothing shy of $150.00 that would compare with these foolish things. Hat's off to Koss...
I remember the brand way back then. Heck, they made headphones for Radio Shack for many years. I remember a pair with liquid filled earcups... The top of the line at the time. They weighed a ton though.
The Realistic Pro 35's where an early generation headphone made by Koss for Radio Shack built on this same titanium / neodymium magnet design. As another reviewer on here stated. The specs are identical but the price at least double or more.
Hey, have fun! You'll love these things. I've got a drawer full of them just in case they disappear down the road when "all the jobs come back to America from China..." Face it folks, nobody's going to be building these in the USA and pricing them below a hundred bucks. Because nobody's going to work in an American headphone factory for 2 bucks an hour... It's that simple. So stock up on whatever turns you on because the party's about to come to a screeching halt. Just saying . . . :)
If you look at the picture, you will see foam ear cushions that are thick and larger than the ear cups. The new ones are small, thin, uncomfortable, and ruin the sound quality. The bass is shallow, the mids are too forward, and the highs have lost their sparkle. I'm really not even sure the earpads are entirely responsible for the change or if the drivers are poor quality now. You will also see a thick cord with an L-shaped plug. The new ones are thin and fragile with a straight plug. I don't think I'll be buying another pair.
As an alternative, I still love the KSC75 and would recommend them unless the same changes have been made.
I really wish Koss would produce a Bluetooth version of these. Many people agree but so far, Koss has not budged. The only BT headphones they make are $150 and not practical for portable use.
Update: I borrowed thicker ear pads from an older pair and they do make a HUGE difference in sound. If you get these with thin ear pads, order some replacements that are thicker like the originals.
** UPDATE: They break very easily. The part that plugs into the laptop just snapped off when I was repositioning my laptop. Very flimsy. I guess I'm back to buying cheap earbuds until I can afford better headphones. Bummer. If you buy these, just beware of this possibility!
Additionally, the blue band stretched out or something, and the headphones became too big, even though they were adjusted to the smallest setting. I only had these for a little over two weeks and this happened, so buy at your own risk. I lowered my original 5 star rating to 3 because of these two issues. I'd still recommend these to anyone looking for a decent pair of inexpensive headphones, however. Just be aware and be very careful with them.
