To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
They do what is required of £5 headphones.. make sound. But don't be surprised, they distinctly lack volume and range, with the latter being fairly obvious. There is no sub-bass to speak of, with a distinct roll-off in the treble.
For this cost you could get a substantially better sounding pair of earphones by JVC or Panasonic (ergo-fit models are a high recommendation). Understandably if you are against the idea of having silicone bullets penetrate your earholes as well as not spending beyond £10, then these are for you!
The head band has far too much strength as over extended periods of use/time, it feels like you got head in a vice. Also the sound quality is only average. (Go for the JVC ones, as they have better sound quality and are far more comfotable to wear but cost a lttle more). Hope this helps.
I love mines. For £4 shipped I wasn't expecting much, but these babies are well built and actually sound decent even for music! I could listen all day long. No buzzing in the drivers like junk headphones. They are not very sensitive so you have to crank the volume up a little more than other headphones. Especially for children, youtube etc these are winners! They weigh nothing and are very comfortable, bravo KOSS! Cons: L and R markings are barely visible! I might paint them white. The colourful versions are double the price, boo
I use these to listen to the radio while working so there's not a huge amount of movement. They're pretty comfy on the ears sponge wise but there's quite a lot of tension on the band so after a while my head feels a bit squished. I have a very small head (I can't wear a christmas cracker hat without it turning into a necklace). The band is adjustable but expanding it doesn't improve the side-way squish.
I was unsure about how these would sit on my ears as the earpads are unusually symmetrical in shape. But they are brilliant. I use them for listening to audio books in bed. They are better than ear buds because when I fall asleep the headphones fall off and dont keep blasting my eardrums as the buds used to and give me earache.
These are amazingly cheap for what they are. Koss is a decent make and the two pairs of phones I bought have lasted heavy use. Adequate sound and Worth getting if you want something you don’t have to worry about
These are great for five pounds. I use then with my iPad 2 and the sound is great at all levels. I've listened to podcasts and music I know well and it all sounds correct. I also think they look nice too - very smart. They don't block sound out at all, but that's good if you don't want to miss the 'phone or doorbell ringing. The cable is about 120cm long. The only real downside is they do press against the ears a little bit, so I adjust them every 15 minutes or so to change the pressure points on my ears, but I am quite sensitive to things pressing on my ears. These would be great for kids with their smaller heads and a tendency to break expensive things!
I like these. This is the second pair I've had. The first lasted for about five years with regular use in the last two-and-a-half. I use them in the gym. They are light and not huge. They don't cut out much of the 'other' noise, which is fine because I'd hate to ignore anybody if they said 'hello'.
I am deaf and I purchased these to help me hear while wearing my hearing aids but the sound is poor and very low they also hurt my ears when wearing them not comfortable at all and poor sound my device is louder when not using them than it is when the earphones are plugged in
