Koss KSC 55
This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer Koss effective November 2006.
Using the same drivers as the KSC-50, the KSC-55 is an excellent value —- you won't find a better sounding headphone under $20! The behind-the-neck headband design provides a bit more pressure on the ear than the earclips of the KSC-50, which keeps them securely in place in situations where your head gets jostled around, but most listeners also tend to find the earclip grip on the top of the earlobes moderately uncomfortable. Some brute-force adjustments are usually required for truly personalized fitting. Excellent choice for listeners always on the hop or for folks looking for a 'beater' pair of earphones for the gym or portable applications.
The KSC-55 has a rigid plastic 'neckband' that loops behind the head, perfect for keeping your beautiful hair unmussed. They are connected by a 4-foot plastic-wrap cord which is terminated to a 1/8" (3.5mm) mini-plug, attached to one earpiece. They are covered by Koss' super-generous LIFETIME warranty.
