We've always loved the long-running Koss 'KSC' series; they simply sound astonishingly great for the money and the newest KSC-75 are one of the best clip-ons in the history of the headphone industry. Ideal 'ear-clip' fit designed for applications where a regular headband headphone just won't cut it like extra-active uses, gym and exercise work, or maybe it's just Mom not wanting to muss up her hair during commutes. These little open-back headphones won't fail to astound with an amazingly clear, rich-toned listening experience at a true bargain price.
What We Think:
The sound quality is quite impressive and the wearing comfort is too on the handy-dandy 'clip-on style', highly portable Koss KSC-75 earphones. We've been recommending this long-running KSC line from Koss for nearly 20 years now, and they've always been the very best-sounding things available on the market at the extreme lower tier of the price scale. The Koss KSC-75 clip-ons are perfect for the extra-active listener needing an inexpensive pair of headphones that you won't have to worry about sweating up at the gym, fitting under your sport helmet or using with that groovy tight skullcap. And since the open-back earpieces won't completely seal off the ear, busy city dwellers can maintain needed situational awareness for deftly dodging traffic on their latest multi-wheeled aggro-toy or metropolitan transportation of choice.With silver plastic spaceship earpieces and frost-clear ear clips that look rather like 1950s wire-rims, these headphones -- like most other 'ear-clip' category of headphones -- are rather unique-looking and may perhaps feel a bit weird on a few extra-sensitive earlobes; for some listeners, they'll take a bit of acclimation time to get to feeling unobtrusive. The Koss KSC-75 come with a short mobility-oriented 4ft headphone cable terminated in an 'easy-on-the-jack' 90-degree [right-angled] 1/8' (3.5mm) mini plug ideal for iPod, iPad, iPhone, laptops and mp3 players. That standard Koss limited lifetime warranty is always extra-sweet; if they break, Koss fixes or replaces for life so remember to keep our '100% authorized Koss dealer' HeadRoom purchase receipt just in the rare case you ever need it!
