The Koss PRO DJ 200 is similar to its less expensive PRO DJ 100 brethren model but features detachable cables with two cords provided: one 8ft coiled headphone audio cord and a shorter 4ft mic'd cord for Apple iPhone / iPad telecommunication + player control. Like true club DJ or professional-use headphones, pivoting earcups on the DJ 200 can easily rotate away for 'one-ear' house sound monitoring. Deep bass response with clear textural extension into the midranges + upper highs makes for a very fun, engaging music experience so we recommend these headphones not only for club and studio audio work but also for supreme personal or travel listening. Built-in switch allows either mono or stereo operation.
What We Think:
We'll keep arguing to no one in particular that Koss should take the 'DJ' designation off these headphones -- we think it tends to steer 'non-DJ' music lovers away from what are potentially perfect headphones for great personal listening of any stripe. Outside the club, the Koss PRO DJ 200 has the correct ingredients for awesome portable use from iPhone and iPad: a built-in microphone + 3-button Apple device controller; superb bass texture and punch with excellent low-end control and no 'lost-in-space' hollowness, plus a folding / collapsible design for ease of transit.
