The Koss Headphones are very good for short session sound listening
My only complaint is the ear section is too small. The ears are pushed together when you wear them. It not as comfortable as the last headphones I purchase several years ago.
All in All very good professional jazz, rock blues, country music listening.

I bought these headphones on a few recommendations and the fact that I could get them for 30% off. They sound as I expected them to sound. Koss headphones usually have great sound. I wasn't expecting too much, since these were priced in the lower range. My only complaint is that the headband fits awkwardly. The plastic is really stiff and doesn't hug the top of your head like most full sized headphones do. I bought these over another more expensive Koss model, because I noticed that these have metal joining the speaker ear cup to the headband. The more expensive model that I bought (some time ago) would constantly break. I'm referring to the PRO3AA model. So, basically, the awkward fit means that I'll only use these at my apartment and not out in public. So, if you're only buying these for indoor use, then by all means get them.
Pros: Great sound for the price.
Cons: The headband fits awkwardly.

Very durable, except...
We use these headphones in the computer labs at my school district. (so my experience is based on over 200 of these headphones) They hold up very well to the day to day use (and sometimes, abuse) that elementary age children throw at them. The sound quality is good for the children - so good that sometimes I can hear it across the lab and have to go turn it down for them. :-) I've used them myself and for 50 dollar headphones, they are quite acceptable. (My personal headphones are Bose QC2s, so I have a hard time comparing, given the price differential). :-) The only complaint I have is that unlike their previous versions, the "leatherette" material is quite thin, and once a small tear occurs in it, it peels away in little bits and pieces, helped along, of course, by little hands. Their older version of these headphones had a harder plastic-like leatherette material, and it never cracked, never began to peel like these. The failure of this "leatherette" material is the only thing keeping these from achieving a 5 star rating for this price category.
Pros: Takes a lot of abuse and holds up well
Cons: The cushions
