Well, he downgraded them seriously for the clips, and I certainly agree with him there--I wasn't able to extract any pleasure from them at all until I found a headband. Berating the reviewer because he didn't know about modding them is hardly fair, too.
I think Koss really misses the boat by not putting a decent suspension on them, since they're nearly useless as they come out of the package. Really, if they aren't wearable, everything else falls into the background. . . and they didn't sound good to me until they were properly positioned on my ears. Remember, the whole love here depends completely on making them into another product, entirely, not the one that Koss ships! I give them 1/10 out of the box, and 6/10 modded.
