How's the Koss KSC75?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi folks...
I realized that for walking / running the IEMs aren't that comfy. I saw that the Koss KSC75 are highly recommended for running.
I found them at 27.97$ shipped from eBay, worth it? (sealed in original box)
BTW, I know it's a bit pricey but it was the only seller that was willing shipping to Israel. (Here the KSC75 costs 50$ before shipping)

Thank you

Go for it. They're worth $28.

They were all the rage a year ago. I had a pair, but couldn't handle the ear clip design. They sound great for the price, though.

Okay..
I'll think I'll buy them.
I'll make me a paypal account and buy them :P
Worst case scenario I give them to my mother and they they're a birthday present (haha :P)

I wouldn't go that far but they are great headphones for sure.

I like the Koss though the earclips don't work for me. I can't recommend them for running as my ears already have a hard time keeping them on :lol:

Got any other suggestions for running?

I haven't tried it and have read some reviews saying they fall out but the Yuin earbuds might be a option worth looking at.

As far as bang for the buck, they're excellent. Very good sound quality for a $30 headphone. I got mine for about $15-20 a year or two ago and they are running strong. They don't look very cool, in my opinion, but I still walk the dog in them most days. Mainly I use them around the house, especially to fall asleep in.

The clips hang on to my ears pretty tightly but comfortably. As far as running goes, they stay in place pretty well, but I have only jogged in them, not sprinted.

Mine have just arrived in a week from San Fran to England (very impressive) and when trying to attach them to my ear, both fell off the clip. I had a cheap PC headset lying around with big comfy leather pads and took them and the headband off. I might not be able to get the headband to fit, but I can comfortably hold them to my head.



Do these need much burn-in? They sound very good already after about a minutes listen. Will give them the proper treatment tonight.

I find the KSC75 can sound excellent with the right player and amp.
On my Millet hybrid, they sound great, and also out of my Recievers headphone jack. Sometimes they make me wonder why i spent money on any other headphones. They sound tighter with a Cat5 recable to me.
You can sometimes find them really cheap online also, like under $15usd

The same thing happened to me when I tried to put on my KSC75s for the first time. Fortunately, the clips weren't broken, and they snapped right back on.
Cool pad mod, by the way!

Back on topic: the KSC75s are great!

The clips just snap on and off, but it you need a headband then get this one from parts-express.com for $1.99 + shipping: Parts Express:Mini Headphones

The cheap earpieces snap/click off, and the KSC-75 (and KSC-35) earpieces snap right onto the headband.
