Anyone tried the Koss UR-55? - Page 3

post #31 of 38

I tried them on in Best Buy. I was unimpressed by the sound. It wasn't bad but there wasn't anything about that made me want more time with them.

My Best Buy doesn't have them on display, so I'd like to ask. Did they have them setup so you could plug your own DAP into them, or was it a store demo board, like the sony's/skullcandy's/Dre Solo's? If it was the latter, I doubt they'd sound the same out of your own portable player.

Well, it was plugged into a player already but you could unplug it. I did so and used it with my Droid. Once again, not impressed.

I'm guessing you're not a fan of the Porta Pro's either? They do seem to share the Koss house sound. I must be a sucker for it.

Hmm, I have never tried them. I have never really got the chance. But the killer to the UR55 is that the pair I tried on was bent so one of the earpads went on your ears and the other was tilted in a another direction, I assume this was the wear and tear of a demo model.

Hey all! I'm thinking of going to Best Buy and pulling the trigger on one of these UR55's. I'm wondering - how much sound leakage is there from these? I looked at it at the store and it has foam as opposed to pleather - it seems to be "sort of" an open design... or is it?

 

Essentially, I'd be using these at work. Everyone has headphones, and we're in cubicles and not right on top of each other... just not sure if I need something more sealed than these.

 

Thanks!

They are definitely open back & semi-open front. Normal volume may not be much of an issue but any higher than 80-85db to your ears others will easily hear you even in a relatively noisy office environment. These are quite sensitive & will play quite loudly even from most android phones. Generally I find Android phones to be quite volume limited. These are the loudest earphones I've tried with android phones so far.
