Wait their international shipping is scaled to the item cost, and not based on weight? That's...bizarre.
There is a distributor here and there are some retail stores that sell Koss products the choice are however limited. I think more people are familiar to even Skullcandy brand than the brand Koss. They should definitely do better in their channel coverage.
Even in the US has relatively little mainstream presence - some of their models are sold at major retailers but they tend to be relegated to the bottom shelf in the back corner kind of thing; compared to brands like Skullcandy that have prominent endcaps and lots of marketing. Koss is just kind of a bizarre company - they do generate marketing material (unlike Grado or STAX, for example), but they don't seem to do anything with it.
