I want to buy one of these two portable headphones:
the Koss KSC-35 or the KSC-55.
I would have to buy the same price for both.
What would you prefer?
the 35 with Sports-Clip or the 55 with neckholder (???)
Which is more comfortable and which one sounds and fits better?

I have issues with the KSC-55: The few who tried it felt that the KSC-55 presses uncomfortably against the ears - and with all that pressure on the ears, the bass becomes too heavy and a bit muddy. And you can't lessen the ear-pressure on the KSC-55 without breaking the headband - it's entirely of plastic, with very little "give".

May one day invent Bose-cancelling headphones.

I'm afraid he's right. They hurt.

Another beef I have with the 55s is that each ear has a wire. The neckband seems to be there just to piss you off. Koss should have at least taken advantage of the neckband and ran the wire through that so they'd only have one wire in one earpeice.
