"Basically Earbuds, just a little more uncomfortable."

I tend to prefer larger headphones, as earbuds tend to be uncomfortable and don't provide a very wide spectrum of the EQ field (basically, they have no bass). I had heard that these headphones, made by Koss, whose headphones I enjoyed in the past, were better than the average earbud. The price indicated that they were better as well though they aren't unrealistically expensive. I was attempting to go running with an Ipod and I figured I'd require earbuds and I'd already tangled my last pair, so I tried these, and sure enough, I didn't like them too much. When it comes to clarity and quality of sound, I do think they are better than the Ipod earbuds, and in fact, almost any other pair of earbud headphone I've tried. This would make them ideal for running except for the fact that they don't fit comfortably in the ear, or at least not my ears. This is a constant frustration. I'd rather not have to worry about constantly refitting my headphones while I'm running. The inconvenience of these headphones far outweighs their relatively better sound.
I gave them an average review because while they are slightly better, the price is the same. Since earbuds are terrible, they deserve better than a "Bad" rating. I wanted to like them as much as I liked their studio headphones, but this is just Koss trying to reach the earbuds demographic. Rest assured that abuse of these types of headphones are still incredibly bad for your ears and should probably be avoided. However as long as people are image-conscious and don't think it's cool to walk around with huge headphones on, these will still sell. Hopefully they can find a solution that works for everybody soon because the earbuds game is still weak.
