BUZzzzzz - No Thanks!

Pros:Lot's of different jacks to connect to your systems.

Cons:Constant background buzz. Uncomfortable to wear - squeezes the head.

The Bottom Line: NOT Recommended. Constant background Buzz, like a vice on your head.


I have an old set of wireless headphones from Brookstone that have worn out - they never been a problem. I was looking forward to getting a new pair.

Opened the box and found it was missing the DC-male to DC-male cord that is used to charge the headphone's battery.
Called Koss, and they sent one right out. (They did not seem surprised that it was missing.)

Once I finally got it charged up, I found these headphones to be unacceptable for the following reasons:

1. Constant background buzz. No matter how I set the pins to change the frequency, I got the buzz. It did not matter if the volume was set to 1/4 or full blast, if the unit was attached to the DVD, FM, or nothing at all, I still got the buzz. I old wireless headphones never had this problem.

2. Uncomfortable. I have a small head compared to most men. (Hat size 6 3/4) and after 1 hour, these headphones pinching my head would start to give me a headache.

I have other minor complaints - the difficulty of getting the headphones to sit on the stand, etc. but the first problem alone is enough to Not Recommend them.
