Koss is a company that excels in inexpensive headphones, most notably the UR21 or the Porta Pros. Unfortunately, UR29 is a whole different story. They do look cool, but their sound quality is actually horrid. They lack in bass tones, have "hilly" mids, and sounded awfully bright and lacking in any sort of detail. Very inaccurate sounding headphones. Otherwise, they do look decent, and they are comfortable, but those attributes only count if you would like to spend $30 on something that is a poser to headphones even in this price range. Even the less expensive Koss UR21 or Sennheiser HD202s completely blow these away in terms of sound quality.
