Koss UR40
I use it for 4 years.
I tried many others that I made.
Despite the breakage of the cable I repaired because every time that I bought did not support the comparison (Philips, Sony, JVC, etc.. Prices range from 65 to 95 €).
The less this is the fragility of the cable and that it is not removable.
As against unbeatable quality / price price I paid report.
Even more expensive I do it again the same choice.

I use it mainly to watch TV. I have a SONY LED flat screen and the sound is poor especially for movie dialogue.
With headphones the sound details are present and clear.
Fits perfectly to the ears without compressing like most other headphones I've tried. Very light, comfortable I support several hours without problem. Ears a little warm after only 2 or 3 hours.
One of the best headphones I've tested.

No detachable connectors. Cable a little short, I must use an extension cord even when I use it with my desktop PC.
Son of fragile cable, I have already done two times to change them.
4 years no quality degradation. I just compare with JVC HA-S600 and there is no photo. THE KOSS UR40 is much better and more comfortable.

Top quality for me. Restitution sound details (inaudible details without headphone).
Balanced without too much bass (I do not like when the bass is pushed). Good mediums.
Noise level more than adequate. On some devices must be mounted her but I think it's a compatibility problem of impedance.
But proper insulation means external noise without it being a nuisance.
To my knowledge the people outside can not hear sounds headphone.

How long you use it?

5 years

What is so special that you love the most, least?

The sound quality is very good, very linear. For against the cable is too short.

Did you tried many other models before buying it?


How would you rate the quality / price?


With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes, but with a longer cable.

Koss UR40
This headset is pretty good for its price
we can find a really cheap (depending on the stores ...)
it offers a very good record in the bass, a little less when you go up top
in the treble.
It is regrettable frankly a cable too short.
Despite some defects the Koss UR-40 is a must, especially in this price range.
