5.0 out of 5 stars Koss: the sound you never knew you needed., 8 Oct. 2014
Like all classis Koss products the 3AAs have to be viewed from a purist perspective. Sure most of their full sizers are heavy...try the Pro4/AA - they weigh a straight pound! And, yes, you can get a little sweaty in them after a while. Rhese devices are for folks who don't mind these minor distractions and who need ultimate sound. The 3AAs are bit flimsy and Koss have had some build quality issues over the years but....and its a biggy....nobody else delivers the limitless, shimmering highs, ground-pounding infrabass and warm, intimate mids like Koss. I've done 'em all: Grado, Sennheiser Beyer, Stax, Bose and nothing comes near. It's true that the 3s and 4s will wreck your hearing before they distort so BE CAREFULL! Google for a neat connection box device that allows you to drive them from your speaker outlets because no headphone socket can drive these puppies the way they need to be driven. And then discover Koss Electrostatics.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Pivotal and deeply influencial Music from the Fab 7 !, 21 Nov. 2001
This review is from: II CD US CHICAGO (Audio CD)
Chicago II initially held musicians spellbound by it's sheer tutored talent and production values. It then quickly became apparent to the rest of us that this was a 'must have' in 1970. This was mainly due to the massive impact of "25 or 6 to 4" as a single. It was totally taboo to have horns in a rock band it this time. The boys blew that little chestnut wide open by demonstrating that you don't need a 19-strong big band to envelope your listener in the most involving, intense and shimmering sound-cloud. The songs are utterly brilliant examples of pop culture writing and the horn arrangements put contporaries like Blood, Sweat and Tears to shame. Buy this and learn why your parents know Puff Daddy (or whatever he's called this week) is boring, boring, boring.
