The Original Stereophone
For some, music is a nice distraction. A thing to tap your toes to. For us, music isn’t a thing; it’s a place we go. We are the true believers.
Koss has been bringing people closer to the music they love for more than 50 years. The first Stereophone (SP/3) in the world was created by John C. Koss and Martin Lange in 1958 and since then, Koss’ innovative products have gone from strength to strength with a range now including Full Size Stereophones, On-Ear Stereophones, In-Ear Stereophones, Ear-Clip Stereophones, Wireless Stereophones and Communication Headsets. Now, more than 50 years later….Koss’ creation has become a $2 billion industry, worldwide.
Three principles serve as the foundation for the company’s success: The sound of Koss; focus on fit and breakthrough customer service. What do these principles mean?
The sound of Koss: Musician, John C. Koss created “the sound of Koss” in 1958 and we have stayed true to it to this every day. The sound of Koss brings music back to life. Koss engineers are rigorous in their pursuit of the absolute best sound but it is the human listening experience that sets Koss apart.
Focus on fit: We are obsessed with creating the absolute perfect fit – without it; we can’t get the perfect sound. We strive to create products that offer custom settings for every music lover. Our products couple to the ear – it’s just you and your music.
Breakthrough customer service: Koss was the first to offer Limited Lifetime Warranty in 1989. Our domestic customer support staff is ready to help any listener with any issue. The Koss US factory and warehouse is based in Milwaukee Wisconsin – logistically, Koss has created an onsite inventory system that makes “out-of-stocks” virtually impossible.
The Koss CC01 Custom Fit In-Ear Headphones
Koss CC_01 isolating in-ear headphones feature a unique, custom fit experience. Rotate the dial and the ear cushion expands to provide perfect fitting in-ear headphones with great sound. It’s an entirely new state-of-the-art ergonomic and acoustic design.
Koss In-Ear Headphones are designed to produce a perfect seal. This seal allows the variable matched transducer to directly couple with the eardrum. The direct response system means greater accuracy and efficiency across the entire frequency response range.
The straight, dual-entry 4 foot fabric cord will allow you extensive freedom of movement to ensure that you can position the headphones for optimum listening whilst the zipper clip minimises tangles and ensures secure placement of the cord. Furthermore, the lightweight design enables you to comfortably carry them safely around your neck or in one of the included carrying cases wherever you go.
Featuring a super sensitive frequency range of 15 – 25,000Hz, these Koss CC01 Ear Clip Headphones guarantee you a high-quality audio experience that will leave you anything but disappointed!
This is all backed up by the Koss Stereophones Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The sound is poorly balanced the basses are dull and everything else sounds tinny.
They even seem porly crafted and cheaply.
They are very big, so they are very visible from the outside. One looks funny with them in the ears.
The cable ssems to be fine.
Overall i am dissatified and will return the product. If they would be cheap, I would consider them as beeing fine, but for this price I did expect something much better.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
One thing about these earphones that is a little different is that they are kind of large - not the part that goes in the ear, but the outer part - it is probably twice the size of the V-Moda Vibe and Sennheiser earbuds I already own. However, they do not look freakishly large, and with the adjustable inner part (the part that goes in your ear canal), it is easy to make these snug, but not too tight. The cushions are not the rubber "mushroom cap" style - they are foam cones. I think using foam, combined with the adjustible fit, creates excellent noise isolation. It is the closest I have experienced to full headphone sound isolation in an earphone.
I was also impressed by the thick cloth covered cord with integrated clip, designed to wrap around an MP3 player and protect it when not in use. It is very clever and does not tangle nearly as bad as some other earphones I have. The cable also appears to be MUCH more durable - my v-moda's are already cutting out intermittently due to cord issues.
On to the most important issue: The Sound.
Bottom line, these earphones have the richest sound of any earphones I have used. I did a comparison to my v-moda vibe and $50-ish Sennheisers, and there was no doubt that the Koss earphones were clearly better. I tried bass-heavy songs and quiet acoustic guitar songs, and in each case, the CC-01's brought out details and created a full, lifelike listening experience that I have never heard in an earphone. Just spectacular. I am not sure if it is because of the larger outer part providing more room for a larger driver or what, but it almost sounded like putting my head between two top quality compact speakers when I would put on the Koss earphones. By comparison, the other earphones sounded almost tinny, even though they are quite good for $30 - $50 earphones. Overall, these turned out to be a really pleasant surprise, and I would recommend them to friends without hesitation. As an added bonus, they come with a lifetime guarantee!
I'm really impressed with the noise cancellation - I wear these while mowing the lawn and don't have to adjust the volume at all once the mower starts - normal listening volume still sounds fine.
The earbuds are comfortable and you can adjust the diameter of the ear piece by twisting the knob. I admit I haven't messed with the adjustability much since I got them, but the setting they're on is great - very comfortable.
My only complaint is that they seal so well! Occasionally the cord gets caught on something and yanks the buds out of my ears, which is unpleasant since they're in there so snugly. I guess that's something I have to live with until somebody releases a decent wireless earbud!
Also, I wish they were available in other colors. Red is ok but not my first choice.
Due to the adjustable ear bud, you can customize the fit within reason to get the perfect fit for yourself. The end result is a firm and comfortable fit that provides excellent sound quality. Another great Koss product. Keem 'em coming.
It's still better sound than most other similar headphones, and the seal is good enough to isolate you from your environment. The cloth-covered cord isn't overly long and seems less tangly than plastic cords.
My big criticism would be the price & packaging -- they're good headphones, but the price covers a lot of unnecessary packaging and accessories. The two extra pair of ear tips are nice, the foam-lined oversize cardboard box containing the leather(-ette?) carry case and metal storage tin are silly and superfluous extras. These are really less expensive headphones than the price would indicate.
Sound quality is good and they block out sound really good. Even on low volume, you hardly hear anything other then maby semi truck drive pased you. I like the fack that you can take of the "ruber" to wash them when needed. so the + vs - is whay they for me get 3 Stars.
