Koss KTXPRO1 Review: Worthy of a 5/5?
Are you one of those who prefer on-the-ear headphones above over-the-head earphones? If yes, we’re sure you must’ve heard about Koss.
Koss is a name that many associate with the best budget on-the-ear comfortable headphones and the KTXPRO1 is one of the latest headphones to make that list.
Our team of experts picked them out from a number of on-ear headphones and came to the conclusion that these were the most comfortable headphones out of the bunch. Wanna know more? Let’s get into our Koss KTXPRO1 review!
Unboxing the Koss KTXPRO1
The Koss KTXPRO1 comes packed inside a very simple looking box, not containing anything ‘extra’. The box contents include the user manual, the Koss KTXPRO1 headphones with a non-detachable 3.5 mm audio cable, and a 3.5 mm jack to an amplifier jack converter.
Design, Structure and Quality
The Koss KTXPRO1 headphones are not over-the-ear headphones, but on-the-ear headphones. Therefore, they are not bulky and heavy but have a very gentle and sleek look to themselves. However, from what our experts gathered on these headphones, they have been designed more for comfort wear than something that’s supposed to be super durable. Yes, we found that the KTXPRO1 headphones were very lightweight but opposed to some other lightweight headphones, not as sturdy.
The headphones come with an adjustable “flexible sling headband” to provide utmost comfort to the user wearing them. They maintain a rather balanced clamping force so that the headphones don’t feel too loose to fall off or too tight to cause discomfort.
They come with a non-detachable 4-foot long audio cable (which we believe is fairly long) with a 3.5 mm jack which makes it compatible with most of the mobile phones, laptops and computers out there. The wire comes with in-line volume control but the absence of an in-line microphone, a feature common with these types of headphones disappointed us.
The ear cups are covered with soft foam cushions to give your ears a lot of comfort even for extended use. To conclude, we could not find ourselves in a position to raise many questions or complaints. The Koss KTXPRO1 headphones, even though not very durable or sturdy, are very comfortable and lightweight, hence easy to have on the go.
This is somewhere where we felt the Koss KTXPRO1 did justice. The signature Koss Titanium Drivers ensure that the users get a rich yet comfortable sound output from the headphones. The sound isn’t anything out of the world but is clear and crisp enough for you to be happy with spending those $18 on the Koss KTXPRO1. There’s a right balance between the highs, mids and lows but the sound is more towards a softer tone than a more powerful one.
Koss KTXPRO1 – Final Words
Well, we’ll repeat it again, Koss KTXPRO1 is a steal. With utmost comfort and a well-balanced sound, the KTXPRO1 should be right at the top of budget on-the-ear headphones, but do not get them if you’re looking for something more long-lasting and rugged.
We hope our Koss KTXPRO1 review helps you understand them better, allowing you to decide if you want to get them or not. Also, if you have any queries, questions or suggestions, please let us know in the comments below!
