Koss PRO4AA
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 3, 2010

The Koss PRO4AA is a full-sized professional-grade stereophone which, according to Koss, is the headphone of choice by broadcast and recording professionals. The stereophone features dynamic elements for a wider-than-average frequency response and a titanium coating on its diaphragms to provide reinforcement, reduce distortion, and improve sound performance. It is designed with closed leatherette ear cushions that coddle the ears, isolate external noise, and enhance bass as well as a steel and rubber headband with padding and adjustable slide bars for a comfortable fit. The PRO4AA has a heavy duty 8 ft coiled cord with a 6.3 mm gold-plated adapter and comes with a lifetime warranty. Compared to Koss PRO3AA stereophone, the PRO4AA has a wider frequency response range and higher impedance. It also has a 6.3mm plug compared to the 3.5mm plug + 6.3mm adapter of the PRO3AA and includes microphone mounting hardware which the PRO3AA lacks. Features/Specs Dynamic driver element Titanium coating on diaphragms 1" oxygen-free copper voice coils Closed leatherette ear cushions Steel and rubber ... PROS: (1) Good Frequency response, but not the best [10 - 25,000 Hz] (2) manufactured with good material, and seems to be really durable. (3) looks classic old style, it is not for anyone... (4) looks epic (5) Good price ... CONS: (1) Can be heavy to ears. (2) Not good for DJ works that you need flexibility.

Muffled sound
3 Star Review   By member Murphy_J - Oct 27, 2005   

Strengths: Not quite sure about this one. They do seem rather heavy though, so you might be able to bludgeon someone to death with them. + Comfortable pads + Durable casing

Weakness: - Muffled sound - Weight - Short cable - Awful for listening to classical music and such.

I purchased these headphones along with Philips HP890 and Sony MDR-CD780, and I must say that they perform rather disappointing. The sound is muffled, as if I'm wearing earplugs, and the headphones show great trouble distinguishing between dull and bright tones. I find the both the HP890's and the CD780's to be far better at delivering crisp, clear sound. Still, they offer decent overall sound, as long as you don't mind the muffled-ness =P.

5 Star Review   By member cfbowers - May 22, 2004   

Strengths: Great sound, good response.

Weakness: a little heavy, but not uncomfortable to wear.

I have owned a set of these for many years, have used these headphones extensively and have had no problem with them. They carry a lifetime repair warranty in case of problems. Their sound is as good as it gets, better than any other headphones I have owned.
