With Koss headphones, all it takes is one look—and one listen—and you know exactly what you’re getting. In the case of the Drop + Koss KPH40X Utility Headphones, you’re getting exceptional audio quality, uncompromising connectivity, and surplus style. A revamped version of the brand’s popular KPH40 headphones, the KPH40X gets an updated aesthetic with a blacked-out body and colorful, interchangeable red and blue earpads. It’s a look that’s both retro and modern, playful and professional. Style aside, the KPH40X has the same exact sound and feel as the original KPH40, sporting a comfortable, ultra-breathable open-back design with deep bass, expressive mids, and crisp highs. It’s also equipped with its predecessor’s “Utility” feature: a Utility Series cord that allows you to seamlessly switch between 3.5-millimeter, USB-C, and Lightning connections with special Koss cables. With all that functionality, fidelity, and affordability in a brand-new look, the KPH40X is less of an investment and more of a statement, no matter your budget.
