From an audio pioneer that’s been in the business since 1958, these earphones look like nothing else on the market, featuring a retrofuturistic metal design that’s entirely adjustable and entirely cool Read More

Normally a Koss fan, but don't care for the fit at all and the sound is just OK.
Putting a contour on the metal supports helped a bit, but they still seem to flop around a lot. I will mess with them some more, but first impression is not good.

Interesting technology, not an IEM, I know why there aren't a lot of phones like this.
I did a pretty extensive review of these here https://forum.headphones.com/t/koss-kde-250/2800?u=pennstac Worth every penny of the Drop price. Requires time to find the right fit. If you don't have the right fit, you don't get good sound. Not for activities.

I personally find these to be pretty amazing. But im not to sure who they are made for. These are definitely sit back and relax headphones. They benefit greatly by being connected to an amp. But these falter hard in portability. So first the sound. It has amazing sound. The highs are pretty strong with a decent bass. You can feel the separation of the 2 drivers and their size is definitely to your benefit. But the mids feel a bit lacking. Because of this, you will often find yourself bumping up the volume and then being assaulted by what is honestly crisp if maybe a bit harsh highs. However, you simply are never going to find and IEM, if you can call it that, that is this open with a decently wide sound stage. Then we come back to whats not really good about the headphones. They lack any real semblance of portability. While the case that comes with it is pretty amazing, its a bit bulky, as are the headphones themselves. There is absolutely no isolation with these headphones so wearing them on a plane or train is not going to be a fun time. And because you have to have the headphones on just right to get the good sound, wearing these while exercising or even doing chores is pretty bad as they will move or fall out. And if you are constantly adjusting them, the hard plastic can really rub your ears the wrong way. In short, these are meant to be something you keep at your desk. That you pull out and have a relaxing listen to in a quiet room. They can also be good in an office environment since they leak very little noise despite being very open, and otherwise dont stand out to sharply. And they arent to bad for gaming either.

Confusing to find a good fit, still haven’t. The metal ear wrap is odd and uncomfortable

Pretty cool
Strong 3/5. Good enough for the drop price, but I'd have a fit if I paid ev for these. Sound is punchy with great space and amazing stereo imaging, good bass and highs WHEN FIT PROPERLY, which is pretty damn hard ngl.

Great aesthetics, nice sound.
These are stylish earphones, and are a bit complicated to understand and move in such a way that they're comfortable, but it's really possible, and doesn't dissapoint once you get it. Good bass, clear sound, and open enough to hear yourself and others in a working environment.

I found them ok to use and nice the way the sound actually works but not very comfortable on my ear shape due to hard edges worst part is the flimsy weak cheap wires . no way would anyone pay 250..but 60 YES

You're definitely right about the edges. If I could give Koss one recommendation would be to round them out and/or cover them with silicone.

Do take some time to get the correct fit. The sound quality on these are great when you fit them properly; otherwise you're liable to run into muddiness in the sound quality and general lack of clarity. When adjusted right, these are wonderful, but the fact that getting a decent fit for these consistently is quite arduous compared to your standard IEM / headphones means I had to knock off a star.
