Received these form the last drop, and have been using them on and off for the last few months.
The main weakness these have is the non-conventional fit which will not go down well with the majority who are used to over/on/in-ear styles of wearing headphones and earphones... that and the somewhat flimsy feel of the wires does not give confidence to their durability. You wouldn't want to randomly throw these around.
Other than that, they are very capable phones once you find a comfortable fit for them. The soundstage is amazing, separation is clear, and having them simply sit at the opening of your ear canals allows extended wear periods without physical fatigue on the ears. (Don't jam them into your ear canals, that's what you do for IEMs, these should just sit at the opening. It will take awhile to find a comfortable fit with the tweeter openings angled correctly for the best sound)
All in all, I would call it a valiant attempt by KOSS to address the problem of delivering great sound in a small package, which mostly falls flat because of issues with fit. Despite the marketing, I think buyers quickly realised this is an item for collectors, meant for use in a quiet personal space and not as a daily driver - that's a segment where the high end headphones play, so the fierce competition basically put this out of the race very quickly.
