to be honest these headphones should have nothing to do with the audiophile community.
2 Sound signature?
Yes they have a distinct warm and fuzzy sound signature that's good for music when studying etc.
Everything from mids to lows are just one big fuzzy mess with absolute no resolution and separation.
This is very distinctive when you listen to rock etc, sometimes bass is so muddy it's like a monotone.
These are probably the most comfortable headphones ever made.
They are light but I don't know why Koss markets them with pictures of people commuting because you can't hear any music outside with openback headphones. If you do, you are damaging your hearing and using above average volumes, possibly disturbing others around you.
I don't think they're god-tier, but for the money they are pretty damn amazing IMO.
Amped and not amped pretty much account for their going from decent to really good. I also admit that I am using Yaxi pads with mine.
Even straight from my LG V20, they are not quite in the same ball park as with an amp. Detail is decent but starts to meld together and bass softens up a lot without an amp. YMMV.
It is a step down from the porta pro sound imo.
I have Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 that pushes these fine really you dont need an amp with these because you can do all the tuning they need on the software side and push these no prob... and portably I use this little guy: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H7JKDO0
I have a JDL CMOY and it is an incredible improvement over my V20 by itself. At 60 ohms, it is not terribly hard to push but an amp does control them a lot better.
Yeah with these all you need is nice equalizer, digital or not. :) I dig em.
