Just a couple things to note. These don’t come with the big leather shoulder bag or the adapter box that let’s you power the energizer with C batteries to take these portable like the ESP950 do.

Thanks for the heads up! I was planning on bringing these for a jog at the park with me.

Well you see that was the whole intent of the original ESP950. That is why they come apart the way they do and have the bag. These were originally intended as a portable headphone.

If only that was clearly stated in the description of the product...oh wait.
" A revival of the standard-setting ESP/950 released by Koss in 1990, these headphones bring electrostatic quality into a whole new price bracket. Initially designed for live recording, the ESP/950 came with a large carrying case and a battery pack to power the required energizer: a special amplifier for electrostatic drivers. Made for the modern audiophile’s listening purposes, this version skips the case and battery pack to save on weight, space, and cost. "

It really makes me wonder what the designers were thinking when they made this product.

Well if you think about it, Koss is known for portable cans. The Porta Pro, KSC75, Pro 4AA, etc....
