From arrival of the Koss KEB40 I was excited to see what Koss had instore for the KEB40s. Upon the first testing’s of the KEB40 I was intrigued at the creativity Koss had in designing the fit of the earphones. To begin, unlike the traditional earphones, the KEB40 have sires sticking out of the ear, unlike being placed in the earphones. We do enjoy creativity and innovative thinking at The Real Mac Genius.com, but the new style of the earphones does need to be redesigned. The earphones fell out of my ear more than normal, making listening to music a hassle. Aside from the design flaws, the sound quality wins the prize. I was amazed at the clarity and the deep bass built into the headphones, it is not something you expect when you look at the price tag.

Some other things that the Koss KEB40’s come with are additional silicon earpieces for your specific size. Koss even designed the KEB40’s so that they were small and compact and very easy to carry around. My overall thoughts of the Koss KEB40’s is that they are well worth the $29.99 price tag which makes them a great pair of earphones for anyone. Even though the sires may look funny, the amazing sound quality makes all the difference.
