Koss Earbuds Teardown
Background and Identification
Koss is a consumer electronics company that manufactures headphones. The company was founded in 1958 and is headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Koss headphones available today (as of summer 2020) include both over-ear and in-ear models. Koss makes both wireless and corded headphones. In addition to being sold under the Koss name, Koss also produced headphones that were rebranded and sold under the RadioShack label. Koss headphones come at a range of price points. For instance, the QZBuds sell for $99.99, while the Koss KSC35 wireless headphones sell for half the price ($49.99).
Koss headphones housed in this category are in-ear headphones. Popular in-ear Koss headphones include the Koss Plug, which are noise isolating and have memory foam ear cushions.
Koss headphones are largely recognized as being some of the best inexpensive headphones on the market. Koss headphones produced since 1989 come with a lifetime warranty that covers issues from average use.
Koss wireless headphones include earbuds that are linked to each other with a cord but connect to the paired device wirelessly. Koss corded in-ear headphones have two earbuds attached to a cord with a 3.5mm audio jack on the other end. Koss in-ear headphones come in a variety of colors but are most commonly black.
