Koss ESP/950 Electrostatic Headphones...

Wow! These things are very nice, indeed!

I ordered a pair of Koss ESP/950 Electrostatic Headphones from Amazon and they just arrived today. I must say that I'm impressed. I haven't used electrostatic headphones in years and I guess I'd forgotten how accurate and transparent they are.

I've been using Grado headphones primarily for recording vinyl records and I just decided to buy a better pair for some serious listening. I didn't want to put out the money for a pair of Stax and I'm really glad I didn't because these Koss electrostatic headphones are really something. I honestly can't imagine how spending more money can get better sound quality. I am totally impressed by the sound from these Koss headphones, especially considering their reasonable price. They cost a total of $681.57 from Amazon including tax and shipping. I don't think you can beat the cost-to-performance ratio of these headphones.

In the November issue of Stereophile I read a short review of the Koss ESP/950 headphones and the reviewer stated that they were weak in the bass. I don't feel they're weak in the bass at all and I'm a person who likes deep bass. I have a pair of Rythmik subwoofers in my speaker system and I think these Koss electrostatics produce equivalent bass to my speakers. In fact, I think they are very well balanced across the entire frequency spectrum as well as exceptionally detailed and transparent. In my opinion these are a best buy!
