Kde250

Postby Malazuru В» 17.04.2020

London Jjpirance, I JtL 545.

This is a review of the Koss KDE , a rather different earphone that has been produced by Koss for about a decade. They are no longer listed on the current Koss website, but it is not clear that they are discontinued. I have no connection with Koss, nor with Massdrop, other than as a member.

I was curious. Now where is that man in the yellow hat? The larger 20mm transducer is low frequency dominant and ported while the 13mm transducer focuses on mid and upper frequencies in a side firing angle. This combination of transducers allows greater efficiency and accuracy across the entire musical spectrum to levels that exceed audibility. These three clips can be adjusted for height with a special knurled knob on the element case assembly.

Rotating the knurled knob dials in comfort for a perfect fit. This hinge plate allows the listener to modify the attack angle of the transducer as it enters the ear canal improving comfort, isolation and enhancing transparency. The box is, well a box. Everthing is nice and tidy here. No nerds here, right? At last! A picture of the goods. The small round thing with the holes is the part that fits in your ear see below.

And the bigger black area has the woofer. In this shot, I have not yet started to adjust them. The metal hooks are threaded. These are the medium size. The knurled knob moves them up and down by their threads. The metal hooks are able to rotate, and there is an additional articulation visible where the hook holders attach to the drivers.

The first thing you notice about these is that they are an unusual design. In some ways, that can be a warning. Koss seems to be prone to coming out with unusal designs, and these sort of amp up lessons learned with their various clip, porta-pro and stereophone designs. They are two separate unconnected units. The instructions tell you that you should take your time to make sure they fit right. Over the first week or so, I made a number of adjustments, and I will say that having patience and learning how they should feel helps them enormously.

These come with 3 different length bars that when set properly help grip the headphones to the ear and rest against your head. There are two drivers, one of them, when properly inserted rests in your ear and fires forward.

Perhaps it provides nearfield. Once the headphones are set properly in your ear, a knurled tube allows you to adjust the height of the clip bar. It should be adjusted so that it can rest against your head putting enough pressure on the top of your ear to make the drivers fit firmly. The sound of the headphones can be profoundly affected by how you have adjusted them physically.

Because they are not inserted into the ear canal, nor do the seal and cut outside noise, having them improperly positioned will reduce bass. These are not bass-light phones. I found that once you have found the proper adjustment, they can easily be inserted and removed by guiding the metal hook just above the ear and sort of twisting them on.

Not that much harder than wearing glasses. The actual sound is rather surprising. Unlike IEMs, I do not find them to be at all tiring, even if listening for an extended period, or with unassisted iPhone quality on Apple Music. Yet they have surprisingly nice sound, some actual bass, and very good soundstage. I do think that they suffer from a slight peak in the treble, probably about hz. The build quality is very good, although the cables are perhaps a bit fragile looking.

This session included a few breaks and some fiddling around getting the KDEs adjusted. Each time I got closer to a good adjustment, there was not only more comfort and a less loose fit in the ear, but an improvement in sound. Yes, you will be rewarded, but is it enough? While bass is the obvious change, dialing in the proper fit and direction of the front-firing drivers will also smooth the treble and improve soundstage.

I did not use EQ listening to RP, and did not feel that it was needed. Surprisingly well balanced. Can hear the movement of the piano pedal mechanism clearly, especially at the start of the piece. This piece features a string bass doing a continuo, and it plays with authority. After my third or fourth go-though of this piece, I realized that I was not suffering ear fatigue as I frequently do with IEMs.

When the second piece came on, Villalobos Bachianas Brasileiras No. More telling for me was the third track, by Torroba. Sonatina in A Major I know this piece because its one my Mother played frequently, in a classical guitar arrangement. I believe it was something she did for a recital for her teachers at the Kansas City Conservatory. The guitar was spot on, but there was still a bit of spike in that upper treble.

The resolution seems very upper mid-fi, not something I expected from this style of earphone. Despite the hot treble, finger sounds on the classical guitar strings were a bit muted, compared with what I expect live. Of course, that can also be very musician-dependent. I tweaked the EQ down to -4 db at hz, and the sound improved. The electronic bass is very clean. Drums are crisp. Add still more volume, and the percussion really comes into its own.

Brushes on cymbal are very good. Drums sound much less electronic. The occasional bass drum is well resolved. Strings sound like strings, you can hear fingers on guitar strings, this is as good as it got for MJ. General info: this is the same quality and audio chain. This is fun. The creaking of the door is even more overdone. There evil in the dark is voodoo-zombiefied. The KDEs are very happy with the triangle -like sounds.

I suspect they may be electronic, but the sure sound like real percussion. There are more voices in this version, and they all are very clear and natural sounding. Of course bass sounds like the solid reggae bass you expect. The limitation of the KDE is shown. Cranking the volume lets you hear more bass, but at the expense of the treble being a bit shrill. Billie Jean — what can you say? The vocal is excellent, and the strength of the material shows through.

The slow, lazy, reggae rhythm works for the vocal, but all the rest of this song is musically thinner. The KDEs, and probably any headphone would tell you this is best left for some late-night dance, when the alcohol and smoke and sex have numbed critical sense. Cracking write up. I enjoyed it greatly. They certainly are a very strange design.

Especially with the metal around ear arms, for want of a better description. They seem to have sold well over the years. Thank you. Once you get them dialed in, they are not at all uncomfortable. Better than an IEM for me. There is something vaguely disturbing about that ear. Perhaps the lack of hair extensions. Photoshop anyone? Haha nice one. Grrreat review pennstac! I got mine because of the good price and curiosity.

Yet they still are pretty quiet for others in the room. Yesterday, I tried them using the Schiit Loki, and was able to run them quietly with a loudness type contour, and louder with a slight reduction in treble. I was impressed at the sound compared to cheap IEMs.

The resolution seems very upper mid-fi, not something I expected from this style of earphone. There are three pairs of clips bundled with the earphones, each of a different size to fit kde250 ear sizes. The soundstage is unusual; when I haven't listened to it for awhile, it kde250 okay to the sides and in the front, but it confunkshun loves train almost no vertical element at all.

There are two drivers, clack the rattlebag of them, when properly inserted rests in your ear and fires forward. As far as comfort goes, one kde25 needs to use the correct sized ear clips for them to be comfortable. Third, upper-bass is well balanced, while mid-bass is somewhat more lightly balanced, and low kde250 is recessed kde250 still. Not that much harder than wearing glasses.

As there are no felt covers for the earphones, they can be a little uncomfortable over a period of time. I'd classify kde250 as an "open" earphone, but it's much more isolating than most ode250 earphones or earbuds. I kde250 decide if this is the best mid-fi earphone rash chemical made, or a respectably average TOTL 'phone.

For earphones priced up the order, we expected better kde250 cables. Yes, you will be rewarded, but is it enough? Trance and Dubstep scuba diving best sound very off, because of the lack of the deep bass. Per Koss: " The larger 20 mm transducer is low frequency dominant and ported, while the 13 kde250 transducer focuses on mid and upper frequencies in a side-firing angle. The occasional bass drum is well resolved.

If you take the general sound kde250 of the PortaPro and refine it, fixing the PP's limitations and compromises, bringing detail and clarity up to impressive levels, you would have the KDE Kd250 piece features a kde250 bass doing a continuo, and it plays with authority.
