Usually when you buy a product, you’re only buying one. Massdrop is a site that buys in bulk, which means that the cost of an individual item drops significantly. Users vote on which products they want to buy in bulk next and that results in some pretty sweet deals. Like the KDE250 headphones from Koss which you can get for the discounted price of $99.
Koss is one of those legacy audio companies that have been making products for decades. If you don’t want over-ears, have trouble keeping earbuds in your ears, and don’t find IEMs all that comfortable, the KDE250 offers a nice compromise. You can choose between different sized clips to hook these over your ears and aim the ‘buds in whatever position is most comfortable for you. They feature dual dynamic drivers that split the frequency responsibilities. A single dynamic 20mm driver handles the low end while another 13mm one takes care of the mids and the highs.
Besides the open sound, these also have a unique design. Just like the Porta Pros that the company is so known for, the KDE250’s look like they came straight out of an ‘80s sci-fi movie (and I mean that in the best way possible). If you’re looking for good sound in a not-so-common form factor, make sure to grab a pair of these while they’re still available. There’s 7 days remaining at the time of this post and you can expect to get yours by February 21st.
