The Koss ESP-950 has been around for over 20 years, and yet it holds up when compared to the best headphones available today. This is an electrostatic design, known for it's clear and lifelike presentation. Stax, from Japan, is the leader in electrostatic headphones, but the American-made Koss compares well with the Stax Lambda line, comes with a lifetime warranty, and includes a portable amp for less than the cost of the Stax Lambda models. The overall presentation of ESP-950 is clear, accurate, musical and detailed, with details apparent even at lower listening levels. The bass is slightly rolled-off, but the sound of a string bass (an instrument I used to play) is very accurate. The best sound qualities of this headphone, though, are shown in it's very sweet midrange -- this is a great headphone for vocals. I've owned the Sennheiser HD600 (a well-regarded high-end headphone), as well as the Stax Lambda Pro and I prefer the sound of the Koss ESP-950. Highly recommended!
