Default Realistic Custom Pro's

I got this at a thrift store a few months back. Koss Realistic Custom Pro's.
Very nice and clean. The vinyl muffs are still spongy, and the coverings are like new. the plastic cans are a tan color, the muffs and rubber head um "strap" are chocolate brown. The framework is stainless steel.

For listening I knew they'd be good, but I was still suprised:
the mid range is nice, and the bass has nice depth. No distortion at high volume like the paper below says! I just found these papers on a site.

First time talking about earphones. Thanks, just curious about who else has these, and what anybody thinks of the model. I'm happy with them, first decent pair of earphones I ever owned.

Koss makes some nice cans. I have a pair of Koss pro4AA phones that I bought from Tha Shack...Koss still has replacement parts for them. I first heard them back in the 70's still love em.

I'd like to find a set of the RS phones made by Stax.
