I know. You see the word “review” in a post title and you run for the hills. Been there, done that.
But hold up.
I’ll make this one short and to the point.
A few weeks ago, I was sent two sets of Koss headphones to review. For free.
Here’s the “cut to the chase” part – After trying them out on a couple of runs, mowing the lawn and a flight to Utah, I would BUY THESE HEADPHONES WITH MY OWN MONEY. Behind the Lindsay’s List scenes, there are products sent to me that I wouldn’t say that about. Yes, I’m always thankful for the gesture and the free swag, but it’s not often that I consider spending my own money on a review product.
These headphones are that good. The company’s slogan – “Designed FOR women. BY women.” The earbuds are much smaller than any others that I’ve seen and each set comes with three cushion sizes that you can interchange depending on the size of your ear canal (mine are fairly small so I use the smallest set). If you have small ears, you know what I’m talking about when I say that sometimes my ears would ACHE with larger ear pieces – the free ones you get on airplanes are the worst! Not the case with the smaller Koss ear pieces!
While I received two pairs (the FitBuds and the FitClips), I really fell in love with the FitClips, which drape over your ear. I took them on a couple of 5-mile stroller runs and they didn’t budge an inch or fall out of my ear canals.
Something else I must share – Koss has excellent customer service! On the flight out to Salt Lake, someone hit the headphone jack with their leg while it was plugged into my iPhone and completely damaged the connector thingymabob (real word).
Major bummer. I tweeted about it and the reps at Koss were incredibly quick with the following response:
Nice! I love it when companies have your back! Thank you, Koss, for the headphones and for being genuinely nice!
QUESTION: Do you run with music? How often do you purchase things that you see on blog reviews?
The Koss FitBuds and FitClips retail for $29.99 and are worth every penny – go here to purchase your own! In fact, get $5 off at www.koss.com when you use the code: Fit4Life (that also gets free shipping)!
