I have had a number of these headphones from Apple as I have owned 2 older ipods and 2 years ago I purchased an iPhone 4. More recently we acquired another set when I purchased my daughter an iPod Touch 4g for her birthday. You get these headphones free with Apple products.
The saying - you get what you pay for - fits how I feel about these headphones perfectly... They are free - and absolutly horrible!
My favourite bits
They are free with Apple products that you buy
They do actually look attractive
Very small and compact for easy storage
Very light which make them a favourite to transport easily
********** My least favourite bits
They are by far the most uncomfortable headphones in the word
If my daughter wants to use them she can't as they don't fit her ears (not suitable for kids)
Broken very easily through no fault of your own (This has happened to two of my sets)
Sound can come out crackley and distorted
********** My verdict
Overall due to the problems I have noted I can only give it 2 stars due to the fact that they are light, easily transportable and look attractive. Everything else I hate. 2 stars from me. If Apple are selling expensive products like their phones, ipods and ipads I think they should be putting a bit more effort into the design of their free headphones. I can understand they are free and you shouldn't really be bothered but when you pay as much as you are for Apple products
Koss IL200 KTC interlocking in-ear headphones features a truly original design coupled ... more
with a unique material to form a perfect harmony. The interlocking in-ear headphones utilises an ingenious patented design for easy on-the-go storage without sacrificing richly delivered audio delivered through performance tuned 9 mm drivers. Koss Touch Control (KTC) remote and microphone technology, made for iPhone, iPad and iPod, gives listeners more control in fewer steps. Listeners are now able to stay connected, shuffle songs and adjust the volume with the simple flick of a switch. The frame of the new interlocking in-ear headphones is constructed from highly polished metal and surrounded by flexible, soft-touch material. This innovative material doubles as a soundproofing coat, intended to deaden any unwanted distractions, that allows the listener's focus to remain on the crystal clean highs and crisp lows - while staying inside the music they love. The interlocking design allows the two in-ear headphones to easily nestle together for simple, tangle-free storage. With its durable metal structure the IL200 KTC in-ear headphones will eliminate the stress of trying to undo the impossible knots that always seem to form when storing in-ear headphones or earbuds. Koss has created the perfect harmony between form and function, so that all you have to worry about is the music. Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling
