are they good for gaming?
Soundwise, these are good for the money. and the microphone is fine - but they offer zero isolation. Bear this in mind if you are planning to use them on public transport or in noisy environments. I bought these for the bus, and they don't work for that - no passive noise reduction at all. I have found they are not listenable on a noisy street either. In retrospect I probably should have realised that from the design. Switched to shure 215s with comply tips for commuting - instant privacy! On the flip side - these are good if you need to maintain situational awareness. Anyway - price / performance ratio is great, but if you are planning on using them out and about, be aware that the passive noise reduction is negligible.

Did they finally lighten up the color. Those look much lighter than the ones I've seen.

Not sure. Maybe it's the lighting. Still the best color option for me.
Received these today:

Using on MacBook

1. I have a very small head and headphones are a hit or miss, they looked small so gave it a try. Usually with headphones that fit my small head, it is due to the extreme tension and it squishes my brains out of my nostrils. These very affordable headphones do not give that squish and actually fit my small head very comfortably!

2. I asked in the discussions if the microphone would work on MacBooks and boy does it ever! I have a mid-range priced USB headphone-mic combo that I use for phone and making video tutorials. The Koss mic ridicules the USB set! So clear! Such insane volume for the mic! I was hoping for a half decent mic experience and got a winner!

Definitely worth its money!

Nostrils refers to your nose lol

Yeah.. too tight headphones result in brains being squeezed out of nostrils LOL
These headphones are a great value. Comfortable and fine sound.
Best 20$ I've ever spent on headphones. Sounds great with LG G6 Quad DAC.
By the way not so obvious feature of remote: beside play/pause it could also next/prev.
- double click for next
- hold for prev

I have an LG G6 (No QD in US), and when I hold the button it activates the Android assistant. A triple click skips back, double click skips ahead.

Let me correct my previous. When the Google Play Music app is on my screen a long hold skips back. If I'm on a home screen the assistant launches.
Wondering if there is a solution to the headphones getting the “accessory not supported“ message with an iPhone 7.
just update the phone,
cleaned the port,
and am using an apple certified dongle.
thanks for any help

I've read lots of posts by people who have issues using these and the Massdrop PP-X with "i" devices. Both have the same cable and button/mic. Unfortunately I've not read any solutions that I can recall. I have 4 Koss headphones with the same cable setup and one Koss headphone with a different button/mic and they all work with my LG G6. I think the issue has to do with the wiring, which ring is the ground, and that it's different than Androids. I see some models of other headphones that have specific Android and iPhone versions or come with 2 different cables.

Thanks.
Guess these will just have to sit on the shelf till I switch to Android.
Vs. the Porta Pro:

These are more durable, easy to wear, larger, and have a far more hardy cord.

Also, compared w/ the crappy pair of headphones you receive on an airline, these are much larger and far more comfortable.

IMHO, if you're bald (I'm not so not 100%) these may be more comfortable than the porta pro.

No, for $20 headphones it's not really worth the trouble to go through the RMA process. I found these more comfortable than the porta pros but the porta pros are still my go-to headphones for cheap, light headphones.

I was just curious. I figure by the time you buy a padded envelope, postage, and write your $9 check it's easier to wait for the next drop if you wanted another pair.
