It’s slow for a Thursday, which gives me time to drift through the headphone annals here at Audio46, giving consideration to often-overlooked headphones big and small.  And on the small side, the Koss SP330 is easy to dismiss for it’s unsubstantial looks.  But weighing in at a price of $130, how does it sound?

Koss SP330 Review

The SP330 comes in a simple box and with a simple case.  A simple audio-only cable measuring 4.5 feet is also included.

Design wise, the headphone is light and comfortable, with a plastic or rubber build and aluminum extenders.  Despite the small on-ear cup design, they feel like a pocket of air resting gently on my head.

These headphones feature a frequency range of 20-25000 hertz, and a nominal impedance of 32 ohms.

Sound-wise, they offer an accurate and inclusive soundstage that pleasing throughout the frequency range, with plenty of detail in the mids.  Whereas most on-ear headphones in this price range tend to opt for a bass-heavy sound, the Koss SP300 is a breath of fresh air.  Well suited for a wide range of music tastes, I found it only a little bit lacking when playing some electronic music – where some extra bass would be appreciated.  Conversely, I was amazed at how well it handled classical and acoustic stuff, and if you’re looking for a detailed, portable model for long listening sessions, this is the headphone I would recommend.

Compared to the slightly more expensive Ultrasone GO, the Koss SP330 is a bit lighter and just a tad less detailed in the highs and lows.  But the mids have no comparison.  There may also be a little less distortion on the SP330.

If bass is your ace, forget this particular model and consider the cheaper Sennheiser Urbanite headphone (at $99), or the more-expensive, more-premium, more-dynamic Jays U-Jays ($230).
