These things are junk. I bought them last go-around since I needed a cheap pair and they were only $6. Somehow I purchased two pairs (at least it was during the good 'ol days of $5 + all day free shipping).

Needless to say they are good enough for paperweights. The sound quality is more like the cackling of a witch and it isn't even worth my $$ to send them back to Koss to have warrantied.

Pretty disappointing; oh well - you get what you pay for. At $2 maybe it is worth taking a chance to get a better pair but unlikely.

I bought a Pair of these Last Year (Dec 13),
[Koss HD/6 Amplified Speakers]
when they were like $16 a pair.
It has everything Included except the Audio Cable. (Even though it stated in the Add that it included that).
I write WOOT about it (But No reply)
I Must Say they sound Pretty Good, They can be very Loud... thats what I like about them.

Two bucks is like, free. I've noticed a lot of the desktop computers come with really crap little USB powered speakers lately. And the LED computer monitors often don't have built in speakers. So these aren't going to impress anyone with their sound quality, but they're cheaper than the batteries you'll need for them. If you're the type that saves old power adapters from electronic accessories (I am), you can probably find one that will power these and never mind the batteries.

Wow! It's way back Wednesday. I had some of these Koss Speakers back in 1990. They came free with my portable CD player.

Knowledge is power, but only if you use it.

I just got 3 sets of the Koss HD/50 speakers, and they came with a total of 7 audio cables. Also came with AC adapters, which the write-up said they DON'T have.

They work OK for me.

Got my order yesterday, but I hadn't opened them yet...I ordered TWO sets of the HD/6 and one HD/50...hoping I would end up with two power cords.

Turns out the box that should have contained the two HD/6 sets...was big enough to contain them, but only had ONE set inside. The box had arrived damaged and the brown paper tape was torn open and replaced (sloppily) with clear packing tape. I called UPS to report a stolem item, then I contacted Woot per UPS's instruction.

Woot responds: "Sorry about that. It appears we were unable to fulfill both sets of HD/6 speakers. I issued a $2 refund back to your original payment method. Sorry for any inconvenience."

Why wasn't I informed BEFORE the order shipped out?? and WHY was it still shipped in a box large enough for two pairs of speakers? (The third came in a separate box--which COULD have been in the box with the other pair, if they had thought about this.) Seems to me they ripped open my box to get the item back out, then shipped it looking like it had been thru he** and back, then 'bought me off' with telling me they could not fulfill that item.

I call shenanigans. Thumbsdown Woot. You should have informed me not to expect what I paid for.

EDIT: So after opening the boxes- The HD/6 has NO A/C adapter which was supposed to be included, and one speaker is dented/one has a faulty on/off button... the HD/50 set has the stereo cords, but No adapter, and are in perfect/new condition.

My peeps are always asking me for speakers, so I jumped on this: three of the HD/50s, two of the SX/30s. The HDs arrived so fast I had no idea what was in the box (it has Amazon tape on it), so kudos for quick shipping!

Unfortunately, they're DOA. They came with power adapters - which the listing said they didn't - which was a pleasant surprise until I tried to plug 'em in and turn 'em on. No light from the LED, no sund from the speakers. I tested the power supplies with a multimeter, and they're dead as the dodo, so... not such a pleasant surprise after all.

I bought some C cells and popped 'em in, and still: no light, no sound. I've only opened two sets so far, but I'm not feeling the joy here.
