by David Brown

Lock these earbuds up for your own sanity

You want to keep your earbuds in your bag or purse. But you hate having to untangle wires and untie knots every time you go to use them. Koss has solved this annoying problem with the IL200 KTC headphones. When you're done enjoying the fine sound of these earbuds, the earpieces lock together for easy, worry-free storage. These durable metal earbuds will always be ready for your next listening session, at the office, on the go, or in the comfort of your home.

In-line controls for your Apple device

The IL200 KTC also features a three-button in-line remote for use with your iPhone® or iPod®. You can answer calls on your iPhone with one-button convenience, as well as play and pause music, skip tracks and adjust the volume on Apple devices. Available in black or white, these unique headphones make a terrific companion for your iPhone.

Overview: The Koss iL200 KTC in-ear headphones have a unique interlocking design for easy, tangle-free storage. An in-line remote/microphone lets you control your music and phone calls on your smartphone. These noise-isolating in-ear headphones block exterior noise so you can hear your music clearly, without outside interruption.

Interlocking Design: The iL200 KTCs interlocking design allows the earbuds to easily nestle together. This keeps the cables from getting tangled up while they are stored.

Construction: The in-ear headphone enclosures are constructed from a highly-polished machined metal, surrounded by a flexible, soft-touch material. The coating deadens external noise and vibrations, so all you hear is the music.

Koss Touch Control (KTC): The cable on the left earbud features the 3-button Koss Touch Control (KTC), an in-line remote control and microphone. The KTC is "made for iPhone, iPad, and iPod", and lets you control the volume, music playback, and phone call management.

Silicone Tips: The iL200 KTCs come with three sizes of silicone ear tips (small, medium, and large) for a comfortable fit.

Cord: The headphones have a 4' straight cord with a slender 3.5mm straight plug. The small diameter plug design can be easily plugged into recessed headphone jacks or when the smartphone or digital music player is contained in a hard case.

Warranty: The iL200 KTCs are covered by the Koss Stereophones Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Not impressed

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Having used Bose earbuds previously, perhaps I've become a bit spoiled but, I couldn't afford them this time around. These earbuds are not a good subsitution. Sound quality is just ok, but technically poor for the money and they do not stay in your ear. I should have known better than to expect quality from KOSS.
