If not for the invention of headphones, teenagers would still be walking around with gramophones tied to their ears with neckties bearing the image of Errol Flynn. Swashbuckle into the future with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of earbuds, headphones, and more from Koss.com.
In business since 1953, Koss immerses listeners in crisp, clean sounds with its range of full-size, portable, earbud, and wireless headphones, all safeguarded with a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. Full-size headphones, such as the UR50 ($49.99), cover the earlobes with cushy padding and a smooth, isolated sound and the small KEB40 earbuds ($29.99) sustain enough stealth and sound to maintain a disguise while drowning out other Revolutionary War re-enactors. Keep your coif uncluttered with Sportclip stereophones ($9.99–$249.99) such as the KSC35, which clip cleanly to the ears and come with a convenient carrying case, keeping sound in and wet willies out.
