SOLD: When Koss introduced these headphones in 1970 “as the first dynamic stereophone to deliver true full frequency, high-fidelity performance”, broadcast and recording studios quickly made them the go-to cans for the professional. But even with such tremendous interest, Koss took them off the market in the 1980s in hopes of driving customers to newer models. They did not go quietly. By 1988, the call for the Pro/4AA was so loud that the company brought it back to its line where it remains today as one of Koss’ more popular items.
That said, when I found a non-working pair of vintage Pro/4AAs, it only seemed right to give them a second life. And after a little re-design, I repurposed this legendary headset as catchall hooks. Use them to hang your favorite ‘working’ headphones; near the front door to catch keys; in the kitchen or powder room for hand towels; in your dressing room for jewelry; or perhaps in your studio or office. (These are not the type of hooks that would accommodate heavy coats.)
Each Headphone Hook measures nearly 10″ from the very top to the bottom of the hook. Each has a reclaimed metal hook and metal keyhole hanger attached to the back. These headphones are in excellent vintage condition, with minimal wear marks. The original oil-filled ear pads have long since dried up and deflated, but still provide a nice buffer to protect the wall on which it hangs.
