SOLD: In regard to vintage audio, the cosmetic condition of the had-to-have equipment often outlived the electronics and that’s exactly the case with these Koss headphones. Outside: great. Inside: gone. So to take advantage of their best features, I gave these headphones a second life by repurposing them 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.)

In 1974, Popular Science Magazine asked the question “What can you hear with those four-channel headphones?” and included the Koss K/6LCQ Quadraphones in the article, mentioning that the Koss quads were unique because they stacked front and rear drivers vertically, not horizontally like the competitors. Back then, the selling price was $50.00.

Each Headphone Hook measures approx. 10″ from the very top to the bottom of the hook. Each has a metal keyhole hanger and a reclaimed metal hook attached to the back. These headphones are in very good vintage condition. The original ear pads (also in very good shape) are attached and provide a nice buffer to protect the wall. The channel and volume controls work well. And oh yes, there is a direct link to the original owner — a social security number is inscribed (barely noticeable) in the metal headband of the left earcup.
