A phenomenal find! Seldom do I learn the back story of the items that I repurpose, but this time, I hit the jackpot. These vintage headphones have the original box, the original paperwork AND the original receipt dated 2-1-76. From the warranty card (that was filled out but never mailed), we also know that these headphones were purchased in Colorado by a 37 year old female. Imagine giving these as a gift and being able to use the original box as the gift box. Or if you're keeping them for yourself, frame up the receipt or the brochure (featuring a picture of Doc Severinsen and his daughter Nancy) to hang above the hooks.

That said, when I found that these Koss Pro/4AAs were not working properly, 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.)

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. The cans I have repurposed are the originals.

Each Headphone Hook measures approx. 9" 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 excellent vintage condition, with virtually no wear marks. The original ear pads are attached and provide a nice buffer to protect the wall.

The headphone hangers are sold as a pair and the price includes the original box and all of the original paperwork.

The headphones will be shipped to the U.S. 48 via USPS and they will be insured.

I am happy to ship outside the U.S. Please convo for quote.

[Please note that I work with authentic, used, vintage pieces, not reproductions. Although I strive to use pieces that are true to their original condition, there may be minimal wear marks or factory imperfections, especially on pieces that were never meant to be seen, such as speaker parts.]
