Dear Stockholders,

     We are proud to report that Koss Corporation has set a new sales record
for Fiscal Year 1996.

     Sales for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1996 were $36,422,377 compared
to $33,432,344 in 1995.  Net income for the year was $2,360,963 compared to
$2,087,994 one year ago.  Earnings per share were $0.67 in 1996 compared to
$0.58 in fiscal year 1995.

     We experienced a roller-coaster retail year, opening at a peak,
rolling with trepidation through the holidays and climbing to a new sales
record at the close of the fourth quarter.  A surge in sales and orders
during the first quarter was followed by a second quarter sales gain
negatively impacted by a decline in gross margins. Requests for credit and
sharper prices contributed to this margin decline which continued until the
end of the third quarter. The company rebounded with record sales for it's
fourth quarter  increasing earnings more than three times for the same period
last year.

     In Fiscal Year 1996, the successful licensing arrangement with Hagemeyer
was extended to encompass Western Europe. Hagemeyer's line of Koss branded
electronics products have received excellent distribution in retail outlets
throughout North America.

     The new line of telecommunications headsets introduced in January
positions the company to move into several new markets.  The four models of
tele-headsets include two "hands-free" products for use with standard
telephones or cellular phones and two models for computer telephony.  By
expanding stereophone application outside of traditional markets, we believe
that Koss' entry into these markets will play a key role in expanding the
company's' current position as a market leader.

     The beginning of Fiscal Year 1997 marked Koss' entry onto the
information superhighway with the opening of the Koss Web Site at
http://www.koss.com.  We are very excited about this new mode of
communicating with our customers and have already seen an impressive number
of "hits" to the site, many involving product inquiries and catalog requests
as well as general feedback and questions from consumers.  We anticipate that
the Web site will move us closer to the individual consumer, opening a new
path for us to sell direct and to provide greater consumer accessibility to
products with limited retail placement.  Within the next few months, we also
expect to expand services offered at the site, including a dealer locator
service to help consumers find a Koss retailer in their area.

     Currently, Koss' line of available credit is very good and our
plan to repurchase the company's shares from the market will
continue.  We look forward to increased sales in FY 1997 through
the introduction of a number of new models later this year.  We
expect these new introductions to expand our presence in existing
markets as well as provide us entry to other non-traditional
markets.  As always, our primary focus continues to be on our base
stereophone business and we will continue to concentrate on finding
new applications for stereophone use.

     We would like to thank our customers, suppliers, stockholders, and the
entire Koss team for their dedication and hard work over the past year to
ensure the continued success of Koss Corporation.
