  • Summary: After my previous skullcandys my parents gave me as a present broke, I went to a store for electronic stuff in general and tested some headphones. The standard Porta Pro as well. The bass was cool, especially because it came out from nowhere.
  • Pros: light, timeless design from the eighties, very unique kind of sound signature, portable, lifelong warranty in the US, long warranty in germany.
  • Cons: tends to break, bass does overpower mids and highs if used at home without any mods, tend to rip out your hair or strangle you just for fun.

  • Summary: Porta Pros simply made the biggest difference for me when listening to music as I have switched from some low-end sony in-ear to them and suddenly when playing the same song music became more rich and colourful and instruments more noticeable soundstage improved and on top of that really nice bass...
  • Pros: really impresive sound quality and good soundstage, value master due to koss lifetime warranty, no need to amp them, really portable

  • Summary: I picked these up when I was living in Belgium when I was looking for a cheap and durable portable headphone, that wasn't in-ear, and I was certainly not disappointed. These headphones have almost the same level of clarity as my Grado SR125i but have a considerably more pronounced bass and are,...
  • Pros: Cheap, great vivid sound
  • Cons: Fold into a circular shape, rather than a flat one. Might pulls some of your hairs, specially if they are curly due to the metal band.

  • Summary: Koss hit a home run with the PortaPros. Love or hate the design, there's no denying the sound quality here: they're the ideal companion for mobile audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts.
  • Pros: The Koss PortaPro Headphones combine a functional design with excellent 3D sound and a low price tag.
  • Cons: Hair gets caught in the collapsible band; some people will dislike the '80s aesthetic.

  • Summary: Klassiker som funnits på marknaden i nästan 30 år. Designförändringarna har endast varit att den lanserats i lite olika färger under åren. Ljudmässigt är den fortfarande något av det bästa som går att få tag på till rimligt pris idag.
