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
Cons: hair ripping, can't be worn around neck, not the most comfortable to wear, cable tends to break, hair gets under the membrane, leaks music
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.

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.
Excerpt: The portable segment of headphones is a very interesting one as we get to see different innovative form factors, features and also some of the loudest and bass heavy sound outputs, naturally, to block out external sounds.
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.
