  • Summary: So, 35.00, 40.00? What do you get? Very good sound, outstanding comfort, a lifetime warranty. It's a warm sound. Plenty of bass, not too much IMO, significantly rolled off treble. Smooth midrange, not overly present or recessed.
  • Pros: "Listenability", Warmth, Soundstage, Lack of Irritants
  • Cons: Treble Roll Off, "Fold" into a round rather than flat shape

  • Summary: What can be said about these headphones that has not already been said in the 25+ years they have been in production? Well, my girlfriend thinks they look silly... And that for some odd reason makes me love them more. Out of few phones I currently own, I always find myself reaching for these.
  • Pros: Bass, Comfort, Sound
  • Cons: Hair Ripping, Short Cord

  • Summary: I got a pair of Portapros last month, along with a Sansa Clip+ 4GB, these headphones sound really, really good for $40, especially with an EQ'd Clip+, and I had UR40s, which are also great bang-for-the-buck headphones, sound great, comfortable as can be, however they're not as portable as the...
  • Pros: Sound quality, comfort, design, aesthetics, design hasn't changed since '84, uses KSC35 drivers, just in blue instead of black.
  • Cons: May be considered to be dorky and ugly by the Beats, Soul, Skullcandy, and Bose crowd.

  • Summary: My third set of these classics due to the weak speaker cable connection to the drivers which breaks if you just think about it! Koss should have addressed this long ago by adapting the, IMHO, much more substantial cable it uses on its extension cable w/volume control. It is not much heavier.
  • Pros: Surprisingly well balanced SQ for the price but it needs an amp to really sing.
  • Cons: Speaker cables extremely fragile, especially at connection with drivers. (Sennheiser PX's have same fragility as well).Needs amp to tame the bass.

  • Summary: This is my first 8 hours of my portapros impression (on a intercity bus, in less than ideal environment for an open can. EDIT 1: this was on the day of purchase). First thing that stands out: separation of a song's different elements. Made me hear more, yet still sounds fun and engaging.
  • Pros: Affordable for the sound quality; foldable into a really compact size
  • Cons: The cloth cable has a tendency to twist while folding the Pro; the open design is not good for noisy/very quiet environs

  • Summary: The following review is based only on the trivial amount of money one must put forward for a pair of these headphones. I won't compare these to my AKG, Grado or Senns cans because it's just a different market. (bought in UK, hence the low price compared to the U.S.) Design is amazing.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: Nothing at this price

  • Pros: Besonders auffällig wirken darüber hinaus die beiden ausgelagerten Zusatzpolster, die über den beiden Ohrmuscheln liegen. Sie tragen in Kombination mit dem geringen Gewicht von ungefähr 60 g zu einem hohen Tragekomfort bei. Dieser ist auch den unteren Bügelelementen zu Danken, die sich in drei ve...
