Great sound, but....

  • Excerpt: Wonderful sound, but the wire will break at the connector after a few months. I've been through three pairs of these and they all had the same fate. The wire at the connector gives way, the right channel goes out, there's nothing you can do. Perfect headphones except for this fatal flaw.
  • Pros: Comfortable
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Summary: The PortaPro is a typical consumer level headphones. The sonics leave much to be desired from an audiophile standpoint. Where they shine is portability due to their light weight, and the fact they're easily driven. They are relatively decent headphones in themselves.

Great sounding, but the build quality is abysmal

  • Summary: I've had Koss Porta Pros before and they're absolutely wonderful for the price, sound-wise, but they've generally only lasted about a year and a half at most. However, for the amount you pay this is not a bad return. I decided to get some of the "On Fire" versions because I really love the "1980s ferrari" style of them. And they're even nicer looking in person, and sound just as great as the regular Porta Pros.

The product is extremely flimsy

  • Summary: I have bought four (4) of these now and the last one was the last straw!. Whereas the headphones gives very good sound from your music, the product is so flimsy that it makes it pointless buying these. The four I have bought last just beyond the warranty and then you can only hear from one ear. This is always the case!. I just can't recommend these for anybody. Save up some more money and buy something else.... definitely not these!!

Great sound, disappointing design

  • Summary: I really tried to like these headphones. I really, really did. I gave them so many chances to win me over, but after several weeks of attempts, they were relegated to their pouch beside my bed, where they are now gathering dust. I got them as a special treat for myself to enjoy better sound quality while watching movies on my laptop. (They have suffered no wear-and-tear, so this review is about their usability rather than longevity.

Great sound, poor quality

  • Summary: When I first read the reviews of these headphones, I was skeptical. The low price could not possibly equate to a good sound. I bought a pair and was amazed by the performance, especially with a laptop. The volume was more than acceptable and the sound quality was all that was promised. Unfortunately, there is a weak spot. The cable guard on the jack plug is poorly designed and the normal flexing of the cable caused a failure - the headphones were junk at 6 months.

  • Excerpt: Frankly ... not the ecstasy ... Lightweight for the weight, the portable cot ... OK then! For his ... there is low for a headphone, the upper ... fishing but too young medium, the sudden lack of balance and everything is loud and aggressive ... Trs right to change the villains of his iPod headphones...
