Great sound, Poor durability

Frank H., Newegg
12 May 2012
  • Summary: I want to love it, I really do. They're great headphones except for the blasted wire... I hope others have better luck then me.
  • Pros: -Amazing sound quality. -Nice look. -Very comfortable. -Nice lifetime warranty (see cons below).
  • Cons: Well, I'm not going to lie - these have awesome sound quality. Of the best I've ever used. But that doesn't count for much if they're constantly breaking. I've gone through three of these headphones, and I've encountered the same problem with all 3. The wire/cable will cause the sound to cut out. For the first pair, sound would only emit if I angled the wire connected to the 3.5mm jack in a certain direction. The second pair had the exact same problem. The third pair,...

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.

Sounds good, but frustrates

Mr. Jt Clulow, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: These headphones sound good, are light and portable However, I've returned too many pairs of these - they are flimsy, so liable to snapping. The cable is poorly constructed at the jack end so one headphone will inevitably be unusable.

Great sounding, but the build quality is abysmal

Sean, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • 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

L. Mcpherson, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • 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!!
