  • Excerpt: Use for listening to music on laptop while studying. If you want something to work out in or wear places in public where noisy not a great idea. If you want great audio quality in a quiet environment such as your house or they however do quite well. They are however not very ergonomic and hair gets caught. Plus side super duper cheap!
  • Pros: Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short, Unattractive Design

  • Summary: This is a timeless classic, although lately it's been outclassed by others at the same price point. But the main advantage is that the PortaPros are readily available at a local shop for less than the MSRP. However, if the price is too good to be true, it probably is! Be aware that there are counterfeits being sold: http://loveray.blogspot.com/2010/12/how-to-identify-fake-koss-porta-pro.html   As for the sound, expect an above-average amount of loose bass, which smears...
  • Pros: Lifetime warranty, lightweight
  • Cons: Slightly overpowering bass, high counterfeit rate

Breaks Easily

  • Summary: I bought these to listen to audio at work and on the train. I had them in my jacket pocket and someone bumped into me. When I took them out they were broken. VERY flimsy construction. The sound was OK when I had them but if you plan to move from location to location do not get these.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Summary: The Koss Portapros are great headphones for the person who is just getting started in the headphone world. They are very bassy, which many people may or may not like. The mids seem a tad recessed as well as the highs. They offer no isolation, but are very portable, and can be folded up. These cans work well with all sorts of music and are very fun. AWESOME value for the money. I have owned these cans for almost a year and these are still my favourites for portable usage.

  • Summary: The Koss Porta Pro is a decent, moderately priced portable headphone. Its sound quality does not compare favorably to headphones that cost slightly more, but it's still way better than what you'd get with a Walkman. The bass is a bit boomy and a bit muddy; the mids are a bit weak and the highs are a bit grainy. The three-position earpad adjuster plus above-the-ear pads make for a fairly comfortable listen, but at some expense of durability.

  • Summary: Similar to the Senns PX100. Almost linear but overpowered in the bass... but in a good way. They are a little more confused than the PX100 but also more musical and more natural in the mids-midhighs-highs regions. Very comfortable, very portable but not as the PX100.
