  • Excerpt: I owned the Porta pro in the 80's & loved it but new model's jack is not for android phones! Also, the volume control on wire is way too close to the top & hard to see.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short

Good sound for the price but way overrated overall.

  • Summary: I bought these expecting what I got. They have good sound for a $37 pair of headphones... a little pricy for what you get. The sound is ok for an on ear phone. A lot of sound leeks out. I was really thinking they may have been built a little better than they looked online. They also look larger online. They shoulda taken the packaging money and put it into a better build. They are what they are I guess.
  • Pros: Bass, Sound Quality, Nice Packaging, Warranty.
  • Cons: Cheap build, a LOT of sound leakage, quiet sound output(have to turn it up really high), short cord, bad design 80's look, low highs and mids but crisp, a little bit muffled bass.

  • 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

  • Summary: My favorite pair of headphones. Sure they are not as good as my Grado's but they also cost 5 times less. I love them. For this size of headphones I have tested many options an no other pair of similar size can give you such a good sound stage and bass. I can throw then in my bag never having to worry that they would break, crack or bend. Best portable/collapsible headphones I ever got to own.

  • Summary: Extreme amount of bass! I don't like this much bass anymore. Sound quality is not as good as should be according to the popularity of these.

  • 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: 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.
