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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short, Unattractive Design

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: The first word that comes to mind when I think of the Portapros is "Bass!" The quintessential basshead cans; unfortunately, quality of bass is not great, tending toward a one-note quality that can be decidedly muddy at times.

  • 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.
