I'll give you the TL;DR first:

Pros:
Lightweight, adjustable in both size & pressure
Great sound with tight punchy bass
Built-in microphone with volume & play/pause control
Low price
Folds up compactly for storage
Sytlish (funky & retro is in after all)
Lifetime warranty!

Cons:
Leaks sound like crazy
It's hard to cram these into the included carrying case

These headphones aren't just good for the price, they're darn good headphones period. I heard a pair of Porta Pros in Best Buy years ago and was wowed by the sound quality. However, since my iPhone had replaced my MP3 player, the only headphones I ever considered buying were those that also doubled as a headset. Back on the rack they went. Fast forward a few years and I see Koss has updated their iconic Porta Pro to include an in-line mic. But would they sound as good as I'd remembered? Amazon had (and has) them on sale so I figured why not take the gamble?

The gamble paid off: I love these 'phones. They sound very similar to my Sennheiser PX-100IIi's but with a bit more bass punch and a little less clarity. I've talked on the phone several times with the Koss' and no one has trouble hearing me. The buttons on the KTC work without issue, though it would've been better if the buttons were raised for better tactile feedback. Other reviewers have alluded to the difficulty in using the KTC, but really it's certainly not any worse than other headset I've tried.

I prefer the sound of these to my Bose QC 15 and the Beats Solo I owned (till the headband snapped) which cost $350 and $200 respectively, and didn't include a warranty. I'll add though that the Bose still excel when it come to noise-cancellation (which is why I bought them).

I bought these after reading several glowing reviews. I was, however, skeptical. The whole vintage/throwback thing sounded like a gimmick and I had a hard time believing that a product so old was really of such high quality. I own a pair of Skullcandy Aviators, which I like very much, but needed a lighter weight, lower maintenance headphone. While I'm not a huge headphone fanatic I have owned and handled quite of few of the more popular brands and think I can tell the difference in quality between brands. I decided on the Porta Pro KTS, because I listen to music on my smartphone (Android, Samsung Galaxy Note 2) and needed a lighter, lower maintenance headphone that I could also talk into.

All I can say is that I'm blown away with this purchase.

The sound: OUTSTANDING. Definitely comparable to, or better than products far more expensive. A range of sounds and styles of music play clearly. Very clear and can crank up and get loud when I need them to

As far as the build: the lightweight feel is so inconspicuous that I barely know that I have headphones on (I've had them on for hours at a time). I've worn these jogging and to the gym; surprisingly they are the best gym headphone that I've ever worn, because they have great sound and are so light. Just because they are thin and small does not, however, mean they are cheaply build. They are actually very well-built. The key is the simplicity. And the ability to fold up into such a small size makes storage a breeze. They can fit in a small coat pocket.

The look: its a matter of taste, I guess, but I really like them. I'm not always into vintage looks but there's an undeniable charm to these.

The remote control: I honestly don't use all the functions on the remote and only need the microphone, which is very clear. People are surprised to hear that I'm using a headset at all.

This is one of my favorite tech purchases of the past few years.

Koss makes some very nice headphones and if you are not a fan of earbuds, the Porta Pros are a great alternative. They have good sound, they fold small, the adjustable headband is unusual but very comfortable, and they have a famous and distinctive look. Further, though I haven't had to use it with these headphones, I know from previous experience that Koss is very good about honoring their lifetime warranty.

I've given five stars but would be giving 4.5 if that were possible. This is because the iPhone/iPod controls are too close to the ear. It's impossible to see the buttons while you're wearing the headphones without going crosseyed. The set would be much nicer if they were 3-5" lower down. Also, when working with a phone or iPod, I prefer headphones with a shorter cable, and a cable extender for those cases where I want it longer. Many competing headphones use that combination and I wish Koss had done so as well.

The Koss PortaPro has been THE ABSOLUTE BEST lightweight portable Walkman-style headphone in existence since first released in 1984. Others have tried to emulate the sound, like Sennheiser's PX-100 and PX-100II, but they can't touch this for bass, clarity, non-fatiguing smoothness, and the ability to sound good LOUD.

This version adds an inline mic for smartphones.

The best kept secret in portable audio. You will be blown away!

After purchasing the "regular" Porta Pros without phone support, I was EXCITED about getting these headphones that would allow me to talk on the phone on the go. However, the phone mechanism DOES NOT WORK WELL AT ALL, and I often just end up pulling the plug out and talking on the phone regularly.

Additionally, these headphones DO NOT SOUND AS GOOD AS the "regular" Porta Pros!
