Koss Porta Pro are great sounding headphones.
Between their weight and grip, I can actually run while wearing these headphones and they won't slide off my head or slide around.
Excellent headphones light comfortable great sound.

The good:

1) The Koss Porta Pro KTC has retained the same level of performance of the original Koss Porta Pro but with Koss Touch Control (KTC) Microphone & Remote. Even more funtional than before.
2) Folds up into a small round form & is ideal for travellers & people on the go. Highly portable.
3) Sound quality for the money is second to none. For under USD100 there are no better headphones out there. Period.
4) These are one of the lightest & most comfortable headphones. I can wear them all day long without tiring.
5) Easily available & user replaceable cushions.
6) It's Very easy to drive these cans. Even my iPhone 3GS drives them loud with ease, without the need for a headphone amp.

The not so good:

1) The carrying pouch is useless & is not stiff enough to protect these cans. I suggest buying the Koss Hard Case B directly from their website. It's priced at USD10 & is an essential accessory. Inside the Koss Case B there is a thin sheet of Nylon that acts as a partition to seperate the chord from the phones, it's a nice touch. The Case B does protect the phones really well, but it's a lil' too big for these cans.
2) The styling looks really dated now. Well it was launched in 1983 & still remains unchanged after almost 30 yrs. A classic indeed!
3) Open back design means that the sound leaks. Not a deal breaker for me.
4) It's lightweight & that adds to it's superb comfort levels, but on the other hand, it's not rugged at all. Needs to be handled carefully.


I have been using the original Koss Porta Pro for the last 5 yrs. I still have them & use them whenever I'm travelling or late at night, when I cannot afford to disturb others in the house.

I'll give you the TL;DR first:

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!

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.
