+ great overall sound quality, probably unbeatable at this or even double this price
+ potent but not overbearing bass; fairly neutral mids and highs; no listening fatigue
+ comfortable and secure fit (I have a big head); they stay put moving around, jogging, working out
+ continuously adjustable headband (no notches) helps achieve ideal fit
+ on-the-ear design with soft pads so ears don't get warm/hot
+ foldable for portability
+ open back design makes it sound more like listening to speakers in a room instead of music just focused inside your head
+ open back design lets outside sounds in so you're aware of surroundings (great for jogging)
+ lifetime warranty (haven't used yet; if you're careful, these shouldn't break)
- bass doesn't extend super low; not much bass output below about 50 Hz
- for electronic and rap/hip-hop music, lack of very low bass is an issue with SOME songs. MOST songs sound fine.
- open back design will leak what you're listening to into the nearby environment
- headband may occasionally pull a hair; adjust the band BEFORE placing on head and do not adjust while on head to prevent this
- occasionally a small hair may get stuck inside the driver causing a slight rattling noise; gently remove earpad and blow out the hair to fix
- earcups pivot slightly for comfort, but mine developed a creeky noise when pivoting in the left earcup; sometimes audible during listening
These are by far the best sounding headphones I've heard anywhere near their price range. I honestly think you'd have to spend at least 2-3 times as much to get better sound. They are also the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn: very adjustable, ears don't get hot, stay firmly put with just the right amount of pressure. It's easy to see why they've been around for about 30 years and their design hasn't been significantly changed. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" applies here. Very highly recommended. Please let me know if you found this review helpful by voting on it. Thanks!
The latest pairs appear to be manufactured differently; they have issues with sliding the plastic tabs over the metal strap, popping and muddled sound, and a plastic cover where the screw was on the left can. I had assumed initially that this was a change in the manufacturing process, that is until I received a pair of the special edition Koss PortaPros that were recently release, which were identical to my previous pairs in every way except the color-way. So either the generic colors are being manufactured differently or the headphones I have received are not authentic.
I will say these headphones are usable, though having owned multiple pairs the pairs I have received do not live up to my expectations. My review for the previous pairs of headphones would be 5 stars, unfortunately the latest pairs I have received do not deserve the same rating.
I have attached photos comparing the build quality of a previous pair I own to that of what I received from Amazon. You'll notices differences in the molds used to cast parts of the headphones. These capture some of the issues but its hard to explain the feeling of what appear to be tight manufacturing tolerances and warped plastic.
I first read about these headphones while searching for an inexpensive pair I could keep at the office without being too terribly worried if they 'went for a walk'. The 80s look has a lot of charm, especially up close, and while it can make them look like they're some really cheap throw-away headphones from decades past, they are anything but!
The quality of sound is fantastic. Sure, you're not going to get the ultra-mega-pure-quality you might get from a pair of $400 Senns, but they are absolutely lightyears ahead of anything else I've tried at this price point (fifty bux at the time I purchased them). Exceptionally lightweight, fully adjustable; they have a quality feel to them, and it's great to be able to fold them up, pop them into the included soft case, and toss them into a laptop bag without worrying about them getting busted up or otherwise damaged.
So far I haven't needed to worry about replacement earpads, but they seem to be plentiful here on Amazon in the event you wind up needing any (and for cheap!), which also puts them well ahead of other inexpensive headphones I've had in the past.
The cable is pretty much the perfect length as well; enough slack to connect to a phone or music player without having to worry about the excess getting tangled up or caught on things.
I've been using these with the also excellent and inexpensive Fiio K1 USB amp/DAC, which has made them just that much better - no matter what computer (or phone, with the right USB connector) I plug them into, I get a predictable and high quality music experience.
Overall, I've been incredibly pleased with this purchase; I love the look and feel, and the sound they put out is probably as good as you can possibly hope for at this price point.
