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).Read more ›
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.
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.
This version adds an inline mic for smartphones.
The best kept secret in portable audio. You will be blown away!
Additionally, these headphones DO NOT SOUND AS GOOD AS the "regular" Porta Pros!

The best! I've been buying these for years (I always end up losing them I can't remember ever breaking one) heavy low end and crisp minds n highs - unbeatablePublished 1 day ago by Jon Lipman
Amazing sounds. Only downside is that they don't come with GPS tracking and I lost my pair!
I couldn't recommend enough. Sound quality is an 11. Read more
Great sound and comfort. Skip the KTC though. The buttons on the controller are basically useless. There is no tactile feel to tell where the buttons are without looking. Read morePublished 17 days ago by Michal Foster
These headphones sound significantly better than headphones twice their price, plus you don't have to deal with having your ears being completely closed off. Read morePublished 23 days ago by G. Zimmerman
