A cool return to the 80s...

        Comments about Koss Portapro Headphones:

        Returning to the 80s, the Koss Portapro headphones provides stellar sound quality with a unique design and appeal. Aside from the appeal of the design, it has a great deal of functionality. It works for every type of phone or electronic one could think of as well. Koss hit a home run with the PortaPros. Love or hate the design, there's no denying the sound quality here: they're the ideal companion for mobile audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts.

        Sound Quality
        It contains excellent sound quality with a few bits of music fading away, but it doesn't stray from the overall experience. It immerses in your music, making you feel as if you are in a world of your own. What incredible sound these headphones possess...

        Comfort
        It is not the most comforting type of headphones with hard, cold metal usually sending shivers down one's spine. It does contain, however, some incredibly soft cushions for one's ears.

        Design
        I absolutely hated the design of the headphones which immediately had provided me with an unfamiliar feel to wearing headphones. Along with this problem, it has a terribly placed collapsible band that continually got my hair stuck. My opinion aside, I could imagine how someone could enjoy this headphone's unique design, but alas I did not provide it the same love as others.

        Durability
        It will last a long time if you can take good care of it, but it will not survive if it is constantly damaged.

              Crystal clear sound coming out of both sides.

              Comfort
              Great comfort, does wear on the temples after 4+ hours.

              Design
              Generally, comfortable and cool design.

              Durability
              Satisfactory durability. Should not be thrown around and mistreated.

                    These headphones are something to buy if you want to be more of an old fashioned person, because of its look, it does not really look up to date with the fashion, but the sound quality is still really nice. The price is worth the product, but the product is not worth the price. If you really want to be more up to date on the fashion, you should go ahead and buy some other ones, but if you just care about the sound quality, it does not get better than this, because the price is not so bad. You can buy this at any store that sells things like TVs, and other electronics.

                    Good Performance for the Price

                    Comments about Koss Portapro Headphones:

                    I am a provider for an individual with Downs Syndrome. Due to small ear canals this person cannot use ear buds. He likes to listen to music and play games. The noise often was distracting to others in his environment. Since he is on a fixed income we looked for a good quality headphone at a price he could afford. These were suggested and we are so glad. The sound quality is very good. They are comfortable to wear and do slip down or off easily. He especially likes the size and weight. He uses them on daily walks, often singing along with the music only he can hear. We would recommend these headphones for anyone who cannot wear in ear headphones who wants a great quality pear at an affordable price.

                    Great Headphones that Pack a Surprising Punch

                    Comments about Koss Portapro Headphones:

                    While you may, at first, be tempted to go in a different direction than the Koss Portapro headset, I think it may be worth your time to give it some more consideration, as these headphones surpassed my initial expectations.

                    Immediately looking at this pair of headphones, you'll notice they look quite strange (in terms of appearance and design). But that's fine! In fact, I noticed nothing hurting, poking, pinching or uncomfortable at all. Moreover, they were actually a lot more comfortable than other models I have tried in the past.

                    Now the important part: sound quality. These headphones, thought it may not seem like it, packs quite the punch! My music sounds rather clean and sharp, and not muddy at all - like some headphones in this price range can tend to get.

                    Conclusion? I'd say these are worth it. The only drawback I can immediately conceive is the design (which may look strange to some, but I like it), while the benefits outweigh.

                    I've been using these particular headphones for a long time now and can tell you, that they are very effective and practical indeed, because they are very comfortable to put on and they consistently deliver perfect quality sound. For me personally, these mentioned capabilities are a must, because I'm an avid music and video games buff. Plus, these headphones don't cost that much. Therefore, it's a win-win approach. I recommend it!

                    I bought these earphones for my brother as a Christmas gift. They were so awesome that I inadvertently kept borrowing them. They now reside with me and they are excellent! Snug and the sounds quality is better than Seinheiser. Maybe my Seinheisers are the lower end ones but all the same, I like these Kose headphones better. My only gripe is that the carrying case is difficult to shove the headphones into.

                    Koss PortaPro: Good Quality

                    Comments about Koss Portapro Headphones:

                    These headphones are for people who want to move into the area of better quality headphones, without paying too much. Comparing these headphones of similar price or cheaper, is easily noticeable. These headphones seem to put and emphasis on bass, which may put some people off, but is a good thing in my opinion. The portability of these headphones may be questionable, but if you're looking for something to fit in your pocket, you want some earbuds. The size of the band is adjustable to fit for your head size, and the firmness of the headphones against your ear is customizable as well. It also contains a lifetime warranty, which is very useful if you ever have any problems such as one channel no longer working, which is likely in most headphones.

                          The Koss Porta Pro Headphones is great for people who move around much and listening to music while training . The headphones sits good on your head and dont fall off easily. These headphones are extremely comfortable to be such a small headphones. The sound is pretty good, thinking about that the headphones is verry light and small. It has a verry neat mechanism, and that is that ity can fold in. That pretty much makes it way much smaller and easier to carry around. You also get a carrying-bag wich can protect the headphones, though its still pretty easy to brake. You can get this headphones in several colours; standard blue , Black, red, and the new white. The price is ok, its not too expensive. Koss also give u a lifetime warranty=)

                          Though there are some downsides with the headphones too. You got to be caring with it so you dont brake it. My opinion is that it has a little too short cord and it gets too short if ur having ur mp3 in ur pocket.

                          Comments about Koss Portapro Headphones:

                          At first I was skeptic of these headphones. They looked cheap, easy to break, uncomfortable, and I honestly doubted the quality. But after I got them I fell in love. These are definately great quality headphones and probably the best deal for the price. And the bass on them is awesome. I also noted that the metal bar was flexible and sturdy enough that you would literally have to be trying to break it to damage it. And you can even adjust the tightness so they were amazingly comfortable.

                          Also, it may look goofy or silly, but wearing them in public I've only heard people ask me where I got them. Apparantly retro is in, which I didn't get them for aesthetic purposes, but that's always a nice plus. And one of the best parts is, is that there's a lifetime warranty on them. If they break, you just have to send in a letter to Koss and boom, you get your new headphones.

                          So my initial thinking about these headphones was completely wrong, except that they're cheap.
