LargeZ's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A sound that has not changed ... in thirty years:)"

Koss Porta Pro
How long have you use it?
More than 20 years (I renewed my purchase one time after 10 years)

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No ... or so headphones available to me as a bundle with other products ... Brief nothing to do with the Porta Pro in terms of quality.

What is so special that you love the most, least?
+ Ease of use due to its lightness. (No pain in the ears)
+ The frequency response is linear. Note, two small bumps in the bass and treble. Is negligible.
+ The price
+ The strength
+ Legend

There are no less ... in 20 years of use (the legend)

How would you rate the quality / price?
Exceptional.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
If I had to buy one in 10 years? YES!

Koss Porta Pro
We are here in the presence of a legend in his genre and this one seems justified! Its compact, rendering quality unexpected for a product of this nature and the comfort provided (grade anyway after several hours of listening, the headset becomes annoying on the head) made me look for a 10/10! I tried this headphone by chance share a friend and since I am bought and can not do without! Good power generally (nothing to do with respect to a behringer headphone for example, a different world altogether!) Low round and structurally sound without being invasive, famous mediums and acute nazillards never, never "buzz" without a fault in brief !
I love him and if he lasts as long as possible, apparently I did not worry too much was me, this is a sustainable product!

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Mobile headset"

Koss Porta Pro
I use it for 2 years.
I use it as mobile headset for my laptop: I also had a small bose, but I prefer the PortaPro.
For the price, I can not complain about this headset: it is precise enough, strong enough, comfortable enough for anything less than € 30!
It folds, takes up little space and with the mini-mouse in the laptop bag, it was a busy place great value / quality.
To be clear, this is not a stereo headset is a headset troubleshoot. And gender, should be fine.

Koss Porta Pro
PORTA PRO Catalogue presents Koss past twenty years!
It is a kind of legend in the field of headphones, retro design DCAL hundred places futuristic headphones.

In the costing
Whereas the price has declined in last years, and we can now find it less than 15 (prices found craftyprice.com)
The dynamics are impressive. Low power and are well kept, with an unusual level on a headphone View Categories of this, the medium rather is natural, treble is not specific on aggressiveness. Each instrument detaches with precision. This headset reproduces music alive. The cost is never tiring.

Associations
This headset features a noise like a magnifying glass. He resents the mediocre sources which will obviousness the defects. Branchs on my laptop, which sound card is not a model that has the quality of results are very bad, but in fact the height of the source. Same with MP3 encoded poorly, or a bad MP3 player.
I test iPad nano is already very good. You can even occasionally marry this headphone hi-fi quality. This is not an aberration.
As it is a semi-open headphones, you continue to hear noises outside. This can be an advantage or inconvnient as usual as we a. In addition other hear hissing loud enough. Gnant is for example for use in transportation.

In use
: Mechanical comfort of this headset is questionable. It does not warm the ears, is trslger, but I have a little trouble even stand for several hours.
These headphones are foldable and fits in a pocket provided.
The headset connector is a mini-jack, but it comes with an adapter jack.

Robustness
He accompanies me throughout my five years has been moving. The foam pads provide some signs of weakness, but there are easily replaced. But mostly I dont no false contact dplorer. So I would call excellent robustness.

In conclusion
It is a product with great qualities endearing, but not in NUD default.
Most are its sound quality, robustness, a report qualitprix unbeatable.
The least, these are some intransigence on the quality of sources, its questionable aesthetic and relative discomfort.

Koss Porta Pro
It's been two days dj I use with my Creative Zen Touch.
Superb bass at last! Balance in the other frequencies.
I have tried many, it's a bit better than the PX-100, and MUCH better than PX-200 ... Although the PX-200 has great clean sounds.
For 30 via the Amazon excluding shipping, is a case in 79 Virgin Flac & Cie is a scam pure and simple! I'm still shocked!
I find it comfortable, it's an open headphone so that does not isolate, but isolated enough for the street, the RER in tronons not too noisy.

I do it again if that choice has biensr is still in the same price, because 79 ... EXAGRES should not the margin they are distributors ... !

It yasr best for much more expensive, but for everyday use, it's perfect.

Koss Porta Pro
Frankly ... It's ecstasy ...
The weight of lightweight, portable cot on ... But it's not just a!
For his ... there is low for a headphone, the upper ...
but he does not sin at the bottom of medium, at once the balance is perfect
and everything becomes clear and trsdfini ...

Absolutely nothing to do with the villains of his iPod headphones and
rather thundering when you're used headphones worthy of the name ...

And as usual it is all about, as elsewhere in zic ...

He also won the Diapason d'Or of the journal sine qua non. Rare for a headset of this price.
To buy the closed eyes and ears open!

Personally, I'll buy one ... and I have me lugging
tros a big headphone ...

Koss Porta Pro
Frankly ... not the ecstasy ...
Lightweight for the weight, the portable cot ... OK then!
For his ... there is low for a headphone, the upper ...
fishing but too young medium, the sudden lack of balance
and everything is loud and aggressive ...

Trs right to change the villains of his iPod headphones, but
pretty bad when you're used headphones worthy of the name ...

And as usual it is all about, as elsewhere in zic ...

Personally, I went to Darty Boy ... and I continue to lug around
a good and big headphones ...

Koss Porta Pro
Nice and lightweight headset purchased new (without cover) to less than € 40.00 in France! So I'm not going to complain to the value prix.Paraît fragile.Sons rather pleasant without being aggressive bass present, good mids and highs (they are not worth the bass), good presence générale.J have had many gold headphones it's worth it.

Treetman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Koss Porta Pro
I use these headphones for a month now and not much to complain about.

It is lightweight, can be a bit too much which may suggest that it is a little cheap bill. Like other reviews I'm not very confident about its longevity. Although I think we can trust Koss who also plays on his reputation for advertising. The sound is very well rendered, real serious (I'm bass player) the highs are good. As for the serious media can be a bit feeble but again nothing nasty for headphones at this price point. It was soon surprised by the 80's headphone, to the point where I thought I had a toy, a walkman headphones of the 80s (you know those headphones with orange ...) but we are also surprised by the quality of sound . The connectors are gold-plated. A small thing to say about the length of the wire (a bit short in my opinion) but again nothing too serious. Note that this headphone is guaranteed for life!

I have not tried 36 models and I especially relied on the advice of other users Audiofanzine. I needed a headphone quickly enregisrer mini studio and now, an internet search, a command and that's it. Two days after I received it at home.

The price / quality ratio is probably the best that can be found on the market. No complaints.

With the little experience I have with this material, I would do the same choice again.

Koss Porta Pro
- How long have you use it?
1 year

- What is the particular feature you like most?
The sound much clearer and chased my old ITE, I use it mainly equilibrated with my MP3 player optimized for a flat rponse (iAUDIO in Rockbox). Also the size?

- ... the least?
Their fragility. I do not trs t careful, it's true, but the jack has a loose connection recently, which will force me to replace it :-( Other dtail boring: the cables spend their time twisting. But the apparent fragility of the structure does not reflte MODEL physical weaknesses. And finally, something normal for this type of headphones means normment the collection's outdoor and vice versa. So by not super mobility

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I have procured a coincidence (bargain)

- How do you report qualitprix?
Excellent (40 for me)

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
For use in mobility forcment not, I may be to turn to the ITE (Shure E2C? ...). To listen to music in a quiet, certainly.
