Hey guys I’ve been searching for some cheapish headphones to use with my recently bought PSVR Headset. Came across these at a decent price. They look to be around $79 usually. Heard they are pretty good for the price. Been wanting to try them so at this price I’ll give them a go.

    Keep in mind these headphones have a lifetime warranty, if bought from an 'approved outlet'. Worth checking up on and paying a bit more for, though you'd think Amazon would pass…

      Being via Koss Australia and lifetime warranty in the title you'd hope these are considered 'approved'

      Also in black for $47.13

      Also note if you have Prime then the price is $49.82.

    Despite the way they look these sound VERY good. They are very lightweight and easy to wear in hot weather unlike full size over ear headphones.

      Other good points: work well on almost any source, balanced sound, open type (you are aware of your surroundings), light, compact. Great value for the sound. Wired.

      Possible reasons why they're not for you: not bass heavy, open (noise leaks to those nearby), for some the headband is not robust, and can get caught in hair.

    Vintage look but first class sound.

  •  

    These or KSC75?

    •  

      I prefer the 75s. More accurate. But the porta is more tight on the ear for commuting. I hear them both on seperate occasions.

    Good price. ~$60 AUD posted on Massdrop at the moment. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-koss-porta-pro-x-hea...

    Also have the Koss KSC75X for ~$30 AUD posted. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-koss-ksc75x-on-ear-h...

    I had these headphones and they sounded very good. I have plan to buy the wireless model next time. Good price . Nice find op.

  •  

    porta pros are amazing. I had 3 pairs, all of them lasted long, and gave amazing sound.

  •  

    Awesome sound. The foam covers wore out on mine but the unit was still strong. Ended up Replacing the foam and good as new

  •  

    How does the audio quality compare with the Sony XM3s?

  •  

    Great product. My dad had them back in the mid-90s so they're the first cans I ever used.
    Sold by Amazon US even though vendor is Koss Australia. Might be worth adding information about delivery cost.
    Also they're currently showing as $49.82 for me, which makes them just eligible for free international shipping with Prime.

    I purchased these from deal on here a some years ago (I think from Mymemory). I recently threw them out as I thought it was not worth the effort of chasing them for the lifetime warranty.

    • Cord too short
    • Retro metal band and design looks cool but not as comfortable compared to padded headphones.
    • Foam comes off the earpiece
    • The swivel where the ear piece attaches to the band is prone to breakage.
    • One side stopped working
    • In storage the remainder of the foam disintegrated.
    • Sound quality was good as you would expect from Koss however your probably not able to get the full benefit (as opposed to in-ear or full cup over ear)
    • They still lasted longer than "cheap" headphones.
    • If you dont need the portable aspect of the PortaPro the HD201's I purchased for half the price on special were far superior and lasted longer (disregarding its an unfair comparison of portable vs deluxe).
    •  

      Yeah, kind of agree. I changed the wire a few times on mine, remember them being uncomfortable, ripping hair out and sort of digging into my ears.

      They did sound good though.

      They are showing as 49.xx plus 11.xx for delivery…

    Looks like they've changed the listing since I got them this morning. Definitely didn't say it was being sent by Amazon US.
