"it makes an ideal travel headphone" This statement is patently false. Have you ever tried to watch something or listen to music with a Porta Pro on a plane? It's impossible. These headphones are open which makes you rude because everyone can hear what you're listening to and all outside noise disrupts what you're listening to also. And now the wireless version adds a dangling wire (a first & last for headphones with a headband I hope) which makes it just as bad for travel as wired headphones. Also, its not even dirt cheap anymore because of the "addition" of wireless.

It is nice that they toss in a hard case instead of the bag. $15 from Koss, thought there are some cheaper aftermarket alternatives.

The case really is nice. I like how the blue on the zipper is the same updated blue on the driver!

Did you get the little pun? The zipper on the case has "blue teeth". Not only stylish but clever too.

Have you ever owned PortaPros? They leak even less sound than most closed circumaural headphones. They're not ideal for travel because they they don't block outside noise, but they leak less noise out than standard earbuds.

Yes, I own the wired ones. on A plane, thanks to the issue you described, I needed to turn up the volume so high to be able to hear properly - and then at that point they leak enough to annoy the person next to you. I’m not saying they’re bad headphones but they are far from the perfect travel headphone.
