Product Description
In the 1950s, when rock ‘n’ roll was sweeping the nation but headphones were still largely reserved for communication purposes, Koss came along and changed everything by making the first stereo headphones designed specifically for personal music consumption. Since then, the company has continued to bring listeners closer to the music they love, and among their most popular releases was 1984’s Porta Pro Read More

Porta's are awesome!
My favorite of the Koss bunch.. Super comfortable with glasses. Added Yaxi's and modded for mmcx cause they're cheap enough to experiment. Funny that I reach for these constantly despite having LCD's and a few other ridiculously more expensive cans. Great for everyday sitting at the computer. Youtube, conference calls and sometimes straight into the xbox controller. 10/10 considering the price!

What is Koss Porta Pro X…
What is Koss Porta Pro X… It’s what you get when you have Drop rewards points and you are out of good stories about how you got another pair of expensive headphones. The Porta Pro have noticeably more low end than the kph30i. They also produce detail and air above their price point. However, the competition averages out around $100. They are also rather durable and light weight. The next all around step up in my collection is my ATH M50XBT. The Porta Pro’s performance, portable form factor and price just makes sense for cans on the go when you want good sound, and don’t want to worry about beating them up, or loosing them. The kph30i would be the next best choice in this category. Note: fit them to your head then put some black tape neatly around the top where the bands overlap, and leave the sides set to firm. Otherwise, you will have to constantly adjust them.

Does everything right
I love these headphones. They aren't my most portable or best-sounding pair, but they do everything so well from comfort to sound that I've just been using them with my btr5 and quite honestly cannot imagine wanting more out of audio. My new favorite pair of headphones, I bought a couple more pairs to keep in-box. I have taken the Koss-pill.

Love them
This is my third pair. Yes, and I still got a new ones. I can't send them back to the company because of the shipping costs but they're cheap enough so it's not a big deal. I love their sound and I love how light they feel and I can use them for hours with glasses on. The only negative part is the short cable, come on...

Good sound in a small package
You really don't expect these to sound as good as they do. They're even smaller than I thought they would be. Some sound leakage, and you hear stuff around you, but that makes them okay for walking around, letting you retain some situational awareness.

Tremendous
A great lower-profile (other than the retro look) option for exercise. Also just sounds phenomenal for the price. Outside of exercise, I would recommend the KPH-30i, which were based on these and have the same drivers. Those headphones have a better everyday band, fit, and look imo.

Extremely good for the price.
I like the ability to adjust pressure on the ears. The bass is quite good and the highs are smooth.

Iconic... but imractical
Look don't get me wrong - the sound is excellent for the price, and it's an iconic look - but your hair gets caught in it so often and badly to the point that I can't wear these unless I have a hat on and even then I have to take them off gingerly. Plus if you want to get the hooks on either end of the band to attach after you fold them up, you have to bend the headband quite a lot, more than I'm personally willing to - and after all that they don't fit very easily in the bag either way. God forbid you don't put them in some sort of bag though, because the cord will definitely tangle... so just what are these for? People who wear hats exclusively, and have a designated headphones pocket in their cargo shorts? I guess it's a retro design, make sense... In the end, much like cargo shorts these headphones are nostalgic, inexpensive, and highly functional for the price, but I usually won't put them on me due to a disagreement over some fundamental design choices. Also, you can get cargo shorts for like 22 bucks, I'd call that the better buy.

Great office headphones.
My go to headphones for the office. Love the 80s retro aesthetic too. Does it compare to your standard hd6xx? Hell No. But for $38, can’t really go wrong. My only complaint is your hair can easily get caught in the headband. Other than that, solid product.
