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

Dear friends, DHL indicated that they delivered the phone when they actually did deliver anything. It is easy to prove this nondelivery in my case as we have 24 guard in my office building and no one delivered anything. Do you have any experience how act in this situation. It happens first time and I have no experience. I wrote DROP and DHL but just got an standard write off.

Haven't received the package yet, but I have to say for a $38 headphone + $5 shipping fee to Italy it's good price, even with €7 import tax, then the FEDEX charges €13.5 for customs clearance, I mean what the fxxx? I don't care about how fast the cheap headphone you can ship from usa to Italy, at least you should let us have a choice to select ordinary post method, in that way I can wait bit longer but much less fee to pay when receiving the package. €13.5 equals to $16 fee for a $38 price tag headphone is )!(*)#(*&$%(_)*@&()_*&AS!

I ordered these back in July, got them two days ago. One fall off my desk later and it's already broke. I'm so bummed since they sounded so great and fit so perfectly. Anyone know if this is backed by the lifetime warranty?

No, after the fall, the plastic bit holding in the ball joint completely snapped off and flew off somewhere in my room. I decided the plastic bit was too small for me to reliably fix myself, so I just sent it in.

hello, I am going to get one of this, but I want to know is there any different between porta pro x and the porta pro?

Could be wrong, aside from color scheme, I think the pro x simply has the microphone added.

So disappointed by Koss. First who wants wired headphones today! And even their bluetooth version has wire! Frustrated cause I would love this style of headphones (light on ear) for walking around but can't find any. Koss Porta Pro are pretty close but wires are ruining it.

I totally agree. I wish they came out with a detachable pair at least. On that point, honestly, when the wires eventually do break, you can look into soldering a pair of MMCX female connectors to Porta Pros (many resources online on how to do this), thereby turning them into a worry-free detachable cable pair of headphones. All you'd need to buy are cheap MMCX cables to connect to them, typically sold as replacements for MMCX compatible IEMs on Amazon. Attaching an image of my recently revived Porta Pros (from mid 2000s) which I decided to skill-up my repairman game for, instead of buying a new pair. A pair of female MMCX connectors can cost under $5 on Amazon, plus whatever you spend on the detachable cable, a bit of solder and minor hit to the electricity bill, and you'll probably spend no more than $15 on the repair (unless your time is more valuable to you). I did this under 2 hours, first time try, but do have some prior soldering experience from decades ago. Other than this DIY approach, sadly we're stuck with Koss warranty replacing these, but shipping is always the issue, especially for internationals. :(

Not much other info regarding Drop’s durability improvements. I’ve had Porta Pros since the early ‘90’s, and the one common place of failure has ALWAYS been where the connector wire exits the headphones. Does anyone have any further details about this critical area/issue?

I have a standard pair of these for running. Love 'em apart from my wavy locks gets trapped in them. I prefer them to in-ears. Not quite so clinical as some I've owned and feel very secure for exercise. What's the difference to the standard version other than colour? Does the sound differ?

The Massdrop edition has a built-in mic. Other than that, I don't believe there's any difference.

Those don't have the microphone. Not sure a mic is worth the extra $9 bucks but just FYI - its not an apples to apples comparison.
