2007-11-12 Koss Porta Pro

I was browsing the web for new headphones to use in the office. There’s some sort of defective contact in the cables of my ShureHeadphones. I already cut the cable once and soldered a new plug onto the rest. After a week the problem returned. I’m going to get rid of them. And I think I’ll go for something cheaper this time. An no in-ear headphones!

So I was looking for reviews...

I liked the advice given on headphone.com. It was divided into various categories and I picked “Replacing Cheap Headphones”. If they had a shop in Switzerland I would have ordered from there. I ended up ordering the Koss Porta Pro from K55. A small shop here in Zürich with friendly people. I’m having the headphones delivered to the office directly. This is the first time I did this. It feels weird. I took the Koss Porta Pro instead of the Sennheiser PX 100 because I liked the old school look.

The headphones cost me CHF 99 including delivery.



Good choice IMHO ;) I love mines

Apparently it has already been sent off... Perhaps I will be able to enjoy my music in true retro style starting tomorrow.

This is true old school: First model appeared in 1984! [1]


I also like the Koss Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Well, I’m wearing it right now and I’m happy. I have such a large head that I’m afraid of too much pressure on my ears...
