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.
