Style Name: Porta Pro KTC
Koss Porta Pro KTC, the most sophisticated version of the Porta Pro, features a new technological upgrade which brings listeners closer to the music they love. Koss Touch Control (KTC) remote and microphone technology, made for iPhone, iPad and iPod, gives listeners more control in fewer steps. Listeners are now able to stay connected, shuffle song and adjust volume with the flick of a switch.
Koss Porta Pro KTC features the standard setting sound performance the original Porta Pro established over 25 years ago. Designed for those with refined musical taste, the lightweight Koss Porta Pro KTC does not sacrifice practical functionality for great sound. Constructed from Mylar, the elements are extremely rigid, minimizing mechanical distortion and ensuring exceedingly accurate sound reproduction.
Koss Porta Pro KTC feature dynamic elements that deliver exceptionally rich, deep bass, more control and a remarkably wide frequency response to capture every nuance in your favourite movie or musical performance.
Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling.

Build : Tiny, light and very comfortable to wear. would be great for running or in the gym. Fit snug and you forget you're wearing them. They look great, very retro and cool. You could wear these walking around the streets without any crazy looks.
Sound : I'm a bit of a headphone addict and have lots of IEMs and headphones. The other on-ear headphones i have are Sennheiser HD25ii (£130), and Yamaha HPH200 (£90). These little Koss Porta Pros can easily compete with both of these in sound quality. In comparison to...
HD25ii ; both have punchy, fun deep bass. the Senns are a tiny bit more accurate i.e. resolution, but both have great weight. Senns are a bit more detailed but only cos they are brighter i.e. clearer highs which a lot of listeners don't like cos it can get tiring (shrieky, sibilance). They are both equally as dynamic. Senns are more DJing accurate. The Koss are more fun and engaging. the Koss also have the wider soundstage. The stereo effect is further out your head. I like both equally. Value - Goes to koss obviously. What you get for £27 is outstanding.
Yamaha HPH200 - these are open back on ears. Bass on both is very simillar. Warm and punchy. Yamahas slightly more detailed, but both are warmer and richer sounding than the Senns. The Yamahas are wider sounding with bit more punch in the drums. Both are fun sounding cans. Yamahas again bit more dynamic. Koss is again more engaging, bot both are more musical than the Senns. My pref - maybe just goes to Yamahas cos they represent instruments very naturally and organically, but it's again VERY close which speaks wonders for the price of the Koss.
Too many budget headphones and IEMs get the title "giant killer" these days, but these really deserve it IMO. The price to performance ratio is outstanding. The biggest compliment is they are sooo musical and fun, a really intimate sound that works well for so many genres. The soundstage is very wide and deep. Quite 3D like actually.
If you'd like some advice for other budget sets which can compete with mid-fi sets here are my recommendations;
In ear earphones - Xiamoi Piston 3s (£20 on Amazon)
Earbuds - GranVela® Mrice E100 EarBell... currently unavailable on Amazon, but £20 on eBay
Both of these have excellent sound and actually sound very similar to the Koss Porta Pro funnily enough.
These are extremely lightweight making them comfortable to wear for extended periods, the foam pads sit on the ears so leak sound everywhere, everyone around you will know what you are listening to; they are however comfortable on the ears and I never found my ears to get overheated when wearing them. If you don't get on with IEMs or earbuds then the Porta Pro is a good companion for your mobile phone or DAP.
The cable is really thin and lightweight and the steel headband was bent out of shape after only a few times on my head but that just means they have moulded to my head shape for a better fit.
As always sound is where it counts with headphones and the Porta Pro has a decent reputation in sound quality. They aren't the best sounding headphones and they certainly aren't neutral but they are a pleasure to listen to and capture the detail and space of the music. You could easily listen to these for long periods without feeling any fatigue.
If you are looking for something that is reasonably priced, sounds good and you aren't worried about the way they look the Porta Pro makes a decent choice. They don't quite have the sound quality of my higher-end headphones but they aren't far off and were a fraction of the price.
The Porta Pro will give you good sound at a good price.
Koss/Hama uk honoured the lifetime warranty for my first set but made it extremely difficult to claim on my second set (they basically refused) however I bought another set anyway as I need something small like these and can wear them for hours. My 3rd (and final) set look absolutely ridiculous lol. They are taped together to within an inch of their life (which they are barely clinging too) I have also had to use string to hold the left earpiece attatched to the housing.
My first set was purchased in 2011 and is now 2018 and 3 porta pro’s later..So I guess some may say good going, but these were not my only headphones in use in that timeframe. Mainly the Koss PP are used fore home & tv watching only. I use Bluetooth cans for work commute, gym etc. Either way the Koss are great sounding but ultimately not a long term solution. I’m now looking for something different. My time is up with porta’s.
