The Original Stereophone
For some, music is a nice distraction. A thing to tap your toes to. For us, music isn’t a thing; it’s a place we go. We are the true believers.
Koss has been bringing people closer to the music they love for more than 50 years. The first Stereophone (SP/3) in the world was created by John C. Koss and Martin Lange in 1958 and since then, Koss’ innovative products have gone from strength to strength with a range now including Full Size Stereophones, On-Ear Stereophones, In-Ear Stereophones, Ear-Clip Stereophones, Wireless Stereophones and Communication Headsets. Now, more than 50 years later….Koss’ creation has become a $2 billion industry, worldwide.
Three principles serve as the foundation for the company’s success: The sound of Koss; focus on fit and breakthrough customer service. What do these principles mean?
The sound of Koss: Musician, John C. Koss created “the sound of Koss” in 1958 and we have stayed true to it to this every day. The sound of Koss brings music back to life. Koss engineers are rigorous in their pursuit of the absolute best sound but it is the human listening experience that sets Koss apart.
Focus on fit: We are obsessed with creating the absolute perfect fit – without it; we can’t get the perfect sound. We strive to create products that offer custom settings for every music lover. Our products couple to the ear – it’s just you and your music.
Breakthrough customer service: Koss was the first to offer Limited Lifetime Warranty in 1989. Our domestic customer support staff is ready to help any listener with any issue. The Koss US factory and warehouse is based in Milwaukee Wisconsin – logistically, Koss has created an onsite inventory system that makes “out-of-stocks” virtually impossible. With all this in mind, what specifically do the Koss Porta Pro On-Ear Headphones have to offer you?
The History of Koss Porta Pro On-Ear Headphones
Koss Porta Pro On-Ear Headphones’ high quality sound set performance and comfort standards for portable personal listening worldwide first introduced in 1984. Since then, to the delight of devout Porta Pro enthusiasts, Koss has preserved the original design and performance that made the Porta Pro a portable music icon.
Designed for those with refined musical taste, the lightweight Koss Porta Pro headphones continue to be the most requested headphone Koss headphone. Constructed from Mylar, the elements are extremely rigid, minimising mechanical distortion and ensuring exceedingly accurate sound reproduction.
What do Koss Porta On-Ear Headphones have to offer?
The Porta Pro’s offer extreme comfort with the fantastic temporal pads which provide you with an ultra-secure fit; making them ideal for running, walking and those daily visits to the gym. To add to that, the fantastic oxygen-free copper voice coils improve signal transmission for a clean, crisp sound, so you can listen to your music in its full glory.
Porta Pros are super light making them feel practically weightless, even after hours of high fidelity listening and the straight, dual entry 4 foot cord allows you extensive freedom of movement to ensure that you can position the headphones for optimum listening.

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.
Had the item returned - don't buy unless you're planning on using this with an apple product.
If you do have an apple product to use these with, for good points, obviously I can't speak for call quality etc. but the packaging is a very nice display box, no need to rip or cut anything to get at it, and you of course get the usual leather pouch to pack your headphones away in. The KTC porta pros are just as amazing sound quality as the regular porta pros, and still the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn - I usually get uncomfortable from all headphones within about an hour, but I've happily worn porta pros for hours on end. Their comfort zone pads really do help, it feels more like having two little pillows gently held against your head than wearing headphones.
If you don't have any apple products I'd highly recommend the normal porta pros instead, though you'll have to do without the inline microphone & track control keys (but you'll also pay less).
