Koss "Porta Pro" On Ear Headphones
About this deal
The KSC75 can be driven sufficiently from any device with a decent headphone output, and pairing them with a source that is many magnitudes of cost more expensive doesn’t seem to improve the sound significantly. A close look at the KSC75. Bass There’s also a surprising amount of bass weight, without skewing or muddying the balance, and while their treble is perhaps not the sweetest we’ve ever heard, it is far from coarse or distracting.

In-Line controls on the Porta Pro® Wireless Bluetooth headphones allow users to wirelessly change songs, answer/end calls, change volume, and much more*. Disclaimer: The KOSS KPH30i sent to us is paid for and not a sample in exchange for our honest opinion. The KOSS KPH30i was recently promoted via Drop and you can find more details here. Everything pertinent to build and design you could essentially glean from looking at a photo, though; what we’re really here to tell you is how great these headphones sound for such a tiny sum of money.The rubber strap at the top of the headband is also a nice touch as it properly distributes the little weight that the headphone has on my head, which means that I can wear these headphones for hours, without feeling their weight on my head. Clamping The pads are also slightly bigger, giving the KPH30i a slight edge on the overall comfort. I believe that the comfort of the KPH30i is more suited for long listening sessions than the Porta Pro. Originally introduced in 1984, the Koss Porta Pro® hasstood the test of time due to its impressive performance and portability. Equipped with dynamic elements that deliver a wide frequency response and deep bass, Porta Pro® offers remarkable sound reproduction producing a rich, detailed audio experience that enhances the enjoyment of music across various genres.
I (and many others) have gone on at length about the superb 60ohm, 35mm driver found in the Porta Pro, Sporta Pro, KPH30i, and the KSC35. Koss uses a titanium-coated version in the UR40, KTXPro1, and KSC75. This extraordinary driver defines this legendary series of headphones and has been in constant production and daily use for almost four decades! Koss headphones with the 60ohm driver are important staples in the portable headphone industry. The high-frequency reproduction is resolving enough to provide a decent feeling of detail, and the KPH30i are reasonably articulate. They don’t extend to the top-most highs, and the treble remains polite and non fatiguing. This sound profile works great for long listening sessions (especially with audiobooks).
I can’t argue the value proposition presented by the KSC75. Their low price does much to offset any concerns with their limitations. While I prefer the Porta Pro, they are far more expensive than the KSC75.
