Koss PortaPro (with Case) review: Koss PortaPro (with Case)

 

With so many funky headphone designs flooding the market right now, it's getting harder and harder to choose which one to buy. Instead of showing you the latest snazzy set of cans, we're taking you back in time to showcase the Koss PortaPros. These...

The Koss PortaPro Headphones combine a functional design with excellent 3D sound and a low price tag.

Hair gets caught in the collapsible band; some people will dislike the '80s aesthetic.

Koss hit a home run with the PortaPros. Love or hate the design, there's no denying the sound quality here: they're the ideal companion for mobile audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts.

Koss KEB24 review: Koss KEB24

 

In the realm of ultracheap earphones, Koss is a contender, offering an extensive selection of earbuds for 20 bucks or less. Falling just above that--but still in the affordable range--is the $24.99 KEB24 line. This Portable Isolation Earbud comes in a...

The Koss KEB24 Stereo Earbuds are inexpensive, offer plenty of bass, and are accented in a variety of colors for style points.

The cable of the Koss KEB24 is tangle-prone, and the earbuds may be uncomfortable for some users during extended wear. Some music sounds distorted or muffled.

For 25 bucks, the Koss KEB24 earbuds offer reasonable style, comfort, and sound quality. But these aren't the best headphones for every genre of music.

Evil Dead 2: 25th Anniversary Edition

 

Just as with the first film, it's not long before the evil of the woods takes and possesses Linda, turning her into a horrifying, yet somewhat hilarious deadite. Ash then has to survive the night, which this time he succeeds (well, at least most of him...

One of the absolute best Horror/Comedies of all time ; Bruce Campbell as Ash. Hail to the King, Baby ; Sam Raim's creative and out of this world way of shooting a film is just mind blowing ; This is the best the film has ever looked and sounded ; An...

This movie deserved a digibook release! A digiNecromicon at that

Although some of the other features are from previous releases, they contribute nicely and help to round out a more complete package.

Koss PortaPro 25th Anniversary Edition Headphones Review

 

In a perfect world, things come full-circle. From the redesigned, retro-styled Mustang and Camaro to vinyl albums, products can go out of style only to come roaring back. Such is the case with the Koss Porta Pro headphones. Well, sorta the case,...

Amazing sound for the price ; Retro Style

Too expensive compared to the regular Porta Pros ; Retro Style

B.o.B. - May 25th Mixtape

 

Who is Bobby Ray Simmons? I'm sorry, I mean who is B.o.B.? No, wait, I think it's; who is Bobby Ray? Like his music, B.o.B. has the potential to be many things: a chronically high Atlanta rapper, a singer who likes to perform onstage with an acoustic...

Koss PortaPro Headphones

 

There was a time when many people serious about their music disdained headphones. Those cans of yore were uncomfortable, didn't reproduce music as well as loudspeakers, and couldn't be worn unless they were clamped on your head while you sat staring at...

Koss Porta Pro Headphones

 

Consumer testers noted that Koss' Porta Pro pair was just mediocre in terms of comfort, and sound quality also earned middling scores in GHRI tests. But the headphones were the most portable of the bunch we tested, thanks to their fold-up design. Plus...

With a hefty price tag of Rs. 2,400, these are too expensive for the kind of performance they deliver. Earphones such as the SoundMAgic PL11s offer much better audio performance and are cheap at just Rs.550. What Koss have managed to create are some...

Koss PortaPro 25th Anniversary Headphones

 

This series of headphones by Koss, known as the PortaPro is true retro at its grungy best. Reminding one of the late 80's moving into the 90's, these on ear stereophones come with punk rock written all over it — you can imagine contorted teenage faces...

At Rs 4,500, there is not much to complain about these cool headphones except that they're slightly pricey. They have a clean, wide soundstage, with especially sweet treble. Bass is powerful enough to satisfy my Low Frequency urge. The Portapro is a...
