Pros: "Listenability", Warmth, Soundstage, Lack of Irritants
Cons: Treble Roll Off, "Fold" into a round rather than flat shape
So, 35.00, 40.00?
What do you get?
Very good sound, outstanding comfort,
a lifetime warranty.
It's a warm sound. Plenty of bass, not too much IMO,
significantly rolled off treble. Smooth midrange, not
overly present or recessed.
So light that they apply just a touch of pressure to
the top of your head and your ears. Mostly your ears,
and its softened nicely by the ear cushions. Very
comfortable, so that they can be worn for hours.
Clearer and more sonorous than the somewhat
competitive Sennheiser 100 II. Better bass and
generally similar build quality. More comfortable
as well. To my knowledge, there is no other
competition in this category.
The PortaPro > very, very comfortable, light in weight, inexpensive,
suited to a wide variety of music, sound far better than their price could ever indicate.
