Is there any place to get the white PortaPros in the U.S.?

I'd love to get a pair of these.

As far as I know; not possible. I contacted Koss about this one time and they said it's only available in Europe.

That's lame.

Time to buy from Amazon UK and find a shipping service like Tenso for Japan. Anyone know of one for the UK?

Damn.

 

The odd thing is if you send a specialty version of the KPP in for warranty they'll send a new pair of the same specialty version back. Maybe they have just enough on hand to fulfill warranties?

 

I had to send a pair of the all-black editions in long after they were no longer available and got a new pair back.

They told me if I ever need to send my Koss DJ Tony Bennett Special Edition in, I would get another pair even though I think they discontinued them.

Koss is awesome like that!

Yes :)

They really honor their warranty and are pretty fast with it too. I sent my PortaPros for repair one time and got it back within a week. 
 

Best customer service experience so far; apart from Amazon/NewEgg. Had to return this Computer Power Supply back to Corsair for warranty and it took them over a month to even get one back to me.

Did a lovely hack job on my portapro driver covers today lol. I didnt have the right tools so i just used a soldering iron to melt as much of the cover away as i could. It seems to have cleaned up the sound a little. I also have the KSC-75 pads on as they are a little thicker and that combined with using the light comfortzone setting keeps the driver a little further away from the ear which helps to reduce some of the boomy bass and brings out more of the highs. So far i'm liking it quite a lot!

If i can find a better tool i think i'll try removing even more so i only have one straight piece going across the driver instead of the cross shape it has now.

Or you can remove the driver cover completely and replace it with steel mesh. You can't do a crappier job than I did below, but you get the point:

How did you attach the mesh to the driver housing?

Some sort of glue.

 

If you do it, just make sure that there aren't pieces of mesh sticking out around the edges (like there are in that pic) because the pads get easily caught in them when taking off and putting on the pads. Just do a better job than I did!

How does that affect the sound? Very interested...

A new addition to my Porta Pro collection. From Japan, a white limited edition Porta Pro.

 

This is the box it came in. Nicer than their old blister type packs.

 

I think these packaging cost more, so the adapter have to go.

 

Silver ring and disc.

 

White cables, L jacks and silver headband.

 

With the other white Porta Pro. Silver and black accents.

 

Different type of cables. 1 has the fabric covers and other plastic coated.

 

The pouch difference. The older ones at the bottom are nicer and have a more polish finish.

 

With the Mellow Yellows.

 

The white cable is thicker, more like the older Porta Pros.

 

These are nice headphones, I love them!
