Portable Heaphone, Upgrading PX100 (or PortaPro)?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, its been a while I've been involved in Head-Fi.


I have had my PX100 for a while now as my portable can and I was wondering if there was a perhaps better replacement?


My treasured PX100 snapped in half when my sister accidentally stepped on it.


I would like the opinion of wiser members here who are for more knowledgeable in this matter.


My budget is sub $200 US.


p.s. I already have Koss PortaPro (which is also broken and need to be sent to koss...lol)

Porta Pros.  Two days ago, I would have said PX100s...but today, I know for sure, for me...Porta Pros - for 25 years they had it right.


Here's my review of both of them.

I'm in a similar situation, having recently given my PX100 away as a gift. I tried the porta pros, but found them uncomfortable (the hinge clip thing on the right side would rub against my ear). I really liked the sound and compactness of the PX100. Are the PX100-ii worth the upgrade? Any similar tiny portables out there?

My thoughts exactly, portapro and px100 is known as the best portable headphones, is it possible to go farther?

Without becoming an "airhead", with great difficulty.

FWIR... a full size headphone that some use as a portable is the ATH-M50. Another is the HD25-1 II, which is supra-aural. Search M50 and HD25-1. 


You also may want to post in the portable headphones forum.
