Koss Porta Pro left channel stopped working, should I buy a new pair of porta pros or is there...

post #1 of 5

I have the all black porta pros which are around 2 years old and have the "cloth" style cable.

 

Recently the left channel started cutting out, if I bend the wire right at the jack I can get it working again so for now I put a paper clamp on it lol.

 

I'm just wondering if it would be worth attempting to fix or just buy another set of porta pro's, I love the way they sound on my GoGear Vibe player (for whatever reason they sound better on this vs. my Ipod) but figured I'd still ask if theres any other  headphone models in the same portable category that might be even better?

 

Thanks.

koss has free lifetime warranty of a product, send with a check +shipping costs to get a new one free (last time I checked it was 5.00 shipping)

I think that shipping is now $9 but that's still a good deal. I have a set of in-ear buds that need replaced and that's the number that I found on the site. Even if you end up buying a new set of phones, you can have the Porta Pros as backups. My brother loves his Porta Pros and is having a similar issue. He likes them enough to not bother looking for alternatives so I'm not sure what's competitive in the class.

Even since upgrading to full size cans I still enjoy the sound sig of the KSC-35 (same driver as porta pros). Portapro/KSC-35/75 is probably one of the best in the price range, and koss lifetime warranty is great... =)

Thanks for the replies I was unaware of the lifetime warranty, even if I have to pay $9 + shipping thats not a bad deal.
