Because the Porta Pros have one dang it.
I am getting to where I almost can't listen to another pair. When I first got these, I wasn't too impressed with the sound. But after a year and even a plug being replaced, I've warmed up to the sound so much. Such a natural, detailed, and airy sound. I even don't mind that they are bass light, because the bass quality is so good. I think I'd rather have light bass that is very well defined than huge bloated bass.
The design and fit is also to die for. A very attractive product all around. A while back I talked about how the Original PX200's are better, but I have officially changed my mind after doing a ton of side by side tests...the detail of the PX 200's just cannot compete with the 200 II's. Much bigger bass and more fun initially, but not as satisfying.
Who here has a pair they actually use?
