Uuuh, no idea, Ultrazino mentioned Dusseldorf enough to make it stick in my mind I guess. Any info is welcome (even if it's invite-only).

I think Sephino is the man to ask...

Koss Porta Pro Classic received!

 

Didn't quite expect the "Classic", neither did I expect that box..

 


Not sure if legit, most checks say yes.. but hey, descided to use them already before checking the impendance (don't have the meter here), and defenitly liking the sound. Even though the soundstage seems a bit wonky at times. More pics (with the possible non-legit things) at http://plus.google.com/b/100237886830411232700/115155831297720889377/posts/fRJxNvLaDFK.

 

Edit: the right ear/speaker seems to have some trouble sometimes, as if it is loose and starts to sound distorted/blown up.. shaking the headphones helps weird enough!

A friend of mine is looking for a new portable headphone. Sound quality isn't the most important. He wants good isolation and 'normal' looks. So the PortaPro's are out of the picture.

 

He found the Sennheiser HD228. Is this a good choice?

Funny how "a friend" always implies budget. :D I thought Dr. Dre fixed that...

post #12 of 46

Well I convinced him (and most of my other friends) to not go to good ol dre. When I was looking for headphones I couldn't help but notice that the more bang for your buck headphones are, the more ugly they become. I'm talking about Koss Portapro here. I find them prety cool looking but you won't find these on a non 'audiophile' head.

 

By the way, that guy made 110 million dollars just because of his headphones. And P. Diddy made somewhere around 42 million with selling batteries.

 

Anyway, it's really a shame that they don't care about sound quality. When I started taking my headphone one the go, around 1.5 year ago, everybody thought I was a fool. Now I see the huge amount of disadvantages of portable headphones (and iems) so i'm going custom. Let's just hope that will fix al my damned problems so I can take one pair of equipment with me and walk, run, take the bus or whatever without another anoying problem.

My guess is this whole trend about headphones will stop in 2 or 3 years. Altough I must say heaphones did become more beautifull. eg. the Momentum or Philips uptown. Please note that I am NOT talking about all the beats by whatever crap that's on the market.

Let me know (or us, I mean) how that works out and where you got them etc! Not planning to do that, but damn interested nonetheless!

post #15 of 46

I will let you know! Shells are currently being made so it shouldn't take that long anymore. I will let you know everthing about it when I've tested them :)

 

Oh and I found out about that p diddy thing in veronica magazine(tv guide), they showed some bijbaantjes of some rappers.
