Koss PortaPro Alternative

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Are there any good Koss PortaPro alternatives? Basically it has to be open, portable, good bass and comfortable to wear.

Hmmm closest alternative I can think of is the Sennheiser PX100 (or the PX100-II if you can't find them)

 

Still loved my Portapros though

I had px 100-ii. it hurt my ears.

Maybe the Sennheiser PX95? It has softer and larger earpads and more housing articulation.

Is it comfortable to wear for a long time? Also, I heard the bass is weak. I listen to a lot of dubstep so I'm not sure if these would be suitable.

The PX95 is very comfortable. I often wear them for several hours.

They don't lack bass at all. In fact, to my ears they have slightly more bass than I would like indoors.

I'm also looking for some comfortable replacements for my Sportapros.

Why do you even need alternatives to the portapro? Great little headphone!

I bought one. Hopefully I'll like it.

How about AKG K420 or Jays V-Jays? A bit more expensive than Portapro, but both are really good.

Do the V-Jays have a removable cable?

Maybe it's because I'm not used to bass but I found the bass in PortaPros very tiring for my ears. Sending them back, lol.

Unfortunately not.
