How do the Koss Portapros compare to Grado SR60i?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for something portable that sounds great for Metal/Thrash/Punk Rock. The SR60i's sound absolutely amazing but are kind of annoying to take out because of the long cord. I was thinking of the Portapros because they are cheap and supposedly sound good. Are the mids as forward as they are on the SR60i? Thanks in advance.

Got the Porta Pro's in today and after about 6 hours of burn in, they sound pretty damn good. They don't have as much detail as the SR60i's but that is ok, seeing how they will be used for portability. I'm actually shocked that they sound this good. I did not expect these little headphones to sound so big. Great job Koss.

No, they're not.

 

The PortaPro's sound great.

I almost always keep a set of them in my shoulder bag,

which goes with me pretty much everywhere.

 

At $35.00 or so, they're one of the great values in headphones.

IMHO.  It's almost impossible to go wrong with them.
