Well what the heck, the trend lately is appreciation threads so why not start another one . I love my Portapro2's! For $20 they have served me well for the last 1 1/2 years, and are very durable for the price... no observable signs of wear. They sound a lot better amped than directly out of a portable, which to me is a sign of a good pair of cans... not high-end, but good. I really enjoy them with music that benefits from warmth and/or a lot of bass. The bass can be a bit much, but for thinly recorded music they're quite good. They can also be EQ'ed down of course, the earpads can be modded, or 75-ohm adapter used. No flames from people who hate the bass... we all know they are very bassy, no need to harp on this point. So what do you love about your Portapro(2)s? P.S. I ordered a pair of replacement earpads from Koss.com for $5.00 shipped. They sent two pair (including the temple pads). Not sure if it was a mistake or standard practice, but very happy with that one .
