  I have a KSC75's on a portapro headband and the results are fantastic. The headband tames the highs and brings out the tight, controlled bass. 
 
It's too bad more people can't won't or don't experience this 10/10 combo. 

I thought the portas had 75s on them already and the sporta pros had 35s.
 
I dont even know whats on the 40s, i thought 35s
 
its a bit confusing :p

Portapro, Sportapro, KSC 35 have the same non ti coated drivers.
 
75, ktxpro1, other titanium ones have the same driver.
 
Big ones like the UR series have bigger drivers. they're not using the tiny drivers in the big enclosures.

ah, sorry man, i didn't mean to speak for all UR series. But I do know a few have larger drivers, as do the Pro line... I bought a Pro4AAA which had much larger titanium coated drivers but i returned it since one side was quieter than the other and I liked the KTXPRO1's sound more..

yea oops the ksc75 is 45mm. So I guess the porta, sporta, ur40 also 45mm
 
still cant find on the dj100, i don't think they are 50. Though that would be cool

As long as its 45mm. It would be odd if it was smaller than the 75s. I like em better anyway, they are quite bassy with amping. Not the best, but i like em very much for vocals.

The Porta Pro limited editions seem to be available now: https://www.koss.com/pple
 
As far as I have read, the only difference apart from the colors are microphone / volume control with the cable and an included hard case. They claim that these will be "very limited" quantities. I wonder what the actual number is.
 
Seems there is a discount code as well: Use code PPLE25 for 25% off.

  I must have 150 hours or so of burn in on a new pair of PP's. They sound so good!

 
Yup these things sound good just in general.
 
Like people say that they are good for the price which is true but I think they are good in general as a pair of cans , I am not really an audiophile just enjoy decent SQ on headphones and these are just perfect.
 
You give them to the normal earbud user and their mind is blown.

I've ordered the black & gold ones! Funny thing is, I just bought my first pair of PortaPro's about 2 weeks ago, not the limited edition of course since that wasn't available... but not crazy about the look of the standard ones...

Sorry for the bump but this store has the best pads I have ever used, hands down, for Portapro/KTXPRO1/similar size Kosses. I have both their pads which are the thickest and softest and the cushion pleathers which is just awesome.
