    Just received the Massdrop Porta Pro X. Very initial impressions felt a little veiled using iDSD Black Label, but I've also been listening to Cypherus Audio's Campfred 2 a lot lately, so I can see where I'd get that impression.

    My chi-fi IEMs broke relatively shortly after purchase, so I went ahead and got some PortaPros. Disappointed that I missed out on the Massdrop deal, because the inline mic and thicker cable/y-joint is definitely preferred. And the sleek all-black look is cool.

    But, Amazon has them on sale for 28 dollars here. So I picked up a pair.

    Koss Porta Pro was my first better headphone, and I was experimenting with them a lot with kramer mod and various earpad mods. I loved the way they sounded, but I eventually bought more expensive and better headphones and forgot porta pros. Last year I interested in porta pros again and I bought black edition from local shop. I did kramer mod and made better earpads aswell, but I were quite underwhelmed how they sounded. I of course thought that I simply had "outgrew" of them because I have listened so much higher end phones. But I definitely remembered they should've sounded better than that. Anyway I put them aside for quite long time, until recently I thought maybe I should apply some proper burn-in, and yesterday night I still wasn't pleased with their sound, and I picked up my beyer dt150 and listened them couple hours´and left portas playing on my desk with over my preferred volume level. After I stopped listening my beyers and was about to go to sleep, I checked out how portas sound now. What a surprise, sound was improved pretty much now. Bass had calmed down, became more precise and mids and treble were a lot better, refined and clear. Soundstage feels more airy. Feels like now my porta pros sound like they did back in my early headphone days! I never ever have noticed such effect in burning-in headphones.

    NO WAY !!!!!!
    Holy **** this is exactly what I wanted. Wonder if these would work with PC and Ps4. Any ideas?

    Waiting for proper review. if these sound like real deal then we might have the best headphone ever

    It's tempting. It's awfully tempting, but something like a Fiio BTR1 would work too, and I already have a couple Porta Pros.

    I assume lifetime warranty as well? These are a steal then.

    EDIT: NOPE. One year warranty.

    I think one year, that's standard for all Koss headphones with a battery -- so that's not really new. I have a pair of Koss BT540i over-ear wireless headphones.
