Go to Richer Sounds. They have Sportapros for bugger all, under £30 I think

The 'S'???


Seriously, I couldn't tell you, but I could swear that the Sportas are the more expensive of the two (I think its something to do with the headband design ~ but they use the same drivers)

As Bangraman says, Richer sounds seem to stock them for not a lot of cash ~ give them a go

The Portapros and the Sportapros actually use the same drivers. The sound is very similar except the Portas have a little better extension in the high-range (the structure of Porta's cups is more open - perhaps this is the reason for the sound difference) . The head band is different - Sporta's can be changed also to back-neck position .The Portas have slightly better built quality and are the more expensive model between the two - list price 49$ against 29$ the Sportas. The Portas could be bought at KOSS's site some time ago with big reduction - around 20$+shipping, I think(?) - I don't know about now... The Sportas can also be had at Radioshack under the brand-name Optimus45. They both are great deals - value for money and musically speaking. I have three pairs - Portas, Sportas and Optimus - portable sets for me and my kids - and if I were to buy only one, although the sound difference is not big, I would buy the Portas over the Sportas...(it reminds me about Senns 580 vs. 600) just to be sure I'm on the safe side...
