HI: I have been using the shure E2 for my portable rig for a good while now and just bought the Koss Portapro2 for 20.00. The E2 has a clearer sound but the Pro2 has a much more fun sound. The pro 2 has much better bass and sound stage over the E2. I paid 70.00 for the E2 and am surprised that the Pro2 at 20.00 has made me put the E2 away and now use the Portapro2 on my portable rig. The sound is a lot bigger, better bass, and better sound stage and most of all a lot more fun sounding over the E2. I also fine the Pro2 more comfortable and easer to use than the E2. I used to own the Portapro a few years ago and got away from them only to come back with the Pro2 after a lot of different headphones and earphones. I cut nickle size holes in the pads and released the mids and highs and tamed the bass on the Pro2. They are also easy to drive with my portable rig at 60 ohms. I seem to feel that the 60 ohms lets me put more power into the cans for a bigger and fuller sound. Had anyone with the E2 tried the Portapro2?
