Where can I get Porta Pros and/or SportaPros in person? Anyone know of a place that carries 'em? I've only seen KSC55 and KSC75 in stores.

I think I've seen Circuit City carrying them.

Most places don't seem to have alot of headphones on display any more..it seems to be i guess 99% online sotres that have them.I got my portapros on amazon for $26.34.good price in my opinion.being me i'd rather see them in stores and iff possiable try them on and see how they fit me.

Here in PHILA they sell them at TOWER RECORDS (like Spyro said) but they are in bubble wrap so you can't try them first. Also they cost 50.00. I bought several pair there over the years but my last pair I bought at AMOZON for 32.00 on line.

Tower does have them, though they are like $50. Why not get them online? You people without credit cards need to get one. They will give them to anyone these days, just with a horrible APR if you have little/bad credit. Just pay it in full every month and you will have the advantage of good/cheaper online prices. Retail stores screw you up the wazoo. It isn't like Tower has the advantage of auditioning, they will NOT let you listen to them before you buy...same goes for Circuit City as far as I know. Though they might let you return them for store credit...but then you have yourself tied up with cash 'invested' in Tower. All you can do then is buy some CD's at HIGH MARKUP.

Moral, get a credit card (if you don't have one...seems to be the common 'excuse'), and buy online.

I really just wanted an excuse to go buy some in person tonight; something to do.
