I just got a used PortaPro 2 and would like to replace the foam pads (a bit worn/oily/hairy). Where can I purchase them?

Thanks in advance!

Woooo, I get to answer first!

If you go to Koss' website for the Portapro:
under "May we suggest" they have ear cushions listed for $5.

Or you can call them and ask: 1-800-USA-KOSS

How do the PP2000's vary from the regular PP's?

The Porta Pro 2000 compared to the Porta Pro plays a bit louder and I found the Bass to be a little tighter. They really were sweet sounding headphones. The main problem I have with them are that they are very fragile. They fold and are collapsible, but the drivers separate from the headband very easily. Also, the drivers are bigger than the ones on the porta pros and it's hard as heck to find the right sized replaceable ear cushions and Koss doesn't carry them anymore.

I will try to post a picture of them soon if anyone is interested in seeing them. I'm interested to know if anyone else here has these phones?

I took the foams off a KSC12... some junk-can that came OEM with my Son's yamaha digital drum pad kit. They are fluffy-er than the standard Koss ones.

These from RS fit the KSC35/75 perfectly.

I own the "original" Portapro and bought some replacement pads from Koss last year. The current Koss replacement pads for the Portapro fit just fine on the original.

but no details on size
will go check them out today
hope they fit well



I'm afraid to say that those particular earpads are for earbuds, not headphones. These are your best bet for separate replacement earpads, although I have no idea if they'll fit on Koss' headphones. Haven't been to a Source for a very long time.

You could just mail them back to Koss and they'll replace the pads for you? I did this with my PortaPros because the earpads as well as the temple pieces were falling apart, and I didn't know where to get replacements (especially the temple foam pieces).
