Better than I thought. They sound very good. They are a little fragile, but for the price, not bad.

Very Comfortable & Worthwhile!

I'm no audiophile, but I purchased these headphones after some research on some relatively cheap headphones with good audio quality, leading me to these headphones. I've seen mainly good things, but I saw a few iffy reviews so I was unsure whether or not they'd be what I imagined, but I can safely say they lived up to my expectations, if not surpassed them. The design is my style, the ear padding doesn't make my ears sweat like some other ear cups, and the sound quality is good, with relatively good bass, something that was an important factor for me. I'd tried some beats while journeying in person for the perfect headphones, and I can see these are far, far better than any beat solos. I also bought some $101 dollar noise cancelling headphones and these far surpassed those as well. I'm overall extremely pleased with my purchase, I would in fact recommend these to anyone looking for great headphones on a budget.

Koss Porta Pro Jr 20 years lat

I had a pair of these headphones over 20 years ago and they were years ahead of their time! Now with Bose, Dr Dre beats, and Skullcandy dominating the market, the Koss Porta Pro Jr are still holding their own over 20 years later. Just received my new pair of Porta Pro Jr's, and they are still just as good as 20 years ago!

Great price and great sound

Entertaining and well worth it

The Koss PortaPro are outstanding for their price and are entertaining. Some headphones are technically more advanced and cost more, but are not entertaining. These are enjoyable; excellent sound and portable. They are not meant to compete with Sennheiser's HD650 which are also entertaining, cost over 10 times as much, and sound a little better in some ways -- but who cares? Enjoyable is enjoyable. When I'm listening to these while I'm out, I don't miss any other cans because I'm too busy enjoying the music. My only con is minor and not about the headphones. The con is about the porta-bag that comes with them; a little bigger would be much easier to get the folded headphones into the bag. The bag reminds me of those silly test questions in school: design a container of minimum material that will hold a certain shape and volume. With a little thought and a lot of practice, I've learned a way to do it: hold the hook & catch together when bagging. Your results may vary. But even with the bag being a tight fit, the sound and portability are worth it. I recommend these.

My original pair lasted about 30 years.

These are the best portable headphones for the money. I owned an original pair of these headphones dating back to the mid 80s and they lasted about 30 years. I finally had to replace them in 2014 after the left channel went out. Here's my tip on increasing the reliability, add a drop of super glue where the cable meets each ear piece and where the cable meets the jack. This will greatly reduce the chance of you breaking the cable if you accidentally pull on the cable too hard, which I've done numerous times. I've had my current pair for eight years and the only maintenance I do is to replace the foam ear cushions every so often as they tend to wear out over time.

Better than I expected

The sound beats way more expensive larger head phones. I wish the build quality was a little better, but for the price it's acceptable.

question

Given their impedance is 60 Ohms (most portable headphones have low impedance - less than 30 ohms), will they sound loud enough from a cell phone?
Asked by: George
These headphones are extremely efficient and you will not have problems getting enough power out of them from standard PC headphone jacks, cel phones, etc. They sound great. It will be one of the best headphone purchases you've made under $100. The only thing is that the metal headband easily catches one's hair. So be careful when removing them! I have pulled hairs out!
