Our take on the Koss Porta Pro KTC by Crutchfield's David Brown
A legend is reborn
Koss introduced the unique Porta Pro headphones more than 25 years ago. Known for its unusual look, these unmistakable on-ears are better known for producing terrific sound for a great price. The Porta Pro KTC maintains that legacy with its rich detail, impactful bass and open sound that is sure to impress. These headphones may look funky, but they feel great on your ears, fitting securely against your temples thanks to the extra padding and adjustable Comfort Zone settings. The Porta Pro KTC also folds up for convenient storage in the included carrying pouch.
In-line remote and microphone for Apple devices
The Porta Pro KTC includes an in-line remote and microphone designed for use with the iPhone®, iPod® and iPad®. You can make hands-free calls with your iPhone, as well as control your music and adjust volume on any of your Apple devices. The remote functionality combined with the Porta Pro KTC's excellent sound quality, comfort and portability make these headphones a smart buy.
This is my 3rd headphone with mic and I have found these to be much better than the Sennheiser ones i bought last year. Very stylish but a litttle flimsy looking. Very lightweight with superberb audio quality me and my callers. Like KOSS said, "Hearing is Believing"
