I Love the Porta Pros. I know most people comment on Sennheiser HD6** being the quintessential headphone, but I feel this is the true starting point for a budding headphone enthusiast.

Here’s a picture of my beloved Porta Pros (with Yaxi pads).

Oooh, I really like the gold.

Yeah, I do too. When they released the Anniversary Editions I had to have one! The other Anniversary Edition is Beige (which look pretty awesome with the Orange Yaxi Pads).

Sweet! Did you order yours after I posted my pics of my son’s pair? I’d like to think I may have influenced you. :blush:

You mentioned in the HEDDphone thread the other colorways, in Europe they had (you can still find some) White w/ Black, Red w/ Black, Black w/ Red drivers, and All Black (similar to the Drop version).

Yup! :laughing:
And I have “nicer” headphones, but these little guys are special.

I’ve had my KPP for about 8 months. Got the Yaxi pads about 2 weeks ago.

It’s amazing what the Yaxi pads do to open up the drivers. I received a Dragonfly Cobalt for Christmas and the Porta Pros really shine with it. I’ll be doing a ‘formal’ review on the DFC later.

I look forward to it!

I was a Yaxi pad sceptic, but for the price I figured why not. Better bass, a more even mid and treble frequency response. Moar komfortz. Win/win.

I usually drive mine via dongle from my OnePlus 7 Pro. I’ve been thinking about the BTR3 or something similar, but it’s like… Is $60 worth only kinda getting rid of the cable issue? Meh. Still undecided.

I’m digging the different colors of the special editions!

Also I am a convert! These for the price should be the starting point of budding audiophiles!

I’ve been ‘championing’ these for a while. That’s why it’s my Avatar!

If you are an audiophile, and you don’t own these, then you’re not an audiophile.

Haha! And I hate that term, but I completely agree. :laughing:

I agree. The term is almost derogatory. I consider myself to be a sarcastic (and sometimes cranky) audio enthusiast.

I prefer music Lover :heart_eyes:, but audio enthusiast works too.

@metal571 Can you post the Porta Pro Mods you mentioned to @DarthPool? I’d love for you to post the info here.

Thanks!
