Versatile headphones for any activity The Koss SportaPro portable headphones offer portability, flexibility, and a headband designed to be worn either atop or behind the head. Equally well suited for use at work or on a jogging trail, the SportaPro's open, foam-covered ear cups allow for ambient environmental sounds to be heard, which can be helpful in a recreational environment. The SportaPro's weight is a mere 2.2 ounces, and the headphones boast a frequency response of 15 to 25,000 Hz, delivering (on paper, at least) quite a bit more bass than most home speakers can. Impedance is 60 ohms, with less than a 0.2 percent distortion and sensitivity of 103 dB SPL (with a 1 mW signal). The SportaPro stereophones are collapsible and come with a carrying case, as well as both 0.125-inch and 0.25-inch jacks.

VALUE: I am not an audiophile, so I wouldn’t spend more than 30 dollars on something that will soon be lost or chewed by my cats. So it is a good value for the price.
FIT: It is really tight as it was designed to stay in place during exercise, which makes it less comfortable than I expected. I was expecting something similar to Koss KSC75. If you have a larger head than the average as I do, tightness can be irritating. And my hat size is 7 ¼’’, which is large, not even extra-large.
OTHER: You can fold it into a compact form and carry in its case, which is great. But if you position it wrong the metal hook used for the folding mechanism will press against the skin of your ear (see pictures).
I somehow still like it despite the fact that I had to use pliers and some force to make it fit my head.
I've got other headphones in this price range that have lasted me for 25 years and been dropped, whipped off my head, fallen into puddles and subjected to every other kind of abuse and still work fine. There's no excuse for these headphones to still be so cheaply built after they've been on the market for 20 years. These break points could have easily been re enforced.
And sure, they have a lifetime warranty, but every time I exercise that I'm charged $10.00 for "handling and shipping" plus it costs me $10 to mail them to the repair depot.
Lately, I've taken to re-enforcing the points where the wires enter the earpieces with Sucru. So far, that's been a great help in increasing the lifespan of these great-sounding, but shoddily constructed headphones.
Fortunately, whoever engineered these headphones spent their design budget where it counts - the sound. Put simply, the SportaPros sound better than any headphones in this price range have a right to. The word that immediately came to mind when I first tried them out was "clean". Everything comes through with superb clarity, good stereo separation and decent warmth. I really like that these headphones give me deep, rich bass without having to jam something in my ears. As an added bonus, they trigger the high impedance mode on my LG V10, and as a result I never have to turn the volume up more than halfway.
A couple minor quibbles - it took some adjustments to get them to fit comfortably, and there are no inline controls. However, at this price I'm not complaining.
If you're an audiophile on a budget, I can't recommend these headphones highly enough.
I directly compared this with the Sony MDR-ZX300AP Sound Monitoring Headphones (2x the price) and pair of Panasonic light weight headphones (1/2 the price). The Sony and this Koss had fantastic sound quality. Of the two the Koss was better, first it had greater clarity of sound and spoken word was more distinct and less muddy. Additionally this one was louder at he same volume setting. All else being equal a louder headphone indicates more money was put into the magnet and sound coupling efficiency-- hinting at the good engineering. The slightly cheaper panasonics were no match in sound quality, compactness, construction quality, though they get good marks for being the lightest (and thus highly comfortable for casual listening)
Unlike the typical modern style of headphones this one has a plain (adjustable) spring metal bar over the head. This was actually slightly more comfortable than the Sony for the simple reason it gripped my ears more firmly so the top bar did not have to sit on my head-- something I find to be very uncomfortable. Now I've have more comfortable over the ear cans with padded head bars and also even more comfortable on ear ones as well but these were quite satisfactory while being much less bulky or heavy than heavily padded cans
The spring metal is not to make it cheap but is actually an engineering innovation. First, it's adjustable and heavy duty. This is to support the feature that when you fold this thing up you can compress then head bar. it becomes a tight coiled spring and there are two little hooks on the ear peice hinges that hold it tightly coiled. The ear peices then hinge into this folded state and the whole thing fits in a the tiniest space I've ever seen for headphones with only two hinge points. (your typical folding headphones either have more fiddly hinges to break or are novelty items with fragile plastic swivel joints that won't hold up to travel abuse in your backpack. others that use the same spring metal style are more flimsy and usualy cheap all over/)
The only thing on these that looks flimsy is the foam ear coverings. They are thin, feel delicate and I expect I will tear them or they will oxidize and wear out. I see they actually sell new coverings so this is probably why.
Now the styling of these is definitely weird and combined with the metal head peice makes them look throwback if you set then next to a beefy Beats or Bose headphone. But I'd say the engineers defintiely triumphed here. It sounds good, it is rugged, it's compact and it's reasonably comfortable. The price is remarkably low for such quality.
They put their money in these were it counted. They stole design styles from cheaper headphones but toughened them up and paired them with quality components. I really wasn't expecting these to be better than the Sony monitors but they were.
these of course can't match the audio isolation of a quality branded over-the-ear noise canceling headphone but for $20 these are as good as you can get.
