Well, it's about time! I can finally see the red and blue ear cups..."red" for my red ear and "blue" for my blue ear. Thank you Koss!
I have to use the Treble Booster EQ preset whenever I listen to these headphones. Also, the rubber (or is it silicone?) on the headband is a dust / dirt / debris magnet. Thankfully it's removable. Still a decent pair of headphones for $20 though.
So what are these like compared to the PortaPro's?

To my ears, VERY similar sound. I'd say the KPH30i is a little less forward in the mids, has a touch less bass, very similar highs, but not quite as open sounding. It's a great sounding headphone, and it's $20. If you could somehow make them feel the same on a persons head a lot of people probably wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between the two. I think the PP is a bit more resolving, and KPH is a bit smoother. Kind of like an HD600 vs an HD650, but the difference isn't nearly as stark (it's really quite minimal). Comfort is excellent, cable/remote/mic is the same as the MD Porta Pro X. They aren't collapsible, and you don't get a storage bag. Also, I've only been able to find replacement earpads on the Koss site and they're $5 a pair (Black and Blue available) compared to 3 pairs of PP pads from Amazon for $5-$7. You get the same lifetime warranty, but as long as MD carries them it almost makes sense to grab a new pair if you do break them. I ordered one of each color.

Thanks. I think I'll pass on them. They don't really fill a niche that I don't already have filled in my stuff.
Thanks for adding the other colors choices!
I want to see a Drop for this Sennheisser, the HD 414. .http://www.tonepublications.com/old-school/sennheiser-hd-414-and-424/

I'd love a pair of those! I may have gone for this https://www.koss.com/retro-rummage/hv-1a but they're out of stock. I had a similar model in the late 70's or early 80's.

How about the 424? That would be my preference.
When was the last time this dropped? The portapro is almost constantly selling, but I haven't seen these in a while.

The Portapro is an "In Stock" item for Massdrop. So Yeah, constantly selling.
Wow, for $8 more we could have gotten this in a few days rather then a whole month.

Finally got mine yesterday. They are super awesome. They feel comfortable to wear, sound amazing, and I saved a few bucks.
So, I was looking at the picture of this thing and I was it just made me curious about something: Does anybody else think these headphones looks like they were designed to be used with an original Gameboy and Pokemon Red or Blue versions?

Koss has a great retro aesthetic
Do the white and grey come with the upgraded massdrop exclusives found on the tan?

There are no Massdrop-specific features for the KPH30i, just the colorway. All KPH30is have the cable microphone + strain relief.
dwane5
Yes. The only differences are in the colorway. I have the grey, white, and the MD version.
