Aren't these cheaper on Amazon? or is there a difference with the x?

They're not always cheaper on Amazon; keep that in mind. The nice thing is you can buy these that come with a bit better cable, and go on Amazon and get the hard case, almost for the retail price of the regular one that comes with an inline mic, which is usually $59.99.

Here, add $37.99 for the Porta Pro X to about $14.99 for the hard case on Amazon and you got yourself a sweet deal.

This the Koss version of the MD PPX. https://smile.amazon.com/Koss-Microphone-Remote-Headphones-Collapsible/dp/B0763T9Y4Q/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1537721263&sr=8-8&keywords=porta+pro It's also available on the Koss site for the same price ($59.99). So the MD PPX is like a $22 savings.
I really like these - the sound, the size and weight, and even the look. The only issue I have is that my ears hurt quite a bit where the pads touch after about 30 min. of listening. I think it might just be the pads, because I use the KPH30i for hours at a time without any pain or discomfort.

Anyone try any replacement pads?
i hope these are coming back. i've been wanting my partner to have higher fi headphones than what she owns and these might just work with her hearing equipment.

Sure you know they're back, and they drop all the time.
I just received my pair Porta Pro made possible Massdrop, i really blown away with the soundstage and quality of the sound.

Happy and glad to part of this community

Thanks Massdrop
Found this article on another forum. I believe the article was written around 1984 when the PP's were first released. Though some of my fellow PP fans might be interested.

This is much better than original.
Will the mic work with language program apps, where you have to speak as part of the testing and training?
Does it have a bit of noise cancelling? I wonder to buy it because it does all I want (good sound, lightweight, foldable) but I don't want people to ear my music, and I would to cancel exterior noise too. :/ do you recommend it even tough? I guess we can't use it in car or flight?

sound quality is amazing. one of the best bang for your buck headphones. there is not too much bass. for the price, quality, novelty this is an easy buy

Thanks for your answer. I was wondering about buying the AKG Y50 or The Porta pro, but Maybe I'll take the step and try this one. I hope is not too old against all those '' modern'' headphones. :)
Verrryyy nice headset, I use it mainly at work, and it simply delivers. Really light and comfortable, it packs a solid bass, for either hip hop, smooth jazz or heavy metal!

Definitely recommend this buy! There's a warranty and all!

Your other headphones will be jealous ;)

Well for Sennheiser I *was* referring to the folding compact PX-100 II, but it seems it's since been replaced with a new lineup that so far might not be quite as good. The Grado SR60e (made in Brooklyn NY!) is the other one, which is not as portable but has a similar long history of afforable performance, looks that haven't changed in 25 years, and moddability. They're twice as much as PortaPros ($80), but you're also getting twice as much headphone. For another $20 you get another $20 worth of headphone from the SR80e. Don't get them from Amazon though, you only want to get Grados through an authorized retailer in order to get the warranty.

Thanks so much, those Grados have a tight look...
seriously this small thing can beat 80% of the over the head cans here...
These seem comfortable and supremely portable. One of the headphones that won't look out of place with my uniform, too! However, I just got the Thinksound on ears... Decisions, decisions :|
How do these compare with Porta Pro (no X) available on Amazon at the same price?

The drivers are the same. Only differences would be the carrying case, colorway, and robot cable on the massdrop edition
