That's not my ears tell me. The Sportapro sound similar but not the same as the Portapro to me. The bass quantity and quality is enough for me to prefer the Portapro and be willing to pay the additional to have those.

I believe part of the difference is the semi closed nature of the Sportapro. The backer cup seems to close things in just enough that some of the clarity that's present in the Portapro just isn't there. It doesn't seem to make much of a difference in an out and about situations for me. If I use them for quiet, at home listening the difference is fairly obvious.

I agree that if you pay MSRP for the Portapro they could be considered overpriced. I've seen them on sale around $35. I got mine for less than $30 by being patient and being ready to jump on a sale as soon as the price dropped. At that price I think they're worth having.
