What a timeless masterpiece of photography...

Can't see what those things are - Portapros?

Right out of the box, with no EQ, they sound pretty good coming from a Clip+. I'll probably do some slight EQ-ing once I've had them long enough to do comparisons to my other 'phones, but these first few days, anyways, I'll run them flat. It's possible they will settle in a little....I don't think that "burn-in" really does very much to headphones.

Going strictly from memory, the upper mids do seem a bit more audible than the PX100's used to, which is a good thing....I always had to bump them up with the PX100's.

Over the next few days, I will let myself get a better feel for them before I really comment further, but so far, so good!

@dfkt, yes, Portapros.

With no EQ, I prefer the Portapros. Not a huge difference.....it may be as simple as the fact that I prefer the sound of open-backed 'phones to closed, because I always liked the PX100's just a little bit better than the Flats too.

Congrats on the PortaPros! I don't really like the design, they look so uncomfortable! How's the comfort?

@McDougal.....I think they would suck for people with long hair. They shrink right up when I take them off, but when I expand them to put them on, I can see what I've read about before, where they could pull someone's hair. That's not an issue for me, since I just buzzed mine again last week with the 1/8" (3.175mm) attachment on my clippers. But once on, they're comfortable enough......more so than the Flats with those pleather earpads.

Glad you like 'em, Marv! Although I do prefer the Flats, the PortaPros are pretty great 'phones.

Love the irony there^^



A great sounding combo, even without either of the EQ apps I have.

Yeah it would probably just be for fun, modding with a new cable and some resistors possibly and some bright yellow pads .

I should have put it up on every device you touched and just left it for customers to find.

New workout phones. They were apparently a hit at CES, so I picked them up. Yurbuds Ironman, which were "designed" by a tri-athlete to never fall out.



Initially disappointed though.
