Pros:Excellent sound. Great Portability. Well fitting. Outside-the-box design.
Cons:Retract quite tightly. Mind your fingers.
I've been a music aficionado (and casual musician) most of my life. Believe me, I'm anal retentive about my sound quality. These cans are a freak of science. I've listened to headphones 3 times the price, and still go back to the mighty Porta Pros.
They have a full, sweet sound that belies there size and price point. Seriously, the more you listen to these babies the more you will appreciate them. I've had mine for about 3 years and they haven't missed a beat. Still in excellent condition, and to think they have a lifetime warranty. A true testament of their quality IMO.
And the looks. Hey, who wants to look like everybody else. They are snug, quite comfortable, and quite retro-funky. So you might loose a strand of hair occasionally, but it's well worth it. You must own a pair of these amazing little headphones to really understand how lovable they are. Simply AWESOME.
