The Armchair Sound Engineer

Some people like to sit back and close their eyes and get lost in the same music time and time again. Maybe it’s because every time they listen, they can hear something different or notice a subtlety they haven’t before in their favorite classic rock tunes. So, what do you gift this person?

The Sound History Student

There are many reasons the technology of Porta Pro has remained unchanged since 1984. We’ve refused to mess with a good thing and the Porta Pro have a developed cult following all over the world. Earlier this week, it was ranked as one of the best headphones by cNET. Now, with a whole new generation of devotees, the Porta Pro continues to deliver a big sound in a portable package. Lightweight and foldable, the Porta Pro travels nicely in a book bag, which might help to explain their popularity with the college set. With a nod to retro electronica, and an ear on the future, the new album “Hurry Up We’re Dreaming” by M83 is a great add-on gift to the Porta Pro. M83 uses a very broad palette of sounds and our Porta Pro scores high marks in capturing them all.
