Traveling With Koss
If you’re someone who travels a lot, or even looking for a gift for someone who does, a good pair of headphones should be at the top of your list of travel essentials.
Every traveler has a slightly different set of needs when it comes to headphones, so finding the right pair can often be cumbersome, taking a lot of time and research, and eventually leading to frustration and confusion. Things like Noise Isolation, Comfort, Bluetooth®, Microphones, Phone Connectivity, Portability and Battery Life all come into play when choosing the pair that's right for you.
To make things easier, we have put together a list of Koss products laying out the features that are often most important to travelers, making it easier for you to find the perfect pair.
If Portability, Comfort and Audio Quality are at the top of your list, the iconic Porta Pro® Classic won't let you down. For decades, Porta Pro® has been the headphone of choice for travelers around the world.
Known for its high-level of comfort, the Porta Pro® has adjustable temporal pads to relieve pressure on the ears. Its lightweight, open-air cushions for hear-through sound keep listeners aware of their surroundings while delivering exceptional sound. The oxygen free copper voice coils and dynamic elements allow the Porta Pro® to deliver rich bass and a remarkably wide frequency response.
Whether you’re listening at home or on the go, the Koss Porta Pro® delivers all the excitement of a live performance; and for those who need to stay connected, Porta Pro® KTC offers a built in Microphone and On-Board Audio Controls.
