it's cheaper to buy the 'non-amazon' ones for £12.49 with postage comes to £16.99
amazon.co.uk/Kos…8-1

Sounds great.
But would prefer buying directly from amazon.:D

I've had a pair of these headphones for around 9 years and they have been great. Sound quality is excellent.

First, I have tried a huge number of headphones and this Koss model has definately the best sound. They aren't the most comfortable headphones, though. The head band pulls your hair, for instance, but if you "fix" it in one position and wrap it in tape (electrical PVC tape is best), you can avoid the problem. It makes them less portable, though. The looks are in the eye of the beholder. I dont mind, I'm not fashion-conscious.

BTW, to the OP: I recommend to change the post to the direct amazon price of £16.99, otherwise your post might get deleted, since marketplace sellers are sometimes not allowed (this seems arbirtary and probably depends on the mod, though).

It's not marketplace, it's amazon jersey (indigo starfish)

thats thew wrong pic - you are showing the 25th anniversary ones which are 40-50quid
the 17 quid (17.37 from amazon now) are a more garish blue unless changed (doubt it) as below

imo these are good but they are ugly and as mentioned above the hair pulling is very annoying (my hair is very short also) the carry case seems far too small also.
px100 which can be had around this price at times are imo a better buy as they sound more clean and neutral (portapro slightly more bass) - more comfy, dont pull hair and have a nice carry case.
good deal but id wait and buy px100
edit: seems px100 are a tenner more atm so id go for these

These are great. Excellent sound and they are surprisingly resilient. If you're looking for ''cheap'' headphones, stop looking, you won't get better than these.

I agree, these are not pretty but just about the best you can get for sub £20

Likely to be fakes.

Please be careful! hotukdeals.com/mis…75/ (about PortaPro fakes all over the internet).

The black pair without the cloth wire are called "Black Beauty", but I've no idea where you get them in the UK. There's a non-25th Anniversary edition black pair (cloth wire) which is only sold at BestBuy in the US.
