the best in ear headphones are sennheiser cx300-ii. they are SO FKN clear and the bass is excellent, no distortion whatsoever. comine this with voodoo sound and the right poweramp eq, it is the best sound quality i have heard through headphones. they also fit in ear perfectly and never fall out.

I now have a set of Yuin PK3's...actually got them to use while trying to get pieces to mod the portapros so I can wear them longer than 15 mminutes.

The Yuins are downright good. My only negative comment is that the plug strain relief is plainly inadequate. It is thin and short. I have a tablet with a jack that really holds onto the inserted plug, and it requires EXTREME care to remove the Yuin plug. There is just not enough there to hold on to, and it is very easy for your grip to slide down onto the wire while pulling it out.

Just received replacement earpads from ebay vendor to put onto my Koss Portapro's. They are made for Sennheiser PX200, but are exactly correct size.

Suggestion was from someone on here. Thanks--they are MUCH more comfortable and were only $6.95 US shipping included (from Hong Kong though) --still only took 12 days to arrive.

If you have Koss Portapto's and want to improve the comfort without having to do the manual work of some of the mods, this is an easy direct replacement.

I own a pair of Koss portapros. They are excellent, the sound quality is very nice and they are great while running.

I also own a pair of skullcandy earbuds, and I wouldn't recommend them to anybody. Very bad audio quality overall.

Good to hear (ba-dum-bump) that you got a fix working for you. I had a pair of PX200s -- if you play around with how you place them over your ears, you'll find a sweet spot that seals and maximizes blocking outside noise. This might work on KPPs with those pads.

Question: what differences do you hear in the sound with that combo?

Interesting question. I am not an audiophile, but definitely "hear" when the sound is "not good enough."

Your question makes me think. Here's my subjective answer: I have not noticed a significant difference in the sound quality (remember--not an expert). It is still excellent. But I am quite sure there is noticeably less intrusion of ambient noise. It does not filter as well as tight-fitting in-ears, but I don't like those--for my use, hearing my name called is better...wife doesn't slap me when I don't answer.

These, as you know, are not big, soft, puffy rings. They are small, soft, slightly puffy rings--as they must be being on-ear diameter rather than over-ear diameter.

Comfort is MUCH improved over the stock foam though. That was my objective, and it is achieved. I would encourage anyone owning Koss Portapros to order some.
