OP-1 is the all-in-one portable Synthesizer, Sampler and Controller. With additional features like the FM Radio and a G-Force sensor for pitch and bend effects. Beside a fresh and creative approach to sequencing with multiple choice of sequencers, you just have to love the OP-1’s built-in Tape feature.

To kick this thing off, I’ve compiled a few boards of 1) inspiration from current “designerly” headphones 2) the PortaPro timeline of products and I’ve identified 3) headphone user groups. I’ve also quickly noted pluses and minuses for these headphones. This feedback is derived from 6 years of personal use and online headphone forum discussions. Pssst, goto the PP3 project page->
I've always been a fan of the Koss PortaPro headphones. They were designed in the early 1980's and have been through a few revisions over the past 25 years. The original designs are still the best. They are an open ear headphone design, with outstanding sound. These are perfect for use walking down the street or working in an office. The PortaPros are comfortable for long term use, yet fold up to a compact pocket size.
The PortaPro's styling is charmingly vintage. My goal is to update the design and function while respecting the heritage appearance and features. This project will be posted as a series of steps in the order i complete them. At the end, I will post a complete project.
