Rob,

Yes, they fold, and they come in a plastic case. The padded driver
enclosures swivel at a 90 degree angle, and the headband has a joint
on
either side above each ear piece where they fold. After being folded
properly, they fit in the plastic case and the cord wraps around the
edge of
the case. Once everything is done properly, the case closes. At
first it
is a bit tricky figuring out exactly how it all fits together, but
once you
do it a time or 2 it's easy and they take up very little room.

Best regards,

Rick Alfaro

Oh Wow Rick, how do you mean re folding?? the 200's are exactly the
same
design with a different set of ear-pieces apparently. Does the
headband
fold? suppose they don't come with a case, though the cord always gets
tangled in boxes!. My brother ordered them for me, I heard his 100's,
and
he said that he'd found a closed back version, so he bought them for
me for
my birthday.

he is nice really, even though his nickname's the Mule, (Asimov fans
will
get that one. it came about first because we reckoned his farts would
destroy a planet!, and second because his face is on upside down!..

Yes, I agree. I now have both the PortaPros and the Sennheiser PX100
and
have been able to compare them. They both sound great for their price
range, but I feel the PX100s sound better, at least to me. They have
more
detail in the highs, but the bass is still deep and satisfying.
Generally,
they have a more balanced sound than the PortaPros and they fold up
like a
pair of glasses sort of.

Best regards,

I have the PX100 and it's great too.
