Here they are compared and you seem to be right (the Sennheiser PX100 is
also compared):

I wonder about this. I have not compared them myself but heared
different opinions about the sound quality of SportaPro, PortaPro and
the KSC35 (the ear clips) when I was looking for head phones. So I wrote
an e-mail to Koss asking if there is a difference. They answered that
the "drivers" are the same for all three models, so I thought they only
differ in mechanical things and looking, but not in sound.

How do you know if a shop offers the Portpro, Portapro II or the IIs?
e.g. on they do not give information about this and just call
them "Porta Pro". Are they all available or are the old versions outdated?
