Don't Waste Your Time or Money!

FrankD, Crutchfield
6 December 2011
  • Summary: I thought Sennheisers were supposed to be high end headphones. These are the worst sounding headphones I have ever heard. They shear the highs, overemphasize the mids and are bass shy. I'm running a Cambridge Audio Sonata CD30 with a Pro-Ject headphone amp so my equipment isn't the problem....Sennheiser what a disappointment!
  • Pros: -Nothing
  • Cons: -Sheared off Highs -Overempahsized mids -Bass shy -Uncomfortable

Disappointing In Jax

Overstock
12 June 2007
  • Summary: The headphones were too bulky. At low volume, I can still hear the sorrounding noise. The only way to keep outside noise out is cranking the volueme all tje way up which is not recommended if hearing lost is a concern. The headphones cale are also too bulky and heavy. No recommended when traveling. No in use indicator. The headphone hardness is to bulky as well.

"Awful sound quality."

By a customer from johnbracken.com, zzounds.com
25 November 2003
  • Excerpt: Weak low end, fake midrange, paint peeling highs... just awful sound quality. The people who are raving about these headphones should try the Sonys.

Breaks after a year

tombomp, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: Had two pairs and both have lost sound in the right ear within a year. The sound was good before that but that's completely unacceptable for a product of this cost. Screws don't offer access to most of the wiring.

Not for monitoring!!!

Frantisek Zustin "sound engineer & live sound..., Amazon
30 April 2010
  • Summary: I have bought these headphones over a month ago. First 24 hours I fed them with the pink noise. After some weeks, I have compared the sound with other studio headphones (Audio Technica ATH-M50 - studio monitoring headphones used all over the world). The sound difference was and still is horrible! Overdriven mids and boosted bass frequencies were the first, I noticed with HD280pro. If you want real flat frequency, don't believe Sennheiser HD280PRO!

Where is the bass

B. Cavanagh, Amazon
17 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought these on the strength that many people seem to think they are wonderful headphones and to replace my old Sennheiser HD210 which were truly excellent for the money but sadly have given up the ghost. The HD280pro's do cancel out noise and they are remarkably clear sounding but there is a complete and almost total lack of any bass or life to the sound. My in ear mobile phone headphones have more life and punch.

Not for ipod

Adrian Buxton "monkeyboy", Amazon
28 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought these primarily for use with my ipod for noise cancelling and decent sound quality on my travels. I don't know whether it is down to the quality of the recording format, but I found the noise tinny and severely lacking in depth and volume. Because of how much they cost, I sent them back rather than put up with them. The sound I get from my Sennheiser CX300s is far superior.
