Not What I Expected

Zo, Crutchfield
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Previously, I had Sony MDR-V600. Aside from always feeling too big (and thus, not "tight"), they lasted well over a decade of daily use and the sound quality wasand still is superior, especially in comparison to my recently purchased Sennheiser HD280 Pro phones. In fact, I still have the Sony phones and will keep patching them up with electrical tape and ignore the foam shedding near the ears. I will miss the the Sony pair, already do.

Don't buy this model ... higher quality a must.

Maggi, Crutchfield
21 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased for my kids (16 & 13) for listening to iTunes, iPod etc. They are okay. I purchased two pairs. The headphones are heavy to wear, do not block out surrounding sound and their sound output is okay. Would I suggest them, no I would not. You get what you pay for! If you want to use often, spend the money and get a better quality headphone.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Too heavy, poor sound quality.

"Great 'phones...until you use them more than once."

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
22 February 2005
  • Excerpt: The sound is decent, when the headphones actually WORK. I'm on my second pair of the 280's, and there seems to be a chronic problem with the wires either shorting out or something. I was in radio using these 'phones for years, and treated them like a baby; yet, they still would end up shorting out, a piercing sound would appear every so often; otherwise, I like the lack of mid-range. High end/low end is what I like, and this set delivers...when they're working.

  • Excerpt: I have been using, pfffiou ... remember, 6 or 7 years maybe? - I came to forget that part of my gear so I used it there. Not tried other models before it was my first headphone "pro". I was looking for a good headset to call (I was on Reason at the time) and <strong>mix,</strong> who physically can not afford to have monitoring s...

The least impressive Sennheisers headphones I've heard

Mr. Christian Hoskins, Amazon
13 August 2007
  • Summary: I bought these headphones as an upgrade to my Sennheiser HD270s, which are also closed back headphones. I was hoping that the additional specification of the HD280s would provide better sound quality. However, I have been disappointed to find that the HD280s have poorer bass performance and cloudier sound that the HD270s. I was also disappointed to find that the connecting cable can't be unplugged, unlike most of the other Sennheisers I've owned.

Schlechte Verarbeitung

Maddin, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Diese Kopfhörer wäre an sich ganz in Ordnung, wenn er besser verarbeitet wäre. Ich benutze ihn seit ca. 2 Jahren als schalldichten Kopfhörer im Büro (ca. 1h am Tag) und inzwischen ist sowohl das rechte Ohrpolster als auch die Kopfpolsterung kaputt. Das ändert nichts am Klang, den ich als 'ordentlich' bezeichnen würde, ist aber doch enttäuschend für einen Kopfhörer dieser Preisklasse. Zudem ist er nach einigen Minuten relativ unbequem.

Pas essayé d'autres modèles avant, c'était mon premier casque "pro". Je cherchais un bon casque pour composer (j'étais sur Reason à l'époque) et <strong>mixer</strong>,...

Klang gut, Verarbeitung/Design schlecht

Veit Zimmermann "cal!?to", Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: Ich hatte den Kopfhörer ein Jahr lang im Einsatz, bis ich unzufrieden genug war, mir einen Neuen zu kaufen. Positiv: Der Klang war tadellos, soweit ich das damals beurteilen konnte. Ich nutze ihn schon eine Weile nicht mehr und habe erst kürzlich angefangen mich intensiv mit Kopfhörern zu beschäftigen. Das Spiralkabel ist äußerst praktisch, um sich mal etwas von der Soundquelle wegzubewegen. Neutral: Der Sitz und dementsprechende Tragekomfort war okay.
