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.
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!
Summary: love the feel and width of the sound coming out . very comfortable during long sessions great on outside noise reduction. my only issue is the low freqs not enough room for the low end but over all they are ok !
Summary: Nice sound but way too tight on my head. I had a set of Sennheiser's before and they were the most comfortable pair I have ever had. So I went with a pair from them again. This is why buying online is not always the best. No chance to test them out first.
I will like see reviews based on experience over a longer period ...

Summary: I notice that most of the positive reviews are based on first impressions concerning the looks and "sound quality" of these headphones. I will like see reviews based on experience over a longer period of time. Just about 3 months ago I bought 2 pairs of Sennheiser headphones ( HD 205 & HD 280 PRO).
Summary: I bought these headphones to replace a 20 year old pair of Sony MDR-7506's that were getting rather frayed around the edges. I have no real complaint about the sound, although with some recordings the bass sounds somewhat flat.
The least impressive Sennheisers headphones I've heard

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.
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.
