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

  • 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.

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.
