Decent sound without breaking the bank

  • Excerpt: Really a rating of 3.5 stars. Sound is crisp enough for professional work. They are a bit heavier than the Sennheiser 202 that they replaced. Hopefully they will last longer, since the S202's break easily.
  • Pros: Clear Sound

Disappointed

  • Summary: I don't record music and I'm not a professional artist. I bought these for using at home and in the office while I work; on occasion for the library or coffeeshop. I've had a nice set of sennheiser earbuds for a few years now and I love the sound they create -- I wanted a set of over ear headphones...
  • Pros: -These seal very well around my ears and their noise reduction is notable. -Sound is full; not warm but not harsh; Flat as many have described but I find them quite capable of low end if I adjust the EQ. I wouldn't say they're pleasurable to listen to however -- especially not compared with (for ...
  • Cons: -All plastic design; just feels and looks cheap. I can see why people have had issues with breakage over time. The material on the ear cups looks and feels cheap -- not pleasant against the skin. They squeak loudly against my glasses every time i twitch a muscle. -In the first hour I wore them, t...

  • Summary: Extreme clamping force, very poor quality earpads, suckout in upper bass and lower mids (requires several minutes to seal to get better bass and mids and reduce hollow sound), and a bit too much highs around 7 and 9 khz making a slight zingy sound.

  • Summary: They can become uncomfortable. You can't wear them for too long as they start to hurt from squeezing your head (on any setting). They have good bass reference, mids are ok, and highs are not too bright or harsh.

Sturdy, Good Mid Range, Good Isolation

  • Excerpt: I used these headphones for 3 years for production sound mixing and some studio recording. The construction is great, the ear pads are replaceable, decent mid-range which is good for capturing dialogue when mixing on location, great noise isolation as well, they are also somewhat comfortable.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Versatile
  • Cons: Limited Audio Range, Non-Replaceable Cable

They are good but..

  • Summary: These headphones are much better & cheaper than the Bose AE2 model. But when it comes to listening to good music comfort is also very important. I have had these 280's for about 2 weeks now & the sound lives up to my expectation as a audiophile teamed up with a headphone amp, but its just not...

  • Summary: I have a hearing loss; therefore, I depend on phones when watching tv. the phones met my expectations for the price, but they lack the comfort and the noise reduction of the Bose phones that I also use for tv viewing.

Great Sound, Questionable Padding Build

  • Excerpt: I purchased these phones a couple years ago because of the brand reputation and thinking that they would last me a *long* time. The good news: the sound quality is fantastic. I hear details and definition I've never hear before in some of my music.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

  • Summary: I am basing my review with the Tack Mod. The Tack Mod helped increase the bass impact and extension. These headphones have slight echo. Very analytical and not so warm. These also have the highest isolation i know of for full size headphones because it has the highest clamping force.
