Excerpt: I purchased these as a gift for my spouse and he has been very satisfied with them. He says they are very comfortable on his ears even after editing for 8-10 straight and the noise cancellation is excellent.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I love these headphones for monitoring and mixing when doing video editing. I love listening to music on these even more. I work in a somewhat noisy office environment, and these phones are VERY quiet. I sometimes can't hear when people are trying to talk to me. The frequency response is also incredible. You can hear deep bass as well as crisp details in the high end. I have had these for over 5 years and have yet to find other headphones I prefer.
Excerpt: Overall, we are pleased with these headphones. They are well made, and have a very clear and uncolored sound, which is want you need for studio headphones. The noise cancelling is very good also. They only drawback is the coiled cord that gets tangled up easily A straight cord (even if it was shorter) would be preferable. Also, they are a little bit heavier than we thought they would be and get somewhat uncomfortable after a long period of use.
Excerpt: I use it for school, and at home for when I am using programs such as Pro Tools, Logic Audio, FL Studio. The Sennheiser HD 280's are comfortable, not heavy, great for mixing, and highly recommended for musical work.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Amazing quality sound and construction at a fraction of the cost of the nearest competing product. The design is so perfect, it has remained unchanged for nearly 20 years. My first pair finally broke out after about 11 years and a lot of very hard use. The old speakers still worked, but they had been dropped so many times, it was too much for the housing. Not even tape could hold them together.
Pros: Affordable, Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Excerpt: Let's start by saying these headphones are amazingly comfortable. As soon as you put them on, you feel the foam adjust to your head and it sounds like your in a studio. The audio quality...Just wow. I can't get the speakers to clip or even distort. Music and sounds that used to make audio fuzzy and distorted now come in crystal clear. These headphones make even 44.1k audio sound like a beast. Construction...no complaints.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I bought these for monitoring/mixing in my home studio. The sound is clean, the balance is excellent; it is easy to distinguish each track and hear all the detail I need to add/adjust effects and mix down. In short, I find these excellent for the purpose and don't feel the need to spend significantly more (and you'd have to to get a meaningfully better sound). There's a reason these are an industry standard.
