Summary: Due to my poor skills in writing in English this review of Sennheiser hd380 will be pretty short.
Build quality and package:
Nice, good quality but only plastic build without any fancy design accents. Seems to be quite solid. Coiled cable is not perfet solution in day to day usage but is ok.
Pros: Almost linear reproduction ,very good controlled bass, clear mids, decent highs. Much better highs and perfect clear linear sound with decent Dac/amp
Cons: Only good dac/amp(at least fiioE7) can drive it to make good highs and overall very good sound (theyre little muddy with poor sources),no leather pads
Summary: I realize it is a bit of apples vs oranges, but I will compare these to the Sennheiser HD 600 sound, since I sometimes use those to mix recordings with, and many know their sound. Assuming good sources and amplification, the HD 380 pro sounds as balanced through the mids and highs as the HD 600.
Pros: Sound quality, Isolation, Comfort and fit, Durability, Hard shell case, Price
Cons: If used with portable or casual home use, needs replacement cable
Summary: I chose the HD380 Pros to replace my Audio-Technica M50s, and have not looked back ever since (except to compare the M50s to the HD380s with songs). Sound-wise the Senns are superior to the M50s in every way.
Pros: Balanced sound, treble sparkle, silky smooth female voices, very detailed, tight mid and sub bass, very comfortable ear cups
Cons: Not very adjustable, clamping force, slight echo to the vocals (Senn trait), not the best noise isolation, ear cups get a little hot
Summary: I bought these to replace my ATH-M50s and HD280 Pro.
I am very happy with them, They have a relatively balanced sound with a slight emphasis on bass which is tight and punchy.
Bass - The bass on these headphones is tight and punchy (not loose and flabby like the ATH-M50 which was always a bother...
Summary: I will keep this review short, as I can pretty much confirm what other reviewers have said.
They are highly recommended for those seeking a sub 200 $ closed headphone with good isolation (very very little sound leak, and blocks off a lot of ambient noise), good build quality and nice carrying...
Pros: Build quality, good sound - even unamped, moderate portability, isolation
Cons: Coiled cable, not the premier choice for a portable walk on the street headphone
Summary: I have to start once again with saying that I love the sound signature of Sennheiser so I might have a biased opinion with these headphones. I think these are a definite step up from the 280’s. The sound from both sides of the spectrum and everything in between is just smooth and sounds great.
Pros: Sound, fit, comfort, build quality, design with carrying case.
