Summary: I bought these headphone for the purpose of listening to music and audiobooks while on plane. They work very well and while they don't offer any advanced noise isolation, they work very well at not leaving all the aircraft sounds come into your ear. Don't expect a 100% isolation but for their price they work like charm and the sound quality is very good.
Built for the road. Great for accurate audio with little coloration.

Summary: When I first picked up these cans, the first thing I noticed were the upfront and sometimes harsh vocals/mids. I was a little surprised because the reviews say otherwise. I tried different sources to no avail. I have a smaller size noggin as a general comparison. I wore the cans with the headband completely retracted as i though extending it was pointless given the good tight but not uncomfortable fit.
Excerpt: * How long you use it? 3 weeks * Did you tried many other models before buying it? Not in this product line. Being unable to test it before purchasing (sacrilege I know for certain ^ ^), I relied on many critics (including here) and items of specialized sites.
Summary: I am no audiophile but I have been through many pairs of in ear headphones from apple to sony. I previously owned a pair of Sennhieser 205HD. But let me just say the 380 HD Pro Headphones are the BEST Pair I have bought Wow!!! The sound is absolutely crystal clear completely different anything i've ever heard before and i'm an amateur music producer. If you are reluctant on what pair to buy I would certainly suggest these as they are really priceless.
Summary: I'm an amateur composer, music producer and sound engineer. So I demand the highest sound quality out of my monitoring headphones. On the other hand, I also appreciate some of the cheap offerings out there, especially Apple's second generation iPod earphones, as I understand what they're supposed to be. I use my Apple earphones with my iPod while I'm out and about, because there's really no need for good-sounding ear/headphones when I'm out NOT doing critical listening.
Highly recommend Sennheiser HD380 Pro - for ANY device

Summary: This is my first ever review of a product but felt the need to help anyone needing a similar recommendation such as myself when looking to pay reasonable money for a good pair headphones to last. Purchased these after a lengthy look at others' reviews on Amazon, t'internet and also the YouTube videos. After the time I spent looking, I hope you won't need to much longer, save your time and just buy a pair.
Summary: After considerable research into the headphones market I decided these were the best buy for the price - £101.98 with free delivery. The key specification to look for is the frequency response. This is the range of sound frequency the headphones are capable of reproducing - in the case of the HD 380 pros this is a rather incredible 8Hz - 27Khz.
