Summary: After 3 previous pairs of(high quality) Sennheiser headphones, I can safely say these are my favorite pair. The product is entirely durable, the snapping method feels very strong after 3 months of nearly constant wear.
Summary: Received the headphones today. Good build quality, sound great. Fairly comfortable, perhaps will soften up in time. Far less comfortable than the Bose headphones I tried, but do not carry the insane Bose price tag. Impressed with the jack and lead, seem high quality and a good length.
Excerpt: I went to the music store to check out some headphones, (before I decided to purchase the Sennheiser HD 380’s) I brought an mp3 player with different types of music all sampled at 320kbs - high quality stuff - and spent 90 minutes listening to the following headphones.
Summary: Short and simple...amazing..nothing more to be said. The sound is so good I feel I have become a bit of a sound geek because of them. All people to try them on are ecstatic about what they hear, even people who have more expensive headphones. A friend recently ordered a pair after having tried them.
Summary: I've had my pair of 380s for just under two years now and i still love them to this day. Pros: - Brilliant sound reproduction suitable for all types of music. - Lovely frequency response all across the range; detailed (but not harsh) high end, lovely warm mid and very good bass on the low end.
Summary: Everyone else will correctly tell you that these will blow you away. Outstanding sound and build quality. It is non obvious how the lead unplugs from the Headphones. Don't pull the cable. Slide it sideways and it comes out without trouble. Unusual right angle 2.5mm gold plated jack.
Summary: WOW i upgraded to these from my old phillip headphones and the quality difference is insane. they cover my ears and keep the sound in I really like these and for late night recording they are just awesome
Summary: This is one of the best headphones I've ever tried. Some people say it's a cross between the HD 555 and HD 280 Pro but for me it's far better than both. Audio quality is extremely detailed and goes very close to that of the HD 595, only with a closed design.
Summary: I'm a music technologist. and superior sound quality from the headphones is crucial to produce master class products. I've used different headphones throughout the years and I've stuck with Sennheiser for it's superb monitoring capabilities. This has a flat response.
