Sadly this greatly increased low end really ruins what would otherwise be an excellent pair of headphones

Summary: Whilst initially I found these headphones to be quite impressive, after some prolonged listening they proved themselves not to be so. The main issue is that the low end frequencies are massively over pronounced, and whilst this sounded okay for some recordings from the 70s which I checked them on...
Summary: I'm not an audiophile, but having purchased a pair of Sennheiser MM50i in-ear headphones last year I was astounded by the difference from my old Sony in-ear plugs. As a result, I was looking for a decent pair of headphones for home / travel use.
Summary: These Sennheiser's where my first pair of cans, and they didn't dissapoint at all: SOUND: I always find that over ear headphone review concentrate and the build quality and style, rather than the sound.
Summary: Very pleased with the sound quality and bass clarity offered by the HD 380's, having upgraded from a 2-year old pair of HD 205's. As a closed back design they really allow you to get absorbed into the tunes you're playing and allow you to float along on the music.
Summary: Great thing about theses is they fit OVER your ears, so you can wear them for a while without an pressure or pain on your ears. I bought these as replacement for the solo HD monster beats which I though sounded too bassy and not clear with higher sounds.
Summary: Excellent, excellent sound. Great bargain with the 41% discount from amazon at the moment, but after hearing them, I would have paid full price or more. I'm still burning them in, but so far I have been blown away with the sound stage quality, the comfort, and the external noise cancelling ability.
Summary: Simply said, these headphones are absolutely awesome! For its very reasonable price and excellent sound quality, these headphones have got to be the best out in its price range. The only reservation I have is that the cord (telephone-like) is too long, but that's just me being picky.
