Summary: I DJ and produce music. These headphones are perfect for both of those. They are built very well and will not break. They are also perfect for production because the Highs, Mids, and Lows can be heard as they should. The headphones also come with a really cool case that is pretty sturdy itself. I love this product and Sennheiser has me sold as far as headphones go. Great product!
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: For their size, these headphones are real comfortable. They fold into a small pouch. They sound real crisp. I picked these up for home studio application. The only problem is: they sound way too heavy on the bass. And that can be very misleading for the mixdowns.
Pros: I got these to use mixing music on my Yamaha Motif. All I can tell you is I'm not disappointed. They are worth the money. Very comfortable over long periods of time. And the sound representation is awesome. You can listen to these for hours and you forget you're even wearing them. Quality construction. These are built to last.
Balanced Sound is the best way to Experience Music.

Pros: Like the title, these headphones are for balanced sound, which means you don't get overpowering bass or extremely torrid highs or mids. The sound is MESMERIZING. I've recently been on a search for the best over the ear headphones for a reasonable price. I've been through the following headphones: Bose Quietcomfort 15, Dr. Dre Beats Studio, V-Moda Crossfire and the Bower & Wilkin P5's. The bass on these Sennheiser's is tight and deep, not the overpowering bass that the...
Cons: In my initial experience, there are no cons.
Summary: These also aren't the LOUDEST headphones in the world. Not really a con, just sometimes you really wanna crank it up, but these headphones won't really go up to "11" if you catch my drift.
Pros: The clarity from the top to the bottom of the spectrum is mesmerizing. Of course it isn't 'perfectly flat' but at $200 can you beat this?
Cons: Because they are closed headphones, they don't have the same fidelity and clarity of open headphones of this grade. Therefore, there is a distinct coloring in the high-mid range. But this doesn't distort the sound at all. Still extremely clear through and through.
Summary: I upgraded from the HD 280 to the HD HD 380 and I'm very pleased. I compared these to Dre/Monster and Bose and believe the Sennheisers provide a better overall value relative to sound quality, style and price. I would not hesitate to pull the trigger on these.
Pros: Awesome sound. The clearity of the all of the tones is exceptional. The bass is great also, it doesnt muffle or sound like garbage even when u turn it up all the way. Even at full volume the sound is still great unlike most headphones. Very comfertable. Covers your ears fully, and makes it so any outside noise is unoticable so you can conentrate on your audio. Nice case, and it folds up smoothly - very good design. Durability looks great. I also use these for games an...
Cons: Although the sound is superb, it is still kind of expensive. The comfort and portability is what seals the deal for me though.
Summary: Really though, I'll edit if something comes up, haven't held them long enough.
Pros: I am an audiophile... well, a real audiophile would consider me a poser, but within my budget, musical equipment and electronics come secondly only to food/rent/bills. I did a lot of research into what would be my first set of high fidelity cans and it came down to these and some model of Shures. NewEgg had a sale for Thanksgiving and I took the bait.
Summary: The Jack started to become defective and within a month, no more sound. Luckily, Amazon allowed me to return them. I had them 32 days, and the cutoff was 30 days.
I am torn with purchasing another one or searching for something else.
The sound quality was amazing. I only needed them for home so they were not intended to be used at the gym or during commuting.
I did routinely connect it to my tablet for phone.
Pros: I agree with most of the Pro's with other reviewers. These headphones sound awesome.
Cons: The Jack started to become defective and within a month, no more sound. Luckily, Amazon allowed me to return them. I had them 32 days.
Summary: I was originally looking at the HD 515's but then after much deliberation and review study I settled for the HD 380's. When I first got the phones I was not too thrilled as they sounded very brash specially in the mid rage with over emphasised vocals. Over the next few weeks of use the brash sound slowly faded away as the cans started to break in. Now the sound is much warmer and the mids have evened out so they are no longer accentuated.
Pros: Decent sound isolation, sounds is detailed, neutral enough for the price
