Excerpt: I lost my HD280 so bought these. Much better sound, A LOT more comfortable. They disappear when you wear them they are that comfortable. The 380's also sound better. I would call it a richer sound than the 280's. While not noise canceling they do a very good job of blocking out outside noise. Buy them you won't be sorry.
Excerpt: I am a long term user of the sennheiser HD280 pro I made my upgrade to the HD 380 and i love them. They are well bouilt, incredible sound. the bass is REALLY DEEP. 32db of ambient noise canceling. replacesable cord. just very professional.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: I have owned a pair of these headphones for six weeks now. Initially I bought them to cope with office noise. I work in a large, open cube farm with a great deal of white noise and a constant cacophony of conversation.
These 'phones have surpassed my expectations since day one. Given my office environment and the fact that my music collection is 100% compressed, lossy audio (MP3 & AAC), I didn't think an expensive pair of open-backed headphones was appropriate.
Pros: Inexpensive, no obvious flaws in the sound reproduction, very good noise isolation, foldable
Cons: Very tight fit initially, the stock cable is heavy and bulky
Summary: These are some of the best sounding closed cans I've ever heard. The sound quality and clarity and bass which is important to me is awesome. I need closed cans because of my work environment and these sound better than the lower end "Audiophile" quality "open" cans. These are highly recommended!
Summary: I bought the HD380 Pro to replace my aging Sennheiser HD250 Linear II headphones. These were over 20 years old and had been refurbished by Sennheiser a few years back. I had always rated the 250s as decent quality (they cost £175 in 1994), but I hadn't appreciated how the sound quality had deteriorated. When compared with the 380s the sound was slightly muffled and bass was much less prevalent.
Great for blues, some rock etc but be aware of their limitations.

Summary: Test tracks: Dub 'n Run - High Elephant Panic Girl - Hide & Seek (Duo Infernale remix) The Struts - Hold On Metallica - Orion & For Whom The Bell Tolls Sound leakage; yep, unfortunately quite a lot. Comfort: Top class, over ears are always going to get warm after a period of use and it's no different with these. comfortable padding on both the cups and the headband. Sound: Mids and highs are perfect, rolling bass notes are there...somewhat.
Summary: I had decided I wanted to splash out and get a decent set of headphones as
I got tired of spending $30-$60 on supposedly good ear-buds. After researching,
testing and harassing sound engineers, these were the ones I picked up and
I couldn't be happier. The sound is crisp, the range is amazing and you can
hear so much more in songs that you probably never knew were there.
Summary: These are a superb set of headphones. Great detailed, well balanced sound quality with amazing bass extension (they go very low indeed) without getting overblown or muddy. clean midrange and clear trebles without getting sizzly or tinny. Very comfortable, for me anyway. These 'phones fold up for storage and transportation in a very handy zip-up carry case.
Summary: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Where everything else fails, this come to save the day. Clear pure sound no matter how you play your kit. Excellent Noise Cancellation for your VDrum needs. Comfortable for prolonged use, after few minutes you forget you have them on. Quality build to last. Pouch is most welcome. Cable is de-touchable and replacement widely available.
