Summary: So let me start by saying that there are better, and more expensive headphones on the market. I'm sure you already know this, and you probably also know that "expensive" and "better" don't always go hand-in-hand. So here we have the proof of that statement. These phones deliver top-notch sound quality in a comfortable form, with the lightweight over-ear design meaning you can keep them on for as long as you like and also delivering a decent degree of noise-blocking.
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. Having read the many reviews on various headphones between £25 & £100 (and been thoroughly confused), I kept comping back to these, at the top end of my budget.
Summary: Arrived promptly and I immediately gave them a test run, electronica sounds vast and spacious, lots of room and "headroom" in the audio field. Using these headphones with Jazz and Classical reveals intricate layers and highlights every note. Simpler music such as folk or pop still sounds amazing and crystal clear. Also great for use with DAW such as logic the spectrum is very neutral/flat and they do not cover up flaws in the mixing.
Summary: Once in a while you discover something which pleases beyond expectations. Up until now I have never been able to find a pair of headphones that were comfortable and sounded good. Now I have. I cant find a thing about these headphone I dont like.
Summary: Hate the curly cord , sennheiser dont do a straight cable . Brilliant phones , even better with 1M Metre 2.5mm to 3.5mm Jack Audio AUX MP3 Cable Lead bought from amazon for £1.75. Sand off the concentric rings of material on the 2.5mm end and you have a replacement straight cord allowing you to put your player in a trouser pocket and no slack .
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.
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.
