Summary: -In order to properly enjoy these headphones, a burn in is required. Don't get me wrong, your initial listen to these headphones will be great but after hours of listening, you'll notice the headphone's clarity improve immensely.
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:...
Cons: In my initial experience, there are no cons.
Summary: All in all, an amazing product by an amazing company. I always swear by Sennheisers and continue to tell my friends and fellow audio-crazies about them.
Pros: The clarity from the top to the bottom of the spectrum is mesmerizing. Of course it isn't 'perfectly flat' but at $200 can you beat this? Closed, which gives you less leakage from the cup to the outside, plus it is over the ear and gives you no 'ear pain' problems that smaller headphones that res...
Cons: Because they are closed headphones, they don't have the same fidelity and clarity of open headphones of this grade. Therefore, there is a distinct coloring in the high-mid range. But this doesn't distort the sound at all. Still extremely clear through and through. These also aren't the LOUDEST he...
Summary: I bought these for 129.99 during the xgiving sale so this was a no brainer. Worth the 200$ in my opinion though. These will last you for years and years, very comfertable, great quaility as you would expect from the price and well respected company.
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...
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: I never write reviews for stuff I buy. As I sat here listening to Comfortably Numb from the Pink Floyd P.U.L.S.E. recording through these for the first time, I cried. The full terribly beauty of the solos hit me like it has never hit me before.
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....
Cons: None yet. Buy them already! Really though, I'll edit if something comes up, haven't held them long enough.
Excerpt: I gave 3 stars because of the color, sound, and the case. -2 stars: the design, as a boom op or especially a one man sound, I like to put my headphone around my neck. Comparing to HD 280 Pro, this headphone reverse swivel and bigger ear cups makes it impossible to achieve that.
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.
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
