Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 PRO Closed-Back Headphones:

I like these headphones to listen to music while on my computer and also for practicing on my bass guitar without waking everyone. The headphone are clear enough to hear individuals clapping during live recordings as if you are sitting there in a seat beside them.

    Sennheisers have been my choice since I was 14 (I'm 49 now). These headphones are fastastic for recording: balanced sound with the best mids I've ever come across. You couldn't pay me to try something else for recording. End of story (and review).

      Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 PRO Closed-Back Headphones:

      I have had these headphones for over 10 years now and i started to use them in the summer on my riding mower. They sound just as good as when i bought them 12 years ago. I still use them for rough mixes and have made master sounding mixes on them with out trying. Ive dropped them, flown internationaly with them, even covered them in sweat and ive only damaged the outer layer. If you want a pair of headphones that sound better than theyre price buy these, you wont be disappointed! :)

            These headphones are so good they made me want to write a review on them. Bass is a teeny bit lacking but mids are very level with highs just right. EQ curve would be flat with a little bass roll off. Still amazing and with speakers being the weakest link in the sound chain and at this price Musicians Friend is giving them away.

                I a-b these against my cad 510's and the cads blow them away as far as i'm concerned. i let my wife listen to both without asking her to judge and she picked the cads for best sound also.

                  I read all of the positive reviews but you normally have to take those with a grade of slaw. Wow, was I wrong. These headphones rock. I had a pair of beats prior and it really rustles my jimmies knowing how much I payed for a lesser sound quality. I wood recommend these to all my friends.
