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.

    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! :)

      I bought these to protect my hearing while playing my drums to music and it has done just that. Very rarely do my ears ring after playing anymore and the sound is really great. They fit perfectly in my backpack whenever I have to take them places with me and they always get the job done when I need them. I use them mostly for practicing drums to music and at times I've used them in a live performance setting. They are by far the best headphones I've used.

        Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 PRO Closed-Back Headphones:

        I became very frustrated shopping the internet for headphones. All I wanted was a decent pair of good-sounding headphones to listen to my music off the home stereo unit. Plain and simple. But nowadays there are so many versions of so many products it's very easy to become overwhelmed! When I bought these headphones I was at my wit's end and just took a chance. Turns out, I ended up with stereo headphones that are exactly what I wanted: excellent clear sound, bass and treble, lightweight and comfortable, good-looking. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD STEREO HEADPHONES TO LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC FROM YOUR HOME STEREO, THESE FIT THE BILL NICELY!

            I had originally bought some Tascams, but I really couldn't hear the mix properly. I kept asking the engineer to turn up the vocal in my mix. He didn't understand because he was wearing Senheisers and he could hear everything (and we didn't have separate headphone mixes). These are much better; I'm getting a nice balance, along with clarity. With headphones, you really do get what you pay for.

              This provides a great sound isolation and sound quality for recording/tracking. Very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The only reason I took away a star is for the coiled cable. I really hate those. I don't like my phones cable hanging in the air extended pulling on the headphones. But nothing a cable extension can't solve. The bass is accurate unlike the ones from the Dr which over emphasize the bass.

                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).

                      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 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.

                                This was a gift for my husband who does at home production. He hasn't stopped using them and loves them so far.
