Just got my third pair of HD 280 PRO ! Sound quality and response is excellent across the range. The around-ear design provides for comfort even when using for long duration, while there is just enough tension in the headband to provide noise isolation without feeling pressure around the ears.
The headphone sound quality for me is impressive. Certainly well built although look plastic. Can be folded compactly. Really good for blocking ambient noise. Earpad are soft and comfortable. A bit bulky.
These headphones are my first from sennheiser.. and I love them! I had skullcandy beats and some other kind before and there are the best I ever had! Great sound and you can have these full blast and no one will had it also you can't hear anyone while listening to them. PRO: Good Bass, Lightweight, Great Sound, Comfortable CON: Unattractive Design BEST USES: Portable Devices, Music BOTTOM LINE: I would recommend this to a friend.
