    I purchased these phones a couple years ago because of the brand reputation and thinking that they would last me a *long* time. The good news: the sound quality is fantastic. I hear details and definition I've never hear before in some of my music.

    The bad news: after a year+ of heavy use while recording voiceovers, the foam padding on one of the headphones has already detached and now is about half way unglued. I expected something a lot more durable than this. I use them at my office desk only and do not take them outside or in high heat or any other circumstance that would cause them to deteriorate like this.

    Will probably buy a higher end Sennheiser model with more robust build quality, but still, there's no excuse for this.

      Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Circumaural Closed-Back Monitor Headphones:

      Can't go wrong with this set of cans. I personally prefer these to the Sony MDR-7506 studio headphones. The Sennheisers are much more sturdy and cancel out the sound very well. I would say these are heavy on the midtones but hold a decent bass. Not nearly as good of a soundstage as the Sennheiser HD598's which are dropping in price ($) but those are more for private music sessions as the HD280's I would recommend for video editing.

        The sound reproduction is amazing and they block out so much of the noise from the surroundings that I have to be tapped on the shoulder to gain my attention. Using them for my edit station at my office which is a noisy cubicle farm, these are the best set of cans I've ever used.

          Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Circumaural Closed-Back Monitor Headphones:

          Their greatest feature is that they seal well, so they're good for keeping the playback track from bleeding into the mic when tracking in the studio, or for sealing off the house sound when soloing channels while mixing live sound. The fact that they fold up compactly and are pretty durable are also pluses...oh...and they're at a GREAT price point.
          One possible con is that they fit so tight that they're a bit uncomfortable to wear for long periods...but I have open back cans for that...so I don't really care.

            This headphone feels and sounds like professional grade headphones and this feel great when I wear them. I use this headphones to monitor the FOH audio in my local church and this works great recommend this headphone to anyone with a $ or under budget. The box includes a 1/4" adapter so that was a plus.

            Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Circumaural Closed-Back Monitor Headphones:

            Bought the first set (8/2014)for use on a cross country flight based on claims and reviews stating the amount of outside noise rejection, since jet engines really bother my ears. The price was very appealing. Based on their physical size I also bought an external power source for my tiny cheap MP3 player, thinking that the internal battery would not last long while driving these headphones. The noise rejection was great, and at the volume level I was using, the MP3 player battery never needed recharging. March 2015-- away from home (no MP3 or headphones) and had to make an unexpected trip. Bought a 2nd set, the originals can be my wife's since she likes them too. On my return flights there were no entertainment services at all, and I used the headphones for their noise reduction alone. They are large over the ear types, but very soft padded and comfortable for me over long periods of time. Very satisfied. For the money, an excellent product.

              Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Circumaural Closed-Back Monitor Headphones:

              I use the headphones primarily for tracking in my recording studio. Because the cover the ear and have a closed back, they block out the music in the room, and allow the player to hear the headphone mix clearly. They do not distort and have a fairly even frequency response. The only downside is the cost, usually $ a pair, B&H did $ with free shipping, so I bought 3 pair.

              These do a great job of eliminating outside noise. Great sound, including low frequencies. Very comfortable to wear, although they're slightly heavy. The cord and jack are heavy-duty and seem they'll stand up to the rigors of regular pro use. I do wish they would fold up smaller for easy transport, but that's not really a huge issue.

                  Comments about Sennheiser HD 280 Pro Circumaural Closed-Back Monitor Headphones:

                  First, the pros: These are quality headphones. They are made well, fit tight to prevent sound leaking, but not too tight. Are relatively lightweight and reproduce sound well. However, the cons: when I compare them to my Shure SRH-440's they seem bright and lacking a tad bit of detail. For my purposes, despite my reasons for wanting to change, I will continue using the Shures.

                  Apparently, just like a good microphone every set of headphones have their own character and may not be suited to what you need or to your ears. For reference, the majority of what I use studio headphones for is editing and mastering audiobooks.

                  Generally, I use AKG 240DF in the studio, and they're fantastic. But, I needed a closed back set of phones to track drums. The Sennheisers really mute a lot of the outside sound (as much as 32 db). I can hear the track and bash away without worrying that I won't hear the music well enough. These are perfect for what I need them for. They are also really nice for just listening to music while relaxing on the couch. Love 'em!!

                    I have used these for studio time over the last week and I think these are amazing headphones for the money. They do clip a little when I really crank them up but it does not seem to affect sound quality to a huge extent. Great wide range of decibel levels with these... perfect for anyone who wants some budget studio headphones

                    only thing I wish is that it had a detachable cord so when the headphones fold up it was more compact.

                      Did a lot of spec comparing, big mistake. You must hear phones to compare. Specs don't help with real world music production that you want to hear. The folks at B+H were very helpful.
                      I have to say shipping was not on time(not there falt) I ordered two day shipping, it took five days. I guess I shouldn't have ordered during one of the biggest snow storms in January.

                        Excellent value for money. The sound is superb, and passive noise cancellation is great.

                          These headphones are comfortable and very good at noise-cancelling. When I have them on without audio and people are talking to me - I can barely hear them, which is perfect. They're a bit larger than I expected but this is my first pair of over ear headphones since high school. I just began as a substitute radio host and am really loving them. I wore them while planning my show and they did not become a bother until after about 5 hours of usage. At that point, my ears were a little sore.

                            Monitoring soundtrack while editing video or pre-flying the next track at a party, this is a very good piece of ear gear.
