These are not designed for listening on the go. In the comfort of your home , they're great .
I own expensive and cheap pairs. I'm a classical musician that listens to everything.
These are good for home passive isolation. You don't need much volume to get lost in your world .
Cons: The bass is hard to hear unless you EQ it, and volume is not very high.
Also, very bulky and a long heavy coiled chord.
I'll keep them for home use with a movie or the stereo when there is noise around. At least until I decide to spend $300 in the Bose Quiet Comfort 20. ( great isolation , but very poor sound and bass response from a $300 headset !)
Pros: I record music at home, so a flat signal helps ( hence the Pro name).
The sound improved after 3 days of leaving them on the stereo burning them in 24/7.
They are great for classical music. Trebles are not harsh, so there is less fatigue after a couple of hours.
The even signal is very enjoyable , and the isolation works great . I would enjoy a tiny more bass, but it is there, and the quality makes up for it.
Coiled cable works great to move around your work space, you can tell it's what they were designed for.
I love how these sound ! Not muddy at all.
These Senheisser HD Pro 280 are great for the price,and probably a neutral signal that works for recording, but you can explore other options, specially for portable listening , both in regards to comfort and getting a lively sound.
I hope it helps.
***Update: in a week, these are giving me more bass and are comfortable for hours. I tuck the coiled cable on my side, using my belt, and walk around with them all day.
Even on the bus I can hear details without playing music too loud.
I don't hear ppl talking to me.
Popular music like John Meyer or Dave Mathews Band, Cake, Pantera, pop, Jazz, sounds as good as piano music now. Orchestra and acoustic sound great also. I'm not using the other headphones anymore.
Try them and burn them in for a week.
Great value: sturdy , and great sound !
The downsides are that the foam around the cups tends to come off after a while. Also, the plug and cable are very heavy and stiff (as far as plugs and cables go) and as a result this puts extra strain on whatever device they are plugged into.
What I mean is the stiff cable frequently pulls the jack to the side when it's plugged in. You won't notice anything after a few uses. But if you use these in the same device for months you're likely to notice your headphone jack is wearing out where the internal pins get bent. You'll get sound from only one ear unless you rotate your plug and maybe press it in a certain direction, which just wears out the headphone jack even faster.
Anyways, A simple solution I have for this is to use a cheap and short 3.5mm extension cable. Then the heavy headphone cables dangle farther away from the actual jack, and the extension cable can be selected to be light and not put strain on the jack. Also, On stationary computer speakers I find it's helpful to tape the extension cable to the desk, so that movements in the cable don't translate into movements in the jack.

As a sound blocker, they sort of work; if the radio is set to a low volume, then I can mostly tune out the CBC blather. If I have my own audio playing through this headset, then it effectively blocks out everything, placing me in my own audio sound scape.
Thing is.., I don't always want to be listening to something. I like it just to be quiet sometimes. So I might just have to get some proper hearing protection ear muffs. -It's too bad that they don't make a set of hearing protection muffs with a wired audio connection! (All you can get are ones with radios in them. Not useful.)
On the plus side...
These headphones have excellent sound, they are snug and comfortable and they do block out noise enough to take the edge off an annoying environment.
On the con side...
The input cable is attached to the base of one ear cup, and like a stethoscope, every bump the wire makes against a desk, and every brush against your pants leg, is transmitted to your ear. So even without an electronic audio signal, it's constantly making noise. It's annoying and there's not much you can do about it other than try to ignore it, -or play something over it, in which case, this issue vanishes.
Bottom Line: Poor quality, audio loss within the first year of purchase. Do not buy.
Aside from that, outstanding quality! I mix in protools and ableton and i haven't found a pair yet that defines bass below 100hz that too well! These do the trick!
To my ageing lug-holes, the sound quality is very good, but as I can't hear anything above about 11kHz, don't take my word for it. ;o)
Most of the bass region is surprisingly restrained (although they do have a noticeable sub-bass hump around 50-100 Hz), the mid-range is clear, and, although a bit rolled-off compared to the open-backed models, the treble is enough to give a well-rounded overall sound that won't fatigue your ears. I don't personally plan to mix on them, but some do, and for tracking it sure beats listening through a bass resonator like the HD201s.
Apart from the slight sub-bass hump, the only other drawback of these cans is the leatherette finish on the inside of the headband and ear pads, which I know, from my experience with the EH150s, will likely not age well.
The final positive to mention is that these are truly around-the-ear cans, with even more ear clearance than the HD650/HD600 models, and I can't imagine anyone having ears large enough to be cramped by them.
I have these on for hours most days and they remain very comfortable indeed - the soft cups really are almost unnoticeable after a while. I have had my pair for 6 years now and after heavy use they have aged very well (other than wearing of the headband and the cup covers - as to be expected) and they are very durable. Then again I take extra care of my stuff..
Anyhow, these headphones are fantastic value and I would highly recommend them. Just remember they are monitoring phones so if youplan to use them for music or other they might sound to neutral for some..
Very even responce .....strong bass clean middle clear top.
I am highly impressed with this brand as my old sennheiser headphones lasted eight years until some little s**t stole them last week.
The cable being coiled unfortunately wears down the wires, and makes it extremely heavy. It "Forms" into a bent curve because of it which eventually breaks the cable.
It wouldn't be too bad if the cable was replaceable or a spare cable came with the headset for another £5.
Decent headphones for mixing your music, however they lack enough bass to properly represent what most people hear and I find myself having to compensate regularly when I switch to speakers. If they had a little more bass they would be perfect.
These headphones are super super clear, however, and a joy to use for mixing.
