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 !
One of the best things about this set is the noise isolation. I work in an office area and the lady next to me has no sense of self awareness, but she's super nice so I just bite my tongue. I needed some headphones to drown out her singing along with her music when she has her headphones on, and to drown out her music when she decides to take them off and crank them up to try and use them as loudspeakers. These do the job. I also want to keep the music in so others don't have to listen to my music with me. These do the job. I originally got a pair of V-MODA LP2's, and they sounded great, but leaked sound like a sieve. I returned them and went with these and there is a world of difference in that regard. I expect they will be fantastic on an airplane as well.
One thing I have noticed is that in order to get the best bass response you need to keep them sealed against your head. When I wear my glasses with them it breaks that seal slightly and the there is a noticeable difference in the bass response. I am planning on building a headphone amplifier with a variable bass boost to try to remedy that (yes, I know they are commercially available but I am cheap and an electrical engineer). I also am not a huge fan of the hard mounted coiled cord, but I am also going to chop that off and install an inline 3.5mm jack, which should also allow me to buy a cable with iPhone controls on it. Anyways, so far I am very happy with these headphones.
UPDATE: I was able to chop off the bulky coiled cord and install a 3.5mm jack to allow me to plug in a smaller audio cord, making it a little more comfortable to listen to. I purchased the following cable and now I have iPhone controls with these headphones:
If you decide to try this, just be aware that the conductors inside the insulation are magnet wire, meaning they have a thin coating on them so they are difficult to solder to. You can get rid of it by tinning the wire, but it does make it a little difficult to work with.
Next: did this product work satisfy the purpose for which I bought it? Yes, and then some.
One of the reviews marked "Most Helpful" indicates that these wouldn't fit someone with a large head. Let me tell you something. My wife tells me my head looks like the mother alien from that movie, "Alien." I have a huuuuuge head. And these fit great. In addition to a huge head, I have huge ears. And the cups fit over them fine too. In terms of fit, they're perfectly comfortable for the 5+ hours I have them on my head each day.
Next up, noise reduction. While these are not active noise-cancelling cans, they form a great seal and I can't even hear my keyboard clacking from 2 feet away when I've got tunes on. I love them. They drown out all my coworkers and let me concentrate on work.
Lastly, build quality. These have a nice, thick, coated cord, which I'm told is replaceable as well. The headband is pliant but not brittle, and while the padding material seems dubious, I haven't noticed any problems yet. I'm waiting to see if that foam-like material will start to crack, and if so, I'll come back and update this review.
Overall, this is a 5-star product. No drawbacks, all plusses. I'd buy these to give as gifts! Love 'em.
