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 !
With that being said, with proper EQ adjustment these do sound really nice. For around $100 these are a very good buy. I still recommend them, but if you like a little more bass (not even "bass head" level, but just a normal to slightly above normal amount) then keep that in mind before you buy.
To be clear, I did read all of the reviews so I was aware of the lack of bass. I went ahead and pulled the trigger anyway, because I did not expect it to be this deficient. Even my slim JVC over ear headphones have vastly superior bass output.
I still give these 4 stars due to the noise isolation & comfort of the pads. Increase the bass output on the next revision & I'll give ya 5 stars.
-In high school, I wore these things every day in my computer classes.
-In college, I have worn them every day during my commute to and from school to listen to music and Youtube videos. As a motion design student, I often use my headphones during classes so that I am not disturbing other students with the sounds of my current project (or just to block out the noise coming from other people's computers.) Although they get hot after wearing them for a long time, these things are surprisingly comfortable. Sometimes, when I am listening to music, my playlist will end and I will continue to wear the headphones because I'm so focused that I don't realize there is no longer any music playing.
-I even took them to Japan when I went on a study abroad trip last summer. I wore them on the plane to watch a movie, and used them several times during the trip. In Japan, I found out that a student I was rooming with had the same headphones! I love these things.
ANYWAY, lets do the good-ol' Pro/Con thing:
-Portable (just be sure to extend the headband all the way before collapsing)
-Durable (I even sat on them once, although I may have been very lucky. I don't recommend testing their strength!)
-Comfortable (I happen to love around-the-ear headphones. If you don't like this style, then these may not be for you)
-They do get hot after a while. This bothers some people more than others
-It IS plastic, which means it can break if you're not careful
-The pad on the headband isn't attached to anything and just sort of grips the band. It may fall off, but its easy to put back on
-Although they are portable, they are kind of big
-Sometimes I feel silly wearing them in public :P
I am not too picky when it comes to sound quality, so for me these headphones are "more than good enough." These are definitely MY favorite headphones for listening to my music. I know that some people really like the sound quality and some people say it's "okay." If this is important to you, do some more digging.
