Pros: Still going strong after 7 years.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsCan't be beat for the price

Pros: I've had these for around 6 years, and they still work great. For the money you can't do better in terms of sound and durability.

Cons: A bit utilitarian looking, but it doesn't really matter when you're wearing them.

Other Thoughts: Those who complain about the audio quality don't seem to grasp the concept of an equalizer. Every pair of speakers and headphones is different, and if you don't adjust the equalizer to match, they will sound bad.

5 out of 5 eggs6 Years and still kicking

Pros: This pair of headphones has lasted me at least six years, maybe seven. They're not really 'audiophile' headphones, but they do sound amazing for gaming and music. I've put these things though daily abuse for years, and they still work great.

Cons: They can get a little tight along the top of my head. Also, the padding on the top unlatches from time to time, but it's fairly easy to put it back on.

Other Thoughts: Awesome headphones for the price. I don't use these for any kind of music production, but I can say they're perfect for everyday use. They're bulky, so they might not be too practical for walking around with. I just use mine on my PC.

1 out of 5 eggsBack to HD 428 for me

Pros: They were packaged well and looked good. They have a 6.3mm jack included.

Cons: Where do I even begin? They clamped onto my head too hard compared to my old HD 428s and were painful to wear for more than 45 minutes or so. The sound quality was abysmal. The bass was practically non-existent and everything sounded tinny, like headphones I would buy from the dollar store. I've read that some HD 280s a break-in period of anywhere from 100-500 hours, which to me makes them completely worthless. I should not have to break in a pair of reportedly good headphones from a well-established manufacturer that is otherwise known for quality products. After trying these for two weeks (my estimate would be 75-100 hours of actual use) with no improvement, I gave them away (a friend is a guitarist and has been looking for headphones that he can plug into his amp's 6.3mm jack) and bought a pair of factory refurbished HD 428s, which I might add were perfectly comfortable and had excellent audio quality right out of the box, unlike these HD 280s which cost three times more.

Other Thoughts: If you have to break in a $100 pair of headphones then you're getting ripped off.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 5 years of almost daily use, still sounds excellent

Pros: In my opinion, the best bang for your buck on a headphone. Excellent sound from a sub $80 set, cancels a fair amount of noise, very durable, comfortable after hours and hours of listening, folds to make for smaller storage. User serviceable parts: after about 3 years of continuous use, I had to replace the head padding. Other parts can be replaced as well (cord, ear padding, etc.). I am surprised at how durable these headphones have been, even after years of folding & unfolding.

Cons: The cord is not the best for use when listening and walking in light clothing cause it is somewhat heavy (works best if you have somewhere to stuff/store the cord such as a jacket). But then again, its a larger set of headphones designed mainly for stationary use.
