1 out of 5 eggsNot good

Pros: Functioning headphones, long cord

Cons: Uncomfortable, too tight on my head, hurts to wear them for more than a few minutes

Woefully inferior bass and overall sound compared to my old Sennheisers

Other Thoughts: I bought these to replace a dying pair of Sennheiser HD 428s and I am greatly disappointed in this product. I'm a big Sennheiser fan and have used their products exclusively for years now but this pair of headphones really let me down. While the less expensive HD 428s were comfortable and provided excellent sound, particularly bass, the HD 280 is shockingly subpar. It sounds like the speakers are those cheap, tinny speakers you get in headphones from the dollar store. Well, not THAT bad, but it's closer to that than the excellent sound quality I would expect from Sennheiser. These headphones fit too tightly around my head, pinching in at both sides, making it uncomfortable to wear them for extended periods of time. I will just buy another pair of HD 428s and probably never wear these HD 280s again.

5 out of 5 eggsMoney well spent

Pros: well balanced sound
punchy bass
detailed but not fatiguing treble
little coloring

comfortable compared to old productions

Cons: narrow soundstage (but not bad for a closed monitor)

Other Thoughts: I bought the same model more than 10 years ago but sold it afterwards, not because it sounded bad, but only because the clamping force was too much to bear. After 10 years, owning more than 10 mid/high level IEMs and headphones, I decided to give it another try. I am glad I did!

If you see it on sale for $60 or less, do not hesitate to grab one.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!!!!

Pros: Extremely comfortable. Fit around my ear completely and snugly. Great frequency response. Very long cord

Cons: Cord does not detach from headphones. This is not even really a con, just an observation. As long as I don't destroy the cord I will be just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy

Pros: Sounds Great. Very Comfortable. Great Price.

Cons: Not stylish large profile head band.

Other Thoughts: I use this at my desk, so looks don't matter.

Not as comfortable as my buddy's 300 dollar headphones, but I didn't want to pay 300.

4 out of 5 eggsTypical Sennheiser quality

Pros: Filling-rattling bass, clear highs, great sound stage, tight fit, Sennheiser quality finish.

Cons: Some tinniness. Can become uncomfortable if you wear glasses.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a decent pair of closed-ear headphones under 100 bucks and after looking at several decided on Sennheiser based on past performance with their products. The first thing I listened to was an MP3 of the Rolling Stones, "Midnight Rambler," from "Get Yer Ya-Yas out." Right away I noticed I could hear the placement of the hoots and hollers from the crowd before the Stones begin playing, as if I was standing among the concert-goers. These phones have great 3D imaging (which is also good for movies). The bass is deep, the highs crisp though there is a bit of tinniness. These phones create a tight seal around your ears blocking out external noises, but due to the cushiness of the ear pads are comfortable. However, (as I said) glass frames will be pushed into your head likely causing discomfort after an extended period.

3 out of 5 eggsThey're okay...

Pros: Sounds great with an amp/receiver.

Cons: Ear cushions are cheap. Mine's already breaking! Maybe it's just my big ears since I did have to stretch them to fit. My ears start hurting after a couple hours.

Other Thoughts: I like it overall but I don't like the small tight cushions!

2 out of 5 eggsA disappointment

Pros: Great sound quality when used on my stereo, big step up in volume, headset sound characteristics controls. Sale price was excellent

Cons: Seem to be poorly insulated, a constant background crackling effect whenever I use them on either of my two computers. Loud enough to kill the advantages listed above. The headset itself is very uncomfortable, adjustments area very minimal, the things plain hurt after an hour on my head

Other Thoughts: I expected better from the name brand When I use it on the stereo receiver the interference is subdued but hooked up to either my desktop or laptop computers there is a solid, persistent electronic interference which ruins the listening experience.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's like night and day with these things..

Pros: -Very long cord(very well designed to avoid tangling)
-Nice comfortable fit
-Awesome sound quality
-Great noise-canceling

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I just bought these last week while they were on sale because I needed to replace my old vmoda's. In comparison to my old headphones($120) to these the sound difference was like night and day. They sounded so great I had to mess with my eq settings and man..if this is what music is supposed to sound like I'm already sold to buy another pair.

If your pricing to buy these headphones compared to the ones you can buy in-store. Definable go with newegg you won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome headphones!

Pros: -Awesome noise reduction
-Light weight
-Long Cord
-Good fit
-On Sale!
-Fast Shipping from Newegg

Cons: Didn't buy sooner!

Other Thoughts: These are a great pair of headphones! I have had these headphones for about a month now and I don't know how i lived without them! I have used these at the airport waiting for flights. These puppies blocked out the sound from other noisy passengers so well i felt that i was in my office at home. The sound quality of these headphones is top notch. I use them for listening to music on my desktop at home as well as for some single player gaming. These headphones absolutely blow away every pair of cheap head phones i have ever owned. Buy a pair and see what your music should really sound like!

5 out of 5 eggs6 years awesome!

Pros: Wow! 6 years and finally I am in need of purchasing a new pair. These headphone have served me well. Excellent range, comfortable, and they sound excellent. Especially when paired with a quality sound card!

Cons: The center cushion fell off years ago, but they are still comfortable enough.

Other Thoughts: I'd have no need for another pair, yet recently I ran over the cord with the vacuum and it was torn up pretty good. Recommend? - YES SIR!
