HD 280 PRO Closed Back Circum-Aural Headphones description:

The Sennheiser HD280 Pro is a pair of professional headphones designed for studio and DJ use.

The Sennheiser HD280 Pro headphones are closed-back, meaning they are perfectly suitable for monitoring applications, and their circum-aural design provides incredible isolation. The HD280 Pro headphones will appeal especially to DJs, as their exceptional 32dB attenuation of ambient noise makes them particularly useful in high-noise environments.

The HD280 Pro headphones provide an accurate, clear sound for critical monitoring and mixing, and the padded headband provides added comfort for hours of continued wear. A single-sided, coiled cable can provide up to 3 metres of cable length, and features a 3.5mm stereo mini jack plug with 6.3mm stereo jack adapter.

Customer Reviews

Expertise/Experience: phonetician

Pros: +
It's very comfortable, which was the sole reason I chose this one really. The sound quality is great too.

Cons: -
I couldn't think of any. It would be a bit too big if you're using it on the move but I only use it at work so I don't have a problem with that.

Expertise/Experience: Audiophile

Pros: +
The sound quality is superb, for a set of this price. Excellent frequency range, smooth sound texture, tight response to transients in the so-important mid-range. Very comfortable for prolonged sessions, despite the fact that they are closed cups. I use them for both recreational music listening and music mixing and sound design: they perform very well on all counts.

Cons: -
The only point I am worried about is the material used for the earpads enclosure. It feels very thin and soft; on one hand this probably increases the comfort to begin with but I fear it will have a short life. Having said that, one can always buy replacement pads... I hope.

Pros: +
Clear sound, true to my ears, more bass than a DT100. Folds up neatly for storage/transportation. Good sound isolation. Overall they feel solid and would great for use when recording and checking mixes.

Cons: -
Quite tight on the head, so might not be a headphone to wear all day long, especially compared to a HD600/650 although those are open back. The cable ends in a mini jack, that requires a screw on adapter. SO would be a pain if you lost the supplied adapter.

The sound is very good and cuts out just about all background noise also very comfortable to wear for long periods.

Good sound quality for mixing and monitoring, Sennheiser is hard to go wrong with. Really enjoyable for listening to music in general
