I really only bought these for it's technical quality for it's price ( considering I was on a budget ) I can sit here for hours on end just listening to music with it's amazing quality. A problem I had with other headphones is, after wearing them for a fair amount of time, they would begin becoming uncomfortable, and/or hurting my ears. This pair however, does not do this. Very comfortable, even for very extended amounts of time. This only downside that's even worth noting would be, it's not the prettiest pair around, wouldn't call it ugly, but it isn't the most attractive out there. That's really all I have on it, so to wrap it up. It's got good quality sound, it's comfortable,very lightweight and durable, but not the most attractive. Note: I waited 6 weeks to review this product to get a good feel for it.
I'm very impressed with the HD 280 Pro. It not only offers high quality sound but the overall comfort is great. It gives natural sound to the music allowing the music to be heard the way it was meant to. The bass is awsome, considering the fact the headphones tune out most sounds allowing the bass to be heard even more as well as the rest of the music. The comfort is great. The headband and earphones are very reinforced also cushioning. The one thing I will say is when I listen to the 280's with my prescription glasses and turn my head they lose a slightly noticeable amount of sound, not a lot but noticeable and may be a result of my glasses being in the way or being out of alignment. Non the less take off the glasses and they're perfect.
I have had this headphones I think for more then 6 years... They have been dropped for more then five hundred times and been used by mother and two little brothers. I never had a problem with a cord or the sound, they are so durable!!! The sound, especially the bass is so crystal clear! I would recommend this to everyone! The only downside it has after few hours of use ears hurt and become a bit sweaty. Other then that, they are perfect!
