Evidently, I needed to do somthing about this conflict of interest (my hearing vs playing drums), and I decided that the best route to go down would be to get a really good pair of isolation headphones. Which I did.
The HD280's lower sound levels significantly, meaning my drums & cymbals are not as loud, and the music I'm playing into my ears doesn't have to be as loud - All of which is fantastic. The same applies in other situations - In a car, all talking disappears, as does tyre and wind noise. This means you can listen to your music at a lower volume, and in turn not damage your hearing, and extend the battery life of your CD or MP3 player.
The sound quality is also fantastic, when using the HD280's, things will pop out of your music you have never heard before, new instruments, sounds, and somtimes even the band talking after or before songs. It is a completely revolutionary experiance.
The headphones are comfortable to wear for an extended length of time, and are not to heavy. The cable is coiled up, which means it very rarely gets snagged on anything, or tangled up. The ear & head pads, and the cable are all also easily replacable. The headphones also fold in a large variety of different fashions, you should be able to fit them into a bad one way or another!
Overall, a fantastic purchase.
The sound is as good as the recording (in other words, IF the recording is good, the sound will amaze you - but the headphones will not mask any imperfections of the recording!).
I got them only yesterday, so can't comment on the durability - but they seem very solid - go ahead, drop them on the floor! I can say, however, that I found them comfortable even after several hours of non-stop listening. They also block the unwanted noise (including my noisy colleagues at work) very effectively.
In short, a great buy - I am sure there are lighter and cheaper headphones out there, but I wouldn't bother - in my (rather extensive experience), this is a superb buy.
The sound is very finely balanced, the bass is not over done but drops very low, you will hear each string on that double bass. The mids have fantastic punch and the treble will make your ears tingle.
The closed back, ear muff pads and vice like grip mean the background noise just melts away, so you don't have to max out your player! Plug them in to a dedicated headphone amp for the best sound.
Just be mindful of the volume, these will really make your ears ring if not careful.
And yes, you will look silly in public.
These are fairly large over-the-ear headphones, although they do fold down to either go smaller or flat so you can put them in a drawer or briefcase. They are extremely comfortable and don't cause any discomfort; I've worn them for 5 hours at a stretch before with no problems.
Next, the sound quality. The first thing you'll notice if you're using these with an IPod or similar is that you can turn the volume down to half the usual level, because the sound is no longer leaking out to the surrounding environment. If anything this means you should be a bit careful of having these on full blast as they could do some serious damage. In fact when I'm on holiday I just plop these on a lampshade and use them as speakers. They're that good.
Finally, the sound isolation. Wear these on a plane and you don't hear the background chatter and engine noise. Wear them on the Victoria tube line and the screeching of metal on metal won't penetrate your skull. Use them to play computer games at 2am in the morning whilst your partner is sleeping in the next room and she won't hear a thing.
If only everyone who listened to music on a bus or a train had a pair of these we wouldn't be subjected to so much noise pollution. But if you have a pair of these, you won't care.
Best. Gadget. Ever.
As i searched a forum post explained to me why these headphones are the greatest if you're looking for some headphones around £80-100 price range.
I thought, heck why not look at these. All specs matched, everything just seemed to fit for an extremely well put price!
YOU will definitely be bighting onto your bargain once you acquire some of these headphones.
I now have these headphones on my ears whilst writing this review. They're so comfortable, its unrealistic. They fit perfectly around my ears and are comfortably squished on my head for that boost in support. They're extremely sturdy and im almost certain you shouldn't worry about breaking these headphones nor that beast of a cable!
As sound quality comes. THESE are just so god dam intense. I had before purchased some Sony bass headphones, apparently made for bass heads. I wouldn't be too keen to judge other headphones on any different aspect of sound until you try these sennheisers. The high's are just crisp, i am hearing the audience talking in an x factor video whilst the performer is singing!! It is unreal! Bass drops to some insane amounts and will vary to fit the perfect needs of that song. It almost takes control of the music when its playing.
These are some serious headphones for them audio head people out there. THEY'RE LOUD! Lets just get that out the way. I have a Fiio E6 amp running with these, and they output some serious volume.Read more ›
