If you are listening to MP3s encoded at 64 Kbps, the reality is the headphones aren't going to make that much of a difference. However, if you are picky about your music, listening to faily non-compressed MP3s, CDs, or records (like, on vinyl), headphones can make a huge impact. And for the money, you'll have a hard time beating these headphones. The sound reproduction is great and you'll notice the difference and the Sennheiser quality immediately. They perform great throughout the sound range, with an especially good bass. From classical, to blue grass, to punk, to ambient, I have yet to find a genre that doesn't sound great in these headphones.

They are big, fitting over ear with lots of padding. This, along with the closed design (as opposed to your average Grado headphone with an open design) acts to block out other sound from the room, giving you a great sense of isolation. The closed design leads to a little sound distortion, but the fact that my coworkers no longer complain about my music selection no matter how loudly I turn it up is well worth it.

The headband also has lots of padding and the size adjusts, ensuring a good fit for most anyone. I happen to have a big head, and these expand plenty big to fit even me. The ear peices twist and fold, allowing the headphones to be pretty compact for travel (and they are great on a plane).

The long cord (with a spiral twist, so it expands and contracts well) prevents you from being teathered to your desk/console.

I used these for a few months. First, the sound quality is pretty decent for a closed headphone. There are certainly better sounding headphones out there for less money, but these have a good enough sound quality to price ratio that I can recommend them. The actual build quality is not awful, but it's not up to the standards as some of Sennheiser's other headphones are at, which is to be expected given the huge price disparity. Finally, the clamp. These headphones will absolutely dominate your head. They block out just about any noise because they clamp your head like a vice! They clamp so hard that they hurt! I personally can not wear them for longer than thirty minutes because they hurt my head and my ears so much. This can be fixed to an extent by placing them onto a set of books and letting them stretch out, but the clamp still remains. In the end, I had to get rid of these headphones because of the lack of comfort. Admittedly, I have a large head, so these may be okay for those people out there with smaller heads.

Prefect headphones!

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

Great headphones! 10 of 10!

Sound Quality
I love how great the sound quality is with these headphones. Sounds are balanced and are very clear. I've never had any issues with bass. These headphones take listening to music to a different level. I'm an edm junkie and I had always used earbuds but after buying these headphones, I'll never use anything else. They block out external noise as well. Someone could be standing next to me yelling and I wouldn't hear it when wearing these headphones.

Comfort
Wearing the headphones is quite comfortable. It doesn't squeeze or hurt my ears at all. It's the perfect size. It was a little heavy at first but I quickly got used to them.

Design
I love how these headphones fold up. They become compact and easy to travel around with. The cord is a great length and padding on these headphones is perfect.

Durability
I've had my headphones for about a year and they have held up very well with minimal signs of wear.

Good for price!

By 

from USA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

These headphones are considered "DJ Headphones" as they have mobility to flip it up and listen through one ear when dj'ing. While I am not a DJ my only gripe is that for DJ headphones you might actually be better off with Beats or some other pair that enhances the low end as it might get over shadowed in a loud club. They happen to be great though for studio listening and have a pretty good sound.

Great quality recording head phones

By 

from USA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

Sennheiser Headphones, are excellent quality, for recording digital tracks, perfect for at home producers. Sennheiser offers comfortability and a snug fit, to be able to pick up on any background or "outside" noise when recording. Overall its useful to get good quality sound recordings, and performs above average compared to its price.

Sound Quality
The sound Quality on these headphones are almost perfect, of course you might get extra noise reduction, and a higher sound in higher priced headphones, but for your money this is the way to go. This is perfect for at home recording use, and can be used to amplify music rather recording, playback, or just listening to some of your favorite tunes. The sound quality is extremely powerful, as these headphones can be heard by themselves when your volume is only at a minimal level. There is no need to ever "blast" your systems sound level, to get a good quality sound from these headphones, as they pick up very well on a reduced sound level.

Comfort
These headphones offer excellent comfotability as they provide a snug fit, with a pad "headband" that enhances the fit of the headphones. They are easily adjustable, and can fit around almost any size head. With a padded cushion on each ear piece this offers even extra computability for people who have sensitive ears, or are not to keen on ear buds.

Design
The design is pretty standard, great quality but not very flashy, perfect for anyone who is looking for a comfortable but yet good quality set of "recording" style headphones. No huge emblems or logos, standard color, but get the trick done, blend very easy with other equipment and are designed like many "over the head" headphones.

Durability
These headphones, are overall perfect in their durability, they can withstand a fall, do not scratch easily, and adjust to fit any size head. They maintain their color and do not fade overtime, and sound just as powerful from day one and on.

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

My overall rating for this product would have to be an A++! Everything about this pair of headphones is a plus! Especially the comfy soft pillow like cushions that cover your ears. Not only are they extremely comfortable but they also do an awesome job keeping out external noises.

decent headphone for its price

By 

from San Gabriel, CA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

If you google around the net, you can find out that this Sennheiser HD280 professional headphones got great expert reviews everywhere, and that's not a joke. That's because it really is that good with this headphones based on its price. There're not that many headphones at this price range to sound as crisp and rich in bass than this headphones. Unless you're willing to pay for premium with those premium headphones, then this will be a very good choice for its price. It blocks out other sounds because it is a closed ear type of headphones which helps to keep the things you listened to by yourself so no one can hear what you are listening to. It got great audio quality with rich bass for those heavy metal stuffs or crisp and clear sound for those acoustics bunch. The only thing that I can think of as a con is that you have to replace the earpad from time to time as it isn't as durable as I would've liked. The piece of foam is cover in cheap nylon which rips and tears as time went on. So be prepare to replace the earpads if you use this a lot. I would recommend this headphones to anyone looking for a decent headphones for a budget price.

The Sennheiser HD280 Pro Headphones work great

By 

from Skokie, IL

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

The Sennheiser HD280 headphones provide excellent fidelity and sound at a reasonable price, plus the folding design makes it particularly easy to use.

Sound Quality
really nice fidelity for straight ahead jazz. Bass, mid range and treble all reproduce accurately. These sound great! While these are not noise canceling headphones, they do provide noise reduction against external sounds.

Comfort
large, soft cups fit comfortably on my ears, external noise reduction is substantial but not complete,

Design
I like the folding ear cups. Plus the functionality and sound is excellent. The 3 meter cord is long enough for whatever use is needed.

Durability
These have lasted for more than a year of regular use and are still going strong.

Good sound

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

The sennheiser DJ headphones model HD 280 pro guarantees a good vibrant sound, that is close to your ear, in large part as these are not loose phones, they are over the head and clasp well and then you put them over your head, they feel snug and all you are doing them is listening to the high quality sound. The head phones are foldable which is perk and especially useful if you travel. Not especially hard to carry and made of good quality. The material of the cups and over head is soft to touch and the head phones last long with use. They are good head phones for listening to meditative music that might have softer beats because of the proximity to your ears. Also on cold days it keeps the wind out. Good heaphones.

Great return to old school headphones.

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

After years of breaking earbuds, I decided to try the old schools 80's headphones. This product is a great update. They are very comfortable. I feel secure doing many things with these on without fearing they will snap. The sound is improved from the headphones I remember.
