“ Manufacturer: Sennheiser / Model: HMD 280 Pro / headphone (ear-cup). „
I like music and I like to listen to it LOUD. Unfortunately others don't always share my passion, so rather than being antisocial I very often resort to headphones. In-ear buds have only limited use when it comes to preventing sound leakage, so if you're looking to cocoon yourself in your own musical world I have discovered headphones like this to be the best option.
The headphones are predominantly black in appearance, but have a silver finish. As well as the headphones themselves, the package comes with a user manual and UniMatch plug adaptor. The sided coiled cable has a reaching distance of around 2.5 metres, which is useful only up to a point. If you are looking to use the headphones while out and about the long cable can present a hazard, and in addition to that you might find yourself having to sling it over your shoulder just to ensure you don't get tangled up in it.
One of the best features of the Sennheiser HMD 280 Pro headphones is their snug fitting (what the manual boasts of as a Supra-Aural Design). The cushioned area around the ears is wide, so even though the headphones clamp firmly around your head you do not feel as though you are stuck in a vice-like grip. The reversible, rotating ear cups are ideal for those who enjoy DJing, as they afford simple single sided monitoring, and there is also a side microphone (super-cardioid).
For those who appreciate bass, these headphones are probably one of the best models around. The 30mm diameter drivers deliver excellent sound quality through aid of high-energy Neodymium magnets and gold plated plugs for reliable transmission. If anything the bass can be a little full on at times, and you might have to readjust the settings on your music device to compensate for this. The components within the headphones responsible for delivering high quality are extremely effective, and I have discovered that even at the highest volumes there is little to no distortion of sound, or leakage of sound.
Despite the cumbersome cable length the headphones are ideal in many respects for traveling. I usually only use the headphones at home, but the design is so compact, and the weight (118g) so slight that they would easily fit into your bag and not noticeably weight you down. This is a great set of headphones for the price, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much they delivered. Recommended.
