Sennheiser HD-280 Pro

Over the past couple of weeks I have been playing with the Sennheiser HD280 Pro Headphones. These are some fairly heavy duty professional monitor headphones offering reasonable attenuation of background noise and a very visually uninspiring brick-outhouse build quality that boasts user-serviceable components. I’ll be posting a review soon, but suffice to say these are no-nonsense professional headphones with a strong emphasis on doing exactly what they say on the tin rather than looking pretty. They’ll resist a fair level of abuse and clamp securely onto my head like an… err… disgruntled giant crab. Alas they’re not as comfortable as I’d like for long listening sessions.
