PLAY AS YOU PAY
Nothing gets you right up close to your sound like a good pair of headphone monitors. In a live setting, they let you monitor your music without distraction. In the studio, headphones offer the isolation necessary for pristine recorded tracks. Regardless of your intended use, Sennheiser's HD280 Pro headphones have the features and performance you need to produce professional-quality audio. With seriously high output and extreme isolation, they're great cans for studio drummers -- or any producer who wants zero outside distraction from their tracks.

Ambient noise reduction

DJs rely on headphones to cue tracks before sending them to the main mix. When the bass is thumping and the dance floor is packed, it can be difficult to hear yourself think, let alone hear the cue mix in your headphones. The HD280 Pro's closed-back design cuts external sound by up to 32 dB, effectively eliminating distractions. DJ's will also appreciate the single-cable design for one-ear monitoring.

Superior Isolation for recording

HD280 Pro headphones are just as helpful in the studio as they are on stage. Musicians need to hear what their bandmates are playing to lock in the groove. but you don't want this sound bleeding into their tracks. With a headphone amp and enough HD280s for everyone, you're sure to get pristine results. The thick, padded ear-cups keep the monitor mix inside while providing comfort for extended tracking sessions. Weighing in at only 220 grams, the HD280 Pro lets you record all day without fatigue.

Convenient storage and long life

In small home and project studios, space is always a concern. Sennheiser's innovative design allows these headphone monitors to fold up for convenient storage, keeping your studio organized and functional. Rough treatment can damage any set of headphones, but virtually every component on the HD280 Pro can be easily replaced. Whether it is the adjustable headband, the collapsible earpieces, or the coiled cable, you can fix what's broken for years of quality performance.

Features:

- Collapsible, rotating earpieces

Sound: Well, I just bought these a few days ago and ill just say WOW!! After using consumer grade phones for a while these are definately an upgrade. Remember these take a few days to Break In...at 1st I was a little disappointed but after a few days of playing different types of music at about half volume and sometimes at 75% these phones have really began to sound freakin awesome. I mean really good...I gave them a 9 on sound because im sure there is something out there that sonds better but for me whooaaaa....I couldnt imagine it...Great job Sennheiser!!! Feature: What can I say its headphones...lol Ease of Use: plug it in and go.... Quality: No problems I can see but I don't intend on abusing them so they seem fine for my use... Value: In this price range I dont think you could do better except maybe some Grado's but I needed closed back not open... Manufacturer Support: Havent had to use them
