Personal Review

"I've had a great experience using the Sennheiser HD280 Pro (Old) Headphones. They are durable, comfortable and the sound quality is excellent overall. Yes, they do have a couple of minor downsides like the initial tight fit and a slight loss of audio detail at the extreme ends, but these are easily outweighed by the many positives. Overall, they're versatile headphones that I highly recommend to music lovers and amateur music makers."

Bass Response
The headphones present an impressive bass response, thorough and robust, yet non-intrusive compared to some rival brands. The low frequencies are crystal clear, free from artificial boosts, delivering proper bass effects that are pleasing to the ears.
Treble Detail
The headphones provide a fairly well-rounded treble detail. However, as some reviews point out, they may lose trace amounts of audio detail at very high frequencies, but it doesn't significantly impact the overall experience.
Midrange Clarity
The Sennheiser HD 280 Pro shines with its midrange clarity—every tone across the entire frequency range is accurate. Clear mids and highs, and crystal clear vocals make it an excellent headphone.
