My impression of closed over ear headphones Sennheiser HD 280 PRO is a bit controversial. Being a great audio device with an excellent sound delivery they seemed to me not really comfortable and here I will tell more Sennheiser HD 280 PRO specs. Hope my Sennheiser HD 280 PRO review will help you with the right choice. I would call it a pair of above average wired headphones of German production.
Sennheiser HD 280 PRO specs show that it is quite compatible with mobile low impedance devices. Its impedance is 64 Ohm. A decent frequency response of 8Hz-25KHz is enough for most ears and to reproduce a clear high quality sound. But that’s not all for a great audio delivery. The sensitivity of 113 dB impresses. So, let’s check Sennheiser HD 280 PRO specs in action.
First, the soundstage is narrow and intimate for the closed cups design. The music seems to sound directly in your head that is natural for closed back headphones. The vocals and mids are balanced. The imaging of Sennheiser HD 280 PRO places vocals and instruments forward on the stage. Not the clearest sound I’ve heard. In general, pretty neutral. But I would like more clarity for the mids. But I like their strong bass that still leaves room for high and medium ranges. The audio reproduction is great for critical listening with its transparency and details. The closed cups stop leakage a bit in a natural way.
Unfortunately, the audio cable is undetachable and is not very comfortable and safe if it tangles over something and in the terms of portability. 1.3 m/4.2 ft length is enough for home listening and carrying out.
They are quite bulky by design but very light with 285 g/10 oz of weight. The headband and cups have thick padding. They feel tight on the head and fatiguing for long wearing. The closed cups are also not breathable and make ears sweat if used long. They are foldable to carry and store in a more compact size.
