Sennheiser HD-280 PRO Review
Best Noise Cancelling Headphones $50-$100
German engineering at work here, they know how to build headphones that’s for sure. These are the best noise cancelling headphones under $100 range in our opinion. Most all the reviews rave about these headphones and the only negatives we see are they can be tight if you have a big head. If that is a problem you can easily stretch them out a bit before using them. They have pretty extreme isolation on them for a passive noise cancelling headphone. Compared to Bose, Beats By Dre, Tritton, Sony and others these blow them away in the price range and even out of there price range. Great mids and high’s, some say the bass is a little anemic but you can eq that. A lot of other headphones have great bass but it drowns out the mids too much, but these are just right.
-Great passive (no batteries needed) noise cancellation, up to 32 dB of ambient noise attenuation. They also don’t have sound leakage so people next to you won’t hear what you’re listening to or be disturbed.
-Great High’s and Mid’s
-Durable- Many say they’re unbreakable.
-Awesome wide frequency response of 8Hz to 25kHz
-Some say it can be tight if you have a big head, but that’s easy to fix by stretching them out some.
-Some say your ears can get sweaty after a while, but just let them air out and you’re fine.
-Slightly anemic bass, but it can be EQ’ed and many others that have more bass drowned out the mids horribly.
Sennheiser HD-280 PRO
Watch Conan, Leno and many other T.V shows and you will see Sennheiser. They make great quality headphones that last and they put love into there headphones. These have raving reviews and many people couldn’t do without these headphones. They are a step up from the under $50 headphones but can hang with many of the $200 dollar headphones, they’re a great quality headphone for sure.
