    "These headphones are very comfortable and lightweight for their size. The sound is nicely balanced without too much bass. My favorite feature is the noise canceling effect. I can be in a crowded room without hearing everyone else. The minimal leakage also means I don't get any complaints from other people."

    "I have two sets of these that I have used for a few years. It seems the HD280 headset is made of poor construction materials. The Ear pads, and top head pad are shedding. Further the plastic of the headband is splitting and creaking. This is a known issue yet they continue to sell them. A piece just broke completely off of the headband. I am not hard on equipment and have used much audio gear for over 15 years. Headsets in this price range should last 5 years not 1. Worse I just got my adult Son a set for his birthday before I realized how bad these were. Sennheiser should at least make replacement parts besides ear pad and cord. These beak even when trying to take care of them."
