If its a concert bluray I sometimes use my better cans, but the 280's sound good with those too. Some users find the headband tension too tight, but I can wear mine for hours with no discomfort.

 

I wouldn't recommend the HD280s if comfort is a priority. I can't wear my pair for longer than 10 minutes without getting a headache. I can't believe I used them for 2 years, my head is probably smaller now than it was before I bought them.

The comfort rating on these seems to vary pretty widely. As far as not very comfy, that's how I feel about my Grados. The HD280's comfort might depend on the width of the listeners head, and how well you stretch them out. I can wear mine for very long periods with zero discomfort. If I had to rank them out of all my cans for comfort, I'd probably put them second after Denon's (see my profile for list).

I would have to say the sheer clarity, I think they are one of the best headphones on the market for vocals. They come out crisp and clean with lower vocal cords having amazing weight. 

 

I would say the 1R is too coloured and not as detailed in vocals, too smooth.

well, after owning them, i really recommend the hp100. i do not know any other well isolating phone, that combines comfort, isolation great sound and bass down to 20hz as well, as the soundmagic.
