380 pro are far better.

Are they worth returning my 280's for?

Can you specify what is better about them?

post #214 of 354

They're lighter and much more comfortable. For some reason in the UK the 380 pro seem to be cheaper too.

What about sound though?

V6 became my worst hp purchase ever. I preferred every hp before and after it

I've only tried the 280 once so I can't really comment. But the fact is the 380 are a model higher so should sound better.

They're good to use while recording I imagine. It's hard to believe some folks actually use them for listening to music though, but "different strokes...", I guess..Mine have a HUGE peak somewhere around 4 khz

Despite the fact that the FR seems quite flat, they nonetheless sound quite V shaped and coloured. And I really don't believe that the bass on the V6 is more extended than the 7520!

 

Some people are just used to their gear. Which is good ... for them. But not a reason not to make better gear. I very much agree with this Gearslutz post.

Indeed. They're workhorses. They're good for the price. They can be found as monitoring headphones everywhere. They're an easy first choice. Doesn't mean they're the best for mixing.

Both are marketed as monitoring headphones, though. The HD 6 Mix is the one Sennheiser currently pitches for mixing duty:

 

 

The video starts by presenting all three as DJ headphones, but keep listening.

An interesting comparison between two headphones listed in the opening post: the NAD Viso HP50 and the Sennheiser HD 26 Pro.

Thanks for the video. Good advertising, charming even.

I'll say it again. The 7506/V6 are AMAZING for vocal tracking, because the last thing you need is more bass from the headphones to muddy up your own exaggerated perception of your voice's bass frequencies. And they're not half bad for editing. Not a mixing headphone though, although some professionals have gotten really used to them for exactly that.

The HD380's are not at best buy, if I were to return my HD280's I would only get best buy store credit. So what are the best Best Buy headphones for under 150$ for studio use? Should I just keep the HD280's? I cant get market place items at Best Buy with store credit either.

I like these headphones but they are so uncomfortable and clunky

Looking over what best buy has, I don't see anything I'd prefer over the HD280s in the $50-150 range. Though, if there is any way to shift your funds from Best Buy, I'd recommend picking up either an HD25-II or an Amperior for less clunkiness.

I am actually glad to hear this because it means I can be satisfied knowing I have the best headphones I could get. I cant shift the funds from Best Buy, I got the funds from returning a previous purchase I made there. However, I don't think I will be buying from Best Buy again, since they have very little selection.
