I went to lunch at Heaven on Seven on Friday and had my favorite dish New Orleans BBQ Shrimp. I love this place and try to stop by every chance I get. Since I was right by Virgin Megastore I decided to pick up the new Senn HD280 closed headphone. It's a rather plain looking headphone with plastic all around. The first thing I would like to do is replace the pleather ear pads. They look very ugly and in the summer time will probably make you sweat like a pig. The headphones fold like the Sony MDR-V6 but are not as compact. Warning - watch your fingers when you fold these headphones so you don't pinch your fingers like I did. My initial impressions of the sound are very good. They don't have the bass extension of the V6 or the Beyer DT 770 but the top end may be a littler better. Bass was well defined though and cymbal hits sounded clear and had very good definition to them. Female vocals weren't as warm as I like but were clear. Overall a good headphone that doesn't do anything really badly.
