I just got my HD280 Pros in a "sort of trade" deal.

They have yet to break in fully, and I need to spend some time with them, so I will not give impressions. Besides, these cans already have a wealth of information on them on these boards.

But I will make one comment... Magicthyse is truly not kidding about the dork factor involved with these headphones. They are like a big clamp on my head. I think it helps if you have a big head or a big afro to fill some of the space on the sides. They look better with my hat off in this regard. But alas, I think that is part of what makes them so fun and unique
. I'm gonna enjoy prancing 'round the library being known as "the dork with the clamp on his head".

*snigger*

could be worse - try the Philips HP890s

Then again, try some not-so-dorky poses, perhaps "look at me, I'm a dj scratchin' it up on my wheels of steel"

Too bad they didn't have the HD 280s back in the late 70's; Doctor J could of made a killing in endorsements.

There is such a thing as too much info.


Lobster, you ought too see what I look like with the HP-1s on. I literally scare the dog....maybe it's not the headphones though.

That was just SO funny.
Thanks for brightening my evening. I think I'll stick with my V6s for a closed, accurate phone.
