i just received my senn hd280 and...they're terrible! why are these even recommended by anyone? the sound is mushy and there is no bass whatsoever. none. i did an A/B test with my grado sr80 and the grados were better in every category. people complain about the grados being uncomfortable but they are much more comfy than the senns. the only plus about these 280s is that they are easy to drive. they were even louder on the same volume level than the sr80 amplified by a perreaux headphone amp. if you 280 owners want a much better headphone for a much better price, check out the grados.
