The Sennheiser HD 280 PRO are an affordable pair of headphones that have a closed back circumaural technology. You can purchase these headphones for around 105 USD online. I was at first on the fence with the HD 280 PRO because I could not get a good mix with using them. But after a while I started to get use to them and then decided they weren’t that bad once I got to “understand” them. They are very comfortable and you can wear them for hours without them irritating your ears or head. The ear cups are very soft and have a nice cushion on them. The external noise is at bay when wearing the 280 PRO, though they are not true isolation headphones you can still block out most of the external noise with them.

One issue that I have experienced over time using the Sennheiser HD 280 PRO is that after long use with them the ear pads will get worn down bad. You will need to replace them if you use these as your main headphones and put them through a lot of wear and tear. They new ear pads will cost about 20 USD for a pair of them and they are easy to put on.

The HD 280 is a decent set of headphones for the price, but I just really don’t trust them all the way because the low end is a little bit too much for me. It is clean, but it's over done, there is just too much deep bass in these headphones. When I mix I like to have a flat and kind of dull low end. The highs are clean though, and the mids are solid. But for the price of 105 dollars for this pair and then needing to replace the ear pads less than a year later that’s another 20 dollars. They really are not worth the buy, there are a lot of other brands that cost around 150 that sound excellent!
