Outside Noise Isolation
Perfect in every aspect. Listening is an endless pleasure!
Sansui 5000x, 12.06.2020
I have never been a headphone fan, nor have ever considered buying Sennheiser, because I couldn't afford the more expensive models.
I have already owned the following headphones:
Audiotechnica ATH-M30x - Nice quality but there was an annoying frequency gap. Probably I have had a faulty unit, because I have listened to the ATH-M20x and they sounded absolutely acceptable.
Audiotechnica ATH-M50x - Nice quality but at that price point I don't expect such a disco sound.
Philips SHP-9500 - so bright that my years almost started bleeding. Don't understand why it is so praised in internet.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 Ohm - Amazing quality. The most cute and comfortable headphones I have ever had! Unfortunately, quite demanding towards the source. The high frequencies are a bit sharp to me, especially when the source is poor. Otherwise, a great professional tool!
AKG K171 mkII - very decent headphones. As many AKG headphones, it lacks a bit of low end to me. Not very comfortable but has a very pleasant sound. I enjoyed it a lot!
AKG K240 mkII - It also lacks depth in the low end. Has a bit boomy and echoing sound to me. Material quality is no match with the others, but it is durable and at that price it is a very nice allrounder.
AKG K271 mkII - decent headphones. Sounded to me as a mixture of the above two. Sound wise, the K171 mkII are superior than the K271 and K240, but the last two are more comfortable in my opinion.
I was really tired of headphones with recessed mids (cheap commercial tricks), lack of depth, dryness, frequency gaps, sharp high frequency peaks, impedance issues and etc.
Unfortunately didn't find what I was looking for, so I bought a Sennheiser HD 280 Pro half an year ago from pure curiosity.
I also found them strange looking at first glance as many people do.
Sound wise, the HD 280 Pro is the best headphone I have ever listened to.
Never felt such pleasure from listening to the music, even on decent stereo speakers and much more expensive headphones than the listed above. I often realize that it is 04:00 o'clock in the morning, but never get tired of listening.
Sound is so balanced, full bodied, with natural timbre, warmth and all it's beauty that makes listening to all kinds of music and sources an endless pleasure...
Very universal headphone - sounds great on every source I have connected it to.
In a world where marketing has replaced quality long ago, I didn't really expect to find such a great product.

Outside Noise Isolation
It is a good set of headphones.
Zsemle, 13.09.2020
I am using these headphones while playing on my saxophone. I use it to listen to backing tracks, the metronome, and for tuning. This is the best and most expensive headphones I've ever bought, so keep that in mind.
I am using it with my Samsung phone, and it is able to drive it with an acceptable volume for my preferences.

They provide sufficient noise isolation to feel safe - regarding my hearing - which was a very important factor in choosing this specific model. The detail in the sound is really good. The volume at which I listen to music on it has to be way lower than I thought, cause it feels like it's hurting my ears otherwise. The highs feel sharp. I'd not say there is something wrong with the product in this regard though.

The comfort could be a bit better, the material and the closed nature of the headphones make your ears hot, and it will get sweaty where there is contact with your skin. The ear cups clamp your head with considerable force, which needs some getting used to. It didn't take long for me.
The biggest issue for me is the coiled cable. I would have preferred a straight one, as this just hangs in the air between my neck and whatever I am connected to, pulling on my head. Or pulls the stuff I connect it to. While going over my hands and the saxophone, it is quite cumbersome. It is difficult to see what problem this type of cable is solving.
It does fit very securely on my head though, even with the mentioned issues.

The build quality is cool. All plastic, but the good kind.

All in all, 5 star means "very good product" on this site, and this is definitely a very good product.

Danny_, 18.05.2021
I use these for tracking and mixing. There is no audio bleed for tracking which is great.
I am getting far more faithful mixes using these than my monitors and untreated room.
They are pretty comfy for long periods considering they clamp on pretty tight around the ears.

Outside Noise Isolation
still great after 3 years
Theodor theodyne, 22.02.2021
Sound flat and with a tight bass- even better than my last head phones which were labelled 'noise isolating' at isolation.
Use for mixing, but also leisure and so far no faulty connections or any problems with foam deteriorating.
Perhaps an odd fit compared to some headphones and get a bit hot hence the 3 star comfort. Also pretty much requires an extension chord due to the curly cable- would much rather just a long straight cable or a socket for a jack.
