Sennheiser has enhanced its classic HD 280 PRO monitoring headphones ($99.95) with a new design and improved comfort for the wearer. The company is exhibiting the upgraded model at the AES Convention in Los Angeles this week, in booth #411 and in Demo Room 503.
The most visible change is the headband, which features differently designed padding that keeps the sensitive fontanelle area of the head free from pressure. This, along with a weight of 285 grams, ensures stress-free use for long hours. The headband length can be adjusted in more than a dozen increments, while the swivel joint and the rotatable ear cups ensure a perfect fit around the ear. Soft ear pads round off the comfort features.
The dynamic HD 280 PROs boast a THD of 0.1% and a detailed, linear reproduction, spanning a frequency response of 8 to 25,000 kHz. Their impedance of 64 ohms ensures universal connectivity. The headphones feature a single-sided, coiled cable with 3.5 mm/6.3 mm plug.
The headphones also offer noise isolation of up to 32 dB.
