What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony MDR-7506/1 Professional Headphone, Black
  • The build quality is top notch as you would expect from this price range.
  • The pads fit almost exactly around my ears and block most of the outside.
  • They're comfortable, capable of being worn for hours on end, day after day, without even a hint that your ears are being forced to conform to a shape they don't like.
  • The build is quite robust and compact at the same time
  • They are rugged, and fold down so perfect to carry over when I head down to the club on Fridays.
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
  • Sturdily constructed and surprisingly light. Curly cord is great.
  • They are comfortable and light so I have no concerns of them getting uncomfortable with prolonged use.
  • A very good buy - lightweight and good to wear for lengthy periods.
  • I usually only use the headphones at home, but the design is so compact, and the weight (118g) so slight that they would easily fit into your bag and not noticeably weight you down.
  • The only real downside to this is the weight, otherwise its a really good headset!

What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-7506/1 Professional Headphone, Black
  • I have rediscovered lots of music that just sounds amazing through these headphones
  • The sound is bright and crisp, with incredible detail. You hear things that you previously didn't appreciate in music, thats my experience anyway.
  • They also fold down very nicely so that they fit onto the palm of one hand.
  • These are better then my Bose, better then my Beats, and better than any headphones I can recall using in a very long time.
  • I was expecting these headphones to have weak bass, but the bass is nice and strong - clear, sharp, you can hear it.
Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
  • Very clear reproduction of lows to highs. Sound cancelling is excellent from both inside and out.
  • Bought them to use mainly with my electronic drum kit and they do the job very well. The bass reproduction is particularly good.
  • The sound quality is amazing and the noise cancellation is just as impressive.
  • The sound and clarity are outstanding and great at all volumes in all ranges.
  • Excellent set of phones that handle high volume levels comfortably.
