  1. my old AKG 240's died after nearly 20 years of service.

    my local GC recommended the HD280.

    Is that a dynamic or a monitor headphone?

    I just bought a pair of HD280s. Nasty! Compared to the other (open back) Sennheisers I've been using - they've got too much middle, and not enough treble. I listened to one of the mixes I'm working on over these, and I just thought "Uh, where's my treble gone?". They sound sorta nasal. Not so pleasant!
  4. interesting.

    i love mine...and i'm an old time AKG user.

    plenty of highend.
