    How do these compare with the Beats Mixr's?   (3 Answers)

    Hi I recently cracked the sound of my Beats Mixr's. I was wondering how well these would hold up at high volumes. Thank you.

      They would hold up well, but you should consider the Sennheiser HD280s. They also are pro monitor headphones, they sound almost identical to the HD380s, seem to be built even more sturdily, and are about $100 less! I have both, and the difference in sound between them is so small that it took extensive listening and instant switching between them to hear any difference between them, and it was so subtle that I could write the same review about either of them. Only when your music goes to the very bottom of hearing are the 380s only slightly more solid. You will hear no difference on 99.48% of all music. As to sound, the Beats phones sound artificially boosted somewhat in the midbass, where the Sennheisers may not be quite as strong, but are a more accurate reproduction of the recording. Listen to both, and decide for yourself. Trust your ears.

      I need high quality headphones for sound clarity for medical and general transcription. I need to be able to power through static and isolate treble over bass. Would these do the trick or do you recommend another brand?   (0 Answers)

        Looking for headphones specifically for voice-over work.   (3 Answers)

        I used to have a Sennheiser headphones (with 3.5mm jack) to connect to my Mac for voice over work. I've heard Bose is excellent also have a Sennheiser wireless for TV and music in another room, but need something that is crisp, has good response and overall specs. Willing to spend up to $300 for a pair of exceptional headphones.

          I have 2 pairs of Sennheisers I purchased at BB, but they may not be available depending on where you live. If you can find them, they are the HD 280 Pro and the HD 380 Pro monitor headphones. They are $200 and $300 respectively. They sound almost identical except for some difference in the lowest bass. If you can't find them, Magnolia in Best Buy stores has several headphones that are very natural sounding on music and speech, some of which are in your price range, including some Sennheisers among others. They also have different configurations, such as on-the-ear or over-the-ear. Go and see what they have. Check the headphones in both the regular electronics division on the main sales floor and the Magnolia section to be sure you got the best buy! :-)
