Hi BluesInLondon,

I use a pair of closed back Sennheisers with my DP, and I can't help thinking that the closed back is making the bass sound somewhat boomy. Did you have the same impression with your previous heaadphones?

Thank you,
Paolo

i ended up getting the HD380 as well. in the end i realized i can't have open ones right now living with so much ambient noise around. i might get an open pair down the road when i move to a quieter neighbourhood. i like the sound coming out of these headphones and they're very comfortable and hopefully durable. i used the $30 discount coupon so got it for $170.

one thing though: the padding of display unit at guitar centre was completely worn out so i'll likely have to replace that part in a year or two which runs around 30 bucks.

Dr Popper is right. i have the Sennheiser HD380 and I am extremely pleased with sound, comfort and quality. I paid $199, you can find many decent sets in that price range. However, headphones are personal thing. Sometimes I like to switch it up even with my Bose buds. Anyway, check out the link to see the HD380 if interested
