Sennheiser HD 380 PRO headphones review

The huge box easily accommodates headphones and a hard carrying case. Since the ear cups rotate, they can be put in a flat case and carried from place to place, because the case has a special handle. I see such a solution for the first time, and it seems to me successful. In addition to headphones, the case can accommodate both a complete adapter for a “large” jack and a small player.

Appearance and usability

Headphones are made mainly of plastic, metal - only the parts that are most affected - the hinges that attach the cup fixation system to the headband, and, in fact, the base of the headband itself.

The HD 380 is tangibly pressed against the head, due to the large size of the cups, they completely cover the ears. The fit is comfortable as the cups are free to rotate and fold back from the base position. You can sit in headphones for a long time without much discomfort, except that your ears start to sweat, because the acoustic design is closed.

Despite the tightly closed cups, sound insulation is not a trump card of this model, probably due to not very thick plastic. For noisy places, I would not recommend using the HD 380, but in order to just sit in headphones at the computer without disturbing others, they are quite suitable, since they practically do not play outside.

An unpleasant moment is the identification of the left and right headphones. By tradition, the wire departs from the left cup, but the letters L and R are not contrasting - they are simply squeezed out on the headband hinge. Again, they regretted a little “silver”, but in the end it is necessary to determine which earpiece is left and which is right, by wire.

By the way, the HD 380 has a replaceable cable, but don't be fooled - the connector that sticks into the cup is proprietary. I think they will sell this in a branded service center, but it’s better to find out about it in advance, and best of all, stock up on a cable in advance. However, the appearance of the wire does not inspire fear for the future of the headphones, the insulation is thick, due to this (and, of course, due to the twisted design), it is better not to keep the wire suspended.

The headphones were tested with the Hifiman HM-801 player using the Prime Test CD1.

The sound signature of the model is somewhat harsh, with deep and unforced bass, muffled high frequencies.

The low-frequency register is spelled out quite accurately, the bass is almost always in moderation, its presence provides a monolithic and full-bodied sound. The mid frequencies, for my taste, are somewhat forced - due to which there is sharpness and sibilance in the vocals. The intelligibility of the vocal parts is not bad, but the voices do not sound very natural, insipid.

High frequencies do not shine with super-transparency, but I did not have the feeling that something was missing in the music when listening. Getting used to is fast enough.

Dynamic range is quite wide, attack and detail are good. For closed headphones, the stereo panorama is very good, it is not wide, but it has good localization and small volume.

In general, the HD 380s have no musical "addictions", they digest almost any music quite well. There is a slight attraction to "light" genres, but nothing more, something "heavy" headphones are quite capable of reproducing.

Compatibility

With the Apple iPhone 4, the Sennheiser HD 380 PRO headphones played out Commercial Property For Sale in Ngara very badly. Firstly, the insufficient power of the source forces the volume control to be twisted to the maximum. Secondly, the forcing of the midrange became even more noticeable due to insufficient development of the low-frequency register, this is probably also a consequence of a weak amplifier.

Output

For 4 thousand rubles, which are asked for the HD 380 PRO, you can hardly find something with noticeably better sound quality. Headphones are convenient to carry with a complete case, but you should connect them to a powerful amplifier. They are not suitable for walking along the street due to not very good sound insulation, but for stationary use, I recommend that the HD 380 PRO will perform perfectly in this role.
