Be warned! The V2's are very stiff at first. I love them so much now though, but the stiffness had me reconsidering my purchase for a while. He says the V2 batch was designed to last longer and that's why they are so stiff at first.

Just saw this, that's an amazing price. I heard getting them "M" modded sounds even better, without breaking the bank.

Uhm, they're totally different headphones. HD280 = closed, HD555 = open. If you knew that already and are that open to other suggestions, just post what you're looking for and we should be able to give you better suggestions. From what I've heard, there are better equivalents to the HD280 for the price.

ok so yeah i did know about the open v closed but, and this probably sounds noobish, i honestly hadnt really thought about it to much as it doesnt matter either way, but now ive decided deffinatly going for closed ones. So i guess my next question would be suggest me a pair for around the same price as the HD280's. as im coming from just a pair of HD202's anything would be an improvement

I'm not sure there are many better closed cans then the 280's around that price point.

The 280's really shine in a very high noise environment, since they have a noise attenuation of 32db. That's like wearing earplugs.

haha yeah, Crazy's right. next time you're in a store and see earplugs, alot of them are rated ~30db lol.
you can even sleep through alarm clocks if you fall asleep with them on... don't ask <.<

First off, I'm a bit biased towards open styles; I like them. I do have a few closed sets though and my ATH-A700's are one of my preferred cans for listening at home.

I prefer the HD555's over the HD280's myself. The 280's give a nice sound, but it's all a bit recessed. More bass than the 555's, but it can get muddy if you use any EQ or bass boosting. Mid-range, they're similar with the 280's again feeling a bit recessed. Higher freq's, the 555's are brighter and the 280's are recessed.
This could be because the rated SPL is lower on the 280's than the 555's, but I can't say for certain. I will say that if I listen to dance music I'd go straight to the 280's and use a flat EQ. The bass for 555's isn't beefy enough to get the right feeling across.

also at that price level, look into the HD448's. I read they compare well against the HD280's although with only ~10db isolation compared to the 32db on the 280s. I've not listened to them so I can't comment.


edit---------------
Also.
Anyone know where to get HD580/HD600/HD650 cable plugs? and a suitable bulk cable for recabling?

I'm considering doing a trial to see whether recabling is worth the effort, and decided the upgraded HD650 cable would be only a minor step to make any substantial observations. at least with my HD580s.

Hey guys, im thinking about getting a pair of ad700's.. the thing is, i don't blast my music, i listen to it at a medium volume.. would it be worth getting something cheaper with this in mind? i'll be using them for games/music @ medium volume, and comfort is pretty key. open or closed, it doesnt matter to me, less than 100 for sure.
