I too can attest to these. They're fucking boss.

They're also 51% off right now. I'm not sure I can resist for $73...

EDIT: I gave in...

Worth it. I paid $100 for mine, and I wouldn't say I regret it.

The big thing that had been holding me back on getting a nice pair was the size. All the ones that had been covered in this thread seemed to be for big heads (based on what I read in the reviews). When I saw people saying these were too small, I got excited. Tall face is tall.

Oh alright I see, thanks guys. Yeah, I guess when I think about it I really don't need that kind of hardcore noise cancelling headphones that bad, but I'll definitely have to go check out those 280s if they're still on sale

The only thing that I don't like about the 280's is the coiled cable but that's just me being nit picky. Coiled cables should of stayed in the 70's :/

That is where you and I differ, dear comrade. I quite like the coiled cord. (Although that might be because it reminds me of the big green cans I used to listen to my mom's records with when I was a kid, which were admittedly from the early 70s.)

I thought about getting one for my K240S, but the pre-made ones are mad long, and I don't care quite enough to make my own.

You have nothing to fear; I've got a small noggin too. They fit me snug, and they clamp like motherfuckers.

I don't remember if the 280s had this problem but my tma-1s certainly did, where the coils would catch and pull my arm hairs. Pretty sure the coils on the 280 were pretty loose and didn't do that tho.

Good thing I can't grow arm hair, just to be on the safe side.

Nah, the coils on the 280s are big and loose, I've never had them catch on anything. If that happened with the tma-1 I can see why you hate em though.

I just have this pet peeve with long ass cables. I like the coiled ones because they're short and out of the way, but can also stretch if you're moving around and stuff. So if it hooks on something it doesn't rip the cans off your head.

Burn-in question for you guys: what do you usually use for your sample? Plan on burning-in the 208's when they get in, first time I've done so. Of what I read online it seems like it really doesn't matter?

I just use the headphones normally then run pink noise while I sleep or go out. Just set the volume to a moderate listening levels while burning in.

Seems like RZA wants in on the headphone game he is coming out with his own pair called Chambers one for "DJ" and one for "street"

Normally I run pink noise for about a week while I'm at work/out/sleeping. Then the next week, I loop an album with a good mix of crazy deep bass and super bright highs, (usually Yuu's solo album), so it's constantly hitting all those nook-and-cranny frequencies.

Just use the shit out of 'em for a week or two. Since I got this iMac with its fuckawful speakers, I keep headphones plugged in and turned up, and use those instead of the computer's internals, and that works too.
