Space 16's review"The best,"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
I have had mine for over 10 years and they have never failed or broken. I recommend these when I get asked what headphones should I get by DJ's and Producers. And the fact that if they do break you can replace the individual parts instead of having to spend a few hunded on a whole new pair....

JimboSpins's review"Great in the studio"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
The Sennheiser HD 25-1 II headphones have a closed back and detachable cord. When I first had the chance to listen to them I didn’t think that they would be any good to DJ with because I didn’t feel like the low end hit hard enough for me. So I kept them in my studio and didn’t take the chance on using them in the club. When using them in the studio I got some pretty good mixes from them. They did not color my sound and had very warm low end tones without over doing it. The highs and mids are pretty clean n these without being too sharp or bright.
These headphones do not have a great design to them. They look very simple and plain, they do not look like they should cost as much as they do. The only writing or bit of color on them is on the top of the part that goes over the head. They are all black and dull looking, but they are very comfortable. I have worn these for long sessions and they never got uncomfortable. It is even easy to take off the ear pads and change them out if you want to.
The HD 25-1 II are very durable and light, they frequency response is 16 Hz to 22 kHz and they have aluminum voice coils. These actually remind me of the HD-10 headphones that came out decades ago. The sounds of these headphones are really worth the price though. I was using them for about a year and half and never had any issues with them. For the price I don’t think you can get a better sound then what they provide. These where my main headphones for a while (in the studio). I never did try them to DJ with though because I didn’t think they low end was hitting enough for me but for studio use they are perfect and I recommend them!

Brandski's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The rolls headphones, versatile DJ / Studio"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
Before AKG but they break all the time.

I use it in preview to mix and studio recordings.
Comfortable (a little compress after 1h) insulates it from outside noise for use mileux noisy. The volume is powerful.

Very solid, the mine is as new (plastic / foam) after 2 years of intensive use every day.
Fully removable, can be repaired easily and tampered with or the parts are findable online.

Audio quality very high levels. Neutral spectrum, great for studio applications, it is made for.

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
I use it for two or three months now. I tried a lot of models that I can not remember much more exact references, Beyer dynamic and Seinnheiser.

I think this headset is ideal for use as I did: sound outside (shooting reportage atmosphere) and for sound analysis work requiring very close listening (because, I repeat, we hear everything clearly and not artistically!)

If he were to miss a headphone for this kind of work, there are chances that I redo the same choice. Unless you find another model with the same characteristics and whose sound would suit me more, because for the pleasure of listening to music, I orienterais to another product better suited to listening comfort and with a sound more attractive rendering.

My ratings for this product naturally take into account its use in the aforementioned professional setting!

Miking outdoor studio and now (because I have it in hand faster than another)

I appreciate his isolation outside noise (rather convenient for recording out). It is true that not shake your head hurt, but the insulation wins, and I use it for that! Alternatively, for a longer listening, it would be a bit tiring.

The headphone is solid, and that's fine because I am led me to move often. Its connection is replaceable (the wire is held by means of a clamping screw to two, and easily disconnect headphones).

The cable is short. So no knots to do, because the distance between the mixer is reduced worn around the neck and ears! it is much appreciated!

For listening, I could compare it with several other models in store. There were all sorts of references Sennheiser and Sony, from low to high end.
My choice turned to this model for the technical advantages mentioned above, and also because I liked its low (down to 36Hz) and midbass are clear and distinct (as opposed to many headphones he is impossible to discern clearly anything in this part of the spectrum) and I had a great perception of the central image. In addition, it does not filter the noise, so I can trust him if I have a technical shit I hear and be able to solve immediately!

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It is E-QUI-LI-BRE!"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
Used intensively since March 2014 comfortable and efficient. Listen, lightweight headset and well isolated from the outside world for many perceive everything we hear between the two headphones.
This is my third headphone (including a Sennheiser 1978 open I can not remember the reference but I farted like an idiot ... rather than throwing it on the floor to avoid a beating fuck my ex I should have done the opposite, I would win out: lolunpeumaispastantqueça :).
Apart from its grip after a while, and the price ridiculous side which I touched nine (a limited edition blue Addidas that nobody wanted), it is a quality / price ratio outside the norm, and m 'encourage surely make the same choice if necessary.

Originally purchased to replace my Panasonic definitely too oriented "headphones for MP3" and supercharged bass. The HD 25 was originally not intended to be recording, mixing only in control, but given its qualities, and although it is shallower than my Panasonic, I also used my cabin making voice because it is better to sing with balanced in his ears rather than his big bass made.
His failure has already been quoted: he shook heartily. After two hours, break essential, which is not bad in terms of listening. Add to that the original headphones are covered with plastic cushions, and is sweating warranty. I immediately bought on the net foam blue velvet, and this is the top.
8/10 thanks to the foam.

Apparently solid construction. Many spare parts available on the net full of dealers. I appreciate his dual gold plated terminals screw that allows you to switch jack to mini-jack.
9/10, because of construction, and the hoop clamp is not very malleable.

I find it very balanced. An index to judge, no ear fatigue after a few hours of listening with EQ set flat. It therefore gives him a faithful character in terms of restitution of audio content, corrections EQ being met.
The noise level is very good, and it cut perfectly from the outside world, while paradoxically, it is not silent on the environment. Namely, repisse issue in micro high sensitivity, for example, when it is recorded in quiet atmosphere.
9/10 for the almost inevitable repisse (but measurable)

ernstleitz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
I use this headset regularly for 6 months, and what I appreciate most is the ease of use and sound quality.

I use this headset for making sounds and especially mastering replacing a Prodipe headphones (inferior), which made too fragile soul.
HD 25-1 holds well on the head; it is lightweight and does not fatigue. The atria are quite soft, which allows for long trouble free operation.

At first glance, this German headphone brand, but made in China seems quite fragile, but it has a detachable cable that when maneuvering a bit violent and accidental, is simply detached instead of breaking.

The audio quality is very good (much better than the old Prodipe) and the ear is well isolated from external ambient noise.

lorfe's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The Efficiency signed sennheiser"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
How long have you use it? 3 days
Have you tried many other models before buying it? Of cheap prodipes a akg 39 euro and 205 hd
How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice? There has to dark!

What do you use this headset (sound recording, mixing, mastering, live, studio ...)? To mix
What music do you listen to? Techno
Fits there easily to your head and your ears? perfectly!

The headphone you seem weak or strong? at first glance you might think it is fragile, think again!
He has a detachable connection? yes

The audio quality of the headphones you she looks good (serious overall balance, middle, treble, stereo)? The overall balance is as its name implies no penchant for balanced midrange and treble yet heard
You sound level seems too low or too high? High enough to kill you .. this is a joke but made blunder as well!
What will become of sound insulation (do you hear outside noise from your headphones, and is what people hear the music you listen to)? The insulation is very good even with a pregnant side!

Gabiche's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
I use it for two years, this is an expensive purchase, but forget Monsteur Bite your head for acorns, here we are talking about headphones solid, reliable and durable.
I do not regret my purchase.

If I had to make a choice, I would go on the aluminum model, but as the sound, the look, the technical properties of the headphone make it a bestseller essential to any sound technician who respects himself.

This headset is very special: it is the (only?) headphone you can buy loose piece.
Amazing? No, this model is a reference for years, and it must have been to understand. ¨

I use it for video editing, as well as mixer.
This is a headphone that fits comfortably in your head, but that is not to be used for too long because it tends to warm your ears.

Replacing the standard foam of velvet saves comfort, if you change the pads, take them directly velvet!

Solid point.
You can take the headphone, stroll in the rain, clowning onstage sweaty, this headphone is like your dog: it is your companion that you will always be faithful.
The cable normally sensitive element, is here reinforced by an internal steel cable: very difficult to break.

The sound ... the problem with this headset is that once you taste it still finds a way.
In addition to being well insulated, the sound is really good, with great precision, and teudieu potato!
As video DJ use, these headphones really satisfied me.

jubjub's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good headphones"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
Before I had a low-end Sony, which had bcp too low, which shook their heads no more, and repissait severe.
I love the sound quality, the cable that runs from the headset to the top of the right speaker if I'm not mistaken, not to interfere, and the fact that it is well insulated.
Tale by the cable is a short hair.

I use it for the sound and begin my mixes.
It is nice, is well head without hurting, and greatly cuts external noise.
It may hurt a little after 2:00, a 5 minute break and go again! :)

It's pretty solid. It has a tip Jack 6.35 golden that screws onto the tip of the cable 3.5.
Yes yes, he screwed! why? I do not know, but I did not lose interest in this tip.
Bought 190th, there two months, so far as it is new, it always serves both my ears.

Good audio quality, not tiring, flat. It does not repisse as it is very correct. So good sound insulation.

aureliensmart's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Sennheiser HD 25-1 II"

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II
Possessor of this headphone for over two years, I particularly appreciate:

Its very "flat"
quality pad making listening, DJ app for me, very good (mean nothing or almost outside)

Attention well informed and be careful to buy the model with the twisted cable and therefore extensible (essential to my sense DJ application where it is fed regularly move + or -. 2/4 meters behind governed Thus This avoids the crash of a flat "rigid" cable if distance too great and therefore the risk of tearing the 6.35 jack of the mixer)

I tested the AKG (good but more suitable for use mastering / hi-fi in my opinion), Technics (not good) and now the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II.

For the moment, I do not have a negative opinion on this headphone.

The price also seems properly positioned for this product range PRO remember, especially when blooming now sees some headphones "trends" and "fashion", not PRO products, yet for some to + 150 € (.. .)

I would do this choice without hesitation.

Aurelien SM'ART

DJ application (mix, mastering monitoring)
electronic music mainly, but not only (jazz, classical, rock)
the "flat"
comfortable arches, a headset is adjustable (MONITOR CUE / PFL to return - headphones) not interfere with the use, even after several hours.

good strength throughout.
good workmanship.
connectors supplied with 3.5mm jack adapter 6.35.
product that ages well.

the "flat", RAS for me.
correct and well-balanced sound level.
no outside noise, this is a GOOD headphone closed.
