Sennheiser HD 25
Features aren't exactly aplenty on earphones. Some say they could do with a longer or coiled cord, but they must keep their record boxes a bit further away from their decks than I do! Ok, so the cord is a bit on the short side, but at least it's less of a chance to trip up on it! Everything is replaceable on them, so thats a bonus. They're also one of the few 70ohm cans in popular use, so for me anyway, they match perfectly to the headphone jack on my mixer. Couldn't really ask for anything else from a set of closed cup cans.

£120GBP

REALLY loud and still bang out bass without problems. These things are perfect for DJing. Sound quality is well rounded, although I find them ever so slightly lacking the clarity of audiophile quality cans. What they can do with levels though more than makes up for that. I really don't think I'd consider anything else to play out with, the only others on the market that can match this quality of sound at those levels are a bit big and cumbersome, and not terribly comfortable after a while wearing them. You could say these things do exactly what they say on the tin!

Just plug and play - not much more to say really! Haven't had to replace anything on them as yet, but given their simple design, I doubt it'd too much of a ball-ache to sort. The short cable might come under critism from people used to longer one's, but like I said, the flip side could also be said of somebody used to shorter cables having to then start using cans with a skipping rope's worth of wire haning off.

Simple classy design, and they really do feel robust. No signs of wear on them yet (half a year) and the replacability of parts means those things that do wear out wont wear out the entire set. Got to be the way all headphones should be made

Well, they're made in Ireland (just like me!) so thats 10 out of 10 right there! I'm so glad Sennheiser have made what I think is the perfect headphone. Light, durable, replaceable parts to keep the cost down in the long run, comfortable to wear for long periods, top notch sound quality and deafining, crisp levels. What more could a DJ ask for?

It is expensive but it's worth it because it hold the road, in any case it is worth its price.
I would do this choice without hesitation, except that I would rather the one with the twisted wire

I use it for djing only (eletro-garage), I'm not trudging to listen to music on my ipod for fear of damaging it.
Coating very pleasant, I keep it on the head for several hours and feel no gene.

At first sight, yes, it seems fragile, a little cheap, but this is not the case at all. It is now 10 years that I have and it is still like new, the atria are still in perfect condition, no visible degradation, I am impressed by the quality of the product, and yet I shall not particularly care, it Sometimes I make him fall etc..

Level sound quality for djing, nothing to say, and he spits venere, volume background there's way to explode timpans is a limited mini speaker, good certe, thoroughly saturated and ca ca n ' no interest, but I remember the first time I used it, I wanted to test the sound output and ca impressed me.
Insulation level, ditto, nothing to say, it is even boring at times because I duo mix and when I talk to my friend who has the ear does not hear a word I say.

NO DISTORTION IN THE PIANO FOR EXAMPLE .. CUSTOM I HAVE NOT FOUND ENORMOUS DIFFERENCE IN TONE FROM A VIA MONITORS Thurs

headphone LOOK AT FIRST SIGHT BUT VERY FRAGILE is appearance, CA IS VERY WELL. I USED SINCE THE END OF A GOOD TIME AND I MUST SAY IT IS THE ROAD, NO DEGRADATION FOUND.

Sennheiser HD 25
How long have you been using?

Any new owner of a HD25-1-II

Did you try many other models before buying it?
Some Pioneer and Sony MDR V500 recent years and the 25 in HD ready for a friend, what motivated my choice

What is so special that you like most and least?
as: insulation, precision, robustness, low quality Freqs, and the possibility to change piece by piece if necessary, its weight.
minimum: the high pressure of the bow which can be tiring on long listening period, but also that it guarantees good insulation with the environment ......

How do you rate the quality / price?
excellent, promo now at 146 euros it is probably the best choice.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without hesitation, my choice is turned over to the robustness and quality of listening in noisy environments for the live and I am not disappointed. We hear all the details, Low hit very hard from the first listen it was the slap! on the other hand I keep my old Sony home or home studio as much neutral. But once in the hands one understands why this headphone is a reference for years!

Sennheiser HD 25
70 ohms! is not life grand? where at least there is sound! not very linear, less than AKG K240 bcp but also more sensitive and easier to use live, especially for line check where it means any "buizz" with 95 db of noise ... . advise for live, maybe less for the studio.

Eynkel's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The best headphones in the world"

Sennheiser HD 25
Say what you want, but this is simply the best headphones in the world.

Why?

Just because it meets all the requirements of the headphones.

The low impedance gives a dynamic and incredible responsiveness.
His arch that opens allows the atria to flatten the skull and cuts noise pollution in one way or another.
More for drummers (or other) it increases the stand during sudden movements, he never falls!

The sound does not go outside (practice external connectors) and the headphone does not repisse microphones in studios even the most sensitive large-diaphragm engaged proximity (U67, G7, C414 ...)

While those who criticize the frequency response and exclude a headphone to the mix go get dressed because listening is ALWAYS colored, just get into the habit.
The fact that in the pros does not mix that headphone???
It seems to me that it simply does not exist.

I use it for 15 years, and for a long time!

sepym's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Best headphones for the movie mix"

Sennheiser HD 25
I use this headset for about 4 years before in loc now I possess. I also could try Sony, Audio Technica and Beyer but the HD25 is I think, from my point of view, the best headphones for the sound in exterior.
It has very good insulation to ambient noise and takes up minimal space.

This is THE headphone I ever saw on film by far and I understand why.

In sound, no complaints, it does fairly neutral despite a slight bump in the bass but it is just a detail.

I would do that choice without a doubt, I find the price very convenient, because it's hardware that lasts when it takes care and does not lose its quality year after year.

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

Sennheiser HD 25
It's not a headphone in production, but it's a good headphone to dj mix.

How do I know what you do with a headset that compresses low?
A blow to the headphone it sounds good and evil in pregnant once it is inverted.

If you have studio monitors very neutral but why not if it is impossible to do a good job with the studio.

It is for the dj and tv ingestion.
