Summary: Oh, the Amperior - the street-wise sequel to the famed Sennheiser HD 25. They have a very similar sound signature, but the Amperior sports a fuller, more well defined bass and has toned down the sibilant, often unwieldy trebles of its predecessor. The build quality has increased.
Pros: Accurate and detailed with clean, punchy bass. Funky styling.
Summary: I've owned the Sennheiser Amperior for about a month and a half. I got these headphones for 175 dollars used, and I don't feel they're worth the money for me.Before I begin, I'd like to start off by saying some positive things so I don't come off as just bashing these things.
Pros: Kind of 'fun' sounding, Pretty, Seem pretty durable
Cons: Very uncomfortable, Congested and not good for enjoying music

The Sennheiser Amperior headphone is a headphone that comes fully loaded with a bunch of features and are very practical if you just need one headphone that will last you a long time, block out noise, while sounding lively and exciting.
Pros: small form factor, exciting fast sound, great isolation, superb build quality, lightweight, right earcup swivels, all parts are replaceable
Cons: clamping force, treble might be a bit much for some, plasticky (but probably the most rugged plastic out there)
Long before I heard of Head-fi.org, one of the first headphones I ever bought was the Sennheiser HD 25-1. In 2004 I was on tour as the drummer for the internationally renowned singer Fish (ex-Marillion) and wanted an excellent headphone to enhance my music-listening experience both on and off...
Pros: Audiophile-grade portable headphone with excellent clarity and bass impact; luxurious-yet-rugged and stylish construction
Cons: Clamping pressure may be too much for some listeners; a more open, laid-back sounding headphone may be preferred
Summary: Just a point form review... really just notes for myself comparing vs the HD25-1-ii. If you want something with more sonic impressions, read any other Amperior or HD25 review below or the excellent one over at InnerFidelity.
Pros: rugged and utilitarian, good sound at this price, isolation one of the best, practically industry standard and most people know what it sounds like
Cons: good isolation comes at the cost of high clamp
Summary: I got these second hand to use when traveling. I have owned a bunch of other headphones like the Grado RS225 D2000, DT880 and still own a HD650 (just so you know my point of reference).
- I think they look good in a geeky sense, they are not stylish at all.
Pros: High build quality, clean, punchy and efficient headphone.
Cons: Not the most confertable headphone, lack of soundstage.
Summary: Bought this as a factory second for £100 recent for a bit of portable fun. I have been looking at the Amperior for quite a while but I ended up with the DT-770 32ohm, which I did not regret at all. The initial pricing of the Amperior was the major thing that stopped me from buying it.
Pros: Sounds quality if great. Typical Sennheiser sound signature, warm and fluidic. Can be driven with almost everything. Made in Ireland, not China
Cons: Flimsy headband design straight from HD-25. Cables supplied is un-proportionally thin. Initial introductory price a bit expensive for what it is.
Summary: this is my first review, though these aren't my first good headphones.
Build quality: they are made of mostly plastic, besides the aluminium cups and hinges, but they are still built very well. i like that i am able to replace every part.
Pros: Sound quality, modular design!!!
Cons: not best for all genres, mids are lacking. Dongle attachment instead of inline controls
Summary: I wasn't really in the market for another set of headphones, but i happened to be in the Apple Store buying a cable and was just having a general look around when I saw the Amperiors. I decided to have a listen and was seriously impressed.
