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: A great set of portable closed cans for the go. With a lower impedance than their predecessors these headphones can be run of nearly any source. Although the sound stage is limited the overall sound quality is quite pleasing.
Pros: Durable design, thumping bass, adjustable for cable and headband
Conclusion: The Sennheiser Amperior is far from the cheapest set over-ear cans on the market, but what you get for your money is superb audio quality and a very stylish set of headphones. Definitely worth considering if you want to get excellent audio performance from your iPad or iPhone.
Pros: Great audio performance; Stylish looks; robust design
Cons: Expensive; slight discomfort after an hour’s use
