  • 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.
  • Cons: Mildy sibilant. Minimal soundstage. Exposed wiring.

  • Summary: Sennheiser Amperior Review Please Click here for Video Review: 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)

  • Summary: Intro 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: 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.

  • Pros: Sound quality, modular design!!!
  • Cons: not best for all genres, mids are lacking. Dongle attachment instead of inline controls

  • Summary: These are not the final word in isolation, but coupled with their ability to play loud and to entertain, they might result in you forgetting that roads are dangerous and normally noisy. The sound quality itself is great, like its older brother, but the bass can be a little like it's only one note.
  • Pros: Engrossing sound and good isolation
  • Cons: You will get run over by a speeding truck
