  • 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 reveiw below or the excellent one over at InnerFidelity.   pads: Amperior has this supple pleathery material which is way nicer than the HD25 pads and more comfortable isolation: but somehow the HD25 pleather pads isolate better clamp: really the same build quality: Amperior clearly better in every way...
  • 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: 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.  previous experience with headphones has proved to me that wires usually are the weak point of headphones, and being able to replace all of the wiring, including the wiring that runs through the headband is a very sexy.
  • Pros: Sound quality, modular design!!!
  • Cons: not best for all genres, mids are lacking. Dongle attachment instead of inline controls

  • 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).   THE GOOD: - I think they look good in a geeky sense, they are not stylish at all. - The construction seems very solid as one would expect form Sennheiser at this price level.
  • Pros: High build quality, clean, punchy and efficient headphone.
  • Cons: Not the most confertable headphone, lack of soundstage.

  • Summary: The value for money I noted might seem out of proportion to the other properties, but I felt that the sound is so seamless and well balanced, and in spite of great highs so non-irritating on rock music and other potentially harsh tracks, that it's a very good value in spite of the much higher price than its predecessor the HD25-1-II.

  • 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 the stage.
  • 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: 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
  • Cons: Limited soundstage, price

  • 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. If you use these outdoors, you'll be shocked at how good they are for a portable, and they may make you reconsider whether IEMs are the best choice.
  • Pros: Engrossing sound and good isolation
  • Cons: You will get run over by a speeding truck
