Summary: I use my Sennheiser HD-25s for commuting. They are bigger than buds and canalphones, but smaller than the usual cans one would use at home or in the office. They are durable for sure, and have a split headband allowing one to adjust to one's head -- and they stay on your head quite well. You can rock with these phones. The HD-25s are a little uncomfy with a high clamping supra-aural factor, but with velour pads and some time, the discomfort is not a great.
Summary: Thanks to J&R Music World for offering these at a great price [$] The headphones normally cost over $300!! grerat savings. They are already the professional standard in europe and US audiophiles should seriously check out this brand & model. It blows away the competition (Sony, etc) in every category. You will never look back.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I'm pretty far from what I'd consider to be an audiophile. I know that based on the extremes that people can go with this stuff that I'm never going to bring myself to justifying that kind of obsessive behavior, but I do believe in quality and performance and when you find something that works that the price is usually well worth it. These headphones are the definition of money well spent. I had bought blister pack junk in the $50-100 range for years with about every...
Pros: sensitive, durable, modular replacement parts
Summary: Far and away the best money I have ever spent. Audiophile and Musician. Great bass response and sound isolation. I use these for everything. they work great in my comuter system , ipod , even plugged into my guitar amp so I dont wake the entire house while practicing. Comfortable, lightweight. When they arrive give them a couple hours then put on your old headphones. You'll be shocked what you been missin.
Summary: I've purchased these yesterday and they are amazing!
This is my best purchase ever on headphones!
Great built quality, sound with some really good bass and they're quiet comfortable.
The only cons i have on these headphones is that they get quiet warm after a while and there isn't a hard case to transport them.
Pros: Good audio quality, Comfortable
Cons: They get quiet warm on your ears after a while
Summary: I bought the Sennheiser HD 25-1 (adidas) after my ATH-M50 had a loose connection and i had to return them.
Though I loved the M50's, they made me realize that a headphone is not all about sound quality.
Their isolation just didn't do it for me, and the pleather pads got my ears sweaty all the time.
The HD 25-1 finally does everything I need it to do.
The isolation is top notch, and the velour pads are more comfy then pleather while not getting sweaty.
Pros: sound quality, bass, impact on drums and bass, detailed and refined, yet fun sounding. User customizable/ detachable, looks awesome
Cons: 100% plastic, light microphonics(only if you pay attention), revealing
Summary: I have had these for a month now and i do feel these deserve a review
To me i find these look beautiful. The durability is equally as great. All parts are replaceable if need be. When i first picked them up though i was thinking to myself (did i really pay $200 for these things?). They may look cheap but when you apply force you realize they are really well built. One thing i noticed was that they are made in ireland.
Pros: treble, bass, speed, portable, easy to drive, design, value
Cons: Adidas marketing makes me look like a tool, comfort, price (depends), slightly scooped mids.
Summary: Thank you Jude for your review , as soon as I watched your comparison between the Sennheiser Adidas HD 25 and Beyerdynamic 1350, I decided to get them both. and really they complement each other.
what are you doing wasting time reading the review,go run, now, and get it.
Summary: PROS: This is an amazing headphone with a clear sonority.
CONS: It's a little bit uncomfortable for a long usage.
High: Very good
Medium: Very good
Low: Very good
I do recommend if you are looking for a headphone on ear headphone.
You will pay a little more for the Addidas Style, but this is awesome.
Summary: Sound quality:
I can't understand all the fuss about these headphones. These are not "high fidelity", and are a bit frustrating when you are used to better full size headphone (or even IEM). I found them a bit muffled.
Bass: The bass thump/impact is here , but lacks variation, it sounds like a single note. In comparison my cheaper but discontinued senn IE7 offers much richer bass.
