Excerpt: They are extremely comfortable, featuring a minimalistic headband and a unique capsule design, making them an attractive and lower-cost alternative to the HD 25-II. These are also suitable for nightly DJ use.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Great Price, Lightweight
Excerpt: Picked these up for DJing in loud bar. Super happy with the sound isolation, I was able to hear my cue clearly, while being able to feel the outside of the headphones rattling from the monitors. Bass response is massive, songs that sounded bass heavy in the cans, needed a little low-end push on the mixer. These headphones are super lightweight, which makes wearing them easy. I've owned other DJ style headphones and IMHO you can't beat these in this price range.
Summary: These are the best headphones for portable use that I have found. The detail is not as good as other headphones in it’s price range but the overall package of size, sound quality and durability make them the ultimate portable headphones. They have great bass impact, a nice punchy sound and isolate better than most headphones They do exhibit some sibilance at times. They make excellent DJing headphones.
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: Extension - Loads of bass extension... but, Impact - Slightly lacks impact and, Quality - Very loose. Does improve with an amp though. Mids - Good Highs - Good Soundstage - Rather good considering they are supraaural and closed Detail - Not bad Portability, Isolation and Durability is where these headphones shine. Small enough to fit insude a handbag or laptop bag makes this also idea for travel and people on the go.
