I can hear the music at a low volume and focus on my task.

Fortunately it does stretch out slightly with regular use, and now I can wear it comfortably even with glasses.

The Sennheisser HD-25's are the best headphones on the market.

First of all I should say that I love these. They're lightweight, innocuous, and do a good job with muffling sounds outside. I say muffle, as coming from IEMs they do not isolate yourself completely from people talking to you (though they do have to speak much louder than they normally would), but they do isolate yourself from sounds of a city or an airplane. I've taken these on a flight and they are quite lovely. Instead of that awful humming from active NC (think Bose QCs), they merely attenuate all sound around me. I can still hear the flight attendents, yet for some reason can't hear the baby three seats behind me.

As for sound quality, these are quite lovely. While certainly not the best headphones I've ever heard (I reserve that distinction for the HD650s and Grado HF-1s), they have a nice, deep and accurate bass that helps distract from the din of the outside world. Vocals are presented quite well, and as everyone else has said here... treble could use some work. I've only noticed the annoyance in classical pieces, more specifically with strings.

These headphones are built well. Despite being mostly plastic, they do look like they could survive a beating. I've already dropped them a couple of times, and they haven't had a scratch. Plus even if you do manage to break them outside of warranty or are at fault for breaking them Sennheiser has a parts shop to replace most any part. While I have not yet had to deal with them for this headphone, I have had to get replacement pads for another of their headphones and they were quite courteous in sending them and even emailed me instructions on how to properly replace them. I suspect that despite this headphone's high price, it'll in the end prove its own value by outliving me.

I switched from Senn PX-200 to HD-25s. Can't compare these two as one is $40 and the other is $180. Sound quality is great. I was suggested these by a member in head-fi.org. It is light in weight, although double the weight of PX-200. Even though they are comparatively bigger, I use them for jogging. People do notice them on me when I am running. I really don't care as I am engrossed in listening to some high quality music.

These are the only headphones I know that offer decent sound quality and audio isolation. I use them with an MP3 player (Cowon iAudio T2) both for travel and for pleasure.

For some reason, my left ear is a funny shape. I mean, it looks just fine (as far as I can see in a mirror!), but "simple" earphones (like you get for free with electronics these days) fall out and expensive "in ear" phones don't fit. My right ear is fine, so it's not simple user error, I hope.

So I'm left with closed-back headphones. After reading around, these had the best reputation (for sound quality) in my price range. And they're pretty good. Not, in my opinion, a match for a good pair of open headphones (they sound nowhere near as involving as the much cheaper Grado SR60s, and much less "natural" than the open Sennhesiers at the same price), but good enough to make them a pleasure.

They have a slightly metallic tone and an emphasis in the upper-mids, but then become quite "shut in" at higher frequencies. So cymbals don't shimmer as much as you'd expect, but the result feels very "detailed". It's hard to describe, but different instruments are easily distinguished - sometimes I wear them in a quiet room just to focus in on one player in an ensemble, for example. The bass is there, but not particularly powerful, and is soon overwhelmed by ambient noise - the isolation is better at the higher frequencies.

Isolation is not as good as an in-ear phone (for my right ear!), but it's "good enough" for general use (I work shifts that involve an overnight bus (coach) ride every week and can listen to music while travelling - I suspect they would be good on planes, but haven't tried yet).

I've tried everything. The Sennheisser HD-25's are the best headphones on the market. They sound great on every level (literally). /story

The only headphones that come close to the solidity of these 25s, are the Sony V6 professionals. But these sound way way better and are even more solid. They feel unbreakable, sit tight and have very decent isolation. Yeah they cost a little, but they are totally worth it. The quality is just literally top-notch.
