From the Manufacturer
The closed-back HD 25-1 II purpose-designed, professional monitoring headphones offer high attenuation of background noise. Capable of handling very high sound pressure levels and of extremely robust construction, these headphones perform exceptionally well in high-noise environments, such as sound reinforcement, studio monitoring, and audio equipment testing. The capsule is rotatable for one-ear listening. The Sennheiser HD-25 II make ideal monitoring headphones for cameramen and DJs.
Lightweight and Comfortable
The HD 25-1 II is very lightweight and comfortable, even if used for long periods. The high maximum sound pressure level and 70 Ohms of nominal impedance allow for universal compatibility. Neodymium ferrous magnet systems and lightweight aluminium/copper voice combined with a tough, detachable steel cable deliver a long life of reliable performance.
The Sennheiser HD 25-1 II is compatible with MP3, iPod, DVD, and CD players as well as mobile phones supporting a 3.5mm jack plug. HD 25-1 II also supports (listen only) the latest generation of tablets, from the iPad to the most recent Android tablets and the Blackberry Playbook. It's also compatible with component home stereos, and recording or studio equipment that uses a 1/4" plug, thanks to the included locking 1/4" stereo plug adapter.

One reason why these are far superior than other headphones in the price range is its isolation. Although it is technically not a 'closed' system, it blocks out sound better than any closed headphones I've tried. Next time you're watching ESPN and look at what headphones the commentators are using, you'll quickly realize that these are EVERYWHERE. This is because of the superior isolation it provides, since commentators need to be able to block out the loud noise of the crowds & whatnot in the environment they are in.Read more ›
For me, the current crop of headphones aimed toward portable listening is, at best, merely acceptable. I could drag out the usual suspects to use as punching bags, but we already know who they are; just think style-over-substance and there's no need to name names. But there are a few seriously-mediocre 'phones out there offered by outfits that should definitely know better (AKG, I'm looking at you). Really, nothing I listened to in the "portable headphones" category did the trick, which is rather astounding given the money being asked for some of the upper-end models.
Then, while grousing about this situation to a sales guy at the headphone counter at a local shop recently, I got a suggestion I should have thought of before: ignore the "portable" category altogether, and audition something a pro would use. However, one good reason why I hadn't thought of this is that most "serious" headphones also typically sport some serious size and weight, and aren't always something that's easy for something like an iPod to drive at satisfying (not ear-splitting) sound levels. Yes, wearing big 'phones on the street is apparently cool again, but I prefer being a bit more discreet in my headwear, although I'm about done with in-ear phones and their assorted anomalies.
The sales guy then handed me a pair of these Sennheisers. I listened. I looked them over. I listened again. I was sold, simple as that.Read more ›
The V-Moda looked good, sounded ok, but the QC was terrible. The set I got had channel imbalance (right side noticeably louder than the left) and creaky construction at the metal hinges where the headband connects to the cups. I sold the V-Moda.
Next, I bought the highly recommended ATH M50. Sounded ok, bassy (definitely for bassheads) and isolation was good. BUT the long cord and size didn't make it as portable as I'd liked it to be, so it was relegated to home use for watching movies and playing games.
So my search for a sub $200 (unamped) portable headphone continued. I looked at Grado and other brands. Scoured forums and more forums for recommendations and whatnot. Annoyingly, people kept recommending this pair of headphones which led me to think that everybody on head-fi and other audio forums are all fashion-blind audiophiles/retards. However, logic dictates that if a bunch of monkeys are gong "ooh ooh ahh ahh" and pointing at something behind you, they all can't be wrong, so there might actually be something behind you that's worth looking at (a tiger mayhaps). So going against my better judgement, I ordered a pair. Best mistake I've ever done in my life, I must say.
The box was simple. Too simple. After the likes of the fancy schmancy case that came with the V-Moda, the Sennheiser box looked blasphemously cheap for the price that I paid for the headphones. And when I opened up the box, I was greeted with a flimsy looking plastic pair of headphones that has "Made in Ireland" printed on it.Read more ›
