Possibly the greatest headphones ever made - in our humble opinion of course. These highly flexible - closed-back phones are perfectly suited to many varied applications - including DJing - live monitoring and studio mixing.
For DJs - the swivelling ear-cup - tidy cabling feature and adjustable headband are a pinnacle of design engineering. They may not be big silver shiny things that make you look like Robby the Robot - but they will stay in place on your head - and they always provide sharp - detailed sound - allowing for precision mixing - in even the noisiest environments.
Because they are made entirely from flexible components that click into place - it is virtually impossible to snap them. Even if one of the cups happens to come loose - perhaps during a particularly energetic camp flourish behind the decks - you can simply pop it back in place and carry on.
After much research - Sennheiser decided to offer this alternative verison of the HD 25's with a semi-coiled cable- it's around 1.5m when in normal use but can stretch up to 3m if need be.
All the individual parts for these are user replaceable - from the cable - to the driver capsule - to the foam strips on the headband - so provided you don't lose them - you can realistically have the same pair for 10 years or more and only need to replace the cable or foam pads once or twice.
This new edition of the HD 25 has a spare set of replacement pads in the box too making them even better value for money than ever.They also come with a 2 year warranty. Did we say possibly the greatest headphones ever? Definitely! 10/10
