I wouldn't be too swayed by that user. I, along with other ex-HD25 users are pretty impressed. Used the HD25 for about 8 years consistently. The HD8 is a different flavor, not an over-ear version of the HD25. If you found the HD25 sibilant, lacking isolation and uncomfortable then the HD8 is a very good option. Nothing wrong with keeping the HD25 though, it is a staple in DJ culture and will never lose its appeal.
