Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

One of those closed back headphones everyone should at least try

kite7

Pros: Good all-around headphones with a smooth midrange (minus classical), fun to listen to. Great in trance/dubstep genre.

Cons: Prominent midbass can get in the way

My impressions is that these don’t sound significantly different than the cheaper SP version in terms of sound signature. The biggest difference is detail, more extended highs and smoother mid. If you didn’t like the SP version’s general sound you probably won’t like this either.   Comfort: I personally don't like on-ear headphones that much because of sweat and heat reasons and this is...

V-MODA Crossfade M-80

“ So here's my first mini-review. Kinda late, but I like these so much that I had to write a review for them xD   Intro One of the reasons I bought the V-MODA M80 is because I wanted a portable headphone that has good SQ and yet has the ability to turn heads. I also wanted my portables to have very good build quality and decent isolation because I will be using them during travel....” --Kagelou

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone

“ The HD25-1 has been my favorite (trans)portable headphone for quite a few months. I spend a few nights a week away from my home rig and the HD25 works wonders with my iBasso D10 and netbook. Hi-fi on the go has never been so rugged and simple. Best of all is their sonic versatility – though my backup portables, the AKG K181Dj, excel with certain genres and recordings, the Sennheisers perform...” --ljokerl

Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones

Koss KSC75 Portable Stereophone Headphones

“I bought these KSC75 clips because I lost my modded Koss UR55 and I read oodles of praise for them online. At first I was skeptical because they are very flimsy looking and they are often compared to the Koss PortaPro which sounds muddy in my opinion. So I tried them on and I was immediately impressed by the overall balance and airy sound. Everything sounds so natural and forward, and...” --kokakolia

Grado SR-80

“ Not a review, just my little opinion on these nice headphones.   My Grado SR80s are the older ones (Not the new 'i' version) I'm guessing my SR80s were made around in 2001-2003 etc.   All I can say these SR80s are very musical sounding headphones, and they can sure boogie too.   I think the SR80s are one of Grado's best headphones in my opinion. And can sound just...” --TDL-speakers

“ What can be said about these headphones that has not already been said in the 25+ years they have been in production?   Well, my girlfriend thinks they look silly...  And that for some odd reason makes me love them more.   Out of few phones I currently own, I always find myself reaching for these.    With the wonderful bass and full bodied sound comes the...” --BloodyPenguin

Sennheiser Amperior On-Ear Headphones

Sennheiser Amperior On-Ear Headphones

“ Oh, the Amperior - the street-wise sequel to the famed Sennheiser HD 25. They have a very similar sound signature, but the Amperior sports a fuller, more well defined bass and has toned down the sibilant, often unwieldy trebles of its predecessor. The build quality has increased. The style has been bumped up a notch. iDevice controls and mic are now present. And considering you can easily...” --uncleungie

JVC Victor Head-band Portable Headphones | HA-S500-B Black (Japanese Import)

“ I got these straight from Japan via Tenso right as Dsnuts got the hype train rolling last fall. Bought 3 pairs, of which I gave one to a colleague (yes,they are so inexpensive you can just give them away!) and one to my brother in law, and luckily, I kept a pair myself! I have an ongoing love-affair with these headphones! Higher end portables (Sennheiser HD 25-1 II, ATH ES700 etc.) has come...” --esmBOS

Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear Headphone

Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear Headphone

“At the price these guys are currently going at, I think there are few better values around. I did a lot of research before buying, and going by the impressions many folk have posted, one would think these sound massively different to the original Momentums. This is not the case at all - I owned both at the same time, and unlike most who have posted comparisons, I had the on-ears first. Compared...” --Napilopez
