Sennheiser HD 25 ALUMINUM On-Ear DJ Headphones Reviews

The Third

Ladies and gentlemen, we got a winner here; HD25 at it's best!

Posted

Pros: Excellent sound: Rich and slightly warm non-fatiguing sound, punchy bass, excellent extension & detail, speed, seperation and musical. ALUMINIUM!

Cons: Lower treble not as upfront, Dominant 100-300hz bass region not for all genres, not as spacious or airy as over-ear

I bought the HD25 Aluminium 3 months ago and so far this headphone has done nothing but impress me.  For the qualities it delivers I find it's still a highly overlooked headphone due to the predecessor still being sold. I can easily say that these are far better than the HD25-1-II's and are probably the best portable on ear headphones in the market today. This can has a dominant bass presence that definitely will attract bassheads but the mids and highs are perfectly balanced alongside that bass. This headphone is of audiophile quality back to back. It hits all the check-boxes of what a headphone should do good and is as good as a tool as it's entertaining.   These...

The HD25s with a boost on the low end

Posted

Pros: SIGNIFICANT bass boost (extension and volume) over the regular HD25, fast, excellent isolation (better than HD25), less harsh highs than HD25

Cons: Slightly less airy than the regular HD25, bloated mid bass and overemphasized kicks in some tracks

The HD25 ALUs have the exact same drivers as the HD25-1 II (differences in build are the earcups and the earpads), thus it retains most of the good points of the HD25 in terms of build, isolation and sound quality. As an avid HD25 fan, I will focus on the differences between these HD25 ALUs and the regular ones.   The Good  Sound signature is quite similar to the HD25. The attack, PRaT, decay and details are spot on. These headphones are fast. If you like the standard HD25, then you're gonna love the ALUs. The thing that really stood out to me when comparing it to the standard HD25 is the bass difference. You don't need to test them side by side to notice the difference....

The best HD25!

Posted

Pros: Extremely tight bass response, clear, sturdy, good seperation, excellent isolation

Cons: too long cable for portable use, staging somewhat limited due to the size

The HD25 series need no introduction, I think the Aluminiums are the best in the lineup, they sound very balanced with tight punchy bass that extends lower than the original HD25, it is a warm, clean sounding headphone. The Amperior in comparison packs even more punch, but always sounded a little hard to my ears when it comes to bright female vocals, this is much improved on the Alus while still retaining its sparkle. These are a real winner :)   Compared to some closed over-ear rivals they lack some soundstage height, width is decent though, it will still sound expansive on binaural recordings but it is not an over ear or open headphone obviously. Just something to keep in mind.
