Are you shure this was caused by the burn-in? Can't it be something else? If anything, mine just got better with burn-in (I think the bass got tighter and the treble settled down a bit). And I never found them to be bass heavy... rolleyes.gif

Anyone got their hands on the Amperior? Should be out some time now.

I keep looking online and can't find anyplace that has it in stock. All I can find are sites with it for pre-order, shipping in "1-3 weeks", or simply out of stock.

Just ordered a pair of refurb HD25s off of Dakmart through Amazon.

 

Looks like I'll be joining you all in 7-14 days. ;)

please let us know how your experience is, I miss my HD-25's but am a little hesitant to order from there.

I was set to order my HD25's from Dakmart's site back in the day, I read some feedback and decided on a different direction. When I contacted them to cancel my order their response was less than graceful, but to their credit the response was prompt and the order was cancelled.

Best of luck to randallm

Soon, Soon....ordered and paid for already.

They didn't include a shipping number natively, so I had to message them to get it. Nevertheless, they've assured me it will arrive on Monday.

 

A little unprofessional imo, but I'd recommend them to someone else just for the price--- at least for now.

It looks like I may have sorted out the bass bloat! I had initially been listening to them after a 13-hour flight, and it seems that the pressure change may have had the effect of reducing bass output. The cans have now settled down, and I have managed to "dial in" a more neutral sound by rolling op-amps and buffersin the P4. I'm now using AD797s, with discrete transistor buffers and a BUF634P WB on the first ground socket. It appears that the HD25s need plenty of current and a decent damping factor. Gain is currently set to 0dB!

Just got my Adidas HD25-1 II! I actually prefer the orignal more but I only paid $150 cad for these (new). The only thing that really bothers me are the white velour pads... I really wanted blue or even black pads.

 

I might sell them here then buy some regular ones online bigsmile_face.gif

 

Coming from my HD558's these things have a lot of bass. 

 

Other headphones I have in comparison:

HD558

SE215

EH250

Portapro's

KSC75

Ok, I'm absolutely loving my HD25, but now I wanna color up my collection, anyone know a pair of headphones with a fun sound similar to the HD25, but with an insane amount of bass and a better sound stage, like you were in a club per say. I was considering the pro700 mkii, but I heard from one person that it was a somewhat clinical sound just with a lot of bass. I'm also considering the LP2, but the treble is really a turn off to me. Any other suggestions?

Maybe Ultrasone HFI 580 or 780?

Or Pro 750s?

post #1845 of 2446

I want to buy a pair, where did you find them for 150? Are they new? I'm in Canada too..
