The clamp hard.  Pressure becomes less with time and use.

May it be that since some call it unberable that it differs on the size of the persons aswell? Been curious for some years and no where to try them. Its this or a funny looking small tube amp for fun so. Might tip over to amp instead.

hi there guys! new member here

 

been lurking around for ages reading posts and finally decided to join in~

 

lately my hd25 has been having the usual cutting off problems (the cables need to be wiggled in and poked before the sound would continue)

 

lately this has been disturbing me so much - im on my second cable (genuine sennheiser hd25 cable) - the first one had this issue of cutting off and i thought it was the cable, so i replaced it which seemed to fix the problem for awhile and now its back

 

apparently its a major design flaw of what otherwise a bullet proof, indestructible headphone?

 

now i am looking at either getting the zomo spiral deluxe cords (which many said to be superior to the original sennies part due to thicker cable and plugs or whatever) or the new OYAIDE hd25 cable from japan, anyone got experience with both of these?

 

also does anyone know if the amperiors are prone to the sound cutting problem as well? i have had the HD25 for 5 solid years and i have a love/hate relationship with it, i love the sound and the light weight factor, but i absolutely hate the fact that the sound continues to cut off on one side (and needing some wiggle to refix it)

Oh wow, I'm having that problem with my stock cable too!  I bought an aftermarket cable that works great, but I really like the flexibility/speediness/detail of the stock cable.  Let me know if you figure out a solution.

Reposition the springs that make the connection between the voice coil wires and cable pins.

 

 

After carefully removing the baffle with a very small flat-head screwdriver or Xacto knife, move the voice coil leads to the sides a bit and pull that white piece out to gain access to the springs or just press down on the springs' long end sticking out beyond that plastic in the photo to reseat them.

that's awesome advice, I'm just too scared that I'm going to mess something up!

post #2062 of 2428

I recently got these and so far I am loving them!

 

 

The only thing I didn't like was the stock cable which I really didn't like the feel of, so I got a Zomo coiled copper cable instead. I'm also using the pleather earpads at the moment due to the better bass, but I'll probably switch to the velour ones every now and then due to their comfort.

 

All in all though, I'm very pleased with the sound, comfort and quality and they are definately my new phones for portable use.

I have the cardas cable, and it sounds "full" and gives a wider soundstage, but I prefer the stock cable because it gives more detail and brightness.

much love for the HD25 1-II....

 

I have been listening to the Amperiors for a couple of weeks now, and 

I cannnot say that I enjoy them better than the HD25 1-II.  The HD25 I-II

has a quick/leanness that just can't be beat. 

 

just felt like throwing that out there. thanks.

Very useful photo and tip, thanks -- and also gives me hope that solving the "left earcup loose on headband" problem is possible too? I'm temporarily resorting to tape inside the earcup bracket to stop the left earcup sliding so much (no traction against the headband). What's the best way to disassemble the earcup to get to the innards like that, did you just prise with a Stanley / xacto or is there a proper spudger for doing this?

Keep throwing those things I want to hear :D

 

I have something to throw in as well. Recently replaced the velour with new ones from Zomo and have to say I'm satisfied.

Really gives them the needed and pretty make over. Headbands are easy to stick and earpads just need that inside out approach for most easy fitting. Note that these earpads are closed with a thin fabric enabling you to replace the original padding inside the headphones if you want to. Set for another couple of years of the bestest headphones!

Hi guys, so happy to join this thread as a new HD-25s user

I was thinking of purchasing a pair of high quality and good looking portable headphones several days ago, and the 2 choice came up my mind were the HD25 Adidas Originals and the Amperiors

those cost quite same price on amazon now, the Amperiors even cost less http://goo.gl/mSwLb

http://goo.gl/rEaJ4

but after all I ended up choosing the adidas ones, since I dont really get into aluminium products [they really have ugly marks after being used imo], i also found the amperiors cable look weak [in fact a friend of mine had to return this one after 3 weeks used because of the broken plug, oops] and especially I found the Adidas Originals pairs sounds more impressive to me, even found this pair better than my IE8s in some way

 

I dont really know if it's a smart choice, between a pair that was launched several yeas ago [as i know] and a new version people are talking about, but I'm falling in love with this adidas headphone more and more

Carefully use the xacto knife or whatever.  This will do nothing for the loose earcup, that has to do with the plastic part on the outside that keeps the cup still.  You may have damaged the bracket a bit at some point in some way, which is why it gets no traction on the headband.  Tape is probably the best idea, especially painter's tape due to its textured surface (more friction).  I have yet to encounter any issues with my headphone like that.

My cans were secondhand so I guess the previous user put too much strain on the clip inside. If I can figure out a small tool to hook round and push it back out a little I could probably fix it. Only needs a tiny amount more thickness.

 

In the meantime put some handy black electrical tape along the length of the headband section and it worked great. Knew that Sound Engineer degree would eventually come in useful ;-)
