That's why I've been tempted to get a set of Amperiors at a great price these days, and do a cup flip and try my HD650 cable on them.  The logo on those don't look odd upside down.


If you're talking about the logo on the left cup of HD25-1 ii, I know you can  lever it off. (I used a scalpel blade)  You just wedge it underneath and pry it up. Whether it can then be put on 'reverse' I haven't tried. it might be possible. I had to so when I fixed the loose sliding mechanism

Just bought a pair of these with the intention to use them for monitoring in the studio & live events BUT I have been blown away by how good they sound for music!

after a 50 hour burn in I have found them to deliver a wonderfully 'honest' and down to earth sound. On occasion a tad too much bass for me but I was expecting this. They have a warmth that feels Im being given a hug! Very nice. Im usually into clear crisp sound...why I love the Grado sound so much but surprisingly the warmth here & the highs works so so well.

Yes, very impressed and happy with them. I have long been a Grado fanboy but Im very much enjoying the sound of these :D

I used to own the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Professional Headphone but I sold them as I didn't find anything special about the sound ?! 

A sound engineer friend of mind had a set of the HD 25 I on the mixing desk of a live event we were working at last year - I had a quick listen to check something and I remember saying to him how sweet they sounded! I recently saw them for a good price so I bought a set - I guess my intuition was right!

Here's an awesome track that does HD25 Justice.

Guys, when Juno.co.uk mention cable length 1.5 meter, I wondering if the measure from where the cable split or started from the left wire (black connector)? I'm thinking of getting my self HD25 cable but I don't know how is their measurement. 1.5 meter from left side cable will be too short.

 

I contacted them but no respond.

I just measured my stock cable and it's 1.5 meters from the y split.

That should be enough long. But that's stock. I wondering the Juno Zomo replacement cable measurement:
http://www.juno.co.uk/products/zomo-replacement-straight-cable-for-sennheiser-hd25-black-1-5m/473514-01/

 

Thinking of getting along with that clamp.

 

Edit: Wondering if I should get the official to be safe:

According to my search, Zomo cable is thicker and better quality compared to stock cable.

There's limited space it the headband.  Any cable much larger then the stock won't fit...

Ah, that's correct. I almost forgot that. Amperior and HD 25 basically use the same cable and headband right?

The aluminium hd25's Earpads are soo much better than the standard pleather. They seal brilliantly and way comfier.

There are a few differences from the Amperior and HD25, but they do feed the cable along the same headband.

 

And you always have the option of flipping the cups for larger cables, like the ones used on the HD580/600/650...

Which amp do you use for portable purposes?

From what I remember, bass was slightly increased and tightened up. Haven't used them in a while though as my dad currently has them.

I have 2 portable setups that I use with the HD25s.  First is the ALO RxM3 b, paired with a Cypher Labs Algorythm Solo db, and the other is the DAC/Amp combo from the CEntrance, the HiFi-M8.  Both are fantastic, but I do prefer the first combo with the HD25s...

 

FYI, I want silver plated copper hoping for tighter bass.  I think it did the trick...

But that will make it look less cool. Haha... Anyway, flipping the cups will not change the sound right? Juno records not responding to my inquiry too. Make me hesitated to buy from them. Three sent, one replied.

How long is the cable? 1.5m?
