The AKG K81DJ's are not even in the same league. I have both so I have a more than fair idea!
Now maybe for a cable mod!
Well, it’s been 14 months now since I first purchased the Senn HD25-1, and I just have nothing but love for these headphones…
These’re the only headphones that I definitely use every day…at the office & on my commute.
They’re virtually indestructible. I toss em in my backpack everyday without fear or worry.
They sound damn good stock…with the hd650 cable upgrade, even better.
With the velour pads, they start to approach something like comfort. They clamp pretty snug, but I’ll take the tradeoff for the isolation.
IMO, the hd25-1 is the undisputed champ in the portable/sealed/sound quality/light/rugged category. I keep trying to find something better sounding with the go-anywhere attitude of the hd25-1…but it’s still not out there, not that I’ve found anyway…
I'm in the same boat as you are, I'm eagerly awaiting my paycheck so I can buy them.
