TNX!

 

You're going to want an amp for these.  Perhaps something like the FiiO E12 or E18.  I used them with the E7 for a year or so before moving onto the HD650's.

You mention iPhone and Xperia ... which will you be using with these cans?

 

With my old portable source, a Sansa Fuze, the HD 25 1-II definitely needed an amp.

 

With my iPhone 5S, the HD 25 1-II sounds awesome and does not need an amp.

 

Please note that the output and sound quality of iPhones varies by model. The 5S is so far the best-sounding iPhone. I can't vouch for the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5c with these cans.

Oops, I guess they are an older model (the HD 25-SP II, not the HD 25-1 II).

Yes, the SP is quite a different beast to the 1-II, and it has inferior sound quality. A trap for young players there.

And it is lower in price than HD25-1 II

 

iBuds are also inferior in quality and a different beast from HD25.  A trap for young players there.

You miss the point.

 

It's true that ibuds are cheaper and inferior in quality, but a person who reads a rave review about the HD 25 1-II and goes out to buy them is unlikely to mistakenly buy ibuds. He could, however, buy the HD 25 SP by accident, because it has a similar name.

 

Nedifer made this exact mistake in the link above.
