Review : Sennheiser HD 25-1 II - Page 7

post #91 of 136

I prefer them Black also.

 

Just wondering if there was a Price Increase in the last year on these since I performed a Search and could not find anything.

 

They are in my Amazon Wish List but the lowest price on Amazon was $130 and they are now at $200.

 

Kind of mystified with this.

i also plan to use Canare Starquad to DIY a cable for my HD25-1...

Did you nab them online, or is there a retail shop in Metro Manila that sell these for a decent price? Speaking of price, how much did they set you back?

 

Salamat :P

 

Try looking for Egghead Audiohub from Robinsons Galleria. They have a wide range cans there and iems too!

One of my favorite cans! They're so portable and fun to listen to. Got mine for $150 and I alternate between them and my D2000s. Glad I found this thread!

I don't think how many people realise how good these babies can sound straight out of the box.

 

Forget the changes. These puppies sound great with any reasnable front end. I use mine with a Neco soundlab v3 and an Ipod 5g.

 

Forget all the cable changes just enjoy the music. Now mine is burnt in it sounds better than sex itself. Well nearly...!!!

Do you guys recommend changing the cables? Which cables?

can consider if the sound still not satisfied your ears~ can's change the sound signature,but hope can improve the sound qualities~

 

people said the copper cable will more suit for HD25~

 

now trying the DIY copper cable.

 

other choice is HD650 stock cable, this is OFC cable~

Hi:

 

I am new at the site. I've owned the Senn Hd 25-1 II for five years and enjoyed them tremendously. I use them only on the road (I have a dedicated listening room at home and I don't need a can there). My question: what is the next step in the never ending search for a better on the road sound if I don't like IEMs? (I have a Shure 500 and while the sound is quite good, the comfort level is not). My budget is U$S 400-500. Many thanks for your help, Pablo.

Dang, I just gave up on those cans. I bought a K242 in their stead. While not necessarily as workable as a portable can, the SQ pretty much makes up for the inconvenience it causes me. I just wish that they were better at sound isolation, but that's probably asking a bit much of a semi-open set of cans. 

 

Still, getting those Senns for outdoor use is a thought...
