I will be primarily listening to chiptunes, indie rock, and classical music. Who wants to stop me?

I voted against. I bought some of those things, thinking they'd be great. But then they arrived and I put them on my head.
Talk about looking like a right basket case.
If you're listening at home, go for it.
If you're going out in public, don't.
they last a stupidly long time, you get spares instead of replacing the whole thing. only negative i can think of is that the price of [genuine] spares has gone through the roof for some reason (i'm seeing £45 for a new cable when i used to pay £15), but provided you don't abuse the cable they will last you, i know of people who have had them over a decade. so despite the cost of senny spares it still works out most economical.
have to disagree with bennyboy71 - these are ideal for outdoor / portable use as they're closed, & who cares about what they look like? they're not meant to be fashion phones. they don't look THAT bad, more like serious equipment.
you might want a set of open cans also, as these can get a little tiring after long usage (the bass from the closed cups, the clamping of the headband...). it's just nice to change / compare closed / open (& open cans are better for at home imo).
bennyboy71, you did not deserve those HD25-1. If you looked like a basket case, it was not the fault of the heaphones... And I see these on TV all the time when I am watching sports. All the commentators have them on. They are famous!
It fluctuates. I paid $120 for my HD25-1 I, but that was 6 years ago. You can get the HD25-1 II from Ebay for $155. With the HD25-1, you are paying for a very well built headphone that will last a lifetime. The drivers can handle a lot of power and they can go very loud. But very loud or very quiet, these headphones do not distort and sound excellent throught. The isolation is another thing you are paying. I am using my HD25-1 more than any IEM these days.
I just got mine today, what has been stopping me before was because I already had a pair of HD 25 SP. I was listening to a CD at the HMV shop today with a pair of HD 25 there and decided I really should just get them, and I did.

They are truly awesome cans. I use mine every day on the bus and feel like they would last forever. Best build quality I've seen.
Sound quality wise, they easily hang with my HD600. I wonder how they sound out of a nice amp. I've heard they scale very well.
