To note, although the two look almost like twins lost at birth, the TMA doesn't sound like the HD25 at all. It's funny but I often say that the TMA-1 is what the HD25 would have been if Sennheiser made it... And before you say anything yes I know the Hd25 was made by Senn. It just doesn't sound like it was: it's forward sound is a bit of a departure from the typical Senn consumer house sound. By the way I winder why the HD25 is included in this lineup, it is neither Particularly bassy nor a fashionista phone by any stretch.
Ironically that is why I like the TMA-1s... I've been a Senn user for a while and I love their sound... It also helps that TMA-1 responds well to EQing... My friend has a pair of HD25s, When I see her we'll probably do comparisons :) I might even consider buying them after I audition them properly...
We can do comparisons any time man! I'd love to hear the TMA-1's :)
Nice write-up as usual Joker!
