Yeah, I think so. Not that I care so much about mainstream here, but it's not good looking to me. I guess it's all about taste, my friend.

You and me both. That's how I sound when I walk up the stairs... except for the fact that I don't describe the sound of headphones while doing it. My neighbours would probably think I'm crazy if I did that and my wife would send me to the looney bin.

Can anyone link me to what Tyll had to say about these?  I haven't found it anywhere...

 

Thanks!

Well, that settles it.  I officially can't buy new headphones until at least March, haha.  Bummer :P

How long do you guys think it will take for them to drop to around $200 dollars? $350 seems excessive to me altough they'd be sweet for portable use with any PMP.

No idea, but it could definitely happen. The Sennheiser IE80 went from $530 to $400 and now even $360 on some sites.

Well looks like I'm selling my HD25s and buying these.. the original ones are so butt ugly for public use.

 

Edit: Nvm saw the above posts. $350.. wtf. Probably going to be sold in Apple stores considering the Apple price.

I'm guessing around a year or so. I'll be checking bountii.com for them. Can't wait!!

can't justify the price with looks alone. even the line-in mic isn't worth the extra $150. the HD25 Adidas Original is currently retailing for €199 @ pixmania.com & the black HD25-1 II  is going for €169 - €179 online. much more worthy unless the Amperior has way better improved sound quality.

it's probably more of a sidegrade then a upgrade. common complaints with the hd25 are.. closed in soundstage, and shrill treble. they aren't going to change the soundstage much so its probably just less shrilly highs and a more purdy shell

The new ones look pretty nice IMO. Price is a bit steep compared to the HD25, though.

post #42 of 99

Price isn't all that bad for me, considering the prices the HD25 tend to go at in Canada...hopefully the prices for these isn't inflated here too.  Still though, is $350 actually official...?  It was March when they were supposed to announce the pricing.

post #43 of 99

actually the price is only revealed in the US sennheiser site. got to wait until march for the EU price. if $349 is the official price then the Amperior will go around for €329 - 339 in EU. But still its more pricy(for me atleast)

I thought that Tyll did amazingly well not to inadvertently step off of the sidewalk into the oncoming traffic, as he was walking, talking, listening and videotaping his own mini-review.

 

Who says that audiophiles can't multi-task?!?*

 

Cheers.

 

*My wife does.

I am more interested to get that detachable remote for my HD25-1 II if it's possible.
