The Adidas originals are the same as the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II. From a technical stand ponint, there is also the HD 25-13 II which is a 600 ohm variant and the HD 25-SP II which has a higher SPL rating and is 60 ohms as opposed to the 85 ohms of the HD 25-1 II.

 

The only difference between the Adidas and the regular HD 25-1 II is purely cosmetic.

The Adidas edition HD25 IIs are no different then the black ones.  Merely a premium for looks.  I made the same choice as you, they do look better...

Like everyone has said, there is only one version of HD 25 adidas originals and they are the HD 25-1 II. I just got them recently, too. Then I had to get a blue case for my iPhone so I'm totally matchy matchy, lol

Why not just get a stock HD25-1 II and a blue velour set from ebay? This way you get the same look for less than the premium. I don't get the Adidas thing. 

 

Stock HD25-1 II with blue velour pads and headband:

Honestly, I looked into doing that, but it's not that much of a premium to just buy the Adidas version. If you don't like the blue, though...that's a cool way to go

I guess I just don't like the idea of being an Adidas billboard. :)

The HD 25 Mk.II is identical to the HD 25 Mk.I there was no change in the headphones at all when the Mk.II was released.

 

The change was in the length of the cable (the HD 25-1 had a 1.2m cable and the HD 25-1 II has a 1.5m cable) and the fact that the Mk.II had a screw-on ¼" adaptor while the Mk.I had a push-on one.

 

The Adidas version does have the velour earpads - the normal version has leatherette earpads and the optional velour ones are in the box.

The velour earpads are about 3dB worse, Sennheiser Germany told me.

 

I use the velour earpads on my German made 22-year old Mk.I version.
