Comfort.... bout the same
Improvement.... slight advantage on the amperior with a sweeter sounding treble
Looks.... yeah, I agree with ya: the ALL BLACK of the HD25's looks so good, and so does the one piece cable
Cups scratches.... my Amperior cups are a little bit scratched, yes
They're both sooooo close though in terms of pros/cons, I would get the cheapest one I could find, although if I had it to do all over again, I would get the HD25's for the above reasons
Thats all i need to know.... :-)
I will stick with my hd25s.
In terms of impedance the hd25s play very loud directly from my nexus 7 and ipod touch so sensitivity was not definitly a problem. As i said i lile the all black look because also i grew up watching many of my favourite djs using them and everytime i look at them i am just happy to have them.
I payed 70 euros for my hd25s but to het the amperior i would have to sell my hd25s and pay 30 euros more (150 total). At first i wanted to get the silver amperiors but on the last days o started linking the blue one a bit more...... This way no more indecision about the colour.
I do agree that sometime the treble is a bit harsh on the hd25s but only a tiny bit.
I also love the strong cable, it just feels like it will last forever.....
My main reasons to get the amperiors where the improved sound and the velour pads for increased confort..... But it seems that the changes are not that worth it to the point of giving up on my hd25s. Of course every change for better is good but from ehat i read it does not seem to be nothing very drastic....
