Usually when I get a piece of gear I sell in about a month and try something else, though every so often something comes along I simply must keep. HD251-ii is one of those headphones. They actually stay paired with my black 2nd edition Studio and the photo above is more for eye candy.

If you want something for on the go and just simply fun, keep your eye out for a pair Lee. 
 

I had a pair and I liked them very much. Very fun headphones though not particularly detailed.

I haven't heard IE80. Digital Freak loves his pair, Toxic has a set, every part is user replaceable. People do crazy mods to them  such as adding Toxic silver cables. You can turn the cups upside down and use HD600 /HD650 cables, crazy stuff. :tongue:

I don't know about that Lin, the Studio V extracts a fair amount of detail from them for my standards.

Well, this is my semi-portable setup, brought it into the kitchen to do some dishes. Runs off a pineapple/banana power source. Bass really kicks in if I add a second pineapple.

Perhaps, but I just didn't find them to extract detail like the DT1350 or DN-1000 does.

Lol I kept the DT1350 for about 24 hours because I was so unimpressed, so obviously are opinions aren't going to match here. I thought you loved the HD25? I found this post here of you saying how much you loved them? ;-)

I guess thing change eh.....

Anyway, no more off topic for me.

Yeah, I really liked them and I still do. For around $150 they are really a steal. The DT1350 has better detail, but seriously lacks bass. On a technical level I would say the DT1350 is a bit better, but on a pure enjoyment level, I rate the HD25s much better than the DTs. If I had to pick one it'd easily be the HD25. Oh, and it's more comfortable and has a larger soundstage as well.

Though wife approval is sometimes still necessary.

 

Married 27 years, the wife approval thing never changes!!

A man of experience speaking there! 

 

Think I'm going to have to drop down on a pair of HD-25's and give them a whirl. 

 

Here's my current travel rig, a little on the heavy side but in the Yo-Tank indestructible:regular_smile :

Unless the case design has changed you can only charge via LOD cable as they won't fit in/on most docks. Other than that they are great.
