The HD25-II are lacking in 'oomph' without an amp, in my opinion. With my ipod classic, the bass is barely present.

Ah ok, I see what they did there. Seems that Beyer changed up the pads on the T50p so there's a more consistent fit. Bad fit = lack of bass. Hmm. That perks up my interest in them again. My first set of expensive cans, I was doing research on HD25-1 IIs, V-moda M-80s, Beyer DT1350 & T50ps. Used joker and Armaegis' shootouts as reference. I still want to try out the DT1350s & T50ps.

Aren't the Klipsch know for being bass heavy.  I would not expect the 25-II to match it without some sort of boost.  Also go for the E11.  There is a thread over on portable amps that reviews the E 6.  Summary.  The E6 is an improvement over the E5, but not as good as the E11.  Last I looked there is a seller on amazon that is charging about $50 with a charger and extra battery.  well worth the money in my opinion.  also the real value of the amp is that it tightens every thing up.

i made a bad assessment of the HD25's... these cans jam! turned the amp gain up on my zip clip(rockbox). big difference! the mid range is insane! kick-drum is very forward with some serious authority. i just might keep these ugly cans.

Glad you reconsidered the HD 25-IIs.  They do almost every type of music well, and will easily scale to whatever equipment I hook them.  They sound good with the Clip alone, but I have a couple portable and a desktop amp that really make the bottom end bloom.

 

Cheers.

i doubted them for sure. rockbox is a little tricky to figure out. i would like to hear these cans with a nice dac/amp in the future. i alo still want the ultrasone pro900's. im starting to think im a bass head lol. wonder if the pro900's sound good for metal?

They are very beautiful if you like the motto: Form follows function. I love the cabling.
