I'll be able to comment further when the HD7 DJ arrives here (and it's on its way). I haven't heard the HD7 since CES, but I remember it as more bass emphasized than the HD8. Like it always is during CES, it was loud in the Convention Center, so, again, I'll wait until they're here side by side to say for sure.

They seem to be different, and I can't get the MOMENTUM's plug to fit the HD8, nor can I get the HD8's plug to fit the MOMENTUM. Other than the obvious difference in plug length (the HD8's plug is much longer), the lock slot is wider on the HD8's plug (it's a similarly configured right-angle lock slot with the little detent tip, but a substantially wider slot).

Hahaha I nearly took that seriously, but after looking at the post counts and our join date, well played. Your 11 days and 60 posts more experience makes me beam with admiration. I really do hope you're joking though. (On second thought, I think you were serious, blaahhhahahaha).

Jukka, it's surely not a job I envy. That dude's brain is probably swimming with "210 degree adjustable low end bass flat response detachable cable coiled straight velour high quality stainless durable plastic dj swivel club noise attenuation isolating music funnel straight to ear comfortable circumauraaaaaaggggghhhhhhhhhhh"

I also have the momentum and am looking for a headphone to mix with (don't expect a good result when mixing with momentums). I am pretty much buying headphones just to use to mix. I don't need the extra features such as swiveling ear cup.

 

Would the HD 6 Mix be my best option (because of their more neutral sound)?

Maybe just stick with the HD25? HD6,7,8 hasn't had anytime to prove itself as a headphone yet...even though I'm sure it will do just fine...;)

I would personally like to see how these would stack up against either the K551 or the K545. From the first glimpse it just appears to be a '2014' Version of the HD 280 Pro painted in Blue and Black but I haven't actually tried them out yet so I cannot comment yet.

how would the 25 compare to

They are completely different headphones from the DT880. They are almost polar opposites. The DT880 are semi-open (airy soundstage, virtually no isolation) while the HD 25 is closed and isolates quite well. The DT880 is very neutral aside from a slight treble peak while the HD 25 are a DJ headphone so they have slightly empasized bass and are quite non-fatiguing in the highs. If you're used to DJ headphones you'll find the DT880 to be quite bass-shy. The DT880 is a full sized, semi-open headphone with a very long cable so its not very useful at all as a portable headphone while the HD 25 is pretty good as a portable.

 

They could hardly be more different. You should get the one that matches what you need.

 

That said, this is all off-topic. Ask in the DT880 or HD25 thread.

Totally different headphones, and DT880Pro slaughters HD25 in terms of sound quality.  DT880 is more analytical and tries to be more accurate so it does not have over-abundant midbass like HD25 nor does it have HD25's big 7kHz treble peak.  DT880 also boasts clearer treble and a far larger soundstage, among other things.

If both interest you, I would recommend giving them both a try and see which you like best.

Edit: and the build quality of both is terrific, comfort is better on DT880 but isolation is far better on HD25.

Well... There still doesn't seem to be much on them yet as of now. Excited to hear them myself hopefully soon enough. 

I like the Senns Momentums but perhaps bigger earcups, touch more bass, less bulky case and I'll be good to go.

Build quality is flimsy with cheap plastics used in some key areas that break. Noise isolation is subpar which is really baffling to me, what DJ would design a DJ-headphone that isolates outside noise poorly? I for one, want to protect my hearing as much as possible. So, I hope Sennheiser have really thought what a DJ real DJ needs, rather than what's fashionable and make "DJ-headphones" for the fashion-oriented consumer who want to get that cool DJ-look while listening music with their iPhones and whatnot. 

 

Really looking forward of reviews of HD-8 DJ's with DJ-use in mind!

 

I think that most brands will usually design "DJ" headphones for the fashion-conscious crowd with portability and style in mind. I don't think there are too many DJs who switch headphones all the time; usually, once they settle on a favourite, they may last through more than 1 pair for an extended period of time. For example, the venerable HD 25-1 is a hot pick, and is still widely regarded as a top class DJ can, despite its age. Hence, I don't know many DJs who would be quick to pick a different can if part of their job depends on how well their headphone performs during their set. In that sense, I agree that many brands these days are designing such DJ-styled headphones with the general consumer public in mind, rather than DJs who need more than just style from their cans.

 

I hope Sennheiser takes this into account with the HD 7 and HD 8. They already look pretty good; now I'm just hoping they sound and perform up to task.
