Sennheiser HD 650 review

Posted

Pros: smooth and laid-back sound; good bass, mids and treble; comfort

Cons: bad instrument separation; lacks detail in treble; paint chips

Sennheiser HD650 review Introduction My HD650 was my first hi-fi headphone, and also one of my most priced possessions for well over a year. I regret nothing in buying these, but I plan on selling them since they do not get enough head time since I acquired my SR-202's. I only got these back yesterday, after sending them off to get the left driver repaired since it produced ringing in the sub-bass. This pair has the new drivers, in case you're interested. I already wrote a detailed comparison between this headphone and the SR-202, but I felt that it was simply not a good review. As a result, I have decided to rewrite my review in a different fashion only focusing on one headphone at a...

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II

Pros: Relatively cheap, indestructible, good comfort, nice bass impact, good isolation

Cons: Bad soundstage, spikey treble, annoying cable

Sennheiser HD 25-1 II Review Introduction I bought these headphones about a year ago to enjoy my music with decent isolation, comfort and sound quality on my portable rig. I was very satisfied with them, and have been up until I got my IE80's. The IE80's are simply better in terms of sound quality and portability. However, these cans are still absolutely awesome in other aspects. Before I'm going to do away with my trustworthy HD 25-1 II's, I thought it'd be worth the effort to write a review about them. I tried to keep this review short and clear, without leaving anything out. I'd like to think I succeeded, but like always I kindly ask for your input. Listening setup I wrote the...

Good for gaming, mediocre for music

Posted

Pros: comfortable, good surround sound, easy to use

Cons: not modable, expensive, bad microphone

This was the first full-size headphone I bought, before I had any knowledge of hifi audio. And I perhaps only bought it to my friends with their Logitech G35 jealous, as these cans were supposed to be superior (they are, but not by much) The first thing I noticed when opened the package is the excellent packaging job done by Razer. I was not surprised, since I had bought several Razer products before (keyboard, 2 mice, keypad and mousemat; let's just say I love Razer). Several moments later I rushed to plug the USB plug of these cans into my computer to give them a listen. They sounded much better than anything I had heard before, although if listen to them now I find them horrible. A...
