Hello, i cannot decide between thease 2 headphones, i have super fi 5 and i love them, a few days ago i went to a shop and i heard the hd25 and i liked a lot and i have enought money to buy it, but im really interested in the sennheiser ie8, they seems to be very good,
A few questions , are ie8 in sq better than hd25? Are ie8 much better than ue sf5?.
Help me please, for me the only thing important is sound quality, i like trance music.
Thanks and sorry, my english is not very good.
I would go with the HD25. I find the HD25 better than the IE8 an every way. The IE8 has a warm sound with a lot of bass, VERY laid back mids. The HD25 has a brighter sound, but still with very punchy tight bass.
Depending on location, the IE8s from legit sources are at least twice as much as the HD25-1. The HD25s are fantastic and I have not found any type of music that they don't handle reasonably well. The IE8s are probably fantastic too, but the are a little weird to put into your ears so I didn't get to experience that. For my two cents worth, the price difference makes the HD25s a no-brainer choice.
