    I had acquired the Sennheiser HD 25-SP II headphones a few years ago and I can easily say they have been THE best phones I have ever used (and I've gone through plenty). I recently visited a friend of mine who was in need of a computer (he's starting over financially) and I had one to give him. I really wanted him to be able to listen to music as well so I decided to pass on my HD25-sp phones to him and I would upgrade to the HD 25-1 II's. My only complaints about my old Senn's is that the headband was starting to lose some of its "tightness" due to the fact that they only had one band. The HD 25-1 II's have two and seem to be more rigid. They have incredible isolation and a better frequency response than my other Senn's. I personally like the fact that they are really snug on my head and that the cord is shorter than my other ones (The 25-sp's cord was way to long for me). These are super light weight, have interchangeable parts, have extra set of ear pads... the list goes on and on. I use them for listening to (mostly electronic) music, for music recording/production/DJ'ing and for a little bit of audio field recording. BOTTOM LINE - If you can't afford these headphones, get the HD25-sp's but if you can swing the extra dough, well, you will not be disappointed!

    It is a great quality product, but its reproduction capacities are not completely reliable, making some sounds flat. Example, my London Calling recording didn't sound good. My Sony MDR XB - 300 is more portable and is more reliable, making this song sound incredible and all other recordings sound great, even though most other song recordings sound better in Sennheiser. Maybe is problem with equlizer

    These are amazing headphones and for the price they will not be surpassed. They look and feel great for extended listening. I researched many pairs of studio headphones and finally bought this pair. The sounds are all very crisp and balanced. Very clean and not overbearing lows, mids are very clear and nice crisp highs. They are great for DJing and studio monitoring.

      Crystal clear music!!! You'll hear instruments you've never heard before. They are extremely light and feel very well made. One of the biggest selling points for me besides the sound was the fact that the company sells replacement parts. These cans are the real deal!

              I had a chance to listen to some music on my iphone with a different pair of Sennheisers and I liked how they sounded. I then decided to treat myself to some headphones in the $200 range and settled on the HD 25s.
              I listen to music at work sometimes and I really like these headphones for that. I have an ipod and listen to rap, rock, country and acoustic music and it all sounds excellent.
              The way these headphones are built, they really do eliminate a ton of outside noise. So much so that I switched the pads to the foam style because I couldn't hear my press running the way I need to when I had the leather type pads on.

              Bottom line is this: Digital music sounds great with these Sennheisers.

                  Bought these headphones recently after reviewing alot of similar headphones. I do alot of ENG sound and found them extremely good on in the field, be it in the countryside or a city centre location. Had over ear earphones before these so was wary of using on ear earphones but I've found the phones for me . Yes i would recommend them.

                        I absolutely love these headphones. It's true what everyone says about it's appearance and that pictures don't do it justice. They seem pretty ugly and plain until you're actually holding them in your hands. The on-ear design does provide excellent isolation without being uncomfortable and the construction on these badboys is top notch. These headphones are practically indestructible and if you do manage to break something (this is what I really love) you can replace any part, by yourself, without sending them in or having a professional repair them.

                        My only gripe would be that the included cable is a bit thin an pretty short, but you can purchase the same replacement cable meant for the HD600/650 and they will fit on these.

                        Oh, and the sound is phenomenal. Maybe not as neutral as HD600's, but they also don't cost as much.

                              Bought these headphones to use in my gym to filter out noise pollution that apparently is popular. Sound is great and the "closed" system filters out external sound just fine.
                              Reasonably comfortable
                              4 days a week I play in an orchestra pit where we use these headphones.
                              Every single musician has had problems with the cable connection at the shells themselves. After jiggling them for a while, you'll get them to work again. In theory a great idea to just pull out the plug and replace the cable. In practice this is a manufacturing flaw as everyone I know who has these has the same problem.
                              So once again, they sound very good. Good isolation, generally sturdily built but a serious plug problem near the earshells.

                                A great on the ear for hard rock paired with a good amp. These have great punch and hold their own at higher volumes. If boom is your thing I would look elsewhere. The new HTC One with Neutron player is currently holding its own sans amp, playing my FLAC library.

                                  Really clear mids and highs, the bass is also good. These are very balanced headphones. Would highly recommend.
