The HD 25-1-II BASIC EDITION is the full version of the legendary DJ headphones, just simply stripped of a spare pair of ear pads, meaning delivery will include the headphones and the jack adaptor. No compromise on sound, build quality or any of the characteristics of this internationally famous headphone. For 25 years it has set the standard and redefined performance in DJ headphones. Beyond all the passing fads for bright colours or boomy bass, its ruggedness and accuracy mean it remains a favourite of true music professionals to this day.
The HD 25s are popular globally for their accuracy, durability, comfort and design. Offer a full and powerful sound – if you love your music as a consumer or as a professional, then these are for you. The sound is crisp and clear even at high volumes with no distortion. Designed for years of hard use in demanding situations and all parts can be easily replaced if needed.
Wired with a short 1.5m straight single-sided cable, you can use them either an iPod or a mixing desk using the supplied 6.3 mm adaptor.
The electronic music scene has seen its fair share of big name performers. Over the last 25 years the world has witnessed the rise of the superstar DJ, as these artists behind the decks created new ways to explore and experience music. And as DJs ascended to legendary status, so too have Sennheiser’s HD 25 headphones. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the HD 25 has become an icon of electronic music and a staple product in DJ booths around the world.
A version of the HD 25s was the headphone offered to passengers on British Airways Concorde flights. Models with ‘Concorde’ on the headband are very collectable, especially among DJs.
DJs, cameramen for studio monitoring, audio equipment testing and anyone who loves great music - the rotatable capsules are perfect for one-ear monitoring and offer impressive attenuation of background noise, while remaining comfortable even over long periods of use. The robust construction and features such as the rugged, replaceable steel cable make the HD 25 more than a match for tough everyday demands. The HD 25s perform exceptionally well in loud environments.
They only come in uber fashionable black and are wired with a short single sided cable making them as at home in an iPod or a mixing desk. HiFi snobs would prefer electrostatics or obscure makes with a matched headphone amplifier but for those of us who live in the real world, HD 25s are as good as it gets.
