If you've come to this page then chances are you already know these headphones are pretty special. I just thought I'd add my views after owning these for a week. For comparison I also own Senn HD250ii linears (now discontinued), HD650s and Shure SE530 in ears. All of these are very high-quality, and expensive headphones, so the benchmark is set pretty high....
The HD25s 2 ii (these are NOT the SP version, which are slightly lower sound quality, slightly cheaper versions) are tough, and businesslike. They aren't "fashion" headphones (I'm looking at you Dr Dre), which means while they aren't quite as pretty as Dre's Monster Beats, they sound rather better. If you also happen to be considering buying the Dr Dre 'phones then, having tested them, I found that they had very big bass but just average sound quality (the Pro's are pretty good to be fair, but the bass is still over-emphasized to my ears). If what you're after is very boomy, but flabby basslines that rattle your teeth, and the hell with the rest of the music, then the Dre's might well be for you. But if you want to hear your tracks the way they are supposed to sound...then the HD25's are light-years ahead.
The bass on the HD25s is big enough to tickle your eyeballs if you crank it, but it's not over emphasized, so is always tight and well-defined, with a nice tone and great punch. The mids are lush and well presented (though there is a very slight hole somewhere in there to my ears), and the highs are smooth and sweet although occasionally I find myself wishing the high frequencies were pushed a bit further back like in the HD650s. I personally like a slightly rolled-off sound in headphones, as it's the high frequencies that can really damage your ears, and these things can get damn loud!!

I use a 2.8Ghz Laptop with 4GB DDR2 Memory, with an external Soundblaster X-Fi 5.1 Pro (USB).

I would have given this a perfect 5 out of 5 had it not been for one tiny flaw in the headphones.
The headphones are so tight for users of a medium head size. After 30 mins of wearing this your ears are compressed which ends up aching. I suppose over a period of time these headphones will stretched out, but comfortability is not its greatest feature.

In terms of performance, I compare against the old Sony MDR-V150 that the Sennheisers had replaced. Hardly a comparision worth doing seeing the price differences are over £150 apart, but here goes:

I listened to some UK Garage/Funky House music converted from analogue to MP3 (320kbps LAME encoded @ 20,000Hz capture) and sampling rate of 48Khz. Firstly, both headphones' frequency handling ranges are identical (16-22,000Hz), however the Sennheiser's healthily pulls into the the lead with its precise treble range and enhanced mid allowing you to hear the vocals far better than the Sony MDR-V150. With the Sony MDR-V150, I was having to press the ear cups in with my hands to capture the details to compensate for the lack of loudness without using an external amp.

Against the Sony MDR-V150, Sennheiser's are also much louder than the Sony MDR-V150; so more detail is captured. In fact the Sennheisers have the ability to pick up such fine detail, it allows you to re-review any post-editing anolomies (e.g. a tiny crackle or a slight hiss on a previously restored music converted from Vinyl to MP3). Sennheisers is also bassier (handles low frequency ranges very well at high quality recordings) than the Sony MDR-V150.

When wearing these headphone make sure the wires are on the right hand side of your ears.

After extensive research into buying a suitable pair of headphones for an avid lover of Drum & Bass/Dance music in general, I can firmly say that these headphones are quite frankly superb. Where do I start? Bear in mind I'm using these headphones for on the go or simply at home, the clarity of these headphones is frankly second to none. So much so, half the time I seem to find myself drifting off to another planet completely endorsed in the music. I am able hear notes in songs which I have never been able to hear before and the bass, well, is extremely sharp and powerful, just as it should be - It is like having your own giant subwoofer plugged into your ears! The trebles too are extremely clear, the list could go on forever.

Some people complain about the headphones being too tight on the ears, but after 20 minutes you completely forget they're on your head. They're extremely stylish, I personally am a fan of having the wires popping out of the cans themselves. On this topic, it should be noted that almost all of the main parts of the headphones are individually replaceable which in the long run should save your wallet several hundred squids. Although the headphones are indeed made of plastic, they are extremely robust, considerably more so than the Beats Monsters which apparently are rubbish. It's not just dance music too, my old man has played a few of his more favourite classical songs and they sound excellent as well.

The only downside (albeit substantially minor) is that if anything these can be too loud. They are capable of playing music deafeningly loud, and after playing a song sometimes a slight ring of tinnitus echoes out so for this I recommend taking breaks every now and again to let your ears recover!
