However, i sold them in 2012 because i wanted to try HD650's. Oddly enough, they sounded way worse than HD25's. Arcam iRdac and Lehmann audio Rhinelander fixed the situation. But all those years i was really curious, what would HD25' sound like on this system. It was really difficult to be satisfied by hd650's (maybe because of the amount of money i had to spend to achieve enjoyable music listening experience).
Well, i needed a decent pair of cans to fill my days in work. I somehow felt being risky by buying HD25s because i saw that Beresford Caiman is discontinued. I'm glad that i decided to give them one more try, except this time with Audioengine D1.
Headphones came first. Tried them on my Nexus 6P phone, wich really isn't the best option to power up headphones, but boy oh boy! They sounded phenomenal just straight out of box! I was really stunt of how enjoyable sound is. I missed that tight bass.
I spent one week with D1 dac and these headphones now. I can't be happier, i think. There is not much to talk about the dac itself, it's doing solid job. But i'm amazed by forgiveness of these headphones. They sound so FUN!
Everyday i use them to mix and every day they get better as you wear them in. I can hear my sets better and it has made me more fussy as mistakes are picked up but placing beats in the right place makes a better mix.
I used the jvc xtreme for the first 10 mixes and i have just finished vol 11 using these and the excitement to start vol 12 using these is fantastic.
To get these worn in i left them on a mp3 player
24 hrs 50% vol day 1 + 2
24 hrs 75% vol day 3 + 4
48 hrs 90% vol day 5 + 6
This has made a significant difference
I hear parts of the music that I never heard before and these headphones do not seem to colour the sound, you hear what was recorded.
They do not look like expensive headphones, which not only manes that they are less likely to be nicked but also that the money has gone into giving you a great sound. I like the fact that should I break a part I can replace just that part rather than be forced to bin them.
As I have a largish head (i.e. one-size-fits-all does not apply to my hats!) and whilst on first use I thought "ooh, these are a bit snug" they are actually a great fit with sufficient pressure on the ears to keep the headphones still but with no uncomfortable pressing on the ears.
The default pads were fine but as I bought the velour ones (at the same time) I have put them on and I think they are marginally more comfy. If I had not bought them at the same time I probably would not have bothered to get them until the original ones had started to wear out.
One of the main factors in choosing this set was the replaceable cable, it seems to be a massive design flaw in the other 99% of headsets that they don't have this option. Having ripped through 2 sets of Motorhead Bomber headphones (it seems catching a train to work in a bank is more rock n roll than they can withstand) I can say I've owned these for about 6 weeks and no problems.
Having used them rather extensively in both club and casual environments, I could not speak higher of a pair of headphones. The isolation is good, levels are relatively balanced (although would not recommend for mastering at all) and they provide a good all-round, multi-purpose pair of headphones. The rotatable ear piece is handy for djing in a club to listen to a monitor easily, although I tend not to use it. The cable is a suitable length, it can get a bit wound up but is no problem to untangle.
One of the best features is their durability; they're near impossible to break and having been used for hours and hours, they still work good as new (with the exception of the headband loosening a little). For the price they are an excellent purchase, would particularly recommend for any DJs considering the option - paying a little extra for these compared to the HD-25 SP. Would also vouch for these over the TMA-1s which can be a little heavy on the lows.
