These are very comfy and after 50 hours use will really come to life. In an ideal world, they do sound better with a good feed, by that I mean good quality lossless music, a good DAC such as AudioQuest Dragon Fly, or better still, the Chord Mojo. Fed by a mere iPhone they sound good but lack some volume. Give them a Macbook and the ante is increased, add the above DAC/HPA into the equation and you are left with awesome sounding headphones which are great for on the move too. I would describe them as being very neutral, bigs bags of SPL at hand should you like to listen to you music this way. Bass is also fantastic, they also block out noise seriosly well. If you are considering any headphones by Beats, please do not buy them. These are miles ahead, end of.
I tend to use them with the AudioQuest Red DAC and Mojo, mostly the latter as it has the edge in terms of solidity and detail. I love how you can crank up the volume and these things do not go all floppy on you at all. It is very apparent why many top DJs use them, all parts are replaceable and they are also very comfy, super light etc.
I have owned and sold many headphones over the years and these will not be sold. If anything I may buy another pair to simply keep in the box.
You may wish to note the copper cabled version sounds slightly better than the steel coiled, marginal but noticeable nonetheless, more smooth and less harsh.
If you have any questions, i'd be more than happy to oblige.
Sound quality. Lots of portable headphones are designed with low frequency bias. The H25s’ are not and have a very neutral and detailed presentation with a fine tonal accuracy. Every part of the music just sounds well balanced and right. They also have a wide sound-stage for closed cup headphones. If you are not used to this presentation then you may consider them a bit analytical or clinical but persevere and you may start to be absorbed in the detail and musical dynamics and find the H25s’ highly musical.
Well made. Very sturdy phones and most parts are replaceable.
Limited microphoney from the cable. So if you tap the cable you don’t get a large booming in your ear.
Even at the full retail price they are worth it.
Reasonable sound isolation.
Strangely Comfortable.Read more ›
You don't have the huge bass as the ridiculously overpriced Beats but everything is sooooo well defined and balanced. Anyway, you would never buy a pair of Beats if you have a personality.
In the music production/engineering world, I see more and more people using HD25's, so I think that means something. These are sold as DJ headphones but they're way more than that.
They're better than many, more expensive, headphones that I have tried.
If you want loads of deep bass go elsewhere, these are not for you. These headphones are about quality, not quantity!
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!
