    This is the page for the HD25-1 MkII although I’m not quite sure how they differ from the original HD25-1’s.

    These are very good headphones, with powerful bass and crisp trebles and they are reasonably portable. I think these were mainly designed to be DJ-ing monitor like headphones but they are an excellent choice for portable use too. For example, I use them with my MP3 player for my daily commute and the sound is wonderful – you’ll need a decent player though with a good internal amp like the Cowon’s Iaudio range as it takes a bit to drive the HD25’s.

    They also do a good job of blocking out external noise, you’ll still be able to hear the underground rumbling but it will be way in the background if you are listening to louder music.

    They’re not perfect though. Quite uncomfortable initially – they have a vice like grip and my ears started to get a little painful after less than an hour but I’ve been told they do stretch slightly and become a lot more comfortable. I also find the bass a little boomy and lacking slightly in detail at times and can sometimes feel the `cans’ vibrating slightly. The bass has also at times caused a slight sensation of my ears `popping’ like when a plane takes off but it’s nothing major. Also, sound quality although generally excellent across all types of music, is not the very best in this price range. I have noticed a few instances where some more subtle details, although quite clearly present, are not as clear and separated as they could be. In that respect, these are not the best headphones for classical / orchestral music where you want to hear clear separation of the different instruments and feel like you are on or near the stage; the HD25’s don’t really provide that type of soundstage effect. I suppose this is the trade-off for being a lot more portable than full sized over the ear phones.

    Still, extremely pleased and impressed with them.
