    Default New sennheiser HD25 Aluminium version for the 25th anniversary

    I have recently been having a play with the new HD25 Aluminium and as it has only been released in europe so far some of you may not have come across it yet.

    It is a new revised version of the classic sennheiser HD25 - arguably one of the best DJ Headphones on the market.
    In 2012 sennheiser released the Amperior which was an upmarket version of the HD25 with 18ohm drivers to work with ipods. They were great as they had new solid aluminium earcups which gave the enclosure more rigidity but because of the 18ohm drivers they were not great for pro use as most mixers and high end equipment likes more impedance.
    Now sennheiser Have released the HD25 Aluminium which has the best of both - they have the new aluminium earcups but also have the full fat 70ohm drivers the standard HD25 have.
    It is not just looks either... The new ones weigh 20g more because of the earcups and the extra mass behind the driver helps the headphones produce more detail and texture in the bass and sub bass frequencies making them even better for production use and giving them a warmer richer sound. They have also added a little extra damping to them on the inside of the up. One other thing which is nice is that you get a nice zip up case with them as the standard HD25 and HD25-1 just come with a drawstring bag.

    Very nice indeed Jason! I watched your vid the other day! These are definitely on my list of next cans! These with a 24K gold headband would be awesome IMO. Although from your vid it seems that you really favor the Beyerdynamics?

    I'm a huge fan of Sennheiser so these will for sure be my next ones. And just to let you know I'm still loving the last pair I got from you!

    Glad your headphones are still going strong

    Yes I do like the Beyer ones and use them a lot for DJing but these new aluminiums are tempting me back to the HD25s. I am trying to find someone locally who does anodising as I recon anodising the earcups different colours would look cool as well

    Hey! I came across your video earlier today and have a couple questions.

    I currently own HD-25 II's, but I find them to be silibant and treble harsh at times.. but I could replace the cable for a copper one. My main issue with them is that I have comfort issues with them pressing down on my ear cartilage.

    Are there any headphones within the same price range, with the same/better sound quality, that are more comfortable?
    I'm trying to decide if I should just mod my HD-25 IIs or just buy something else.

    I'm using these for production work in slightly noisy environments.

    I appreciate any help!

    Software: Logic, Maschine

    ^^^

    You could take a look at the Beyer DT 1350. I've heard great comments on them.

    It may be worth taking a look at the DT770M or the Beyerdynamic custom one pro (COP). Both are over ear rather than on ear - the DT770 are often used in studios and for production and the DT770m version is designed for drummers and has better isolation due to the synthetic leather pads and the COP is aimed more at DJs and has variable bass ports to you can alter the way they sound to suit your preference.

    But the best thing to do would be to get down to your local DJ store and try as many as you can for yourself
