    Take the Sennheiser HD 25 over the Amperior. Don't go for the Grados as they're open-back.

    You should also decide whether you want on-ear or over-ear headphones 1st.
    VCM100 / X1 / DJM250 / DJM900 / CDJ2000s / Maschine / Audio2+4 / 2i4 / HS8s / TSP 2.6.8

    I like over ear, closed cup headphones, with the cord connected to a single cup. My current pair are about 15 year old, and have lived in a gig bag that whole time. You may like different things.

    The most important aspect of any headphone is that you can hear the cue music in a loud environment, with enough clarity that you can accomplish whatever mixing style you are attempting. Most of the headphones you mention are "industry standard" and you will find thousands of people who made the same choice you will make. More than good enough can be had for <$100.

    One thing to keep in mind, like most speakers, headphones will "break in" over the first 100-ish hours of use. The sound will change during that time. If possible, find a "well used" set to test. Any demonstrator models at a brick & mortar store will qualify.

    thanks!

    is the sennheiser hd 25 ii adidas better then amperior?
    i tought amperior has better sound quality because of it's price compared to the 25


    what are the advantages & disatvantages of open / closed headphones and over ear vs ib ear headphones?
    in which one the sound quality is better? is closed over ear is the best?

    i already have sennheiser hd 25 ii for my home pc , i'm looking for something that will sound even better

    anything but beats studio , in beats sound isn't clean at all , all they do is to boost the bass and amplify the volume


    i hear a lot of trance like what armin , tiesto , markus schulz ... does, and also psychodelic trance,
    also from time to time i hear classical music like bach and beethoven, mozart, chopin...
    but mostly i hear trance

    i want something that will sound really good , better than hd 25 ii , event though they are amazing


    right now i've been thinking about Technics RP-DH1200 , how is the sound quality compared to the sennheiser hd 25 ii?
    also , how much of the music do they leak outside?
    i don't like that others can hear what i hear
    so probably open headphones aren't an option


    i want it to be answered on this topic ,
    as other are maybe similar but not the exact same question ,
    i want answer on exactly those specific models above


    thanks!

    if i were you i would just stick with the hd25, wont get much better unless you shell out alot pn money on perhaps a pair of beyerdynamics.
    i would not recommend the grado since its a open design you wont be able to cue in a club and its not a durable headphone. its a phone for the people who wanna sit on their sofa and enjoy some classical works.
    the amperior is a evolution of the hd25 with new components and imo its better (have both) it also has handsfree if you like that. the amperior is heavier than the hd25 because of its metal earcups.

    Got the HD 25's (well 2 pairs), and the Xone XD2-53's personally.

    They are both excellent, and I would have no issue in recommending either. I will say though, I aint used the HD 25's for mixing since I got my Xones. I have no reasonable answer to why though.
    Technics 1210 mk2's, Pioneer CDJ 500, Allen & Heath DB4, NI F1's (x2), Reloop Contour Controller Edition, Sennheiser HD25 1-II or Allen & Heath XD2-53's depending on my mood...
