Modern classic

The Sennheiser HD-25 is probably one of the most widely used headphones among professionals. Since Sennheiser brought the all-rounder onto the market in 1988, stages, clubs and FOH consoles can no longer be imagined without it. It owes this primarily to its robust, but extremely compact design and good shielding. Fun fact: It was precisely because of its good shielding that the HD-25 was the headphone of choice on board British Airways' Concorde aircraft. Not least this helped bring it closer to a much larger audience. Even today, these small DJ and studio headphones have indisputably maintained their pole position.

Small, light, loud

The advantages of the Sennheiser HD-25 are easy to explain: It combines good sound and high maximum volumes with an extremely practical and portable design. The 70 Ohm headphones are stable on the ears, but not so tight that they would be uncomfortable if they were worn for a long time. The cable is also interchangeable, allowing a typical defect in headphones to be easily remedied. The headband can be expanded and tightened to ensure a secure fit, even during wild club appearances, and the earcups can be swiveled to enable comfortable listening with one ear.

The touring animal

The Sennheiser HD-25, originally designed as headphones for sound engineers, has now found a new calling: it is the ultimate DJ headphone. No wonder because it has everything a DJ needs. Very good shielding, comfortable fit even with long sets, high volume, long durability and, last but not least, compactness and low weight for on the go. It is clear that this is not only popular with DJs, so the HD-25 is a good choice for everyone who needs reliable sound on the go and in live conditions, while lasting for many years. The HD-25 doesn't give up that quickly.

About Sennheiser

In June 1945, Prof. Fritz Sennheiser founded the Wennebostel Laboratory, which initially produced measuring equipment. Commissioned by Siemens in 1945, the young company developed the MD-1 microphone, which was launched in 1946. After the development of further microphones, the company was renamed Sennheiser Electronic in 1958. Two years later, Sennheiser introduced the MD 421 dynamic microphone, which is still in production today and still held in high esteem by many sound engineers. Further groundbreaking developments, such as the HD 414 headphones and the MD 441 microphone classic, hugely enhanced the company’s international reputation, eventually making Sennheiser one of the leading manufacturers of microphone and headphone systems in the world.

Seconds of shielding, hours of partying

The subwoofers are working to the limit, the devices in the DJ booth move around on the table from vibration. You can’t even hear your own voice anymore. But the next track is already playing on the HD-25. The headphones are the retreat for the DJ to calmly select the pitch and starting point for the next transition. You are shielded for a few seconds, so that you can precisely mix the beat and then plunge back into the party. The Sennheiser HD-25 can withstand this for many hours in the evening without becoming uncomfortable or wearing out - even with increased volume levels.

hidden gem
Ahmed Aziz, 06.06.2020
originally got these strictly for Dj'ing. Been using them for almost a year for that. Never listened to music on them really. They are great DJ headphones.

After getting the urge to upgrade my headphones from my long time mdr7506's (over 15 years) to something more...…...punchy......I actually listened to some music on the hd25s with a critical ear and was surprised at the frequency response. I do like the bump on the mid lows especially since if you are listening to material with an extended bottom end these headphones will come to life. Great for doing referencing. Surprisingly after going out to listen to a few other closed headphones in the $100 to $250 range...…...
Beyers: too dang bright but so pretty n comfortable
ATH: muddy low end, might as well stick with my 7506s -
ATK: the more expensive models must be where the magic is happening
SHURE: again, 7506 might as well stay in bed
KRK: and one more time the 7506 say why are you giving me up for that?
I found myself in a bit of a confused state. In order to really improve the sound I'm getting with the 7506 and better the HD25 I would have to get into the $499 range which Im not really wanting to do at this time since I need to replace 2 pairs of 7506's.

I liked the sound of the HD25's better than the other phones. Nothing beats actually hearing what's out there because reviews for headphones...….yikes. I mean look at this one. THe HD 25s are revealing in their own way. Like the 7506's highs are not punishing if the source material was recorded well BUT if your source is drenched in skull splitting highs it will reveal that. Same with the low end. That's important. If the bottom is rolled off on like in in say country music and 70's pop, you hear just that, no exaggeration in the low end. Put on a modern rap track and they come with the Boom. Its not techno festival level boom of course, but its the kind of boom that is clearly defined and as long as you A / B with other source material (as with any headphones) you know well …..you can't go wrong really. HD 25s do what the 7506's did for me all these years but with more GUSTO. Much more defined.

But the HUGE negative which knocks off a star......and this is only for folks who want to use these as tracking or monitoring headphones...... is that the are not comfortable for extended use.

Or if you wear glasses (or ear-rings). I don't think they designed these strictly for DJ work but it seems that's what they were designed for. I looked at the other Sennheiser close back offerings and there was nothing that has THIS SOUND in a more comfy headphone. If only Sennheiser made this headphone with this sound with a larger cup with some foam they would be on to something I think. These are great sounding headphones. Don't let the size fool you. They are of course magical DJ headphones for obvious reasons but they do work as studio headphones if you can deal with the slight discomfort. I'm going to use these as 2nd option headphones in the studio, what a welcome "you already own them" surprise. Well that's enough hot air for now. Hope this is useful info.

Amazing for the price
Lolito80, 23.06.2020
I?m very happy with these headphones. I already own the HD6XX and a Sony bluetooth, I bought this to have a decent wired closed back headphones, that are suitable for mobility. The sound signature is flat, neutral, with a bass little kick, like a modern warmth to them. Not so detailed as HD6XX, but easy to drive with any phone or ipod, much smaller. More comfortable than expected even though they are on-ear. You can easily get alternative earpads to make them more comfy, as well as copper cables to improve sound, have a better connector for phones with case, and a copper wire instead of steel. Having all spares available makes a big difference. All in all, very happy with them.

You always know what you're getting with Sennheiser :)
SteveStevenStevenson, 09.12.2019
I use these mostly for monitoring the audio when I'm making a track but I'm amazed how well they perform when DJing !
To be honest at first I thought that they'll be heavier. The design is slick and sexy but the build quality seems cheap and that is because of the plastic casing ( imho ).
If you want to use them just for listening music, these headphones are not for you. Some of my friends said that they lack low end and the mids are too loud but when you're in your studio you should either pair them up with your desired audio interface or search for other brands/models as these might not be the ones you should buy.
When I'm playing music these headphones do the trick for me. For all DJs out there looking for new hphones, get these! They work a wonder! No wonder all of the best have been using the same model for the past 20+ years!
All being said, you should document yourself why and if you should buy these as some might find wondering themselves why did they buy them in the first place.

One of the best dj headphones on the market
Gerge, 09.03.2021
I'm using mainly for djing. Headphones sound a little mid to me, which is very useful for mixing especially in loud environments. You can really feel the punch and perfectly mix the tracks. However, after a while there is a slight lost of signal happened to the left side and sound get lost sometimes. I think it is happening because of the rust formed between joints.
