    Looks ugly and cheap. So I bought the V-Moda M80, which looks AWESOME and COOL!! Taught me to not judge a book by its cover. Let me explain.

    The V-Moda looked good, sounded ok, but the QC was terrible. The set I got had channel imbalance (right side noticeably louder than the left) and creaky construction at the metal hinges where the headband connects to the cups. I sold the V-Moda.

    Next, I bought the highly recommended ATH M50. Sounded ok, bassy (definitely for bassheads) and isolation was good. BUT the long cord and size didn’t make it as portable as I’d liked it to be, so it was relegated to home use for watching movies and playing games.

    So my search for a sub $200 (unamped) portable headphone continued. I looked at Grado and other brands. Scoured forums and more forums for recommendations and whatnot. Annoyingly, people kept recommending this pair of headphones which led me to think that everybody on head-fi and other audio forums are all fashion-blind audiophiles/retards. However, logic dictates that if a bunch of monkeys are gong “ooh ooh ahh ahh” and pointing at something behind you, they all can’t be wrong, so there might actually be something behind you that’s worth looking at (a tiger mayhaps). So going against my better judgement, I ordered a pair. Best mistake I’ve ever done in my life, I must say.

    The box was simple. Too simple. After the likes of the fancy schmancy case that came with the V-Moda, the Sennheiser box looked blasphemously cheap for the price that I paid for the headphones. And when I opened up the box, I was greeted with a flimsy looking plastic pair of headphones that has “Made in Ireland” printed on it. Oh golly, they might as well have made it green, white and orange with three leaf clover shaped headphone cups to go along with the Irish theme. I was slightly disappointed, but that was short lived.

    And then, by leprechaun magic, everything changed when I put on the headphones. I could hear every note, every high and every low. Music came to live and all was good in the world. It already sounded great before the burn in. Channel was balanced (unlike the V-Moda). Isolation was great, especially for subway travel. I finally understood why it came highly recommended. And after a few hours of burn in, it got even better!!!

    Back to the construction and the looks. The construction looks flimsy but it is not. After using it for the past couple of months everywhere I go, on the plane/train/wherever, and throwing it around without care, I appreciate the extremely understated but robust construction. It seems to take whatever I throw at it. With the V-Moda’s I felt that I needed to baby it more than I do with the HD-25s. And the pictures online doesn’t really do it justice. It actually looks great in real life. Or maybe the whole rugged industrial look grew on me. I am definitely a HD-25 convert. I wasted time and money buying other headphones before I bought these, but you have the choice to not make the same mistake. Just buy these and be done with it.
