The classic Sennheiser HD 25 comes with its iconic split headband, 1.5m single-sided connection cable and a flip-away ear cup for single-sided listening. Newly designed headband ends ensure that the ear cups lock securely into place, while lightweight aluminum voice coils ensure an excellent transient response. With a frequency response of 16 to 22,000Hz, an impedance of 70 ohms and a maximum SPL of 120dB, the HD 25 lends itself to any monitoring task, whether broadcasting, live recording or in the DJ booth. The HD 25 comes complete with a screw-on jack adaptor to 1/4” inch (6.3mm) for its straight steel cable.
Its sister model, the HD 25 LIGHT, is the entry-level version for demanding consumers and cost-sensitive pro users who are looking for a good pair of mixing and monitoring headphones. The HD 25 LIGHT features a simpler headband design and slightly different drivers but brings a well-defined bass and detailed treble to any monitoring task. The headphones have an impedance of 60 ohms, a maximum SPL of 114dB and a frequency response of 30 to 16,000Hz. The straight, dual-sided steel cable (3m) comes complete with a 3.5 to 6.3mm (1/8” to 1/4”) adaptor.
The HD 25 PLUS is identical in design to the HD 25 but spoils its users with extra accessories and two included cables. Users can choose between a coiled steel cable (length: 3m/1m) and a straight, 1.5m steel cable. The PLUS version also comes with a handy storage pouch and a second set of ear pads in a soft velour version.
“The HD 25 is a true classic that enjoys an excellent reputation in fields as diverse as outside broadcasting and DJ-ing,” said Jannik Schentek. “The new portfolio is now more clearly defined with each model clearly differentiated, and ensures that both pro users and consumers will get just the right pair of headphones for their preferred applications.”
