I recommend Kaczynski post

HD-25s do sound nice, but theyr so light Id forget i was wearing them and walk off ripping out the chord.... got RH-300's instead; chunky heavy fuckers, but theyr accurate and keep my ears warm in winter

Hey guys, need some assistance, there was nothing in the box except for headphones and bag. so there was not tech specs, not promotional crap, no warranty information, nothing at all.

is this normal? did everyone else get paper work? is there somewere i can check the authenticity of these headphones?

you wouldn't need to worry about authenticity from chem records, mate.

as long as you have a receipt for warranty purposes i wouldn't worry. Unless whoever sends out the stuff is running a nice little scam of sending cheap knockoffs out to people then selling the real ones on ebay

what? i got mine from chem. records and they came in a sennheiser box (like you'd buy in a shop). opened it up, and the fuckers didn't have any earpads. i rang chemical records and complained. they sent me a pair of pads. this was about 4-5 years ago though.

Im sorry, but i think i've just found my signature! That is absolute gold


My HD's are still young and get a little uncomfortable when wearing them for long periods but im prepared to put up with that for the listening pleasure they provide. They are awesome, i love A-B'ing the various headphone's I have here because it reminds me how awesome they really are.

Hey guy's,


Just came to ask a quick question, I bought a pair of hd25's from this site:

http://www.aussiedeals.com.au/Sennhe...p/sku16308.htm


Mine don't seem to have the sennheiser logo on the side of the pad like in the picture which is making me suspicious that these are fakes...

They feel very flimsy, like cheap cheap plastic.

Are these fakes?


cheers fellas

Don't be put off by the fact that it doesn't have the same logo from the picture.
There are a few variations to this headphone. I had a similar fear when I recently picked up a pair from the States (due to AUD) cheaply ($230 all up). But after listening to them I knew they were legit and confirmed it when I found a pic on an American retailer's website that had the same text as mine on the side, without the logo.

Edit: here is the website if it helps http://www.headphone.com/productPhot...icn=0020080026

Can someone confirm that both ear cups swivel? I can only get the right cup (the one without the red plug) to swivel but the not the left.

I agree... I don't think they're that uncomfortable but I like something with a bit more oooomph in the bass when listening to music.. I use them when DJing because the sound and bass is very accurate, but for general hi fi use they're very aurally displeasing IMO..

Much prefer my CX300's (edit: for listening to music)... Gotta get a pair of PX20's or similar as well... boss is getting sick of having to throw stuff at me to get my attention at work...
