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.
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.
