HD-25's were designed with efficiency in mind. Attention to detail in craftsmanship is evident as well - from tiny bolts to how smooth the pads can be adjusted in three planes. The sound is mind-blowing*, no coloration and I didn't notice any holes in frequency spectrum either. *Actually the sound is so clear that on higher volumes certain sounds with fast attack tend to have a slightly uncomfortable feeling of ticking inside the brain - tight rimshots in particular. My favorite headphones nevertheless, probably wouldn't exchange for any others .
Excellent, but connection issues need a fix
