A bit of branding can go a long way. You only have to look at the number of people wearing Dr Dre Beats headphones these days to know that with the right logo on a set of cans people are happy to slap down the cash. Personally, I think too many people have been sucked into buying Monster Beats by Dr Dre based on the branding. So I created this website to address the balance and to review some of the alternatives that are out these.
In this post I’m taking a look at Sennheiser HD 25-1 Adidas Originals Premium Headphones. Are they style over substance? Or is this splicing of Sennheiser and Adidas a beautiful lovechild?
The Sennheiser HD 25-1 Adidas Original Premium Headphones are certainly eye catching, with their Adidas logos and sky blue colour. If it’s looks you’re after, then these certainly deliver. They feature a split headband and their lightweight feel also means you can wear them for hours without feeling like you need a neck brace afterwards.
Designed for DJs and for professional sound monitoring, either headphone can be rotated and listened to for whenever you need to do some beat matching on the ‘wheels of steel’ (if anyone still plays on them, that is).
As mentioned, the Sennheiser HD 25-1 Adidas Originals Premium Headphones are purpose built for DJs and anybody that needs to do professional sound monitoring. Consequently, a lot of attention has been paid to blocking out background noise when you’re listening to them. So whether you’re sat on the bus or walking through a crowded street, these will block out the noise so you can enjoy your tunes in peace.
As you’d expect from Sennheiser headphones with the legendary HD25-1 driver, the Sennheiser HD 25-1 Adidas Original Premium Headphones have excellent sound, with a punchy bass, clear treble and crisp highs. They might not be as bass heavy as Dr Dre’s Beats. But if you want to be able to pick out the cymbals and vocals, rather than be exposed to a wall of rumbling bass noise, then these are worth a look, particularly if you like the retro, DJ culture styling of the Adidas Originals brand.
