What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser HD 8 DJ Headphones
  • The headphones fold up nicely so it's easy to pack away. The set comes with a nice case but the case is a bit big. Great size and weight.
  • The first thing I noticed is the weight and build quality—It’s very obvious these were made to last a very long time.
  • They are light weight and you could wear them for pretty much the whole day with no stress on your neck.
  • You can folded and placed headphones in a compact case that you can take with you anywhere.
  • The weight is poorly balanced and therefore, after an hour there is discomfort when wearing them.
Sennheiser HD 25 Pro Audio Professional DJ Headphone, Black
  • Compact, light, great frequency response, convenient swiveling on the earpieces, all in all, excellent headphones for DJs!
  • I use them everyday (music production) and they're light-weight and this is a brand who cares about sound so much.
  • Lightweight, comfortable, and versatile make these perfect for run and gun video/film style.
  • Nice sound and not too heavy to wear. The coiled cable is much heavier than strait so you can make them more lighter.
  • Sounds good, easy to repair, light and comfortable. This is obviously a reliable workhorse set of headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser HD 8 DJ Headphones
  • The lower-mid bass, to me, is what gives the music’s overall tone and powerful drive, and this is where the HD8s shine the most.
  • It is very warm sounding and powerfully present, but never overpowering. The low sounding drums you hear will be there but will be defined and distinctive between other bass frequencies.
  • These headphones are build like a tank, well almost. The materials are combined in a way that make these feel extremely durable.
  • My only complaint is that the included cords were made for DJs (duh) and are very long.
  • The headphones, after a long period of use, can sometimes feel uncomfortable due to the tighter clamping.
Sennheiser HD 25 Pro Audio Professional DJ Headphone, Black
  • The range of the HD 25's is very good; I feel the bass is rich and and mids/highs are crisp.
  • Sennheiser has found a good balance between low and high range frequencies. I cranked my volume pretty high and I did not hear any clipping or distortion.
  • These headphones have very good sound clarity with minimal false coloring across all frequencies and provide a noticeable depth of sound stage.
  • Great volume, articulate bass and clean frequency response.
  • The only thing I would change is adding the option for a cord with mic and volume control and for them to go just a tad louder.
