Sennheiser HD25-1 Adidas Originals

Adidas Originals is a line up of fashionable sporting good by Adidas, and this is the Sennheiser HD25 1 ii Adidas with a design touch from Adidas Originals. The headphone has been sold in Europe for a few years nowstarting earlier this year (Thanks, Rosmadi 😉 ), but this time Sennheiser is bringing it to the worldwide market.

I don’t think the blue color is for everyone, though personally I’d take the Adidas Originals model over the standard HD25-1. The sound is pretty much the same with the standard HD25-1, which has been one of our favorite portable headphones for quite some time. What’s difficult is the pricetag, which should be around the $500 range. Reminds me a lot of those premium designer goods.

Thanks for Sennheiser Indonesia for showing the demo.

    For any Canadians looking for them, futureshop stocks them.  Regular price is usually $299.99, though I’ve seen them as high as $329.99, and as low as $229.99 during the boxing day sale (when I bought mine).  I may have also seen them half price ($150) during a short-term half-off-select-headphones sale but I can’t remember for sure.

      Thanks, Scottie.

      The cheapest price seems to be in the US, for $199.

    I want to buy a sennheiser hd25, but I prefer sennheiser hd25 adidas. Is any difference between them?

      A HD25-2??? Don't think such thing exists man.. you may have had it confused with the HD25-1 II, which is the same as the HD25-1, but with newer packaging and accessories. They introduced that a while ago, and all newer HD25-1 are HD25-1 IIs. 😀

    how about finding the blue pad and replace the old sennheiser hd25-1 pad, then get an adidas sticker

      The blue pads can be bought, yes. The writings are not stickers, but printed on the cups. Nice idea though. I suppose you can purchase the housing cups from Sennheiser that has the Adidas originals printing on it.

        FYI these list for $279 on amazon.com so the price premium over the standard model isn't so ridiculous.

        I’d like to know where replacement blue pads can be purchased, or if you would happen to have the part # for it. I only found the stock black ones @ sennheiser_USA

          Perhaps they still haven’t stocked the blue pads on the Sennheiser USA site. It’s a fairly new product in the US.

    Hmm just about the same price with Denon AH-100, and portable too…

    WOW the pricetag is excesive… with 500 bucks you can get a great pair of DT990 with a e7/e9 bundle.

    • Reply November 4, 2010

      Mike

      On one hand, yes. But you can't take the DT990 outdoors and look cool as with the HD25-1 Adidas. 😉

    RIGHT ON! I use Sennheiser HD-25II's for DJing, and I LOVE it when great products get with cool companies to co-brand and co-market in order to reach a broader audience – the pricetag may seem prohibitive – I agree, but a cool concept, and cool reporting as always!!!!

        Hey Mike !!

        Rod here from Brazil

        My first time here, your blog is simply awesome, never had informations about cool headphones like now. I have some questions please:

        My main tastes in music are: thrash,heavy and death metal and some eurodance, eletronica, looking around over the internet and forums, the most recommended headphones for my music tastes are: Beyerdynamic DT 770, Sennheiser HD 25-1 and MAINLY the Grados SR 125, 225 or 335. I really liked the DT 770 because of the closed design but only knew it by photo hehe. what do you think and also getting a dac/amp would improve the sound, please recommend me $100-200 dac+amp too.

        thx a lot !!!

          Hey Rod
          You listen to some really dark music there. I’d take the HD25-1 over the DT770. Add the Fiio E11 amplifier and that should be enough for now.

            thx for the informations Mike !

            yeah I was choosing between the hd 25 and the dt 770, I heard they are better sound isolating while the grados have a big lack of sound, anyways thx you
