“The HD 25s are found in DJ booths the world over. Also, they are the industry standard for field recording engineers and for film and video productions,” said Jannik Schentek, Product Manager at Sennheiser. “Unlike the previous model to bear the name, the new HD 25 LIGHT headphones feature the original HD 25 capsules. The minimalist headband design makes them a great, lower-cost alternative to the standard HD 25 with its split headband and swivel earpiece.”
