Today's product comparison has Music Critic comparing the Sennheiser HD 25 Professional DJ Headphones to the V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone. The team take this task very seriously - two products enter, but only one can leave. If you enjoy this article, you can also check out the full version here.
Contestant number one is the Sennheiser HD 25 Professional DJ Headphones. The first thing most people notice when they look at the HD 25 Pro from Sennheiser is the curious structure of the headband. This odd structure is what will make the Sennheiser headphones stand out from the crowd. The Sennheiser HD 25 model hasn’t changed at all in recent years, with the motto “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” being at the heart of the structure. Although it looks funky it doesn’t really provide any benefits to durability.
Next up is the V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone. Yet another beautiful pair of headphones from V-MODA. Like the M-100, the LP has a Kevlar wire and beyond military durability. One big advantage to V-MODA headphones is the hex design and interchangeable shields, which is a big change from the “cookie-cutter” style headphones that most people tend to use. You can even get custom laser engraved hex shields for the side of your headphones.
Unfortunately, these headphones aren’t really different when it comes to the materials used for the ear pads, making them very uncomfortable when using them for prolonged periods of time. Sennheiser prefers to focus purely on the audio quality rather than making it look fancy and comfortable. They come with a 2-year manufacturer warranty. This is useful if you’re a resident DJ because unless you are performing somewhere that pays obscenely well, and unless you’re among the likes of Martin Garrix, then you will definitely be thankful that you have that warranty.
Again, the LP features the dual diaphragm setup that V-MODA is known for, which gives an incredible level of sound quality not found elsewhere. Unlike the M-100, the LP comes with a 1-year guarantee. The LP also offers a unique program, a 60-day test drive when bought from a verified reseller. This means that if you don’t absolutely love them before 60-days is up, you can get a refund. Let’s just say they don’t get returned much. These go hand in hand with the best turntables for DJ's of this year.
