Coincidentally they are on sale at the moment.
I’m considering them, but:
I already have HD-25sps. However they are a good 20 years old and are actually the British Airways freebies that were given out on Concord. How much better can I expect the 25s to be vs the sp?
Secondly, they’d be purely for DJing. I like that the cable is on one side, but I’m actually not sure that the headband is better for mixing, at least not at home where I do all my mixing now and probably forever. Reason being, is that I will often have them, cup facing upward, on my shoulders - and just crank my neck briefly to monitor. Although I have been mixing more in headphones and am planning to be able to use ‘split-cue’ in future.
So, am I buying these because they are on sale, or are they a worthwhile upgrade?
I understand that the cups/drivers themselves are technically different - and who knows if the BA ones are different still - but I’m not technical enough to know how impedance, sensitivity and distortion are going to manifest themselves in how good they are to mix with...
