The Sennheiser HD 25 produce a very dynamic sound signature that is well suited for EDM or club like music. The highs are crisp and mids have clarity and bass is resonates strongly for the impressive thump.

Based on user experience, the noise isolation is top-notch, I could not hear much of my surroundings even when I am using it at a low volume level.
