Some of the common features of Sennheiser Amperior headphones include a closed back, Dj-style rotating earcup, modular cable, a dual cable; one with a microphone, iPhone remote and neodymium drivers.
Sennheiser Amperior Headphone Review: Design and Comfort
Different from other headphones closely related to these that may cost you £100, there is a difference between the two and this is why the Sennheiser Amperior variety costs £260 and you need to be careful when you go shopping for this to avoid making this mistake. Some of the characteristic features of these headphones are a two-piece headband, rounded cups and cables that poke out from the top.
It will be important to note that though Sennheiser Amperior headphones may not have a catchy appearance as is the case of Bowers and Wilkins P5, they are quite unique in that the standard pads are composed of velour-topped soft foam and instead of textured black plastic; the cups are composed of silver aluminium.
Those who wear glasses or those with sensitive ears, may have a challenge coping with the firm grip of the headband of these headphones variety. We found in this Sennheiser Amperior Headphone Review that they may also be a bit less luxurious than other headphones but the new pads on them are more comfortable than those in other headphone sets. Carrying these headphones around is an easy task because the design is not too large and the frame is flexible.
For studio/Dj style enthusiasts, the left earcup swings at 90 degrees both ways for monitoring as it is referred to by pros, which actually means one-ear listening.
Cables and Convenience
Other than that, these headphones come with two cable sets with one of these accommodating handsfree housing for iPhones while the other is plain. Perhaps in an effort to reduce the bulk and ensure comfort, the wire in this case is thinner with low impedance than that of HD 25s which allows them to be effective even where a separate amp will not be used and to enhance portability as well.
The Sennheiser Amperior headphones have been found to be quite effective in isolating noise on on-ear headphones and this has worked better on trains in which case filtering out near proximity sounds was quite effective, though a challenge was experienced in dealing with low-end rumbles.
