These headphones are priced at Rs. 27990,23990 and 19990, respectively, and will be available on www.shop.sennheiserindia.com and across leading retail outlets across the country from March 19, 2014.
According to Sennheiser, the headphones have been developed in conjunction with some of the world’s top DJs, among them Bob Sinclar, Luciano, Andy Baxter, Missill and Davina. The best sound quality tops their list of demands: the new headphones deliver excellent, dynamic sound reproduction, inspired by the legendary HD 25. The three new headphones deliver excellent, dynamic sound reproduction with the highest levels of external noise attenuation. The durable materials, exceptional build-quality and unrivalled product support make these the headphones of choice for professionals.
The DJ headphone range is built for complete user comfort for hours at the decks, in the studio or performing. The elliptical shape of the ear cups also avoids pinching the ears and is enhanced by interchangeable ear pads for comfortable listening during long periods of use. For hassle-free one-ear monitoring, both DJ models feature swiveling ear cups with up to 210 degree of movement and three different wearing positions. With both coiled and straight 3m high-performance cables included that can connect to either ear cup, these headphones can adapt to suit any individual preference. A bayonet twist lock makes for secure connection to the headphones.

Both delivering a mid-low end emphasis, the sound remains tight and never overwhelms, with clarity retained in the high frequencies.
