The Germany-based Sennheiser headphone brand has been around for quite a while, 75 years to be exact. And to celebrate their 75th anniversary the company is running a few special discounts on their products this month. But the real attention grabber of the lot undoubtedly has to be the price drop of the classic HD 25 to a mere $99 for those living stateside.
As they say on TV… but wait… there’s more! Sennheiser decided to spice things up even further with a Willy Wonka style opportunity to get a limited edition set with golden-ticket colored pads. The HD 25 as a headphone is known for everything from DJ use to tons of broadcast production work in sports and more. The pads are included in addition to the usual black color and are limited to 25,000 units. There is also a new retro logo on the side of the headphone to commemorate the occasion.
Inspired by Sennheiser’s first open back headphone released in 1968 (HD 414), the golden ear pads come on headphones that are a fairly hefty discount of $50 off the usual $100 price tag, so if you want to add another classic headphone to your collection you might want to make haste before supply runs out.
