The Sennheiser eH 250 is the budget version of the eH 350 professional monitoring headset: it sports the same sturdy construction and with the same fluid design lines, suitable for a multitude of both enthusiast and professional monitoring applications, from recording to live performances and even DJ-ing.
These headphones are very good at attenuating the ambient sound in noisy environments such as parties and clubs, and will let you listen to your tracks without having to pump up the volume to hearing-damaging levels; combining this feature with the slight emphasis on the LF response, the Sennheiser eH 250 qualifies for some neat (even if not pro) DJ headset. The supra-aural ear pads and padded and ultra-flexible headband are very comfortable and will exert minimal strain on your ears and head, even after long listening sessions. Even more, replaceable parts such as the ear pads or the oxygen-free cable will prolong the life of the Sennheiser eH 250.
Unlike the higher models in the Sennheiser DJ series, the eH 250 headphones lack the rotating ear piece and this is why they are more suitable for home-parties rather than for truly professional and heavy-duty use. Nevertheless, the drivers inside the Sennheiser eH 250 can deliver a great spatial sound between a quaking 14 Hz bottom-end and 18 kHz, allowing you to get the essential details from your tracks and never miss a thing. These headphones come with dual-sided high-conductivity cable ended with a 3.5mm stereo jack, but you can use them with pretty much any audio equipment using the supplied 1/4” adaptor.
This headset can blast a very serious 112dB sound pressure level with a total harmonics distortion value of less than 0.2%. Working in 32 Ohms, the Sennheiser eH 250 weigh a surprising 130 grams and sell for prices as low as $50 in online deals.
