Aimed squarely at the DJ market, the HF125s may be the very definition of cheap and cheerful. Boxed with nothing but the headphones themselves, they’re a rather small affair, with a tight grip on your ears that, oddly, doesn’t really provide any isolation - we could even hear our hard drive spinning away as we loaded up some music while wearing them.
Unfortunately, things don’t get much better when the music starts playing. The response of the HF125s isn’t exactly what you’d call flat. The bass is very prominent - so much so, in fact, that anything around 7 or 8kHz sounds rolled off. That’s fine for DJing if you just need to cue in to a four-four beat, but for pretty much all other uses, it can be highly irritating.
Still, in the context of the price point, you can’t really expect perfect audio fidelity. What you do get from the HF125s is a fairly solid set of cans that will deliver adequate results in the booth for next to nothing.
