I have reviewed a lot of products from Sennheiser over the years and the German powerhouse have brought out a very affordable set of wireless headphones in their HD 250BT Wireless. Every set of Sennheiser I have reviewed in the past have had high quality audio, but are these headphones going to take a hit in quality to match the low price point?
So before we touch on the design, battery life, app and connectivity lets take a look at the sound quality.
The HD 250BT is converting the electrical input with dynamic 32 mm drivers that reproduce frequencies between 20 Hz and 22 kHz. I tested them on Nirvana’s unplugged in New York album and found the sound quality impressive particularly when you take into account the products price point. You can hear the instruments individually with good clear bass throughout, my only slight on them would be they are not too loud and I do like to crank my music up.
I really like the design of these and they are fairly light only weighing 127 grams, however they are certainly not the most comfortable over ears we have tested and I did find the plastic band digging in, adjusting the position of the cups did help but for me comfortability is as important as sound.
Looking past the comfort, the tech in these is superb with 25 hour battery life, USB-C charging and Bluetooth 5 Connectivity. You can also make use of Sennheisers Smart Control App. If you are not satisfied with the sound or would like a boost in certain frequency ranges, you can make an adjustment using Sennheiser’s free Smart Control app (iOS and Android.) The HD 250BT can also be used to make phone calls. This is done with an omnidirectional microphone that operates in a frequency range of 100 Hz to 10 kHz and provides good and clear speech intelligibility under optimal conditions.
For me if these headphones were a touch more comfortable they would be near perfect. RRP £39.99
