Liked those Adidas HD 25 Sennheisers, but wanted something in white, or maybe some earbuds instead? Sennheiser's collaborated with Adidas on two more pairs, the HD 220 and CX 310 Originals.
They're just like the original pairs of Sennheisers under the same model names, but have been slapped with some Originals style - namely, Adidas colours and branding. Bet the packaging is a treat, too.
The HD 220 Originals come in white and blue, with adjustable earpads and promises of "enough bass". Enough for what, I wonder? Blasting eardrums with some drum 'n bass?
Meanwhile, the CX 310 Originals earbuds come with small, medium and large ear adapters. So far only UK pricing has been clarified for the headphones, with the HD 220 Originals costing £50, and the CX 310 Originals a cheaper £43. In case you missed the HD 25 Originals, they were £230/$US360. [Sennheiser HD 25, CX 310, HD 220]
