Still, this is Sennheiser, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that the price quoted at the top of this review was missing a ‘1’, ‘2’ or even a ‘3’ on the front, given the firm’s selection of excellent true wireless earbuds and over-ears alike sitting pretty at the top of more premium markets.

The HD 250BT sound a good deal more musically detailed, agile and rhythmically gifted across the frequencies than we had predicted – the kind of headphones we might buy for a younger family member this Christmas, then ‘borrow’ for extended periods in the New Year.

The main feature of the Sennheiser Smart Control app, aside from firmware updates and battery life notifications, is its Equaliser tab. Although ‘neutral’ and ‘movie’ are the given EQ presets (with aptX Low Latency onboard, synchronisation between your audio and video content should be a given) you can create your own tailored profile on two different staves –one a traditional three-band EQ stave for bass, midrange and treble, the other inviting you to drag a pointer across your device’s screen to create a wavy line that prioritises certain frequencies and eases off on others. This last method is particularly fun and offers easy, interesting tweaks to the sound on offer. Find something you like for certain genres of music or podcasts? Save it, deploy it later.
