The Momentum is a brand new product.

 

They're also quite unlike any other headphone Sennheiser has ever produced (in appearance) to my knowledge so I'm not sure what headphone you're thinking of from 8 years ago. Maybe something from a different manufacturer?

Try here:

Use the 'Headphone Archive' menu in the top left corner. They have pretty much every headphone Sennheiser has released since you were 18. I doubt you'll find any that look like the Momentums.

Not to be obvious, but they have no history because, well, they're new. biggrin.gif They were introduced in September of 2012.

I think he meant Sennheiser's history. But I digress... lets get back on topic.

Just gotten a silver cable onto my hd650....

and swapped out the thin foam over the drivers, for a thin sheet of old stockings,

the sound is JUST RIGHT for my ears, smooth, bodacious with hints of clarity :P

Late nite listening, a glass of oaky shiraz, and choral music....this v comfy hd650 is perfect atsmile.gif

Nice! Glad you like them!

After a week, I can confidently say that I absolutely love my HD650s! biggrin.gif Nice smooth, relaxed sound that makes even bright, fatiguing CDs tolerable, no, enjoyable! (Disclaimer: I'm a vinyl man).

These cans are so easy to listen to, effortless is the word.

Creep by Radiohead and The White Stripes aren't harsh anymore!

I agree... very smooth and relaxing.

Hey does anyone know a link to J$?  I am looking to get some awesome leather pads for my 650.  Listening to Sharon Van Etten right now and it is sounds amazing.

Bear in mind that different ear pad material will alter the sound of your headphones.

J$ doesn't have leather ear pads for the HD-650.  Only Beyerdynamic and Denon angle pads.  

 

On the other hand, we need to petition Sennheiser to reduce the cost of the HD-580/600 and 650 pads.  $58-59 is crazy for velour pads.  Even their pads for the HD-555/595/518/558 and 598 any run about $18 a pair (plus shipping.)
