Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 73

post #1081 of 3347

Thanks for the picture :o. I don't see how your method would cause any problems - the 'S' thing seems quite firmly attached to the headphone, and it's a pretty sturdy headphone.

 

To take them off, I usually grab the earcup itself, with my fingers on the leather, and gently but firmly lift it a bit, then put them down. I do the same to put them on. To each their own, I guess!

Or maybe even cheaper options like the cMoyBB will give similar gain compared to a O2 or C421?

 

Sorry, not very verse in amp, so mainly using JDS Labs as a gauge.

 

Thanks


I don't feel that they need any kind of amp really, they were designed to work well out of the box - plugged straight into your phone / mp3 player / computer. If you have an amp sitting around, fine, by all means use it...but there's no need to buy one especially for the Momentum's.

Are these good for rock?

To me they are. The Momentums sound realistic; having a nice balanced sound. Unless you want serious bass, this would probably be the headphones to get. I'm pretty psyched about mine right now. Still smile like crazy when I'm listening to certain songs.

Although in the M-100 discussion thread, they are talking about how good those are with rock right at this moment here:

Are these an upgrade or sidegrade to the Sennheiser HD-25s?

I LOVE my HD-25s, but I'm also hesitating between the Momentums and M-100s, mostly just for kicks and to see if anything is better.

 

Mostly I'd like to improve the soundstage and get slightly less abrasive treble.

From when I quickly tested the Momentum, I'd think I'd lose a tiny amount of clarity, in echange for improved soundstage, comfort, and balance (although they seemed more bassy).

I also liked the lower profile of the headband: I can put my hood over them more easily than over the HD-25s when it's raining.

 

What would head-fi do? :)

post #1086 of 3347

Not sure how the Momentums would seem more bassy, my Amperiors give a helluva bass kick compared to these and I thought the sound was more or less the same between them and the HD25's?

 

Overall the Momentum's give more clarity and the Amp's more bass response imo.

does anyone know a good place where i could get a deal on the momentum's im thinking about buying them but 350$ is a bit too high

post #1088 of 3347

The Momentum is new, demand is high, and Sennheiser has pricing policies in effect on it. I'd say that your only real hope of finding it for less than $350 at this time is to buy used.

I bought my Momentums over at Moon Audio for $300 when they had their store-wide 15% off sale. It still might be going on(or at least a variation of it). Check The Deals Thread for other stores that are giving a slash in price for the Momentums or store wide sales.

I got mine open box at a magnolia inside a best buy for $250, that's probably your best bet if you can find a pair
post #1091 of 3347

Just joined the momentum club! I'm a happy owner :) Listened to them in the store and the sound was very, very good. Excellent tonality and the bass really surprised me. Very deep and impactful (easily enough for bass-heavy tunes) but more robust and flat than my D600. The mid-treble also superior to my Denons. 

 

I'm gonna let them burn in for a while and return with impressions later on.

Are they still on sale? That's an awesome price!

Well, it wasn't a sale. It was a discounted price on an open box (returned) pair because they were used. It's the luck of the draw as to whether or not you'll find one at any BB.

Can the Momentum be worn around the neck? Sorry if it's been asked before but I haven't been keeping track of this thread.

well any headphone can be worn around the neck (except a few headphones like the jecklin float)
