Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 76

Before

After

Pretty disappointed considering I've babied these cans since September. I always grab the metal jack when I unplug and this eventually happened. Considering how much they cost it kind of got under my skin a little.
They still work fine though.


Just a word to the wise:

 

I was becoming fed up with this jack pulling apart everytime I touched it. I noticed glue residue on it recently and figured I'd take it upon myself and glue it back together. Problem is that when I dripped a drop or two of super glue down into the jack, it must have seeped into the bendable jack and seized it up to where it's pretty hard to bend the jack to 90 degrees. So now I'm pretty much stuck with a straight jack (which bothers me). After doing this I seriously doubt Sennheiser will help me with this issue and it will probably cost $100 to buy a new part from them (because these f-ups are usually expensive).

 

Don't make the same mistake as I did. Pretty disappointed considering I even have to think about this at $350.

I don't understand why you didn't simply take up Sennheiser on their 2 year warranty. I have no doubt they would have replaced that cable. 

post #1128 of 3325

If I recall correctly while reading their warranty policy one time, I think it said that the warranties don't cover cables.

 

Not to mention that we all know warranty programs are a nightmare to go through. I can't recall a single time where I tried to have something replaced and the company wouldn't. Oh well, that makes me a fool.

 

I'm just posting this as a warning to others if this happens to them

Why not just replace the cable?

Replacing an in-line mic cable will probably cost more than I'm willing to pay.

Why didn't you just call them?  I'm sure they'll still just send you a replacement.  It is a little unreasonable to expect ZERO defects out of all the headphones they manufacture.  This would have been such a simple fix had you called them the first time.  Any additional hassle you go through at this point is all your own doing.

Which is more tedious? To take the photos and upload them on head-fi with a short written paragraph or to just give them a call?

I'd say you're probably right, but then again I keep thinking about how it took me 5 mins to post the pics where it will take me at least 15 getting them on the phone only to try and talk to an Egyptian guy named Robert that will probably tell me it will cost $90+ shipping to fix the problem.

Maybe I'm just extremely cynical :-/

Haha but why an Egyptian?

wow, you must have had a horrible experience with sennheiser in the past...

I've never dealt with them personally, but my guess is that they'll take care of you. It's ridiculous though to expect a product of any type with a zero defect rate, much less a $300 headphone.
post #1136 of 3325
I've dealt with Sennheiser before on a warranty issue with no problems, replacement sent within a week. Also Bowers & Wilkins on a remote for my Zeppelin Air and new remote sent next day. Only one I had issues with was Philips on an iPod dock- 9010 which they refused to help with, luckily took it back to the store ( John Lewis) and they replaced.

Not really a deep review but something to add

 

...... Got the momentum about 2 weeks ago, I really don't have much experience to compare with other headphones, but I can say they are very comfortable, the ear pad leather have a very soft feel, like having a pair of small pillows on my ears.

Very light headphones, yet don't feel or have that cheap plastic look (that was my impression with the Sennheinser 598) and barely feel they are on my head.

I also own a pair of ATH Pro 700 (MK1?). Even though the sound is good, they feel like wearing a hammer on my head.

 

The case is big, so I don't carry it around, and when I'm home there isn't really a reason to use it.

 

The only thing I'm not sold yet is the little cables that connects the earpads to the headband, they are a little thin and sometimes I'm afraid they'll break, but maybe it's just me.

 

I love these headphones and probably won't buy another for a while .....o2smile.gif ( yeah right )

Bought the Momentum with discount for €150 ($200).

I will make a small review about the Momentum and maybe a comparison between this headphone and my K550, if someone is interested smily_headphones1.gif
