Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 78

post #1156 of 3295
I'd say yes as I use mine on the train and in a fairly noisy office.

Is the sound sig close to hd 600 though?

 

Also, has anyone tried the Parrot Zik headphones? Same price at 399$ though the Parrot Zik's seem to focus more on noise cancellation

we didn't get as far as them actually sending it since mine is fine, I was more just testing their support...

Yeah one of their guys actually called me personally and said they couldn't find the part in the US or Germany even though it's in their computer system. He just told me to ship it in for a new one.

Are the sennheiser momentums comfy some people on amazon say they aren't. I am coming From beats studio. Those were pretty comfy for me but after about 1.5 hours they didn't feel as good. Btw I'm 13 years old

I think they are very comfy, for me they are the most comfortable headphones I ever owned. Some people have the problem that the headphone sits on their ears and not around them, but thats only the case if you have bigger ears. Mine are about 60 - 65mm high and they fit just fine. Also they are really lightweight.

The edge of your ears will touch the cushions of the headphone. But the inside of the cushion is made of a fabric that is extremely comfortable. I never listened to the studio's, but based on opinions, I think the momentum is more comfortable than the beats.

BS 100%  I don't care about sonic of Beats but tried Executive Beats in Target the other day. They are tons better from built and comfort perspective. Wish they were half decent sound wise.

I'd say no, they're very nice sounding but they cannot in any way do what the HD600 does with air and space when it is properly amped. The overall balance is similar, but they don't compare in ability to recreate the timbres. This isn't to say that the Momentum is lousy, but it is a different headphone for a different application. And it does excel at its application.

I actually partially agree. The Metal constructed beats are lousy sounding but very well constructed. However, the weight of the Beats is what ruins their comfort for extended periods of time. The pro in particular is just way too much.

the pros are incredibly heavy, but they're meant for dj's

yeah i love how beats have the amazing durable build quality. but the sound is what kills them.

Sounds like they are trying pretty hard actually.  It sucks that they don't have parts inventory, but I would hardly say that your experience matched your pre-call expectations.  In the end, the dealer should just open one up and ship you the cable.  You really shouldn't need to send the entire headphone back.

Either way, they're sorting it out as they should.

Yeah thought the same thing, I guess I'll have to send it back directly to Sennheiser tomorrow and live without them for a couple weeks and hope they send me one back. I wish they could just send me a cable because my set was broken in and I like them. Maybe if I leave them a post it note in the box or something. They've shown that they care so it's all good.

 

 

Thing is that I tried to force it back together and now it's together and hard to adjust. :(
