Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 89

post #1321 of 3295

If you're not hearing enough bass then you either have a defective pair or you're looking for a basshead can like the M100

Thanks

You are not the only one.  I tried them out, and had high expectations but was completely underwhelmed with, among other things, anemic bass and improperly weighted acoustic instruments.  I am not a basshead, I absolutely love my HD201s which people often accuse of having too little bass.  Since returning the Momentum, I have wondered if my pair were defective.

I have to wonder if you guys are listening to the same headphones...

I hadn't even considered that they might have been defective. After reading through this thread, I went to a local store and had a listen. They were like totally different cans. Extremely pleasing sound, and now I'm considering another pair. The consensus is that one of the cables is junk?

So I might have a defective model...... Great

No place near me has the momentums for me to compare. Btw I'm coming from beats studios and they had good bass. So idk it might be or it might be defective

Yeah, it's tough to say for sure without hearing what they should sound like.  For what it's worth - the difference I heard was pretty much across the whole frequency range.  Everything just sounded about 10 times as lively and realistic as the pair I returned.  Bass was actually very present, mids have good weight to them, and even the highs sounded better.  The pair I returned, man, everything was just dull and lifeless.  There was almost no bass extension, no weight to anything in the midrange, and lame highs.  Not bad enough to make me think something was defective at the time, but definitely not anywhere close to what you'd expect from a $350 pair of headphones.

So should I get my ones exchanged for new ones ( I'm still in return policy). Or are defective models pretty common.
post #1328 of 3295
Never mind I'm not it return policy. Idk i bought from razors of deals. Maybe cuz their defective he might take them back. Otherwise I'm looking at warranty from sennheiser

I think you mean: you came from beats studios, and they had LOUD bass - loud doesn't mean good. The bass on those is massively bloated below 500hz and cuts of dramatically below 30hz, while momentums are almost flat all the way down from 2000Hz to 0hz. 

 

 

 

 

That aside, Momentums have an almost perfect balance of sound with a solid but never overpowering bass. 

I'm thinking it's a defective model.

The Momentum has slightly too much bass relative to the rest of the music, but only slightly. I can't understand why anyone would say they lack bass...

I completely agree, though I find the "slightly too much" very enjoyable.

 

So in terms of cables - is there actually a difference with the sound you get between the two? I doubt there'd be much difference...

I hear no difference between the cables on mind, I think there were a couple isolated issues but nothing widespread as far as I know

post #1334 of 3295

I was listening and suddenly the music stopped abruptly, and I inspected the cable and saw it had been bitten in several places with one being a mortal wound.  The lead suspect is a new kitten we just got.  So I keep the Senn cable on my lap now being down to just one and have it plugged into a much more robust extension :)

I don't think they have too much bass and I owned the Studios a while back and these have a bit less bass but it's way better quality.  If you think these are bass light then you definitely have a defective pair.  I find the bass to be very nice although I do eq more in, but with the sensa clip+ they sound nicely balanced and nothing I would imagine even bass heads would complain about, since I am one :)
