Looks like a scam to me.

Well, El Corte Inglés is one of the, if not the biggest, retailers here in Spain, you can check their website anytime. Just google something like "Corte Ingles Momentum".

 

And yes, I'm new so what? Buying the Momentum like a month ago brought here in the first place. I have no big bucks to spend on hi-fi gear, so I'm constantly looking for deals and I consider this a major deal worth sharing .

No offence, but it's the little things like not posting this in the nearly 3 year old "Deals Thread" that set off the alarm bells.

New members and scammers don't know about the little habits and etiquette that older members have picked up on. 

 

Also I believe most of us Europeans here, having spent around 300 euros on these would find it difficult to believe 179 euros is legit. 

 

That's why I said "looks like" a scam. I didn't say it "is" one.

No scam. It must have been a mistake on the site, as the price is back to 299€ by now.

Sennheiser does not allow discounting on this product.  Being that it is new, they are probably more diligent in enforcing this policy compared to the HD650 for instance.  My guess is the retailer just a received an email from Sennheiser and had to pull it down.

One of their stores is like 50 meters away from where I work, I bought my Momentum there, for 239€, that is 20% off of the suggested retail price, but for this weekend, and this weekend only, they added another 20% off of the retail price, leaving them at a juicy 179€. Amperiors were also at 179€.

Plus, I know some other two stores were the base price of the Momentums is 235€. So I don't think Sennheiser is that diligent with the pricing, at least here in Spain.

I got the Momentums for 300$US(normally $350) from Moon Audio. But It was a store-wide 20% off sale.That might of been allowed.

It would not have been.  Some dealers choose to do it anyway.

The Future Shop up here in Canada has Senns on sale all the time.  I got my Momentums there for $100 off.  I don't think Sennheiser minds selling more product when the retailer is willing to take the hit, and I suspect the company may even be offering them some special deals.

This is not the case, and they do mind.  It was not a guess on my part.

I'm starting to feel like a nuisance on this thread, but her it goes. I've recently noticed that I get a crackle in my headphones sometimes, as if the headphone chord is not completely plugged into the headphones. Coincidentally around this time songs sometimes stop (as in when the song stops and when you press play again it shuffles in my misic library), skip, or it skips back to the previous song. I do use the "smart cable". When this happens though both jacks(both the male 2.5 and 3.5) are not loose or out. It's not something that is going to make me return the headphones, it just gets annoying(it's happened to me twice over the past 2-3 days(about 7 hours of listening).

I use the 3-button cable that the Momentums came with.

That sounds like an issue with your source material. Do you hear it with other headphones?

I've seen the iPhone at least skip ahead if there is a problem with the file itself, but never skipping back... So I'd rather suggest a problem with the remote. Did you try to reproduce said problems with the straight cable?
