I have the brown Momentums, and there definetely is a notch at right around 4.5khz, so now I'm curious if this is an anomaly?
go to http://www.audionotch.com/app/tune/ and play around with the Hz, and there's definetely a huge drop around 4.5kHz.
as well, it's quite evident from the headroom graph:
Yes, there is. The black Momentums have an anomaly in the 4.5 kHz range that will cause certain vocals and instruments to not be heard. Besides that, it is exceptional. The brown Momentums do not have this issue.
(I already posted this several hours ago but for some reason it's not listed anymore in this thread. Weird).
http://www.cheatography.com/fredv/cheat-sheets/eq-tips/ , according to this, the 4.5hz is tiring to the ear. mean while, http://heartsoffireproductions.com/studio/links/sound_guide.htm indicates that the 'snap' of the snare is at 4.5hz
http://www.behindthemixer.com/content/how-eq-speech-maximum-intelligibility says it's for vowel sounds.
it seems like it might be intentional, contributing to the 'easy' sound that these headphones produce!
