The input impedance of both pre-amps needs to perfectly match, and even there, some sound will rebound. So even with high impedance hp there will be unecessary loss.

Did anybody manage to put replacement pads on the Momentum? Something bigger and deeper to accommodate larger ears?

I'd love to get these and change the pads, but need to find out if alternative pads can be fitted afterwards.

Still can not figure it out what bigger pad that may fit to momentum cup unless they make the XL version like Vmoda does to M100. But i think the stock pad is fine to me. Yeah..they are small and is like just sit ON our ears rather than covering..but i do prefer momentum than vmoda m100 in term of comfort smily_headphones1.gif

Just scored a nice pair of these in brown...love them!! I'll need a longer cable. Is there a longer after market cable available...if so then where? Can you piggy back them two that come with it with some sort of adapter? 

 

thanks...

 

 

Oh, it's too early to post impressions yet. I'll just say that I'm impressed. wink.gif

^^ It's in the works. wink.gif

Yay. I mean, the MD would be my go to closed can if I ever needed one, but the Momentum has one up over the MD because it's prettier, and more portable. I wouldn't mind wearing that one outside. I wouldn't wear the MD or anything of it's size away from home. Considering I just got my laptop, I may have a need for something like the Momentum. Gotta weigh the pros and cons of getting the Momentum over just sticking to my beloved Koss clip ons.

Can anyone link some aftermarket cable that would work for the Momentum? 6 ft...

 

Now that I think about it, the twist lock on the Senn cable makes it proprietary.

what's the basis for portable amping w/out a line-out?

Will the data cable work with Android phones? Calls and control of playback?

You mean the cable with remote?

 

I have a Xperia Z and the mic works, the middle button works (play, pause, answer, end call, skip track), volume control doesn't.

 

I also have a Xperia S, no **** works, not even the mic confused_face_2.gif

They are built specifically to function completely with Apple iDevices and have some (but not guaranteed) support with Android devices.

I'm looking to switch to the HTC One. Anyone tried this combo? 

post #1934 of 3326

Sony phones don't seem to like these i-cables very much. (xperia p doesn't work with them either)

Volume up/down buttons didn't work on HTC's music player. Other buttons worked fine. Maybe another app (such as Poweramp) might make use of volume buttons as well? Worth a try.
