Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 134

post #1996 of 3324
I just had an oh my god moment with these. For my birthday my girlfriend got me an iPod classic. Up to now I've been listening to my momentums with my galaxy s3 and a fiio e17. I loaded up my usual track list up on my iPod and what came out was pure audio gold. Holy crap I can not stress how much fuller/ cleaner/ crisper the sound is coming out of the iPod classic. I have a 2009 classic ( I know the classic has gone through a couple different dac changes). I tried it without the e17 and while the sound is still great, these headphones really do need to be amped. They just sound so amazing with the extra juice out of the amp. I will never go back to using my phone as my main music listening device.

I have been reading some really positive reviews about these headphones, but are they good enough to match the overall quality of the HD600s?

Build quality, yes. Sound quality, no. But then again, they aren't designed to serve the same niche.

Do any sub-$400, un-amped headphones sound as good as the 600s?

HE400 maybe...?

I was under the impression that planar magnetic headphones most definitely need amplification.

post #2003 of 3324

They do. The he400 is one of the few don't require serious amplification. It can sounds decent some modest portable amps such as the fiio e17.

You don't even need an amp if the internal amp of the device is decent. It certainly benefits, but it doesn't need it unless the device is underpowered. But don't expect to be able to run it at 50% of max volume. 

 

I have to say though, they scale really well.

Wow these sound great, can't wait to try some.
post #2006 of 3324

I own this and i really enjoyed the sweetness and smoothness but i think they need more punch, i also own sony mdr-1r which i think have better bass so if momentum got more bass i think it will be the best portable headphone up to date.

First headphones I ever had where piano and cello sound very close to real ones. I think this sound is worth these 300 bucks. I can easily imagine better sound, but I'd expect to pay way more for it.

It has been mentioned briefly before on this thread but are the momentums a lot better than the px 100ii.I obviously know that the 100s are open and will give a different sound sig.Is it worth shelling out the extra money as i got my last  px 100s for 23 pounds.

My colleague at work has PX100II, and we did compare. Yes, Momentums are million miles ahead:) My colleague said: the level of detail in Momentums is just unbelievable.

I am impressed!  So far, it may be the winner in sound between the three.  A full comparison review to come.
