Because if it's JUST the bass, I would disagree. I think most people wouldn't immediately notice a 1dB change in just the bass in one channel.

No bass, bass no. Have I said bass? No I didn't smily_headphones1.gif I think it applies to the frequencies above 800Hz. Also the higher the frequency you may sooner notice that effect. Dunno.

Basically the human ear has naturally a curved frequency response, where we have the most sensibility for the typical human voice range (mid freq aroudn 3khz).

Just seen:

They are adding an on-ear to the Momentum line... I'd almost say: another one ;-)

Weird colors on the on-ears. Where is pure black without red tread or a silver model? These don't match my suits ;-)

BIGGER momentum please NOT smaller one!!!!

post #2256 of 3002

Exactly my thoughts... They were already small enough (except their case that is).

post #2257 of 3002

Actually, the smaller size puts them squarely into the "on-ear" segment and , as such, they are pretty comfortable.  Sound is basically the same as the original model.  Unfortunately, the case is still pretty big.

Why does the lineup picture remind me of beats...?
(solo's to be exact)

post #2259 of 3002

I assume because of the colors, though they don't look like that to me.

Because they have the Beats solos directly in their crosshairs. How can a big company like Senn not jump in on that gravy train? I doubt these will sound as good as the originals. I agree though, should've gone bigger not smaller.

Dang, I have not once found on-ear to be anything resembling comfortable, but those Momentum OEs are gorgeous.

post #2262 of 3002

It appears that they have redesigned their web page sometime today. I think this presentation is more classy i prefer it.
And yeah I agree on that, also they do look almost the same in size as the original Momentums, though I would never imagine a Momentum earcup being as big as a HD598 or HD650 since the design is simple and minimalistic. Probably the HD449 size would be ideal.

also: i see that the earpads seem to be similar to the ones found on the Amperiors in terms of material and overall build, that should be quite comfortable

Now I hate Sennheiser because I just started to save to upgrade my collection, maybe an HD 650 or some Custom IEMS, but now I just want this little thing. Thanks plakat for the heads-up. Just wondering how much these are going to cost??

I read on another thread $199USD.

They're definitely a lot smaller than the main Momentum's, should be getting a pair soon for my daughter, so will give them a go.
