Yeah you gotta go in store to price match. Here's my short story. On Saturday I went to FS and demoed the headphones in store. A sales came over and I talked to him about headphones and stuff. I didn't end up buying anything but yesterday when I went in to PM, he was the one that was working there. I told him to PM London Drugs and he said "oh yeah I remember doing this for someone else last week too", and didn't even bother calling London Drugs (even though I had phone numbers and stock info on hand). So for me it was a bit unusual, but what I would recommend for you is to call some stores and find out their stocks, then go in to the store and ask them to call one of those stores. It's more luck than anything else because it largely depends on the rep.

 

For point of reference, here's some store stock in Richmond, BC (as of Monday):

 

(604) 448-9857 = 1
(604) 448-4844 = 3
(604) 448-4809 = 2

 

I would recommend personally calling one of those stores and verifying stock, then going to FS directly and tell rep to call one of those stores. If one rep says no, try again with a different store/rep. It's worth it to pay half price trust me. :)

True, it's really luck of the draw with the rep. Also they aren't clearly marked as clearance, which really helps you price match.

It appears that the Black ones are the only ones that have the glossy earcups, the rest are all matte.

post #2465 of 3283

Anyone know if we can buy the black cable (that comes with the browns) separately from Sennheiser? I like the black with red stitching, but I don't like the red cable. Too much like Beats and too flashy.

post #2466 of 3283
SOOOOOO Tempting.
post #2467 of 3283

So an update for anyone who wanted different coloured cables like me. Sennheiser has no problem selling you an extra cable, and here's their price listings:

 

Normal cable - $12

Remote cable - $90

Shipping (to Canada at least) - $9

 

So yeah.. needless to say, considering I paid $200 on the headphones, I wasn't interested in spending half the cost of the headphones on different coloured cables. I switched them up for the brown headphones instead. Looks classy. :D

I really liked the sound of the Momentums, but my ears got sore after about 45 minutes of listening.  Plus, they claim the leather is similar to a golf glove.  As a PGA Professional that's given over 20,000 lessons, golf gloves don't last very long.  These looked great in my hands but not as great of my head.  Plus, the remote cord didn't work for me.  I promise I'm not a negative person, but these phones didn't do it for me.  HOWEVER, they may not bother your ears, AND these do sound great.  Plus, they sounded great right out of my iPhone. 

post #2469 of 3283

Going over this thread there was mention of JAYS Control for Android to use the remote, but while play/pause works, the volume up/down buttons don't work to change the volume! Ironically they work to setup anything else, like double tapping to skip tracks. Does anyone know of a way to get the remote working through Android?

I think golf gloves last longer for non-PGA professionals.  I also think these would last much longer than a golf glove anyway, since they don't see nearly the same level of abuse.

Mine started to show wear and started to lose the softness after a couple of weeks of somewhat heavy use.  Has anyone had a problem losing the subtleness of the leather?  Or, has the leather cracked a little like it does with a cabretta leather golf glove after use.  I could be wrong...Wouldn't be the first time....Plus, I guess you aren't hitting a golf balls with the headphones as well.

No issues here, but I wouldn't consider my use heavy.  So take that for what it is.

Same problem. I also own a pair of Beyer COP and those go right around my ears, at no point do they touch. The Momentum are supra aural if you ask me. Also, this might be just me but it looks like they have identical drivers to the M100.

Can anyone here give me a comparison between the original Sennheiser Momentums and the new On-Ear Momentums?

 

I was on a mission today to try out some Sennheiser Momentums at my local audio supplies shop.

It's true, everything everyone is saying (I'm a believer HALLELUJAH) It's really a beautiful set of headphones with the exact type of sound I was looking for with all of the comfort I need for my lifestyle, but the beauty of these headphones just left me with more questions.

 

The big question is now,

 

What is the difference between the sound of the classic Momentums and their brand new On-Ear Momentums?

Has anyone listened to both? Are the on-ears comparable to the originals? Is there a BIG difference? Are the on-ears more comfortable because they are lighter weight than the larger size?

The originals will cost me around $311 and the On-ears will be about $230.

 

I know the original Momentums are worth the price, but what about the on-ears? Which is a better investment in your opinion? I don't record or dj or mix. It would just be for my personal listening pleasure, but I'm sick of settling for the sound quality of "the average consumer"

I've heard the best and now I want it.

 

Thank you so much for your input!
