Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 170

post #2536 of 3359
The Momentum has better mids... but the D7000 does everything else better, though the bass is a bit loose next to the tigher Momentum bass...so depending on what you think of the Denon bass, the Momentum might be an improvement there.

The D7000 is my fave headphone ever, but I REALLY love the Momentum sound as well, for different reasons. I'd say it'd make a good compliment, really.

Not sure why you'd want to switch unless you wanted to take music outdoors. 

 

That's actually what turned me on to these.  I need to find somewhere to give these a listen first...

Yeah, I do love them.  I might just have to bite the bullet and have both.

Just click on locations.  Should be an MHT somewhere near you that will have them on display.

 

**Disclaimer.  Yes, I work for them.**

This question is more geared to users that have had substantial amount of time with their Momentums (more that just a couple of months).  I am thinking about purchasing the Momentums again to compare with my M-100's.  I briefly owned the Momentums for about a month earlier this year, but sold them to help fund another endeavor.  My question is about the longevity of the friction slider (for adjustments), does the slider eventually wear to the point that it doesn't stay in place.  If I purchase these I plan on keeping in the case when not in use and for transporting to and from home and office (I'm very particular with my equipment and take great care in my investment).   I understand that the earcups have to be slid to smallest position to fit back in case, so will it eventually wear with daily adjustments when taking in and out of case?

 

I appreciate any input on the topic.

I've had mine for nearly 11 months and the adjustment sliders still have a lot of friction.
I doubt they've lost much friction if any.

I'm very happy with the build quality.

It has to be close to a year now that I've had mine and I don't notice any significant reduction in the slider friction.  I always store mine in the case as well - so the sliders have received a lot of use.  I'm very happy with the build quality as well.

Thanks GREQ and frankrondaniel for your input.  Makes me feel more confident in purchasing them.

Hate to be a stick in the mud but I've seen some momentum a at bestbuy and future shop and they lost a lot of friction. It slides far too easily now. I don't personally own the momentums but just an observation

I'm sure they're handled to death...most headphones don't last long there. I've owned 2 pairs of Momentums and never had this issue. My second pair is now over 7 months old and they are still tight.

At my local Best Buy they've had the same display model for months (they have a scratch on one of the cups) and the slider still works perfectly.

oh i certainly hope so, i wish they could fold up into its case that would solve a world of issues

 

that was one concern i had when contemplating on whether or not to purchase the momentums

 

that and the fit (its cosy on my ears) and by cosy i mean my fit perfectly (not in the best way) there was no wiggle room) the outerside of the ear touched the fabric inside---> making me question their long term comfort

 

on a positive note they isolated well not at iem level (like my re400s) but better than any other over ears i heard (i haven't heard much) soo take that with a grain of salt

post #2547 of 3359

I have averagely large ears, But Momentum has the best comfort and sound to be used during a long walk, train and bus ride, its very secure and comfortable.Whereas the M-100 fit strangely on my head and very uncomfortable for longer period of time tough the Sound is slightly better in Bass department. Overall, I prefer the Momentum for general walk and travel purposes, It is one of the best together with KEF m500

That's the purpose of 2 years global warranty.

The question is, with the eventual decrease in friction, will they slide around while on your head?  The way they sit on the head, I don't see this happening.  If they don't slide around while you're wearing them, then it really shouldn't matter.  

post #2550 of 3359

Also we don't know yet if there will be an eventual decrease in friction because nobody has made a reputable claim yet, and the headphone is still too young to know if this will be a symptom of it's old age.

 

For all we know, the in-store 'slidey' Momentum was a victim of abuse.

 

If this has happened to someone even before their Momentum being a year old (under normal use) I would like to know about it though.
