Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 174

post #2596 of 3347
I was just handed these heaphones to try out... no, just no.

I find both GR07's have better clarity/detail from bottom to top. It's provably just not my signature...Too melow? Dark? (Tinyman!)

I'm a bit shocked given what I've heard from both tyll and Lachlan's reviews but now I have a better feel for what they say. If I bought these for what they go... I would be in quite a bad mood, provably.... Lol. Still, it was hard for me to discern other instruments from the vocals. Even if I could, everything sounded clouded to me.

I'm actually thinking of getting my hearing checked. XD

tyll seems to like dark headphones judging from his reviews and recommendations...

Well the owner seems quite happy with them... My mind is however blown!

Can somebody compare Momentum with SoundMagic HP100?

I was planning to use that cable but you are probably right. I didn't understand very well in the Momentum Balanced mod how it was in the beginning, I Pm him to see if he can give me an answer.

Well let us know if it works out - there are very few known cable options for Momentum owners at the moment.

He hates grados and never reviews shure's newer cans.(SRH940,1440,1840) Certainly seems so.

Hello

I am thinking about buying momentums.

My ears are about 6.5 cm top to bottom,am i going to have any fitting issue, from your experience?

(I have audio technica m50 which the inner height of earpad is about 5.2cm and i have no issue)

post #2603 of 3347

My ears are 65mm and I find the Momentums to be extremely comfortable. YMMV.

I just measured mine and the top to bottom opening is approx. 5.5 cm between the seams. You should try these first. My ears barely make it in, the seams touch my ears and become uncomfortable after a while.Until that point they are comfortable. They sure do sound good. These are not on ear, so your ear should fit inside, comfortably.

I have large ears 65mm. But I feel comfortable using the Momentum outside, when I walk fast or using train in the morning, it feels secure and comfortable like nothing on your head. But when I'm Home ,yes I feel quite annoyed by the smaller earcups. Must try it yourself whether it is comfortable before buying, fitting issue can change the sound quality.

If your ears are 65mm then they can't fit inside. Are you using them on ear?

i have just remeasured my ear, 62mm , It can fit inside but because my ear are quite long and oval shaped, but it fits inside nicely! like on big hole

Does the seam inside the pad rub on your ear? After a while that's what bothers me.
