Thanks!

There you go. Problem solved. :smile:

Have anyone got a new ivory momentum over-ear? Could you share some feelings?

It's really only a color change.  Everything else should be the same.

I saw one in the shop a few weeks ago. 
This made me feel happy.
Then I plugged it into my ipod and put in on my head.

This made me feel excited.

Then I played some music.

This made me feel disappointed.

So does anyone else have the problem where when you connect the cable to the headphone in a certain way sound only comes out of the left side? This has been happening periodically and drives me crazy - I have to take it out and then experiment until I can finally hear sound coming out of the right cup.

Maybe a stupid question, but are you fully inserting the cable and twisting clockwise to lock the connector?

Heh heh...of course...

I'll try that right now

 

EDIT: It seemed to work. I'll let you guys know if the problem manifests again.

Is that mean the ivory one sounds no such good compared with the original black one?

The headband is a single piece of brushed stainless steel. The headband is weathered British leather. The earpads are full size, soft, supple English leather with breathable interior.


The housing of the earcup is made from a form of plastic but it has an almost pearlescent finish and is very strong and well bonded.



I'm liking the constant references to 'BRITISH/ENGLISH leather'.... wherever I am in Germany I can rest easy knowing I've got a British cows sheep's backside pressed up against my ears... cue 'Jupiter' from The Planets by Holst.

I always think that this ear cup is made by metal!

There is certainly a noticeable difference in sound quality between the original black brown (over-ear) Momentum, and the new ivory (on-ear) model.

I found the mid-bass to be too pronounced and slightly bloated. Also I felt the resolution was slightly lacking, but only in comparison to the original.

At it's price-point, it's still OK. You can do better for sound for the money, but not necessarily combined with good looks and decent portability. 

 

If you plan to take them out into very noisy environments, the ivory one might actually be better, as they have a bigger bass presentation, which is needed when surrounded by noise as our perception of bass is the first thing to disappear on a busy street or aeroplane.
