That would help the community a great deal, like im all for buying for authorized sellers but if u can get it cheaper why not right ( obviously if u see it for like 100$ theres a problem)

Mine are up on the bay wasn't impressed at all compared to my goldring ns1000 they have slightly more detail but that's about it very similar sounding actually and the ns1000 cost £50-£60 not £260.

 

They have a nice crisp warm mid rangy punchy sound with plenty of details reminds me of my ie6 under comply tips as well, but the ns1000 does all that too.

 

Think i'll buy me some phillips fidelio x1 next, mometums are good but just aren't worth the price tag they should be around £100-£130 not £260 that's just mental.

The main difference between the Brown and the Black version is that the Black version also has a QR code on the side for verifying authenticity by going to this link and entering in the information here:

There is also a video showcasing it here:

Here is the pictures of their boxes.

Anybody know a good replacement cord for the momentums that's not expensive?

I came across this one which was posted a while back and thinking of getting it.

Looking for a thick cord. The stock momentum are pretty thin. Just want a back up in case they get destroyed.

I'm interested in a replacement cable,too.

Have anyone tried a replacement cable that improves the sound quality of Momentum?

Yes I have that same replacement cable. You have to however screw in the cable or lock it in a certain position for both channels to play as the design is a TRS and not a TRRS as on the stock cable for the 2.5mm connector. It is somewhat stiffer than the stock cable but is also thicker about 2-3x more.

 

I also have the Silver Replacement cable from that same seller and that one seems to be the same in quality as well.

Is there a replacement TRSS cable for the headphones or is it possible to buy a TRSS adapter that can lock into the sennheiser momentum jack?

Either way I'm going to get that cable then. Thanks for the input. I just have to try it out myself and see.

I just bought a new momentum over-ear. Sounds nice, and I also got an on-ear Momentum last year which I found really not sound nice. But after I detach the ear pad of both, I amazingly find that the speakers are the same size! But how the sound differs so a lot?

Alcantara and Leather have different acoustic properties from what I believe.

But have you heard both yet? The soundstage and the sound quality really differs a lot. I just think after you replace your leather pad with alcantata, the sound won't change a lot.

The actual 'speakers' (drivers) might be the same size, but have different specification.
Many AKGs drivers from the 70s and 80s look almost indentical, but sound different.

All Grado drivers also look almost identical, but sound different too.

 

So don't worry too much about stuff like that. You can't see the quality of the voice coil, how many coils there are in the coil, etc... which all change the specification and sound of a driver.

I thought the clarity was amazing and only really had problems with my ears getting hot. The padding on the headband could also have a larger contact area and the impressions they leave on your head bothered me but man was I having fun smily_headphones1.gif

I've tried the momentum and found them too mellow when listening to music, never tried them for gaming tho.

Is sibilance normal in these headphones? I got used to their dark sound signature and I think it's quite good (makes music sound more pleasant than fun/energetic), but this one thing is very annoying for me. Every "s" sounds like it's capitalized and extended. I'm not experienced audiophile, but I've never heard anything like that in any other headphones I had (mostly cheap ones). Should that go away with more burn-in?

post #2969 of 3347

Maybe it's the song/recording?
Or does it happen with all your music?

post #2970 of 3347

Well, I listen mostly to electronic music where vocals are either non-existent or doesn't matter much, but I have started listening to some more vocal music lately and noticed it more, and I think it's apparent in almost every recording or video.
