Glad it's gone to a good home and glad you enjoy it more than I do. I think I need to get that UHA 6S MkII with that OpAmp.

 

Did some Ninjas got into your home? ph34r.gif

 

Hahaha. I seems to be unknowingly collecting portable headphones for some reason. I have the ESW10JPN now and also the ESW11LTD incoming. Heard the Momentum and I know I have to get it as well. They are not the last word in SQ and certainly custom iem and full size headphones can overtake them in SQ when used in a proper setup. Yet, they are value for money and are convenient to use.

 

I am looking at the Centrance M8 and Apex Glacier as well. Have you heard them?

Slight OT- Time to try Momentums from Amazon. I bought stuff there many times but i don't remember when was the last time i returned something. How's their return policy nowadays? Do they charge for return shipping for headphones? I know they don't on TV's.

Why not just buy them at a store?

Can anyone compare these to the SRH840, SQ-wise and isolation-wise?

im looking to get a 2nd backup headphone for my portable use.. currently using 1964 Triple CIEM

Needs to be somewhat neutral sounding.. Not too bassy but needs to be heard, mid range needs to be upfront etc etc.
Music type varies, I listen to alot of Indie, Indie rock, shoegaze, dreampop, synthpop, Post rock,rock, punk, psychedelic,experimental, alternative, trap, electronic and a little of pop, hiphop. No jazz, country for me.

headphones i have in mind are DT1350,
Sennheiser Momentum
UE 9000
SHure 940

Their return policy is second to none IMO. They will deduct return shipping charges from your refund unless there's something wrong with the item or with your order. You also have the option of paying for return shipping yourself. I'd imagine it would only run $5-$6 to return the Momentum if you don't like them. I'd say that's a pretty cheap price to pay for the luxury of auditioning a new headphone for 30 days.

Anyone found any ways to make this comfy for people with big ears?

 

There is literally no way these are over ears, a baby's ears could fit in there but otherwise. The leather rests on the sides of my ears and it's annoying and uncomfy.

What an insult to the size of my ears! evil_smiley.gif

 

You may want to try tucking in the cup from the back of your ears before closing in from the front?

There are some measurements up at headroom. 

 

http://www.headphone.com/headphones/sennheiser-momentum.php

 

Bass response looks to be pretty darn flat and extended and the 50 Hz square wave is pretty impressive (look at the LCD3 one for comparison.). But I was surprised to see just how depressed the upper mids/ treble response is. I didn't think it sounded quite this dark but there ya go. 

 

That leading edge of the 500 Hz square wave looks pretty slowish. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Figure it'd be useful to compare against the amperior

 

 

 

I look forward to the innerfidelity measurements with more THD and impulse charts

 

 

edit: my ears are not big but they can't even come close to fitting inside the cups. those cups are tiny. And I've had a few people put them on their heads and they can't fit their ears inside either. from my POV, it's absolutely an on-ear headphone. (I fear the bass on these would be booming if I had them fit around my ears, pressing the driver closer against the ear canal)

Do this break in at all over the weeks (refering to the ear pads.)

post #596 of 3347
i wonder if those high frequency charts are correct ? Maybe retest? Sounds bright to me.

i noticed that the Momentum has a similar but more smooth curve than the HD202, (also excellent bass)

Noise Isolation similar in some ways to the AKG K550:

Do people eventually get used to the fact that your ears are touching the sides and get bent a little? Because it's bothering me. Seriousley couldn't have made it .5-.75 of an inch bigger?

Sure, return it and get the HD600 instead. Your ears will fit in nicely. Probably the same price and sounds much better to boot.
