Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review - Page 6

post #76 of 3002

Argh seriously this has made things very difficult for me. I have just listened to the Amperiors for an hour in the Apple store and I have fallen in love with them but the Momentum also ticks every box for me. I've had V-Moda's (Namely the Crossfades), and I understand that V-Moda have gone down the Audiophile route but I want something new so I don't really want to get the M-100s, The new MDR-1Rs seem quite nice however Sony haven't really made anything groundbreaking that have stood out to me. I will use the headphones for commuting lots and although both the Momentums and the Amperiors are very easy to drive, I still believe they would benefit largely from an amp which I already own (Fiio E7). There's also one more thing... I'm off on a trip to Singapore on 18th October and that limits me to what headphones will be out at the time. I'm sure the Momentums will roll into the UK Apple Stores very soon so it's back to square one really.... Amperior or Momentum?

I was wondering if these sound like the IE8/IE80. Sounds like they could be similar...

rofl I have beats pro and I tried the M80's and they had equal amount of bass but since jude said that the bass is stronger than the M80 as far as I know, I think this might satisfy me

Am I the only one who thinks the Amperior have no sex appeal? Call me superficial but I care about what the ladies may think of me walking the streets of San Francisco.

Thanks for the great review Jude. These look like the go to headphone for road warriors looking for some luxurious cans to relax with!

See my first impressions with the Momentums here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/625216/sennheiser-gains-new-momentum/315#post_8706784

What's interesting is that everyone now seems to understand this idea. 

 

 

I learned this lesson the hard way.  While I abhor using EQ for my home rig, I've learned to use bass boost judiciously with my portable setup.

 

2 MORE DAYS!!!!  I haven't been this excited for a pair of cans since getting my HD650s.

Hello everyone,

 

I'm getting worried that Apple might not carry the Momentum heaphones. I called their customer support in oder to find out and no one seemed to know what the hell I ws talking about. Sennheiser what? Momentus? How do you spell that?

 

I'm heartbroken. I have an Apple online store credit but so far I can't even purchase the "momentus" headphones because they aren't being sold in the Apple online store. What do you guys think?

Give it a few more days, maybe another week or two. The headphones were just released and the only place I've even heard of people getting them so far has been RazorDog Deals. 

 

Worst case, you use the credit to buy something else, sell whatever that something else is, and then use the cash to buy a pair of these Senns.

I wouldn't sweat it yet. Apple is notorious for not talking about products until they are announced (if it's their product) or physically on the shelf. If they are getting them, It could be that they will stock them shortly but are reluctant to say so (or the guy you spoke to just doesn't know).

sorry to ask but can someone here compare the momentum to the harman kardon bt?

post #87 of 3002

Thanks a lot for the reassurance. Hopefully you're both right. If anyone else knows something, lease let me know, it would make my day : )

 

Thanks again.

I spoke face to face with Brian from RazorDog Deals today and he told me Apple would be selling them very soon, within two to three weeks I believe. Same with Best Buy.

+1- Apple said the same thing about Amperior then it all of a sudden appeared on their website a few days later.
