I recently auditioned a set of these at a local JB Hifi and bought them on the spot. They're everything I've ever wanted in a portable and more.

 

The old HD-25 1-II is getting donated to the girlfriend for christmas, and I'm selling my Audeze LCD-2. Not because the Momentum is better than the latter, but because it gets close enough that I no longer need to maintain an expensive home rig that I seldom use anymore.

JB Hifi stock the Momentum?

Great video, thank for sharing, I have decided to order a pair of Momentums as well .
post #802 of 3002
Thanks mate and you'll like them? Why? Bceause they have such a relaxing and forgiving signature they couldn't harm no one wink.gif well I hope you like them, I do. Although so far I do wish the mids have a bit more character and presence. Bass has been very nice, warm and bounce with good extension and treble is smooth and relaxed with good presence. One of the best sounding portables for sure, that I have heard.

Physically beautiful and so comfortable as well.

Yep, and they were on "sale" for $399 the other day. The Pitt St Westfields store in Sydney CBD even let me audition a pair before I bought them.

I was in the Apple Store in London and was pleased to see the Amperiors and Momentums on display. Funniest thing though, I saw a middl aged man trying on a pair of the cheaper Beats...in bright purple and he looked so funny with them, I shook my head at him and invited him to try the Senn's...he walked out with a pair of Amperiors in the end....smily_headphones1.gif

I just bought my sennheiser momentum yeeterday from Jaben
Out the box direct to my iPhone 4 S and Galsxy note 2 sound quality very good .
The best ultra portable set up for momentum are :
iPhone 4S + arrow 4 G and
iPod classic 7G + pico dac amp,
Sound so sweet and smooth and detail ,like baby HD 650 with more clarity and detail .
Bravo Sennsy your momentum is so sexy biggrin.gif

Glad to hear you like it! I love mine and got it from razor dog deals as soon as it was released. I'm new to all this high end hp stuff, but have been thinking about getting a portable amp for my momentums. I've been leaning toward the fiio amp/dac (seems popular around here), but you would recommend pico offerings over anything from fiio? I listen to ALAC through iPod classic 80GB. Thanks for any help.

Is excellent

These actually sound rather nice straight from a iPod or iPhone. If you was going to get an amp then yes the Pico would be a lot better than the Fiio but also more expensive. The Pico Slim i have not tried with the momentum but i can see a good synergy between the two as Pico Slim is rather neutral, extremely transparent and slightly bright which will overall help the momemtnum and not hind its laid back treble!
