thanks for the information, something to think about. I need to plan this right so I get the best return possible...thanks

Soo. I picked up a pair from Best Buy a few days ago in order so that I could easily return them if they didn't fit.  I have been letting them play on an 800+ .flac playlist non stop since I first plugged them in on Thursday morning, but until now I had only been able to momentarily jump in to listen before having to leave for work each day.  First impressions kick.  Bass.  Natural mids.  Detail.  Im still evaluating imaging, but im happy so far.  I was pretty weary with so much mention of size being an issue and indeed my ears are huge; 3 1/8" (thanks pawpaw); 79 mm for you metric folks.  I'm very glad to find comfort is not an issue.  I have the headband adjusted almost all the way out, there is probably 3/8" left in adjustment.  I personally believe the issues people have been experiencing could be related to needing to find the appropriate band adjustment, though with that being said I would also note that not all ears are built the same.. some people have attached or webbed earlobes, of which I do not have..

I spoke to Sennheiser UK regarding them making replacement earpads that are slightly bigger, it's been fed back to Germany and I quoted many of the posts on Head-Fi. Personally I'd be happy to pay a few £'s to get them. What do you all think? I know it might alter the sound signature, but for those of us suffering with the size, it might make a big difference in comfort.

I vote yes:) And also if they could give more to choose from, like velour pads for better comfort :P

I'll point them to this thread, let's see if others agree.

Only reason I didn't keep my pair was pad irritation on my left ear. Loved them other than that. Color me interested at least.

I swapped pads left/right, and it helped - ears are also different sizes:D

Hadn't thought of that, good call. I'm not sure it would've helped in my case though-- my left ear is a bit cauliflowered from years of sports, which is why I think my right ear never ran into trouble.

Can someone do me a huge favor and measure the inside of their Momentum earpads? I want to see if these will be a over or on ear for me.

Cool. Sennheiser released Momentum On-Ear headphones in four colors (the fourth color is green).

To me, it looks like Sennheiser has lost its mind. And is color blind. Yuck. But to each their own.

The cream colored ones look fabulous though :)

Has anyone confirmed these are on ears? 

post #149 of 613
Yes definitely on ears, they're much smaller than the originals.

Wow... Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, but those look pretty awful IMO.
