My ears are average as well I guess. Are there different size pads available like with the V-MODA M-100s?

Any other recommendations for Sennheiser closed back headphones? Portability would be nice, but not a deal breaker.

No alternative earpads are available, as far as I know.

They do sound very good for a portable headphone, though, and the build is very nice indeed. They feel premium. I really want to keep them ...

For portable headphones (ie 18ohm impedence), I dont think anything comes close to the Amperiors...though they aren't comfortable...

I tried the Amperior myself last year, and while i liked the agressive, detailed sound & punchy bass, there was no soundstage at all (far less than my Grados) and the clamp pressure was way too much for me to wear them for more than about 20 mins.

The fit can be an issue for some people, so I recommend to try them before you buy them. I don't try to tug my ears inside the cans completely, I just put upper part of my ears inside and leave the lower part out, so that the Momentums rest on top them. Sorry for the confusing explanation, hope you can get the idea. :D

When you're listening to music, the isolation is fine. I have used the Momentums on a plane and didn't hear any ambient noices.

Do you guys think that $220 for a refurb pair from an ebay vendor is a good option or no. I was in at $220 but ebay vendor and them being refurbs hurt resale if you ask me. And since no local best buy of min has them in stock I can't try the fit and so I might end up having to resell them on here. So between fit and sound sig I'm not sure I won't end up reselling on here.

 

You think price and refurb matters a lot? Over the ear versions not on ear but I guess that's obvious.

you'll probably be alright buying a refurbished pair, unless the drivers are damaged or the headphones structural integrity is somehow messed up it'll be the same as a new pair (minus the burn in). 

 

A pair for $220 would be a steal for the over ears models.

I think the Momentum will be wonderful for you. But if you don't like them, you can always return them. Hold onto your receipt.

They are my favorite portable headphones.

They are very comfortable, assuming your ears can fit in the pads. Clamp pressure is much lighter than the HD25-II. The headband is steel and i think it can be bent to adjust the clamp too.

 

Sound is quite different - more relaxed and 'thicker' sounding. They have a much better soundstage.

Thnx for detailed info. How about amping them?

I use hybrid tube amp for HD25-II, and they sound really nice on it.

Do momentum requires amp, if not, is there and difference amping them?

post #357 of 529

They don't require an amp, no.

Can't decide which color to get... :<

post #359 of 529

Black and red look to much like Beat wannabe's so I went brown. They are real nice brown and golden color.

Just ordered these cans. Can't wait to get them in.
