Thx alot for takring the pictures. Comfort was my main concern with the beacause they are kinda small. Thx for the info. Probably still going to buy them

Welcome. I think you will not regret it. They sound extremely good and I start to like their size a lot.

 

Cheers,

Nice SQ but bad comfort for my big ears so never bought them. 5xx Senns are more to my liking due to great comfort and also more pronounced mids on 558 and 598.

The problem with those is that they're open back. i'm looking for closed-back (portable) headphones. Thx for the advice anyway.

Wasn't giving advice, just my opinion.

Just bought a pair of Momentum On Ear (black) this saturday and I'm very satisfied with the S.Q.

Amazing bass response compared to my Denon AH1001, and greater detail.

Just bought the ivory momentum's. I love them, they sound better then the amperiors I had. biggrin.gif

I love my Momentums. Everything about them. I actually managed to damage them, somehow. The left channel is out, and I'm not sure what to do about it. Any ideas?

I've bought Meridian Explorer today and they sound absolutely amazing with Sennheiser Momentums.

I have tried the over ear version in the past, and thought it was amazing sounding, I almost bought it when they first came out, but decided to go with the Hifiman HE-400 instead.  Yesterday while out on errands, I saw a pair of the on-ear that you could try at best buy, and figured I'd give it a listen.  MAN...  that thing had no bass.  Zero!  I'd imagine it was a highly abused pair that in no way was indicative of how they actually sound, but it was a sad thing to hear.  With prices on used pairs of over ears coming down quite a bit, I'm pretty sure I'd never go the on ear route unless I just really had to have a specific color which wasn't available in on ear.

It's a shame what kind of abused headphones are on display. The momentum on ear have lovely bass and certainly not too less, so yep, yours must have been dodgy.

No, but I have this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H7UNVUM/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

which looks pretty similar. I don't have the feeling it upgraded the sound, pretty much the same as before to be honest - but the cable is much sturdier and resilient, I like using this cable much more than the stock cable as I have the feeling it can take much more abuse. Love the metal connectors.

 

Cheers,

K

Thank you very much for the answer.

 

It's definitely the same cable. I wasn't expecting a sound upgrade to be honest as this a feature of products of a completely different price tag.

 

Perhaps I should give this a try.

 

Thanks again.

The HD 25-Ii cable works with the HD 600/650
