One review said there were connection problems at the earcup end when trying to use something other than the supplied B&O cable.  

 

Can I ask you, why would you want to replace the cable and where did you see that review? I was thinking about replacing it myself, those buttons are useless for me.

Both connectors of the cable look very much alike, also I just tried to connect it the other way around and it worked fine. Surely they must be identical and there should be no problem replacing the cable?

I can tell you the cable from the MDR-1RNC didn't work. The way it goes in it doesn't catch. In the time I was testing it in the store, it's like the plastic piece needs to be a bit longer or something. The ends may be a standard cable but finding one that fits the place it needs to go is the problem.

Aha, I see now. I tried to plug some other headphone cable into the can socket and it wouldnt go fully. It needs a special end indeed.

The length of this cable is pathetic.  its as if they designed it for use only with a smart phone or Ipod.

They better get their heads together and offer a longer cable without the mic and buttons.  Oh, that ONLY work for an apple product.

Smart move leaving Android users in the dust B&O!

I'm currently in a struggle to find an extravagant headphone. All my headphones are low quality and have been broken due to long duration of use and mishaps. My type of music range from indie rock, classic rock, jazz, classical music, dub step, and house. I was debating to buy the h6 or the momentum as a result of numerous hours of research. I've eventually narrowed down to these two choices; however, I do not know which one matches my genre in music. I decided to consult you because you are the only one that talk about the sound, the style, and the price of headphones. I'm willing to spend under 500 for an amazing headphone that matches my music genre and is compatible on my Toshiba laptop and Samsung Galaxy S3I've read from somewhere that both the h6 and momentum are produced specifically for iDevices and that the momentum's volume control module on the wire is only efficient on iDevices. Is this true? Is there another headphone you would otherwise advise me to buy?

The Momentum comes with a non-remote cable as well, and works fine with other devices.

The Sennheiser Momentum has more pronounced bass (when paired with a smartphone), but the bass is less precise than that of the H6. You may also want to check out the KEF M500.

I've read that the h6 is more neutral and centric and bass can't hit high but it is warmer and smoother.

I've read that the h6 is more neutral and centric and bass can't hit high but it is warmer and smoother. In addition I believe the kef m500 to be not as good b.c of the insulation for the ear. It doesn't surround the ear so sound will seep out to the surroundings.
