PRESS RELEASE: Sennheiser announces the MOMENTUM On-Ear headphone - Page 2

post #16 of 109

I think for most people with medium-to-large sized ears, the existing Momentums ARE on-ears! LOL. Twas the only reason I traded mine away. 

 

Subscribed.

I couldn't get the regular momentums to fit/seal on me properly. I wonder if these will fare any better.

I've got huge head and above average ears and to me the Momentums are somewhere inbetween circumaural and over-ear. They fit very nicely around my ears but there's no way the ears could totally go inside. One of my favorite headphones.

No kidding. Why the hell didn't they come up with an actual around-ear Momentum instead confused_face_2.gif

If it has same signature as momentum with less emphasize in bass I think it will be good

For those quite a few have voiced out the inner space ear pad of Momentum original version too small to fit in, I'm afraid it would getting worse for the issue this time, For me, the Momentum original version just fits me with no problem and I'd also looking forward to see the new model, both the look and the SOUND as well.

These seem interesting. Tried a pair of momentums before and thought they sounded quite good and they had excellent build quality but the price was too steep imo.

It looks like they are using the same type of ear pads used on the amperior, on these! I loved those ear pads! biggrin.gif

Also, that brown leather/cream combo looks stunning!

The leather brown and ivory do look nice. I bought my momentum s in brown just yesterday and read the news about the on ears later in the day. Timing! I love the look, sound and feel of them but did think it would be better for my ears if the ear cups were just a bit larger. So, I wrote to Sennheiser tech support and asked them if they sold a larger replacement ear pad cushion. Here's their reply, for those who are hoping for a bigger ear cup:


Good afternoon-

Thank you for contacting technical support, at this time we do not offer a a bigger option for this model, Germany is working on this an it will be probably happen early next year. please keep checking to see when they become available.

Not a big fan of the design.

I've read a lot of things about the original Momehntum but I've got to hand it to Sennheiser for trying to expand their products to the average consumer in terms of appearance. I for one am stoked about seeing their new colours in-person, let alone get a chance to listen to them. People complained about the originals being on-ear so perhaps making a real on-ear earpad design will help with the comfort. People also complained about the originals being too bulky to recommend for a portable headphone so maybe this smaller design was a response to that as well.

 

Very interesting indeed. I look forward to peoples' impressions.

They looks nice, i like the color choices. Might try those mini-Momentums when they hit retail.

Sennheiser do measure their headphones differently in respect to loudness , i cant remember exactly what they do but the result is that headphones that look like they are 102db for example , are actually around 97db. I will look for the reason
