PRESS RELEASE: Sennheiser announces the MOMENTUM On-Ear headphone - Page 7

post #91 of 109

I was wondering if the removable cable is also 2.5mm like the original Momentum. The one I have is driving me crazy (non-mic) at work everytime I step on the cable with the desk edge or even with my arm the sound suddenly stop.

These will be my new commute headphone along with my Fiio 11 or JDS C5.

We got these in today, and I have to say I was a bit disappointed by their sound. The fit and finish is amazing though, so I may get them anyway...

The sound is dark and I'd say very old school Sennheiser: sligthly veiled and dark. They are much bassier than the original momentum, to my surprise. The mids are a bit subdued, making them sound v-shaped.

I think they're very good for 229$ though, I'd take them over anything on the market for their looks and build, and sound is above average in that price bracket. They're a fun sounding headphone and the bass is not messy. I'd say it's good for electronica, rock and other more upbeat genres.

i need a portable headphone for work, hows the bass on these? im thinking of buying these since i don't really wanna rebuy IEMs. 

 

does it have the typical entry level sennheiser bass roll-off? or the models that start to distort in the bass pretty easily

The bass is pretty tight, there's just a lot of quantity and I eq'ed it a bit down (havent eq'd a headphone in years, but the results are good in this case).

I just finished work and decided to pick up my own pair. I'd demo before buying it.

I've had these for a couple of days and think they sound good for their small size. I found their overall sound is fairly well balanced and neutral, although slightly veiled. Bass is decent but doesn't extend that well into the sub-bass region, which is a shame. Bass distortion was evident when auditioning a reggae track called "Stone Majesty - Mother Earth (Earth Riddim)". I also found they struggle for power and volume when un-amped and connected directly to my Galaxy S3. Furthermore, they don't provide the best isolation and leak at high volume, but they're one of the most comfortable on-ear type headphone I've tried.

Got two momentums this week!

post #98 of 109

these are indeed quite bassy.

For accoustic music it's too much. Even for some electronic music it's too much for me.

With bass settings -4db or -6db on the fiio e17 it's fine though.

Thanks for the detailed photo.  Is the blue as dark as it appears in this particular pic?  If so, it looks as though someone put the Amperior's cobalt blue through the Inoffensitron so that people could actually wear it in public without feeling shiny.

Listened to the Momentum on ears earlier today, spent alot of time with them along side the original momentums and the ESW9.

Definitely more bass and bloated at that, more aggressive treble and the mids thin. It's like they took the momentums and uped the ante. Not sure if they took the right direction though.

Comfort wise it's very comfortable and not an issue though with my small ears, the original momentums fit me better.

Just posted up a first impressions video I did with some friends :)

 

There is now an impressions thread for the On-Ears so I posted in there:

Sorry, I got an on ear and a regular momentum. Those blue ones are a limited edition regular momentum.

Apparently you still can get them, but only UK shipping.

Unless the pictures are misleading, that particular LE looks to include the standard black and red momentums despite the extras' emphasis on blue and bowie.

That's the special blue edition, I don't know if there's another se/le version.
