Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Impressions - Page 10

post #136 of 426

it's not like you are going to listen classical music and then somehow dance track is gonna blast from nowhere.

listening to classical music is basically gonna be close to like listening to orchestra live. not better.

post #137 of 426

I am often listening to my ipod/itunes on random so it's actually quite common for a classical orchestra to play following a techno song

post #138 of 426

these are perfect for that I say.. the volume doesn't go too high on mobile devices but that's it..

post #139 of 426

yeah.. volume is low on mobiles...

 

does amping increase the volume.. to anyone..??

post #140 of 426

my friend said these sound like crap.. not worth of the money.. he said hd 419 sounds better..

 

i'm using samsung galaxy s2 and ipod shuffle

 

sounds nice for me.. i'm loving the lows...

 

can anyone tell the difference between these cans..??

I think they need a small amount of amping but not too much. Desktop amps made them too tinny and nasal sounding. The International from ALO Audio was a good match as also the little known Miniwatt N4 usb powered DAC/Amp. Straight out of mobile phones leave them sounding thin and lacking in any bite for me personally.

I don't know why , but mines is just alright, even using sony player(bass boosted) it didn't have the problem of overpower bass on those pair, i do agree some of the comment , agressive, treble rolled off compare to momentum , a bit v shape, but iy is relatively balance compare to many other hp i have, hd25 do have good bass with, amp .on ear actually have less bass compare to amped hd25, but on ear seems a bit faster response
post #143 of 426
If i am playing with ipv , it more balance bit still a little more bass than momentum

IBasso DX50... Most of the early FW bugs now sorted. Has a decent amp and DAC. Pairs nicely with on-ears. Close to A&K AK100 sound, third of the price.

Personally, i really like the MOE's. The circumaural Momentum's suffer from really poor seal and loss of bass response because of the sliding mechanism. I found i had to slide them slightly further down so that the top inside edge of the cups were just touching the tops of my ears. That way, i could recover some of the bass and get a better seal around the lower half of my ear but were extremely painful after about 45 minutes (and i don't even have a big noggin).

Also, I couldn't angle the Momentums in the x-axis plane like i could with the MOE. I can't remember too well as i sold them on pretty soon after buying, but i think the full sized ones were rigid in the x-axis, whereas the MOE can be angled so that there is even pressure on my ears back and front. I am sure someone can correct me if i am wrong on this, but i don't remember there being horizontal adjustment on the ear cups of the original Momentum's to enable them to tilt.

Compared to my Amperiors, the MOE's fared pretty well. The signature is similar which is why i like them. The Amperior has a bit more sparkle to them and better bass resolution. The MOE's are far more laid back but not so laid back that it becomes muddy, like i found with the B&W P5's. I also found the soundstage surprisingly good for the MOE's although maybe not as good as its full sized sibling... but better than the Amperior.

I was really looking for a commuting set and thought the v-moda m-80's would do the job. However, unlike a lot of reviews that i read, i found that the M-80's leaked like buggery. It was very noticeable on the London tube and when the wind was blowing you could hear draft coming through the V-Ports (it gets pretty windy in the UK!). Maybe it was just my pair which was defective... Maybe some others on here can shed some light on whether they experienced the same thing. The M-80's also sounded positively anaemic compared to the MOE's. M-80's have lovely mid resolution but it is the kind of signature which can only be appreciated in silence and sitting still for the detail and SQ to shine through. I guess my lifestyle is more on the go and a bit of a basshead, i suppose! Guilty as charged.

Anyway, i found the MOE's to be great for out and about. Enough isolation and bass/sparkle to allow me to enjoy my music but not isolate me so much that i wouldn't be able to hear what is going on around me. They also look great (up there with the M-80 and P5's), the sliders are firm and won't lose position and are light/small enough around the neck so as to not hinder movement.

ibasso dx50 is not available in india

 

fiio x3 is available... any comments on these..??

post #149 of 426

The X3 is a very competent player. I have not had the pleasure of trying a DX50, but the X3 measures extremely well and, with my Sennheiser Momentum ON-ear and HD518, it sounds very good. It simply brings a smile to my face every time I listen to Yes or Sade. Or Pink Floyd, or Stevie Ray.

I will not, however, start to personify its sound. Try it for yourself with your headphones and a microSD with your music. If it sounds good the first time you hear it, buy it. It will continue to be just as good and even better, once you get really used to it.
