Could burn in possibly fix this, I've only had it for three days, used it for about 6 hours total.

 

Another possibility I'm looking at, is that this is my first true on ear, coming from the hd439 and fc300 which are more over ear, I noticed having less isolation than those two so maybe I'm turning up the volume more trying to block out the environment noise

 

No, you should never turn up the volume to drown out ambient noise.  If you needed isolation, Momentum On-Ear is not for you.

So you don't have to turn up the volume as much in a quiet environment?

 

Burn-in is never a solution for things like lack of sensitivity, channel imbalance, etc.

Alright playing these through my laptop with the volume at 25 and they sound fine, I can talk to someone and hear them quite ok

Yeah I can play these at a low volume in a quiet place, Your right about these maybe not being for me as I'm currently switching back and forth between these the Onkyos and favor the Onkyos a great deal.

 

Really want to love these headphones but it was supposed to replace the Onkyos and sound-wise, seems like that won't happen

Well, I must say I'm very happy with the Momentum On-Ears, especially at the price I snagged em for. These are exactly what I was looking for in a portable, both signature wise and comfort wise...

 

These are keepers! :beerchug:

I have mine for sale but I may be just keeping them regardless of having to many headphones. They actually get more comfortable over time and I quite enjoy their signature as well. I am getting a pair of SRH1540 which is why I am trying to clear out other headphones but these may just have to stay.

I am hoping the 1540 will be my "fun" detailed spacious sounding headphone.

Notice I have one, myself...

 

You won't be disappointed! :beerchug:

Awesome news, we seem to be chasing each other in regards to headphone selection so I am even more looking forward to the 1540 as we appear to enjoy the same types of signatures.

I've actually had the 1540 since day one (about 6 months, now), and it has turned into my favorite headphone. Looks like I'll be seeing you in the 1540 appreciation thread!

 

And, yes, I have grown to love that signature that leaves one with a smile! 

 

:bigsmile_face: !The Momentum On-Ear does exactly that! :bigsmile_face:

Does it show somewhere on this post where to get a cable that improves on the sound of the MOE?

Not that I don't like the cans...I love them - in fact :bigsmile_face:

but...you never know......

 

Thanks!

FiiO HD598 cable or there's a couple of sellers on fleaBay that sell replacement cables for Momentum.

post #268 of 395

That FiiO HD598 cable looks too thick and heavy, which might kill portability...

Change. Can you order a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter from Amazon or something and see if the Boom Pro works for it?
