Music is one of the few things that keeps me going, it helps me forget about the various problems I encounter each day and makes them seem that much more insignificant. Music has always caught my attention from jazz, classical, rock, electronic, hip hop and everything in between but i never really paid much attention to the fine details within each song. That all changed when my mom gave me the Sennheiser HD598 for Christmas in 2011. I was immediately blown away by how much more engaging music can be with a pair of awesome headphones and I haven't had a problem with them ever since. I was recently looking for a portable pair of headphones I can use for walking or on the train to make my journey that much more enjoyable. I was looking for something stylish and great sounding. My search brought me to the Sennheiser momentum and it fits my requirements very well! Today I noticed the giveaway and thought to myself " maybe, just maybe..." I don't know if I do in fact deserve these headphones as there's always someone more deserving but if I do win a pair, I'll love Sennheiser and head-fi even more! Thanks!!!

Walking around My highschool, about 90% of headphone users own Beats by dre. and another 5 percent use skullcandy. Now what they have done is remarkable. Beats by dre almost has a monopoly in headphone sales for young teens. I would use a pair of sennheiser momentums to show that you can truly do better for less. By that I mean that i could Show that if you have a genuinely good headphone with accurate lows mids and highs, that it can sound even more engaging than the overbloated bass found in common cans. Using my hifimans I have switched alot of people at my school to superior quality headphones. I would use the elegant Momentums as a conversation piece walking around school hopefully promoting that superior headphones leads to superior listening experiences. Having hifimans now i have "shown the light" to a few members at school. 2 of my colleges bought hd 650 and q701 off of my request. I try to find superior headphones at any budget for anyone looking. Using these momentums as the conversation starter would be more than beneficial.

Hi Rosmadi


Can I ask why virtually all of the Sennheiser promotions / competitions you run on Head-Fi always seem to be US residents only?


It's your call - but as a Sennheiser supporter outside of USA - it peeves me a little that we don't count.  I currently own the HD600 and am saving for the HD800.  In the past I've owned some cheaper Senn products as well (eH250 + some CX IEMs).


With my current HD600 - even when one of the drivers finally failed (it's at least 7-8 years old - so I have no complaints) - I've ordered replacements off our local Sennheiser dealer.


We (world-wide) support you.  Why do you not reciprocate?


Just curious.

Share the same opinion as you. And would be no problem in the winners to support the shipping fees...

Music Is My Drug


Some take pills, some smoke weed

But a momentum on ear is what I need

To soothe my mind, to calm my soul

To heal my spirit, to make me whole


Music is my medicine,

The momentum on ear is the ultimate syringe

To deliver me a hit of melody

In the power of high fidelity

As an adult living in a world of "Beats.." it would be nice to have another pair of quality cans. To turn the heads of the kids and have them try out a good pair of headphones, not the typical bass-laden ones worn for show not sonic quality.
