Fake Sennheiser Momentums?

post #1 of 154
Thread Starter 
I bought a pair of momentums on eBay for 209.5 and I'm having my doubts whether these headphones I got are authentic or fake. One thing is that the wires that connect the ear cups to the headband are black instead of red. I believe they might be a Chinese counterfeit.

It does look a lot better in black IMO.  
Hope you could return them.

Yeah I believe the headband and earpads are made out of leather but the cable jack for the smart remote doesn't the that input hinge and it doesn't lock when I twist it into the headphones

First: do you have an iphone? the controls wont work on android, only the central button in some cases. About the locking mechanism I have no clue. I see that some sellers are from hong kong, from who/where did you get them? The stainless steel headband and leather cups will be expensive to produce and chinese usually save in those areas when copying headphones.

Well, a cursory search shows that there are definitely fake Momentums floating around.  I guess the real question is how well do they sound?

I have an android phone but the remote works. What just makes me doubt the authenticity of these cans is the design. I can't find a black momentum model with black wires.

I mean they sound alright but idk...

Is the edge of the headband (below the earcups) sharp enough to cut your finger? If so they are genuine. An experience I never will forget!

They're pretty sharp but not to make my fingers cut and bleed. This is my primary concern though.
Shouldn't the wire be red and not black?
Also the smart remote is only fixed straight instead of being able to fix it at a 90 degree angle

The wires are black and NOT red.

Also the remote wire you're holding should be black and the headphone jack should be having a moving mechanism

Yeah I know the remote should have a moving mechanism. I'm also aware that the brown over ear momentums have a black wire but the black momentums have a Red one though.

Wait a minute.....You have brown or black momentums?

 

The pics sure looks like brown.

They're black. :/ that's what me made skeptical about these headphones

Anyways whatever the color of the cable, the moving mechanism should be there on the in-line remote cable.

 

I suspect the headphones are genuine but the cables were switched,

Yeah I know that but I'm talking about the wire that connects the ear cups to the headband. It's black instead of red like it's suppose to be.
