I wonder if there are any channel imbalances (if the refurb are replacement of one driver).

Did any of you pick that Momentum sold by VMInnovations on Amazon.com new for $199 last week? Mine arrived in a bag, smashed packaging and were refurbs. VMInnovation is paying to ship them back but what a crappy experience.

Really? Wow. Didn't think they would be like that.

Are they going to ship you new ones?

For interested Canadian's I was in a local London Drugs and they had the Marshal Major on sale for $69. Not sure if they have them listed on their website at that price but they did not have a Manager's special sticker so they may be an unadvertised national sale.

 

In regards to their sound. I had a quick listen to a pair they had on the wall before grabbing them. I remember trying this same headphone in the past and not being that impressed but they sounded very nice today. When I got the pair I bought I noticed they were not quite as full sounding and were not as detailed so I suspect they will need burnin to sound their best.

 

Also note in my store the demo model had a leather headband but the pair I bought actually has a cloth headband. The picture in the box actually showed the cloth headband but I missed that before buying. So if you want leather you might be out of luck (or check that picture on the bottom and you might get lucky. I bought black but they also have a white version for those interested.

 

At their regular retail I am not sure these are worth the price, but at $70 I think they offer a an excellent value.

 

Signature is a slightly warm midrange centric sound. These do not isolate a ton but at the same time didn't seem bothered by the wind outside. So if you want less isolation these are a good choice. Finally the pair in the store did not clamp to much but my bought pair has slightly stronger clamp than I like. So I suspect these may need to be stretched over a box slightly larger than your head while burning them in to speed up the comfortable feeling a bit. Having said that the clamp was not unbearable so if you want to just use them without burning them in you will likely be fine.

I live about 45 mins from London :), decent deal but I wont be picking them up

Thanks for finding the link :-)

 

Not going to be everyones cup of tea. Heck I might even return mine if I decide I don't like them after a couple of days of burnin. But if you like a mid-centric sound they are not bad.

No. They offered like $25 in return or to pay for shipping back. So they handled it fine, but imo $175 w/ a 90 day warranty and damaged box is not worth it.
