Recently I bought new Sennheiser momentum over ear headphones after quite a long research on different forums and reviews.
The headphones are great indeed, however I am no audiophile or any expert in this area thus I'm not sure what is right and what not.
Basically these headphones were an upgrade to my IEM soundmagic e10, which I loved and still love! and frankly I couldn't even notice much of a difference between those two (guess the biggest difference was the price lol ! E10 - 35 euros, while the momentums cost me 200) .. okay the sound is a bit more clear.. :) .
Now here's a thing I noticed on the momentums, they do play really clear and accurate, however sometimes I get this irritating "sharp S sound" (don't know what's it called in the audiophile community .. I believe it has another term).
For instance in tracks like Krewella - Human or TyDi ft Sarah Howells - When I go .. it gets really frustrating. I noticed that these sharp vocals are present even when playing them on E10s, however since E10s are less accurate and a bit more bassy, the overall sound isn't as frustrating as on the momentums.
My question is, is this how these headphones actually should play and I just need to get used to it ? Is there any thing Im doing incorrectly ? Or did I get a faulty piece ? Im not using any audio boost device (Fiio or anything like that) .. I play the music on my PC with an integrated sound card (Asus maximus onboard SC) and mobile device htc one x.
Would appreciate any advise :) thanks !
