    Question about sennheiser momentum

    Perhaps OP is too used to the Beats one-note bass sound signature? The Momentum certainly doesn't deliver if what you're looking is more one-note bass.

    Question about Senheisser cables (and cables in general)

    Disclaimer: I'm firmly in the camp of cables make no difference. Scientific evidence to date suggests no audible difference from one cable to next. There's the Sound Science forums if you want to learn more about the details. If you are one who finds that a custom cable will open up the highs...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Quote: +1   Sometimes I like to annoy the hell out of my lab members and take my HD650s.  I drive them from the Total Bithead USB DAC/AMP or straight out of the Macbook Pro output. Both sound equally good and I don't even use up 3/4 of the bars on my Macbook Pro which means there is...

    Sick of buying headphones

    If you don't mind used/refurb. Add Sennheiser HD280 Pro to the list. Crazy comfortable and super durable. I've carried them in my backpack for 3 years and I don't baby my backpack. It gets sat on, thrown around, etc. Also fallen asleep at the desk with them on many times. Should be able to...

    More bass does not mean better bass!

    I think what OP was getting at is that common people judge headphone quality by the amount of bass they produce. It's a bit like judging how fast a car will be using only its horsepower rating. Things like a wide usable power band, a good tranmission, and grip contributes to a fast car around a...

    HD600 vs HD650 vs Maddogs vs DT880's for metal/rock and all-round use.

    I own both Sennheiser HD600 and HD650. If you're going to buy one of the Sennheisers for rock/metal. I'd suggest the HD650. The bass really isn't really there enough on the HD600.

    Sennheiser has only a few good cans and a lot of bad ones?

    I don't think Sennheiser has many "bad" products. They're all pretty much average for their price or better. It's just that their "good" products just make the average ones look bad. If there was one company that I'd recommend to buy a headphone from without specifying a model, it would be...

    Reply to review by 'azn1337c0d3r' on item 'Sennheiser MOMENTUM'

    Your profile picture (a HD800) confused me greatly, since it's the large picture on the review page, heh.

    How many hours straight can you wear a "comfortable" set of headphones?

    Pretty much everything in my profile I've fallen asleep with on. Comfort is a very big factor for me.

    Computer modeled Sennheiser HD-600

    Except for the headband pads, these look more like a HD 650 than a HD 600 in its current form.   Can I get a 2880x1800 to use as a wallpaper on my Retina Macbook Pro? ;-)

    A non-sense probably - From Sennheiser 558 HD to 598 HD

    I would suggest investigating other sound signatures like AKG, Beyerdynamic, Shure, Grado, etc.... before spending another $200 on what is probably an insignificant upgrade.   In fact, a lot of people prefer to have different cans for different genres of music.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Hear hear! Having heard many headphones sometimes costing 4-5 times more (including the much-praised HD800 and LCD-3), there's something about the sound and comfort of the HD6xx line that no other headphones do right. I don't think I'll ever sell my HD600 or HD650 although I'm still searching...

    Sennheiser MOMENTUM Review

    Just picked these up. No they're not a D2000 replacement. However, they do pretty much everything that is not bass better than the D2000s and much much more portable. The bad news is if you have even average sized ears, be prepared to wear these supra-aural. When I wear these supra-aural, I...

    Battle Of The Flagships (58 Headphones Compared)

    You mentioned that you heard them all out of the same amp? Did you level match the headphones? Human ears are pretty sensitive and even 1 dB difference will make the same headphone sound much better. Also did you try them level matched at different SPLs? This is important because different SPLs...

    Have a $500 credit, help me pick!

    If you like the HD580, the HD600 won't be that much of an upgrade. The main thing I hear out of that is different between the two is that the HD600 seems to have more of a sense of "space" since the metal grills don't reflect the sound as much as the plastic on the HD580. I'd try the AKG or...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    Just picked these up while I wait for a replacement headband for my HD650. Now that I've tried the 580 for the better part of 2 years, and own the 600 and 650, these are my favorite for pretty much genre that doesn't involve slamming the bass as hard as you can. The less prominent bass...

    How many hours straight can you wear a "comfortable" set of headphones?

    I find the Sennheiser HD55x/59x extremely light and comfortable and have a nice non-fatiguing sound signature. Have fallen asleep with them on more than once.

    Frequency Range ( 5Hz vs. 15Hz)

    I never claimed I was hearing a PURE 20 Hz tone, I just claimed I can hear the 20 Hz fundamental and then sit there and count the number of pulses per second. So as an example, I play viola, I can definitely hear A on my instrument (440 Hz), even though with bowed string instruments the 2nd...

    Frequency Range ( 5Hz vs. 15Hz)

    Why not? This guy can play Flight of the Bumblebee at 600 BPM. That's 10 beats per second, or 40 notes per second. It's not very clean at top tempo, but 20 notes a second would be a cakewalk to him. I never said it was an accurate signal, but it's definitely 20 Hz...

    NEWS: Beats in a lawsuit with Yamaha

    Are you kidding me? The teardrop shape is part and parcel of a useful headphone? Damn, Sennheiser must not be making headphones, they don't have the teardrop shape! They designed a headphone, and then applied a shape to it. The shape application was to purposefully file a patent which is used to...

    NEWS: Beats in a lawsuit with Yamaha

    Quote: The number of design patent lawsuits back then pales in comparison to the number we have now, hence rife. Furthermore, I feel it is abuse because companies are using the system in a way that it was not intended as I've expounded in an earlier post.
