    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      Did you check the UK website like I suggested? Found it first go. The US spare parts website is very clumsy and I've never found the right parts on there without part numbers which you can get from the UK website quite easily. Don't know about costs of shipping but they do ship overseas if...

    Huge Comparison of [almost] all the Best Bluetooth Headphones - post your own comparisons here

    It doesn't surprise me that for AAC files the AAC codec can sound better if it is being transmitted to the headphones directly without having to be compressed. Aptx is a better compression technology but it doesn't say it performs as if the file is uncompressed. Though I don't know if a Mac is...

      Is there anything holding you back from giving the Symphony 1 a go until now (other than the price)?

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      The Momentum Wireless works quite well on Android phones but OTG doesn't work the way you tried. You can't connect an OTG cable to the headphones. Headphones don't support OTG, phones do. With an Android phone you need to connect the OTG adapter to the phone and then connect a regular data...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      There are quite a few bluetooth headphones that do compete and better the Momentum wireless on all those counts. Sound quality really comes down to personal preferences when it comes to a certain level. A lot of people on Head-Fi do prefer the sound of headphones such as the Sony 1RBT/1ABT...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      The main issues were related to problems with the reliability of the bluetooth connection and, to a lesser extent issues with the noise cancelling not working properly and not being able to be turned off in wireless mode. The wired model doesn't have either of those features (obviously cannot...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      It was explained how to check a few pages earlier in the thread. In this post.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      There is a good chance the Momentum Wireless will sound better with Android devices but that doesn't mean it will sound bad with iPhones. I don't recall any serious complaints regarding sound quality with iPhones on this thread. Most complaints were regarding bluetooth connectivity which has...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      There is actually a workaround way to do it though you would need to be a hardcore tester or happen to have/need the devices required. You basically need an Avantree Priva or probably any bluetooth adapter that supports multipoint and two bluetooth headphones. With the Priva it allows you to...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      A lot of what you say could be because of the Note 4 simply having better technology inside then the fact they use aptx too. I've noticed even with headphones that only have SBC that they often sound better on Note devices than iPhones. Aptx does seem make a difference to most people but it...

      Not sure. Never really tried posting links and images here when I was new. Give it a go and see if it works.

    Sennheiser RS 165, RS 175, RS 185, RS 195 - Impressions thread

    Amps in general don't have any effect on Sennheiser RS series headphones as they all have their own built in amp in the transmitter. Any particular reason you are after the RS 195? They are a more specialised model designed more for people with hearing loss and such. I haven't tried that model...

      From that it sounds like it should be similar in quality to those two headphones (has pretty much the same features) but perhaps with larger earcups to suit the people who found the Zik and Backbeat Pro too small. Let's see how it performs.

      That video seemed to be advertising the whole range but focussing more on an on ear model, though I guess ANC should be pretty similar on both. How is the price of the headphones compared to some of the other ones you have tried lately?

      Yeh I can't read that so didn't look at that site. Seems like it has been quietly released without any previews either which is a bit surprising.

      Looks interesting from the website. Can't find much information about them anywhere though. Looking forward to your impressions.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      You could perhaps contact Sennheiser Germany and see what they say regarding replacement of headphones in Italy. Or try and talk to a manager in Italy and see if they might know something.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      It's not just the new REV01 that seems to be having issues it seems. @lawrence1 seems to be having issues with his REV02 as well, and I saw a similar complaint of REV02 not fixing things elsewhere too. Either way if there are uncertainties with any of the new models it's honestly looking...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      Given that the headphones were recalled every REV01 headphone being sold at reputable retailers now (not eBay) should be upgraded models. So if you believe Sennheiser's word there should be no need to even bother calling them up. People will always be worried though and there was that stuff...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      Have you read the last few pages of this thread? This is EXACTLY what Sennheiser have claimed to have done and have been telling posters who have complained about getting the REV01 so.   @Tommaeh Your best bet would be to contact Sennheiser directly and ask them if you have got the repacked...

    High End Bluetooth Headphones

    @Dieucocto You might want to have a look at this thread. Theres quite a bit more information and a fair few comparisons between lots of different headphones. Theres also a bit of discussion comparing the 1RBT and 1ABT. Not everyone preferred the newer model. Comfort wise unless your ears are...

    High End Bluetooth Headphones

      They use models with small heads for the videos. Are you able to try them out at all before you buy? Best way to tell if something will work. What sort of price range are you looking at?

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    @bjornand Great to hear it was a most likely a mistake then. Curious to know why Sennheiser Sweden seemed to get the old model and the new model delivered together. Looking forward to hearing how it performs once you get the new version since you know exactly where to go experience bluetooth...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

      How easy is it to return items in Sweden? If it is easy then perhaps go a store and buy a pair that is known to have no bluetooth problems. Bose stores usually have good return policies. Then just return it once you've done your testing.
