Sennheiser Momentum Headphones £129.99 In HMV - Apparent Misprice

WessexUnderwaterWessexUnderwater

In HMV Cheltenham, these sumptuous cans were marked at £259.99, not blue crossed. Some other cheaper ones were blue crossed with a sign on the wall saying up to 40% off, including some Bose AC3s.

I thought I might as well give it a shot so i took these up as well as the Bose ones. The guy told me the Bose were only 20% off but for some reason these were going through at half price. Needless to say I jumped at it. He said it was a misprice on the national computer and they were only supposed to be 10% off. £260 seems about right online going by Google shopping.

Great review here - http://www.whathifi.com/review/momentum

£155.99 when I bought a pair today.

    Nope what it means is you have have no idea how good music sounds through a decent set of cans so you carry on listening through your Poundland earphones so you can spend your spare money on your booze and fags kidda....

    I might be getting old but who pays £130 for earphones for day to day use?
    None of us are music producers are we.
    Not voted hot or cold, as these are probably the cheapest price so a cold vote would be unwarranted but still £130 for earphones.

    When I was young if you had earphones going over your head you got bullied for looking a tool.


    You obviously dont appreciate good audio quality.

    LMAO

    i suppose you usually shop in lidl/aldi and have a £300 technika tv, a dacia sandero and a htc wildfire and primark gear.

    as with everything you get what you pay for, i do love a good bargain but i prefer quality over cheap tat i did buy some cheap white t-shirts for the gym from primark once, but i found the quality of the material, the shape and fit as well as the way they changed colour over time made me spending £10-£20 on a single white CK t shirt worthwhile, because i know it will feel better, last longer and retain it's natural white colour.

    for example, i spend £17 for a litre of cooking oil/butter, whereas you probably spend £1 a litre, the difference being i am eating the healthiest and most natural thing possible, and you have cheap man made refined stuff which is bad for you. you may think me spending 17 times as much is crazy but the stuff lasts me a month so £17 for a month is cheap imo.

    more info on oil here

    if you can find me a cheaper supplier of the same quality of oil, i would be happy. remember unbleached, un refined, organic stuff virgin coconut oil.

    we are all not knuckle draggers like yourself who do not appreciate quality.


    No, but at least he was polite and didn't feel the need to shout about some frankly poor status symbols.

    Sounds like a good deal, but doubt I'd find any. Hot for the info though! :)

    Surely if you are using them day to day that's a good reason to stump up. 3p/day if you use them for 10 years.

    One snag with these cans is the cable is 10cm less than the distance from my stereo to my PC chair. Hence the angle of the avatar

    now as i read this the post is for Sennheiser Momentum Headphones at a price of £129.99

    but the post suggest that the OP bought the Bose AC3 ones but doesn't say for how much

    is my reading of the post correct ?
    WessexUnderwater
    No the Bose were still £240 so I didn't bite.

    Ive been looking for some new headphones for between £100 and £150 and these fit the bill. Ive been considering the Sennheiser HD 25-1 ii. So now im wondering if the Sennheiser HD 25-1 ii are 40/50% off at HMV too. If anyone's going to HMV please do keep an eye out for me and if possible a price check would be nice. Cheers.

    hmv have a blue cross sale..up to 75% discount

    different items are discounted at different rates

    headphones are probably 50% off...i got an ipad case that was 50% off

    Good deal. However, is it worth spending this on headphones when the majority of people now listening to lower quality mp3 music?
    WessexUnderwater
    Valheru IIRC the guy said it was affecting all Sennheiser cans. Not sure if the model you mention was in stock though.

    Great price, are these better than Beats though? lol X) (sorry couldn't resist as I know they seem to get everyones comments flowing) 50% off anything has to be a deal doesn't it? This is what the site is about surely.

    Anyone know if HMV are selling iPhones on the cheap too? May make a trip to get one from the Mrs if they are, 20% on one of them would be very nice thank you.

    I was in HMV Stockport this week and got a pair of Panasonic RP-HTX7A which while not stickered blue cross scanned at 50% off (£49.99 to £24.99) . I think its worth getting anything scanned at the till as it looks like more items/discount being added daily.
