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.

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.

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.

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

Also got some Sen Amperior very very nice for £156, looks like HMV are clearing out all over the place.

Thanks, will check these out.
#13
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 ?
#14
No the Bose were still £240 so I didn't bite.
#15
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?
#18
Valheru IIRC the guy said it was affecting all Sennheiser cans. Not sure if the model you mention was in stock though.
#19
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.
#20
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.

HMV dont do iphones and where they have reduced ipad, ipods and tablets in most cases the stock has gone back already.

I used to be a non-believer for a long time. But I got converted and bought a set of very nice speakers that used to retail for 2k+£. I get questions like "how many watts?" - maybe only 50W Sine wave power and uncountably more Watts PMPO. When I turn them up people are amazed and shocked, because their BOSE speaker sound like crap compared to them. The clarity, the spatial resolution, it is like you are standing directly in front of an orchestra playing just for you. You can hear the singer opening her mouth and breathing ever so clearly. It is almost spooky.

Obviously you won't be able to appreciate good speakers/headphones if you use your iPhone to play back some (badly ripped) MP3's. But in that case you should also mix a Grand Cru Bordeaux wine with Coke...:D
#23
this is a good deal but yet when I was in there today. some stuff was still way more expensive then other places. it seems strange that they can knock so much money off things like this but other stuff is like way over the odds. example a pair of turtle beach x42 if I remember correctly. were priced at 150. 40% off made 90. I can buy them for that online without a sale.
#24
Matthew, try the xp500, think they 90 too
#25
Thanks for the heads up, I'm after some headphones so I'll head to HMV later. Great deal.
#26
i upgraded from apple earphones to bose AE2i (£80) then to a bose QC15 noise cancelling (£190)...
well worth it for me. travelling on the train and plane is now a completely different experience 8)

Get the Sennheiser Amperior ones, £157 on the HMV blue cross. Basically HD25's with metal cups, and sound even better. I bought a pair yesterday for a friend to upgrade from the 25s, and I will buy his old pair.

good deal, i've got the sennheiser HD555's and they're awesome cans for the £70 i paid for them, although these ones look like a whole new level, can't really justify new headphones though, considering a new hifi system with some floorstanders currently

I have an iphone 5 and any headphones I have wouldbe used with this, is it not worth paying extra for quality headphnes such as these if the MP3 quality is already pretty poor? Ive currently got a pair of sennheiser 218i and am considering getting a real quality set of headphones, will it be worth it just for ipod / iphone use?
#33
These are not bad for the price but they aren't great either. Useless for mp3 and won't be at their best unless you are feeding them a good signal from a good amp. Some of the comments on here are priceless but then intellect has limits where stupidity has none ;)

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

i on the other hand own a pair of hd25-1 mk ii's, shop in asda, have 2 top of the range plasma's (one panasonic and one samsung), nexus 4 and 2 german cars and a japanese one as well as a fine range of designer gear.

Think the Amperior might be down to £129.99 as well as all those with blue cross sticker in Middlesbrough were coming with 50% off and the staff were unaware. Guy who served me said 'yeah they're all 40% off' so I still asked him to scan them and he was a bit surprised to see he was wrong and the pair below were 50% off.

Picked up a pair of the Sennheiser CX890i's for the princely sum of £54.99 (blue cross with 50% off marked price of £109.99).

The HD SP II were priced up at £79.99 and no blue cross sticker to still this price despite the guy telling me there was 40% off all headphones. The sign clearly states 'selected headphones'.

I have the Bose QC3. The sound quality is pretty good but the noise cancelling is amazing. Mine were £300 about 3 years ago. I use them 5 days a week for 3 hours on my commute. Its like the difference between an Aston Martin and a ford. As for the questions on quality. Cd and super cd always win but you cannot tell the difference between 320/190 mp3 files.

head over to head fi for more info, you will be surprised that the iphone has really good audio internals, just that they were designed to supply in ear plugs rather than headphones. spend £50 on a decent set of in-ears rather than headphones for an iphone. mp3's can be just as good quality as the cd so long as its a decent bit rate, etc. and you are using a decent app like EQU to play them through. head over to head fi if you want to learn more.

absolute rubbish, your making mp3 out to be audio cassette quality when it is not, sure it is not FLAC, but it doesn't need to be if your using a decent audio processing app, I use Neutron MP on android, it plays all my 320kbps mp3's crystal clear.
#38
I was looking at the Momentum & Amperiors yesterday.
Sadly the Amperiors were not on the listening posts so I couldn't have a quick listen or test for comfort :(

The guy scanned them through the till but said he would have to manually apply a 40% discount.
Couldn't make my mind up but might go back for them today.

HD SP II are terrible in comparison with HD25-1 II's, a lot of people get them mixed up thinking they are getting a good deal, but the SP's are nowhere near the same product.
