I'd recommend the HD4.30 from the Sennheiser outlet for £39.99 over these by a mile. You don't seem to be able to deep link directly to products in the outlet so you'll have to search for it but they are an absolute bargain. Graded as "b stock" but honestly the only sign of this is minor external packaging damage. Start here: https://en-uk.sennheiser.com/outlet
Got them for £32.80 using Blue Light Card. Much appreciated.
If you're a member and have a Blue Light Card, you can get an extra 20% off.
Thanks OP, just ordered. For those saying 4.50 BTNC are better, that's only if you are wearing in a noisy environment. If wearing in quiet surroundings these are just a good, if not better.
Let us know what you think of them. If you don't like them they'll collect for free for a refund (y)
Hardly a small price difference, these for £49.99 and the HD 4.50 are £89.99 I received mine and they look totally mint, no damage to the box, not sure how the headphones would normally come wrapped etc but mine look like they are new. I’ve yet to try them as I’m away for the weekend and will take a better look on Monday. (y)
Idiot question here: to get these to work with a PS4 do I need to get a Bluetooth dongle for the PS4 USB port...will that do it or are these not suitable for that purpose or is there something else I need to do? They're obviously not for me or I would know this kind of thing! Plus I've already bought them so a bit late asking now!
I'd go for the 4.50 ones from Amazon for a small price difference, brand new and with noise cancelling
Most music players have an equalizer function. you can use that to tailor the sound to your taste. I appreciate some people do not like to us a graphic equalizer as it adds another process to the sound. Sennheiser for me always have a good sound profile, so are neutral, however these do have a deep and powerful bass and go loud - too loud at the highest volume setting, although this depends on how the music was recorded. I have done a lot of experimenting to get these to sound as good as my wired headphones and have finally achieved it with a music player with a reverb function - NRG player, which is free, as well as having a graphic equaliser also allows you to change the reverb. This opens up the sound.
I use NRG player which is free and has a reverb facility. Use this and the sound opens up to sound like a wired headphone. Without this they are good but not sparkling.
Received mine brand new box with brand new headphones inside. Have not tested them as yet but they certainly look brand new and you can't beat the price!
Got my pair, Boise cancellation enabling is mega annoying, need to press volume up and down at the same time and it still doesn’t at least tell u it’s enabled or disabled. Then there is the matter of it can’t say power off, it says ower off, what’s that all about😳
Just bought a pair, great price! HEAT! (y)
I cant blame you these are impossible for the standard to big Ears :) works ok for me plus Apt-X is a big plus !
Yep, same here. Mine could also be on their way back. They sound pretty good but just hurt my ears. I'm struggling to figure out why that'd make the ear pads so small.
Mine went back. On-ear hurt my ears after a short time. They sounded decent
I got small ears but still they are Bloody Tiny :D P.s Over -ear I may return it if it was Full price ;)
Has anyone else found they're on-ear and not over-ear? I was surprised to see how tiny the earpads are. :|
Yeah I’ve got another 2 weeks so will have a bit more of a play round. Including discounts/quidco came out around £90 in the end
For £110 I wouldn't be comfortable with unsure. There are plenty of choices for this price range
Trying mine out for the first time. Haven’t really used headphones in years and am a bit unsure on how comfortable these are. Fine on my right ear but can’t get as comfortable on my left weirdly. Enjoying the performance tho
Guys. I bought the momentum 2 over ear for iOS. However I have Android, I listen to music but the sound is opposite. So the sound supposed to come out from the left ear comes from the right and vice versa. Is this because it's an iOS cable to android phone? Also I can hear wind when I am outside whilst using these.
Anyone had them delivred yet?
Yep, loving mine too. Utter bargain for £40-odd. Was considering selling them to put toward the wireless over ear ones I picked up at the same time. But no, curiosity got the better of me and can't let them go now!
loving mine, here is newsssssssss lol https://www.whathifi.com/news/save-over-45-sennheiser-momentum-20-headphones
Estimated Dispatch Date: 17th July. I'll take that, I've been after these headphones for *ages*. Funny, though. "Ships in 1-2 working days" my ass, that's almost as funny as Dell's dispatch estimates.
Same here, except I asked to cancel the order as they haven't been dispatched a week after order was placed. They said it's too late to cancel the order as it's ready to be shipped. That was yesterday, if they're not dispatched by Friday I'll be giving them a call I think.
Ordered on the 24th. Still 'boxed shipment'. Emails to Customer Service just say that it'll be shipped soon. :/
Hi, I'm finding the headband a bit uncomfortable (and yes I have hair!) so thinking of getting some kind of cushioning to go on the headband, any recommendations please? The nearest suitable thing I can find are these but perhaps someone might know better.... ebay link
In case anybody has somehow missed it, they have now paid out Quidco cashback also.
Just a quick update: they sent me out replacement headphones and these new headphones work perfectly. I have not had a single disconnection with the new replacements using the exact same setup, which I was really surprised about. There must be significant quality control issues / variability in the manufacturing of these headphones. Basically if you're getting constant disconnection issues, it's worth sending them back for a new replacement.
Guys - If anyone has any disconnection issues, Sennheiser have said to let them know (their customer services are 0333 240 8185). They are saying no-one has reported ANY disconnection issues with these headphones ever (even globally) or sent any back under warranty reporting these problems. They said if people don't report the problem they can't investigate and fix the issue. They had this disconnection problem with the previous edition of these headphones but were under the impression it had been fixed. They need people to let them know of any problems so they can work out if it's a bad batch or a wider fault. Mine are completely unusable with my Samsung S7 Edge (using their own app, Captune) due to constant disconnections/reconnections (phone and headset are right next to each other). The same phone and app work perfectly with my Sony wireless headphones with no disconnections whatsoever.
I have a slightly different problem. If I'm connected to two sources and one loses connection, it does the LOST CONNECTION thing whenever there's no sound coming out of the other connection... and it doesn't seem to ever stop! All I've found to do is power the headphones completely off and on again.
Did anyone actually manage to get one? They’ve changed the price now.
Damn, the price indeed goes up at checkout, got my hopes up!!!
Totally would have been all over this!
Price goes back up on checkout.
579 are better and cheaper on Argos.
Cold. Standard price?
Are these any good for electronic music & rock?
Also same price on Amazon at the moment if anybody prefers
Site is not accepting the code :(
They are back in stock now and the discount code still works.
Whilst the value of a pair of headphones or any product is not directly proportional to the price paid, simply because expensive things are sold in lesser quantities than cheaper things, and some products, in particular hi-fi products have for many years been sold on the basis of hearsay and pseudo 'scientific' mumbo jumbo, sennheisers to me offer good value for money. I now have four sets in various price ranges. Yes, my hearing range will have diminished but what I can hear sounds very clean and undistorted even at uncomfortably high sound levels. These phones are not just simple wired phones, they are wireless if required (with over a 20 hour battery life) or they can be directly connected and charged via USB. What is also often overlooked when people complain about the price, as they often do here, is that they are also active noise cancelling. A good noise cancelling phone set eliminates a lot of extraneous noise on flights, trains etc, so you don't need to have them at such a high level. There is also a free 'ap' which will allow you to taylor the frequency response to your requirements. The only thing I would say about these phones is that the earpads are quite tight on my ears, unlike my other sennheiser phones so if you have big ears you may find them uncomfortable!
On the strength of the condition of yours, I've just bought them. There's an awful lot of info out there on this set, mostly very positive. I agree with you, a really good deal which of course was never going to be appriciated by some. There nothing close to the deal you posted. Thanks for posting this
Received mine this afternoon. Pristine condition. Very happy indeed with this deal. Appreciate they're not for everyone but a £130 saving is a hot deal in my eyes.
Checked this morning in the Thurrock branch price was back up to £169, bargain if you can get it
wow, that is a **** bargain
that will be why I can't find it then :D thanks.
It's Black / Wired / Around Ear (AE) No longer listed online.
The wireless ones are about £300!!
Would the ebay ones be entitled for the 2 year manufacturer warranty? No sarcasm.
Cold Way expensive, even after discount. Cheaper (and orignals) on eBay
Any tricks to get unidays like there is for NUS?
Only for androids, damn, hit me up when the human ones become available.
Recently bought momentum over ear m2 from Amazon for £138 . Brilliant headphones. £175 refurbished still not a bad price considering they retail for £199.
Sennheiser hd598 for budget ; has detail and clarity and smooth sounding; like all sennheiser and beyerdynamic headphones they are accurate not brassy
Hope you like them :)
You're the best! Got them cheers! <3
Now available :)
Can't recommend the momentum over ear enough. Awesome all round sound and not too much bass.Recently got a bargain price of £138 new from Amazon, next day back to £199!
Headroom was awesome! being a Queen fan getting the chance to visit Metropolis studio was something I will never forget. Chilling out in studio 1 listening to Queen on high end planar magnetic headphones! The B&W p5 s2 cans were one of the biggest surprises at Headroom for me that day. Sure there was more expensive headphones on display but I was blown away with how good they were for portable cans. As someone who uses Grado headphones every day, I was expecting great things from their high end cans. However, I was a little surprised that out of every headphone I heard that day it was the Sennheiser HD800 I fell in love with!
wtf are you on about? did your brain just take a dump? try again and try to make some sense.
You get what you pay for £300 for two speakers and some wire, while I agree, its still a couple of speakers!
I haven't heard the S2 model though apparently they're an improvement. I certainly wouldn't blind buy a B&W headphone again but I'd be happy to audition them (along with the P7 and newly released P9). Did you enjoy the Headroom exhibition? I'd love to go one year.
I had a similar experience where after waiting a week for dispatch I phoned them and was told the order was cancelled as they were out of stock!
I thought I go tthe deal. BUT After nearly a month of unlimited chasing UPS & DigitalRiver (online selling agent of Sennheiser), they have refunded my money instead of sending me a replacement product!!! I can't believe UPS actually lost my parcel while it was delivered to UK's depot...... sad...
Annoyed to have missed this. Looks like it was a misprice because they're back on sale at £330. The HD 700 are fugly though.
You have issues.
Not sure why either. Your "So what" comment summed up perfectly all you had to say. The rest seems like pretentious gibberish.
This Digital River company Sennheiser deal with are absolute pants. I have been chasing my refund for the best part of a month with no joy. They keep making up excuses like 'we are waiting for a confirmation from the Sennheiser warehouse that the item has been received'. We both have tracking details showing the item arrived and was signed for by a specific name. This story has continued for weeks! Has anybody else had issues receiving their refund?
A musical fidelity one.
Sorry which dacamp?
Hope my hd700 refund comes through. In hindsight they were dull to listen to compared to x2s and really plastic. I amped them off a 124snr dacamp too.
Just got email to say that they have received my 180`s back and got refund ...but minus £3.99 which is a bit naughty as they was faulty ....
invalid promo code.
good find heatttt
Nice find, heat added - shame device max volume can't be increased easily. (sorry - it's a major bug bear of mine)
yeah you are right, updated. Also Quidco tracked quickly at £1.02 :)
Mine was 23.47
Bought a pair of these last year, as i thought it would be an improvement on HD555's, but to be honest was very disappointed. Even with lots of burn in time, so returned them. A few months later bought the AKG K702, which really have blown me away with the quality. So for me paying the extra £40 over this price was definitely worth it.
Anyone who got the french deal how quickly did they arrive ?
kills me that i missed that twice.
Can someone with access change the link in the get deal box to the link above please
