FoL#1 Ellie has nicked my Sennheiser Momentum 2 on ear cans.
I use them with my phone and iPod, mostly when I’m walking the dog or just being unsociable. She’s using them with her TEAC A-H500 amp to listen to her K Pop shite when she’s been told to turn it down.
No problem I thought, they were like £45, I’ll just get a nice new pair. Not anymore, more like £150.
But I’ve seen some Sennheiser HD598 SR in the outlet shop for 75 quid, down from £200. Or some HD599 for £69, down from £179.
But they’re open backed, and as they’ll be new and mostly shiny (b stock, so maybe a mark or 2 on them), I might have them and let Ellie have the Momentums, but just how much noise do they kick out? Are they obnoxiously loud?
And also, are the models mentioned above decent enough for the outlet price?
Sorry for the HiFi question.
