I bought these headphones online because they weren't available for screening at my local Apple store. I've had Sennheiser products in the past and they are generally excellent products. I must say, however, that I was disappointed with this model. Despite what previous reviewers have said, I did not find the clarity that impressive and the bass was not particularly tight. I would have given the Momentums a 4-star rating if they cost $200, but for this price, I expected more.
