So i have been looking for some new cans for a while now and taking sneaky dems in department stores in between shopping trips with the missus and basing selection on reviews. I am blessed with a fabulous store just a 25 minute drive away (Custom Cable / Unilet) and found the time to take a visit there today - and man am i glad i did! I was fairly set on shipping in some Sennheiser Momentum's, either on ear or over. I had tried out both variants but never back to back as the likes of John Lewis or the dreaded Currys/PC World didn't have them available. I had also demoed B&W P7s against the Momentum Over ears at the Apple Store but discounted them at the time. So - the magic of a proper store, greeted by Phil who passed over a pair of Momentums and the P7s - i had to give them a retry , the big difference was the environment and the advise. There was no upsell or pushiness, just the invite to take a seat in a lovely quiet environment in a comfy leather chair and left alone whilst i thrashed through my playlists........bliss. The outcome....well my ears upsold me to the P7s, when positioned in a comfortable chair instead of hunched over a display stand with impossibly short leads and security tags hanging on the headband i actually got to properly test both cans, back to back in comfort, and my ears let me know the best choice for me. Thank heavens there are still quality stores with knowledgeable people around. Thanks to Phil @Custom-Cable, and to top it all i was cut a more than very fair deal after my ears were intent on breaking my bank managers heart.
