[Amazon.ca] $259.95 Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless Headphone with Active Noise Cancellation - Black

Big drop price for the Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless Headphone. I checked the price history, this is pretty much the lowest.

It's been at that price for at least a week and a half on Amazon. The problem is whether Electronique Hi-Fi Inc is an authorized dealer so that Sennheiser will honour the warranty. I checked on Sennheiser's website but I haven't figured out how to see who's an authorized dealer or not. Their find an authorized dealer page simply redirects to the main page. That's may be why they sold out on Best Buy at that price but not on Amazon.

Yes, it has been this price for a while. But if the only concern is about the seller. You can go to sennheiser official site, it is the same price.

No AAC support is the deal breaker for me

I’m looking for a pair of headphones for commuting on the bus to work daily. Want Bluetooth and noise cancellation and have a ~$250 budget. Would these be a viable option?

I’ve had these for about 2 years ....they are really great headphones. Very long battery life and the noise cancelling is awesome. Super comfortable at well. They aren’t super bass heavy, but do have decent bottom end sound.

they are ok, ANC is below class leading, and they are bit uneven sounding in the highs. I would say get the refurb Bose for the same price (one of the best ANC, and still ok sounding)

RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Design wise these are way more beautiful than the new ones. The new ones look cheap and a lazy iteration of these to make assembly easier. If I'm made of money I'd pick up another pair of these before they go extinct. Can't compare sound wise but I enjoy the sound of these enough.

The deal breaker should be that it doesn't support aptX HD. AAC is old school and only useful for people who strictly use itunes with an iphone which is rare in this day and age given that Spotify is the music streaming king now.

The app (whether it's Spotify, Apple music, etc) is irrelevant here since Aptx or AAC is a bluetooth audio codec. Any app that you use needs to go through this bluetooth codec to transmit music; that's the real bottleneck. Even if your app is playing Hi Res audio but if you're limited to aptx transmission your audio is still degraded. The fact that ios devices never supported any kind of aptx variant (aptx hd, aptx low latency) is disappointing. So basically if you have an ios device this headphone is not for you.

Interestingly, it's now listed as sold by Amazon instead of Electronique Hi-Fi Inc.
