    I just got the Momentum over ear second hand, and I'm really disappointed with the sound it sounds a bit flat and not really great with my music selection, so I tried an EQ.
    Whenever I try to play with the EQ on Mediamonkey the sound distorts almost instantly even on low adjustments.
    I'm playing them through a Samsung NP510 laptop if that helps.
    Could there be a problem with the headphones?

    When you say "over ear", is that on-ear or around-ear?

    EQ's on some players do have bad distortions, but more likely the 'preamp' is being overdriven. Check the computer system 'sound' settings to see if there's a wrong setting (google for correct settings), then check the mediamonkey settings for things like buffer size etc. (also google for suggestions). Foobar for example has optional equalizers that are better than the standard equalizer.
