Momentum basically address everything I expect!!!
I made comparison among Bose qc15, Beats studio, momentum.
1)display Momentum basically address everything I expect!!!
I made comparison among Bose qc15, Beats studio, momentum.
everyone has their own taste. I personally like wearing Studio at GYM, momentum and Bose qc15 at other places.They are somehow low key. I think Momentum black looks better than Bose Qc 15
Bose wins. Bose, yeah! Quality is great. Momentum is also good but momentum has two lines exposed outside handband adjustment parts. Beats studio is like 80% plastic. One thing you need to know momentum replacement I-device cable is over 120 bucks.
Studio put its into the first place. Momentum has huge case. Bose QC15 is flat but cannot be fold. Studio case is relative small and fold.
4)Noise Cancellation and sound leakage.
Bose QC15 blows others away. Momentum is great. It blocks a lot of noise. Beats studio noise cancellation works a little. With respect to sound leakage, Momentum is the best. It is sealed headphone. Bose QC 15 goes to second place. Beats studio just play music for everybody!!!
Momentum is much better than the other two. The sound is crisp, clear, and strong. It has the best sound quality in this three.The feeling of the momentum is accurate! Nothing is overpower just perfect! It has more bass than QC15. The highs and mids is better than beats studio. It pretty balance headphone and performs great in a variety of songs. …

Awesome Sounding Stylish Headphones
So after having a pair of Beats by Dre Solo HD for almost 2 years, I was finally deciding on buying a great pair of headphones wit So after having a pair of Beats by Dre Solo HD for almost 2 years, I was finally deciding on buying a great pair of headphones with "actual" precision sound quality and maybe some style. These Momentums met the requirement; in terms of sound quality, these things are very balanced. Bass is solid with a good "thump" while at the same time, not over powering the treble. Basically you can't go wrong with sound quality.
Build quality is great as well; stainless steel bands feel durable while the leather earcups are very comfortable
For $350, you can't go wrong with these headphones, try them out and buy them!! …

Two questions answered - sound and comfort?
Enough detail written elsewhere already...

Two questions worth addressing:
Sound: By far the best I've experienced yet, a good notch up from my QC15s (which surprised me), although I'm sure on a noisy aircraft Bose remains king. Listening directly from my iPhone 4, they sound good. Put a Fiio line-out adapter on the iPhone and go to a Total Bithead amp and then to the headphones and the whole experience goes up an order of magnitude - incredible dynamics and clarity and so very well balanced.
Comfort: I read all the "too small" comments and decided to try based on Apple's 14 day no cost return policy. I note that they are smaller inside than the QC15 and the headband feels just a little harder. I wondered if I'd be returning them. 3 minutes later, felt as though they had vanished, incredibly comfortable - but you do have to "tuck your ears in". The test for me was 45 minutes playing drums lots of movement and heat. No rubbing, no soreness and my ears are 2.5" long (yes I measured)...
Beautifully built, great sound, comfortable and Highly recommended! …

Best headphones I've owned
Bought these after the reduction in price as the momentum 2.0 headphones' release is imminent. These headphones are a great all-ro Bought these after the reduction in price as the momentum 2.0 headphones' release is imminent. These headphones are a great all-rounder. They sound great for almost all the music I have listened to so far, and as someone else mentioned, with these headphones you really can tell the difference between songs that are well made and those that aren't. However, these headphones will definitely leave bass-loving listeners wanting for more. After living with my Apple EarPods for quite some time, the reduction in bass in the Sennheisers was quite shocking. Dubstep and heavy dance tracks are definitely not suited to this headphone and I prefer even my Apple EarPods over these for this. These by no means sound bad with this music but there are definitely better alternatives out there if that is your primary listening category. However, the clarity of these for everything else is simply astounding and I would recommend these for anyone other than for the people mentioned above. …

Great Headphones! Small earpads.
These headphones are amazing in nearly every aspect expect for one. This ear pads are WAY to small! When I put them on for the fir These headphones are amazing in nearly every aspect expect for one. This ear pads are WAY to small! When I put them on for the first time I thought I had mistakenly brought the on-ear version. I may have above average sized ears but these things are just ridiculous. I had all my friends try them on and they barely fit any of us. This is major problem because everyone around you can hear what you are listening to and it makes listening to music on them for extended periods of time uncomfortable. I payed near $150 extra for the over-ear style only to get a headphone thats lost in the middle between on-ear and over-ear. Besides that problem the headphones are amazing. I listen to nearly every kind of music. Soul, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, Classical, you name it. The new type of these were just released on Sennheisers website and have bigger ear pads and a lot of cool new features. My advice, go with the new ones. I don't think you will be disappointed. …

Expensively Flat Sounding
These have to be some of the most flat sounding headphones I've ever bought from Sennheiser. Regret picking them up, wouldn't reco These have to be some of the most flat sounding headphones I've ever bought from Sennheiser. Regret picking them up, wouldn't recommend them to anybody and quite frankly for the price you might as well buy something with bluetooth and noise cancelling capabilities.
I've played around with the EQ but these don't quite handle bass too well, treble's always too high and it just sounds so flat. Do not buy if you don't enjoy rich sounds. Just too flat sounding for me. …

Personally I prefer the P5s as I find them more comfortable and I really like the design. The Momentums are comfortable too they just don't fit my head as nicely as the p5s. You really can't go wrong with either pair. …
