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!! …

So far 5 Star
Just picked these up after reading the reviews and I am not disappointed. I tried many others with no real success. Yes there ar Just picked these up after reading the reviews and I am not disappointed. I tried many others with no real success. Yes there are better ones on the market but for the price these are as good as they get. Very natural, not bass heavy like most on market now. True to the recording, great soundstage for 350 bucks...
Could be a little brighter but have not broken in yet. …

Sound incredible and really comfortable!
I've been researching headphones for the past few weeks and narrowed it down to the V-Moda M-100 and Sennheiser Momentum. I listen I've been researching headphones for the past few weeks and narrowed it down to the V-Moda M-100 and Sennheiser Momentum. I listen to a lot of jazz from contemporary to straight ahead, as well as some Funk, R&B and a smatter of other genres.
I found a local retailer that had the V-Moda M-100 Shadow and tried them for about a week. They sounded really good, heavy bass but not overly done. Construction was extraordinary and folded up to a compact size (really liked the design) as an architect I’m into design. For me though the comfort level was just okay. I figured for what I was going to spend they had to sound good and be comfortable. So I returned them.
Went to my local Apple store and picked up the Sennheiser Momentum Black. Wow, they sound great and feel wonderful!!! They look great as well, nicely designed but don't fold. While I know headphones tend to be subjective but for my tastes the Sennheiser Momentum is just what I wanted. Pairs up nicely with my iPhone 5s and highly recommend them.
As a suggestion to my local Apple store you really should have a headphone listening area in the store. You carry a wide selection of great headphones that hit a number of price points. Customers should be allowed an opportunity to check them out prior to buying. Just saying! …

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. …
