 I totally agree with this...though the HE1000s do get more head-time as I do prefer them.
 I agree...these two headphones are really close for me too. Good to see some great options available!
 The more overall neutral signature put them ahead (and not by much, that's why I went 1 and 1A). Both are great cans, but the Momentum's are limited in their genres due to their less neutral signature...thus my scoring. 
I've updated my comparative thread to now include these most excellent headphones in case anyone is interested:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/672743/comparisons-26-of-the-top-closed-portable-headphones-around#post_9622611
 Thanks! They Series 2 P5s were on my list until I saw how they measured (worse) when compared to the originals. I found the pain that they caused on my ears especially a deal breaker for me. They would grip my ears and bend them over my glasses and put them in a three point bend that literally became unbearable for me. I'm glad you find them comfortable; but as mentioned the T51p's were better in pretty much every category for me (especially comfort). 
Just uploaded the most excellent Oppo PM-3s on my original post.   Just wonderful headphones and kudos to Oppo!!!   http://www.head-fi.org/t/672743/comparisons-26-of-the-top-closed-portable-headphones-around#post_9622611
 Sonically they're quite close. The PSBs are a bit more "neutral", but they are big and bulky...the HP50s (a bit laid back in comparison) are more portable and easier for on the go.  :)
 Lol, I want a bit more bass too...and FWIW, I think the PSBs have a tad more bass. 
 Also depends on your amp/source. I love the PSB M4U 1 & 2, but they are too big and bulky with sub-par NC circuitry on the latter. I will definitely put the PM-3s ahead of them though based on my experiences so far.
Too bass heavy? Too much treble roll off?  Lack of clarity and detail?  Lol, we're hearing things quite differently...different ears and gears as they say.  The FR response shows their bass quite linear with excellent square wave plots:http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/OppoPM3SampleC.pdf Headphones you've mentioned as excellent (which I agree with you), the PSB M1U, are quite similar:http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/PSBM4U1.pdf Looks like we hear it differently? But...
