The Over-ears have leather-ear pads. The On-ears have velour (kind of felt feeling.)

Oh no, I only meant in terms of size. Went for an Internet and now I see they were probably the over-ear version. Are those not made anymore?

Quite the contrary. There are new colours added all the time. The Momentum On-ear is quite popular.

Cool. Perhaps I should hunt for a sale on the over-ears... :D

I'm sure you'll find one eventually. Might be a few months since it's Sennheiser, but at some point you'll see a deal and just buy it. Same way I got my HD558s for $120 and Senns hold their value, as seen by how expensive (and still good) older models like the HD600 and HD650 are.

Between what, the Momentums and the HD558s? If it's between those 2, I'd put my money on the Momentums (even though I haven't them yet). From what I've read, they offer the more consumer sound sig and seem like they'd fit electronic better with the more present bass response. HD558s are more balanced and natural sounding (not best in show probably but great for the price), great for vocals and orchestral pieces, so if you're actually just going for straight accuracy, HD558s. I'm loving listening to electronic on my HD558s though. I listen to Mitis, Au5, The Glitch Mob, C2C (though I honestly don't know if I should count that as electronic), and edIT if you're what kinda electronic I listen to with my HD558s.
