Why use 2 amps at once? Isn't the Z02.3 also an amp?
Anyway, as I walked to work today, and of course took headphones, I did a direct comparison with the Momentums at the Apple Store.
Again unplugging and using my own source and the
same songs for both, and just switching.
Again no issues with staff. They all seem rather techy so nothing really phases them.
I can conclude, as I did last time, detail retrieval is alot better on the M-100s and it just sounds more lively.
The bass on the M-100s goes deeper, and is much tighter with again better details.
I played a trance song for example and noticed how flabby the bass was in comparison. I'll call it bouncy..
Tried a few rocky songs including Pierce The Veil - Hell Above and the vocals didn't sound as different as I thought they might. Not enough to make the Momentums a better purchase. Plus with the seperation/soundstage being better on the M-100s.
Maybe the Momentum's amp better? I was only running direct from my S3 with the wolfson dac but volumes still reached good enough levels.
But yeah, I know for sure now, for my ears at least. The detail retrievel and tighter bass alone makes these worth the purchase.
