I have tried both products and have both an oversized head AND big ears. The M100s are fine; many, many hours of comfortable, non-stop listening so far!

The Momentums are basically a large pair of supra-aurals and the M100s are a smallish pair of circum-aurals. All you need to do, just as I did, is stretch the headband on the M100s a little, and boom, perfect fit with perfect clamping force. It doesn't damage them and can easily be corrected. Viva los metal-headbands!

The earpads, I had a worse time with my Sennheiser HD 25-i-IIs. These ones aren't bad and just as with any headphone, after a little adjusting, do the job nicely. 

I can see you've already committed to your decision, but I just wanted to try and round out your take of "shallow cups + tight clamp" from a first hand type situation.

Hey Guys just wanted to share something. I had a chipping problem with M100 and I talked to the rep David and he said he will replace them.(AWESOME 6 STAR SERVICE) I was wondering if I should keep the matte black or swap it out for some shadow or white silver? What do you guys think? I really like the pearl white and black shield combo, but whats your guy's opinion? Thanks!

I tried the momentums in the shop and they are a bit tight but they have enough depth... They are not supra aural... Just normal circum aural, just a bit small in size around but the depth is ok... My problem is more with the extremely shallow depth on the M100 because my ears stick out slightly and I am 95% sure they will touch the mesh and become uncomfortable very quiclkly, when the XL pads come out I will prob give the Vmoda a try.

You can't get much more subjective than color.  That said, Matte Black is my personal favorite.  I have seen all three colors in person, and it just looks the best.  IMO the Pearl would be better suited as white.  I do like the faux suede headband on the shadow.  I would like to see that on the matte.  Maybe with orange stitching?  There has to be a way to have one sewn up...

x2 for Matte

Matte is probably the most versatile, but I prefer the look of the Shadow personally.

When are the XL pads being released for these?

I listen to rock and metal music and am thinking of getting these. Are they good for rock and metal?

They are good for all genres of music. They excel at EDM, dubstep, pop and rap/hip hop, but every genre (jazz, classical, country, etc.) works just fine. Rock and metal aren't their BEST genre, but that's kind of like saying the HD800 isn't the BEST headphone for dubstep and EDM. Nitpicks is all.

These are awesome for rock, metal, etc.  Most of our music is horribly recorded and these really help it out.  Nice separation, tamed highs, great mids and lows.  Kick drum sounds nice....

I wouldn't recommend them for rock/metal at this price. They're not as clear as I'd like for these genres, the bass isn't fast enough so it gets bloated on fast tracks. Also the bass covers up some details in songs that I'd like to hear more clearly, but yes, they are 'ok' for rock and metal.

I agree with this. Rock sounds only OK with the M-100 and I wouldn't really recommend them as a rock headphone.

 

Try a SRH940 with rock and you'll be rocking all the way. They are still my favourite closed-back headphones for rock music.

Wow guys thanks for all of the feedback. I was also looking at the amperiors. Do you guys know anything about these for rock/metal?
