I don't know why but i'm kinda leaning towards the Momentums Over Ear, yes they do have less bass but I think i'd prefer less bass and a tad more clarity smily_headphones1.gif. Why have they gone cheaper on Amazon? They are selling for $250.

They're getting marked down everywhere. The on-ears are $160 now. I just don't think they're selling well.

Father's day is a drive-time for headphones, so many manufacturers mark down their products around this time every year.

If you don't mind on ear you could get the Vmoda XS for $200

i agree the vmoda xs is less bassier >m100s. so if you find the m100s to be too bassy its a great choice! i find the vocals flow out on the soundstage better (what i mean is it takes centre stage) unlike the m100s. 

 

the treble is smoother too so its really an easy listening headphone despite it's flashy design.

Hmmm true but idk when I tested it, it was a very noisy environment and im always in a noisy environment and I felt that I need more noise isolation, but im going to give it a think smily_headphones1.gif

The momentum are very good for noisy environments. So are the Amperior and HD25

This is debatable, as the M-100 with XL pads definitely have better isolation than the Momentum.

i'm curious are the momentums that good in isolation (when i was listening to it the store was quiet already so thats doesn't help)

 

it didn't have a tight clamp on my head at all. is it the bass on the momentums that help? actually thought it would be about even with the m100s (the m100s have more bass and all but that v-port does leak noise and out a bit)

When you say isolation are you referring to your isolation from the outside world or the isolation of the outside world from your music? In the former case, the v-port is there for acoustic purposes and helps the sound significantly but doesn't really let any noise in. In the latter case, I can assure you that people can't hear what you're listening to unless the volume is way up.

When I tested the Momentums at 50% volume I was impressed at how well the isolated the sound i still could hear some people talking and the music playing in the background but still very good at around 60-70% I couldnt here any outside environment all just pure music. But I do have small ears and get a really nice fit. Another thing I noticed is these have very little sound leakage at full volume yes you can hear it but it's actualy not that bad conpared to the M100 and Xs.

sorry i meant isolation from the outside world.

 

tbh i hate to say this but its not really a big deal for me if my music leaks out cause 1) i don't listen to music loud enough to really make it leak (unless i'm using the original beats studios 2) theres so much background noise where i'm using them it won't really be heard anyway (subway, bus, walking around on the streets).

No reason to apologize for that, I feel the same way. We're not talking open-back headphones, a little bit of noise leak isn't a problem unless you're in a church or something. The M100, particularly with the XL pads, isolate incredibly well for my money. Better than the Momentums for sure.
