Also I think that the c421 in general is a really great amp ;)

 

w/ what opamp? Sounds like the AD8610?

It's the AD8620 ;)

I haven't heard the OPA 2227 but I'm very happy with the 8620.

So out of these and the B&W P5's, what would you guys recommend?

Momentums. But I'm biased. smily_headphones1.gif

I use mine in the office too. Only complaint, like has said before, the carrying case is pretty big.

So I ended up getting the Momentums. Went to the Apple store and they had momentems on display but not the P5's. So I got to actually try the Momentums and liked them, and although I would of liked to try the P5's too, their mixed reviews combined with the strong reviews on the Momentums kind of sealed the deal.

Enjoy the music! I think you will really like them.

Already liking them!

When I went into the apple store a girl came up and asked if I needed help. I told her I was trying to decide between the P5's and the Momentums, she proceeded to try to sell me some Bose headphones...

When she started saying "Well if you like the Sennheisers what I would recommend is.." I was expecting some sort of Beats, but nope, Bose.

While I think the Momentums share some sound signature traits, I consider the Momentum to be the better sounding headphone overall. The P5 has some advantages over the Momentum mostly regarding portability though (the cups rotate to flat and are much smaller, the case is smaller, the microphone housing is much smaller etc.).

Yeah that's what swayed my decision to the momentums in the end. The general consensus from the reviews I'd read was that the momentum have better sound (than the P5), and while the P5 offer benefits in terms of portability, I will be carrying them in a backpack so it's kind of a non-issue for me. I wore them for a couple of hours this afternoon and I'm quite impressed.

Congratulations! The P5 does not compare sound wise to the Momentum unfortunately, so you chose wisely :)
