Based on Jude's description, I don't believe Momentum is a bright and sparkly as the D2000.  It also may have even more mid bass, but perhaps less sub bass.

Thank you Jude!

 

I think I'd still rather have the Amperior from an SQ perspective.  But damn these MOMENTUMs do look boss don't they?

Pretty sure it's out.  RazorDogDeals has them in stock I think.

I was hoping to replace my AKG K550 with these but looks like that is not the case.  Thanks for the review.

The one thing that irks me is that the cable looks very thin next to the Amperior. Not sure how I feel about that or if it'd be better off with a custom recable.

You said boosted bass, what do you mean? are you boosting the bass via amp?

post #22 of 3347
I think he's talking about the way the headphone is tuned itself (no amp) vs something neutral like a DT1350.

Excellent review and comparisons Jude! Definitely gives me a handle on how they sound. Can't wait to try them. Nice photos too btw.

Fantastic write up Jude! As a DT1350 owner I totally get what you're trying to say. My Momentum is on the way (should have it next week sometime). I think there might be a place in my rotation for them. I'm honestly sold on the looks alone. biggrin.gif

 

Btw. You mention fuller mids, but how full are they compared to the DT1350s? Specifically vocals. Also, did you also get a chance to evaluate the timbre and overall coherency?

 

Thanks

Would you happen to have pictures while wearing the headphone? I'd like to see the size if possible on head. Also what would you say about these compared to the parrot zik?

Brilliant review, Jude. Thank you so much for this. It's highly tempting to pick one up.

post #26 of 3347

Seems like they have the sound I'm looking for and I don't listen on-the-go but at home only  but I have a preference in such kind of sound, especially the thicker and bassier sound but more detailed and fullier mids and clearer than L1 and B&W P5 (which is even too warm for me), very nice start with one of the contender of the  "mid-fi portable wars" :D

 

I still need a FR graph confirming it has such a balance that I like though, optimally aprox 8~9dB boosted bass and neutral (or very slightly more forward in comparision to highs) mids & neutral non-emphasized highs :)

 

I have a feeling M100 will have a very similar frequency response balance like Momentum, will be very interesting comparision.

that's what I would also like to know
post #28 of 3347

At least there's a big difference in bass, the Z1000 by FR graphs doesn't have any bass emphasis to speak of, well it actually rolls-off quite a lot in the deep bass so it's quite basshy in comparision to Momentum by Jude's description. Then mids & highs I can't answer but at least you can question yourself, do I like more basshy or bass emphasized headphone which should rule out one or the other.

Honestly I don't know. I had AT M-50 and they had too much bass on the other hand I don't have a bassy headphone. I also need a very good isolating headphone so I'll probably get the one that does it better.

By the description by Jude it looks like Momentum is bassier than M50 as it's bassier than V-Moda M80 (which he referred to as more neutral) which has about similar bass quantity as the ATH-M50 about 5dB or so boost which I concider "entry-lvl" basshead. I'm guessing Momentum might be more in the 7~9dB bass boosted or so range. It sounded like Jude tried to "mask" the Momentum's relatively huge bass boost with as polite way of wording as possible around that (especially due his reference to this isn't reference material and it's good with bass boost for a portable headphone in a noisier environment), at least that's the impressions I got. I'm personally a basshead and probably searching for this kind of quantity as Momentum has though so I only read it as positive personally as M50 for example has slightly too little bass for my taste. :P
