Just getting caught up on this thread and wanted to reply to this situation. On my way to my Black Momentums, I went through 2 Brown pairs as well (nothing was really faulty with them but it was just a buy/return process that was complicated).
Brown Pair #1: Had exceptionally soft leather, seams did not bother me whatsoever. The leather was also very dark brown, almost blackish in some lighting.
Brown Pair #2: Had much harder leather, stiffer. Stiff enough that the memory foam didn't really work as intended. The seams on this one caused discomfort and a soreness on the outer ear after 1 hour or so. I immediately did not like these. Also to note, the leather on this pair was much lighter, almost a slightly dark football color of leather.
Black Pair: These were my 3rd purchase and they were what i wanted all along, the black that is. And thankfully, the leather was much like the Brown Pair #1. The leather was very soft and no discomfort from the seams. I can wear these for 6-7 hours straight without any discomfort.
