If you want to FEEL the bass, you'll simply need to turn up the volume up too high. 

Then after a few years you won't be able to hear the bass any more. But look on the bright side, you'll still be able to feel it!

Can you help me decide which then?

I feel the momentum's bass to be a little on the more mellow side. The on ears however have more punch to it.

Try the v-moda crossfade m-100; forget about beats.  I own both the momentum and m-100.  When I want a little more technicality and detail I go with the momentums and when I want more bass and little more fun I go with m-100.

Aren't the new beats supposed to be quite good? Not heard them...

 

Definitely NOT a fan of beats headphones but if the 2103 sound good I don't know... I wouldn't buy any beats out of principle but if he likes the look of them and wants headshaking bass... Maybe they will be OK no idea.... Anyway my recommendations are Denon or HIFIMAN or the Momentums - TBH the vmoda m-100 are not great in my opinion.

The new Beats are quite a bit better than the old Beats, but I wouldn't go so far as to say they are quite good in general.

Mmm sort of like saying being punched in the stomach is better than being punched square on the nose :)

A little bit :normal_smile :

 

On a serious note, I would never fault them for working to improve their product.  I'm just not ready to give them a thumbs-up overall, based on their most recent release.  It is a couple steps in the right direction, but it's just not quite there.

For the Momentum owners, when you twist the cable plug into the earcup, does it create static or imbalance of channels?  When I first opened mine, the left channel was a bit louder.  I thought it was just the song, but I tried others (and especially tracks I'm more familiar with) and noticed them as well.

 

I removed the cable from the earcup and reinserted.  It was then balanced.  However, when I twist it back and forth, it would create static and imbalance.  After messing with it several more times, it finally went away...like it had built up and was static-y.  Still, I can't shake the uneasiness that this may be a defective pair.  I want to know if anyone has experienced this with their pair.

 

Thanks in advance!

It is possible that you had some dirt, dust or slight oxidation on the plug or jack and shook it off or wore it off.

Thanks, I literally just bought them this afternoon and so I'm thinking of returning them.  Is this common and is it detrimental to the quality of the headphones?  Would you dismiss it or definitely get it exchanged?

I wouldn't be so quick to return them. Fiddle with it a bit once in a while for a day or two to be sure. Happens with plugs and jacks on electric guitars all too often. I would clean them with alcohol (Isopropyl not tequila - lol) and buff them with plain white computer printer paper. You might want to look at the plug on the cable for discoloration, I doubt that you'll find anything wrong or need to take any action since it's new.

Just exchange them.  The issue you're experiencing clearly isn't a common one.  Seems kind of a shame to judge an entire product based on one bad apple.
