I don't understand why anyone thinks the Momentums are over-priced.
From what I've heard (with my ears pressed against many headphones) it seems very difficult for most companies to produce really good sound from a closed headphone - but the Momentum pretty much nails it and then wraps it in premium materials.
The market is obvious: an easy-listening sound for almost all genres, directly squarely at suits. Bankers can't be seen wearing beats pro, or fantastic plastic HD25-II or M50's. These are the competition for B+W, and in their market they blow all competition out of the water.
There aren't many companies using leather, and then leather of this quality. It's just luxurious, and luxury does cost.
