I think not overrated, but more suitable for pro or producer who is monitoring / DJ mixing / rocking.

 

I won't ever use the HD25 for monitoring/mixing. No no. Other than its 'portability' and good sound isolation, I don't see any other merits there.

Anyone know how to put the pads back on, the manual isn't much help and mine fell off.

No only one did.

You start at the top and work your way around the cup. Either direction, it doesn't matter. Make sure to put pressure on the side that is in already so it doesn't slip out when you are pulling on the other side.

Mine are on the way. Looking forward to them and will be doing comparison with the UE9000, D600 and TMA-1 and hopefully K551!

its subjective matter, but at least somehow to right professionals it works

for me, im not a hd25 fans.

 

* i began to realize why technically inferior Beats, sell like rocks. And old manufacturer begin to follow DRE's path.

eyecatching with fun sounding.

lol do rocks sell well?

anyway yeah most people listen for fun, and beats do give fun. expensive muddy fun that is. though still fun at its core. though some people have developed tastes and like to listen to neutral. but personally i prefer the open backed offerings over the HD25-II. it just sounds much better

i think it should do well, but the V-moda M100 will probably do better with that with its more fun sound signature and more powerful bass

I have a pair of Momentum's that I'm keeping because it is a great combination of comfort, convenience (I do like the in-line volume controls), and generally very good sound, but I find the bass overwhelming on certain tracks (particularly for those genres that emphasize bass already).  I've never heard a Beats headphone, nor do I want to, but I cannot imagine enjoying a headphone with more bass than the Momentums (more focused, punchier bass, yes, but certainly not more muddy, bloated bass).  I really wish some manufacturer would issue a model like the Momentum (or any of the recent "lifestyle" headphones like the P5, Fidelio, etc.) that put more emphasis on detail and clarity and a bit less on warmth and bass.  I was interested in the V-Moda M100 because of the design (the one real weakness of the Momentum is that it doesn't fold and therefore not easy to travel with), but once I heard it was even more bass-emphasized, not interested.

Are you getting a good seal with the Momentums? If the pads are resting on your ears rather than your head, you will experience less 'detail/clarity'.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Momentum Listening!  L3000.gif

Very interesting description about Momentum. 

Looking forward for comparison with M100
