I don't listen to those bands specifically. All I can say is that I auditioned both with a variety of music and felt the M-100 was superior with EVERY genre. For me, that includes pop, EDM, modern and classic rock, adult contemporary, 60's, 70's and 80's pop/rock.
And that's why I'm curious about the Momentum. >.>
Tyll commented in his YouTube comments:
From my experience, alternative rock sounds OK with the M-100. The vocals get a bit overshadowed by the bass at times, especially in Pearl Jam's albums, and the highest notes of cymbals are quiet, but it's passable. Imaging for binaural albums isn't too spectacular in my honest opinion, as I've mentioned with Pearl Jam's Binaural album.
I dunno, I suppose it depends on personal tastes, but I don't think rock is the M-100's strong point due to the large increase in bass that veils the lower-mids and the quiet upper-treble. I'm not technical in terms of music-talk, but people, including Tyll, have stated that the highest octave (whatever that means) is lacking with the M-100's. This might be the upper-treble that I'm referring to.
