just spent an hour with some cans....

Thread Starter 
The culprits were the Momentum, mixmaster mike and MDR-1R.
Long story short, MDR-1R > MIXMASTER > MOMENTUM.
The Senns were my biggest disappointment, they sound like syrup , muggy even , too much yawn , and are NOT around ear imo, very comfy though.
Mixmasters were surprise, bit peaky treble but enjoyable.
Sonys are very very good, not too bassy, sounded well balanced , comfy but got a little hot.

Nice! Would you say the Sonys are neutral or does the bass make them a bit too bassy for neutral?

Pretty neutral I would say, they didn't add any extra bass to the music I demo'd.

They really are lovely looking cans , nicer than the Momentums imo , the Momentums are really disappointing , remind me of the B&W P5, all form over function.

The Mixmaster's blew my mind , I have heard the aviators and thought they were pretty good but these are a clear step above.

The Mixmaster's are very musical , a little rough around the edges but very entertaining, a bit like a Polish street hooker (I am told).

Actually the Mixmaster's have left me very curious, the sort of curious my wife doesn't like, the sort of curious that leads to hasty purchases......we shall see....
