Then you like good vocals.
The es700 is tops for female vocals.
The sony 1r good choice for comfort but less bass more softer mids.
The dt1350 may be too small a tiny cup for your ear or too flat a sound.
The hd25 may be too "V-shaped" and have too much treble for you, although it is a fun sound and not sibilant.
The m50 may be just too large for portable use.
The m80 is sweet but slightly less defined and small cups like dt1350 a notch lower in sound to both.
Although I owned those mentioned, I tried but did not own a momentum and found small earcup as well similar to dt1350 in size but better than both m80 & dt1350 in comfort.
Its sound was similar level as l both of these and better than the hd25 but still short of the es700 in vocals and livelier sound.
The ws99 a warmer darker dryer sound but larger bass.
So its hard to go wrong with these es700 as they are the "earsuit" line wich is supposed to be higher quality than the "ws" line.
You want better or step up from es700 then es10 not others mentioned.
Thats my impression, yours will vary..
