Have seen the KEF's but not had a listen...look good in any case. Look forward to seeing some reviews on them. Still hoping that someone comes up with a solution to the earpod issues with the Momentum's as I just can't use mine anymore.

What happened to saving up for the TH900?

 

Anyways if you want comfort the Momentum isn't going to please unless you have small ears.

The TH900 are an entily separate entity. The M80 fell in the pool, and I need a new portable can. My ears are about 4.2 cm tall by 3 cm wide by 1.1 cm deep.

You likely have tried this already but I had good success by bending headband pretty severely to reduce clamp pressure.  Opened up soundstage quite a bit as well.

I went through all these tunes, and I can see you like tunes with a lot of really deep sub-bass (but who doesn't).
Momentums had no problem with that at all. While listening I was diving in the bass.
But it doesn't mean that mids or highs were missing. The sound was very clear.
All these tunes sounded very good and some of them even impossible!

The sub-bass is so powerful here. This song sounds amazing!

This one sounds nice, but personally I'd like to hear more sub-bass in that song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUA8OzQxGxE
Wow, superior sub-bass here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRVOOwFNp5U
Like this one:)

Again, amazing sub-bass.

This is what I call proper bass drum! At 1:20 music goes insane, and on these headphones it really sounds insane! Wow! I Love that tune!

I'm not a big fan of that kind'a music, but it really sounds astonishing on Momentums. Bass is there, and it doesn't go off.

Nice tune. Is it's purpose to test f-response of headphones? biggrin.gif

Bass, bass, bass everywhere:)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynVQD-b0qX8
Very clear male vocal here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGssAAItomU
Again, amazing sub-bass kick.

G! Man you make may addiction to these headphones even deeper:)

FYU I was playing the songs on my laptop, under Linux through Jack audio at 44.1 fixed rate without any boosts/effects, simply flat.
The bass response of these headphones is way better if earcups are placen on ear, instead over ear.
At the beginning you may feel uncomfy having them on-ear, but after a while in that position they are less pain than over.
They would be much less pain, if they used memory foam like some mentioned KEFs...

[edit]Just listening to Mysto & Pizzi on Beatport and it's not as much bass as on youtube. What is youtube doing with their clips?

Nice. I'm pretty much sold on the Momentum, unless the new JVC headphones are truly spectacular. Can the Momentum still handle the more "delicate" music, such as Ray Charles, Jackson C Frank, The Beatles, ect.?

BTW, I think I owe you mad props for listening to all of the samples!

You know, this is only my opinion. My may still want to try them before you decide. And as metioned at bottom, it is either Youtube that boosts bass & treble in all their clips, or maybe mpeg, or it is the CD's that are mastered to have more midrange. Dunno, what is the answer. Anyways the sound quality is good across the board:)

I sadly do not have the option to try before I buy frown.gif.

The issue is more that my ears don't quite fit inside the earpads - causing pressure on them for anything over 10 mins or so. Just got my Denon's through this afternoon - just having a listen now. Earpads are much more comfortable and fit is better.

I tried on ears, and in fact it's better that way, because they don't touch your pressure points. However ears get warm and red biggrin.gif Nevertheless, I'm wearing them hour after hour, so I'm either masochist, or it's not so bad.

Anyway, I plan to get KEF's - both of them!

BTW I just visited soundcloud. It's my first time there, so I'm exploring. Nice music and very good quality. Needless to say how well it all sounds on M's:) Listened dubstep, now some jazz, going to check more:) I'm not even any fan of these styles, but M's are so addictive, that you just keep listening stuff, not even thinking what stuff:)

Yep for me they're kind of awkward sized, don't quite fit on ear or over ear. redface.gif so they're uncomfortable both ways. Sitting here now for the past two hours with my 7100's with no issues.smily_headphones1.gif

Just bought one of the David Bowie special edition. My ears are quite big I think, around 70mm. At first it's quite uncomfortable: ears getting irritated quite soon. I had to take it off after one song or two.

 

But after 1.5 days of use, I think I'm getting used to it. I discovered a trick: I don't put it down to put it on, I lift it up to tuck my earlobes first to put it on. Hardly feel it whiling listening to music.

 

That said, if you're looking to buy it. Try it on first.

My wife got a pair of the Bowie Edition's and she loves them.

Alright. It's down to the Momentum Vs. the JVC HA-SZ2000 for my next audio related purchase. I just had one question: people say that the audio only cable on the Momentum has noticeably better sound than the remote/mic cable. Is this true? I have never really believed in cable sound.
