I didn't find the mikros 90s clamping force too bad, sure it was tighter than the yamahas but that also meant it had better isolation.

It was alrite for me for the first hour or two, but after that the signature Mikros pain came...:P

Very much liked the Yamaha with the velor pads...try it if u have a pair lying around.

I ended up selling my Mikros 90s. They were great but i love my dt1350s more.
How do the velour pads affect the sound? My only hesitation with using velour pads is the reduced isolation that they usually give.

loss of isolation in my case is slight, cos the ad2000 suedepads are like flat pancakes...:P

hmmm...more neutral, less bouncing waves going on..less hall-ish..more studio room sounding.

Then i crank upppp the volume, n have a ball of a time :)

Hmmm sounds good, the hall-ish effect is a little bothersome sometimes. Any changes to the bass? I really like the stock bass response and would hate for it to change.

the bass quantity is as it is, slightly tighter i believe...but didnt thin out.   Definitely not a basshead can.

hi guys. 

 

I'm currently trying to decide between the Sennheiser momentums or the MT220's I was wondering whether you guys could help me out. Portability is only a convenience but not a necessity. I'm going to be using the headphones for a variety of uses like listening to music, watching TV shows on my pc and watching youtube videos which is my morning pass time.

 

On catchoftheday.com.au they are selling the MT220's for $129.99 but it won't last long!

I can get the momentums for the cheapest price I've seen in Australia for $235.

 

I want to note that I've owned the brown momentum's but I ended up getting a refund becasue I kept on receiving pairs with defect marks. however the black momentums may be better since they are newer. I'm quite a perfectionist with how I look after my stuff and I believe that I was worrying/caring too much about the condition of my headphones even while I was using them because to for me they were a bit too delicate.

I use my pair of MT220 for the exact purposes like you describe. I can tell you the MT220 performs great for these purposes.

 

For me, a laundry clamp is a necessary accessory for the MT220. I use it to clamp the springy cable to any nearby furniture to help controlling "springy" cable movement.

First off, thank you for replying. 

 

Secondly, do you think it's worth saving $95 to get the MT220's over the momentum's?

 

Or do you think the momentum's are worth every penny?

post #310 of 519
I think the momentum worths the extra only if you have more portable uses.

I think the mt220 have the advantage of bigger soundstage for your intended purpose. I used owning a pair of HD-25 ii and I think the mt220 is a better headphone.

I didn't really like the Momentums so I don't want to trash them (lol), in fact, I liked the On-Ear Momentums more than the original "Over-ear" ones (they were very uncomfortable to me) If you don't mind the "bullkiness" (in comparison with the Senns), the Yammies are a good buy, and at that price, even more!

The MT220's are clearly the better deal, at the catchoftheday price you won't get a better bang for your buck than that plus they're much more comfortable. However if you don't mind spending more the momentums are a better all rounder being great at home and as a portable, if they fit your ears that is. I've owned both the brown and black ones, I found the brown earpads stiff and uncomfortable where as the black ones were much softer and much more comfortable. That being said the brown pads did look a lot better out of the box, the pads on my black pair looked kind of old and faded even tho they were brand new.

I think the MT220's oozes "sturdiness' rather than bulkiness :)

I've actually tried them on before and even tho they are a bit bigger, they are remarkably a slim profile on my eyes.

 

I would buy the momentums however the reason why I'm hesitating is for a personal reason. I believe that becasue they are a more of a "delicate" headphone with having the steel headband, leather accents and exposed wires. I believe that I'm going to care too much about the cosmetic condition of the headphones becasue I'm a perfectionist with OCD tendencies. To the point that I think I'm going to look after it like a baby. 

 

this is a sensitive topic I can confirm that I have owned a pair of brown momentum's but I ended up getting a refund becasue after going on the "replacement train" for a little while. The defects and imperfections that were on my pairs drove me crazy. 

 

the only con in my eyes is the coiled cable, has someone modded a pair of MT220's to have a detachable cable like the M50's becasue that would be perfect :)

If I'm mainly going to be using the MT220's at home is the MT220's the better sounding cans?
