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 :)
