Indeed they are quite good. My initial impression is only meant to bring them in perspective and offer a balanced description. I do prefer them over the Momentums because they are just as versatile and feel "faster", more authentic, less subdued with good body. The soundstage for a portable I am sure is quite good and I prefer them over the other phones listed, as everyone else seems to.
I am happy with them so far and will give a small update as I continue to listen and test out their isolation.
+1 to your bolded words. Wonderful body. Very full sound. No veil, and never sounding muddy, boomy, honky, sibiliant or fatiguing to me. Just very engaging. And for on ears, I can't believe how comfortable they are.
