i liked the momentum, but the es700 has better soundstage, tighter bass and smoother overall sound.

If you are brave enough to do a little modding from this post:

You will be rewarded with a lively sound where ALL instruments and vocals are floating outside the headphone space and soundstage is expanded in a airy way .
Also the resolution is accentuated as drivers are more "free"
The mod also tames agressive bass and you have a refined extendid bass.
The reward outweighs the effort as the mids are clear and majical.
I had the ws99, es10 anf w1000x ... gone...no need.
I still have my esw9 wich are just as special modding in a diffefent way, as they have detail but these es700 remain more magnified in details and more liveliness. Different signature.
These two are only on ears I can recomend.
Check my profile for my headphone history.
Only cans left for me to get are the esw11.
Only major on ear can I didnt own was the momentums,
But I did A/B them agianst my es700 before..
Ooo forgot the new Kef m500 & the expensive edition 8 tongue.gif
Oh well theres always another can lol
