Which would have the best soundstage/ open and spacious feel among the top contenders here? Especially interested in your ranking od the P7, Momentum and HP50!

After watching this guy's video review of the HP50, I have to agree they look very much like nerd-cans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-0fO8VgqpQ

Yep, just sold mine as I couldn't wear them in public, just felt too self-conscious. Great sound, kind of goofy look, but for home use, I couldn't give a rats ass about the looks, sound rules there. Sadly for the HP 50s, I needed something even more capable for home use so I couldn't keep them even for that purpose.

I broke down and ordered the Fidelio L2 from Amazon Japan due to a great price $250CAD so probably around $300 landed. So will be posting some impressions when they arrive.

I am tempted to give them a go...might order them next week. I shall report back if I do. Great deal on the L2s...let us know what you think. :smile:

I found the P7s had an edge over the HP50s and then Momentums.

That's exactly why I returned mine.

Looking forward to your impressions! (especially in comparison with the m500's)

Well, I picked up a pair today of the newly released QC25s. They are very similar to the already excellent QC15s. I'll do some A-Bing them with my current portable headphones on hand (QC15, XS, T51p) and then I'll update them there. 

 

In case anyone is interested in a great deal on the QC15s (or the equally impressive MDR-10RNCs), please see my signature. :o

QC25!? :eek: I had no idea that existed. I just picked up a pair of QC15... maybe I should've waited. The QC20i has excellent noise cancelling, even better than the QC15, so if they incorporated some of that updated technology into the QC25, it would set the bar even higher.

I saw that. We'll see how that performs. What I can say about both the QC15s and QC25s is that their comfort and NC ability is un-rivaled. The Sony MDR-10RNCs do come close though. I might give them a run too.
