Comparisons: 33 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around - Page 107

post #1591 of 4207
MacedonianHero,I've found you just change the comfort of P7 from 5 to 3.5, is that mean it is not so comfortable? Any details?

I myself have been looking for something with the comfort of a full sized but with more portability but options seems few and far between.

This thread (I think I mentioned it in my first post) was for closed/portable headphones for on-the-go only. So for now I suppose, I'd like to keep it on that topic. :o

 

Full sized and portables don't really mix IMO. Do you have any in mind?

I see no reason they can't mix. A lot of portables have just slightly smaller than full sized cups. Why not just bump that up a half inch or so for more comfort.

The Koss dj100 fit comfortably around my ear and fold flat for bag storage. I see no reason other manufactures don't follow that model instead of having a half assed compromise between comfort and portability.

They're about as borderline as I'd like to go with regards to size. I'd hate to start including headphones like the D7000s and TH900s in this thread.

Well the 1r is full sized, as are the HP50, H6, Beats (depending on what full sized is. Imagine the DT770 or ATH A900x! Lol!

Comfort wise, 1R wins. Sound wise, Momentum wins. It's a "higher end" headphone.

You're going to be happier with the 1R. The sonics aren't that far apart from the Momentum, but it's miles ahead in the comfort department, especially if you're someone with bigger ears. As far as imaging goes, I think that's something the 1R does better than the Momentum.

Subjective much.

 

Sonically I found them to be different enough, especially the Momentum's superior sub bass extension. Also if you're lucky enough to have ears like mine (around 65mm tall), you'll find them to be no less comfortable than the Sonys. 

 

Is it worth $40 more? Personally speaking "yes." Others with big ears will say "no."

Get over yourself. Are we really at a point where we need to put "IMO" in front of everything we write? You've been here long enough to know everything on this forum is based on personal experience. So, of course it's subjective. I'll fix it for you.

 

IMO, he's going to be happier with the 1R and find more value in it.

Hello,

Go for the 1R for more mids centric, smooth and detailed. 1R also offer wider soundstage, imaging, tighter bass. However, Momentum wins in deep sub bass and powerful. Momentum also offer more balanced and natural sound than the slightly colored sound of 1R. The Momentum will sound warmer and darker.

In terms of comfort, I find the 1R way more comfortable than the on-ear like feeling of Momentum as I have slightly bigger ears

If you want natural sound, go for Momentum. If you want wider soundstage, go for 1R.

Hope it helps

It is simple. Sound signature aside, the first determinant for choosing between Sony 1R and Senn Momentum will be your ear size.

Big ears --> 1R
