What an absolutely cracking pair of headphones these on ear Momentums are! I've tried the original Momentums, AKG 550, AKG 451, Sony MDR 1R, Sennheiser Amperior, and Beyerdynamic DT1350 and I think these provide the clearest sound of all along with excellent comfort. Should be my final purchase of portable headphones with a bit of luck.

I've had the Momentum On Ears for a week now. They are paired to a FIIO E17 and my Galaxy S4. So far, I really like this set. They look amazing, have nice bass and crisp treble. NOW, I do have to tone down the bass a bit with Power Amp's EQ, but that is an easy fix. Especially since I like tweaking the sound depending on what I'm listening to. I listen to everything from Jay Z to Esperanda Spalding to classic Salsa and Latin Jazz. Love me some Johnny Cash too. LOL So my range of music is all over the place depending on my mood.

 

For comparison's sake, I have the B&W P5 and the Onkyo ES--HF300. I love my P5 because they are REALLY nice looking (in my opinion) extremely comfortable, have a great seal on my ears, and sound pretty good with some tweaking. Bass is actually cleaner and deeper in my opinion than on the Momentum on Ears. The Onkyo set sounds fantatastic with great highs, mids, and lows, BUT they are too big for commuting-in my opinion. They are a little uncomfortable to me and leave my right ear hurting after a half hour or so. These are actually going back to B&H today. After 2 weeks, I couldn't get them to fit right. 

 

The Momentums are a keeper at this point. I'm happy overall with them. And the tweaking of the bass to suit my choice of tunes on any given day doesn't bother me, and I actually enjoy it.

Momentum On-ear has answered the demand of what most people like, Bass. yes, the bass quality in On-ear is superb and excelllent for portable use as an average person but the crisp of overall mids and highs is still well-preserved. However, the boosted Bass might be suitable for Hip Hop, Modern music. Note that I think it is not suitable for Classical and Jazz or even some pop music, No way.

Finally picked myself up a Sennheiser momentum on-ear for $80 :P

 

So far my impressions are... they are probably the MOST comfortable on-ear headphone I have ever used... I guess this is due to the earpads being super soft.

 

However, the sound signature is not something I prefer... its too bassy and loose sounding and they don't isolate too well.

 

But overall, its not a bad sounding headphone, Im sure someone would appreciate this sound signature!

How would you compare the momentum on-ear to something like dt1350 or hd25?? Curious about this comparison..

Hey guys,

Was hoping for some feedback on these.  Xmas is coming up and I was considering getting a pair of Pink Momentum On-Ear for my girl.  She's mostly into pop and some Brit rock.  She's not really into hi-fi, but it bothers me when I see her using mediocre earbuds.  These worth the cost?  How's the SQ compare to the over ears?  Anything I should be weary of, build quality and the such?  Any other headphones I should be considering?

 

Thanks

hd25 , dt1350 and moe's sound signature were quite different , i'm not curious that someone like moe more than those pairs

i have use all three pairs of hp , moe bass is not very bassy , some times it seems to be over, but most of the time it was ok , i agree the isolation sucks but for loose sounding , what do you mean by that?

The bass is not very tight, kind of loose sounding with a lot of depth and warm

post #163 of 503
Agreed , it was not very tight , dt1350 a lot tighter but the have less impact and punch

But the dt1350 goes sooooo low :D

 

If you still own the pair, listen to Tiesto - Fresh Fruit. At around 2:30 to see how low these go. Enjoy!

Tyll rates this headphone very well.

 

I'm quite surprised since I thought Tyll always liked the neutral sound.
