The Momentum sounds kind of similar to the ZMF (from memory) but is smaller/less comfortable. There are comparisons to the HD650 in the ZMF thread, and the HD25 never really appealed to me at its price range. It sounds weird. I'd buy it under $100, especially for EDM, but any more is iffy.
They sound pretty hollow. The time I use them now is for Skyping because they're my only mic'ed headphones. Out of all of those, I'd probably pick the PRO900, but I've only heard a modded one, and I haven't read great things about the stock version (though I haven't read too many great things about the D600 even though I didn't think they sounded too bad as long as you can get them for $250 refurbished). The M100 was fine to me (take this with a grain of salt because it was just a 10 minute demo) but retail is too high for the rather boring sound. I think the Momentum is too slow-sounding for house.
This simply is not true. The AH-D2000 from Denon is highly regarded and for the price especially after its initial release placed it into a class of its own. Many consider it to be one of the best closed headphones period. Just ask Headphone.com, Tyll Hetsens, etc.
I phrased that differently than I intended. I know there was always interest in the D2000 (I was even considering retrying them when they got to around $200 on Amazon's Warehouse), but I thought that the attention that it got after its discontinuation was kind of overdoing it. Not that it's a bad headphone, but I noticed people were paying upwards of $300 for a couple of months after it was discontinued, which I think is kind of high for what it delivered. I could have been underamping them with a Mini3, but the bass was kind of one-noted.
The best course of action for you is to try them all. I'm assuming you're in the US, so if you can find a Best Buy with a Magnolia station, you'll be able to try the Momentum and D600 yourself. I don't really know where you'd be able to try a PRO900, but the M100 is available to try at the Microsoft store if you have a local one. Honestly, my preferred house headphones are the bass-light Sony SA5000, so you could probably disregard everything I've said other than to try them for yourself because tastes can vastly differ.
