Just to clarify, I'm definitely not considering the over-ear Momentums because they're too expensive.

I haven't heard anything about the Fidelios being lively, everything seems to say it might be boring for some people.

Right - sorry - I just havn't heard anyone talk about the on-ear Momentum being uncomfortable. I'm assuming he's read about the full size one, and people's discomfort issues, and mixed the two up.

My favourite bands are all alternative rock - which pair of headphones out the 4 is the best for that?

I thought the L1 was excellent with Radiohead.

I also listen to alternative music, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Audioslave...

Don't know if you are interested in trying a Grado headphone, but they perform excellent IMO for rock genres, and for that matter I feel any genre. Keep in mind they are an open back design, so they do leak sound, but you didn't state that this would matter.

I forgot about the Grados. Oh, and the P3 is a useless bundle of garbage.

I'd like them to be closed or semi-open like the L1s. What's so bad about the B&Ws?

By the way, I only got "alternative rock" by Googling my favourite bands - Bastille, The Script, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay and Fun. The Wikipedia page for all of them said "alternative rock". I don't really pay attention to styles of music, I just like whatever sounds good.

The P3 is just about the absolute worst headphone to come out last year.

Massively over-rated and over-priced.

Maybe you should wait for the new Fidelio L2/M2 to come out before making any decisions.

You still haven't given any reasoning.

As I've said, too much mid to upper bass, no sub bass, no treble, muddy and congested sounding mids. The P5 are a bit better but still not that good. The P7 is great though.

I haven't heard the P7 yet. It sure looks beautiful.

If something is grossly over-priced, that's a pretty good reason if you ask me.
