Do you want a legitimate upgrade or are you looking for a flavour change?
I just want something as good as the momentum,. Same resolution, that does all the genres well (at least the ones i mentioned), with better fit and if possible a option for outside use would be great as well. I did not pick this headphones randomly, in terms of price (all of them do not exceed the 170 euros mark), sound quality and versatility they simply seem to be the better options to match the momentums....
I dont have many complains about the momentum.... Soundwise my only complains were the lack soundstage and the lack of some energy on edm (they are a bit to laidback for edm although having a good amount of bass...), but i could easily live with this because they made most of the genres sound awesome and the resolution is the better i heard so far.
What really killed it was the fit. I have 67 mm ears... they are only 3mm bigger than the average size male ear...Most part of the ears was inside of the cup but just a tiny tiny bit remained outside and with a bit of movement i always had the feeling that i did not had a good fit on both sides and this resulted in a impression of defective seal.
Believe me i wanted to keep them, i really wanted to keep them.... they sound and look amazing, they have fantastic build quality but every 2 minutes (on the first 10 minutes it felt ok...) i was readjusting the headphones...
Mike (hifiguy528) i can try the k550 but i have no amps... In one of your videos you claim to love bass, so my question is are the akgs able to deliver good sound quality straight from a 4th generation ipod touch? will they do the genres i mentioned well and will the bass be enough for edm (fun like the hd25's for example)? are they on the same level as the momentums in terms of resolution and overall sound quality?
Thank very much to you all for your patience... you guys are amazing... :)
