I am searching for a new pair of closed-back headphones to drive on my Smartphone or Ipot Touch 2G and have already been able to narrow the results down to the two headphones mentioned in the title. The question I face now is: Which one should I select?
I wonder if the Shure is really a match for the Momentum, as far as sound quality is concerned, as a price difference of 130 Euros is quite considerable, to say the least. I definitely do not want 130 € extra just for the better-looking Design and more expensive materials, if the sound quality turns out to be worse.
And from what I have come to understand, the Shures do outweigh the Momentums in terms of soundstage, instrument-seperation, frequency range, presentation of deep-bass, when needed, and more clarity in the high frequencies, without creating beyer-peaks.
Is this correct? What do the experts say?

PS: I have to apologise for my bad English writing style here, as I am a little out of practice, when it comes to forming proper sentences. I hope it is understandable, though. ;)
