I would have gotten either the 11 or the 15, but a 15 appeared first.  I'm still curious to hear how the Sabre in the 11 sounds, but I am completely satisfied with my 15 so it's more idle curiosity.  Nice purchase IMO!

I want to upgrade my DAC, eventually, and may end up just going with a combo like the 11 or 15. Way down the road, though. Might end up getting one with one of those new SoundMAGIC HP150s for Xmas.

momentum OVER-ear earcup size is smaller than the the athm50. Smaller as in the diameter is smaller. however, the momentum earcups are made of nice leather so comfortable is not that bad. it's only an issue if you are the type of person with ever sensitive ears or are listening for multiple hours in a row. basically, the momentum over-ear is actually an pair of on-ear headphones for most people with normal sized ears. :)

I can't say, I never had the M50s to compare. The only other closed cans I've got are the PSB M4Us and they've got a much larger cup size. Basically if I "folded" my ears in they'd fit, but it was a very snug fit. I don't THINK I've got gigantic ears or anything, but maybe I do :)

 

If you can fit them comfortably though, they're excellent cans, especially at like the 200ish price I've seen them before

aloaudio.com is having a sale on some gear. Some of it shows up as on sale on the homepage but there are a few items I looked up that were discounted that didn't show as being on sale on the homepage. Might be worth taking a look.

If I knew it *was* an upgrade, I'd probably jump on it and sell my HP100.  I'm so happy with them, that I can't imagine the 150 being anything but a step up.    But no info anywhere...

Honestly, I probably would grab em myself, but I just had $13k in unexpected expenses come up and headphones are the last thing I need to be spending money on right now.  Speaking of which, I should probably unsubscribe this thread for a month or 6...

Seems like the same headphone as the HP100, at least according to the FR graph on the taobao page:

Its using the same driver with different cups, but supposedly tuned to have more bass. Also, the design, itself, is the same as its counterparts. At least the price is the same... unlike other companies I know of when it comes to their "upgrades"...
