I own both
At £250 quid neither are the best in the price range. I certainly wouldn't even consider buying the M100 at their current price especially when you can get the superior D600 for £199. The M100 where at £180 on amazon a few weeks back and I would say this was a more suitable price but phones like the DT770 best them which you can get for cheaper.
The Momentum are more focused on Mids than the M100 which a much warmer and thicker tone. The M100 are lacking in that musical feeling in the treble and mids but they have great Bass. The momentum are warm and balanced with good bass so they are quite versatile.
For you music taste I would look into(if you are considering others
Denon D600 £199 I prefer these over both the M100 and Momentum
M100 if you can get them for £180 but even at that price i'd still pick the Momentum and Denon over them.
If those don't interest you I would get the Sennheiser Momentum at it's current price of £230
Did you amp them? If the DT770 are not amped they sound flat. Amped with even a cheap £15 Fiio E5 they become one of the most musical, fun and bassy phones out there.
The D600 take what the DT770 does best and does it better. The Bass is very strong, probably one of the strongest bass phones I've heard. it's an upgrade but whether it's significant is up to you to decide, I believe it is. thing is when you get to Midfi many phones are on par and most are just a change of signature. I would class the Denon as upper Midfi and the DT770 around the middle.
