Hi.I'm looking to buy a pair of portable headphones and it comes down to these two(still open for other recommendations).
I can get the v-moda's for 170$, the momentum for 270$.. i like the momentum's design better.. but i'm willing to sacrifice that for the extra money.
I am interested to know which one is louder, has better bass, and a better overall sound quality.
The loudness is a very important thing to me, since i had the HD 439 previously, and returned them for not being loud enough, the sound quality was great though :(.
As a source i use either my phone, Htc One X, or my pc with Xonar DG soundcard (with the built in headphone amp).
I also had the Razer tiamat 2.2, those were loud enough when listening to them amped with my soundcard (much louder than the hd 439), but the sound quality sucked, and they weren't comfortable enough for me.(note that i wear glasses).
As for music genres i mainly listen to alot of dubstep, electronic music, metalcore, but also enjoy listening to latest top40 songs and many other genres.
