I am new to this forum and have read posts and reviews for a while. Information here is fantastic.
Yesterday, I went to BB and tried the Sennheiser Momentum over the ear and on the ear in side to side comparisons. There was a difference in the sound quality between the two. I noticed that the over the ear unit slightly better at noise reduction and smoothness in mid and treble; both have very strong bass with the over the ear slightly ahead. The differences many have been due to volume not being exactly the same. I was unsure about which one to buy. BB did not have the on the ear in stock and I did not buy the over the ear. I have three headphones on my watch list: both the Senns as above mentioned and the Beyerdynamic DT1350 which is under $200 now. I have not had the chance to hear it.
I would be using the new phones for jazz, progressive rock (Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, etc.), and classical. I may want to jog with them on as they sound better than the RHA MA750. I have no problem with the RHAs just wanted something different.
My questions: Is the $100 difference between the over the ear and the on the ear Senns worth the money? How do these compare against the DT1350s? Does anyone know if a President's Day sale on the Senns would be worth waiting for?
