hey guys!

 

I really need your help! i cant decide wich one of these amazing headphones i should buy.

I listen moustly to House, Rap, but also slower songs like ( Matt Walters - I would die for you | Fink - Perfect Darkness )

This headphone will moustly used in traffic, at and after school, on the bus.

I love it, when I can hear the tiniest highs (piano clicks and stuff) but also the good basses.

For example, I listen to Eric Satie in .FLAC

 

I know, this is hard, but please help, i cant decide!:L3000:

I've only heard the P3 and Momentums OE, so I can only give a comparison between the two.

Both are definitely bass emphasized but I think the P3 is more so. I do think the Momentum OE trumps the P3 slightly in terms of sound as it sounds clearer. The P3 tends to sound slightly veiled with the mid bass hump. Comfort wise, both are similar though I think Momentum OE may be more comfortable with the Alcantra material.

Thank you for the quick answer!
And how big is the momentum? Im thinking of buying a mixr because its small and maybe more portable

The mixr is more portable because the Momentum does not fold.

But the momentum trumps the mixr in sound quality (and style :evil:)

Yes the Momentum OE doesn't fold, so you might find it less portable. Although I think the P3 and momentum OE does win in style over the other two redface.gif

thank you guys, I really appreciate your help!

 

do you think its comfortable for walking? how about using it on the bus for example?

I picked up the Mixrs and, yes, the comfort is an issue. Sound, however, is not. Beats finally made a pair worth buying, and REALLY worth buying. Plus, sorry, they do look pretty slick.

 

What I've heard people do is stretch them over something for a few hours and BANG, no more head squeeze.

 

If your focus is on heavy bass with sparkly highs, I think you'd be damn happy with the Mixrs. They aren't gonna win contests on imaging or flat response, but they're not supposed to.
