Introduction/ Momentun over-ear

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm Nikokuno, French (so sorry if I make mistakes).

I'm kind of new in the hi-fi world, I currently have a Audio Technica ATH-T500 (my very first step, there is 2 years), a Yamaha EPH-100 (which are awesome) and to finish a brand new Sennheiser Momentum, the classic one (1 day old).

But to be honest, they hurt my ears a lot after 30-40min, I think to send them back and I want some advices, I love everything in the Momentum but feeling uncomfortable wearing them is a nonsense... So I'm looking for over ear (real over ear...) with great build quality, great SQ, not interest in basshead headphone.

I used to listen Hip-Hop/rap, Funk, Dico, Soundtrack from Video Game, Electro (a bit), some time classical music too.

Thanks reading me.

M100, if you like bass. It's quite dark, but good rhythm and drive.

Yea, but the M100's are kind of small earpads, similar to the Momentums. So he may have the same problem w/ them getting uncomfortable after only a short amount of time.

I just tried it again: it's nowhere near so small as Momentum, but he can always use the XL pads.

Holy crap I went by Best Buy today and looked at the momentums.  I thought it was a joke.  They are incredibly tiny.  I'm looking to upgrade from Sennheiser HD 280pros.  I was looking at the nad hp50 as well, but now I'm worried they will end up being small as well.

Yeah, I remember the time I saw them. The headband isn't fragile even though it's so light, but the I looked at the cups and thought, "How am I going to put these on?" And the fit didn't really bother me--it still wasn't over ear--but I couldn't see myself wearing it. Sounded good though, like a mini-HD650.

Not yet. The photos and measurements on the thread indicate that it's close to ATH-M50, presumably with deeper earcups.

Looking at those and the AKG K550 just because of the size.  Just worried about the comfort as I suffer from migraines.  These HD 280pros sound great but clamp down pretty hard and comfort is a major feature for me.  The Sony MDR 1R is another option but many don't like the overall sound.

Thanks y'all, the more I think about it the more I'm wondering if 'portable' is a solution, but I definitively can't wear a full size headphone when I'm out cause of the cable length.

I already planning to visit some store to the headphones you advice for me, even if some of them are pricey.
