Good headphones similar to the Sennheiser Momentum On-Ears in size?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Bought a pair of Momentum On-Ear headphones a few weeks ago, and even though the sound was great they weren't really comfortable at all. The pads were way too hard and I couldn't wear them for a longer amount of time.

Thus I'm looking for a new pair of headphones to bring with me everywhere, preferrably in the same price/size class as the Momentums, any suggestions?
I'm mostly going to be using these with my phone/laptop, as I already have a pair of HD595s for use at home.

Since you like the Momentum sound sig , how about the over ear version vs on ear ?
I was in the same boat and Momentum seems to be what I was looking for when away from home

I think the over-ear version would probably be too big, they're not that much smaller than the HD595s are they?

Smaller than the Hd650
The carrying case is big but you can always get a smaller one

The over-ear Momentums really aren't that big to begin with. If you have mid-to-large sized ears, they'll pretty much feel like an on-ear anyway. If you're not comfortable with that, try Sennheiser PX 200-IIs. I haven't tried them, but they are about the same size. I've had a shot at the Marshall Majors, which I'd say are fair if you break in the headband over time.

What about something like Bose QuietComfort 15? I guess you lose a bit of sound quality to the active sound proofing, but will it be much worse than something like the Momentums (on-ear)? I also looked at Marshall Majors, but they seem a bit uncomfortable. What about Philips Fidelio M1?

V-Moda M-100 with XL pads?

I used NAD hp50s for a while, they sounded amazing and never felt too large to me
