As an amateur audiophile I know the word "Beats" shouldn't be thrown around...but even some of the people here are saying the new 2013 Studios aren't that bad. I've narrowed my options down to the Studios and Sennheiser Momentum, as I'm looking for something that looks good and delivers good audio.
So from what I've read, the Momentums deliver better audio but the Studios are stronger build and...yeah I'll say it...better looking.
And so the question arrives...are the Momentums that much better quality than the Studios to warrant buying, or is the difference to an amateur so minimal that there's really no big deal here? (the prices are the same where I'm getting them, cheaper than the main stores).
Or are the Studios (I repeat, the NEW 2013 ones as opposed to the terrible originals) still lacking that balance needed, and the slightly uglier Momentums better choice?
(PS I'm asking because there aren't any stores with a display model around where I live)
