Hello fellow Head-fi'ers!
I was hoping to reach out to someone who has experience with both the Sennheiser Momentum (Over-the-Ear) and the PSB M4U1 because I don't have the luxury of hearing these headphones side-by-side. I recently gave my sister my Shure SRH-840's (because I'm a nice brother!) which I used to use as a portable headphone, and now I've been using my Sennheiser HD600's on the road. Great for me, maybe not everyone else around me. I absolutely love the sound and comfort of my HD600's and was hoping for a "similar" on-the-road headphone but not expecting to match the over-all quality of the HD600. I also own the HiFiMAN HE-400's which I'm selling (PM me if interested) so I can purchase these headphones and because I think the HD600 is a superior headphone everywhere except the low-end and (maybe) the width of the soundstage. Anyway...
My biggest concerns in order are: Comfort > Sound Quality > Durability > Portability.
Music Sources: FiiO X3/E12 and Schiit Magni/Modi
Music Types: All types of Rock, EDM/Techno/Dubstep/Trance, Classical, Rap, just about everything except for Country
What I've heard/read:
Comfort - I've read that comfort for both are quite good, but some users have issues with the size of the ear cups. Which pair has the LARGER ear cup? Which one has the softer padding? My HD600's fit and feel perfect as a comparitive.
Sound Quality - I've read that the M4U1 sounds better and more natural.
Durability - I've read the Momentums are much more durable with less plastic. (I prefer the look of the Momentums as well)
Portability - To me it looks like the M4U1's are a little bulky, but I have no idea!
Any and all feedback is appreciated as always! And thanks in advance!
