    Bowers & Wilkins P7 or Sennheiser Momentum

    Thanks for the feedback, I'm very thankful! I've been doing a lot of research lately, and I decided to go for the HP50s. The sound is fantastic, but I have some comfort issues. They are kinda shallow, so my ears are squeezed slightly, which causes some aching over long time sessions. Also it...

    Review by 'commodent' on item 'NAD Electronics VISO HP50 Noise-Isolating Over-Ear Headphones'

    These headphones sound extremely well for the price range, but they might get uncomfortable over time depending on your head/ears. When I use them I feel the pressure coming from the top of the of the pads, and on the bottom they are not properly sealed. My ears also stick out a little bit, so...

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 or Sennheiser Momentum

    Okay, but will I hear very big improvement in sound when I upgrade to B&W P7, or is it just a matter of details at this price range?

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 or Sennheiser Momentum

    Now I'm using the Audio-Technica ATH M50, and I mainly listen to electronic music. I've had them for over three years, and I thought it was a nice time for an upgrade

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 or Sennheiser Momentum

      Yes, I'm talking about over-ear. I see I can get the NAD Viso HP50 for $231, which I guess is a fairly good deal?       No, I have no possibility to test the headphones, as I live in a pretty small town.

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 or Sennheiser Momentum

    Hi, I'm having a hard time deciding between these two headphones, and thought I could seek you for advice.   Here in my country the Sennheiser Momentums cost $270 / £173 / €221 while the Bowers & Wilkins P7 cost $408 / £261 / €334. I therefore wonder which can would give most bang for the...

    Ordered these cans for £200. Hope it's worth it.

    @Zalithian I don't think it's smart to compare these with the power hungry headphones HD600 and HE-400 to explain the significance of amp, because, you know, they need more power.   @willyvlyminck I'm not expecting it to be twice as good, only worth the £100 more it costs, made in China or not...

    Source is probably not the problem, as the computer got the newest Realtek audio chip and I'm listening to 320 kbps on Spotify. The box even states that these are "made for ipod, ipad, iphone", and then I atleast expect it will sound good on my iPad. Amp should not be required as these are...

    Review by 'commodent' on item 'Sennheiser MOMENTUM'

    I will first start by declaring that I'm no audiophile, and that this is just a review coming from an average consumer. I know a lot of you will facepalm by my review, but I will post it anyway.   One year ago I bought the ATH-M50, coming from a Beat Solo HD headphone (yeah, I know). Although...

    Philips Fidelio X1 or Sennheiser Momentum?

    V Moda isn't for sale here in Norway, and M4U-1 costs £200. The NAD looks nice, I see it's for £200 over here. I'm just worried that I will be just as disappointed as with the Momentums, because they seem almost just as compact and I think that might affect the sound I want. Sennheiser HD600...

    What about AKG K551, then? I see it's on 36% discount over here

    Philips Fidelio X1 or Sennheiser Momentum?

    Yeah, when they are "made for" iDevices it would be nice that they actually sounded good on them. It's not a must that they are closed, but I want it to not leak so extremely much as I have other people living in this house, too. I do not want any big DAC/Amp, as I love sitting on the living...

    Philips Fidelio X1 or Sennheiser Momentum?

    Thanks for answering. Got my Momentums today, and surprisingly they fitted around my ear. What surprised me most was although how average they sounded. They sounded just like my ATH-M50s, which are much cheaper. I am going to take a look at HD600. Do you think FiiO E07K Andes will deliver...

    Sennheiser Momentum impressions thread

    At a quite big web store here in Norway. I see a person has given it a 3/5 star review in that store because of lack of bass and depth, while the treble is quite average, when everywhere else the sound-quality is rated as top-notch! Think I'm going for Fidelio X1, instead.

    Sennheiser Momentum impressions thread

    Got my Sennheiser Momentum today, and they fitted my ears despite I consider myself to have a little big ears. The strange thing is that I think they sound worse/the same as ATH-M50. Did I just pay $200 more for headphones sounding almost exactly the same?

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

      Going to use it primarily on PC, but some on the iPad and a little on the SGSIII. They sell the Dragonfly for $150-200 here. You don't think E07K wil give more for the money as it is bigger and battery-powered?   How do you think the E07K sound with X1? If you have those headphones, of...

    What's the best DAC/amp for this for under $100? FiiO E07K Andes?

    From how many meters (or feet) can you hear the sound of X1? Just wondering how much it's leaking.

    Yes, people have reported that it works, but I'm not sure if you need a special cable.

    Damn, I'm having such a bad time choosing between Momentum and X1 :( Do you use DAC/amp?

    Sennheiser Momentum impressions thread

    Are these good for home use? I'm using my headphones about 90% at home and 10% outside (maybe less). I have no DAC/amp and have no plans buying one, so are these headphones a good choice for me?   Does the Momentums feel uncomfortable after long-time sessions although the ears don't fit...

    Philips Fidelio X1 or Sennheiser Momentum?

    Doesn't work editing post so sorry for double post. I think I'll just go for Sennheiser Momentum and return them if they don't fit my ears, but I'm not sure. Would be nice if someone could suggest a pair of headphones that is not as open as X1 and not as compact as Momentum.

    How does the Fidelio X1 work without an amp or DAC?

    Philips Fidelio X1 or Sennheiser Momentum?

    Okay, but ATH-M50 was driven very well without an amp, and it was 38 ohms. X1 is only 30 ohms. I'm not going to use the stock cable, btw. I'm primarily using them in my home. I just wondered if I will disturb the other people living here when being in the living room, because that's pretty much...
