I just picked up the Sennheiser Momentums because they were on sale for $300 (a rare occurrence in Canada). They are very pleasant but since everyone seemed to compare them to the Amperiors I picked up a pair of those as well (to AB with the Momentums). After extensive listening there is simply no way to get around the fact that the Amperiors are significantly better. They almost give me reference quality sound out of my iPhone (CD lossless files of course). That said, I've GOT to have the Amperior's but can't find them anywhere for less than $350 (which, without a case, makes them MUCH more expensive than the Momentums). I found the Amperiors for $200 (refurbished) and was wondering if anyone has an opinion on whether I'm taking a risk with a refurbished headphone. The answer might seem obvious but some refurbished products (like Apple) may actually be a better bet (in terms of quality control) since you know they have been fully checked out and vetted. Any thoughts????
