Yes, now I understand what you mean. I had also forgotten your love for neutral headphones.
But just to understand you better, what did you feel warmer, the UE or the AKG?
And, did you feel like something was missing or was boosted in the AKG?
Apart for the fact that as a basshead I was missing bass (because as you noticed I look for it), I also felt that the highs where too present. Did you have this impression too?
The UE was definitely much warmer. The AKG was neutral leaning towards bright. I wouldn't say the highs were boosted but they certainly weren't rolled off or reduced and there was a touch of sibilance in them as well. It didn't bother me but I can see that how some people would find the treble fatiguing.
I ended up buying the Symphony 1. Wasn't perfect but got tired of waiting so will deal with its headband comfort and bluetooth range issues as they are much easier to deal with than ear cups that don't fit for me. Before that I had the HK BT which I got quite cheap off a mate who wanted something with more bass. They boosted the bass as well a fair bit but they did it much more naturally than the Momentum WIreless and the bass didn't really take over the sound to the same extent so I have been using them while I waited for something else. They though have serious comfort and clamping issues which have bothered me enough to upgrade as soon as something else came along.
