Can anyone help me with my choice pls?

Hi,
 
Beats headphones have a terrible reputation around here!
 
On the other hand Sennheiser Momentum seem to be a very good pick. You should also consider AudioTechnica ATH-WS99.
 
Best Luck

are you looking for a closed design headphone? To what device are you planning to connect the headphone? (ipod or computer)?
V moda M 80, M 100

stay away from Beats. They are not worth for the money that you pay.

+ 1 for the Momentums, thats what I've got their wonderful. If you choose to look anywhere else, the VMODA M100s might be worth a peek. That being said, I'd go with the Sennheiser Momentum cans.

Does the Momentum have also a good bass for listen to dubstep and drum and bass?

 
Well, I think it does, however the VMODA M-100s are generally considered to have slightly more robust bass and PRaT--they cater more specifically to electronic music and the like than the Momentums, which are suitable for just about anything.  If your looking to be 'shook' by the bass you may want to look elsewhere, neither the Momentums nor VMODAs nor really any audiophile headphones are going to have the boomy bass of Beats, which is a good thing.
 
I digress, I listen to quite a bit of dubstep & drum n bass. I'm a regular at EDC, listen to Andy C, Flux Pavillion, Dirtyphonics, etc. and my Momentums have always served me well. The bass has impact, is tight, and is not overwhelming especially when paired with a portable amp such as the C&C BH2 or FiiOs various entry-level models.  
 
The beauty of the Momentums is if you want to listen to, say, Enya or Dave Matthews or U2 or Andrea Bocelli the headphones still perform well, especially for closed back. Since I listen to a wide range of music the Momentums have suited me perfectly.

If you want powerful bass (but still good sound quality) you should also consider Yamaha Pro 500

  I don't know, Sony is cheaper but is the sound quality as good as the momentum or m100?

No. A $100 "extra bass" headphone will not outperform either the Momentum or M100 for SQ. Shocking, I know.
