Hi i have both the momentum 2 and the hd25 (modified by custom cans with cable/pads and damping) - i listen to both and find that:

1. the momentum seems technically better
2 the hd25 is far more involving, lacks the detail of the momemtum but drives the music far better
3. my conclusion is that the momentum seems boring and bland in comparison

My listening was with cayin n3pro using both triode and ultra linear modes.

I would be interested in any observations.

Sounds like the Custom Cans mod really makes a difference with the HD25
Its not like a different headphone but it seems to make the bass cleaner and slightly deeper and the damping has an effect on the smoothness and depth of the music (imo) the cable makes a difference from the steel original.
Altogether a worthwhile (and reversable) mod that is inexpensive (even if they do it for you - i did it myself on my hd25 but not on the my aluminium as i could not seperate the parts easily)
