Hi all. I'm looking for some objective comparisons between these two headphones. It seems that people say that the MDR-1R is more comfortable but with slightly lower sound quality. The Momentum is said to be a bit small but sound better. I have average sized ears, so the Momentum might be uncomfortable, but Tyll thinks they are comfortable so I guess I have to try them. I was wondering which has better isolation, mainly for car and plane rides, with music playing. I would assume the MDR-1R, but there are vents on the top. Now that these headphones are similarly priced, which is the better buy? At the moment, I'm leaning towards the Momentum. Are there any other similar sounding headphones in this price range that I should consider? I listen to all kinds of music, mostly older hits. Thanks!
