Good: Excellent sound.
Bad: You will hate your Iphone.
Comment: Finnaly got my Momentum. It sounds espetacular, indeed. As you´ve problably already know by reading other reviews, the sound is very well balanced and detailed. BUT, you will learn to hate your Iphone. All the defects the sound output will become more evident than ever. All my tracks are or uncompressed or have a high bitrate. Sometimes, using the iphone, you might think you have defective headphones, as the bass can be distorted. When listening to the same tracks at my sony music player, than the quality is amazing, a rich sound will fill your ears, and the distortions are unexistent when uncompressed, or almost imperceptible when compressed at a higher bitrate. s
Good: amazing sound
Bad: The Carry case (it's a hassle to carry around )
Comment: when i bought these cans little did i know i was in for something special now they ma not be an audiophile quality cans but then they make the music listening all the more exciting by making the sound stage wider and then still reproducing the punchy bass in the right amount and the mids are extremely polished....worth recommending to anyone who is serious bout their music..!!
Good: Stunning look, seems durable, good soundstage and details
Bad: Boring sound for long use
Comment: I like the way it looks and sounds, just found the sound really boring after hours of use, nothing special.
Good: Good noise isolation (not cancelling), great comfort, light weight, breathtaking sound
Bad: So far none
Comment: I registered this account just to write the review on this pair of headphone. I have been searching for the perfect pair of headphone for years, the pair has the sound, the looks, and comfort, the all-in-one. I have owned the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 and other noise cancelling headphone, they all lack one of those three elements, not the total package, until I discovered this. Momentum has great comfort level, its leather ear cushion feels awesome on your ears. The weight is suprisely light, you won't even feel it, great for traveling. It has noise isolation not cancelling, but personally, I have tested it in he subway, coffee shops and on the streets, it blocks away most of noises, let you enjoy your music. As for the sound, I have lost words to describe how good it is. I rarely write reviews, this might be my first one and last one. If you are searching for the perfect headphone, I would say to give Momentum a try, you won't be disappointed!!
Comment: It magically disappears leaving you at the center of a concert enthralled with music.
