Sennheiser Momentums or V MODA Crossfade M-100

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, so I have been considering these two headphones. I listen to a fair mix of music genres, but to point out a few they are: Folk/Indie Folk, Daft Punk and a little bit of rock.

 

From what i have heard, the V-MODA has more bass than the Momentums, while the Momentums are better for the vocals and stuff. So I am not too sure in which better suits my style of music. Thanks in advance.

Well, personally I love the look of the V-Modas and they're built like tanks and very comfy. I tried out a friend's on a bus ride back from a squash match and really enjoyed them

If you're into vocals and indie music, neutral may be the best to suit your needs, so you don't cover up the vocals with excessive bass/highs etc.

Maybe rolled off treble will suit your needs to, something that's bass+mid "centric". (People call this "warm")

 

I listen to a lot of slow paced acoustic music, and I find that a flat frequency response suits my needs really well.

I think @ShearMe listens to tons of indie / rock / folk / acoustic music, he wakes up anytime now he should be able to help more.

 

Are these two cans your only options?

Out of those two i would lean VModa, they are just better, but the 1R seems to be a better fit for you.

Thanks for the reply.

 

Firstly I am into vocals and indie music however I also do listen to a lot of Daft Punk and house music. BUT from what you have stated I think the "warm" sound can suit both types of music.

 

Secondly these two headphones I have considered due to their design and, from what I have heard, "good" sound quality. However if you have any other suggestions that suit my needs that would be great. 

 

PS. I have considered the ATH M40x but they seemed too big and I didn't really like their design.

What's your price range? I don't think you put it in the OP

Pst, 1R, because it does the thing that he wants. Imply $350 budget, its a solid plan.

Why headphones? Go get Senneheiser IE80, here they cost around 190€ and sound better then the momentum and are more comfortable.

If it must be headphones for some reason, get the V moda I guess.

I can purchase anything from $200 to $400. So anything that fits my needs within that price range would be fine.

The reason for this is that I already have decent In-Ears, and I thought that headphones would deliver better sound than in-ears.

No, headphones do not necessarily deliver any better sound. that is true for studio grade headphones, but in the hifi league you can be stay comfortable with decent earbuds.

I guess you'll have to try for yourself, but I would spend that much money on something "more important in life" lol.

For indie/folk/vocal I wouldn't get the IE80s as they're very bass heavy. I actually own both the IE80s and the Momentums and I prefer the Momentums for most kinds of music.

The best thing I have done is to get a pair of custom silicone sleeves for my IEM's, I had them made so they fit most IEM's with the 4.5mm nozzle. Right now I am using them with a pair of JVC FX700, but I have used them with JVC J33i, Brainwavz S1, Some random Sony's, cheap ass HiSound Audio ones and many more. What is special about these... they fit my ears perfectly, I get a better seal and deep insertion every time. Also they are super comfortable, more comfortable than any other IEM I have tried.

 

They look like this:

So if you go IEM route, this is one of the things that will make things a lot more comfortable.

 

Otherwise, between the Momentum and the V-Moda, I think it is a matter of preference. Basically go out and see if you can listen to them both somewhere. Preferably A/B test them to see what floats your boat more. You are the one going to listen to them, not us.

Momentums don't seal well on everyone's head, and will sound kinda meh if you don't get a good seal.

Where you get those? IEM use is something I'm becoming more and more interested in.....

I have thought about IEM's but I don't really need them as I consider my CX270 good enough for me. 

 

Also I do not know where I can try out the V-Moda M100, I live in Sydney, Australia.

I went to my local audiologist, you know the place where they make hearing aids and stuff like that. They will make a mold of your ears. Remember to bring some IEMs which they can model the entry for the nozzle (I used J33i's).

Am I going to need new IEMs afterwards?  :rolleyes:

There's only one store i know of that sells the M100s in Australia but their located in Victoria which doesn't really help you, but my friend has them and I've used them and their great headphones no matter what but there tuned more for bass heavy music like bigroom and dubstep but also still have a lot of clarity. I'm actually saving up to get the M100s myself it's just depends on if you'd prefer cleaner bass or clearer vocals.

Recently, I got recommended the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros and I am slowly shifting directions towards them. The adjustable bass and the customisation of the product really caught my attention.

You guys tried the Mad Dog from Mr. Speakers? I tried them and they were nice.

They actually look pretty interesting, that adjustable bass port is really smart idea the only thing i personally don't like is that there quiet large headphones and they don't fold up into a carrying case but sound wise they seem better than the M100s.

Yeah, the only thing holding me back is the size of it.
