Good headphones similar to the Sennheiser Momentum On-Ears in size? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I heard good things about Yamaha's PRO serie, other than that I seem to recall seeing some velour pads for the momentum a while ago. Could be worth a try.

If you can afford them, the KEF M500 would be amazing.

All of these looks quite bulky and large (the V-Modas aren't available in Norway), I'd prefer something more of the size of the Momentum On-Ears.

I might consider getting the Momentum Over-Ear version, but something a little smaller would be better.

To be perfectly honest, you're going to be hard pressed to find earphones the same quality as the Momentum's in a smaller or equally small form factor. The Momentums are particularly small. You'd probably be better off getting IEM monitors

Don't mind if they're a bit bigger, just as long as they're not huge.

EDIT: What about something like Bose QuietComfort 15? I guess you lose a bit of sound quality to the active sound proofing, but will it be much worse than something like the Momentums (on-ear)? I also looked at Marshall Majors, but they seem a bit uncomfortable.
EDIT2: Or Philips Fidelio M1?

I bet the M1 is good, as it's big brother (the X1) is very good and very comfy.

The QC15's are pretty terrible compared to the momentum on-ear for SQ
