    Are those the over the ear? How do they fit you?

    I tried a pair on at Bestbuy, and found that the earcups seemed a bit small. I'm not a big guy, so I never imagined myself as having large ears. It got me thinking that maybe Bestbuy had misplaced the on-ear model there.

    I'm looking for some over the ear cans and have been considering these. I really want some closed headphones, but just couldn't pull the trigger on these after demoing the open-ear sennhesier right next to these that were half the price...

    The over-ear Momentums are very small, that's the main knock against them. Also, this:

    It's a FiiO e18 Kunlun. Doubles as an amp and android/PC DAC. Pairs up nicely with the momentums.

    These are the over the ear model...had the one ear version for a day, and wasn't impressed.

    The over the ear models have pretty small cups compared to other over the ear headphones. My ears don't fit all the way into the cups, but they use a very supple material to line the cups, and they're extremely comfortable.

    I generally preferred the sound of the open ear sennheiser HD's, but the sound leakage is a deal killer for me since I use these primarily in the office. The momentums don't have the same airy soundstage as the HD's, but they don't nearly as much like sound waves in a vacuum as your typical closed back headphone. For a closed ear model they have a surprisingly open soundstage.
