Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Around-Ear (Over-Ear M2) / Momentum G / Momentum i

Shure SRH1540 Premium Closed-Back

Most headphones we test tend to have a moderate-to-intense bass response, so reviewing a pair like the Shure SRH1540 almost comes as a shock. Few headphones can extend down as low as 5Hz and yet deliver accurate bass response that doesn't boost the...
