Sennheiser MOMENTUM Black headphones Review

 

Earlier this year we got our first look at Sennheiser's MOMENTUM at CES , a lovely stark looking set of headphones made of metal and leather. Here in the summer of this year we've had our look and listen to the set, and right at the dawn of the...

Sennheiser Momentum Over-the-Ear Headphones

 

Sennheiser will always hold a special part of my heart as the HD580 my first audiophile headphone. I can still remember the soft velvety fabric of the earpads and the revelation that was quality music playback. Since then, I have experienced the sound...

Sennheiser Momentum review: Luxurious headphones worth the high-end price

 

Sennheiser may have a wide-ranging lineup of headphones, but it's never offered anything like the Momentum before: a high-performance, audiophile-oriented headphone that's been specifically designed for use with phones and other portable music players.

The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are an elegant full-size over-the-ear pair featuring a brushed stainless-steel headband and plush, leather-covered earpads. Sound and build quality are excellent, and the headphones come with a nice carrying case, as...

The Momentum headphones are pricey and don't fold flat for compact storage.

The Sennheiser Momentum headphones may not have enough bass to satisfy every taste, but they are in every other way the best-sounding full-size audiophile headphones we've heard in a long time.

Review: Sennheiser Momentum

 

Sennheiser's Momentum headphones don't just sound great, but they're also steeped in that same brand of cool as the best gear from 30 or 40...

Fantastic sound with superior isolation. So compact, so comfortable. High price is actually reflected in the build quality — a rarity among style-minded consumer headphones. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a photo of Steve McQueen wearing these, along...

Kostspielig. Not as compact as truly mobile-minded headphones. Not for vegans. Case is too bulky to throw in a carry-on

Sennheiser Momentum

 

We can add another pair to the emerging category of stunning, mobile headphone designs that Bowers & Wilkins and Harman Kardon have helped to define in recent months. But something feels different about the $349.95 (direct) Sennheiser Momentum—it...

Excellent audio performance, with no distortion at top volumes. Beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. Built-in iPhone controls and mic. Removable cable. Extra, iPhone controls-free cable is included

Quite expensive. Frame is lightweight, but a bit bulkier than most pairs intended to be used portably. Large case

A victory of design and audio performance, the Sennheiser Momentum stands out in an increasingly crowded field of luxury headphones.

Sennheiser Momentum Over-Ear Headphones Review

 

Review: The Sennheiser Momentum headphones have some of the best sonic qualities I've heard in a $350 headphone. While they do have some issues, the sound more than makes up for them. Recommended!

Build quality and aesthetics ; Sound quality ; Angle cable end

Overly large case ; Small earcups

Sennheiser Momentum

 

Both professionals and owners rave about the styling, which Michael Calore of Wired calls "downright sexy." The headphones seem to live up to their sturdy feel, as well; the only complaint we saw about durability in user reviews is that the cables and...

Excellent sound, Great build quality, Stylish design, Good passive noise blocking

Uncomfortable for some users, Cables and connectors may break easily

Sennheiser Momentum Headphones

 

Sennheiser is one of the few headphone companies that have refused to enter into the florescent colored, outlandish styled "blingtastic" motif that newcomers to the hi-fi world incorporate to lure buyers. The closest they have come to edgy styling is...

Comfortable to wear; well-balanced and dynamic sound; premium craftsmanship

Soundstage is not as impressive as other high-end sets; not easily portable

The Sennheiser Momentum that we review today eschews the bright flashy colors and opts for cool, retro styling. Available in brown or black and priced at $349, it's a high-end model that uses high-end materials to bolster the image of premium quality....

Extremely polished on the outside, but not so pretty to audiophiles.
