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 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.

Rebirth of the Cool

 

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 years ago.

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.

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

The Sennheiser Momentum can be described in one word - brilliant. Yes, it does cost quite a bit of money, and at Rs. 24,900, it significantly restricts the potential customer base. For those who can afford this, we would strongly urge that you go and...

Excellent build quality, Unique design, Amazing sound quality, At ease with most kinds of music, Isolates ambient noise very well, Lightweight and comfortable, In-line playback controls
