Sennheiser Momentum Wireless


The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless is a pair of Bluetooth headphones with active noise cancellation and a sculpted, bass-forward sound signature.

Powerful audio performance with intense bass response and sculpted high-mids and highs. Active noise cancellation in addition to Bluetooth audio. Can be used passively in wired mode

Very expensive. Noise cancellation is good, but not great

Sennheiser's latest addition to its classy Momentum line of headphones is the over-ear, active noise cancellation-equipped Momentum Wireless. (Sennheiser also recently released the Momentum Wireless On-Ear headphones, a separate product.) The Momentum...

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 Review


In an era where celebrity-themed headphones and mobile devices reign supreme, Sennheiser has had to figure out where it fits in. As a company already in audiophiles' good books, there is an opportunity to show they can play the style and substance game...

Clear with solid range ; Balanced sound for all genres ; Noise isolation works well ; Lightweight ; Thoughtful and elegant design

Not foldable ; A little pricey

It’s never an easy decision to spend $350 on a set of cans, but if you’re going to, you could do a whole lot worse than the Momentum – we see people do it every day.

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...

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.

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
