Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear review: A classy and lively midrange contender


With the trend for calling smaller versions of products, "minis," you'd think Sennheiser would have called the more compact version of its excellent Momentum headphone the Mini Momentum. But it decided to go with the more straightforward Momentum...

The Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear is a very good sounding on-ear headphone that has a eye-catching modern retro design, is well-built, and comes with a nice carrying case and a second headphone cable with an Apple-friendly integrated remote and microphone...

Headphones are fairly compact but don't fold up or fold flat; may not be quite comfortable enough for some users.

The Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear may not fully match the larger Momentum's excellent sonics, but it gets you 80 percent of the way there.

Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear


The comfortable Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones deliver a boosted-bass response that manages to not overwhelm the overall balance of the mix.

Distortion-free, quality audio performance with plenty of rich low-end. Very secure, comfortable on-ear design. Includes two detachable cables, one with remote control and microphone for iOS devices

Sound signature is a bit bass heavy. No adapter accessories for headphone jacks

A typical pair of headphones from Sennheiser will focus on rich, but measured, bass response and crisp highs—and the visual design may look more utilitarian than luxurious. So, it's interesting to watch the company add a little bit of variety to its...

Sennheiser Momentum on-ear review


Nobody could accuse Sennheiser of jumping on the headphone bandwagon. The company has been neck-deep in the game since long before it was fashionable, and you'll find models plucked from its massive armory almost everywhere, from professional studios...

Clear, accurate sound signature ; Warm, rich bass ; Superb instrumental spacing ; Ergonomic minimalist design

On the pricey side for an on-ear

Like a great band, sometimes a pair of headphones hits all the right notes; and that’s the Momentum.

Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones Review


When we did the review of the H-K SoHo , we stated that it's probably one of the best sounding on-ear headphones in this category. However, some users might find it too small and classy for their taste and I, for one, can certainly attest to that.

Sennheiser Momentum on-ear headphones review


The Sennheiser Momentum on-ear headphones are designed to deliver top audio quality along with style. Let's take a closer look and see how they fare

Build quality ; Detailing ; Adjustment

Monster carry case ; Sub-optimal portability

It's hard to fault these Sennheisers on execution. Maybe the band-construction and lack of foldability will put buyers off, but their rugged construction means that not using the carry case doesn't result in immediately broken headphones (at least...

Sennheiser's stylish on-ear headphones look sensational and produce exceptional sound quality

Excellent sound quality ; Good looking and well built ; Comfortable to wear

Struggled a tiny bit with old music

It's hard for us not to love Sennheiser's Momentum on-ear headphones: they look great, sound great, and are comfortable to wear. If you're after a high-end, luxury pair of headphones then you should definitely give them a go.

Sennhesier Momentum On-Ear review


The Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones bring a dash of colour and are lighter both by weight and price compared to the original, leather-clad Momentum headphones from 2012. Pocket-lint has been donning the blue version of the Momentum On-Ear to get...

Wide frequency range delivers thumping bass and sparkling top-end, well balanced, loud, easy to adjust, comfortable, look awesome, multiple colour choices, will suit most musical genres

Soft earcups too fond of sweat, plastic earcup exterior lacks high-end, sound not well isolated from your surroundings, not all colours will suit all tastes, non-neutral audio

The Sennheiser On-Ear headphones are a delight. They look sublime - although not all the colour finishes will appeal to all - and the sound quality they can kick out is a delight too.

Sennheiser Momentum On-ear


The Sennheiser Momentum get a baby brother.

High-quality, fun sound ; Strong sub-bass ; Good looks and build

Poor noise isolation

The Sennheiser Momentum On-ear headphones look good, sound good and feel good for a pair of on-ear headphones. There’s just one problem. Noise isolation isn’t great, so they’re not well-suited to noisy environments.
