This review is from: Sennheiser Momentum Over-Ear Headphones-Brown
Pros: They look great and they fit my wife's ears perfectly (too small for mine). Works great with mobile devices. Comes with a really solid storage case.
Cons: Price, over-colored sound, poor low range definition (although plenty of "booming" bass which is very muddy), and very small ear cups for an adult male.
I have used a few pairs of Sennheiser HD280's over the past several years, and in comparison, the sound quality of the Momentums is sadly disappointing. Bass is muddy, and the overall sound is colored and more distant, tin-canned, and much less "up-front-and-center" like you'd expect for the price. That combined with the ear cup size -which works great for my wife's ears- really killed the deal for me. If you are an adult male, these are going to be borderline at best in terms of comfort. Especially over long-term listening sessions.
You are mostly paying for audiophile looks, a swappable cable with a mic, and a travel case. I used these for a few days with several audio sources (iphone, PC, and home stereo which drives my pair of Focals) and as many different music genres as possible before giving up on them and switching back to my trusted HD280s, which for the price (less than 1/3 of the momentums), you just can't beat 'em.
Other Thoughts: You are mostly paying for audiophile looks, a swappable cable with a mic, and a travel case. These are definitely the type of headphones you must "try before you buy" due to the price.
