Momentum is obsessed with detail. You can hear it. You can see it. Every stitch of its seams is accurately placed, every frequency accurately reproduced. Its genuine materials are in complete harmony with each other. Nothing superfluous, nothing to add. Purism in perfection. It sounds the way it looks: Rich. Clean. Premium.
Buttery soft ear cups gently rest near your ears. A slider made of special steel smoothly adjusts Momentum to your preference: a design principle originally developed for shock absorbers, responsible for keeping cars where they belong. In this case it guarantees optimum sustained contact between the sound and the ears, and helps absorb distorting resonances.
Extremely light aluminum voice coils deliver breathtaking impulse response. "Soft as a glove," luxurious leather covers the ear pads, filled with two layers of special foam, evoking the feeling of climbing into a vintage sports car every time you put on Momentum.
Crafted with high end material: used for bulletproof vests and protective suits worn by racecar drivers and therefore a brilliant choice for Momentum. Heat and acid resistant. Unbreakable and tearproof. Absolutely secure.
Momentum was designed not for those who follow fashion, but for those who define their own style. A triumph of substance over mere effect. Understatement as a statement. Timeless style that reflects your design principles. Our interpretation of purism, perfected.
Functionality is beautiful - just look at the jointed 3.5mm stereo jack plug. Prevent cable break or choose cable direction in one fluid motion. Indispensable when used with mobile devices.
Embedded within the cable lies Momentum’s sleek in-line control unit: providing complete control over your music and calls. Crafted of fine metal to fit naturally within your fingertips. Specially designed to support Apple devices.
Audiophile Looks & Price, but...
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.
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.
