great sound, NOT over-ear 03/29/2013
This review is from: Sennheiser MOMENTUM Over-Ear Headphones (Black)
Sennheiser has unmatched sound as always. Bass is rich without being overpowering or downright painful like some sealed headphones I've owned. Removable cables & controls are great.
These are marketed as 'over-ear' but unless your ears are tiny they aren't gonna fit in these phones. These are very much 'on-hear' headphones and if you're like me and wear your headphones for hours on end in an office these will get pretty uncomfortable after a while.
I specifically bought what I thought were over-ear phones for comfort reasons. These are not over-ear headphones and after wearing them for an 8 hour work day the spot on my ears that these phones press into my glasses are killing me. This is a glaring 'con' and I'll likely be returning them as a result.
I has such high hopes for these phones and they really do sound great. But I'm so turned off by these being marketed as 'over-ear' when they're definitely on-ear that I'll likely return them. Trying the V-Moda M-100 as a replacement which I know won't sound as good.
