Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum on-ear is a gorgeous-looking headphone just like the original one. The alcantara earpads is very comfortable and the headphone is light so it doesn't feel like its pressing your ears as is the case with most on-ear headphones. That's a major plus to me considering it's on-ear
The overall sound of the MOE (Momentum on-ear) is balanced. It is definitely not dark but doesn't sound lean too.
Pros: Tight bass, clear midrange, sound isn't too closed, better than average soundstage for the headphone type
Cons: splashy lower treble, bass might be a bit light for some, below average noise isolation
Summary: It's really a good choice for those who wants to buy a stylish headphone while still can enjoy the good sound. Although it's a little bit smaller than I expected, it worths the money. But..for me, this type of headphone is kinda tight. Every time my ears ache so much after using it, even if I use it only for less than one hour.
Summary: I picked these over the Bose QC15 and Beats Studio as they sounded better (cleaner and more realistic sound / not super bass like Beats) they sound great off a cell / ipod but even better when the source has more power. They seem to be very well made and very comfortable I can wear them for 3-4 hours without any discomfort and look better then the competition.
Summary: Ordered these headphones for my girlfriend for Christmas. Did a lot of research, so was keen to test them on arrival. They look and feel gorgeous, extremely comfortable to wear, not like your standard headphones. The material they have used is very soft. My only niggle about the design is the plastic cones, but I assume this is to help with weight issues. You can't really tell anyway.
Summary: Pros: Build quality Looks Sound - good bass presence without getting muddy; clean mid-range and crystal clear upper frequencies Comfort Cons: Inline remote doesn't really work properly on Android (volume controls and prev/next don't work for my S3mini). Price (but Amazon had a Black Friday £30 off deal which made up for this) Meh: Sennheiser could have saved us about £10 by scaling back on the flashy packaging.
Weak noise isolation but excellent in all other departments

Summary: The Sennhesier Momentum On Ear ("MOE") headphones are quite light and seem to be very well-made. The headband is a single piece of flexible steel, the cups are high-quality moulded plastic and both the pads and headband padding are topped in Alacantara. This is a man-made fibre similar in feel to suede or velour, but is more durable and resistant to the strains of everyday life than either.
Summary: I've never really invested in a pair of expensive headphones... I usually go for £20 jobbies from the local market. Now that I have got a decent pair though I can safely say i'll never buy a cheap pair again. Everything about these is high quality with leather featured throughout and everything just seeming to be made to the highest possible spec.
Summary: Well, as always, I made a point of testing these with certain tracks. Cliff Richard - "Wired For Sound": Well, the subtlety of the drumming shines through and the bass in the expertly-produced mix is rich and fat, too. No complaints here. James A Johnston - "Snake Bit": Perfectly shimmering, as clear as I've ever heard it if not clearer. Sennheiser takes the lead for the best this wrestling entrance theme's ever sounded.
Summary: I tested these headphones out in an audio store, I was looking for a replacement for my Bose OEs. I compared them to the Bose OE2s, Bose AE2s and B&W P3s, and found these to have the most detailed sound! They are perhaps a little more bass heavy than the other options, but not overwhelmlingly!
