Excerpt: Sennheiser’s new headphones are more than just good-looking, they’re downright sexy.
Pros: Fantastic sound with superior isolation. So compact, so comfortable. High price is actually reflected in the build quality — a rarity among style-minded consumer headphones. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a photo of Steve McQueen wearing these, along with a Tag Heuer Monaco, a cashmere turtleneck and some Saxon Golden Musk.
Cons: Kostspielig. Not as compact as truly mobile-minded headphones. Not for vegans. Case is too bulky to throw in a carry-on.
Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless headphones not only look great, but they pack in serious sound quality, feel great on the head and pack in some of the best active noise cancellation we've ever heard - but all of that comes with a rather hefty and steep price tag. If you've got the cash to splash, the Momentum Wireless headphones are easily worth investing in - wireless freedom has never sounded so good.
Excerpt: That I was going to love the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless on-ear headphones was a foregone conclusion. I was already a fan of the Momentum on-ears , after all; my only complaints being that they tended to squeeze my head a bit too much, and the on-ear Alcantera lining didn’t do much to isolate outside noise. By their nature, Sennheiser’s new Momentum Wireless headphones are built to address each of these issues, adding active noise cancellation to the mix.
Summary: Sennheiser has managed to faithfully cram what made its larger Momentum headphones sound brilliant into a smaller, portable in-ear pair of headphones that sound great and look brilliant too. If you're wanting to invest in a decent pair of in-ear headphones that won't totally break the bank, these are well worth a look.
Excerpt: Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear headphones may look like black and red linguini, but they sound much better than linguini. The Momentum In-Ear unit incorporates a control pod on the right channel cable for volume up/down and pause along with a built in microphone. You can get these specifically for iOS, Samsung Galaxy, LG, HTC or Sony control, so make sure you select the right variety when making your purchase.
Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear (review): High-end look, fast sound
5 November 2014
Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear doesn't measure up to the high standard set by other more expensive headphones in the Momentum line, but it still has a lot going for it for the price.
Pros: The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear looks slick, is quite affordable, and it delivers exciting sound with strong bass and good clarity. It has an integrated inline remote and microphone for making cell phones calls (both iOS and Android versions are available) and a nice carrying case is included.
Cons: The top end (treble) is a touch brash, and also, while the headphones look swanky, the housings are mostly plastic.
Summary: The Momentum is such a perfect name for this headphone. As Sennheiser’s first consumer oriented upper tier headphone it has done just about everything right and I’m sure it is the first of many headphones Sennheiser makes primarily targeted at the mainstream consumer. With the rapid growth of the consumer audio market the Sennheiser Momentum definitely isn’t alone as a premium headphone designed for the average consumer but it does a mighty fine job of standing out in...
Sennheiser Momentum Black Closed Circumaural Headphones
2 January 2014
Summary: As I mentioned earlier in this review, I have tried out and owned a lot of different headphones and earphones over the years. I'm not a full-on audiophile, but I do love good, clean sound. I'd much rather have accurate and well-balanced sound than brain shaking bass. Not that bass is a bad thing. I like bass, but I like it balanced and clean - not overpowering and mushy. As I mentioned previously, I do like the comfortable fit of the Sennheiser Momentum Black headphones.
Pros: Package and case are stellar, Super comfortable, Two cables - one for Apple products, one for everything else, Fantastic clarity and overall well-balanced sound, Black leather & red stitching, Stainless steel, Appear and feel quite durable
