Sennheiser Momentum

16 May 2014
  • Summary: Both professionals and owners rave about the styling, which Michael Calore of Wired calls "downright sexy." The headphones seem to live up to their sturdy feel, as well; the only complaint we saw about durability in user reviews is that the cables and connectors tend to break easily. However, with Sennheiser's two-year warranty, this isn't a huge problem.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, Great build quality, Stylish design, Good passive noise blocking
  • Cons: Uncomfortable for some users, Cables and connectors may break easily

Sennheiser Momentum Headphone Review

12 May 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: A bit expensive

Review: Sennheiser Momentum Over-Ear Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
14 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Sennheiser has long been a fixture in the professional audio and high-end audiophile market. I’ve used my Sennheiser HD 595 and HD 600 Open Dynamic headphones for many applications - in the studio for reference monitoring, for sound quality consulting, and for audio forensics. When Sennheiser announced the Momentum series, I was instantly curious about these affordable, fashionable, and (somewhat) portable headphones. Would they live up to the brand’s reputation?

Review: Four full-size headphones for affordable audiophile luxury

13 August 2013
  • Summary: The Momentum’s sound quality, style, and versatility are so good, even with weak source components, that nearly anyone who can pony up the $350 should be very happy. It would be tough to find a better all-around headphone without spending a lot more. The K551 is an outstanding headphone that will show you new and wonderful things in your music, though it's not ideal if your primary purpose is portable listening.

Sennheiser Momentum Headphones

LAPTOP Magazine
8 May 2013
  • Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are a bright spot in a market becoming saturated with gaudy plastics and overboosted bass. The headphones are appealing both visually and aurally, combining supple leather and stainless steel with rich, vibrant audio. For the $349 price tag, we wish the in-line controls worked with Android devices as well as iDevices.
  • Pros: Stylish lightweight frame, Rich and balanced audio, Comfortable fit, Secure lock audio cables
  • Cons: Expensive, In-line media controls are iOS-exclusive
