Excerpt: First off, I like the way these headphones look. They’re classy but not flashy. It has a nice headband stitching and a nice consistent design. The headband has a metal piece that runs all the way through. It has a decent enough clamp to stay on your head but doesn’t create too much pressure. The ear cushions are incredibly comfortable but rather narrow for your ears.
Summary: The new Sennheiser Momentum is a great pair of headphones built to last a long time. The sound quality is well balanced and straightforward. There are no unpleasant surprises lurking here. If I could change anything I think I would have designed the ear cups to be slightly larger so that they would completely cover the ear and not give the impression that they are somewhere in-between on-ear and over-ear. Both options are available with the Momentum.
Pros: Great, balanced sound. Superior build materials. Very cool design.
Cons: Ear cups might feel a little small on over-ear model.
