Excerpt: This is my third pair of Sennheiser headphones (1 for pc, 1 for wireless movies/tv in condo to keep noise levels low, and this pair). They make quality audio equipment and the Momentum on-ear headphones are no exception. I love the deep bass and sound quality these generate and the fact that I can use them with not only my iPhone due to the built-in mic but also my other entertainment devices is really sweet.
Pros: Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: I was excited to get these. My [@] had both the on-ear and around-ear on display. I only wanted the around-ear but like others have said, the earcups are too small for many people. They covered all but about a quarter-inch of my ears so they were more like on-ear. The sound was well-balanced, not heavy like Beats and less bassy than Bose SoundTrues. The leather pads were beautiful.

Conclusion: These headphones are of very good quality and I have enjoyed them from the first time I put them on. Pros: Good sound quality with vibrant bass Cons: Wires....not wireless. Would definitely recommend them!!
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.
Excerpt: These headphones sounds great, pronounced highs, balanced mids and adequate but not overwhelming bass. The style is awesome however the cups are rather small. They will fit over the average ear but not by much. As the padding begins to wear this may cause discomfort. Highly recommend if you have smaller ears.

Summary: I've waited to write a review until I had used these Momentum over-the-ear headphones for a few weeks. I confess up front I did not have an opportunity to audition many headphones in advance of this purchase, but I will say the others I tried didn't come close.
Pros: Lightweight, attractive design, solid bass, two cords (one with controls, one without), nice & sturdy case, ear cups do not get hot (at least for me)
Cons: Not collapsible for storage, otherwise solid bass can be a bit boomy, ear cups could be a bit wider
