Tastes vary. But test results show audiophiles overwhelmingly agree on one thing—the MOMENTUM series gets a thumbs-up.
These headphones not only sound great, but they are so light and comfortable you forget you are even wearing them.
Sennheiser has clearly done its research here, picking out some of the big colour trends of the moment for its new cans, which are available in pistachio, cream, blue and pink. Trimmed with Alcantara - the material that crops up in high-end sports cars and yachts - they are an absolute pleasure to look at.
We really praise the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear: it is stylish, made of noble materials, available in four colors and features a microphone and a remote control for the iPhone. And most of all it sounds good.
With MOMENTUM, Sennheiser combines excellent sound with appealing design.
Comfort is superlative, with missile-proof adjustment of the earpiece in position on the band and a multi-position rocker at the joint of cup and headband meaning these will conform to any head shape.
Although Sennheiser is normally known for its industrial style, the new Momentums have been created to tackle the barrage of Beats-inspired cans entering the market, with the update offering a slimmer, sleeker headphone.
Accurate playback that is respectful of recordings with a slight emphasis on the bass spectrum to compliment modern music. Moreover, the level of comfort offered by these headphones is well suited for prolonged listening.
