Sennheiser, for those who like high quality headphones, is known as a quality manufacturer of headphones, earbuds and the like. This is no exception.

These are yet another quality earpiece that will play highs, mids and bass incredibly well from any platform (smartphone, mp3 player, computer). and can be used even for your daily earbud use as they have a relatively slim profile that makes them not as obtrusive as other larger headphones.

One thing I really noticed about these is the timbre and the highs. The timbre is excellent and the highs are very crisp without being too sharp.

At an incredibly light 190g, there's no need for the usual padding as you will barely feel it in day to day life. At the same time, the headphones are clearly of high quality materials that you can clearly feel, no sacrifices whatsoever in that department.

Sound quality is so precise and clear in fact that I would rate them above my Kardon CL pair, which I enjoy very much.
The aesthetics are not particularly my style but I do recognize the beauty of their design.

Unfortunately the price is nothing to bawk at. $300 is quite a price tag, but you won't be disappointed at their quality if you do choose to get them. Very much recommended.

"These look stunning", were the first words I said when I first opened my Sennheiser Momentum carrying case. Quick note before I begin, for those on the fence whether to get the ebony color vs the black or green, let me say this, it looks very stylish and the quality is absolutely superb if you get the ebony. Now on to the review.

The weight is lovely. It doesn't feel like cheap light plastic nor is it overly heavy. The steel and leather create a great weight and a wonderful sturdiness. There are no rattling pieces hanging or attached to these cans nor is there a stitch out of place on the fine leather. I'm not really a stickler when it comes to overall quality in manufacturing as I believe sound quality takes precedent.....but my god, these are as much a pleasure to handle as they are to listen to.

Granted, the ear cuff is quite small, but since I have tiny ears my ears feel wonderful with these on. I strongly recommend you try a pair first, if able of course.

The sound quality is very, very good. I'm not talking high-end audiophile quality that would inevitably require an amp and a premium sound system, but these cans are designed to be connected to a portable device like an I-pod and used out in the public. Keeping that in mind, when used with a portable device these headphones are as good as it can get without the use of additional power like an amplifier. Now some headphones out there like a NAD VISO HP50 may have a better sound stage, but the build quality is nowhere close and the sound is quite comparable my ears at least. I just feel good wearing these and feel even better when I hear the quality of sound that emits from these beauties.

These headphones are just simply amazing. The design is vary durable compare to my broken beats wireless. In comparison to my old beats, these have a really clear sound. Although the beats have a really strong base sounding, they have white noise when plugged into my desktop and its hard to listen to opera,vocals,acoustic with beats. However, I don't know why nobody has ever mentioned, these headphones are not foldable and they came with a giant case which is not really practical for me.

Quite amazing headphones. I use it frequently on the subway, bus, or while travelling and you cannot hear anything on the outside. It feels like you are in your own world!

The sound is very nice and the bass is a little artificially bass-ey (personally, I like it). I believe it sounds the best while listening to classical music.

Definitely stylish and durable!

The Momentum Series by Sennheiser (version 1) surpassed my expectations.
Comfort: I was worried about this for the fact many reviews I have found have stated that they were too small to be Over-Ear headphones, and ended up being On-Ear headphones. I did not have this issue. Admittedly, I have small ears, but I found these comfortably encircled my ears, hugging them gently. The smooth leather is a pleasant sensation on the ears. Another complaint I read about was the headband hurt the top of people’s heads after long periods of time, making it uncomfortable to use regularly. I feel like this depends highly on the shape of your own head. I did not have this issue either, but the top of my head does not come to a point; it is rounded, and the headband rests nicely on it. The cups also have an almost suction cup-like sensation, blocking out all outside sounds even with no music playing.
Sound: Though quite full in the treble region, I found they tended to fall a bit flat with heavy bass songs. I am highly biased in this regard though. The Momentums were my upgrade from JVC Xtreme Xplosives (XX) (an older version which I do not believe is sold anymore? They were fully Over-Ear, but were more solidly built than the new Over-Ear XX headphones).The sound quality is phenomenal though. Clear in tone, while maintaining a full, rich environment.

Price: I have been watching the price of these for many months now. I jumped on them when I discovered they were on sale because Sennheiser was coming out with a new version of these headphones. I did not feel that the few extra features the v2’s had were enough for me to spend over $100 more on them versus the v1’s. I cannot say I am let down with what I received.

Accessories: The headphones come with a bulky traveling case, 2.
