5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. 3 Jan 2014
Style Name:Over-the-ear|Colour Name:Brown
I waited a while before I reviewed them, it's been nearly 2 years.

And I'm thrilled to say that even after a prolonged period of heavy use they still look virtually brand new, are working perfectly and sound fantastic.

This was my first (fairly expensive) pair of headphones after years of Sony in-ear buds and I've never looked back.

And unsurprisingly the Momentum's blow my Brother's beats out of the water in both build and sound quality.

If you're in the market for a solid pair of excellent sounding headphones, then you can't go wrong with these. Trust me, they are superb.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic addition to the Momentum Range 22 July 2013
Style Name:On-ear| Colour Name:Green|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a lucky owner of the full fat Momentums I was massively interested in trying out the new styled up and shrunk down version of the cans.

I have been a big fan of the Momentums and they have quickly become my go-to set of cans when looking for a relaxed listening experience.

So, what are the differences between the new Momentums and the old ones? Well, the first difference is the size, the cups are a good bit smaller on the new ones. Secondly, the headband has slightly less padding, thirdly the earcup padding is made from a synthetic suede that is very hard wearing (as opposed to the plush leather cups of the old Momentums) and fourth is the included case, whereas the old Momentums had a semi-rigid, form-fitting case, the new cans have a generically shaped case which is less rigid (but nonetheless very nice).

One other important difference I noted was the size of the headphone jack, the new cans seem to have shrunk the jack to miniscule proportions, the old cans had a very nice metal jack that could be adjusted from straight on to 90 degrees.

The pictures show the main differences.

Anyway, these cans ooze sex appeal, they are firmly aimed at the street market and will (hopefully) take some of the market share away from the god-awful Beats cans that the kids seem to think are the nuts.

Sennheiser is a well respected brand that has been in the game for a long time and their upper end cans such as the HD 800's and HD 650's have been praised by high-end audiophilles the world over. It is only right that the technology filters down to the lower range items. The original Momentums were highly praised for their styling and highly impressive sound quality.

Style Name:On-ear|Colour Name:Ivory
Wow. It is hard to describe just how wonderful these headphones are, certainly when comparing them to any other headphones costing under £300.00. I was in John Lewis in High Wycombe on a Friday afternoon, trying out 20 or 30 different headphones, and came across a pair of Sennheiser Momentum. I put on the Momentum 'phones, and listened to The Future is Silent, a track by OMD from their 2013 album English Electric. I was stunned by how amazing the sound was, in a different league to all the over headphones I had tried, including a few by Bose. Crystal clear treble and vocals, warm and vibrant bass lines. Listening to the momentum headphones, after trying out all the others, was like trying to look through a car windscreen covered with rain, and then using the wipers. I've now listened to hundreds if not thousands of tracks on these headphones. Trust me, if you are going to demo these headphones, get the MP3 single of The Future is Silent and listen to that, because if that track doesn't persuade you about how good the 'phones are, I doubt that anything will. These headphones are not cheap at £170.00 to £200.00, but you are highly unlikely to be disappointed with your purchase.

The Momentum sounds OK, but when compared with a headphone like the Final Audio Design Pandora IV or Pandora VI they sound a little unrefined.

I've been auditioning the Momentum against the Pandora IV (try hifiheadphones in the UK) and the difference is astonishing. The Pandora gives a full 360 degree soundstage (they have tweeters firing at you from the front of the earcup), which is the first time I've heard this in a headphone.

Make sure you audition against with the Pandora IV before you part with your cash.

4.0 out of 5 stars stylish, great sound but... 21 July 2014
By M. Chrobot VINE VOICE
Style Name:Over-the-ear| Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
These headphones look awesome. The design and build quality is excellent. They're basically made of stainless steel and leather. The sound quality is excellent; you can hear the smallest details and pauses between instruments. They are surprisingly light and don't stand out too much when you're wearing them. The ear cups however are very small so if you have larger than average-ish ears (like me although I wouldn't say that my ears are larger than average) you may not find these comfortable at all. The best feature of these headphones is that to remove the cable you need to twist and pull so if anyone decides they want to run off with your headphones, the cable won't come out and they will most likely let go. I just wish all manufacturers would go with this design.

If you're planning on using these in a quiet-ish environment then you won't be disappointed, if however you want to listen to the music on the London tube, you might want to look elsewhere as you won't be able to hear much unless you turn your volume up to 100% and even then you won't benefit from the quality of the music because of all the noise.

Overall, great headphones, excellent sound, build quality and design however if you have larger than average-ish ears or you'll be listening to these in a very noisy environment then you might want to look elsewhere.

Just in case, here's what's in the box:
1: 1.4m audio cable with a remote
1: 1.4m audio cable without a remote
hard shell travel case
and... the headphones
