Sennheiser Momentum on-ear headphones


Sennheiser's stylish on-ear headphones look sensational and produce exceptional sound quality

Excellent sound quality ; Good looking and well built ; Comfortable to wear

Struggled a tiny bit with old music

It's hard for us not to love Sennheiser's Momentum on-ear headphones: they look great, sound great, and are comfortable to wear. If you're after a high-end, luxury pair of headphones then you should definitely give them a go.

Sennheiser Momentum TW review: Masters of the craft


They're sleek and they sound great, though the high asking-price is a harsh caveat.

Striking design ; Solid audio quality and connectivity

Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear


The Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear may not fully match the larger Momentum's excellent sonics, but it gets you 80 per cent of the way there.

Very good sound ; Nice carrying case ; Second cable with Apple remote

Headphones don't fold up ; May not be comfortable for some

Sennheiser Momentum headphones


The Sennheiser Momentum headphones may not have enough bass to satisfy every taste, but they are in every other way the best sounding, full-size audiophile headphones we've heard in a long time.

Elegant, plush and well designed ; Sound and build quality are excellent ; Nice carrying case, as well as two cables ; Apple-friendly in-line remote and microphone

Pricey ; Don't fold flat for compact storage

Consumer review (

They are awesome!


I had always use earphones before I tried this one. Previously, I used on-ear headphones and I had experience with over-ear, but they weren't that comfortable, if I use them for a long period of time since they give pressure to my glasses which then...

Consumer review (

very comfortable for people who wear glasses


It is not cheap lest put it this way. But once you have experienced the beauty of this headphone you don't want to try other headphones in the market. I have the momentum 1, 2 and wireless. This one is the best so far. IT has the best size ear padding...

One of the best sub $300 headphones money can buy


For $300 and less if you find them on discount, you won't regret buying the gorgeous Momentum 2.0's. ## Design I got the all black with comfortable cloth ear pieces. The design is unique in that old school kind of way and set's it apart without being...
