Our take on the Sennheiser Momentum by Crutchfield's David Brown
Bridging the gap between outstanding sound and portability
Some headphones are designed for reference listening, while others are designed for portable use. And some are more about making a fashion statement than true audio superiority. Sennheiser designed the Momentum to fill each of these roles by combining modern features and stellar sound in a retro-cool design. The Momentum headphones will bring out the details in your music with a fresh look that harkens back to classic over-ear designs.
Featuring brushed metal ear cup sliders and a rugged leather headband, the Momentum is durable for on-the-go use as well as lounging at home. The soft cushioned ear cups fit comfortably over your ears while the closed-back design blocks out external noise and keeps music from leaking out and disturbing others, so you can enjoy your music in any setting. And because Sennheiser has been improving headphone sound quality for more than 40 years, you can be sure the Momentums will sound as striking as they look, with deep bass response and revealing clarity.
Three-button remote with phone and music controls
When you're out and about, why not keep your iPhone® or iPod® in your pocket or bag? You'll still maintain control, thanks to the Momentum's remote cable. The 3-button remote lets you play and pause music, skip between tracks and control the volume. A built-in microphone on the remote lets you take calls on your iPhone, while the remote lets you answer calls and hang up. The remote cable terminates in an adjustable miniplug, so you can determine the angle that best suits your portable setup. The Momentum's low impedance ensures these headphones are easily driven by your mobile device, for great sound wherever you go.
The Sennheiser Momentum seems to live in the sweet spot of making just about everything sound good. They have a remarkable consistency across a wide range of musical styles, eliciting musical details while maintaining excellent tonal balance.

Overview: The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are stylish, high-quality over-ear headphones. They are lightweight and comfortable, with durable metal construction on the earcup and earcup sliders. The ear pads are covered in luxurious, breathable leather. The Momentum headphones give you high-performance audio reproduction with rich, detailed sound. The Momentum comes with a semi-hard zippered storage case.
Design: The Momentum has a closed-back, circumaural design which isolates much of the background noise. The headphones are equipped with high-performance neodymium magnets. The impedance is lowered to 18 so it will play portable devices at high volumes without overdriving the device's tiny amp.
Included Cables: The Momentum headphones are equipped with two exchangeable audio cables, both with 3.5mm plugs. One cable is 53" long and has an in-line remote and microphone. The 3.5mm plug is hinged, allowing you to convert it from a straight plug to a right-angle plug. The other is 58" long without a remote and with a straight plug. The cables connect to the left earcup via a 2.5mm sub-mini plug that twist-locks in place to prevent accidental disconnection. The included 3.5mm-to-1/4" plug adapter can be used with either cable.
Smart Remote: The 3-button Smart Remote lets you control your iPod, iPhone, iPad, and recent versions of Macbooks. The outer buttons control volume up and volume down. The center button controls music playback (play, pause, play next song, play previous song) and phone functions (accept call, end call, reject call, voice control). In addition, the Smart Remote has a built-in microphone. The Smart Remote is compatible with:
- shuffle: (remote and voiceover functions) 3rd generation and later
- nano: 4th generation and later
- classic: 120 GB, 160 GB
- touch: 2nd generation and later
- iPhone: 3GS, 4, 4S, 5
- iPad: iPad and iPad2
- Macbooks: 2009 and later models of Macbook, Macbook Pro, and Mac Pro

All genuine Sennheiser Momentum headsets are made in Germany or Ireland. There are fakes out there, so make sure where you buy them is a reputable Sennheiser dealer, such as Crutchfield. [ Thomas Oct 22, 2014 ]
