"Nearly Flawless" Over-the-ear Headphones
The Momentum Black over-the-ear headphones bring the famous Sennheiser sound quality to life. It is reflected in the material selection of these refined headphone. The use of supple, breathable leather for the headband and earcups, displays Sennhesier's commitment to style and comfort.
"Nearly flawless," reports Michael Calore in Wired magazine for October 26, 2012. "Fantastic sound with superior isolation. So compact, so comfortable. High price is actually reflected in the build quality – a rarity among style-minded consumer headphones."
"The new Momentum Black headphones are Sennheiser’s most style-conscious creations to date," reports Paul Davies in London's The Telegraph newspaper, April 26, 2013. "But where they really excel is in the sound department – it’s rich, smooth and balanced, and doesn’t blast you with bass."
No Compromise Engineering
For superior sound quality, extremely light aluminum voice coils deliver breathtaking impulse response. The cable is crafted with Kevlar material, used for bulletproof vests and protective suits worn by racing drivers. Heat and acid resistant, Kevlar is unbreakable and tear-proof. The jointed 3.5 mm stereo jack plug lets you choose cable direction in one fluid motion. This feature is indispensable when used with mobile devices.
Obsessed with Detail
Momentum is obsessed with detail. You can hear it. You can see it. Every stitch of its seams is accurately placed, every frequency accurately reproduced. Its genuine materials are in complete harmony with each other. Nothing superfluous, nothing to add. It sounds the way it looks – rich, clean, and premium.
A Custom Fit for Every Ear
Buttery soft ear cups gently rest near your ears. A slider made of special steel smoothly adjusts Momentum to your preference: a design principle originally developed for shock absorbers, responsible for keeping cars where they belong. In this case, it guarantees optimum sustained contact between the sound and the ears, and helps absorb distorting resonances.
Embedded within the cable lies Momentum’s sleek in-line control unit. It provides complete control over your music and calls. Crafted of fine metal to fit naturally within your fingertips, it is specially designed to support Apple devices.

It wouldn’t surprise me to see a photo of Steve McQueen wearing these, along with a Tag Heuer Monaco, a cashmere turtleneck and some Saxon Golden Musk."
