The Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear takes passion for perfect sound to a new level. It combines high-resolution sound with a lightweight, puristic design and exclusive materials like stainless steel and Alcantara®. With countless improvements, technological innovations and the collective MOMENTUM of our developers, we now present to you, the state-of-the-art MOMENTUM On-Ear.

Detailed and clear

The MOMENTUM On-Ear headphones carve out every aural nuance in even finer detail. Thanks to proprietary 18-Ω Neodym transducers that make the trademark MOMENTUM sound an even more brilliant experience. Clear, richly detailed, and with a powerful bass.

Puristic and durable

The MOMENTUM On-Ear not only excels with improved sound but also with its revised design. The slightly curved profile of the headband as well as high-class materials like breathable Alcantara® make for enhanced wearing comfort.

Puristic and durable

Comfortable and variable

The ear cups of the MOMENTUM On-Ear are attached to highly mobile ball joints running steplessly in ergonomically shaped and collapsible sliders. The result: The headphones fit perfectly, also in their new space-saving carrying bag, thanks to the collapsible design.

Headband and ear cushions of the MOMENTUM On-Ear are covered with super soft, breathable Alcantara®. For still more wearing comfort the ear cushions are filled with a special two-layer foam.

Comfortable and variable

With its low profile the angled 3.5-mm stereo jack plug is optimized for the use on mobile devices. Fitted with jack plugs, the cable is completely detachable and can be replaced if necessary.

    The Best

    Got bought the momentum 1 a few years ago after my DJ phones gave up, I honestly didn't think anything could replace them until I used these. I use them every day without fail whilst working, so for roughly 8 hours a day. They font get warm on the ears, are so soft to wear and sound amazing. Yes they took a good few hours to warm up initially but boy are they good. A good all round set for rock, jazz, dance, opera, you name it. I also use them for listening to documentaries and films. I am now about to purchase a second set for home. This would be my desert island product cannot live without them. I would recommend them to anyone.

    PRO:

    Comfortable over ears Smart looking Sturdy Beautiful warm sound Get better with age

    CON:

    Absolutely no cons

    BEST USES:

    Everything

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    Beautiful look

    PRO:

    If you want quality headphones, this is your purchase. Sound is amazing, have not had any issues, and would buy again. I have used these while working out and just for casual use. Perfect pair if you ask me.

    CON:

    Can be uncomfortable on my head over a long duration of time. It might just be my head shape though . . . lol

    BEST USES:

    Everything

    BOTTOM LINE:

    Excellent Headphones

    These are the best sounding "closed cans" I own, I usually have not been a fan of this style of headphone, but these are very transparent sounding. The sound is not fatiguing and allows one to listen for hours. Great range, bass is not too heavy and balanced sound overall. My other closed cans are cheaper ($50 or under) and the better quality sound is apparent in these Sennheisers. My others ones sound closed off and with some echo, which I don't care for as much. I also still use the old PX100 portables, and these have a bigger sound. The PX100 are still better for portable listening, though.

    PRO:

    • Very transparent sound for "closed cans", sound closer to "open cans" and no echo. • Comfortable ear pads, fits well •Comfortable for long periods • Fair amount of isolation, blocks light-moderate amounts of ambient noise • Volume Control, Play/Pause control, microphone to take calls • Comes with a really nice storage case and bag • Folds up easy for storage • Quality materials, very sturdy and should last • Removable & replaceable headphone cord • Very lightweight • Will fit a wide range of heads, from average to large heads. I have an average sized head and there is plenty of adjustment room for a larger noggin.

    CON:

    • Can get uncomfortable if not fit right, may require readjustment while listening • Not best for moving around a lot, better for sitting and listening, not exercising. Ok for moderate movement.

    BEST USES:

    •Listening while sitting, with moderate movement and with moderate isolation. • Listening on smartphone or tablet (works well with Apple lightning to 3.5mm headphone adapter for iPhone) • Listening on any Digital Audio Player with 3.5 mm jack or with headphone amp.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
