Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Headphones

The new Momentum on-ear headphones from Sennheiser bring performance and sleek, understated beauty. Available in black, brown and red, Momentum are the perfect fusion of style and substance.

Sennheiser need no introduction to the headphone market, establishing themselves way back in 1945. Today's global market has seen a flood of headphones with just about every known brand name entering the category.

Three new versions were released at IFA in Berlin recently, showcasing their high-gloss black, classic brown and intense red, revisiting the stylish, minimalist urban look of Sennheiser’s acclaimed Momentum, delivering a combination of pure, clean aesthetics and high performance in a compact on-ear design.

“With the three new colour versions, Sennheiser has reimagined this essential, cool design in richer, more subtle tones,” said Charles Cha, Product Manager at Sennheiser.

The ear pads and headband have been finished in Alcantara, a high-tech material produced in Italy. Alcantara’s unique combination of suppleness, durability and breathable finish makes it highly valued in fashion, interior design, and automotive applications. Here, it provides the listener with the ultimate in comfort, even for long periods of listening enjoyment. The headband of the Momentum On-Ear is made of premium brushed stainless steel. They are the perfect choice for those who demand top quality and don’t want to compromise in any aspect.

Powered by Sennheiser’s proprietary 18-ohm transducers, the Momentum On-Ear serves up a full stereo sound in a frequency range from 16 to 22,000 Hz, which according to Sennheiser delivers incredible clarity and detail with a slight bass emphasis. The closed, on-ear design ensures reliable isolation from external noise for a great listening experience on the move – even in noisy urban environments.

Momentum features a single-sided detachable cable with convenient in-line remote and microphone for Apple iDevices, for easy control of music playback and to make and receive calls on the go.

Available now from selected retailers at $299.95 RRP.
