The outcome of the finest workmanship and exceptional materials, these pristine retro headphones will bring out the best of your music. Their rugged, high precision stainless steel design makes them perfect for both listening at home and on the go. The plush Alcantara ear pads (sourced directly from Milan) rest comfortably on your ears allowing for hours of easy music listening and relaxation.

  High Quality Sound On the GoLegendary Sennheiser Sound

Utilizing an innovative high-performance transducer system, which incorporates neodymium magnets, ensures an extraordinarily rich, detailed stereo sound for your music. The Momentum's take every note, every beat, and transforms them into an unforgettable experience.

  In-Line Controls Provide Additional ConvenienceIn-Line Controls

Integrated into the detachable headphone cable lies Momentum’s sleek in-line control unit which provides complete control over your music and calls. Crafted of fine metal to fit naturally within your fingertips, these controls are specially designed to support Apple devices. The cable itself is features a virtually indestructible protective Kevlar shielding to ensure use for years to come.

  Great Looks as Well as Great SoundUnparalleled Style

With the Sennheiser Momentum on-ear headphones, you'll look just as good as your music sounds while wearing them. These stylish headphones feature an elegant stainless steel headband with a steel slider based on a design principle originally developed for shock absorbers responsible for keeping cars where they belong. The durable headband is made of the same premium breathable leather as the ear pads.


The sound signature here is more about boosted bass than flat response, but there's a steady balance that is maintained—things never seem overwhelmingly in favor of the lows. The performance is clean at high volumes and the headphones are comfortable over long listening periods.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

On-Ear
Specifically For

Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.
Closed

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

No
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Yes
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Yes
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
16 - 22000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
112 dB
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
18 ohms
