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

The Sennheiser Momentum headphones offer you pure, precise sound for an amazing listening experience. 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

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
Headband 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.

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
18 ohms
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
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
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Yes
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
No

I have a pair of Sennheiser HD280 pro and a pair of Momentum. They both sound perfect but the HD280 pro sounds like a 12 inch sub driver while the Momentum sounds like a 8 inch sub driver. I really enjoy both and sound quality is very important to me most of all. You can't go wrong with Sennheiser and Sonic Electronics!!!

This product description lists these headphones as on-ear. However, the picture is clearly over-ear. Which is correct?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
Best Answer: The description is correct, it comes with the Sennheiser Momentum on-ear headphones, not the over-ear design.
