The problem with headphones every too often is that they’re either too functional like those miniature in-ear absurdities with a squeeky sound or otherwise those XL on-ear models with great sound qualities but with goofy looks. Then you have the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear, the smaller version of the MOMENTUM, for us the ultimate mix of magnificent sound and unprecedented style. Oriented towards the mobile market (iPhone,iPad,iPod) this gorgeous looking headphones surely strike a pose. The messages is clear: the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear headphones are designed to deliver top audio quality along with style, for sure.
A first look at the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear reveals quality with premium materials such as (very flexible) elegantly brushed stainless steel while the on-ear cups are covered with Alcantara, normally used in high-end car seats which gives a velour-like finish. In place the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear feels lovely, not intervening with the listening experience because the tension on the set is just right, another thing that is often bothersome with standard on-ear headsets.Talking about sound: the sound quality is just what you would expect from Sennheiser, absolute heaven.
But the peeps at Sennheiser even took it a little bit further: while developing the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear headset they’ve processed the feedback they’ve got from their clients, especially those in the age category 18-35, the generation that’s constantly on the move. Those people expressed the need for a rich sound with deep basses even while on the road in the urban realm and that’s exactly what you get with this lightweight yet luxurious headset: portability combined with premium sound. The highs are clear and brilliant yet not squeeky or thin while the lows (basses) are rich and deep. One could hardly imagine this kind of sound in such a lightweight headset. Another great thing about this Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear: a cunning bayonet fitting might fool you into thinking that the cable isn’t replaceable, but twist and the job’s done. A decent 1.4m length cable and right-angle jack are both essential ingredients in a commuter can, and the Sennheiser ‘Momentum’ steps up to the plate. Moreover, the cable’s built-in control panel with microphone makes the control of the listener’s favourite Apple products a breeze. Very nice !
Talking about colouring your personality: the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear comes in a wide range of neat colours including black, brown and red as well as four fresh pastel shades that have been carefully selected by an international team of designers and trend scouts. Created for individuals who want to stay ahead of the pack, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM On-Ear offers a lighter vision of urban fashion that celebrates mobility, freedom, aspiration and excellence. The MOMENTUM On-Ear provides an excellent opportunity for you to bring exclusivity and sound into your life, and it looks the part. www.sennheiser.be
