Australian T3 - - RADAR -

Com­fort­able, ca­pa­ble and flex­i­ble, the Mo­men­tums might just be the most stylish head­phones to come out of Sennheiser’s labs. That el­e­gant de­sign in­cor­po­rates two soft-leather ear cups (each hous­ing a 45mm neodymium driver) mounted onto a thin but in­cred­i­bly strong stain­less steel head­band. The cups use a closed de­sign, so you can keep your lis­ten­ing habits to yourself when you’re in the of­fice or out com­mut­ing.

Sennheiser’s also thrown in a full kit of ex­tras in­clud­ing a hard travel case, two de­tach­able Kevlar-clad au­dio ca­bles (one with smart­phone play­back con­trols and one with­out) and a home stereo 6.5mm­plug adapter are all in­cluded.

Of course, all that would be for naught if the Mo­men­tum’s didn’t deliver where it counts — in the sound depart­ment. Thank­fully the au­dio re­pro­duc­tion here more than lives up to the brand’s her­itage, pro­duc­ing a well­bal­anced sound that’s clean and en­er­getic, yet deep and rich. They can tackle most types of mu­sic with aplomb, but they’re equipped for a lit­tle movie and gam­ing ac­tion on the side, too.

With a slick-yet-un­der­stated de­sign com­bined with rich and clear au­dio, you’ll strug­gle to find a more ver­sa­tile set of cans in to­day’s mar­ket.
