You can never go wrong with Sennhesier
II have been looking for the perfect pair of headphones for the past two months. I have tried over 20 pairs of headphones. Among a II have been looking for the perfect pair of headphones for the past two months. I have tried over 20 pairs of headphones. Among all the headphones I have tried, in terms of overall quality, there are two that really stand out, one is Harman & Kardon CL, the other is Sennheiser's momentum.
If you don’t wear glasses, I would strongly suggest Harman & Kardon, because its sound quality is absolutely superb. However, since it's on-ear, and it's extremely uncomfortable when you wear for longer periods of time. The headphone presses against the glasses, it constantly gives me a headache. Momentum, on the other hand, doesn't have that problem. Since its over-ear, it covers your ear completely and doesn't presses against your glasses. And its leather ear cups are really comfortable for longer listening.
When you look for a pair of headphone, there are several important factors you need to take into account. Sound quality, comfortability, design, etc. After trying so many pairs of headphones, I realized you can't have it all, you have to prioritize which factors are important to you. Sound quality, you can never go wrong with German engineering, Sennheiser is well known for its top notch sound quality, and they proved it again with Momentum. Comfortability, the leather ear cups are extremely comfortable, and its light weight is ideal for traveling and commuting. Design, I would use elegant and low-key to describe Momentum. Noise-isolating, it doesn’t have noise-cancelling like some advertisements say, its over-the-ear design is ideal for noise-isolating. And I think it does a good job blocking out most of the noise, but don’t expect it to be like Bose QC 15. Portability, the headphone itself cannot be folded and have to be included in a giant but secure carrying case. That doesn’t really bother me, but it could affect some people. …

Seriously, when I compared this to my brother's Beats Pro, Sennheiser sounded much better. The comfortability is also ever lasting since the ear cups are made out of luxurious leather.
The sound isn't tedious at all and you will enjoy more and more as you listen to your music through this headphone. I'm impressed Sennheiser. …

Great sound and great design!
These headphones are the best purchase I've made on a set of headphones for travelling, commuting and general listening. Style wis These headphones are the best purchase I've made on a set of headphones for travelling, commuting and general listening. Style wise, they are elegant with brushed stainless steel and very nice leather. The Momentum's are surprisingly lightweight and i find them comfortable enough to use for several hours without discomfort and on my daily commute they isolate background noise very well with the enclosed ear design.
Sound wise, they are very good with a deep bass response and clear on the upper end too. I've tried them on different genres of music from Classical to Electronic Dance and haven't been disappointed yet.
For out & about use, the in line controller for iPhone ( and iPod) is great, enabling me to take calls as it has a built in microphone and volume control, etc. Call clarity is excellent and saves the messing around trying to remove headphones when the phone rings, put it this way - no one has noticed yet that I'm using the in line mic on calls.
The Momentum's also come with an extra cable which is without the in line control, if you prefer this and of course the advantage of changeable cables is worth noting, as previously I've had headphones that have become useless because the cable has frayed or come off completely.
Finally to complete the Momentum's they come with a beautiful case that they can be stored in when not in use and again Sennheiser have really taken the time to design these. The cable can be left attached to the headphones and can be stored neatly without a tangles mess ensuing.
Overall, these are great headphones and well recommended! …

Good but pricy
The sound lives up to its expectations however after hours of wearing them they do start to get uncomfortable. Also the connector The sound lives up to its expectations however after hours of wearing them they do start to get uncomfortable. Also the connector has started to give up after soon 2 years of use. All in all the headset gives you a feeling of quality so aside from what I previously mentioned its a good headset. …

Great Headphones, poor quality wire.
I need not talk about the gorgeous sound that these have, most reviews have already talked about that. However, I will talk about I need not talk about the gorgeous sound that these have, most reviews have already talked about that. However, I will talk about one issue that I have had regarding the remote wire. The glue dried out in the one that came with my headphones (black plastic headphone jack is glued into the plug mechanism) and so I had them send me a replacement wire. Low and behold, as soon as I plugged it in and tried to pull it out the jack came out on this one too. I'm not sure if it's a generic problem or if I'm just incredibly unlucky, but this is a issue I'm not really happy about, as "ze germans are know für die quality oof zer stuff". However, that being said, this issue is nowhere near big enough for me to even consider the notion to dislike these headphones as these headphones are absolutely the most incredible ones that I have ever heard. …

Basically my travel set up is ipod touch 5th gen >> lightning to USB cable >> USB A to USB mini B cable >> DAC >> Sennheiser Momentum. Volume needs to be quite high on ipod touch (or ipad) but just normal volume when the same set up goes from my my MacBook.
I feed it with high (CD) quality streams (via TIDAL service) and it sounds great. However, these things are very subjective and what works for me as a good sound might not work for you! …

Personally I prefer the P5s as I find them more comfortable and I really like the design. The Momentums are comfortable too they just don't fit my head as nicely as the p5s. You really can't go wrong with either pair. …
