AXPONA 015 Sennheiser Momentum Over-Ear Wired
I know they're just doing their job, but boy, public relations people can be weird to work with sometimes. The Sennheiser PR folks were quick to ship me the wireless versions of the Momentum and Urbanite XLI thought the Momentum Wireless M2 was terrific. Of course, they wanted me to wait until I had written what I was going to write about the wireless models before they'd ship me the passive wired models. And with this little blurb, I'm serving notice: I want some new Momentum wired headphones!!!
I spent a good bit of time listening to the new Momentum over-ear ($349) at AXPONA because after hearing how close the Momentum Wireless in passive mode was to the old Momentum I just had to believe the new Momentum was going to sound pretty darn terrific. Well, I wasn't disappointed, they soundedand looked and feltvery good to me. Couple that with the better comfort and ergonomics of the refreshed headphone and I think Sennheiser may have a real winner on their hands.
I'll let Adam Irby fill in the details on the video. For further info go to the Momentum wired product page.
