I have tried a fair few headphones, and comfort is one of the most important things I look for in headphones. To me headphones are a very intimate experience, something you wear and let yourself drift away by the magic of music. This normally requires the headphones to be very comfortable, and sadly, not many pass this test.
The Sennheiser Momentum, on the other hand, have been the most comfortable headphones I have tried to date. I have worm them for hours and hours on end, and I am still happy to put them on over and over again. You don’t get achy ears after ages of use, and that is something quite special.
While these headphones are extremely light, and stylish enough for you to wear them at all times, they have also included a hard case as well as a bag so you can carry them with you.
Of course, comfort and styles are one thing, but the real test and function of a set of headphones is how good they sound. Much like comfort, these are probably one of the best headphones I have tried in a very long time. The music is highly detailed, the bass and treble are true to the music (or sound experience).
The ear-cups cut out external noise, meaning you can enjoy most of your music, and the drivers make sure you don’t miss out on any of the detail that has been included in the music. So whether you’re a fan of classical music, jazz, or you enjoy your rock and metal, these are the headphones to carry with you. Immersive music experience doesn’t come any better than this.
In line remote
The provided inline remote lets you change tracks, adjust volume, and take/make phone calls. It only works for iOS systems though, so if you have an Android, you may find that some features don’t work as well as you’d hope. You do get another cable which does not include the remote, so if you have a player, a stereo, or just a regular MP3 player, you don’t have to lug the inline remote around with you.
Of course, with something of this quality, the call sound is clear and exact, though as I often say, I find the surround sound experience of good quality headphones very interesting when making phone calls.

At full price, you may think that despite all the style, the comfort, and the music, these are aimed at the more expensive end of the market, and you won’t be wrong. However, with the recent price cuts, you’d be a fool to miss out on these. The style, the appeal, the comfort, the quality of the music, they all make these one of the best set of cans I have tried. Highly recommended!
