Sennheiser does not need any introduction as the name itself has revolutionized the audio industry for decades. The company has ruled the industry since 1945, at that time Pakistan did not even exist. It’s the Apple in the audio world; every DJ, musician, producer and singer have used Sennheiser products in their lives.
Sennheiser Asia was kind enough to send us its hottest selling headset, the Momentum. Momentum brings luxury and performance in such style that no one can look away from it. The premium yet elegant packaging, those beautiful curves and the use of leather everywhere makes it a phenomenal headset.
Everything about the Momentum is impressive but the real question is does the headset sound as good as it looks? It will be answered in just a moment. The headset does come with a hefty $350 price tag for a consumer product. A segment dominated by Beats (recently acquired by Apple for $3 billion).
Sennheiser Momentum is designed for people who follow fashion in their daily lives and create their own sense of style. The brushed aluminum steel bars and “Soft–as-a-glove” luxurious leather enhance the overall user experience. Momentum is specially designed to be compatible with Apple devices including iPhone, iPad and iPods. The in-line control unit can control the volume on the device plus receive and end calls.
Sennheiser did not mention the size of the drivers used in Momentum. The technical bits include a frequency response range from 16-22,000 Hz on 18 Ohm Impedance and 110 dB sensitivity at 1 kHz. Sennheiser Momentum comes with a less than 0.5% THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) which means it will deliver more accurate sound. The closed ear-cup design will help isolate ambient noise and improve the listening experience.
