That a couple of folks have reported that the cups are too small for their ears doesn't make these supra-aurals; it makes these compact circumaurals.

 

Personally, I do find it a tight fit -- not uncomfortably so -- but they do fully envelop my ears.

It is so great to see Senn provided such a stylish, fashionish and retro style headphones!

But I get mixed answers which is why I constantly open the floodgates when it comes to this subject.

I saw a pair of Black ones at my local Apple store today.  No display so I can't try it.  I am on the fence on buying it at $349 + tax.

Here's my view. If I follow the marketing specs that it's circumaural, then I'll be disappointed and will find fault in it. However, if I ignore the marketing specs and set my mind that they're just large supra-aural, they're they're absolutely great and comfortable.

Are the cups smaller than the Sony Z-1ks?

You saw the Sennheiser Momentum at the Apple store? In black? I didn't think either of these were a thing...

I stood there for 5 min. deciding if I should buy it.  I should have taken a picture at least.  Next time I will use my brain.

I tried the Sony Z-1K's the same day, and the cups fitted around my ears while the Momentums sat on top. The Sony cups have a lower profile, but they're slightly taller.

This may be a stupid question, but are you sure they were black?  The brown they use can appear very dark. At first glance I mistook them for a shade of grey myself.  Apple will be carrying this model, but to my knowledge there is not a black one.

Despite your praise at the end for the Momentum, I would suggest that based on terminology, and actual product, the Momentums are still circumaural. They do envelop the whole ear. I don't know of anyone who tried the Momentums who can't get their ears in.

Supra-aural headphones (also called earpad headphones) are headphones that rest on the ear, but does not completely enclose or envelope over the ear. This is in comparison to circumaural headphones, which completely covers over the ears.

Well, now you know someone who tried Momentums and can't get their ears in.
