Sennheiser launches sleek MOMENTUM Black headphones

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Sennheiser reimagines its acclaimed MOMENTUM headphones with the launch of the new MOMENTUM Black. Featuring a sleek look, MOMENTUM black combines pure design and uncompromising performance with the signature blacks of this season’s fashion collections.




MOMENTUM_Black_6.jpg The MOMENTUM Black is the beautiful new addition to Sennheiser’s Style Selection. Following close on the release of the successful MOMENTUM, MOMENTUM Black delivers a perfect fusion of style and substance; urban design that promises no compromise on sound.


Minimal black designs are dominating the latest collections from the leading fashion houses. The look of right now is dark and sophisticated; with elegant silhouettes that emphasise purity and subtly accentuate textures and fine materials. This is the world of the MOMENTUM Black, which marries an elegant headband slider of premium stainless steel with earpads and a headband worked from soft and supple leather of the finest quality. A pure design, reimagined with black leather and coolly contrasting subtle red stitching that’s very much of the moment.

Beneath its stylish exterior, the MOMENTUM Black headphones refuse to compromise on sound quality. Sennheiser has taken technologies from its high-end headphone range to ensure a clear sound with excellent detail.

“Combining form and function is key to the allure of the MOMENTUM. It’s a formula that has proved successful with critics and discerning music lovers alike and its now coming in a black version, with a new look that takes the premium sound experience to the world of fashion”, said Maurice Quarré, Director Product Lifecycle Management at Sennheiser Consumer Electronics.

People love them for how they look and also for how they feel: high-quality, predominantly natural materials; ensure these headphones offer the ultimate in comfort for hours of listening. Other smart touches include the circumaural ear cups that insulate the listener from noisy urban environments, and an optional cable with a smart remote and microphone for taking and receiving calls and controlling the music on Apple devices. The MOMENTUM from Sennheiser is the perfect companion around town: Experience sound in style.

The MOMENTUM Black can be seen first at CES. It will be available through selected Sennheiser sales partners from January. The MOMENTUM in brown is already available.

The Sennheiser Momentum black can be bought from their website right now, so is that what they meant by selling by this month? I want to buy them from Newegg but I'm not sure when they will be available there.

Wow these are so sexy looking (the original color just doesn't suit my taste so well). Too bad they don't quite sound as good as they look.

Looked at CES photographs... Black version looks much cheaper than brown one, and these red elements of design are just ugly IMHO.

Just picked up a pair yesterday. If you're in the SF Bay Area, Sennheiser are at MacWorld/iWorld and are doing special offer on the Momentum Blacks. They only have the blacks and not the browns.


This was my first change to both touch, play and audition them. I liked the sound - definitely more bass biased, but a fun headphone and given the show special price - very hard to pass up.


I know some folks here are hating on the black and red scheme, but personally I prefer it over the brown scheme and the red cables are very sharp looking.


Breaking my in right now, but fairly impressed with the sound right out of the box plugged right into a couple of idevices such as iphone5 & ipad 4.
