Here's the press release!


Design for the senses – quality for individualists

The new MOMENTUM On-Ear from Sennheiser


Wedemark, 9 July 2013 Quality, substance and value: audio specialist Sennheiser developed the MOMENTUM headphones for people who prize these properties – and who refuse to compromise on sound or design. Equipped with high-quality audio technology and finished with the finest materials, the MOMENTUM unites form and function like no other headphones. Now Sennheiser is introducing the MOMENTUM On-Ear. This smaller, on-ear version makes it possible to define your personal style with a range of contemporary colours.



The MOMENTUM On-Ear is a new addition to the MOMENTUM family, adding a dash of colour to the Sennheiser product range. The headphones are available in four fresh shades – distinct looks selected by an international team of designers and trend scouts. In blue, green, pink and ivory, their perfect combination of sound and style is every bit as impressive as the rest of the MOMENTUM range.


Katrin Huss, Director of Customer Relationship Management at Sennheiser comments: “The new MOMENTUM On-Ear embodies an urban style that’s focused on high performance and the finest materials – on style and substance. They are the perfect choice for those who demand top quality and want to express this through their own personal style.”


High-quality audio technology and the finest materials

The MOMENTUM On-Ear headphones stand out for their minimalist design, but also for the tangibly high quality of their materials and workmanship. The ear pads and headband have been finished in Alcantara®, a high-tech material produced in Italy. As a result of its unique combination of suppleness, durability and breathable comfort, this luxury material is valued by fashion designers and interior designers alike. As with all other models in the MOMENTUM family, the headband of the MOMENTUM On-Ear is made of stainless steel. 




The sound of these headphones is also clear and uncompromising, creating a sound experience in which even the tiniest details can be heard. Equipped with high-end 18-ohm transducers, MOMENTUM On-Ear guarantees full stereo sound with a slight bass emphasis in a frequency range from 16 to 22,000 Hz. Thanks to their closed, on-ear design, these headphones isolate the listener from external noise to ensure a great listening experience on the move – even in noisy urban environments.


Perfection in every detail

MOMENTUM On-Ear headphones feature a single-sided detachable cable with convenient in-line remote and microphone for Apple iDevices, for easy control of music playback and to make and receive calls on the go.


The new member of the MOMENTUM family is available in the colours blue, green, pink and ivory at selected retailers from summer 2013.

Wow didn't see that coming.. alcantara even! Always wanted a non-leather variant, never would have thought it would come true. 

Hope it reaches New Zealand soon!

If the original Momentum sound is anything to go by, and isolation and price is good, then I'm sold. I want a white one! :)

In terms of colours I think the Black-Red over ear Momentum beats them all.

According to the Sennheiser website these on-ear momentums have 0.4 MORE newtons of clamping pressure - Hopefully these new 'alcantara' (artificial suede leather) earpads will be super comfy.

Which has been done over and over again by other brands previously. 

I think Sennheiser only released black and red as a crowd pleaser when brown didn't sell well to young people.

Seems to be significantly cheaper than the full size Momentum. I wonder how it sounds then...

post #12 of 29

It's going to be 199 MSRP or about the same price range with Beats Solo and V-Moda M-80.. Here's the new challenger i guess..


When will it be release in Asia? Speficially Singapore. I will be the first to buy thanks.

I wonder if that's because it's on-ear (usually means worse seal), or different ear pad material OR just a slightly lower spec driver.

Could be all three.
