PRESS RELEASE: Sennheiser announces the MOMENTUM On-Ear headphone

Design for the senses – quality for individualists: The new MOMENTUM On-Ear from Sennheiser

 

Old Lyme, Conn., 10 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 colors.

 

 

 

 

 

The MOMENTUM On-Ear is a new addition to the MOMENTUM family, adding a dash of color 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 colors blue, green, pink and ivory at selected retailers from summer 2013.

I think that these will be great and they look beautiful...
Funny that they release an on-ear version when, for some people, the original was basically on ear...

Seems like Sennheiser's M80s.

Hopefully it sounds as good as the originals!

I'm VERY curious how these will sound.  I tried the normal Momentum but I kinda got lost.  I also had to turn my MP3 player up almost all the way to power them to an OK listening level.

That shade of blue looks really awesome, I wish that shade had existed for the over ears when I bought my set.

Took the words right out of my mouth, I bought the black ones but would have much preferred blue.

Yeah the Mo's are fine for me

 

Am going to try these when Custom-Cable get them in in August. If the sound is the same then will be ambivalent because I personally am Mr Average, buy medium tees blind. Have never encountered fit issues reported by others for whatever brand you can think of from Grado to Sennheiser. Suppose the cheaper price is the plus point :D

hrrrhrrr, they could just repackage the old ones and call them on-ear. The perfect crime.
