PRESS RELEASE: Sennheiser announces the MOMENTUM On-Ear headphone - Page 4

post #46 of 109
Here in Asia, I believe there is potential for wooden earcups. You may be right about Europe, though.

Remember, Sennheiser is a global brand!

More like Amperior...

 

However, the style is quite appealing to young generation!

Nice. I'll check out one if I have the time.

Wow, you haven't seen some of the high end offerings from Audio-Technica, Denon, Grado, or Audeze.

This could be a cool, modern alternative to the ESW9 (with cups made from a sustainable wood).

Then I must be the world's first 6 foot midget.

I second that.  The originals don't come close to be "around-ear" for me.

Funny that they release an on-ear version when, for some people, the original was basically on ear...

Hear, Hear! Too bad, too.

Though the Amperior has been discontinued.  In its' current form, at least.

The Alcantara is incredibly comfortable.  I am not a fan of the color choices though.  IMO, they should have released a black version first to gauge interest, then released alternative colors after that was established.

In that case, it didn't have much of a production run...
