Recently, Sennheiser have announced their new On-Ear Momentum. They will come in 4 different colors: blue, green, pink, and ivory. 

 

This is how they will look like:

Here's a link to the product's page: http://en-us.sennheiser.com/momentum-on-ear

 

''The MOMENTUM family is expanding... introducing the MOMENTUM On-Ear! It offers the same incredible good looks and rich sound. The difference? A smaller size and 4 attractive shades: blue, green, pink and ivory.'' - Sennheiser USA, on their Facebook page.

Man they look sexy! :D Any info on when they will be released?

I was thinking if anything a new version would have come in a bigger, at home use size... the original was already almost on-ear as it is.. but I guess Senn is looking to dig more into the portable market. Looks closer to a HD25/Amperior size now.

 

Would be interesting to see what the pricing is.

Agree, they should've made an open back momentum in my opinion, that would be cool.
Lets just hope they don't slam a $350 price tag on these.

Unfortunately not. But I think if you subscribe to the mailing service they will notify you as soon as it gets released.

They already had an on-ear momentum.  This announcement is troubling me.

Lol, the original momentum was kinda like a tiny over ear.

I'm hoping for a sound somewhere between the Amperior and the Momentum. Otherwise i can't really see the point as the original momentums are portable already.

They already are on-ears. How 'bout a circumaural Momentum?

They must have put a lot of effort in getting these colour out. They are quite unique and yet not weird. In fact I think the tone is very elegant.

 

I saw on engadget that they could be available later this month!

$250, if they release a black version I'm probably getting a pair. Got HD25-1 ii's at the moment, while they sound great, they aren't the most aesthetically pleasing headphones in the world.

Got the ivory one in Paris yesterday, these sound identical to the bigger brother. It is comfy but after 1 hour my ear starts to hurt.

Too much clamping force?

Why momentum instead of the amperiors?

Weird...what does the on ears momentums have that the Amperiors doesnt. And which is teh better one. Hopefully someone can do a side by side. comparison.
