The Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and new wireless models. They seem to have larger ear cups and now fold! Although I'm a bit skeptical about the wireless model, I'm pretty sure Sennheiser will find a way to deliver. Hopefully Sennheiser keeps the sound quality and signature the same with a deeper soundstage!

Glad I didn't grab the old momentum or the urbanite recently.

I would really enjoy trying a pair of these guys out!  I have some Sennheiser RS 130s and RS 65s gathering dust.  If you really can get Momentum performance wirelessly, these could really be great.

For the over ear they've added all the things i wanted. Bigger ear cups, foldable design and a much smaller looking case. I just hope they haven't changed the sound signature too much, maybe be a little more impact in the low end.
 
I just don't want the sound signature to be too different. With the smaller form factor i won't have to choose anymore between the Momentums and the V-Moda M100's when out and about, i can take both with me.

These definately have my interest.
I will be watching this closely.
I loved my momentums but the cups were just that touch too small.
That and the folding action is awesome.
 
If they can get the sound of the original Momentum in a wireless slightly larger form, I am sold.

Here are some video on this beauty! Already judging from the earcups, I can tell this will probably beat out the MDR 1-R in comfort :O Apparently ANC is really good, but no details on the sound quality. As for the ESRP, I can't tell whether the price mentioned in the video is legitimate. Let's just hope the price is hopefully cheaper than mentioned :wink:

Someone on twitter (@_Trev_ ) said the audio was pretty good, noise canceling was average (he's at CES, would have to drown out a lot of sound I'm sure) and the BT reception was horrible. 
 
Personally, i like the fact it has the wireless option but more so i like that you can still hook up a cable if you so choose to. I guess my question would be.....since they are making a wired Momentum and this wireless model. Would the wired headphones sound the same as the wireless if they were still wired?

As freaking gourgous as they are, $500 is a hard sell for wireless. Better off with some 459, or t50rps and a headphone amp for the same price. (Modded t50s and amp would be closer to $300)
Heck if you have 2 pair of momentiums (old and new) might as well sell them both just go for the best period and get some Audeze El-8s. $699 never get another pair of cans again O.o


For the wired momentiums, we'll see how much they'll be. Anything over $200 I think might be too much. There are very very very good options for under that price
