The brown Momentum Headphones by Sennheiser are a pair of circumaural type headphones that feature full stereo sound complete with minimal ergonomic design, all within a mobile headset.

Built from finely crafted materials, the brown plush leather earpads and brushed stainless steel are aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The headband frame is light and the earpads are made from soft supple breathable leather for hours of fatigue-free listening. The earcups move up and down the headband for a precise stable fit on the head. Circumaural closed-back earcup design covers the ear for audio isolation and ambient noise attenuation. The neodymium drivers are placed deep within the headphone and provide a balanced representation of the mid and low frequencies.

The Momentum comes with two separate detachable cables with 1/8" (3.5 mm) mini-stereo plugs. One cable has a standard straight mini-stereo plug connection for computers, phones, music players and any device with a headphone output; the other with a rotating straight or right angled connection. This cable also has an integrated in-line remote and microphone that is compatible with Apple iOS products for hands-free use with the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Zip-up matching hard case is included for protection. Inside, a hook and loop removable cover to hold the extra cable and 1/4" (6.35mm) adapter in place.

        I do not walk around town with headphones on. I only use them for travel & personal home listening.
        Sennheiser has the Bass, but not thumping so that it drowns out the mids & the lows, of which I cherish.
        I should had gotten the "on ear" instead of the "over the ear". - Not comfortable
        Also Bulky

        Comments about Momentum Headphones (Black):

        I use these for listening to music at work and at home.

        These headphones are amazing, comfortable*, and look pretty cool. The sound reproduction is very natural, and there is no distortion of the very low bass songs, like Kanye West's Love Lockdown, and the highs are crisp.

        *The only reason for this asterisk is that the headphone cup size is slight small for "over-the-ear" headphones, and listening to music for a long time becomes more uncomfortable. However, Sennheiser has an updated version, which are supposed to be bigger, so I may get those!

            This headphone has great sound quality for the price while looking and feeling great. It's big (and possibly only) drawback is that it suffers an identity crisis and doesn't know if it's an on ear or over ear headphone. I have a large head and large ears and these work well as on ear headphones, but the first 6 hours with them were the most uncomfortable hours of my life for my ears. Since there is a dedicated on ear model I wish they had made these a bit larger. Besides that, a great headphone in terms of sound quality, build quality, and eye candy.

              These headphones are great! They are certainly not for audiophiles and have a lot of bass, which is good for the majority of the users. The headphones fit great on my ears. I was originally debating getting these or the on-ear ones, but when I tried these on, they felt amazing. I wasn't able to try the on-ear but then again I didn't have to at this point. They were super comfortable and have just the right amount of pressure on my ears. I would like if the control on the wire worked with android too though I knew it would not going in to buy this and it doesn't really change much.

                  Comments about Momentum Headphones (Ivory):

                  Lovely: lovely construction, lovely materials, and just simply lovely sound. Other reviews will note that if you have big Dumbo ears, these headphones may not fit. I don't have big elephant ears, and these do just barely fit over my ears. But they fit, and they are comfortable. Also, they are tight enough to stay where you put them, but not so tight that if you wear glasses (as I do) that it's going to press them against your head and hurt. Well... not for a few hours, anyway. They are not particularly heavy, but they are definitely not lightweight.The sound is spectacular. Really, these headphones have some fantastic imaging, clear highs, with a very nice mid-range and excellent bass response. One of my music players (Hifiman) boosts the bass a bit to compensate for the typical in-ear phones that most people use, and with these phones it's too much bass. If you like to shake the walls with bass, you'd probably love it. With other sources, I had no such problem. Overall it's a pretty flat, accurate reproduction of sound. I think the highs could be a little sharper though, I gotta say. The cord is not too short for me, but it may be a bit short for some folks.One of my favorite albums has a guest artist on it that has a voice that hurts my ears in certain ranges at high volume. These phones are able to accurately reproduce her voice, but they take out most of the harsh tonality that every other playback (car, home speakers, etc.) make me suffer through.Now, to get the volume out of these things that you may want, you'll need some power out of your devices. I had no problem driving them from my home CD player, my Fiio X5 player or my Hifiman 601. But they did require me to crank it up a bit higher than with my in-ear phones.These do block some ambient noise, but not a whole lot. Better than open back phones, for sure.

                  Comments about Momentum Headphones (Ivory):

                  I was excited to get these. My [@] had both the on-ear and around-ear on display. I only wanted the around-ear but like others have said, the earcups are too small for many people. They covered all but about a quarter-inch of my ears so they were more like on-ear. The sound was well-balanced, not heavy like Beats and less bassy than Bose SoundTrues. The leather pads were beautiful. I called Sennheiser to ask if they were going to be changing the pads or offering larger ones to put on. They say they have heard this before but no decision is currently being made. The ivory version was the one I wanted to get...I like the color and the retro look of these phones. Despite being unacceptable, I still have them 4 stars as a lot of people have small or average ears and the sound and quality of construction is excellent.

                          To hear a good Jazz in this headphones is very pleasant, is impressive the sensation to be ahead of a Hi-End equipment without having cost thousand dollars. The texture, sondstage and dynamics are the best! It had in a headphone so soft feminine voices and never looks at that the voice of "Patricia Barber" is not easy any phone to reproduce.highly recommended!

                            They're both beautiful to look at and beautiful to listen to. If I have any complaint, it's that the adjustment has to be just right to even out clamping force above and below the ear to avoid leakage.

                            These headphones sounds great, pronounced highs, balanced mids and adequate but not overwhelming bass. The style is awesome however the cups are rather small. They will fit over the average ear but not by much. As the padding begins to wear this may cause discomfort. Highly recommend if you have smaller ears.

                              The momentums are great. Lightweight, nice looking, comfortable and the most important, they sound great.
                              I compared them to many others at the BH store with my own amp and this definetively sound better to me than other similarly priced phones.
                              The earcups are not the biggest so do try them before buying them. If they fit you you will be glad you bought them.

                              These headphones are understatedly gorgeous and produce a balanced, grainless, honest sound. I can't recommend them any more strongly.

                              The headphones are extremely comfortable and sound great; unlike headphones from other popular brands, these seem to be flat, and make the music sound how the producer intended. They look great too! Just wish they fit into a smaller case.
