Sennheiser Momentum Full Size Headphones with Microphone, Black

Product information

Sophisticated looks meet sophisticated sound in Sennheiser’s Momentum headphones. Made from durable brushed stainless steel, they’re softened by luxurious leather accents at the headband and earpads. They also feature an inline microphone and remote control for easy switching between calls and tunes. Despite their premium construction, they still manage to be lightweight enough for quality on-the-go listening.


  • Enjoy all the detail, with none of the distractions. A closed back design helps to create a truer, richer soundscape while cutting down on background noise and sound leak. Essential for commutes.
  • Unlock more detail than ever from your music. A wide frequency range of 17-23 Hz captures the true potential of any track. Vocals are clearer, midrange is more detailed and bass richer.
  • Inline volume control keeps you in control of your listening without having to fiddle with your smartphone or MP3 player. Along with the integrated microphone, even switching between calls and your music is quick and intuitive via the iPhone/iPad/iPod cable with smart remote or a standard cable (supplied)
  • Brushed steel construction lasts longer and feels more solid that plastic alternatives. Pittards Leather from Somerset accents create a more flexible, natural fit that’s plush to the touch.
  • The unique 3.5mm stereo plug can be adjusted to a 180 or 90-degree angle fit so it’s always in just the right position. There’s also a full size stereo jack adapter to keep hi-fi enthusiasts happy/
  • The included hard carry case will keep your Sennheiser momentum headphones in peak condition, and let you tuck them into backpacks and luggage without a worry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Headphones!! A** Got these for my birthday and i love them, not only do they look amazing (Ivory colour) they are so comfy to wear and the sound is brilliant!! I use them for my samsung phone, ipod, ipad and piano, it has the larger adapter included for my piano which was very handy!! Love them!! Hight recommend and well worth the money! 19 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Sennheiser Momentum absolutely fabulous product, they are not the cheapest headphones available but they are excellent value for money. 08 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well Built Solid - Elegant The headphones are well-built and look elegant. The sounds are better in the mid-ranges. For classic and Jazz; these make for really good listening. The lower ranges are also well delivered. Thanks, 01 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Looks great, but the sound is a bit dissapointing! The headphones look fantastic (I went for the Neutrals model), the build quality and design details are great. I bought these to replace a old pair of Bose Quiet comfort 2 headphones and chose the Momentum’s as I don’t need the noise cancelling. In comparison the Momentum’s are a bit disappointing, the sound isn’t as balanced, lacks depth and not as comfortable to wear. 19 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brilliant Headphones! I fell in love with these headphones at first sight! They are stylish, sexy and so comfortable! With wonderful clear sound with such detail. The only downside is that because these headphones are for use out and about they don't go as loud as I would expect a pair of headphones to go in this price range. Maybe I just listen to my music too loud... I would definitely recommend these headphones especially if you are a Apple user as the integrated smart remote and microphone is brilliant when receiving calls. 29 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Musical pleasure with comfort These headphones are without doubt the best I have owned so far - they give a quality of listening which i can only describe as superb and they are so comfortable to wear for lengthy periods. All in all - simply terrific ! 22 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great headphones I bought these today from John Lewis. The sound is fantastic. I know a lot of people write a lot of really long reviews. Frankly it's really hard reading through millions of them trying to find a pair of headphones that suit your needs. They have wonderful sound. They're light, fit really well and are still stylish. These are the best, in my opinion, that you can buy for this price range. The only thing I would say is that they are a little smaller than most. If you have quite big ears or a big head, without sounding rude. Then these aren't really for you. I really love these. I would advise buying them. I was served really quickly in this store. No waiting around. I didn't have to order it or ask if they had it in stock. Can't really say more. Just a awesome purchase. I have no regrets. 10/10. :) 28 September 2013
