Sennheiser just announced the Momentum On-Ear headphones, a smaller version of over-ear Momentum, both of which claim to be constructed of the finest materials. The Momentum On-Ear headphones offer a minimalist design with ear pads and headband finished in Alcantara, a high-tech material produced in Italy. As a result of its unique combination of suppleness, durability and breathable comfort, this luxury material is valued by fashion designers and interior designers alike. As with all other models in the Momentum series, the headband of the Momentum On-Ear is made of stainless steel.
The company says the sound of the Momentum On-Ear headphones is clear and uncompromising, creating a sound experience in which even the tiniest details can be heard. Equipped with high-end 18-ohm transducers, Momentum On-Ear guarantees full stereo sound with a slight bass emphasis in a frequency range from 16 to 22,000 Hz. Thanks to their closed, on-ear design, these headphones isolate the listener from external noise to ensure a great listening experience on the move – even in noisy urban environments.
These headphones feature a single-sided detachable cable with convenient in-line remote and microphone for Apple iDevices, for easy control of music playback and to make and receive calls on the go.
