Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Headphone Review
For a stylish yet gifted pair of over-ear headphones, we recommend the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Headphone to enjoy listening to your favorite tunes. You get a spacious listening experience that is comfortable at the same time — the sounds refined with a high-end build and folding design. So why do we recommend this headset? Let us find out!
Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Headphone Design
When it came to the original Momentum headphone, the only issue was the lack of portability, and it came with a large carry case. Luckily, Sennheiser listened to the complaint and addressed the problem. All they did was add some hinges to the Momentum 2.0 to make them foldable for ease of storage. Therefore, the bulky case is also gone! Another massive change is the earcups and earpads that are larger. Thus, the new design is more comfortable to enclose the ears. Furthermore, the cups are asymmetrically shaped for a better fit. While going up a size in the design can be bulky, but you do get excellent noise isolation. So if you wear glasses, you will find the Momentum 2.0 most comfortable. On the other hand, the headband and earpieces have also received a tweak. The headband has a rounded profile to sit closer to the head, and the headphone cable runs out of the right cup and not the left. Even the in-line remote received a new design and is smaller with a 3.5mm jack. Moreover, you can get the headphones in an Ivory, Black, or Brown shade. Additionally, you can select a model to use with your iPhone, Android, and other devices. We think you should get both the cables in the box as we use them both.
Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Performance
When it comes to the drivers, it remained the same, but the coupling changed, allowing for less sound leakage. By giving it a quick blast you can hear the difference of the quality. You get greater detail with insight making it sound more confident with greater precision. Furthermore, you gain clarity with rolling guitar sounds. Even vocals and drum kicks define as each one mixes seamlessly. No matter what you listen to, you get a fantastic resonance of lows, mids, and highs. Comparing the Momentum to the NAD Viso HP50, which is a balanced headphone, the forerunner opens up the soundstage more. Furthermore, the trebles pulled down (with mixed electronica tunes) and are less grating on the ear. With orchestral sounds, the same tonal shift takes place. The Viso HP50 pushes the strings away a bit while the Momentum fattens it up. Now comparing it to the Audio Technica ATH-MSR7, it adds fullness to instruments while the Momentum has a richer sound. Therefore, the Momentum 2.0 gives you a warm, rich sound.
