sen-momentum.JPGLooking to take the battle for a place on your bonce to Beats, Sennheiser have revealed their latest Momentum headphones.

Aiming at a slightly older, more sophisticated market than the teen-orientated Beats headphones that sparked the current boom in fashion-conscious headphones, Sennheiser’s Momentum on-ear headphones.

Lightweight and made from a mixture of stainless steel and luxury leather, the Momentum’s come in four pastel shades, including lime green, pink, blue and a natty ivory / coffee combo.

Costing £169.99 a pair, they don’t come cheaply, but our brief hands-on time with the headset has so far proved positive. From the ‘Alcantara’ materials around the earcups (usually the reserve of luxury yacht upholstery) and a balanced sound that leans ever-so-slightly in favour of bass tones without ever losing Sennheiser’s signature clarity, they’ve impressed so far.

We’ll have a full review of the Sennheiser Momentum headphones up in Tech Digest shortly so check back soon for our full verdict.

Launching in mid-July, you can find out more about the headphones at Sennheiser’s website.
