“Perfect sound can be heard, felt and seen”, says the press release for Sennheiser’s new MOMENTUM headphone range, revealed at IFA 2012 earlier today. Whether you buy that or not, the new over-ear sets look to pair a minimalist design with the most comfortable, premium materials and top-notch audio quality.
Using Sennheiser’s “established technologies from the high-end headphone sector”, the cans are made from predominately natural materials, including leather from English tannery Pittards and a swish stainless steel headband slider.
Using a standard 3.5mm jack, the Momentum headphones will work best with Apple products like iPods, iPhones and iPads thanks the compatible in-line remote and microphone, letting you make hands-free calls, change music tracks and adjust volume.
“Our passion for perfection is apparent not only in the outstanding technology used in the MOMENTUM but also in its modern, distinctive design and selected premium materials,” says Dominic Feeney, product manager at Sennheiser UK.
“With striking yet minimalistic design, it makes the MOMENTUM the perfect accessory for those keen to display a passion for quality audio with a discreet and stylish authority.”
Landing in September for £259.99, you’ll be able to pick these up from John Lewis and HMV stores.
