If you look up the meaning of the word momentum, you would come across words like motion, impetus, impulse, velocity, acceleration, force or speed of movement. It is something that is also associated with gaining energy and lifting up of oneâ€™s spirits. Now think about a music accessory that captures the underlying essence of all of this and brings at your disposal the best of headphone engineering. A headphone that is a namesake of the word itself and does total justice to it. Sounds impressive, isnâ€™t it? But let us pause for a moment and weâ€™ll come back to this.
I am a foley artist and needless to say, am obsessed with the web of noise around us. I love picking up everyday sounds, and mixing and matching and reproducing them in a totally new avatar. I have the habit of continuously listening to what I record, especially when I am on the move. So I needed a pair of headphones that would produce amazingly clear sound and be perfect for commuting and travelling. Something that would help me feel the rhythm, the vibration, the extremities and the silence of the timbre, and motivate me to challenge myself. Looked up the net and found that the recently launched Sennheiser Momentum was generating a lot of positive reviews and feedbacks. I spoke to my bosom friend Sam, who is an ardent admirer of Sennheiser headphones and is the perfect guide when it comes to headphones and headsets. After weighing the pros and cons religiously, I bought Sennheiser Momentum headphones from the brandâ€™s official webstore shop.sennheiserindia.com for becoming my partner in crime. They got it delivered super fast and I must say, I was not let down.
Coming back to the performance part, be it technology, design, comfort or looks, this brilliant piece of device gets thumbs up in all the departments. Circumaural, closed back and powerful transducer system with neodymium magnets. Rich audio ranging, retro look, excellent attenuation of ambient noise and no noticeable distortion. Premium leather, stainless steel and smart remote and cables. Â This pair of headphones exceeded my expectations and can be easily passed on as audiophile grade headphones. The sound quality is unadulterated and so full of fire and virility that itâ€™s not even funny. True to its name, it just doesnâ€™t let the energy metre go south and will make every moment count. I think even the purists wouldnâ€™t be able to find faults with it.
