The previous version of Momentum, released in 2013, turned out to be not that comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Normally, the fit varied from user to user, but there was enough reason for Sennheiser to reconsider the design for its second-generation Momentum. The second generation comes with the name of Momentum 2.0 and is available for 350 dollars.
To be mentioned that Sennheiser has tweaked the designs of both models, over-ear and on-ear, which come now in wired and wireless versions and feature a new folding design that gives them a small footprint when they are in their carrying case. Both models, Momentum 2.0, and its wireless version come with larger earcups, which allow them to fit better over users ears, comparing with the original Momentum. The designers also made the earcups softer, meaning that the Momentum 2.0 is a more comfortable headphone than the previous version. The other change is to the plug. The new headphones come with a simple L-shaped plug that is slim enough to be used with a smartphone that has a protective case. The original version had a more attractive plug that featured a hinge that allowed to change angles.
The main attraction on Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 is that these headphones come in versions that can be used on Android devices or Apple iOS devices. The only difference between these two versions is the cable. To be more explicit, the inline remote/microphone cable that ships with the headphones. However, probably for 350 dollars the user should get both an iOS and Android oriented cable in the box, because some owners probably use both Apple and Android devices. At launch, Sennheiser Momentum 20. is available is two colors, ivory and black. Still, users should expect more colors to be available in the future.
Talking about sound, Sennheiser Momentum 2.0, delivers a good sound in all types of music. However, the biggest difference between this model and previous models is the folding design and the comfort. Although the sound has been changed, too, these modifications are not drastic. Sennheiser Momentum is a strong contender on the headphones market in its price class. It is worth considering, if customers are looking for a premium over-ear heapdhones.
