Excellent as a portable headphone for an iDevice
I really enjoy these headphones because they are a great combination of convenience (easily driven by most portable devices, and the remote is quite handy even if you con't use them for phone calls), comfort (I find them light and extremely comfortable), quality (they do seem very well built), and sound. Nice design helps. The sound is not perfect, but it has a fullness and warmth that make them very easy to listen to, and very enjoyable at lower volumes (where the sound remains full).
Dynamic, fun and engaging sound
The Sennheiser Momentum are some of the best headphones money can buy if you need a set to take out on the streets. Theyâ??re comfortable, look a good deal swisher than Sennheiserâ??s other sets and offer sound comparable to that of its best portable cans. The outlay is significant and for pure at-home use weâ??d pick an open-back alternative, but these headphones donâ??t put a foot wrong.
Closed-back design that seals your ears from the surroundings
The Sennheiser MOMENTUM, although not branded as audiophile-grade, perform just as well. The audio reproduction is balanced across the audio frequency spectrum, which is what a good pair of cans is supposed to do. The retro looks with the premium leather will surely appeal to most. It even works with iDevices with the inline remote control. Thanks to the microphone, it can also be used as a handsfree with the iPhone, although it seems to be absurd to have a handsfree in this price.
Dynamic, balanced and enjoyable sound
At £260 they certainly arenâ??t the cheapest among their competitors, but their refreshingly balanced sound and great design makes them worth every penny, easily putting them among our favourite on-the-go headphones.
Crystal clear, static free headphones, plug in - turn on - perfect
After 10 months of nearly daily use these headphones are better than ever. Physically they still look brand new, the ear cups have retained their original shape, remain soft, and show no signs of wear. All the controls work perfectly and the headband looks like it did when it was delivered. Still using the original batteries, I'll charge them every 6-8 hours of use so they don't run out in the middle of something.
Great sound quality, long wireless range, good battery life, comfortable to wear
Wireless headphones can be something of a mixed blessing. They help to free you from the tyranny of cables, but often their sound quality simply isn't as good as that which you get from a good pair of wired cans. Sennheiser, however, thinks it's cracked this problem with the RS 160s, which apparently use the Kleer wireless protocol to deliver no-compromise audio.
Unlike Bluetooth A2DP, Kleer delivers full-bandwidth, 16-bit, 44kHz, uncompressed, CD-quality sound.
Good 'Kleer' tech, Decent range, Comfortable
The RS 160s are very good, but if you're already looking for premium headphones, we'd recommend tracking down the 160s' big brother, the RS 170s. They deliver more bass, more volume, four times the range and include a smart-looking docking station, and despite their £180 RRP we're already seeing them available for below the £150 mark - which is less than some shops are charging for the RS 160s.
