How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Sennheiser's Momentum headphones may be expensive, but for the price, you get what Inner Fidelity calls "the best sealed headphone for general purpose uses," a set of headphones that are "very good looking, very good sounding, have excellent isolation, are easily driven from portable players, and are supremely comfortable." Wired agrees, calling the leather-clad cans "downright sexy," and saying they sound "phenomenally sweet" and that "sonically, they certainly deliver on the expectations set by the $350 price tag." PC Mag also likes the Momentums, calling them a "victory of design and audio performance," and citing their "excellent audio performance, with no distortion at top volumes." Want something negative, to help you avoid spending $350 on these? Inner Fidelity calls them "slightly small," which could be a problem if you've got "larger than average ears." So, try them on, and if they fit (and you can afford them), buy them.
