What are the benefits of a luxury pair of headphones?

These headphones were designed from the ground up with luxury and audio quality in mind.

Finely crafted from high quality materials, the Momentums are incredibly comfortable. Supple, soft leather ear pads ensure excellent comfort and great breathability. The ear cups are totally adjustable via the metal sliders, allowing you to position them exactly where you want them for a truly custom fit. Unlike conventional headphones where the sliders are notched, these ensure you get the best fit possible.

With a massive frequency response range of 16-22000Hz, these headphones will reproduce every last speck of detail from your track of choice. With crisp highs, meaty mids and bass with an excellent sense of grip - these headphones will have you hooked from every direction.

How portable are these headphones?

The Momentum series are an excellent choice for your portable audio needs. They produce fantastic quality sound without the need of a headphone amplifier (as many high-end headphones require), enabling you to be truly on-the-go and still enjoy impeccable audio.

The closed-back ambient sounds from disturbing your listening design of the earpieces provides excellent passive noise attenuation, keeping unwanted experience - leaving you to fully immerse yourself in your music.

Also included is a premium hard shell storage pouch, perfect for slipping into your bag and keeping your headphones protected on your journey.

What about connectivity?

Included with your purchase are two detachable, single-sided audio cables for use with your Momentums. One standard 3.5mm audio cable, and one that contains a microphone and remote. This allows you to take and make calls, and also control your music without having to fiddle with your source device.

Due to both provided cables coming equipped with a standard 3.5mm jack connection, these headphones can be connected to a multitude of everyday devices. Whether you want to listen to music from your smartphone, MP3 player, tablet or computer - these headphones are ready to do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality Bought these over a month ago as they were on sale for £99.99. Really wanted these version 1 Momentum before they became discontinued, due to the smaller cups they look better than the newer Momentum headphones, though if you have medium to large ears you may find the ear cups slightly small and a bit irritating for long listening sessions. They have a very balanced sound, something I look for in a headphone, and the noise isolation is better than I thought. For the price I paid I got a bargain, though I think the original RRP was a bit steep. Postage and packaging from Maplin was excellent.

There is a little confusion on the description. Can you confirm whether these headphones are on ear or over ear?

Asked by: Pete
What a shame Darren, the picture shown is for the over ear model and the wording is a little confusing. I already have the on ear model, which are great but do leak a little noise and that's why I was considering the over ear model
