You’ve come to the right place!!
What I will bring you in this quick comparison
I will simply outline the Difference between these two headphones, and then link to a recommendation afterwards. 🙂
The Many Faces of Momentum
Now without further ado, let’s get rolling!
The Momentum 2.0 wireless (as well as the 2.0 wired) is the same headphone as the HD1. The reason it’s now branded as such is because Sennheiser does not own the rights to the “Momentum name.” That’s it!
The only real difference lies in the design of the headband. It’s now slightly wider on the HD1 to alleviate pressure on your noggin. The headphone also says “HD1” on it rather than “Momentum.”
There are some different versions of the Momentum that you should know about.
I would avoid the original Momentum’s, as the fit was a bit off and the sound overall was a little less defined and focused. The Momentum 2.0 improved upon all that: Comfort is a lot better, the mid-range is much improved, and the headphones are fold-able. There’s really no reason to purchase the original Momentum’s. Interested in reading some reviews on the 2.0’s?
