Sennheiser gains Momentum with new headphones and amp

HDVD 800 and HDVA 600 amps join new MOMENTUM portable headphones

Sennheiser has confirmed a new pair of headphones and a brace of headphone amplifiers for the Australian market, bringing the IFA-announced MOMENTUM 'urban' headphones, HDVD 800 and HDVA 600 amplifiers to the country by the end of the year.

The Momentum headphones are part of Sennheiser's Style Selection, emphasising good looks alongside sound quality. The headband and earpads are made from soft English Pittany leather, with a simple stainless steel slider for adjusting the headphones' size.

The Sennheiser Momentum includes an iPod- and iPhone-compatible in-line control on the headphones' cable, which can handle volume control as well as playback. These stylish headphones will be available in Australia from October.

Two amplifers will complement the company's existing range of audiophile headphones including the exclusive HD 800 down to the HD 600. Sennheiser is new to the digital headphone amplifier game, and has followed its first model up with an analogue counterpart.

The new HDVA 600 amplifier is an analogue amplifier with an expected November release, while the premium HDVD 800 includes a digital-to-analogue audio converter and will be available in Australia from December.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
