I admit that I’m a sucker for audio equipment. I have been since I was a kid, honestly; my dad bought an amplifier kit, and assembled the durn thing himself. I was totally fascinated by all the glowing vacuum tubes and knobs and dials and what-not. And it only got worse when I moved in with my good buddy Chris, who had what was at the time one of the finest cassette players and turntable that money could buy — his turntable was like those kinds you see in movies where the hero is a mega-audiophile, and has a huge record collection. He also did video disks, but that’s another story. For all I know, he had a googlephonic stereo with a moon-rock needle. And even now, he has a really high-quality system with two unbelievably-good speakers, a sub-woofer–the works. (He built the home-entertainment computer system he uses himself, and set up his full housewide networked audio system. He’s a genius, honestly. But I digress.)
These days, my lust in that direction tends to be reserved for things like high-quality speakers, docking stations, and headphones. I don’t know how this new Sennheiser sounds, but man it’s a pretty thing, isn’t it? MOMENTUM black combines pure design and uncompromising performance with the signature blacks of this season’s fashion collections. So take a moment when you can, and check out the MOMENTUM headphones at Sennheiser.
