The Momentum M2 wired variants are improved versions of the previous editions, and feature newly designed ear cushions and detachable cables. The over-ear variant uses leather, while the on-ear variant uses Alcantara as the cover for the ear cushioning, and both headphones claim to have an improved sonic signature. The wireless editions support Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, and also feature Noise Guard active noise cancellation. Additionally, both headphones feature Sennheiser's Voice Max microphone for hands-free calling.
Sennheiser has been in India since 2007, and recently announced Ambeo, a 3D audio technology that could be used to improve positional audio in virtual reality. The new headphones are available through Sennheiser's distribution network in India, as well as online through major e-commerce retailers and Sennheiser's own website.
