Disappointing given the price
Sennheiser Momentum free
Expensive, and my first Sennheiser purchase.
They are light, very light...which is also their down fall, as if they fall off...and they DO, you may not notice, unless they are in you ears.
I expect OK for the gym, but if not in your ears, be aware, when they fall off your neck, you may not notice.
They are loud enough, but could be louder. They block out a some external noise, but that depends on your ear shape and the plug used.
They sound great, given the size and lightness.
Purchased in May 2019 for $330.00.
Great quality product
I use at work in office environment. Make and receive many calls and the quality is excellent. Good battery life and great sound. This is a great all round product.

Great Sound, Poor Design
The Sennheiser Momentum Free wireless earphones produce amasing sound. At $329 RRP, they are on the more expensive side.
Disappointed by the design and function. Battery life is supposed to be 6 hours but I get around 5 hours on a full charge. The battery pack is too heavy and combined with it's position, it pulls down on the ear piece so I'm constantly pushing the ear piece back in, especially when walking. These earphones are not suited to jogging or working out at the gym. They will fall out!
I thought the magnets which allow you to clip t...he two ear pieces together was a great idea but unfortunately, the magnets are too weak and just a waste. Position of the control panel is also problematic and makes phone calls difficult. The mic picks up every bit of background noise to the other person has a very hard time hearing. Overall disappointed because better design and function combined with awesome sound would have made these exceptional. I think Sennheiser missed an opportunity here.
Sound quality excellent - battery life useless
The battery life on these headphones is really poor. Perhaps 2-3 hours which is not ideal for long runs or flights - which is why I have them in the first place!
The battery pack being on the side of your face is also a bit annoying, though tightening the wires at the back helps.

Not as good as I hoped
Recently bought the product because of the great reviews and brand.
Pros - music sounds great & buttons easy to use and set up. Sound on calls is clear.
Cons - not good for phone calls. Microphone piece sits to high on your cheek, should be closer towards your mouth, it picks up every other sound but your conversation. You can't freely walk and talk because you basically have to put the mic part next your mouth so you can't have bud in your ear. The slight brush of my hair near it distorts the sound.
Would not recommend product for the hefty price.
Maintaining momentum a problem read on
Bought the sennheiser momentum free in ear headphones. Sound quality superb, but the battery time sucks big time. Lucky to get 2 hours out of the little suckers before a recharge. Have to carry a recharger with me everywhere. So for over $350 I suggest there are better. They seem to always fall out of yor ears too.

Outstanding in-ear audio let down by the headphone design
Pros: Best sounding in ear headphones around beating some of the high end brands.
Cons: Headphones constantly weighed down by the left ear piece due to the battery compartment also attached to that side of the headphone. Eventually pulling on the headphone off your neck. The weak magnets do not hold the headphones around your neck very well. This means you need to be constantly very mindful or you will lose them. Quite pricey even when compared with the high end competition.
Best uses: With the way the headphones fall so easily off my nec...k, I wouldn’t dare carry this around outside. Keep it by your bedside table or your comfy couch. The latter though has been resident to my pair of Bowers & Wilkins so the bedside it is. General Review Comments: The Momentum free is let down completely by a design flaw not in its audio department but from the way it is worn around your neck. The magnets would have been extremely useful if it were stronger and held the headphones around your neck under moderate movement. As it stands, the magnets come off while walking at a relaxed pace at a short 50 meter distance and often it comes off before even that point. As soon as the magnets come off, the left side of the headphone where the battery and the Bluetooth receiver is housed would weigh the whole headphone down. I have had it fallen off around my neck on more than a few occasions for the day or so of owning these headphones. Despite this, the audio produced by the Momentum free has got to be some of the best sounding audio I have heard for some time beating my previous Bose and Sony in ear headphones. Mid levels are very lively and comes out even more pronounced. Bass is excellent. I can’t fault the sound setup at all.
