Great sound

I love these earbuds as they have a great sound and fit well in your ear canal, most others always fall out for me. I prefer these as they are not really noise cancelling which suits me when I am out riding my bike. As usual great sound quality from Sennheiser and excellent quality.

Very disappointing offering from a great company

I work in pro lighting and audio. I bought these buds to use when working at music festivals, to answer calls ... listening to music with them was to be a bonus. Turns out, they are not great for either.
Average sound quality, certainly not what I expected of Sennheiser. Battery life is excellent. No visible indication of whether the device is turned on or off. No way to see remaining battery life. Useless App you can download that doesnt actually do anything. They obviously decided to extend battery life by removing the load of even a flashing a power indicator. Most annoying are the buttons. Oddly placed tiny buttons on the inside of the neck piece, making them difficult to access and impossible to determine which button you are pushing. I found answering calls near impossible, By the time I slid my finger around and figured out which was the middle of the 3 buttons (not taking into account the slightly removed 4th power button), I missed several calls.
I also purchased the heat reactive memory foam style buds which are incredibly comfortable and offer excellent noise reduction. These are the only positive point I can find.
Overall, I would say they are overpriced for resulting sound quality, not very loud, have stupidly hard to use and poorly located tiny buttons and the buds are not magnetic so they are easy to snag on things and damage.
I will be selling mine and looking for something better.

Wow! Any musician needs these!

I love Sennheiser. Their all around quality is second to none and the value of this product is exceptional. I use these headphones when playing live music that requires backing tracks, metronomes and general feedback with the audio technician.

Using these headphones, everything is crystal clear when performing and practicing in the studio. The thick cable also gives me a peace of mind as I have had many non-Sennheiser headphones that have broken at the cable wires, meaning I have had to throw them out and buy new ones.

These headphone are still going and are showing no signs of wear and tear which is amazing. Recommend these to any musician or athlete or anyone looking to treat themselves to some great quality headphones.

Great quality earbuds

After putting up with cheap and nasty earbuds for many years I decided to treat myself. I read many product reviews before I purchased the Sennheiser Momentum in-Ear and am delighted by the great quality sound and durability. My 13 year old audiophile son is also very impressed. Highly recommended.

Great listening

ce thick cable makes for a premium feel. Nice responsive in-line remote and the angles earbuds are super comfortable. The ear canal is made from stainless steel and helps the premium feel also. Sound quality is quite punchy - crisp highs and enjoyable bass but the mids could do with a bit more clarity.

Fabulous Earphone Love Them

I bought these for my wife as she is very sensitive to surrounding sounds and needs top quality earphone. She is delighted with them and thats after trying so many headphones. The audio quality is superb and you can tell the construction is excellent too from feeling them. The best bit - they do a stellar job of blocking ambient sound and she is happy with them

This product is great for those who don't want to hear any surrounding sound. I use these everyday. I haven't found a product with the same price range and such great quality. I'd highly recommend this brand. When going for runs or training in the gym, the sound around you is blocked out and the headphones don't fall out. Love them!!

Great sound but build could be better.

Great sound but build could be better. The sound is crisp and clear. The only downside to these headphones is the fitting into the ears. However they do come with a range of sizes so that helps. The angle of the earphones is also slightly different to other earphones .

Great sound but not so great fit

I am a fan of Sennheiser headphones so I thought I'd give their earphones a try. I have small ears so the fit isn't great but I am impressed with the 5 sizes of earbuds. The sound quality is very good when I am just sitting still so the earphones stay in place. Unfortunately I cannot walk or run with them.

Good sound, but only ok build

The sound produced from these are quite good and you get some decent noise cancellation. The build actually looks stylish but has some flaws in that some of the key parts seem flimsy. Also, the ear padding part will often drop off the earphone so I always have to be careful (lost two of them at the start).

Fine sound earphones

Sennheiser never let me disappointed. Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear is a stylish and high sound quality earphones, it also has really tangle-free cables, those cables are highly resistant to tangling, I can easily undo and start to enjoy music. The sound derlivered from iphone is quite well and it gives you more when you plug them into a player or computer with lossless music.

Good sound weak build quality

I've bought about 4 of these throughout the year and keep on coming back to them due to the sound they produce at this price point for IEM the only downfall for this is the cables are really flimsy and weak and aren't reinforced by anything else like it's other competitors are at this price point. Besides the build quality you cannot go wrong with these as a daily driver if your prepared to carry around a carry pouch.

Expensive but worth it

The ear buds are expensive but worth it. I initially bought them as my old Sony, and Samsung buds would only last 4-6 months (I use them for hours every day) and these came with a replacement warranty. I have not needed the warranty in the 7 months I've had them. I find the sound great, but they are not as comfortable as the Samsung in my ear but that is such a personal thing I'm sure others may prefer them.

Good balanced sound, debatable value

I bought these from JB during a christmas sale to replace my apple earpods, and definitely noticed a dramatic improvement in listening experience! The different sized buds were a nice inclusion, although the stock ones fitted my ears perfectly. I can wear these for 3 hours and not feel any discomfort! As more of a 'basshead' however, I recognise these earphones produce a good, balanced sound, but if you're an EDM lover like me, you might be a little underwhelmed for the price you paid for them. Also, the buttons on the in line controls feel very cheap, would've liked better quality for the pricey purchase!

Exceptional sound quality

Very good pair of earphones that have a great range. Bass was also excellent. Only issue that i did have is that the earphone plastic bud inserts easily fell out and i would lose them. It is pretty much impossible to replace these buds without buying an entirely new set

2+2=4 -1=3 quick maths

Sennheiser always delivers good sound quality, so there's no problem with that. The case/packaging is very well-designed and I like the colors a lot. Bought these from JB hifi when my last pair of sennheisers broke. For some reason, the wiring always dies on mine well before they've lived their life.

Good design & sound quality

Sennheiser always deliver good sound quality, so there's no problem with that. The case/packaging is very well-designed and I like the colors a lot (I got the black&red). However after 2.5 years, the left earbud stops working. The durability of the wire is not as good as I thought, or maybe its just past its period after heavy use.

Terrible fit and impossible to sleep or work out with

I bought these from JB hifi when my last pair of sennheisers broke. For some reason, the wiring always dies on mine well before they've lived their life. (i typically only get 12 months out of any pair as i sleep in them and wear them to the gym or under ear muffs while mowing etc) This one came with extended 4 yr warranty through jb hifi and they price matched an online store which was great.

The pros:
*- Great sound, great bass, no tinnyness or echoing or distortion of any kind. Its just good, clear rich sound. As always with this brand.
* the little clickery bit on the right wire is helpful to change the songs without having to unlock your phone/tablet/ipod. Saves a lot of fussing around and battery life on the device its attached to.

1) They don't fit into your ears! I tried all the attachments for the pluggy bits and none of them allow a good snug fit in my ear without either creating a vacuum and acting as a soundproof ear plug in which no sound comes through OR just falling out and leaking sounds around the edges.
2) The "knob" on the end of the ear piece is MASSIVE! its far farrrr too big to ever be comfortable sleeping with and its sharp too, it can and does if your're not careful- CUT your ear!.
3)The pluggy/knobby bit is bent and twisted at some stupid angle that means they don't just sit straight out of your ear hole. They want to sit down and bent which means the sheer weight of the steel is too heavy and pulls it out of your ear.
4) the wires are coming out at the bottom of the plug so if you turn your head or move in any way, they fall out of your ears. Even when wearing big earmuffs over the top.
5) the cords are rubber and are very rough/sticky so they kink and stick to each other instead of just gliding over each other while you're moving.

Overall i'm really thoroughly disappointed in these ear buds. For the price they are i'd expect better. What's the point in buying something that you can't use because it won't stay on/in or cuts you?! I wish i could take them back and swap back for the older smaller $80 pairs. The sounds is exactly the same in these as those and they never ever fall out of your ears and are very comfortable even for sleeping.

terribly made in ear phones

sound quality is good as always but whats the point when they are the most uncomfortable pair or headphones I have ever worn! instead of contouring to the ears design they stick out badly often falling out when lying down or walking and definitely cant sleep with them in. Seriously who makes an ear bud jut out further on the ear?
