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.
*- Great sound, great bass, no tinnyness or echoing or distortion of any kind. Its just good, clear rich sound. As always with this brand. ...
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?
Extremely good sound and durability.
Despite being somewhat expensive, these earphones have been amazingly good. They sound amazing for earphones, with extremely clear sounds and bass and comfortable in-ear. It rivals even the ath-m50s. Its durability is also something to commended. Having been in the washer countless times, crushed in pockets and left outside for a day or so, it still works as well as it did since purchase. Its high price is a concern but is a worthwhile investment, as it is a companion in daily life. Earbud replacements are expensive though, so be extremely careful in handling the buds.
Great Mid Range Earphones
The design of these earphones looks great with the red/black colour scheme (5/5).
The button controls are also very useful for listening on the run (4/5).
The passive noise cancellation is quite good on these earphones (4.5/5).
The sound quality of these earphones are superb and have great bass as well as reactive highs (4.5/5)
Decent for the price
I got these headphones for free as a promotion and have no complaints, the sound far better than all of my other in ear headphones including my Shure in ear monitors, they are a little bit scooped in the midst but it's great for the style of music I listen to which is heavier or punk stuff. They feel well built but are plastic so I'm not sure how they'll go after heavy use.
Love this earphone
Great sound excellent quality but no need to worry about anything due to Great 2 years replacement warranty with no question
Very stylish and design well
Negative side ear mud get loose vey quick and chance of losing it is high.
Make sure keep spare ones and watch them
Great mobile hands free too.
Great sound, fit can be difficult
One of the best sounding in-ear headphones I have heard for the price. Solid low end from a small size. They are also a great looking headphone, with microphone and phone control buttons. They can be difficult to fit properly in your ear sometimes and do fall out pretty easily.
Breaks too easily
Bought a pair if these one year ago and they broke for no reason. Exactly same thing happened with the previous pair which admittedly they replaced and then they also broke good sound tho. For the price this should not happen especially considering how carefully they have been looked after
I LOVE these headphones
I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to sound, and these IEM's impressed me from the beginning. They look and feel very good, and come in a case with a moulded insert shaped to hold the 'phones and controller. The only (minor) drawback to this is getting them wrapped up around the insert for storage can take a few goes to get right so if you use the headphones often you'll probably not use the insert. They're very comfortable to wear and at this stage of the review I'd call them very good...
But the sound experience is where they go to "Abso...lutely Outstanding". as soon as you press play, the world disappears and you're placed in an immersive, detailed soundscape. Everything feels well placed. The bass in Massive Attack's "Teardrop" has a tendency in single-driver monitors, to become muddy and overpowering, but the Momentums reproduced the bass deeply yet cleanly, and kept the acoustic guitars and that beautiful voice balanced. The snare rim-shot was snappy and hard and I could easily picture the drummer hitting the edge. Dire Straits' "Private investigations" was a delight to listen to and the sound of the footsteps created an image of a guy in a trenchcoat waking down a rainy alleyway. Again, everything was beautifully balanced and had a wonderful sense of placement. Next I decided to try a not particularly well produced recording and Megadeth's "Trust" was the perfect choice. The reason for this is that headphones that are "too accurate" bring all of the faults in the recording to the forefront. I'm pleased to say that the Sennheisers did a great job and made the song more listenable, giving the most headroom I've ever heard to this pretty compressed production. I've thrown everything from bass heavy electronica to metal to classical and everything in between at these IEM's and they've shone every step of the way. I whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who loves to really listen to their music.
Effective and eye catching, if slightly flimsy.
Sennheiser's Momentum In-Ear headphones signify a new look for the often matte-plastic brand, and follow up the release of the Momentum on-ear headphones a few years prior.
Out of the box, the earphones come in a stitched case, colour coded based on whether the IOS or android version was purchased. Inside the case, the earphones are wrapped around a plastic frame, used for safe storage.
I found this frame to be ill-fitted to the length of the chord, making it difficult to store the earphones the way in which they were delivered.
The Mom...entum's do look great, which is unusual for the brand, and hopefully a sign of things to come. The design of the earpieces make for easy insertion, however the rubber ends can on occasion slip off and remain in your ear canals. Sound quality is better than expected for the price range, with balanced high end and low end frequencies, and a wide soundscape. The bass is solid yet not overpowering, and the drivers deliver strong mid's and treble, with a similar feel to similar to studio headphones.
You get what you pay for! Great bass and all around sound, crystal clear sound for phone calls.
Accidentally left them in pocket through the washing machine, still work like brand new!
