Summary: Sennheiser has managed to faithfully cram what made its larger Momentum headphones sound brilliant into a smaller, portable in-ear pair of headphones that sound great and look brilliant too. If you're wanting to invest in a decent pair of in-ear headphones that won't totally break the bank, these are well worth a look.
Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear doesn't measure up to the high standard set by other more expensive headphones in the Momentum line, but it still has a lot going for it for the price.
Pros: The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear looks slick, is quite affordable, and it delivers exciting sound with strong bass and good clarity. It has an integrated inline remote and microphone for making cell phones calls (both iOS and Android versions are available) and a nice carrying case is included.
Cons: The top end (treble) is a touch brash, and also, while the headphones look swanky, the housings are mostly plastic.
Conclusion: Sennheiser’s Momentum mantra is “the symphony of perfection” and “the pursuit of perfect sound”. It would be a stretch to consider them “perfect,” but that’s ok – they’re not targeted at audiophiles, necessarily. But these stylish cans from Sennheiser do make a compelling case for quality sound in a trendy headphone in the increasingly murky world of flashy, celeb-backed headphones.
Pros: Clear with solid range, Balanced sound for all genres, Noise isolation works well, Lightweight, Thoughtful and elegant design
Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are a bright spot in a market becoming saturated with gaudy plastics and overboosted bass. The headphones are appealing both visually and aurally, combining supple leather and stainless steel with rich, vibrant audio. For the $349 price tag, we wish the in-line controls worked with Android devices as well as iDevices.
Conclusion: A victory of design and audio performance, the Sennheiser Momentum stands out in an increasingly crowded field of luxury headphones.
Pros: Excellent audio performance, with no distortion at top volumes. Beautifully designed and extremely comfortable. Built-in iPhone controls and mic. Removable cable. Extra, iPhone controls-free cable is included.
Cons: Quite expensive. Frame is lightweight, but a bit bulkier than most pairs intended to be used portably. Large case.
Summary: The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear headphones are the latest ear buds from the German audio manufacturer to feature in the Momentum line-up, promising to deliver top-notch sound from a pair of slick looking headphones - just like its full-sized siblings. Has Sennheiser succeeded in scaling down its top-notch Momentum range to suit you on the go? We tried a pair to find out.
Pros: Just like its bigger, On-Ear sibling , the Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear headphones are visually striking and don't look like your average pair of ear buds. Available in a black and red combo, the In-Ear headphones look fantastic with a metallic shade and trim, and its two-tone flat cable helps make it stand out from the pack. You'll also find an in-line mic/remote that's capable of controlling your smartphone too, and there are two versions available, with one for iOS d...
Cons: With an eye catching design and blistering performance, there's not a whole lot to fault Sennheiser on with the Momentum In-Ear headphones, although you may have a few minor issues when getting started. There are a few different sized ear tips in the box, and you'll have to pick and choose the right one for your ears with a bit of trial and error - we found the headphones tended to fall out if you've not picked the right one, but it shouldn't take you too long to find...
Excerpt: There's no extra zero added to the price above. Yes, it is all of a quarter of a lakh Rupees. High-quality sounds come at a premium price. That might as well be true with the Sennheiser MOMENTUM headphone, which is a luxury product made using expensive materials. In addition to audio playback, these also offer handsfree functionality for the iPhone.
