By Andres Consumer TOP 100 REVIEWER on July 22 2014
Sennheiser, for those who like high quality headphones, is known as a quality manufacturer of headphones, earbuds and the like. This is no exception.

These are yet another quality earpiece that will play highs, mids and bass incredibly well from any platform (smartphone, mp3 player, computer). and can be used even for your daily earbud use as they have a relatively slim profile that makes them not as obtrusive as other larger headphones.

One thing I really noticed about these is the timbre and the highs. The timbre is excellent and the highs are very crisp without being too sharp.

At an incredibly light 190g, there's no need for the usual padding as you will barely feel it in day to day life. At the same time, the headphones are clearly of high quality materials that you can clearly feel, no sacrifices whatsoever in that department.

Sound quality is so precise and clear in fact that I would rate them above my Kardon CL pair, which I enjoy very much.
The aesthetics are not particularly my style but I do recognize the beauty of their design.

Unfortunately the price is nothing to bawk at. $300 is quite a price tag, but you won't be disappointed at their quality if you do choose to get them. Very much recommended.

I got these headphones to replace my old bose pair after a long service of 7 years. These aren't as punchy (read: bass-heavy) as my old pair, and the ear pads aren't as comfortable, but these aren't an on-ear pair so it takes quite a bit longer before I start to feel the strain of wearing these. The coolest thing about these headphones is that when you listen to high quality audio, each track really stands out on its own. It almost sounds like the instruments are in the room with you in some cases, which I love. Particularly when i'm listening to acoustic (non-electric) instruments. The biggest downside is that the sound interpretation of these headphones is so clear, that I can actually hear the distortion caused by compression far more clearly than with any other headphone I've owned before, so I've had to update my music library and get an extra hard drive to handle the larger file sizes needed to fully take advantage of the Sennheiser's power.

These headphones simply sound great. I've had a few different sets of cans over the years but they were all sub $100 and now I know the difference. They were all plastic and the drivers weren't that hot. They were good, but the Momentum headphones are astounding. The build quality is second to none. I do sort of feel the headband metal could be a little thicker, but then I think that would affect the weight and the way the metal bends to adjust to your head. Then there's the simple touch of the amazing case that comes with it - great for storage to protect the headphones as I do keep them in my laptop bag when not using them.

The one and only downside with these headphones is the fact that the cable with the inline controls and mic are utterly useless unless you have an iOS device. As a tinkerer and Android user this is something that is a bit of a let down, but I understand the motive for picking iOS as the compatible format. I do wish they maybe produced an Android set and an iPhone set, but that could confuse some consumers. I understand I can pick up an aftermarket Android compatible unit, but it would be nice to be able to get one direct from Sennheiser. Even with this though, I do not hesitate one bit with my rating of 5 stars. I knew this going in and I know I would not necessarily use the inline mic and the controls on my phone are only as far as the volume rocker which are easy to hit even from the outside of my pocket.

All in all, great headphones - can't be beat. The sounds reproduction is as perfect as I've heard in consumer headphones, and they look amazing and feel great on to boot.
