These headphones are just simply amazing. The design is vary durable compare to my broken beats wireless. In comparison to my old beats, these have a really clear sound. Although the beats have a really strong base sounding, they have white noise when plugged into my desktop and its hard to listen to opera,vocals,acoustic with beats. However, I don't know why nobody has ever mentioned, these headphones are not foldable and they came with a giant case which is not really practical for me.

These headphones are spectacular. I have only owned one other pair of relatively cheap headphones, so I can not compare them to a high end competitor. However, the quality of construction is amazing. They sound great and are subtle but beautiful in design. They provide a comfortable fit and my ears were not sore after many hours of use. The negatives are very few, but I will list them now. The earpieces do not fully cover my ears, which are average sized, and so the noise cancellation is not amazing. Furthermore, for the price point it is a shame that the inline control is confined to apple products. And finally, I caution buying these headphones if you want a portable pair. They do not fold and as such the hard case that they are stored in is very large. Large enough not to fit comfortably in a backpack unless you have a lot of extra space.

In conclusion, these headphones exceeded all my expectation and were well worth the money. I just wish they were less bulky to carry around.

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.

Didn't get from amazon but would like to share my experience.

Great looking pair of headphones to start off. The sleek design makes it awesome for commutes and does not attract too much attention at the same time. Made of great quality materials that feel like they are made to last.

Now the important part, how do they sound?
Although the bass isn't very heavy on these, they still pack a punch. These headphones tailor to all genres of music, which leads to the most important part of these headphones. These pair of cans allow you to hear songs that you've listened to a million times before in a whole other way. You will hear different aspects of the songs you know and love like you never have before. Of course this might be difficult if you are on the subway or the bus. However I find that if I crank the volume up a bit they do the job.

Amazing product from sennheiser. First time with sennheiser and likely won't be my last.

Wonderful headphones! As an audiophile, clean, well balanced sound is very important to me. Many new headphones have over-boosted bass with muddy mids and limited highs, especially those that seem to be endorsed by celebrities. For about the same price or less on sale, these are very well constructed and everything I expect from a good set of cans. Soundstage could be better, but those that I've heard costs hundreds more. My previous 'phones were highly regarded ones from the '70s, a set of Sennheiser HD 414s (Sold 3 years ago for much more than I paid for them!), and a set of Koss Pro 4AAs (which I still have). The Momentums almost match the comfort of the the 414s and equal their smooth, effortless sound and are much lighter and infinitely more comfortable than the Pro 4AAs with a similar "meaty" well-balanced sound that I've always enjoyed. Highly recommended as these may be the best headphones I've heard for under $400!

Before I own the "gangsta" Beats New Studio. When I decided to sell them and buy Sennheiser Momentum Over Ear, I made one of the best decision in my life.
I'm not a DJ to have my ears trained with all kind of frequencies, but curiously, it's like that now I'm start to hear my playlists for the first time. I don't believe what I was missing before.
Sennheiser having behind so many years in audition territory that's mean something. Quality, lightweight and refinement it's what I can say about Momentum headphones. And having in addition the music app Neutron in your phone it makes that you do not need anything else...
