Sennheiser Momentum 2 : After a lot of reading reviews

These were recommended to me by a work colleague after my more expensive bose headphones stopped working. Not only as these more comfortable and much easier to put in the ear, the sound quality is better too. They are very comfortable the sound quality is great and the remote control works better than any other i have tried on my samsung phone. Twenty three months after purchasing these headphones one earphone stopped working. This was due to wear and tear. I use these headphones in the gym, on my bike, whilst walking my dog and at work. I didn’t take particularly good care of them if i am honest. Since they were still under warranty (about a week left) i sent them back to sennheiser and within 3 days i had a brand new pair. The service was outstanding. Whilst i didn’t have them i used the pair that came with the phone and it made me realise how good they actually are.

After reading a lot of reviews on these, flairs, kefs etc, i decided to try these based on the fact that i already have a pair of over ear momentum 2s. I wasn’t expecting the bass response of my over ear, and i didn’t get it. That said, i set out to try these with as many different types of music so as to be as helpful a review as i could leave for you. Ok, first up was ‘funky friday’ by dave and freddo. Although this is a reasonably basey song, it also has a good riff and snare along with the lyrics. While the bass was handled, it wasn’t as full as the over ear momentum 2s, which is understandable based on the driver size on these. Then i tried ‘skinny love’ by birdy, a very lyric biased piece with a beautiful piano melody. This was handled as good as the 2s, with no distortion and both the lyrics and piano able to still be heard when on full volume on the phone. After this came emilie sandé ‘clown’, again the piano and lyrics, even at full volume, were handled effortlessly without distortion. To try something a little different, i went back to linkin park and jay-z ‘encore’, the guitar riff was warm and the lyrics from both were handled well.

These are by far my favourite earphones i have ever used. My previous sony pair were in my eyes the only thing i’d ever use for their superb sound quality, and it was after much deliberation and research after they had broken that i decided to get a pair of these. I have never been happier in my life. The hard case it comes in is super high end and they are presented neatly folded in a mould that you can keep inside. I find it impossible to rewind the earphones back into the mould, therefore, i simply took the mould out of the case and viola it looks fine again and easy to put away. As for what you want to hear, the sound is phenomenal. Highs don’t fatigue, mids are super detailed and the low end is punchy and exciting without ever becoming muddy even at high volumes. By all means for the sound you get out of these, they should cost far more. The build quality isn’t as great as what you’d expect, mostly plastic housings other than the disc of metal available on the end that makes it look premium. The cables are flat cables and they’ve never once tangled for me thankfully, ensuring everything works great consistently.

I’ve had these for just under a year now and the sound is great but for past couple of months there has been an intermittent problem with the left bud losing sound. It’s particularly bad at the gym. Very frustrating considering the cost of these things. I’ve had several sets of sennheiser over the years and they have always been brilliant but i feel a little let down by these ones.

Sound quality is unreal, however they feel very flimsy and unrobust compared to the sound magic in ears i had previously. Which i have to say performed almost as well for sound quality at about half the price. The join between the jack and the cable has already started packing up after a few months. I personally have used in ears for decades now, these have probably been the most uncomfortable. After prolonged use i consistently get a headache.

I’ve used sennheiser’s mm70i earphones with my iphones for a few years now, and have always been very happy with them – both from a sound quality and design perspective. The mm70i earphones are no longer available, and as my last pair broke i found my self having to look for an alternative model, and decided to order the m2iei as a reasonable replacement. This review is based on three weeks use of the new m2iei earphones, and in the context of my experience with the mm70i earphones. Sound qualty – the m2ieis generally sound very good (speaking as someone who likes a neutral sound, and is quite fussy on that front). Bass is punchy but not boomy, which is how i like it. However, the treble is a a little harsh for my taste. I prefer the sound of the mm70i. Comfort – they fit my ears well and come with a range of earbuds to fit different sizes. I’ve found them more than comfortable for extended use and they don’t fall out or feel like they will fall out. These earphones are also light weight.
