Sennheiser Momentum 2 : Been trying headphones lately up to £1000 and while I’m not going to say these outperform their much pricier counterparts the differences to my ears are just that – they are different but not necessarily better or worse

Been trying headphones lately up to £1000 and while i’m not going to say these outperform their much pricier counterparts the differences to my ears are just that – they are different but not necessarily better or worse. If you’ve grown up listening to the slightly exaggerated bass of many budget to medium mainstream cans then the expensive models tend to sound like a compromise between greater detail and lack of bass, especially if like me, your home audio system also incorporates a sub – i have a properly calibrated meridian surround system so by no means a budget setup as my reference and really like these cans for late night and mobile listening. I also think they really hit the sweet spot of price vs performance and definitely worth putting in your shortlist.

Strong bass, exceptional clarity, defined mids, and extreme comfort. I could wear these all day every day. The build quality is superb, and i personally have never found anything i don’t like about them.

These headphones sound great to my ear, everything sounds really clear with no obvious flaws. Build quality is superb and are showing no signs of wear about 8 months of regular use. Only complaints is that the cable feels a bit short for desktop use, though with that said these are designed for on-the-go listening primarily.

Always worth paying as much as you can when it comes to things like this.

What hifi product of the year, and sounds excellent to me. Very happy with quality and design and super happy with the sound. Using with astell and kern ak70, a brilliant combination.

These headphones give fantastic clarity of sound and are very comfortable due to their foam / leather ear guards. They fold away into a handy carrying case when not in use.

Bought these to replace an old well worn set of sennheisers. First of all, i tried a number of different makes to compare before returning to these. Sound balance was just right for my listening tastes and not bass heavy (as was the case with most of the others i tried). I really like the detachable cable (although it’s a bit stiff to remove) and how the ear cups fold up to make storage more compact. They are comfortable to wear for long periods and look good. For the price i think these are excellent. I can’t comment on the durability of them as i haven’t had them long enough, but so far so good and if they are anything like my original pair, then they should give god long service.

These were a gift and first pair of over ear headphones i’ve owned. Sound quality is really very good, not had headphones this good ever. Also they’re comfortable to wear. I wear them daily using my phone on my commute and also at night on my laptop.

Can wear these for hours on end without any discomfort and have great sound isolation – perfect for the office. I have them paired with an audioquest dragonfly red dac – they sound fantastic. Much better sounding than some more expensive headphones i own (akg for instance).

I was after a good sounding pair of portable headphones. After reading many reviews i eventually plumped for these. Have not been disappointed as they sound pretty good with my iphone6s. Have recently ordered a headphone amp will see how that goes. In the meantime would heartily recommend these. Good sound for a good price.

Sound great, the cables a little weak, so i’d recommend an upgrade.

Great headphones, i have a pair of shure se215 that sound great and the momentum also sound great, they’re both different, the shure is more accurate and fantastic sound and the momentum is a bit more warm. They’re different and that’s why i bought bothupdate: couldn’t be more satisfied with the sound quality and comfort, unfortunately made me stop using my shure se215 that i loved. Tried bose and sony wireless, but my wired momentum simply beats them.

Pretty good sounding & stylish. Didn’t quite hit my idea of perfection but that’s my fault for not listening before buying, given how subjective audio can be. Cable lasted well until i destroyed it. Default is iphone cable, but can still play/pause on android. Replacement cable’s a little pricey as it’s a 2. (got official one for £30 w/ inline controls but there’s probably cheaper out there)use for work only since walking with them can be a thuddy. Work well enough for blocking out coworkers, pleased to say.

Punchy bass that doesn’t cloud midrange detail. Though treble may lack a bit of bite. Low impedance makes these very easy to drive. Feel well made & very comfortable.

Excellent sound, folds easily for travel. This works amazing on the go (and on a plane to block out the noise). Money well spent in my opinion. Very highly recommend as a budget high end headphone.

Great allround sound with good separation of base mid and high frequencies. Easy to wear and cuts out outside noise adequately but not to any dangerous level.

Excellent cans, excellent sound and excellent comfort.

Looked at many sets of headphones to use on commuter train and tube trips. Considered bluetooth, noise cancelling and actually thought what’s wrong with a cable and they are around ear anyway so lets give them a go. Looked at the bose, bowers & wilkins and sennheiser and the sennheiser had amazing reviews for sound and i think the look great. I’m on the tube and i can hear nothing but music, so the noise cancelling i wouldn’t value. The cable is no bother and they look great. Top purchase, happy customer.
