Pros & Cons

The Pros. The Sennheiser Momentum in-ear earbuds are very well designed earbuds with a sleek and modern look. They produce good bass response with an emphasis on the midrange and low-end frequencies, and are great for those who enjoy bass heavy music. The Sennheiser Momentum in-ear has very good sound quality and matches that of a triple driver IEM. They also represent good value for money and are some of the best collectible Sennheiser earbuds you can find.

The Cons. These earbuds may feel slightly bulky when worn, and are definitely not the type of earbuds you would want to wear in the gym or while jogging. They also have a slightly warmer sound signature which may or may not be to your liking.

Sound Performance

The Sennheiser Momentum is capable of producing very high quality sound and good bass response with its 18-ohm dynamic transducer. The sound quality is simply excellent both through the earbuds and the microphone – listening to music through these earbuds is a very enjoyable experience, with good emphasis at the midrange and low end frequencies. We would go as far as to say that these earbuds perform on par with triple driver armature in-ear monitors. The treble feels well extended and airy, and the bass beats in EDM and rock music felt punchy, deep and crystal clear. The balanced sound is complemented by a multilayer soundstage that feels present but not as good as the Sennheriser IE80s. Listening to classical and vocal music through these earbuds was pure bliss, with crystal clear vocal reproduction that sounded natural and lifelike. These earbuds really do the job of bringing out the details in the music with an added bass response. Our overall assessment of these earbuds is that their sound quality is excellent especially at the mid and lower frequency range.

Build Quality

The Sennheiser Momentum in-ear earbuds has a sturdy build quality that looks and feels aesthetically pleasing. We particularly liked the high-gloss finish and the mirror chrome logo detail which made these earbuds look really cool straight out of the box. The polycarbonate and machined stainless steel design looks very durable and solid. These earbuds also come with a 3-button in-line remote with an integrated microphone that is optimized for either iOS devices or Android smartphones. The earbuds come with a 1.3m elliptical cable with an angled 3.5mm audio jack which provides a tangle free listening experience. We also liked the fact that the manufacturer provided us with extra sets of silicone earbuds, together with a carry case to easily store the earbuds on the go.


The Sennheiser Momentum earbuds are very comfortable to wear and feel lightweight when worn in the ears. We had no issues wearing these earbuds for prolonged periods of time without feeling any ear fatigue from listening to music. That being said, these earbuds may feel slightly bulky due to their size and may not be best suited for those who intend to use these earbuds for sports activities such as jogging or running as these may fall off. These earbuds work best for sedentary listening or for travel. The microphone and hands free call phone functions work great and are convenient to use especially if you driving on the road.

The Verdict?

The Sennheiser Momentum in-ears are incredibly aesthetically appealing with a sleek modern design and very detailed sound performance that focuses on the midrange and low-end frequencies. It is one of the few earbuds that truly combines stylistic design with high quality audio – you get very crisp highs, good midrange and very punchy bass from these earbuds. The high-gloss finish and mirror chrome logo looks extremely sleek and the earbuds feel very comfortable to wear; the entire package also comes with multiple earbuds of different sizes to choose from. They provide the sound quality of a triple driver armature IEM without going too steep on the price range, and produce a very good level of bass that does not feel overwhelming or muddy into the midrange. Overall, the Sennheiser Momentums are some of the earbuds you can find that excel at the mid and lower frequency ranges, and come in a classy design that you will definitely enjoy. Do note that they come in separate versions for iOS and Android smartphones, so be sure to choose the right version for your smartphone.
