Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Review

By  |  0 Comments

Sennheiser has been one of the names associated with good sound on the go. Its Momentum series has been around for a while and today we try and check how worthy the In-Ear model really is for its price of about Rs. 6,800.

This pair of earphones comes in a nice, compact hard case with a removable plastic lining tray for carrying the earphones around without getting them tangled (though it requires couple of minutes to coil them inside). You also get extra pair of eartip adaptors so you could use as per your size and shape.

On unwrapping and holding the earphones for the first time, you will notice its premium Black and Red look and tangle-free build, but plastic external wiring instead of anything metallic may put a few people off. Wire posts at ends are attached in a metal frame; ear buds and lining are equipped with Sennheiser’s transducer technology. On the wiring, you get in-line mic, volume controls alongside pause and play button – clad in the same Black and Red tone.

I tried the In-Ear earphones with an iPhone 5, a Honor 6 Plus, and a Windows PC; while the Pause/ Play button worked with all, Volume controls didn’t with the iPhone.

Using them on the go wasn’t a problem as I didn’t find the earphones to be loose and was quite satisfied with how they fitted and hung when commuting. the earphones seem to follow typical Sennheiser sound with clear vocals and balance maintained between ranges. I found the bass level to be decent, but thought the pair to keep up struggled when it came to treble and mids. While it can handle high and low pitch pretty well for a pair at this price, I think in-ear mic quality is somewhere it sort of lags behind among other leading earphones in the same price range, especially for sub-genres of Rock and Metal. The noise-cancelling feature works really well for a noisy place, placing its noise-cancelling as among the best in this segment.

The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear leave a bit of mixed reaction – it has good tone and bass level, rich noise-cancelling and good build quality, but struggles relatively when it comes to treble. In a nutshell, if you want overall a good package of balance mids and clear voice tones and bass, the Sennheiser Momentum is surely worthy your consideration while making that purchase decision.

Student. I also write a bit about phones, apps, and stuff here and there. Almost nobody.
