    Sennheiser 506231 Reviews

    Momentum In-Ear Headphones (Apple iOS, Red) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Momentum lite Fits great. Owning the over the ear ones for a while and being extremely satisfied with those, I couldn't wait until these came out for daily use out and about. I pre ordered them and had to wait for about a month until they came out. Overall appearance is dlightly beliw the rest of the momentum line, does not have the luxureous feel abd touch. Sound is crisp, a little light on base I have to say (even from someone who listens mostly to (indie)rock). In general I am happy with these, allthough when they break or get lost I probably will switch.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good pair of earphones I have gone through many earphones and I must say that although this doesn't blow the competition out of the water, they are a very nice pair of headphones. The length of the cable is just right, and the fit for the ear is personally comfortable. While running I haven't really seen much in terms of them falling off. The sound quality is very good and crystal clear. Not the very best sound I have ever heard but honestly decent for their price. It's not a perfect noise cancellation but it does get most of the sound out from the outside. The only negative I might give them would be the cable that comes out of the ear piece is forced outward by a little ring and makes it kind of awkward.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but ...... The sound is great although it is a bit heavy on the base. The earbuds are long and they stick out like the plugs in Shrek's ears. They can be easily dislodged. Also, the ear buds do not fit my left ear, they fall out. Reviews claim that foam alternatives will correct this. Unfortunately, these foam tips can only be purchased from Sennheiser; other commercial tips will not fit since the nozzle's diameter is very large. Sennheiser is back-ordered on them. Also they do not sell a set with different sizes so you have to buy each size separately which starts to become expensive. The portion of the cord connecting to the ipod/phone is very thin and appears delicate for everyday usage.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade from the Apple stock ear buds Having owned and loved my audiophile grade over ear Sennheiser headphones for many years, I finally decided to purchase a more portable version from the same company for my summer vacation. I will wtart with setting up expectations: these are not audiophile grade earphones, so if this is what one is looking for, look elsewhere. These are in my opinion an excellent upgrade from the Apple stock ear buds as recently experienced in 2 long flights. Once the proper fit is adjusted with the different sized rubber pads, these plugs offer good noise insulation, and both highs and low sound much better than the stock Apple buds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Buds... I've had many pairs of earbuds over the years, but none have worked as well, or sounded as good as Sennheiser. It's a brand that even professional audio people use, and if you care about the quality of your sound, you'll understand as soon as you listen to a favorite song, through buds, or a pair of headphones. I especially like the right-angle jack, which allows the entire assembly to ride inside my iPod case without stressing the connection between wire and jack. The only thing I would change is the length of cord. Another foot would allow for more comfort during the winter months, with it's extra layers of clothing. But the quality of sound counts for all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sell your Earpods and Buy the Momentum!!! Main use during my morning and evening commute on the subway here in NYC. Way better than the earpods that came with my IPhone. Sound is more on the colorful side which is ok with me since I listen to different genre of music.I really like the cable feels durable enough for everyday use and the case not too small not too big.For $ this is a steal the quality and sound are better than some of the expensive ones in the market.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall quality My iPhone headphones were broken and was looking for a new one that could be good enough for listening music, primarily while commuting via subway. I'm extremely happy about my choice. The sound quality of these headphones are good enough for the kind of music that I hear (soft rock, pop, and R&B). The cords are of great quality and they don't get tangled. Microphones are of good quality as well, suitable for long conversations. The length might have a little shorter, might be couple of inches. Apart from that rest is all good. Cheers!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cable does not last Sound quality is good as to be expected from Sennheiser. But the cable sheath started to split open near the plug only a month after purchase. Doesn't look like it will last much longer. This problem could have been easily avoided if they had put a strain relief by the plug, but instead they did almost he exact opposite and made a very soft cable (with even more delicate seams due to it being a not round cable), going inside a very hard plastic plug. Very badly designed.
