'Sennheiser's Momentum range grows and so does our admiration for it.These are supern in-ears for the money' What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision 2016. Five star review.
Sennheiser sound quality Designed to have the same award-winning sound as the rest of the Momentum range, the M2IEi headphones benefit from a huge head start. Supremely well-balanced and even-handed, the Momentum M2 IEi's don't favour bass over other frequencies. Instead you get a rhythmic, punchy bass response that blends seamlessly with a natural mid-range and smooth yet detailed treble performance.
Angle adjustment for comfort In addition to their class-leading sound, these striking headphones are also some of the most comfortable. With 15 degrees of bud adjustment, getting an ergonomic fit is easier than usual. What's more, the narrow sound pipe and choice of four sizes of sleeves make these exceptionally comfortable to wear.
Apple iOS compatible With its Apple iOS compatible remote and mic, the Momentum M2 IEi headphones are the perfect partner for your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPhone Touch. The inline smart remote with microphone makes for easy hands-free calls and quick access to music playback. Further neat touches include the angled plug and tangle-free cable, making these earphones ideal for regular travel, especially with their robust carry case.
Comfortable, stylish and, above all superb-sounding, the Sennheiser Momentum's move the game on.
Are the headphones wireless? Optional requires a Bluetooth transmitter.
Do the headphones feature active noise cancelling technology to block outside noise?
Headphone sensitivity is measured in dB. The lower the figure, the more powerful the driving amplifier needs to be. Headphones for use on portables need to be of higher sensitivity than home hi-fi ones.
Impedance is measured in ohms and should be matched carefully to the driving amplifier for the best sound quality and reliability.
Frequency response is measured in Hz and gives an indication of how low and how high the headphones will go.

update 6 months oni reviewed these headphones back in October 16 and liked the headphones a lot. However i do have to now question how durable these headphones are. One side stopped working and the outer cable came away from the jack lead so the build quality is not that good. I am used to headphones lasting about two years with daily use. A colleague who also bought a pair has the same problem with the outer cable coming away at the jack end. These are the first ones that have become faulty in such a short space of time.
The reason i still recommend them is that the staff at Richer Sounds replaced them without question. No quibble, no mess just a straight swap which i was more than happy with as i do like these headphones. The replacements do seem to have a different cable (slightly harder material so not sure if it was a common problem and Sennheiser changed the cable material). i would still recommend these earphones but i would say get them from Richer as their customer service is fantastic.

always falling out my earsUnlike my other in ear headphones the M2 IEi are always falling out of my ears - its a great pity as the sound is great but every time I move my head the liable to fall out. Looks like another pair will have to be purchased.

Excellent service from Richer Sounds as usual and a great headphone.We tried several different headphones upto 200 pounds in price but these were a clear winner for us in terms of design and sound quality. They were also the best fit for my smallish ears. The service was great as usual from the team at RS so all happy all roundm

Well worth the money, excellent sound quality.These headphones are small and so easy to carry around while being extremely good quality. The build quality is good so I don't feel like I'll break them, and the sound quality is incredible. There are no drawbacks.

Great earphonesBought these after reading several reviews. Have always liked Sennheiser kit and have enjoyed a cheaper pair for ears.
Flat cable on these means no more tangles.
Great price and service as usual from the Richer sounds staff in Hanley.

Exclllent value for moneyI read the reviews, especially what hi fi who said at £90 these were some of the best headphones and they couldn't find a signed negative. So for the amazing price of £65 from richer sounds it was a no brainier. Great quality, great sound and simple call and reservation service. A good experience and great product.

Excellent sound quality.These are the best-sounding in-ear headphones I have owned, certainly a huge improvement on the ones that ship with Apple devices. Fit is reasonable, as someone who struggles with this.

Sennheisers Momentums rocking it!The quality of manufacture and the look of these headphones will impress you. The sound quality is excellent with great bass and sharp highs. I'm sure if my iPhone could put out more signal strength these could easily cope, I listen to everything on one setting - LOUD and these babies always cope without getting flustered.
The carry case is top gear and helps you look after your purchase, cheap these are not but I reckon you get what you pay for!
I recommend these to anyone wanting a really good sound without paying silly money.
