SENNHEISER MOMENTUM IN-EAR WIRELESS

Design & Construction

The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless is Sennheiser's debut neckband style in-ear wireless headphone. The neckband is made rigid with soft-stitched sheepskin nappa leather. On the left side of the neckband there is the (Back-Front): Status LED, the power button, Vol + button, Play/Pause button and Vol - button. On the right side, there is the NFC tag. The left side band exterior bears the Sennheiser logo while the right bears the 'SENNHEISER' words. Indeed, a cool-looking, stylish neckband. Pressing once on the power button allows users to check the battery life of the device. The front left is where the Micro-USB port lies underside the cover. I tested the mic on these to take calls and it proves to work well. The caller on the other end didn't know I had used the mic on these to communicate. There are also different size of buds for one to find the best fit.  When having the neckband around your neck, you won't notice that due to its light-weight. It is also worth noting that there is a vibration alert feature that will vibrate the left side of the neckband when a call comes in. Having a range of colours will allow consumers to express themselves, but sadly, Sennheiser only sell these in matte black with red accents. This doesn't give consumers of the mass population a chance to express themselves. The neckband feels durable enough to take a beating. The earbuds themselves bear the Sennheiser logo in chrome while the wires are black and red in colour. There isn't a magnetic buds feature to keep the buds neat on your body when you are not using them. Hence, they do hang down rather awkwardly on your upper body. 

Sound Quality

If you love a bright sound signature with punchy bass, then look no further. From my personal experience, the stainless steel acoustic tunnels do a great job in reproducing the mids and highs clearly. The bass is boomy and gives a satisfying thump in your ear. Tracks of all genres ranging from the heavy bass ones to those with lots of instruments or vocals perform fantastic. The product definitely lives up to its renowned Momentum name.

Connectivity & Portability

The Momentum In-Ear Wirelss connects via Bluetooth Ver 4.1 and fitted with AptX Audio Codec; meant for providing clearer wireless transmission. There is also NFC to allow users to connect easily. It comes with a hard carrying case which helps to protect it from unwanted scratches and drops. Its battery life peaks at a maximum of 10 hours and does not offer fast charge. It does charge up in 1.5 hours though.
