Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"I believe there is some confusion (because I think some listing here on amazon specifically state over the ear or on the ear - but I think the only differences is the material used on the ear pads themselves - not the size."
_
"I had like so many others read the description and complaints here on amazon about how the headphones are not true Over the ear but rather are on the ear headphones."
_
"net which I don't know if I should mention in this review because Amazon workers may hate me for writing this sentence)."
_
"Unfortunately we were hoping that they'd improve and we got busy and so we missed Amazon's no-question's asked return."
_
"The first pair that Amazon sent had a broken remote, but the replacement seems fine."
_
"The first time i ordered the red black ones...for some reason the item i received didn't meet my expectations; it didn't fit well on my head, also sounded horrible, felt plastic not premium....so i was very upset and returned them to Amazon."
_
"That's my first time to buy things on Amazon and it's so great! "

Audio

Audio:
"Not as great audio quality, but looks pretty neat, and it's very well built."
_
"That's not to say the Sennheiser's sound bad, they are pretty decent, just not a great value for the money, at least in the audio quality category."
_
"So there you have it, I'm not an audiophile but I am pretty anal about the way my audio gear sounds and I am truly impressed with these."
_
"I would even venture to say they don't sound as good as my pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD700s amplified or otherwise."
_
"The first time I plugged it in, it was hard to tell the audio quality between the momentum and the current iphone earbuds."
_
"The only complaint I have, and this is actually kind of super annoying to me, is the audio cables!"
_
"Audio is clear and vibrant just as you would expect from Sennheiser."
_
"The 2 audio cables included along with the case is great addition."
_
"Audio: Solid audio quality but I wouldn't say they deliver spectacular performance."
_
"Good build, great sound (look up any audiophile review if you don't believe me), they look good, and the adjustable angle audio jack is a nice touch."
_
"You get more out of music with a set of cans and these simply brings out the best of your favorite audio."

Balance

Balance:
"The cons are lacking balance, mid is a bit weak and a little hiss and sibilant at quiet environment."
_
"Sound clarity and balance are both great."
_
"In this aspect, the Urbanites are a good balance for me."
_
"Nice balance."
_
"With the Momentum's they have a wonderful balance to both spectrum's of low and high frequencies."
_
"They strike a nice balance between the two and definitely look unique."

Button

Button:
"The track remote is nice, but i wish it was easier to distinguish the 3 buttons through feel, it's hard to isolate the individual controls without looking at the wire."
_
"we werent aware that this product is not compatible with android...the volume button on the cord does not work w android."
_
"I have an Android phone and even though the buttons are functional for iphones, but still am able to use the Google Now talk function and I am able to operate the phone in this manner."
_
"very comfortable and fit over my ears nicely but the pause,play,next trac button is a little awkward to use."
_
"Using a Fiio amplifier that has a bass boost button that works well (unlike bass boost through software for example which I found deteriorates the music a lot), it gives as much bass as the VModa I believe."
_
"Maybe they could have raised the buttons or the labeling, space them out more to make it easier."
_
"The track remote is nice, but i wish it was easier to distinguish the 3 buttons through feel, it's hard to isolate the individual controls without looking at the wire."

Cable

Cable:
"The headphones have always been unwieldy, what with the cord and no good place to put them."
_
"Within a couple months both cables that came with the product broke."
_
"the cable to the end is weak ."
_
"My only complaint is the original cord would get some static when I first fired them up, and would do the same if the jack twisted."
_
"But the cable looks weak, I'm afraid it's not durable."
_
"This frustrates me until I am able to find a better cable to use."
_
"The 2 audio cables included along with the case is great addition."
_
"Stretch the earpads out yourself, and use the plain cable, and you'll likely be in for an excellent ownership experience."
_
"The new model M2 feels great; best sound, wish it had the same cord and connections as this model"
_
"The cable is removable (which is nice) but doesn't stay in (which isn't).The packaging is almost embarrassing."
_
"Excellent sound qualitynegative ; cord his really small and ear cup are really tight around ears"

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Unless you have small ears these won't offer the best comfort for sessions lasting several hours."
_
"Comfort: They're not terrifically comfortable."
_
"They are comfortable but not great for longer periods due to the leather ear cups trapping so much heat."
_
"Being one of the few options at this price point that appeared to offer the features I wanted, I decided to take a chance despite the negative reviews about the comfort and ran into the same issue described by other reviewers: the ear openings are too small and the part of my average-sized ears that does fit in them ends up becoming sore after about 2 hours of use."
_
"I understand the compromise had to be made between portability and comfort."
_
"Best comfort from Bose QC25 headphones - I just hate that they mean one more thing to keep batteries for."
_
"It's perhaps not the most comfortable pair of headphones (it's by no means uncomfortable as long as your ears fit though), but the sound quality is stellar, so 5 stars for me."
_
"Extremely comfortable and sound amazing"
_
"Great sound comfortable"
_
"In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, they are exceedingly comfortable."
_
"Your experience may vary in this regard, but it's clear that the Urbanites are the winner in the comfort category."

Connection

Connection:
"I read some complaints about the wires on the headsets connecting to each cup."
_
"If you use the 3 ring tip the connection isn't great and the headphones sound kind of 'off', but never bad enough that you would think the connection was bad."
_
"The cables are made of Kevlar and are quite strong; However, the connection where the cable plugs into the cans is quite weak, made of cheap plastic."
_
"Actually, I love the sound and comfort of Sennheiser headphones, which is why I bought the HD 580, but the connection broke internally, so I bought the HD 600, but the connection broke internally, and now I see from the one-star reviews that this model continues the ancient design flaw."
_
"The new model M2 feels great; best sound, wish it had the same cord and connections as this model"
_
"The other positives are as follows:1) The cable connection was excellent."
_
"Actually, I love the sound and comfort of Sennheiser headphones, which is why I bought the HD 580, but the connection broke internally, so I bought the HD 600, but the connection broke internally, and now I see from the one-star reviews that this model continues the ancient design flaw."
_
"After I figured out I had a bad cable connection at the headset I was able to really start enjoying these."
_
"I used the excellent Fiio E7 headphone amps connected to my desktop, playing lossless files, and the sound is... its good."
_

Connector

Connector:
"I've had to buy two sets of these headphones as the connector jack is flimsy and breaks easily, resulting in loss of sound in one or both ears."
_
"Good build, great sound (look up any audiophile review if you don't believe me), they look good, and the adjustable angle audio jack is a nice touch."
_
"The cable mini jack and controls are beautiful."
_
"The jack has a cute silver hinge so it can fold perpendicular."
_
"One cable has a nice remote and a jack with 90-degree swivel."
_
"I would also suggest being able to plug the male connector into either ear cups, as the V-Moda allows you to do this."
_

Control

Control:
"While I can control the volume, I am not able to pause or answer my phone without having to pull the phone out of my pocket and stopping it."
_
"Excellent sound, I know they would be a bit tight to start ... not really happy about location of the controls...a bit too close to the headphones."
_
"The track remote is nice, but i wish it was easier to distinguish the 3 buttons through feel, it's hard to isolate the individual controls without looking at the wire."
_
"The inline audio controls don't work with Android devices, but the cable itself works and there's an extra cable included without the controls as well."
_
"It is a little annoying that the cool controls and mic are only for iPhones and that they didn't include one for android and windows phones."
_
"My only complaint is that if you ever have to replace the cable with the controls and mic on it, it costs $115, while the standard cable is $20."
_
"The cable mini jack and controls are beautiful."
_
"It comes standard with Mac compatible built in controls and I ordered extra Android controls for $50."
_
"The only quibble I have is that just like everyone else, Sennheiser only makes a volume phone control compatible with Apple products."
_
"Good mic and iphone control."
_
"Other than that the iPhone controls and microphone were great."

Design

Design:
"These headphones are a must if you are looking for quality with no compromises: beautiful with modern and sleek design, delivers rich and crisp sound and I haven't plugged it into a dedicated DAC yet."
_
"These are just a terrible, terrible, awful design."
_
"My ears aren't particularly large, and are probably on the small side of average to be honest, but the pads are so small that the headphones wind up being incredibly uncomfortable, despite the lightweight design."
_
"My last complaint is partially the design."
_
"Sennheiser should go back to the drawing board and design these in a way these wires can be hidden without exposure."
_
"And as much as I like my 650's, I've always had a bit of buyers remorse because I find them uncomfortable for long stretches despite their cushy design."
_
"-Design is great, classic, retro but at the same time modern and appealing.$300 was a bit much for the original price but hey, $150 now?"
_
"Overall extremely well designed and could easily be seen as a fashion friendly headphone if you're into that kind of stuff."
_
"Everything from actual product build to packaging it arrived in is premium quality and great design."
_
"The case this product comes in is also very well designed."
_
"Simple and beautiful design, great quality and sound."

Durable

Durable:
"But the cable looks weak, I'm afraid it's not durable."
_
"Not only is it beautiful, but it's durable, lightweight, attentive to detail, and portable."
_
"This, combined with the fact that the whole pair of headphones is incredibly flexible, makes for a remarkably durable set of cans."
_
"Build quality is amazing and durable as a portable headset should be."
_
"Build quality is also superior to all other headphones I've owned, with the genuine leather giving it a nice feel and also a very solid and durable assembly."
_
"the headphones themselves are nice enough, seem durable, comfortable as an on ear, but as an over ear.....it's debatable."
_
"Build quality:The headband is both comfortable and simple which translates to a very light and durable headband."

Fit

Fit:
"They fit me, but if you have larger ears, you might have problems."
_
"The first time i ordered the red black ones...for some reason the item i received didn't meet my expectations; it didn't fit well on my head, also sounded horrible, felt plastic not premium....so i was very upset and returned them to Amazon."
_
"Fit was too uncomfortable for me with my glasses on."
_
"They are comfortable to wear for long periods of time (though the ear holes may be a bit small if you have larger ears), sounds great for every type of music I have tried so far, and they look great (I have received several compliments on them in the short time I have owned them).My only complaint, and it is minor, is that you will have to spend some time adjusting them to fit your head."
_
"Could be bigger to avoid ear fitting issues but it's just a very minor complaint."
_
"One of the major complaints about these cans were that they were too small for some people's ears, so I was worried they wouldn't fit mine at first."
_
"I'll keep them, but these deliver middle-of-the-road sound quality and fit, at best."
_
"It's perhaps not the most comfortable pair of headphones (it's by no means uncomfortable as long as your ears fit though), but the sound quality is stellar, so 5 stars for me."
_
"They fit well on my head and ears."
_
"However, I have been able to fit my ears into them just barely, and have had little pain in the entire 5 and a half hours straight I've been wearing them."
_
"If your ears fit, they are wonderful."

Heavy

Heavy:
"And today I just noticed the problem while I was listening some heavy metals, and there is no way I can ignore the sharp difference."
_
"I found these to be a bit heavy in the low-mids which was disappointing given the high praise these receive."
_
"The Momentums have clean mids and highs and are just barely less analytical than the PSB M4U1, whose sound I enjoyed, but I returned them because they were heavy and uncomfortable and could not comfortably wear them for 30 - 45 minutes."
_
"Ive had these for about am month now and have placed heavy amounts of time on them to say they are a very well made pair of headphones."
_
"but none the less if you want to not ride the beats bandwagon with their bass heavy plastic looking headphones for hipsters these are a great decision and including the refreshed 2.0 model that just came out"
_
"Some brands may sound great but can be too heavy."
_
"theyre not large or heavy, which is nice, comfortable in that sense."
_
"I convinced myself, while waiting for the Momentum to arrive, that the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X may have given the best bang for the buck but it was heavy and big, which it is, AND the V-Moda M100 put too much emphasis on bass (according to the reviews) and is over $100 in price difference."

Level

Level:
"I changed the earcup pads to the XL memory foam size and it was better, but not as good as for example the Sony or KEF in comfort level."
_
"However, the comfort level is not amazing."
_
"I'm used to the Bose QuietComfort (over ear), but the Momentum could not reach that level of wearing comfort at all."
_
"Generally speaking,the momentum balanced excellent between the three level."
_
"Sound quality is amazing, but it would have been awesome if the comfort level (after long wearing) would be as good too."
_
"Unfortunately, I'm sending these ones back and upgrading to the ones with sound reduction so that I can comfortably listen to my music at normal levels with out everyone around me hearing what I'm listening to."
_
"The comfort level of these is very high."

Light

Light:
"It sounds excellent and it's light on the head."
_
"I also like the BOSE AE2's (older model) that are LIGHT YEARS more comfortable then the Sennheiser Momentum."
_
"They're pretty light, well constructed and feel premium!"
_
"Which brings us to...PORTABILITYUrbanites: 9.5Momentums: 7The Momentums' case does deserve some credit here: It's light, it's durable, and it's a lot less bulky than some other headphones you might see."

"Built: comfortable, light, sturdy."

Listening

Listening:
"I have had these phones since they were first released and seldom use them as they are incredibly uncomfortable for long periods of listening."
_
"Not comfortable for more than an hour of listening."
_
"These headphones are great for listening, but I wouldn't recommend using them in a professional setting."
_
"I felt uncomfortable listening to my music at even lower volumes because it's as if I'm not even wearing headphones."
_
"Though they're not the perfect headphones in every respect, e. g., I found their rather small ear cups somewhat uncomfortable for my long listening sessions."
_
"And today I just noticed the problem while I was listening some heavy metals, and there is no way I can ignore the sharp difference."
_
"Crisp clear sound with great mid range and clarity throughout the listening spectrum."
_
"Great sound quality and helps listening to recorded interviews"
_
"Superior sound whether listening to music or working online."
_
"I have this model and the on-ear version and while that version gives a slight Bass bump they both have been neutral enough in my listening palette to keep me very happy."
_
"Comfortable for hours of listening4."

Material

Material:
"The build quality and use of premium materials make for a beautiful set of headphones that can be worn for hours on end."
_
"But, the covers are a pleather suede type material and look great, and feel terrific actually.3."
_
"Materials quality and style are superb as well."
_
"They are very well made and the materials felt great."
_
"Fortunately, the inner portion of the pads are made of a soft cloth material which makes for a comfortable fit."

Metal

Metal:
"BUT, two issues: they are not very comfortable; sure, they are solid metal and very sturdy, but not comfortable."
_
"And today I just noticed the problem while I was listening some heavy metals, and there is no way I can ignore the sharp difference."
_
"Your hair gets caught, pulled, and broken in the metal fixation that the ear pieces slide around in."
_
"The plastic top and metal sides do feel durable, but their sheer geometry allows stray items to press against their drivers, which are more vulnerable than the Urbanites', and the fact that they don't fold means that throwing your backpack down somewhere could unintentionally cause their aluminum supports to bend."
_
"The band is a nice all metal piece and the driver housing is nicely simple but elegant."
_
"The top padding is a nice suede leather (genuine as well), with bare metal prongs for the headphones (operated by sliding it down)."
_
"90 degree metal joint near plug is a nice touch too."
_
"The black with red stitching cords and silver metal accents looks great."

Music

Music:
"I listen to a lot of americana, folk, and indie music and the quality of these headphones shines through with these genres of music that don't emphasize robust base and low end."
_
"This does not bode well for long music sessions."
_
"I felt uncomfortable listening to my music at even lower volumes because it's as if I'm not even wearing headphones."
_
"While its probably fun for music, for movies it'd be terrible."
_
"It's like missing 75% of the music!"
_
"Third, and I don't know how to exactly describe this, but the soundstage was not good to my ears at all, it sounded like the music is coming from headphones, you could not be mistaken and think it's coming from real-life, or even full-size speakers in a room; and certainly not compared to the Philips Fidelio X2 or even the V-Moda M-100."
_
"If you love music and enjoy jus as a fan like me, you find that this headphones are the best complement you may find."
_
"You get more out of music with a set of cans and these simply brings out the best of your favorite audio."
_
"He says he can not hear anything except the music and that the noise cancelling feature is amazing!"
_
"But I bought these along with the Seinheisher HD 970 headphones and I thought this were much brighter, louder, and had a bigger bass impact which I enjoy with any modern music."
_
"Superior sound whether listening to music or working online."

Packaging

Packaging:
"Packaging from Sennheiser is a bit excessive."
_
"Some of the packages were broken when I received it."
_
"Everything from actual product build to packaging it arrived in is premium quality and great design."
_
"The cable is removable (which is nice) but doesn't stay in (which isn't).The packaging is almost embarrassing."
_
"I loved the sound they produced, how stylish they were, and how well packaged it all was, but the ear opening wasn't designed for people with larger ears."
_
"Fast shipping and perfect package"
_
"However, if you have small ears, or perhaps no ears at all, then here's some of the better things:- They sound fantastic- The style is nice (although that's subjective)- They're light- The build quality is high- They have a inline remote that works with iPhones- The packaging was phenomenal - Apple-level - I really felt like I was opening something special, which ultimately made things even more disappointing."

Performance

Performance:
"I've been using these headphones for about 3 months now & overall I'm pretty underwhelmed by their performance."
_
"I still found the Urbanites to be somewhat tinny at the very top of its high range, but overall, they were both clear, crisp, and gave a very solid performance on a wide variety of tracks."
_
"Audio: Solid audio quality but I wouldn't say they deliver spectacular performance."
_
"I didn't splurge to get the newer model of the Momentums, but for what I use it for, they perform very well."

"Terrible sound quality for the price."
_
"That's not to say the Sennheiser's sound bad, they are pretty decent, just not a great value for the money, at least in the audio quality category."
_
"I can't recommend these enough, especially given the discounted price (which is apparently due to a newer version being out)."
_
"Given the price of these headphones, disappointed in quality."
_
"The only thing that I regret is that only a couple of days after I purchased them, they got a price drop."
_
"I am underwhelmed by the sound experience - not at all happy with the sound quality given the price."

Quality

Quality:
"Only complaint would be the sound quality, it's not terrible but not amazing"
_
"I own Bose and Klipsch headphones (along with another 5-6 crappy ones) at the moment, and the sound quality of these is on par with the Klipsch (way better than Bose, beats, and anything else in a big box store.)"

"Not as great audio quality, but looks pretty neat, and it's very well built."
_
"That's not to say the Sennheiser's sound bad, they are pretty decent, just not a great value for the money, at least in the audio quality category."
_
"The placement of the ears are whats kind of immediately causing some discomfort, the quality of the cushions is ok but the main issue is that they're not really true over ear headphones since they kind of sit on the edges of your ears a bit which can be irritating."
_
"Only complaint would be the sound quality, it's not terrible but not amazing"
_
"Excellent quality."

Size:
"Unless you have small ears these won't offer the best comfort for sessions lasting several hours."
_
"As others have pointed out, the ear pads are very small and uncomfortable to wear for long periods."
_
"The only slight complaint I have is that the earcups are pretty small and I have pretty big ears so I do get a bit of discomfort after an hour or so."
_
"Not perfect simply because the muffs are too small for a normal adult."
_
"Good, punchy bass, but not overwhelming, with vocals (mid-range) just about perfect and very clear but not harsh highs (like cymbals, bells, high piano notes, etc).I am rating these 4 mainly because the ear cups really are a bit on the small side and start to get uncomfortable even for me with average size ears and when I wear my glasses, then cause my ears to push against the frame causing some discomfort after an hours or so."
_
"Amazing sound - slightly small ear cups."
_
"), a nice size (although the case is bulky), and the wire is detachable (so replacement if ever needed is possible!"
_
"It really is pretty small, it'd be more fulfilling to get more encapsulating headphones to provide a more satisfying experience."
_
"so to make it easy for you to compare, the size is equal to 3 penny and almost half."

Stylish:

Treble

Treble:
"Very comfortable for people with very small ears case is 6 10 cord is very thin and fragile rubber like feeling my sony pulse elite headset sounds twice as better but not as comfortable for 150 the bass sounds muffled treble could be stronger in the highs would not recommend paying over 100 for these"
_
"And no harsh treble unpleasant brightness."
_
"But I found that it clearly lacked treble and the sound was not clear, not high-definition, and it sounded very muffled."
_
"Interestingly, the QC3 sounds very warm and not harsh at all, but it lacks treble and clarity so much that the sound is not clear at all, it's muffled."

"Maybe on some specific songs it can work, but to me it's unpleasant, the harshness of the treble and how it sounds digital (as in heavily compressed music that you're streaming online from a bad website and with digital artifacts).2."
_
"Treble is the best of all, with the most detail as well as natural tones."
_
"This is probably the best treble I have heard."
_
"The bass and treble are at perfect levels for someone that wishes to enjoy various genres of music."
_
"As a final note before the comparison: it seems that some people want more treble overly bright headphones to have a very clear and open sound."
_
"Yes, some of those may have very different characteristics, but that I tried them in my quest for warm, natural-sounding headphones that would have adequate bass but yet would also be clear WITHOUT any harsh treble or being too bright.3) I've found a very significant difference of opinion in reviews, at times wondering if I was listening to a completely different pair of headphones than some reviewers."

Value

"While its probably fun for music, for movies it'd be terrible."
_
"If you ever plan to watch movies on the go, this pair is quite well suited."
_
"While its probably fun for music, for movies it'd be terrible."
_
"The headphone provide you with strong bass as well as clear sound for music and movies."
_
"I really hope that the ear cups do not routinely come off of the headphones, as they really do have a great sound with music and movies."
_
"Now when I elaborate on this I will say that it can well convince you that you are listening to your music, movies, or other entertainment in a smallish-medium sized room, notice I am not saying a large room because I don't think they replicate that sound well."

Volume

Volume:
"The only downside is the volume needs to be louder than usual on my ipod."
_
"I felt uncomfortable listening to my music at even lower volumes because it's as if I'm not even wearing headphones."
_
"While I can control the volume, I am not able to pause or answer my phone without having to pull the phone out of my pocket and stopping it."
_
"Strangely, with higher volumes, sometimes it didn't sound as good and it could become harsher sounding."
_
"No feedback, good mike quality, volume switch effective and convenient."
_
"we werent aware that this product is not compatible with android...the volume button on the cord does not work w android."
_
"i will say that just a phone or ipod will give a good sound but may not give the volume that you want if you like things loud like i do."
_
"Quality is very high, the earphone jack is a bit awkward at first because you have to stick it in and then rotate it for a good lock, otherwise I only hear volume from one ear."
_
"The only quibble I have is that just like everyone else, Sennheiser only makes a volume phone control compatible with Apple products."
_
"I got my Momentum at a great value for the sound quality, comfort, and extras (hard carrying case, volume play pause remote on the wire, etc.)"
_
"The volume limit on these are good enough and not overbearing."

Weight

Weight:
"My ears aren't particularly large, and are probably on the small side of average to be honest, but the pads are so small that the headphones wind up being incredibly uncomfortable, despite the lightweight design."
_
"I was really disappointed to have to return these as I was between these and the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x which weigh in at 10 oz, and have rather unappealing form and aesthetics."
_
"The Momentums however dont fold up, but I think this helps keep the weight down without losing durability."
_
"Not only is it beautiful, but it's durable, lightweight, attentive to detail, and portable."
_
"Lightweight and good looking to boot."
_
"Lightweight, crisp and clear sound, for the price these could be the best headphones I've ever bought."
_
"I think these headphones look nice, sleek design and are very lightweight, but the cans are tiny."
_
"Plus they are good looking, light weight, and comfortable during long listening periods."
_
"Great headphones, very light weight and great sounding too."

iPhone

iPhone:
"They sound great with an iPhone 5 but if you really want them to blow you away invest in a decent headphone amp."
_
"I love these headphones I use them everyday for ps4 and iPhone."
_
"However, to really get the best out of them I would recommend using them with an iPad, iPhone or one of the HTC phones as they tend to have more power to drive the phones."
_
"Good mic and iphone control."
_
"My iPhone 6 Plus has no problems reproducing high- quality sounds and it has very little drain on my battery."
