Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Button

Button:
"the remote is bulky and hard to find the right button without looking, the basic iphone headphone remote is much better."
_
"But high volume sound distorting.2 Button control is close to your ear, hard to control but good for micphone.3 The case is too big.4 It is very hard to hold the phone when you walking."
_
"Most disappointing was the fact that the play pause call button didn't work properly."
_
"The buttons on the wired remote are easy to use."
_
"The headset buttons function properly, sound quality is great as well"

_
"I have an LG G3 phone for which I am able to change the song and volume from the buttons on the cable."
_
"The pause play and volume buttons are nice and to me atleast, are better to the touch than the one's that came with my iPhone 6.Something you can't see in the picture is that the buds are curved at angle."

Cable

Cable:
"I know some reviewers have complained about the long length of the cord but I like it."
_
"noise isolation is awful because of the sound the cord makes each time you touch it...forget about walking with these on your ears, it's so painful and weird to hear even the slightest touch of the cord on your clothes....ear buds are not comfortable, tried several sizes...totally made me gave up on in-ear headphones."
_
"Again I try to use electrical tape but it doesn't hold well because of the lip where the cable meets the jack."
_
"Negatives- The wire, cord, is very VERY long."
_
"The rubber coating of the cable is prone to wearing down and degrading at the right angle plug."
_
"The cord is substantial ( that was the problem with my klipsch) hopefully that will help with their durability."
_
"Built in volume control on ear bud cable is a nice added feature, it eliminated the need to remove cell phone or other music device from pocket to adjust volume."
_
"These headphones were wrapped up nice and neat in the case, which has a plastic insert in which the headphones can be placed, and the cable wrapped around for great storage."
_
"Deep bass that blocks out noise and--the best feature--it's easy to instantly remember which cord is for the left ear and which is for the right ear (spoiler: the right earbud has the mini remote on it's cord)."
_
"The cord length is perfect."
_
"great sound but the cables are a few inches too long so they dangle when your phone is in your pocket."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I was on my fourth pair of B&W; C5s when I picked these up (because to be honest, they break, a lot) and while they sound fantastic and look great, the comfort isn't great for all day listening or exercising and they are not very durable."
_
"Compared to a Slipsch S4, Momentum headphone doesn't sound as good, easily falls off my ear, and it's not as comfortable."
_
"The included earbud tips aren't so good though, they do the job but I wouldn't call them comfortable."
_
"Comfortable, good sound, and good price."
_
"Great sound quality, good comfort."
_
"They feel extremely comfortable and curve to the inner ear quite nicely."

"Very comfortable as well."

Control

Control:
"But high volume sound distorting.2 Button control is close to your ear, hard to control but good for micphone.3 The case is too big.4 It is very hard to hold the phone when you walking."
_
"Unfortunately, some android devices might not support it since I know for sure that Moto implements a different wiring which is not compatible with other common headphone controls."
_
"Built in volume control on ear bud cable is a nice added feature, it eliminated the need to remove cell phone or other music device from pocket to adjust volume."
_
"I own an LG G4 and while the packaging states use for Samsung products, the media and mix control works perfect with my LG."
_
"Love the sound, the fit, the sound control, the design."
_
"I'm able to use the microphone for calls and control playing music."
_

Earphone

Earphone:
"Honestly, really disappointed about the earphones!"
_
"The earphones are not nearly as good as a soundabsorbant as other products as you still hear a lot of noises around you while listening to music (especially in public places or on the bus where it gets really annoying!"
_
"Often I've found problems with the build quality of given earphones and headphones from Sennheiser - but in this case - almost flawless."
_
"One thing to note however is that the highs were quite ear-piercing, making the earphones a little unbearable at higher volumes, or with a song that had an emphasis on female vocals."
_
"When an earphone is heavy it feels uncomfortable after a period of time."
_
"The earphones are just perfect but the only downside is that the difference between the sizes of medium and large for the earpieces is far too great, so none of them fits my ears well enough but other then that i recommend them, the color is great, sound is awesome, build quality is good, just wish they make Bluetooth earpieces like plantronics."
_
"So far the best in ear earphones that I had."
_
"Great product, a bit longer than most earphones, but it was not a big issue! "
_
"Great bass for these little earphones, i would recommend them for sure"
_
"One of the best earphones i have had."
_
"Fabulous earphones!"

Fit

Fit:
"I bought tips from different brands and they fit very awkwardly so beware!"
_
"Great sound but the opening for the sound didn't fit well in my ear canal so it didn't seal well regardless of the size of ear piece I used."
_
"Their fit was the problem."
_
"When i switched from medium to small the block-out advantage faded, my ear canals apparently didn't fit small, as a result the earbuds seemed weak at this point."
_
"Some sound great but don't fit well."
_
"This not is the best sounding but fits really well."
_
"Ear buds fit comfortably and snug in ears, never had an issue with them moving around or coming loose while in use."
_
"Fits comfortably."
_
"Good sound but the design just doesn't 'fit' me."
_
"Fit and comfort are very good."
_
"The package includes several different kinds of tips; most people will find at least one of the included options to fit well and comfortably."

Headphone

Headphone:
"Excellent headphones, the mic feels a little flimsy but the sound is crystal clear with a booming bass, which is more than I could ask for at this price."
_
"the shape of the headphone is just weird...returned it within a week."
_
"At that point, I thought it was something wrong with my iPhone, not my headphones."
_
"Compared to a Slipsch S4, Momentum headphone doesn't sound as good, easily falls off my ear, and it's not as comfortable."
_
"Some people give the Beats a back-handed complement, calling them inoffensive, but being inoffensive is my first and greatest requirement for a headphone--if the sound is offending you, there's something wrong."
_
"They come off more frequently than is reasonable; I'll sometimes pull out the headphones and see that a tip is missing, then go rooting for it in my pocket."
_
"Great headphones for the time I used them."
_
"After finding a phone that can take advantage of quality headphones, these were a match made for my phone."
_
"Excellent headphones, the mic feels a little flimsy but the sound is crystal clear with a booming bass, which is more than I could ask for at this price."
_
"These headphones were wrapped up nice and neat in the case, which has a plastic insert in which the headphones can be placed, and the cable wrapped around for great storage."

_

"Sound seems good and mic seems good, I don't really like how the earbuds curve but it looks really fancy and shiny :)"

Noise

Noise:
"Passive noise isolation is good, very little outside noise will bleed in, and people around you won't be able to hear your tunes, even if you've cranked up the volume a lot."
_
"But i do have couple of problems, the cord makes a lot of noise when it hits your clothes like your listening to music and you hear the cord banging on your clothes everytime."
_
"There is a lot of cord noise, as the cord bangs and jostles, which is quite annoying."
_
"I understand that some who do not listen to heavy metal might find all intentional distortion unbearable and label it as noise regardless of the headphones choice, but there are differences, to me at least."
_
"I was looking A LOT for good headphones with a mic that has noise cancellation like Apple's headphones - and couldn't find any."
_
"There is also a very important feature here that all other headphones missed in a great degree: mic noise cancellation."
_
"Deep bass that blocks out noise and--the best feature--it's easy to instantly remember which cord is for the left ear and which is for the right ear (spoiler: the right earbud has the mini remote on it's cord)."
_
"Excellent noise isolation and hardly any sound from the cords rubbing on clothing etc."
_
"it is good for noise canceling!"
_
"Initially, I was a bit concerned given the Sennheisers are no active noise cancelling headphones, but they work great."
_
"The earplugs fit very well (and come with several earpieces of different size), very effectively reducing the noise."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Second problem: The plastic earbuds come off too easily."
_
"The included case is actually excessively large if you take out the annoying plastic liner."
_
"I love these earbuds my only problem would be is that the plastic tips kept falling off and now I'm down to uncomfortable pairs ."
_
"I have had problems with the plastic piece not staying to the headphones."
_
"These headphones were wrapped up nice and neat in the case, which has a plastic insert in which the headphones can be placed, and the cable wrapped around for great storage."
_
"Second problem: The plastic earbuds come off too easily."
_
"I love these earbuds my only problem would be is that the plastic tips kept falling off and now I'm down to uncomfortable pairs ."
_
"I would love these that much more if the plastic tips were more secure."
_
"(finally my search for android headphones with remote mic is over).Case is great, but plastic thing inside to wrap around cables is just too big to use it comfortably for every day, and without that plastic thingy case is just empty box (good looking empty box)"

Price

Price:
"The M2s appear to have good build quality; the cable is slightly thicker than average at this price point, and also not perfectly circular which reduces tangling."
_
"The quality of sound is not the best you can buy, but for the price, they're worth the money."
_
"This pair would be great if the price point was ~$35 but at ~$100 it is too much to be disappointed."
_
"These earbuds are frustratingly unpractical for three major reasons:(1) the earbud ear tips continue to fall off (I have had these headphones for a little less than to two months, and have replaced the earbud tips three times)(2) the extended cord length does nothing but help you continually get caught in things, ripping the earbuds out of your ears(3) the headphone pieces (not the silicon tips) are heavy and jut out of your ear quite a bit, causing a slight, but noticeable downward pull when in your earsIn conclusion, these headphones offer good sound quality for the money but are annoyingly impractical and not as comfortable as other options out there."
_
"Adequate sound for the price but not durable at all."
_
"Maybe Sennheiser can fix them for a reasonable price."
_
"She can no longer hear me when I call to her attention though and our desks are in the same room side by side :DI had a listen into the quality and they sound pretty good for the price."
_
"Bought these and I may as well flush the money...the authentic are the same price."
_
"Comfortable, good sound, and good price."

_
"Impressive build quality, great presentation and fantastic sound quality are really hard to match."
_
"The quality of sound is not the best you can buy, but for the price, they're worth the money."
_

Range

Range:
"Cons : Good range of music representation but not as good as some of the high range products even at this prize."
_
"Nice low end bass tones (not muffled or distorted), clean and clear mid range, nice clear and crisp high end."
_

_
"There is good detail and resolution throughout the range, from top to bottom."
_
"These are actually very, very good until you reach the treble range."
_
"However, with the help of an equalizer, the Momentums can sound very clear in all ranges, and are a pair of in-ears I can highly recommend."

Remote

Remote:
"the remote is bulky and hard to find the right button without looking, the basic iphone headphone remote is much better."
_
"- Remote hard to use without looking; these are supposed to be mobile oriented."
_
"The buttons on the wired remote are easy to use."
_

Size

Size:
"noise isolation is awful because of the sound the cord makes each time you touch it...forget about walking with these on your ears, it's so painful and weird to hear even the slightest touch of the cord on your clothes....ear buds are not comfortable, tried several sizes...totally made me gave up on in-ear headphones."
_
"Had problems with the small ear pieces popping off and getting stuck in ear canal..."
_
"Great sound but the opening for the sound didn't fit well in my ear canal so it didn't seal well regardless of the size of ear piece I used."
_
"I experienced some discomfort after using the stock size for a while, and found that going one size down made them much more comfortable, but negatively, made them a little easier to fall out."
_
"Starting from the jack, it's terminated by a right-angled gold-plated 3.5mm jack - my only complaint about it really is that it has quite a small strain relief, which over time might cause problems."
_
"The earphones are just perfect but the only downside is that the difference between the sizes of medium and large for the earpieces is far too great, so none of them fits my ears well enough but other then that i recommend them, the color is great, sound is awesome, build quality is good, just wish they make Bluetooth earpieces like plantronics."
_
"Make sure you use the correct size earpiece so you can enjoy the full soundstage as much as possible...nearly blocks out all outside sound."
_
"I've never heard bass this good in such small headphones."
_
"Nice, though the medium cups are just a tad too small for my ears, and the large are too large."
_
"They do a great job of not falling out and Sennheiser even sends you many different sizes of rubber covers so you find your perfect size."

Sound

Sound:
"Excellent headphones, the mic feels a little flimsy but the sound is crystal clear with a booming bass, which is more than I could ask for at this price."
_
"At first, they may not sound as good as I have explained."
_
"For the first week or so of use I was utterly disappointed and was near returning these as the sound quality was terrible."
_
"They did not sound as good a ear buds I paid $6 for."

_
"The quality of sound is not the best you can buy, but for the price, they're worth the money."

Volume

Volume:
"The amplifier in the iPhone may be a little weak to max out volume on these guys, but that's ok."
_
"Passive noise isolation is good, very little outside noise will bleed in, and people around you won't be able to hear your tunes, even if you've cranked up the volume a lot."
_
"Highs are too loud so its very hard to hear bass in normal volume."
_
"One thing to note however is that the highs were quite ear-piercing, making the earphones a little unbearable at higher volumes, or with a song that had an emphasis on female vocals."
_
"I don't know if that's because my ears are being damaged, (although I don't think I have the volume up terribly loud), or if the ear buds are just getting broken-in, but it does seem as if the audio is getting better as these are used."
_
"Built in volume control on ear bud cable is a nice added feature, it eliminated the need to remove cell phone or other music device from pocket to adjust volume."
_
"Volume rocker is easy to use while controling volume from setting in my Andriod device."
_
"The remote on the cord works well and I found it super useful while on a long flight (not needing to remove my phone from my pocket to control skip back volume is nice)."
_
"I have an LG G3 phone for which I am able to change the song and volume from the buttons on the cable."
