Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear


Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear—very V-shaped, with deep (but not overbearing), well-etched bass, scooped out mids which highlight vocals, and prominent, smoothish treble which shows  good detail but can get a little splashy. Big, wide soundstage with accurate instrumental placement, though percussion and male voices can sound slightly juiced-up/unnatural and integration between highs and lows isn’t quite seamless—these are not reference-tuned. All that said, these are better than the sum of their parts—they’re very non-fatiguing and easy to listen to for long periods despite their imperfections/inaccuracy.  Easy to drive (they actually sound better unamped), well built, with good isolation. Compared to their Asian competitors like Pioneer and Magaosi these are good value at around $50; less so at their $99 SRP.
