    So uncomfortable & nearly impossible to position

    These headphones are awful. My husband had the over-ear headphones & I expected these to be a similar caliber. They're incredibly uncomfortable. My ears hurt after wearing, and I have to switch to my old Bose just to get some relief. I bought for the sound thinking the sound would be top notch. They're not. It's nearly impossible to get these position to get good sound. Most of the time they have that treble/tin sound I hate. Bass is nearly impossible to get right. I had Bose wireless previously but they were getting worn out so I was looking for an upgrade. This was a huge disappointment.

    True great - but fit is key!

    Was disspomted when I first bought these. Comparing to Shure 846 wired and B & O e8 I was disappointed with getting the correct fit, which ensures bass response as well as sound isolation. The combination of bud sizes and shape of the earpiece wasn't allowing the correct connection to my ear canal. On a whim I walked into an inmotion store at the airport and asked if hey had any ear tips that fit these. Was happy that a young knowledgeable sales associate said "try the comply tips".... Oh My Word Radically different experience. Turned down the volume, neutralized the eq and I enjoyed the massive sound stage and separation. Balanced with a full low end and great clarity in the mids Highly recommend. My opinion? If there are sound issues it's not the earpiece performance - it's the earpiece fit - same with IEMs Sennheiser considering offering these foam comply tips as an earpiece option.... OBTW - the medium comply round tips fit in the charger....

    Better than most

    I purchased both the Momentum and the MW07 because I was not certain which one was better. First and foremost, if you are looking for sound quality you regularly find in wired, regular headphones, you will be utterly disappointed. No earplugs will come close. I own the latest noise-cancelling Bose and the Momentum does not come close to these. I am still debating whether to keep them or not because they do offer some nice features. First, I am only interested in sound and portability. These offer good sound separation and are light on the ear. Bass is lacking, however, and they are not loud at all. I find myself turning the volume all the way up and have caught myself going back to turn it even higher just to realize the volume is at maximum level. I have not had the opportunity to compare them to the MW07 yet, but I know already that the MW07 are louder. I will update my review once I do that. A side of me wants to wait until the good people of Sennheizer come up with a firmware update or a second version perhaps next year.

    The best in ear TW headphones I’ve tried.

    My first thought was there's no way I'm paying that much for these! But after reading other reviews I thought ok well maybe they're worth it. I'm glad I didn't go with my first thought! These are expensive but in my opinion they're worth it. The sound quality and clarity is outstanding for any size headphones I've ever tried. They are better sounding than my beats solo 3, my beats studio, and my AirPods. My only suggestion would be make sure you have a good fit in your ears. When I first tried them on even the large silicone tips didn't really fit. The bass sound was really weak and the treble was way to much for my liking due to the fit. If the fit isn't right you will be disappointed with the sound! I was ready to return them and try something different. Fortunately I had some larger silicone tips I decided to try from some other in ear buds and they created a perfect fit and totally changed the sound. Even with this small issue I still think they deserved 5 stars! I hope eventually Sennheiser will give you even more sizes for the silicone tips.

    Painful, Mediocre, and Random Popping..?

    Equipment: iPhone XS Max 512gb (iOS 12.1.2) Apps: Tidal, YouTube, Sennheiser Smart Control These earbuds are receiving consistently positive reviews, and I honestly cannot see why. I purchased these with very high hopes of replacing my AirPods with earbuds that offer better sound quality. These did not fulfill that want. These earbuds are MASSIVE. They're extremely thick and do not feel right in the ear. After trying all four sets of rubber tips, I ended up barely favoring the XS set, even though my ears are average sized. When these earbuds are inserted, they press up against the inner perimeter of your ear, which at first makes them feel secure, but then make them ache after five minutes of use. And if you even slightly touch them or move your head to look up or down, they become loose and start slowly sliding out. The battery life is pretty decent while wearing them, as I was typically able to achieve about 3.25 hrs per charge at about 40-50% volume. However, my left earbud would always have about 7% less battery than the right for some reason, even when both started at 100%. I am very confused as to why the massive case only offers an additional 8 hours of battery life. Although the case is not huge compared to other true wireless earbuds, it's bulk makes me wonder why the case is so thick with a tiny battery. I did not experience any connection issues while pairing or while using the earbuds. In terms of audio delay when watching videos, it's barely noticeable. If you are picky you can spot it, but almost everyone will never see it. I have no idea where these reviews of terrific sound quality are originating from. I tried them and felt they were far worse than my AirPods. No matter what settings I had the app's equalizer set to, they always sounded muddy. The bass response is minimal at best, which is a huge disappointment. The treble sounds to be the most prominent, but not by much. Miss and bass just sound washed out, and the sound I experienced felt flatlined with a blanket over it. They block out noise PASSIVELY (not actively like others are stating) fairly well, until they start sliding out. The case they come in feels cheap because it's. The exterior woven fabric certainly adds a nice look and feel, but the use of plastic for the case makes the hinge wobbly and the experience feel under par. The earbuds themselves are made of plastic as well, and they also feel cheap. The uncomfortable feeling I experienced possibly could have been offset by at least offering a rubber exterior or something slightly more premium. The straw that broke the camel's back for these was the random popping I was experiencing watching YouTube videos. In three videos I watched with dialogue, I was hearing random electrostatic-sounding noises from the right earbud. I thought these noises were coming from the videos themselves, so I decided to listen to the same sections with my AirPods and did not hear them. These pops were extraordinarily loud, despite my volume. The utilization of Qualcomm drivers may have something to do with this. It's just weird how very specific moments in videos produced this. They were not random, and I did go back after a few hours passed to retest this, and I was able to replicate the pops every time. Overall, I have little to positively say about these earbuds. They're painfully uncomfortable, offer lousy sound, and have technical issues that should not plague a $300 set of earbuds. Although AirPods are far from being the best-sounding earbuds in the world, their $159.00 price tag puts these to shame. Nearly double the price downgrades my. sound quality, battery life, and technical reliability. But hey, Sennheiser's case looks pretty.

    Save your $300

    TL;DR: Too expensive for what they offer. Save your money. Details: Nothing stands out that other cheaper truly wireless earbuds don't offer for much less. 1) Build - The earphones themselves have decent build quality but the capacitive touch surfaces don't work well. And the cloth covered charging case plastic hinges squeak when opening and closing. The case doesn't feel rugged at all, for a $300 product. I took one star off for the quality of the case and capacitive surface of the earphones. 2) Sound quality - Bose SoundSport Free and Jabra Elite have comparable sound stage (Bose actually has a wider sound stage). I actually found Sennheiser bass heavy out of the box. I took one star off for a $300 product as it didn't wow me with its most important characteristic. 3) Functionality - Touch controls work, but it took me a long time getting used to finding the right spot; such issue never arose when working with Apple AirPods. Sennheiser touch controls feel erratic for a $300 product. I took one star off for this. 4) Fit - Admittedly, I have large ears and most earphones, including AirPods don't fit. Only Bose and Jabra Elite Sport, with its hard foam supplies tips fit my ears very well. However, it's inexcusable for Sennheiser to not include Comply grade foam tips in all sizes in the box. The included ones are the usual flimsy four sizes of silicon tips. Of course, none of the supplied tips fit me. Jabra's foam tips came to the rescue. I'm aware that Comply tips for $20 will solve my problem. But again, this is a $300 product. I took one more star off here. 5) Connectivity: No issues. Long range. Half a star awarded for nailing the basics in 2019. 6) Microphone: Decent quality when spoken through on a phone call. Most wireless earphones struggle with this because the microphone is too far away from the mouth. The beam forming microphones work fairly well for Sennheiser. I'm awarding half a star for this as well. Overall, my suggestion is to save $300 for another year or two before the next wave of "truer" wireless earphones is born.
