The main characteristics of this headphone is lush detailed sound, great dynamics and tight, full bodied bass. These are not bass heavy, but these are not bass shy either. Its a bit hard to explain but I will try. My stereo setup consists of a pair of KEF LS50 speakers. I was extremely happy with it, till one day I added a HSU Subwoofer from the home theater system to the mix. The KEF's sounded the same but suddenly I was aware of what I was missing. Think of these headphones as a similar set up where a superb stereo speaker has an amazing subwoofer added to it. The bass never over powers the mids and highs like other bass heavy headphones do. It just adds the extension that you wont notice until you hear it.
There is no noise cancelling feature here, I am fine with that. The passive noise cancelling did not bother me at all during a 4 hour flight.
What this headphone does is deliver musicality and details in spades. Compared to my Shure SE846 (4X the price) these lack maybe a very thin veil of transparency and detail. But you will be hard pressed to find the differences in an A/B test. All that over bluetooth !!!
Not sure why a previous customer complained about bluetooth range, these have a better range than Urbanite XL's that I also own. I was able to keep a steady connection to my Laptop inside the house while planting perennials outside today. That's at least a 50 feet range. When the connection does go out of range, the sq doesn't deteriorate, it simply drops out. I like it, this means I am not constantly trying to be as close to the source as possible to eke out the best possible sound from these.
Charging is via a micro usb cable. I would have preferred USB-C but that's just me. One nice touch, if you are listening to music via PC and run out of juice, you can plug these in to the PC and it becomes a USB powered headphone while it charges. Sure the USB cable is inconvenient, but it keeps you listening to the music without interruption. There is no difference sonically between a wireless or a wired connection. This isnt a new feature, other bluetooth headphones by sennheiser have this feature as well, but I find it a nice feature to have.
There are a couple of things I do not like about these headphones:
1) The cables come out from the bottom of the neck piece. This adds a bit of length to the headphone cables and it simply makes no sense ergonomically
2) The headphone cables are flat, but I would have much preferred them to be braided as well. Nylon braiding will add some tensile strength to the cables and will give them a longer life, also I find the rubber very slightly sticky on my neck. Nylon or hybrid braiding usually feels a little better.
Then again, if you keep a beard, nylon braiding will be scratchy.
3) Out of the box, you get 4 sizes of silicone tips (Xsmall, small, medium, large). My $ 9 Apie earbuds came with 6 sizes. I needed something between small and medium for the right fit. The comply foam tips for momentum fit on these just fine, so thats what I am using. Come on sennheiser, at this price, I expect a few more tips and a few foam ones as well.
4) These headphones are bright out of the box and need at least 20 hours of break in to approach their actual sound quality. I wont ding these for that. But seemed like a longer than usual time to break them in.
5) No aptX™ HD.
There are a few things I do like about these headphones
1) Incredible sound quality. I have quite a few bluetooth headphones including Sennheiser made ones as well as the Sony MDR-1000X and the B&W P7 Wireless. These headphones sound better to me than any of those.
2) Improved bluetooth range. If you arent getting a good range or poor sound, check your bluetooth set up, these headphones have a better range than the ones mentioned above.
3) Classy, understated design with a premium finish that oozes luxury.
4) The switch to lower the volume is towards the outside. Easy to reach if you need to reduce the volume in a hurry.
5) 15+ hours battery life.
6) Unobtrusive neckband that easily hides inside the shirt collar.
7) Built in USB DAC.
8) Qualcomm® apt-X™ bluetooth setup. No discernible lag while watching a movie.
9) Sensitive microphone. Everyone hears me clearly and I dont have to shout during my conversation. These will also catch a lot of the external noises, but not any more than your phones built in mic.
10)Included case is quite nice and can hold an extra pair of IEM's.
All in all, until Sennheiser releases a truly over ear headphone that can cover my entire ear and supports aptX™ HD, these will remain my go to headphones for listening on the go and at work. (My serious listening headphone is lately a Sennheiser HD 700), sure this headphone isnt for everyone. It doesnt have noise cancelling, isnt flashy and doesnt have a rapper or a dj attached to its development, (though I hear Sennheiser is trying that as well). If music is what you seek and are willing to take on the relative comprise of going bluetooth over wired, these headphones are heartily recommended for you.
If listening to music and sheer audio quality was the only thing that mattered, I would probably give these 5-stars since I think they do about as well as can be expected from any Bluetooth earbuds—the limiting factor being the quality of the Bluetooth audio signal rather than the earbuds themselves.
As a headset for general use, though, I have three primary gripes.
1. The Ear Buds REALLY Should Have Been Designed To Retract.
This is something that I obviously knew about prior to purchase, but it's not until I started to wear these everyday and use them on a regular basis that I began to really understand how annoying this oversight in design could be. I generally have these around my neck almost all day, but it's not as if I'm making phone calls or listening to music the entire day so when I'm not, the ear buds just dangle precariously and I'm aware that I have this pretty delicate, but fairly pricey thing just waiting to get caught on something and ripped off.
The alternative would really be to remove the band from my person and store it securely in the very nice protective case that Sennheiser provides, but I feel like that sort of goes against the idea of a headset since doing so would effectively cut me off from the hands-free call receiving benefits. So it seems to be either use it the way I would use my normal headphones for listening to music (although my normal headphones are far more robust) or have my earbuds get caught on everything from my seatbelt to the straps of my backpack.
So this is one of those things that I simply underestimated the annoyance of going into it, but Sennheiser should really do better next time.
2. The Mic Needs Some Sort of Noise Cancellation
Part of the reason one would purchase a headset like this is for the combined ability to listen to audio and make phone calls. With the average wired headset, you often notice people moving the mic portion closer to their mouth during their phone calls. The reason for this is pretty obvious—it essentially reduces the signal-to-noise ratio by making your voice louder than the ambient noise. The location of the mic on the neckband, however, means that without some sort of technology to reduce the ambient noise—something that doesn't seem to be present—the person on the other end of your phone call is going to hear a whole lot of what's going on around you.
So while you will hear the other person well thanks to the great audio quality, this quirk of the microphone means that the other person may not hear you so well without you having to raise your voice louder than normal.
3. Bluetooth Can Be Finnicky
This isn't so much a specific knock against this headset (although, I feel like it's performance in this regard is not as good as some other headsets I've tried), but Bluetooth can be a finnicky thing with connection being unexpectedly lost between the device and your phone. I was actually on a walk where the headset simply disconnected and refused to reconnect with the phone despite all of my attempts. I'm not sure what prevented the pairing (maybe it overheated?), but a few hours later, it suddenly started working again without a hiccup. This hasn't been a consistent problem for me so it's been difficult to really pin down the cause, but I would just put it out there that you might purchase these and suddenly find yourself in situations where they may not be pairing with your device for periods of time.
I suppose that's a risk with all wireless technology to a degree, but as I noted above, I have other Bluetooth headphones and headsets that I've used that haven't suffered from the quirks that I've experienced with this particular headset... That having been said, I guess take this last one with a grain of salt.
So now that we're done with the gripes, I'll bring up some positives. I find the controls on the neckband to be logically laid out and easy to use. The battery life has been very good for me and I've never had a situation where I was even close to running out of battery. The audio quality is, of course, excellent. And the headset looks pretty good in my opinion.
I've replaced the stock ear bud tips with Comply Foam tips simply because I find them to be more comfortable, but that's personal preference rather than a knock on the stock ear bud tips.
I hope this has provided a little bit of insight to help you make an informed decision. Frankly, there doesn't seem to be any standout in this category that performs excellently in all aspects so at the moment, it's going to come down to where you are willing to take your compromises. For me, even despite that grievances that I've mentioned, audio quality is still paramount to me, so I will continue to use them and if I could go back and do it again, I would have still purchased them.
That said, I cannot recommend these to anyone who is hoping to use these for running or lifting at the gym or frankly any kind of physical activity beyond walking.
Pros: Sound quality is very good, not great, but probably the best bluetooth headphones I've heard. . Bass is perhaps a bit too prominent and the midrange and highs aren't quite as clear and articulate as I would like, but this is to be expected at this affordable price. Battery life is very good, I do not doubt the 10-hour specification on the box.
Cons: You cannot run with these headphones on as the device around your neck will rotate and pull one of the monitors out of your ear. Headphone wires are too short to wrap-around-the-ear so you get all the annoying noise from the cable as you run - it's so loud you can't even hear the music. Finally, the HD1 really struggles in multiple-device environments. Even though my iPhone was out of range the HD1 would constantly remind me that it was either connected or disconnected from my iPhone while I was streaming music from my Apple Watch.
If you only pair these headphones to a single device and don't intend to work out with them on, I think they're a good deal. Otherwise, pass. I am returning mine.

I’m so happy to receive this premium product in a pocket range price. This is high quality sound producer and bass lovers will love it to. The whole physics of sound is embedded in this product.
1. Premium quality head phones, to add the leather neck band just adds more value to it. It looks nice.
2. Fitting is just perfect for my ears, offcourse you get adjustable ear plugs too.
3. The sound is near perfect especially if you are instrumental music lover. The deep sound and voice quality adds more cushion to your ears.
4. Battery life is decent, works as promised and if you regularly switch off the headset when not in use it adds more value.
5. The most important part is it’s durability, I have dropped these so many but it holds its quality.
I would highly recommended the product.
I got it for a good deal during the Great Indian Sale. But still I feel price wise, this is quite high.
I wanted to return this earphone but Amazon wont take it back. Although there is nothing written in the return policy, customer care keeps playing with words like return with replacement vs return with refund. They just stupidly deny to accept the difference between return and replacement. So now I am stuck with this very expensive and mundane sounding earphone.
Well done Amazon!!
About this product momentum m2 iebt
Motorbike riding: fits safely under helmet without pushing the buds inside your ears which happens with true wireless earbuds (I do not advise listening to music or attending calls while riding but I do use it for small calls where mostly I say "I am riding bike and call you back shortly" only when call cannot be avoided)
Device pairing: I connected it to 3 devices, my phone, laptop and TV.. Sound is smazing. It can stay connected to 2 devices simultaneously.
Say my phone receives a call the other device is playing video which pauses for the call and resumes after the call.
Only down side in comparison to cx bt 7.00 is that cx bt used to auto connect when switched on with already paired devices, this one some how doesn't which is annoying for me. The device is listed in my paired devices on my phone but if it is switched off and on then m2 iebt doesn't auto connect.
Sound quality: simply said you will enjoy these earphones if you are music head.
Battery life: I get about 9 to 10 hrs of continuous play time with mid to high volume level.
Comparison with Sony xm2 neck band: why I didn't buy xm2 instead
Price: m2 iebt (14984) is slightly more than than half of what Sony xm2 neck band costs (21199)
Warranty: sony one year, sennheiser 2 years..
Bluetooth: Sony has Bluetooth 5.0 which better than 4.1 available in this one but it hardly matters to me because I use it for purposes where My source device is always with me.
Sony has usb c port for charging but this one has micro usb. I would have preferred type c as my phone is type charged device. Now I do have to carry a micro USB always along with type cable.
Sony has additional aux cable which enables user to be able to use its neckband earphones even without the power which this does not.. I think that is main feature that every neck band should have.. It adds icing on the cake.
Sound quality wise: I like Sony are better due its its adaptive noise cancelling where its detects surrounding and adjusts the level of noise cancelling but that again is not something I was looking for. Apart from noise cancelling the sennheiser ones have better bass, low and middles are great, overall a great music listening and voice calling earphones.
Major deciding factor was price and warranty.. For sony about 21200 I wished they provide at least 2 years warranty. At 20k RHA provide 3 years warranty. At 14 K sennheiser provides 2 years warranty which for me shows how much the company believes in its products durability. Also I have used sennheiser neck bands in the past for about 3 years I can vouch for its customer service, durability, sound quality (best for its price range) and thus contributing to overall price worthyness.
I would have ealsi pick sony xm2 neck band had it provided 2 years warranty. I mean like I don't want to spend that kind of money if it can't last 2 years (I don't know if it would last or not but if it didn't then I wouldn't want to spend another 15 - 20 k for another high quality earphones)
Great battery backup.
Audio clarity is one epic level.
when on bike the connection would disconnect quite a lot.
Range of Bluetooth is comparable to 2k RS headphones,not better
After and before call there is a glitch sound which is very irritating.
-outstanding sound quality and volume (could hear quite clearly while flying on a turboprop aircraft)
-amazing battery life
-fast bluetooth pairing
-not terribly useful as a device to make calls; mic placement on the neck band constantly rubs against clothes or neck, creates a lot of undesired noise
-frequent bluetooth un-pairing; could play for hours, or could disconnect 5 times in a row...incredibly annoying!
Unfortunately, not being able to use these for mobile phone calling is a non-starter, regardless of how good they sound. They'll be going back.
