So I'm writing this review based on my experience with them on two devices: the Verizon/Samsung Galaxy Note 4 running Android 5.0.1; and the Avantree Saturn Pro bluetooth adapter connected by 3.5mm to my Windows 8.1 desktop.
As of 5/13/15, there is currently a bug on Android where any bluetooth device will occasionally "click" and "pop" during playback if the screen is off. This is NOT the fault of these headphones, so don't return them if you experience this. Instead, look for workarounds or updates to your device. You will find that these headphones do not exhibit that behavior on iPhones, Windows desktops, or almost anything else besides an Android device running 4.4.x or 5.0.x. This is an Android problem, plain and simple. I will not be faulting these headphones in my review for an Android problem.
I will echo most other reviewers in saying that, physically, these are some awesome-feeling headphones. Very comfortable to wear, very sturdy, very portable. The battery life is fantastic. The tactile feedback on the controls is great.
Pairing them is simple and reliable, with all the devices I tested them with.
Now, for sound quality, the most controversial aspect. Personally, I think these headphones sound amazing, and I can't tell the difference between music played through these headphones and the music played back through my wired Sennheiser HD-25 II cans, which are high-end studio monitoring headphones.
The most important thing you need to know is that, if your Bluetooth device does not support *both* Bluetooth 4.0 *and* the apt-X codec, you are not going to receive the best experience. Unless you can positively determine that your Bluetooth device supports both of these, do not expect the top-end sound quality to be available. If your device connects via Bluetooth 2.1 or 3.0, or does not use the apt-X codec, do not expect good audio quality; it just won't happen. You will be disappointed. You will want to blame the headphones for it. It's not their fault.
Now that you've gone out and bought a phone or mp3 player that supports apt-X and Bluetooth 4.0, you may now rejoice in the fantastic sound quality that these 'phones provide. The bass isn't overdriven; the treble is well-defined and nuanced; the dynamic range is excellent. I've listened to genres from pop to classical to electronica to guitar-and-vocal solos, and everything sounds absolutely great to my ears.
As far as value, I am sure I will get my money's worth by using these headphones over the course of several years, but at the same time, the price is VERY steep compared to some other headphones that deliver close to, but not quite the same level of quality as these. If you want to save a few hundred bucks, you can easily pick up a very good pair of Bluetooth headphones from a company like Meelectronics. That said, since these cans are a high-end product, you are simply not getting as good of a "value proposition" out of them: the extra features, physical stability and sound quality you get from them is not "worth" the $250 or so extra you're paying for them over and above an already very good pair of headphones. Only get them if you really feel you need that top-end sound and excellent noise cancellation quality.
In conclusion, here are the "sub-ratings" that my 5-star overall is based on:
1. Physical ruggedness: 5/5
2. Physical "feel" and appearance: 5/5
3. Portability: 5/5
4. Ease of use of the controls: 5/5
5. Noise cancellation quality: 5/5
6. Battery life: 4.5/5 (there are headphones out there that last longer, but these last more than long enough to go a whole day on a full charge.)
7. Sound quality: 4.5/5 with a device supporting Bluetooth 4.0 and apt-X (and NOT Android 4.4/5.0 devices unless you keep the screen on to prevent the "clicks and pops" bug in Android itself)
8. Comfort on ears: 5/5
9. Compatibility: 3/5 (you will NOT enjoy the quality of the sound if your playback device does not support apt-X and Bluetooth 4.0, and the wired jack doesn't directly support 3.5mm TRRS plugs like I expected it to)
10. Sound volume range: 5/5 (you can adjust the volume to be very quiet and still listenable and high quality, or blast your eardrums out if you so please)
P.S. I've had the headphones and have been using them daily for five weeks at the time of posting this review.
But. Whenever I use my fitness bluetooth earphones, I always enjoy not having the cord. As a result, and despite the pretty high price, I decided to give the Sennheiser Momentum wireless on-ear headphones a try. Long story short, they are average, plain and simple. Here's the rundown:
They are beautiful. Period. The quality of construction is superb and while they are heavier, they are not THAT much heavier than the wired versions. Perhaps just a bit top heavy because of some of the reinforcement under the headband (antenna? battery? who knows.) Considering the bluetooth, battery and noice cancellation hardware, that's pretty great. The felt earcups are very comfortable and I didn't have any problems with heat or pressure while listening to them for up to an hour. Further, I love that they have hinged the headset. Now, the headphones fit even more sleekly into bags and jackets. Don't know why they didn't do that on the wired version. If there is one complaint, I'd actually have preferred a slightly tigher headband so the headphones feel more stable if I should quickly swing my head. Nevertheless, the metallic construction and plastic finishes all feel top notch and are what I've come to expect from Sennheiser.
I'll keep this section short since it's subjective but the controls are decent...maybe above average but not class leading. Power is pretty straight forward: one press and long hold until powered on. And on that note, let me add that I do NOT like the English-accented female voice they chose. Way too fake aristocratic for me. Can't we just have a nice and clean midwestern accent? (And I'm from the northeast.) The control button is multi-capable: one click for play-pause or answering/hanging u calls, two clicks to skip track, three clicks to go to previous track, tilt up for higher volume and tilt down for lower volume. It functions pretty well but the controller feels a bit flimsy. It's easy to raise or lower volume but multi-clicking is not a consistent experience. I wish it had a more tactile feel. Anyway, like I said, it's splitting hairs and pretty much gets the job done though it just doesn't live up to the awesome form factor. It detracts a star. Also, I did experience some crackling and connection yips via Bluetooth as others have mentioned around the web. It wasn't all the time (and it could usually be resolved by unpairing and repairing) but it was annoying.
And here's the only thing that really matters at the end of the day. How do they sound? AVERAGE. It really pains me to write this because I LOVE Sennheiser headphones. For my part, they usually have the perfect balance of mid and treble with a delicate punch out of the lows. Unfortunately, the Momentum wireless on-ear just couldn't remote achieve this high bar. It's probably the bluetooth, but even with the option wired cable, it still was way off. So how so? Bass. The bass was just way too overloaded. I can't even imagine how the Urban wireless will sound if they are supposed to be for bassheads. It was just too disappointing. The bass just overwhelms the entire listening experience. Mid range horns and vocals just get lost under it and the treble has to work overtime to offer any resonance whatsoever. In time, my ears sort of got accustomed to it but what results is just muted mids and highs that are not crisp, soothing, jubilant or sparkling. As a result of the bass, they are just muted and hoarse. Perhaps if you love rap or techno, they will fit the bill, but they came up sorely lacking for jazz and rock. Seriously, I had to strain to hear solid vocals and delicate cimbals. Instead, the thump of the drums and the over-vibratto of bass guitars far and away took center stage. If that's your flavor, have at these.
A word on noice cancellation.
It was actually perfect. Not so overwhelming that I felt dizzy or disoriented inside the cans but strong enough to seriously muffle the goings-on around me strolling around NYC. I've read that some wish that Sennheiser had boosted the NC further but count me in the very happy camp. I don't like when the NC leaves the music feeling stark and naked in a wave of blackness. In those cases, the quiet gets SO quiet that you can almost hear it...if you know what I mean. Here, I think that the Momentum wireless version of NC is ideal and the most balanced implementation that I've ever heard. Good stuff that.
So, what to do? Alas, they are going back. I'll try the over-ear version (despite the larger footprint) and see if they can better represent the source audio. If not, there's always the new Beoplay bluetooths to test out as well. Failing both of those, I guess it's back to carrying a wire around and just dealing with it. I'm not yet ready to give up that much sound quality for wireless comfort.
All music played via Android OS on HTC One M8 smartphone and Google Nexus 9 table.
