The Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear looks polish and well-designed. It is not often that the fashion term was heavily embodied in Sennheiser products. The entire plastic structures are really eye-catching. The flashy, yet lightweight, slim earbuds are very comfortable. For fitting, the included silicon eartips are varied in sizes. The inline remote with 3 buttons, which is compatible with Android or iOS, depending on the version.
In terms of sound quality, the Momentum in ear sounds slightly warm with a plenty of bass. The bass of Momentum in ear is deep and hits a strong impact, while keeping minimum bloat. Mid-range is reasonably recessed, but the clarity is good. The treble is not at outstanding performance, measured with lack of definition, but it is energetic. This together with powerful bass make the headphones remarkably have V-shaped sound signature, while most Sennheiser in ear headphones have more balanced sound.

Sennheirser CX300 Earbuds
A more affordable option is the CX300, an entry-level in ear headphones. It is a lightweight and comfortable set.
By design, you get shallow insertion to your ears–short nozzle and rounded housings, so the sound isolation is just reasonable. Though cable is thin, it does present microphonic noises at noticeable level.
Most people are believed this is a really good pair when it comes to sound quality, but honestly they fool your ears with overwhelming bass. Actually, critical listeners pointed out their weakness at the low-end, which loosen in details. The mid-range is dry and has an average clarity. Though there a bright side of this pair, which offer you with spacious sound. For music genres like pop, rocks the CX300 play well.
