Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear -  Design and looks

First of all I would like to thank Sennheiser for sending me the Momentum Earphones for review. After having reviewed the IE8, IE800, and quite a few of the CX range, I was interested where this mid-range earphone would fit in the Sennheiser product list.
The earphones can be found on AmazonUK for £78 and on AmazonUSA for $97.

More information about the earphones can be found on Sennheiser’s website.

Here’s my video review of the earphones:

First of all I would like to thank Sennheiser for sending me out the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 – unfortunately due to not having contacts with Sennheiser in the past, I’m unable to compare it to the first gen model, however as I own the AKG K545, it provides me a good platform to compare these two headphones, which both sit at a similar price range at launch (the K545 has drastically dropped in price, from £230 to £150 since I reviewed it back in June 2013).
The sennehsier Momentum 2.0 can be found on:
AmazonUK for £250
AmazonUSA for $350
