Sleek and lightweight, the Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEG headphones for Android are the latest addition to Sennheiser’s highly revered Momentum range designed to smoothly integrate with mobile phones and portable music players.
The headphones are built for comfortable incorporating a flat cable design with an Android-friendly remote and microphone. Packaged with a convenient carry case, the Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEG Android deliver exceptional sound filled with plenty of bass at an attractive price.
Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEG Ultra Precise
Uncompromising sound and rich detail is a testament to the authentic dimensions of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM In-Ear headphones from the ultra-precise, stainless steel sound tunnel to the three-button multifunction remote with built-in microphone.
Build and design
The Momentum range has a reputation for style and comfort and these in-ears continue the trend. They mix a modern look with a classy finish; the earpieces look striking in their deep-red colourway, complemented nicely by a two-tone headphone cable and in-line remote.
Small details like the Sennheiser logos and cable loops on each earpiece make the Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEG stand out from the crowd at this level.
Even the in-line mic and remote has been designed to blend in with the rest of the package – the chunky, yet discreet, buttons don’t leave you fumbling around and the mic has you reading loud and clear.
There are two versions of the Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEGs: the M2 IE is are for iPhones, while the M2 IEGs are designed to work with Android devices. The M2 IEis feature an in-line mic and remote for Apple smartphones, while a variant called the M2 IEG carries the relevant control/mic combination for Android mobiles (and shares the same sound quality). Fit is excellent and comfort levels are high – you get a choice of four different-sized eartips to help promote a good seal, which is easy to arrive at.
Premium grade materials are combined with superior craftsmanship to deliver uncompromising sound in a small package. The acoustic components do not contain plastic and instead are made of high-quality stainless steel manufactured using precision milling technology. The difference can be heard in the powerful yet nuanced sound.
Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEG Performance
Play a few tracks on either the Apple or Android variants, and these in-ears show all the signs of quality buds. They promote a smooth and balanced sound similar to that displayed by both their big brothers. There’s plenty of drive and a great sense of musicality. Lows are rich and weighty.
Play Jay-Z’s Already Home and the pounding bass notes at the beginning of the track are full-bodied but they still arrive with purpose and intent. Leading edges are well defined and the pace is aided by the Sennheiser’s nimbleness and ability to keep a fast-tempo.
Highs are crisp and precise: the strings looping in the background poke and pulse out of the top of the soundstage with impressive dynamism.
There’s a fine sense of clarity to the sound too. Play Hozier’s Take Me to Church, there’s an impressive sense of spaciousness around instruments and vocals. Finer elements such as the echo and reverb around his vocal are easy to pick out and the tune has a real sermon-like feel to it.
Functional and Robust
The broad range of In-Ear accessories includes an easy-to-use remote for Android, sturdy hard-shell case, elliptical cable for reducing tangling and sound loss, gold-plated jack and a built-in hands-free mic.
