These were originally meant to have been released in March but as far as Ive seen they have never been in stock and constantly pushed back for release, indicating to me there is a possible problem with them.
This is however a good price compared to the UK.

Sounds good price but rather chilly voting?

Rereleased after being withdrawn due to Bluetooth issues. Excellent price.

People see headphones over £2.50 and have wobble.

Amazing headphones good price, heat added

I head Otorhinolaryngology become the top profession when these were released

I found Beats Studio Wireless for £70 during Black Friday, they're no way £330 headphones but they don't deserve the hate they get. I'd say they're a good £150 headphone and a great £200 wireless pair, though to be fair I've never actually seen them sell for £330, always around £180.

PM me if you don't understand

I'll give you £80 for them?

Could buy 26 pairs of Sony @ Argos.

Can somebody seriously explain me why a discount of 100£ is so cold? Or does just everyone disklike these headphones

Holy.... I went and bought some Bose QC25i's last week as I didn't want to wait for the price of these to drop to something affordable....

These have design faults and were taken off the market

There is no good reason, except that many people now vote based on their personal likes dislikes, or how much they personally would pay for headphones, instead of objectively looking at the deal. The voting system isn't as good as it used to be because of all the small mindedness.

The Momentum 2.0 Wireless had a problem in early 2015 with Bluetooth audio dropping out when it was connected to Bluetooth connection that was being shared with other devices.
Sennheiser stopped production in May 2015 and recalled all units to fix the problem.
The problem is fixed for new stock, and all early purchasers got replacements, a fix or a refund. They do a 2 year warranty as standard so relax.

I have Momentum 1 over-ears and I am interested in these. May try them out in John Lewis this lunchtime.

These deals usually get cold votes based on affordability and not whether its a deal. It makes you feel like giving up on HUKD but it even if its freezing cold it still helps people who really know its not a tin of baked beans.

I got a pair of these for £240 as I know someone who works for Sennheiser. They are an amazing pair of headphones. I had Momentum 1s also but replaced them with these as I wanted a pair of wireless headphones. I have had no Bluetooth issues at all. For me they are easily worth £265

What other bluetooth cans have you used or compared them to.
I have tried Sennheiser MM550-X which had a ridiculous rrp of over £300 but I only paid £125 and sold them on as I thought they were no better than any other out there. I ended up keeping Philips Fidelio's M2BT ,again they sound similar in comparison to the MM550-x and Bose but also looked good rather than a hideous set of cans.

I have tried the Bose soundlink, Sony mdr-1at and beats solo. I find with the momentums that they suit all styles of music. Personally I didn't notice much sound difference between the first versions and second version of Momentums, however other people have. There is a subtle difference in sound quality when using in wireless mode compared to wired but that is expected. The second version are much more comfortable the the first due to the larger ear cups. Battery life is superb too

So would you say they are better than the Bose & Sony especially as the Sony are now £99 and the Bose also been around £100.Cheers.

Where have you seen them for those prices? The Bose are around the £240 mark and Sony £280.

They arrived and they are awesome! They probably came from Amazon UK. They have a label if undeliverable return to Amazon UK... also the Packaging is English/German only no French box^^...

But I do have a Question. I use PC/iPhone/iPad and MAC. Only the PC is atpx compatible, but how do I turn that on?

Arrived yesterday. Just testing them now. Quite impressive. I like the voice that tells you the commands you're activating. Signal is really strong, just took them upstairs whilst leaving the phone downstairs and no loss of signal.Nice simple controls.Very comfy.
Mine do however have a blemish .The cream has a smudge of brown in them so I will try get a further discount. Very happy at the price we paid but would want to pay more.Thanks .

so far I am also impressed by the sound of the headphones. However I also encountered a few issues. Yesterday I watched a movie on my PC and was kinda 3 m away from the bluetooth dongle. Every 20 minutes the sound was cut of and than continued.
In contrast while listening music on my iPhone there were no drops, but sound is better through my PC even when playing Aiff on iPhone, FLACs on PC sound still much better. Not sure what the reason is but I'll test more.

In terms of distance: when I leave the room and go to the bathroom (less than 10m) the signal is lost.

Also the headphones get confused. After loosing connection I have to turn them off/on before they properly reconnect. Same when I switch between phone an PC.

Let me know what you encounter the next days.

Sounds like you may have a dodgy pair. The only problem Ive just encountered is the cable. Its not a smooth plug in operation. I couldn't hear anything via cable at first then after fiddling it came through. I then realised it has a kinda locking mechanism that the cable has to be pushed then twisted to lock inside.
My signal is fantastic, I lose signal on my Philips Fidelio by going upstairs but these Momentums continue around the house.Just been offered a €30 refund for the blemish. I will probably take it.

I have an underground garage with reinforced concrete ceiling. Ive just taken them down there with all the doors closed and still no loss of signal. Absolutely amazing. Definitely keeping them , the more I listen the more I like them.

What device do you use for streaming your music/audio?
Happy to hear that you have such a great experience!
I will try other devices as well. The issue may come from the cheap bluetooth dongle of my PC.
Thanks to Amazon there is 30 day return... but I wont get them again soon for this price....

If you are using a dongle then that can have a big affect. Ive used dongles on the tv before and had the same problem, I thought it was the headphones at first but after using 3 different wireless sets its definately the dongle.
I have currently tested it on my Sony Z3 and my Sony Vaio which has built in bluetooth, I haven't as yet used it on the tv with the said dongle.
If you think its faulty they will replace or refund its upto you.

Hey figured out the issue with the dropouts. Its not the headphones or the dongle it was VLC Media Player. I had to change the output module to WaveOut audio output and then it worked seamlessly.
