What customers say about "Key Specs"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds - Black
  • Battery life is decent - however you do need to remember to charge them daily for heavy use.
  • The battery life is good, the pairing is simple, all the different buds are helpful and sound quality is typical B&O standards (so excellent.)
  • I have 2 weeks use and the battery life is very good. Charging is a wonderful and exquisite procedure.
  • Battery life is pretty average. Suitable for a workout and a commute but struggles to get more than 4 hrs playtime so less than an average European flight if you include waiting time before and after the flight.
  • If you use the ear fins then its annoying that you have to remove them every time you charge them, which is a lot due to the poor battery life.
Sennheiser Momentum Free Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black
  • The battery life is enough for on and off listening throughout the day.
  • Battery life can vary from volume you listen at but they last me over a full day of listening at work easily.
  • Better than expected battery life, nice functionality in the remote and really good sound.
  • The voice calling is passable but only just. Battery life only average.
  • Poor battery life and earphones don’t sit snug in the ears, keep falling out!

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds - Black
  • I recognize that the battery life of 5 hours is low, although the equipment is small.
  • Premium earbuds with an impressive sound for their weight. Speaking of weight - they are remarkably light!
  • The headphones are light even though they look sturdy. Great design and sound!
  • The headphones themselves are quite heavy and tend to fall from the ears, and the battery life is about three hours.
  • The problem is they're just too heavy. Particularly that cool braided cord. It creates too much pull on the earpods.
Sennheiser Momentum Free Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black
  • Well battery life could be longer, but that's where you get lightweight earbuds!
  • You will not get a better sound quality anywhere and for music lovers, this small gadget will be an absolute delight.
  • The in ear Momentum earbuds are fantastic quality and light.
  • This little, light device has surprised by its great sound across music and spoken word sources.
  • Light, wholly unobtrusive with a fantastic audio range and clarity of sound that has me hearing subtleties in the (extremely eclectic) variety of music I like to listen to.

What customers say about "Features"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds - Black
  • The variety of earbuds from silicone and memory foam are great as is the magnetic off switch which acts as a holder or the little clip.
  • The best earphones I have ever had. Great sound, easy to use, good looking.
  • Pretty long battery life and really posh design. Really convenient and stable Bluetooth connection.
  • You have to open the app each time and manually activate - it would be better if the headphones remembered the previous settings.
  • Only negative is the charging cradle... It's proprietary so if I ever lost it, I suspect it would be awkward and expensive to replace.
Sennheiser Momentum Free Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black
  • The phones paired easily with my Sony phone, and I have not experienced any failures of BlueTooth connectivity when my phone is in my pocket, or within arm's reach.
  • Really good sound quality as I’d expect from sennheiser. They work great as headphones for noise cancellation and the wireless is good.
  • Most importantly the sound quality is excellent. I previously had the 'wired' version and these compare very well. Very comfortable. Good noise isolation. Easy to pair with devices.
  • The magnets that clip the heads together could be much stronger, and the buds are soft and not very noise cancelling.
  • Cannot connect two devices as one constantly drops out with an annoying voice repeating that earphones are disconnected every 30 seconds.

What customers say about "Power"
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H5 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds - Black
  • Battery life is good, I've never been caught short, and they charge up quickly.
  • Very reliable and stable and battery lasts well - about 3 to 4 hours so fine for commuting and gym etc. Very happy and would recommend.
  • Battery life is quite good between 4-5 hours of constant use, 7-8 hours with intermittent use. Recharging is fast and convinient!
  • Battery life is shocking, if you commute on long journeys I don't recomend.
  • The charging system with its dedicated pod that you need to take with you wherever.
Sennheiser Momentum Free Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black
  • They're incredibly simple to set up, have a great battery life and feel comfortable to wear.
  • Charging and connection was easy enough .. The Head phones can be registered to nine sources ! Have registered them with three apple products with no issues ..
  • Great sound quality and material quality, lasts a long time after charging. Look good and come with a case.
  • Battery life is average, but the worst thing about the whole product- getting into the charging port could not be more difficult and annoying as its cover is really tricky to take off.
  • The plastic/rubber cover for the charging port is really flimsy, not in keeping with the high quality feel of everything else.
