If you prioritize open, natural sound and you plan on using your headphones mainly for music and TV at home, the AKG K712 Pro is an excellent choice with a very good soundstage, but they are large and not ideal for outdoor use or exercise. On the other hand, if you need something versatile for calls, meetings, or outdoor activities, including exercise, and you value features like active noise canceling and health tracking, the Sennheiser Momentum Sport is a top contender; just know that you'll sacrifice some soundstage for the extra portability and features. Keep in mind, the AKGs need an amplifier for the best experience, while the Sennheisers are ready to go right out of the box with wireless capabilities and additional app functions. Give Feedback

Headfonics

Michael | October 2013
"AKG has created a mini-masterpiece in my opinion. I enjoy this headphone a great deal and it will become my go-to reference headphone for the time being. She is slick, sexy, well-balanced, and crazy comfortable."

Tech Radar

Amelia Schwanke | January 2024
"We hadn't been expecting a new pair of dedicated sports buds but the surprise was nonetheless exciting. I got to try out the new buds at CES 2024 and while they have stayed true to delivering that "signature" Sennheiser sound, with a wide soundstage and strong sense of detail, it’s the extra wearable tech inside them that stands out to me against the best workout headphones."
