Headphones Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 presents a different approach to design and materials used than QC 35. Each piece of them is made of high quality material – from black leather pads with yellow stitching to hinges made of brushed stainless steel.

In addition to wireless, you can connect to a smartphone with a removable 1.4 m cable with microphone and integrated phone controls for Apple and Android phones. The buttons are located on the right side of the headphones. You have power / pairs and volume buttons and media controls. Pressing the volume button twice in a row will jump the song forward and press three times the playback to the previous song. This works fine on Apple and Android devices.
Meanwhile, Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones are almost entirely made of plastic. The quality is high, but it certainly looks like a product with lower quality. It comes in two choices of black and silver color. Silver version looks much better. They are classy and stylish and it is a nice change over the more popular black headphones.
There is a volume of light indicating Bluetooth connectivity and power level. Due to stainless steels, you can be sure that the adjustment stays firm when adjusting when wearing. Plastics have advantages as light. And indeed it weighs less than SM 2.0 – 25 grams less precisely. QC 35 is ridiculously light compared to 1.2 m, 3.5 mm headphone cable without the locking mechanism that we have in SM 2.0. Although made of this headphone is sturdy and not easily broken.
