Made for listeners who truly appreciate craft and attention to detail, Sennheiser Momentum headphone range demonstrates Sennheiser’s ongoing obsession with every aspect of audio. You’ll feel it in the accuracy and crystal clarity of the sound. You’ll find it in features allowing you to make each listening experience more rich and personal and you’ll know it in the design, materials and finish. The moment you see them, the moment you touch them. And every time you listen.
- Great sound quality
- Solid connection.
- Experience long lasting comfort.
Make the music you love sound even better, whenever you want, wherever you are. These attractive earbuds, with Sennheiser’s audiophile driver technology, guarantee superior stereo sound performance at all times. Thanks to advanced Qualcomm apt-X Low Latency compatibility, you can experience media with perfectly lip-synced audio, whilst 2-mic noise cancellation beam forming technology and Transparent Hearing allows you to always be aware of your surroundings, with or without your music on.
As is the trend, the Sennheiser wireless earbuds come with their own carry case that doubles as a docking and charging station. This compact, fabric covered box charges via USB-C, with the earpieces dropping into secure magnetic slots where they start charging via their gold contacts.
The pairing process for these wireless in-ear headphones starts as soon as you remove them from the case. They’re immediately discoverable, and if you ever need to pair them with another device, simply press and hold on the outside of both earpieces to restart the process.
A small LED light on the rear indicates the level of charge in the box – green for more than 50 percent, yellow for less than 50 percent and red for empty. It’s a small detail, but handy for quickly checking if you have enough juice to charge them.
At full capacity, the case provides enough power for two additional charges, which amounts to a total of 12 hours of battery life. The headphones need roughly an hour and a half of charging to reach full power from empty.
With some wireless in-ears, it’s difficult to monitor how much charge is left, but that’s not the case with the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. If you power up the Sennheiser Smart Control app (compatible with iOS 11.0 and above and Android 7 and above) you can see an exact percentage of power remaining in each earpiece. This attention to detail means you should never get caught out.
In many ways, it’s an impressive True Wireless debut from Sennheiser. The design is classy, they boast some useful features, battery life is good and so too is sound quality.
But these Sennheiser wireless earbuds cost around twice as much as the class-leading and wonderfully musical Sony WF1000Xs and for their price, the user experience isn’t perfect. A good deal will make them a more appealing proposition, but for now, they don’t quite justify that elusive fifth star.
