Review: Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless


They’re undoubtedly the smartest wireless earbuds money can buy

In the last couple of years, the popularity of wireless earbuds has soared. It’s now more common than ever to see people wearing them in the malls, commuting with them on buses and trains, and using them to take calls in and outside their offices.

When it comes to premium audio accessories, Sennheiser needs no introduction. This German audio maker has garnered a reputation in manufacturing the world’s best audio systems since 1945. With the debut of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless last year, they have now ventured into the world of wireless earbuds.

That being said, the question on everyone’s mind is: Why should one shell out AED 1,249 for wireless earbuds when there are more economical options in the market? The answer is simple. When it comes to audio quality, Sennheiser excels and how.

While AED 1,249 is a lot to spend, you get plenty of features in return

Different environments, similar results

Unlike Apple’s Airpods, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless is sweatproof. I’ve been using them religiously at the gym- which is, by the way, very loud! The incessant chatter and the blaring music in the background got nothing on the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. When it comes to noise-canceling, it’s truly impressive how capable these earbuds are. An incredible feature that has come handy is Transparent Hearing – this uses the microphones in the earbuds to pick up the sound around you and plays it back through the buds so that you can have short conversations without removing your earbuds. It’s pure genius, and it actually works quite efficiently.

I’ve used these while being on a long-haul flight and in the New York City subway. Both places were considerably loud, however, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless was still victorious. Despite the air pressure and the noisy commute on the subway, you can still allow yourself to completely tune out of your surroundings and immerse yourself into your playlist. I do, however, wish that the charging case was more compact and travel-friendly.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless review

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless gets it all right, without suffering any major drawbacks

To summarise

If you’re looking to invest in a pair of durable, luxurious wireless earbuds with excellent playback quality, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless is a brilliant option. Although it is priced at a higher spectrum, you get your money’s worth with the additional added features that cheaper competitors cannot provide.

I’m totally loving the…

➕ Unparalleled sound quality – it’s outstanding
➕ Fact that it’s sweatproof – this is great because I can take them to the gym without any worry
➕ Transparent Hearing feature
➕ Sennheiser Smart Control App integration – this app allows you to customize your bass and treble preferences

I wish they could…

➖ Make the overall device smaller. People with small ears (including me) might face difficulties fitting these in comfortably
➖ Make just one bud work. If you take one out, the other one stops as well
