There is no doubt which brand started the trend of true wireless headphones. Now the German headphone specialist, Sennheiser, enters the race with their first foray, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earphones.
Here are a few of our favorite features of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Earphones:
Listening clarity that’s like ’being there’ thanks to Sennheiser’s category-leading wireless sound technology.
Hassle-free connection via Bluetooth 5.0 and low latency for perfect audio and video sync.
Fingertip control of calls, music, and voice assistant through touchpads on each earbud with one tap access to Google Assistant or Siri.
Smart Pause – so your music pauses the second you remove an earbud.
Two-Mic Beam technology for High-quality voice pick-up even in noisy conditions.
Slim, lightweight design with ear tips in 4 sizes for all-day comfort.
Internal equalizer on the app lets you personalize your audio.
Up to 4 hours of listening per charge with 2 additional charges from the case.
Stay aware of your surrounding sounds with Transparent Hearing.
- Durable splash resistant (IPX 4) materials go as hard as you do.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Buds
Like other True Wireless earphones, the Sennheiser Momentum buds come with a charging case. Once the buds are charged, they have four-hour battery life. The charging case can recharge the buds twice, giving a total of 12-hours. The case can be charged with its USP Type-C connection. Charging time for the case is 1.5 hours for a full charge.
The case itself if stylish with a tweed material. It weighs 2.04 ounces and measures 3.12-inches wide, 1.77-inches deep, and 1.37-inches thick. It fits comfortably in most pockets but is a tad bulky.
The case has a magnetically secured lid. Open the case, and it uses magnets to draw the buds in an align them with the four spring-loaded, gold-plated contacts for each bud.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless buds come with four different sizes of silicon tips; there are no silicone wings. Follow the instructions on how to insert into the ears. The shape of the buds slide in and seemingly lock things into place., but there are no plastic/silicone “wings” or “fins” of the kind often provided to hold things in place. It turns out they’re not needed. They stay secure and are comfortable. The right earbud weighs a smidge more than the left.
Inside each of the buds is a 7mm dynamic driver. Sennheiser rates their frequency at a 5 hertz to 21,000 hertz, saying they will produce the sound pressure level of a powerful 107dB for just 1mW of input, less than 0.08 percent distortion.
They are rated IPX4, which means, they’re waterproof with a bit of rain or work-out sweat.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Buds In Use
Each bud has a tap-sensitive surface. Tap once, twice or three times, or tap and hold to control the buds with these functions:
- Skip forwards
- Skip backwards
- Accept and end calls
- Reject calls
- Activate Siri/Google Assistant
- Adjust volume up or down
- Switch on or off “Transparent Hearing”
I like the ability to control the volume on the buds themselves. It makes me feel more “disconnected” from my phone.
One of my favorite features is the “transparent hearing” It pipes in sound from the outside, using hands-free microphones, pauses the music and allows me to restart the music while retaining the outside sound feed. I use this feature a lot at work. No matter how many times I say, “I’m going to put in my earbuds now; do you need anything?” someone will come up to me shortly after and have many, many questions or issues.
In addition to the “transparent hearing” feature, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless buds recognize when you take either bud from your ear, and the music playback stops.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Buds Range and Speed
My husband compared these to his air pods, and the one area that stood out for him was the Sennheiser Momentum buds are incredibly responsive. His air pods take a few seconds before responding when he uses play/pause. However, the Sennheiser Momentum had a minimal delay.
He also commented that there are no dropouts with these buds when his phone is in his pocket. He put his phone down and was able to walk 27 yards away before there was an unbroken connection.
