Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless review
Quick verdict: The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones offer good audio quality, but you could do better for the same asking price.
- Audio output is great
- Case is nicely designed
- No noise cancellation
- Battery life is ordinary
If you're a fan of all things Sennheiser, then the company's first take on True Wireless headphones might have some appeal from an audio perspective, and they carry with them the promise of the kind of high fidelity audio that Sennheiser is well known for.
Unfortunately, that's about all they offer, and in the competitive true wireless space, at the price point that Sennheiser puts on the Momentum True Wireless headphones, you can easily do better.
- Simple buds that look good
- Nice battery case
- Touch controls
- Audio output is rich
- Lacks noise cancelling
- Around 3-4 hours of charge
- Battery case provides 2 charges
- Good audio, but lacking in too many features for the price
Should you buy it?
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones do deliver nicely on their promise of good quality audio output, and if you already like the company's general sound quality then they would serve you nicely. However, with the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 headphones already in the market, they're very much yesterday's model, and that makes them less compelling.
There's also the fact that they sit in a very competitive market, at a price point that's at or above headphones that do offer longer battery life, equivalent audio quality and features such as noise cancellation. The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones are fine, but for your money, you should arguably score more than that.
