Wireless audio accessories are the most expensive and sought-after products in the market right now. A few days ago, Sennheiser did an epic release by launching the very new stylish, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless in-Ear Bluetooth Headphone with Multi-Touch Fingertip Control.
The earbuds are well-designed and premium but a little expensive. But does it perform as good as it looks? Lets quickly go and find out whether these pairs are worth the price.
Table Of Contents
The Momentum comes in a rectangular small white box with the Sennheiser branding on it, along with other specification and information around the back and sides. By sliding up the front portion, you can open the box. The packaging is too very premium.
Wireless earbuds, Silicone Ear Adapter Sets in size XS/S/M/L, Charging Case, USB-C Charging Cable of 20 cm, Safety Guide and Quick Guide are there in that small package.
The medium sized ear adapter is directly mounted on the earpiece. A major plus point is that it has a USB type-C charging cable.
The charging case looks very luxurious and classy. There are LED indicator, type-C charging port and a Bluetooth pairing button on the back of the case. The LED light glows green if the pairs in the case have a full charge, yellow if it’s half, and red if it’s running out.
The case is filled with magnets that help the earbuds to snap-in. We can also use this charging case as a carry case.
Design And Features
Seriously, I love the earbuds, it’s classy. Its made up dense plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap. On the back of the pairs, have circular metallic tips which are touch sensitive. You can simply control your music, calls and voice assistant through this touchpad technology.
On the inside portion of the earbuds, there are gold plated pins arranged beautifully which connect each earbud to the provided charging/carry case. Also, there are LED indicator on both pairs which shows your connectivity status.
The buds aren’t heavy, its lightweight, weighs only 72.6g or 2.56oz. And most importantly they are IPX4 sweating/water-resistant. That doesn’t mean that you can immerse the pairs into the water. It just meant you can use them for workouts and runs.
If you are wondering what an IPX4 means, then let me explain that in a few words. The IPX standard is a standard defined to measure the water-resistance level of a device. This ranges from IPX0 to IPX8, where IPX0 indicates no water resistance while IPX8 indicates that your device is safe up to 3 feet under water. The Sennheiser Momentum has an IPX4 rating which means that it is water resistant towards splashes of water like when you accidentally splash water when putting an ice cube on a glass of water.
The touch controls are instinctive. Just tap on the left earbud’s metallic tip to pause/play the music, double tap to skip the track and triple tapping to play the previous music. To control the volume up or down, place a finger on the right or left earbud respectively.
By tapping on the right earbud you can summon the voice assistant like Siri of iPhone, Google Assistant of Android. And for the pairing process, tap and press on the right and left earbuds for five seconds.
The smart control app should be installed to your device in order to personalise your headphone settings and to boost the bass and treble. The pairs provide a hassle-free connection via Bluetooth 5.0 with a range of 50 ft. Unfortunately, they can be connected to only one device at a time.
The sound is neither that great nor disappointing. The 7mm drivers of the pair deliver a controlled and quality sound. They have a great deep and punchy bass. The highs are pretty balanced in normal volume, mid-range is remarkable.
Highs turned muddy at high volume. I noticed a leakage when I boosted the bass. Since the treble is a bit disappointing, these pairs are better suited for bass-heavy music genres. These are my experiences. Some people don’t feel any distortion or muddiness in maximum sound with heavy bass.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless in-Ear Bluetooth Headphone provides great noise isolation even though there aren’t any features like NC. Perfect fit earbuds are more effective than an NC enabled headphone.
The microphone is built integrated with the earbuds. I made a few calls using the pairs. Calls were pretty clear in a quiet environment but in a noisy environment, the earbuds struggle to cancel noise.
The call is playing out of both pairs, that is appreciable. The recording quality is poor.
Battery life is also a disappoint because it lasts only for about 4 hours. It takes 1.2 hours to get fully charged.
Where To Buy Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless in-Ear Bluetooth Headphone is a terrific pair. Very well built, stylish earbuds with smart controls but they aren’t for everyone. It is expensive than some NC enabled over-ear headphones and other workout earphones. The audio quality isn’t that perfect according to the price.
So, if you are looking for a durable lag less, stylish headphones with great isolation from noise then grab it soon.
