Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones review

Recently, major headphone manufacturers have begun to mass-produce fully wireless headphones with a charging case. Apple, Meizu, Xiaomi, Huawei, Sony and Bose already have such devices, it is not surprising that Sennheiser could not stay away from this trend. The positioning of all these headphones is the same and quite simple: more convenience and less wires. And then everyone focuses on their own, for example, Sennheiser focused on high-quality sound, convenient controls and the original appearance of the charging case.

Appearance

It is clear that globally the design of such a headphone form factor is identical for all companies: there is a charging case and small headphones in it, but locally this does not prevent experimenting with its shape and materials. So, the case for Momentum True Wireless is covered with a slightly rough fabric. This immediately gives the headphones a few points to originality and appearance. However, I am concerned about the practicality of such materials. If you wipe off droplets of some sauce from plastic or metal as easy as shelling pears, then they will remain indelible on the fabric. On the other hand, how often do you eat next to the charging case?

The dimensions of the case together with the headphones are 78.6 x 45 x 35 mm, the weight is 70 grams, compared to the same AirPods, it is more bulky. However, it didn't really bother me personally. The headphones are charged via a Type-C cable, and here I am very glad that Sennheiser did not save on the connector.

It is convenient to put the headphones back into the case, thanks to magnetic finishing. You just lightly press the earpiece against the groove and it immediately slides into it.

Connectivity and wearability

For the initial connection, you will need Sennheiser's Smart Control app, available for Android and iOS. After installing it, put on the headphones, hold your fingers on the touch buttons for five seconds, and then the program will prompt you to connect the accessory.

Similar to AirPods, I assumed that the earpiece speaker should be located on top, and its “base” should be on the bottom, and put on the headphones like this. Shaking my head a little, I realized that they were just falling out of my ears. I was insanely upset, tried all the complete ear pads, but the problem was not solved.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones review

It turned out that I just put them on incorrectly: the speaker of the earphone is located below the rest of it, and after correct installation, they sat firmly and securely in my ears.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones review

In general, the design of these headphones is more bulky than the same AirPods, but I liked the form factor. Despite the large “base”, it fits perfectly into the auricle.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones review

Before talking about the sound quality, I would first like to draw your attention to the fact that, unlike AirPods, these headphones are in-ear, or simply “gags”. Personally, I love just this format, it provides better sound insulation, and such headphones can be listened to in the subway without annoying others.

The headphones have two built-in microphones for voice calls, we tried to call Roma Belykh and evaluate the quality of the sound transmission: it turned out that they heard me quite quietly, and the sound was with a characteristic “ding”. We tried regular voice calls, as well as audio calls via Telegram and WhatsApp, the situation was repeated everywhere.

Microphones have one more task. They participate in the support of the Transparent Hearing function. When enabled, you can hear ambient noise and conversations while listening to music. Interestingly, this is achieved by broadcasting sound from the microphones to the earpiece, and not simply by lowering the volume. The technology really works, but the difference is not so tangible.

I liked the sound quality in the headphones, as a rule, you do not expect this from a wireless solution. I can’t say that I heard some new notes in my favorite compositions, but the sound detailing pleased me, the headphones highlight each instrument and the performer’s voice. At the same time, both classical music and heavy rock and a lot of bass are carefully handled. The sound seemed balanced to me, the headphones coped well with all frequencies, there was no going to the top or bottom. Separately, I note support for the aptX codec, with which Archive: Nice Pigons for Sale you can listen to high bitrate music wirelessly. The difference in sound between an aptX-enabled smartphone and an iPhone is small, but still there, and not in favor of the latter.

Management

Let me remind you that the outer part of the headphones is a touch panel and many actions are assigned to it, allowing you to once again not take out your smartphone. Below is a list of actions for each earbud.

  • Normal press - play/pause
  • Double tap - next song
  • Triple tap - previous song
  • Hold button - volume down
  • Normal press - call the voice assistant / accept an incoming call
  • Double tap to hang up on a call or turn on Transparent Hearing
  • Hold button - volume up

I really liked such a large set of actions, you really can hardly get a smartphone.

It is interesting that all controls are duplicated by voice comments, however, in English. However, if you don't like it, you can turn them off in the app's settings.

Opening hours

The battery capacity of the headphones themselves is not indicated, but the capacity of the case is 650 mAh. The manufacturer claims up to 4 hours of operation from a single charge of the headphones and up to 12 hours of operation when using a full charge of the case. My measurements are pretty similar to these data, I got about 3.5 hours of music on a single charge. Let me remind you once again that the case is charged via Type-C.

Conclusion

In retail, headphones are sold for 23,000 rubles. The amount is quite impressive. For this money, I would highlight the following advantages: original appearance, good quality sound and aptX support. Disadvantages - a quiet sound during a voice call and some impracticality of the fabric case wrap.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones review

But it is important to note that these headphones have enough competitors. For 5-6 thousand there are inexpensive Meizu Pop and Xiaomi AirDots. For 12-15 thousand - Apple AirPods, Sony WF-1000X and Samsung IconX. Of all the models described, I personally used only AirPods, and this particular model wins with its plug form factor, a more versatile Type-C connector, and better sound quality. But is it worth the overpayment of several thousand - everyone decides for himself, because everyone's budget is different.
