Design and Features
With silicone tips that ensure a good fit to the ear, Momentum True Wireless 2 follows the category standard. The device is available in black or white, both versions with a metallic appearance on the outside.
At the bottom of the model are located microphones, which ensure good audio capture. The finishing of the charger case also deserves to be highlighted, bringing a kind of fabric to the surface that gives the premium tone of the accessory.
The wireless headset offers some features to users. With the presence of touch-sensitive buttons on the external side, it is possible to control the volume, switch music, and make calls with ease. Momentum True Wireless 2 also has support for virtual assistants such as Google Assistant and Siri, allowing you to equalize the sound and control the noise input by the manufacturer’s app.
The earbuds also have a feature called Transparent Hearing, which has the mission of combining the audio played by the headset with some elements of ambient sound. The idea is to create a more secure experience since the user is not completely isolated from the outside world.
Regarding the sound quality promised by Sennheiser, Momentum True Wireless 2 offers users 7 mm drivers and a frequency response that is between 5 Hz and 21 kHz. This wide range ensures users a good sharpness in the bass, mid and treble. Also, the headset has compatibility with aptX standards and AAC codecs, which indicates good audio quality.
Still in sound quality, perhaps the main feature offered in wireless headphones today is active noise cancellation. Thus, the Sennheiser device competes directly with Apple, Samsung, and Sony headsets.
The new Sennheiser headset has an evolution compared to the previous model, with the autonomy of up to seven hours of reproduction only with the earbuds battery. With the additional charging case, you can listen to music for up to 28 hours without interruption. To compare, the original version of the product has enough battery for 4 hours of music on the earbuds and up to 12 hours with the charge available in the case.
Price and Competitors
According to Sennheiser, Momentum True Wireless 2 has a 2-year factory warranty and a price that may frighten some consumers. The device appears at the official German brand store with a price of $299.95 but can be seen on Amazon for $289.99.
With this value, the phone can be a little interesting mainly for Samsung users, as Galaxy Buds Live, recently launched in the market, is on sale for $169, while Buds+, without active noise cancellation, already appears below $129.99.
