Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones Product Review
Living in New York City, you can’t help notice that it seems every other person on the street is walking around with earbud headphones. It’s as much a functional accessory as it has become a status and fashion symbol. They are usually white and have little stems that hang down from the ears. I have typically been an early adopter of technology and have tried a few different types of earbuds, never finding ones that worked well. They disconnect when you run, turn your head, move your phone and the voice and audio quality is fair or just poor. I have returned every pair I have owned.
That’s why I still use an “old-fashioned” mono style Bluetooth earpiece – until now. I owned and operated a camera and video superstore for over 25 years. So, when I heard one of the most trusted brands in our industry had high-quality ear buds I ran out and got a pair of Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones at Best Buy.
Here’s what the un-boxing looked like:
Charging was easy: just put the earbuds in their case and plug in the included USB-C cable. A feature I really like is that the light color goes from yellow to green, so you know when they are fully charged.
Pairing to my smartphone was easy and almost automatic. Their app, “Sennheiser Smart Control” is also easy to use. It has limited functionality but has an equalizer and the ability to reduce eliminate noise-canceling through the “Transparent Hearing” setting. This allows you to chose whether to hear outside noises or not. That’s very cool.
All controls are available though a press on the outer buttons on the buds. Push on the right side for volume up and left side for volume down. That’s very cool.
Another cool feature is the buds turn off music when you take one out of your ear and they turn on and off (and pair) when you take them in and out of the very high quality charging case. They come with several sizes of ear fittings and they are very comfortable and snug in my ears.
Performance: I ran with them and they stayed put in my ears. I walked with them for several hours and was not tired of them at all. I used them in the rain, moved my phone around on my body and they stayed paired flawlessly with no skips. Sound quality is great on both listing and speaking and the volume goes very high, which is unusual for their small size.
When I consider factors such as ergonomics, performance, size and fit, I can say with confidence that these Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones are the best Bluetooth listening devices I have ever used.
