Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 Review: Great Sound, Now With Noise Cancellation

It’s not often that I have to refer to a manual while I’m reviewing something, but that’s exactly what I found myself doing while reviewing the Rs.22464.21 Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 (MTW2). 

The earbuds, which are Sennheiser’s second stab at the true wireless form factor, shouldn’t be particularly complicated. They’re basically the same as Sennheiser’s first true wireless earbuds, albeit with added noise cancellation and better battery life. But at their default settings, their touch controls take quite a bit of getting used to. They’re annoyingly unintuitive.

Thank goodness, then, that these controls are customizable. With a little tweaking, you can end up with a pair of true wireless earbuds that sound great, feature excellent noise-canceling performance, have improved battery life, and are also fairly easy to control. They’re expensive compared to most of their true wireless competition, but I think they just about justify it, even if it won’t make them a top pick for everybody.

Sennheiser With Best Quality

The Momentum True Wireless 2s don’t come with many accessories, but they cover the basics. You get the earbuds, the charging case, a piddly 20cm USB-C cable to charge the case, and four different sizes of silicone ear tips, ranging in size from extra small to large.

There are no extra little wings to hold the earphones in your ear’s cartilage, but thankfully, I didn’t find them necessary. I popped the MTW2s in my ears, and they fit snugly the first time. 

In fact, whether I was exercising or out on a cycle ride (with noise-canceling turned off, naturally), the earbuds stayed snugly in my ears. The only time I take them out mid-exercise when I couldn’t remember if IP rated high enough to deal with my sweat. I needn’t have worried; IPX4 rated, meaning they should survive light splashes.

Specifications

In terms of tech specs, the earbuds support Bluetooth 5.1, and supported codecs include SBC, AAC, and aptX.

Both the earbuds and charging case feel solidly made. The charging case is magnetic, so the earbuds slot in with a satisfying click, and you won’t lose them if you turn the case upside-down.

You can use just the right earbud on its own to listen to music (useful if you’re doing other things at the same time), but the left doesn’t support the same functionality. It’s minor, but it’s a bit of flexibility that Apple and Sony offer with their earbuds that you won’t find here. The earbuds’ microphone quality was generally good when I placed calls. People I spoke to reported that I sounded a little quieter and muffled when speaking through the MTW2s, but that I was still easy to hear and understand.

I also didn’t experience much in the way of connection hiccups, and the earphones synced up well while I was watching video.

      At this price point I’d rather choose Airpods and Samsung TWS.
