    The best BT listening devices I have ever used

    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. 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. Sennheiser’s flagship MOMENTUM range of headphones continues to break new ground through an outstanding fusion of advanced technology, uncompromised sound performance and the highest quality materials. They have brought their peerless MOMENTUM ethos to a breakthrough new product – the MOMENTUM True Wireless. The premium Bluetooth earbuds set new standards for audio quality, comfort and craftsmanship. So, I guess it’s time to retire my “old-fashioned” mono style Bluetooth earpiece. I will be enjoying a new way of listening to my phone audio, but I won’t have any ugly white stems hanging from my ears.

    I am loving these new Sennheiser Earbud Headphones

    For the past couple of weeks I have ditched my white wireless headphones and I have been listening to music and watching videos on these new wireless headphones from Sennheiser now available at Best Buy. I have been running, walking, talking, driving, slip sliding, relaxing and chillaxing for the past couple of weeks and I have to honestly tell you I am loving the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones. I used to travel a fair amount (nearly 2 million actual flown miles on Delta) and I was an early adopter of noise-cancelling headphones. But I was always getting tangled in my cords. I then moved on to Bluetooth headphones. The challenge I had with some of my original Bluetooth headphones is that I could maybe get a couple hours with of music listening, but then it would die and I’d be stuck listening to the noise of the airplane. The same would go for working out at the gym or on my treadmill. The corded headphones caused a few treadmill or weightlifting mishaps and so for me it has been Bluetooth headphones for about the past 10 years. With changes in Bluetooth technology and phones, wireless headphones were always playing catch up. With the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones, you will be rocking with Bluetooth 5.0. According to HowToGeek.com, Bluetooth 5.0 provides Bluetooth Low Energy to reduce power consumption, play audio on two connected devices at the same time (way too cool) and improved speed and a greater range (up to 800 feet). All of this adds up to a greater audio experience in my opinion, while also providing low latency for exception audio and video synchronization. I did not notice any “dub” effect or lag in any videos I have watched. Not the case with some other Bluetooth headphones that I have previously used. When it comes to sound quality, the Sennhesier MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones is truly superior to all Bluetooth wireless headphones I have tried to date. With the Smart Control app, you can customize your bass and treble outputs to truly make this a personalized listening experience. For me, I prefer more treble than I do bass, which is easy to change. With the design of the headphones, they fit snug into your ears and it really blocks out a fair amount of ambient noise. This is great for listening to audio and video, but sometimes if someone is talking to you it can be hard to hear. Alas, Sennheiser has this figured out and you can enable Transparent Hearing either through the app or by double tapping the right earbud. This feature allows you to hear important announcements or surrounding sirens – all while your music continues to play and without having to remove your earbuds. When it comes to making telephone calls, these Sennheiser earbuds incorporates Two-Mic noice cancellation beam technology, which helps deliver high quality voice pick up even in the most noisy areas like a supermarket or train station. Once you pull your Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud headphones out of the sleek carrying case, they will automatically power up. To pair to your smartphone, computer or Smart Control app, you will press each button of the earbuds and hold for five seconds. Pairing is super easy, fast and enables you to quickly move between devices. The headphones come with four different sizing buds, which is great for me as I have two different sized ear canals which sometimes makes for a challenge when it comes to various earbuds. Insert the earbuds into your ear and slide backwards slightly to lock them in place. These earbuds are so easy to get in and out of my ears and I hardly even notice that I am wearing them as they are comfortable. The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones are great for physical activity. I have been able to pound the treadmill at a high rate of speed. To control the headphones you can quickly control music with a push or two of the button in the left earbud. The button for the right earbud controls call functions, such as accepting, ending and rejecting. I haven’t had any issues with the headphones coming out of my ears and when I sweat no issues at all with these headphones slipping out of my ears. Depending on the mobile phone, one quick push of the right button and Siri, Google Assistant or Baidu is quickly at your fingertips or shall I say at your voice lips. What about volume control? You’re covered with that functionality by either holding in the right earbud button to increase volume or the left earbud button to decrease volume. The compact, sleek and slim carrying and charging case will provide up to four hours of listening per charge as well as an additional two charges – for a total of 12 hours of listening time before you have to charge up the case. For me, I have been getting about 75 minutes of talk time before my charge goes to zero and about 4 hours and 15 minutes of listening time before my charge is depleted. One thing I have noticed is that my left earbud seems to be on average at 93% after charging overnight and my right earbud is at 100% overnight. Not quite sure why this is the case, but thought I would point this out. For those of you that might be used to Apple products, the Sennheiser case is powered by a USB-C charging port, so this will work well for a new MacBook pro charger. I would have also loved to have a longer charging cord because right now I have to mainly charge off of my USB port on my computer as the cord isn’t long enough for me to charge on my kitchen counter. An extra three or four inches of charging cord length would have been ideal. I do find that the carrying case is a little uncomfortable in my pocket as it is larger than other wireless earbud charging cases – however, I do find that the case is easier to find in the event I misplace it. I also have noticed it was easier to find in my pants before I washed my jeans. Overall I am definitely loving my Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones. The sound quality, latency, touch control, carrying case and amazing ability to easily switch between talking and audio/video output makes these a great addition for any audiophile or lover of a quality earbud headphone. Had I been able to give this 4.5 stars I totally would have. I would give this a 5 for audio quality and ease of use, but a four for the carrying case size and the adjustment needed for comfort. Right now these earbud headphones are perfect for me and hopefully you will agree.

    Amazing Set!

    -Audio: 10/10 -Connectivity: 8/10 -Comfort: 8/10 -Quality: 8/10 -Features: 8/10 -Design: 10/10 -Battery Life: 7/10 I pre-ordered these from Sennheiser as soon as I found out Sennheiser was coming out with their version of True Wireless... Coming from Bose's SoundSport Wireless (not the free wireless) earbud I have to see these are by far the best headphones on the market... In the pros and cons section I detailed certain key areas I'd think people would consider when purchasing any set of headphones or earbuds... The sound quality is currently unmatched but we can't only focus on that. Comfort becomes an issue after excessive use (obviously), it doesn't matter which silicon tips you use, your primary concern is keeping them in. These are NOT a one size fits all... I'm not referring to the tips it's mainly the overall unit where the driver sits. I recommended these to a friend and they had a hard time securing them in. The bottom wouldn't fit the Concha and barely would let the ear bud tips go into the ear canal. In other words the overall size of the device was too big, they ended up going with Apple's AirPods since most aftermarket earbuds adopts similar design cues. Quality Design/Structure is minimalist, modern and slick. I love the brush aluminum style and the dark grey (almost black) color. I would prefer more color options but the dark tone and clean bling style really sets the unit off. Now, the charging case lacks a lot of quality... it feels abnormally lights for it's size and it's rather big. The cloth style design looks cool and sleek at first but can get dirty after a lot of use. brush aluminum style or black leather (for the price you're paying) would of been better in my opinion. Also, the flip hinge is extremely weak, at first glance I said to myself, "This is going to be the part that breaks first"... sure enough it's been cracking after a while. I've only had these for about 5 months. I let Sennheiser know and they replaced the case quickly. (Another thing, EXCEPTIONAL customer service over at Sennheiser!) Connectivity was an issue at first but eventually everything panned out with the app. At times you lose control when you take them off the music keeps playing when when you put them on it stops as if it has it's functions reversed. Crackling noise occurs when powerful magnets are near, I work in a County/State facility so metal detectors often distort the sounds, so, keep in mind to take these off in airports and such. The features are ok, but there is a lot of input lag with volume control and the simple pause and play functions. Volume control also isn't accurate, when you hit volume up or down it goes up as if you tapped it twice instead of one. When you get a call the transparent noise cancellation option kicks in and could get rather annoying between calls and your music and could be dangerous if you're working out and crossing roads. There should be an option to go full manual with these feature... even if you turn it off in-app it still activates while using Google Assistant/Siri or if there is an incoming call. Battery life is acceptable, could be better comparing to the competition... The case is too large to have such a small battery...and at times your earbuds don't turn off after use and continue to play and run down both the bud's batterys and the cases battery. When everything is fine between the 2 charges and the earbuds you can get a full day of use without charging. The app is a nice touch allowing you to use an equalizer to fine tune your audio... I use my buds with a Note 8 and the OS already comes with it's own equalizer, the app would be an excellent addition for iPhones being that iOS limits it's users of fine tuning sound without using their limited EQ presets (I use to own iPhone(s) for 10 yrs since the 1st Gen 2G iPhone)... if it's not jailbroken it's garbage. :P Con: -Crackle noise through metal detectors (airports, government facilities, etc.) -Charging case is flimsy and big. -Sometimes the earbuds loses control and start playing when you take them off stop playing when you put them on. -At times charging case doesn't shut off earbuds and continues playing (running battery down) -Charging case's hinge is weak and flimsy. -Control's have input lag, delay to respond. -Volume control isn't accurate. -Noise Cancellation (Transparent Hearing) goes on during calls (Google Assistant/Siri) and can be annoying when call ends.

    Amazing sound quality

    I've been on the market for some truely wireless ear buds for a while now. I wanted some comfortable, sleek, great quality sounding ear buds... I tried out the Seinnheister true momentum ear buds and the Jabra Elite Active 65T. If you're looking for ear buds with amazing sound quality -- I'd highly recommend these!!! The sound quality is superior. Functionality wise, I would say the Jabra elites beats the Seinnheiser out right. The Jabra Elite Active 65T can connect up to 5 devices at a time and the Seinnheiser can only connect to one device at a time. If you wanted to connect to another device you would have to manually turn the Bluetooth on and off on each device to connect and reconnect ... It was a bit of annoyance. The Jabra Elites can connect to mutiple devices at one time. Great for users who have two work phones, and or is always on the go. At one point, I connected to two phones and my computer ... I accepted calls from both devices and also was able to listen to my laptop. It was a great function to have!! The background/ambient noise option on the Jabra seem to be more loud and more clear compared to the Seinneheiser. Nonetheless it does what it needed to do. As far as the case goes - I would say the Seinnheiser case is pretty neat. The ear buds are magnetic..so even if you open it on the wrong end..they won't fall out.. whereas the Jabra elites would fall... BUT...I kind of wished Seinnheiser would offer the manual on and off switch on each ear buds... Unfortunately the only way to turn them off is to put them back in the case .. and whenever you put them in the case.. they would automatically charge.. and that would be the only way to turn it "off" ... If the case is out of batteries... The ear buds will still be in "idle" mode for about 20 minutes instead of completely turninf off.. so ..you never really know if it's truly off... The only other way to help make it turn off would be turning of the Bluetooth from the connected device..so it was a bit of an hassle.. In comparison, the Jabra elites offers the option to manually turn off both ear buds or one or the other. If you're very active and live a very active (sweaty) life style --- Id recommend the Jabras over the Seinnheiser.. only because the Jabras have a higher water resistant rating compared to these. As far as battery life goes - the right Seinnheiser ear bud always seem to have lower battery percentage compared to the left. I'm assuming it was because it was the main connector to the phone ... But I never really had the opportunity to put a full charge to test..since the only way to turn them off is to put it back in the case lol... Overall, I love the sound .. and if you can live with the simple functionality ... I'd definitely recommend these!!! It was very hard and sad to see these go... But functionality wise.. I definitely prefer the Jabra elites ... But, for the time being.. I'm still on the hunt for something that has the sound and functionality.. unfortunately still no luck!

    Painful, Mediocre, and Random Popping..?

    Equipment: iPhone XS Max 512gb (iOS 12.1.2) Apps: Tidal, YouTube, Sennheiser Smart Control These earbuds are receiving consistently positive reviews, and I honestly cannot see why. I purchased these with very high hopes of replacing my AirPods with earbuds that offer better sound quality. These did not fulfill that want. These earbuds are MASSIVE. They are extremely thick and do not feel right in the ear. After trying all four sets of rubber tips, I ended up barely favoring the XS set, even though my ears are average sized. When these earbuds are inserted, they press up against the inner perimeter of your ear, which at first makes them feel secure, but then make them ache after five minutes of use. And if you even slightly touch them or move your head to look up or down, they become loose and start slowly sliding out. The battery life is pretty decent while wearing them, as I was typically able to achieve about 3.25 hrs per charge at about 40-50% volume. However, my left earbud would always have about 7% less battery than the right for some reason, even when both started at 100%. I am very confused as to why the massive case only offers an additional 8 hours of battery life. Although the case is not huge compared to other true wireless earbuds, it’s bulk makes me wonder why the case is so thick with a tiny battery. I did not experience any connection issues while pairing or while using the earbuds. In terms of audio delay when watching videos, it is barely noticeable. If you are picky you can spot it, but almost everyone will never see it. I have no idea where these reviews of terrific sound quality are originating from. I tried them and felt they were far worse than my AirPods. No matter what settings I had the app’s equalizer set to, they always sounded muddy. The bass response is minimal at best, which is a huge disappointment. The treble sounds to be the most prominent, but not by much. Miss and bass just sound washed out, and the sound I experienced felt flatlined with a blanket over it. They block out noise PASSIVELY (not actively like others are stating) fairly well, until they start sliding out. The case they come in feels cheap because it is. The exterior woven fabric certainly adds a nice look and feel, but the use of plastic for the case makes the hinge wobbly and the experience feel under par. The earbuds themselves are made of plastic as well, and they also feel cheap. The uncomfortable feeling I experienced possibly could have been offset by at least offering a rubber exterior or something slightly more premium. The straw that broke the camel’s back for these was the random popping I was experiencing watching YouTube videos. In three videos I watched with dialogue, I was hearing random electrostatic-sounding noises from the right earbud. I thought these noises were coming from the videos themselves, so I decided to listen to the same sections with my AirPods and did not hear them. These pops were extraordinarily loud, despite my volume. The utilization of Qualcomm drivers may have something to do with this. It’s just weird how very specific moments in videos produced this. They were not random, and I did go back after a few hours passed to retest this, and I was able to replicate the pops every time. Overall, I have little to positively say about these earbuds. They’re painfully uncomfortable, offer lousy sound, and have technical issues that should not plague a $300 set of earbuds. Although AirPods are far from being the best-sounding earbuds in the world, their $159.00 price tag puts these to shame. Nearly double the price downgrades my. sound quality, battery life, and technical reliability. But hey, Sennheiser’s case looks pretty.

    In our family headphones are a big deal. Headphones are part of our daily life as well as one of the top go-to items when we travel. My husband and I  use headphones to listen to favorite music and stream movies while we work. Our son with autism uses headphones to help him calm down and tune noises. For years, we’ve looked for small sized headphones to pack, but the trouble is that when we've settled for the smaller headphones the quality of the sound was just not there. After years of looking around for a set of compact headphones with an exceptional sound, we finally came across the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless earbud headphones. These small buds manage to combine advanced technology with uncompromised sound performance. One of the things our son hated for years was the pressure of the headphones against his ears on long haul flights. Well, these certainly fix the problem. Though quite large and hefty for wireless buds, the momentums provide excellent noise cancellation. For the first time in years, our son can sit and listen to his movies for hours totally undisturbed. I’ve got to admit that when I first saw the earbuds, I was pretty skeptical about how good they could be. I was wrong! The  sound is impressive.  Those little buds manage to deliver superb clarity that I haven’t come across in any other headphones- wireless or wired. The folks at Sennheiser know their wireless buds are among the most expensive in their class, so they made sure to use the top of the line technology in the design. There are so many adjectives Id like to use to describe them, but I will only use a selected few that come to mind like;  compact, elegant, and packable! But as a mom, my favorite feature is the transparent hearing. The earbuds can go from soundproof to being able to hear what’s going on around you just by tapping the right ear twice. Mmm, no more excuses starting with  'Mom, I didn't hear you...' What you should know Since the buds come with no buttons switches or labels, you might be slightly puzzled at first how the earbuds work. To start you off here some helpful tips: #download the free app for ioS and Android. It will help control, personalize, update, and configure your headphones. #hold both touchpads for 5 seconds to turn on pairing mode. # tap left earbud once to play and pause music. #hold  left bud to control music volume.tap right earbud once to access Google Assistant, Siri or Cortana. #tap right bud to answer phone calls. #the earbuds have four adjustable sizes. It may take a few minutes and trials to get the right fit, but it is worth it. #Check pockets before doing laundry! As I mentioned before these pups are super small and can be forgotten in a pocket. Worth the price? Again, it depends on your needs but our short answer is yes. If you enjoy the crisp sound on headphones and seek quality, these buds are a great investment. At a  $300 price tag, they are on the pricier side;  but for tech buffs and avid listeners to music, they are the way to go.

    Overhyped product

    TL:DR- overhyped , boring sound , low volume level , bad isolation, don’t believe all the reviews you see online (I too saw them, decided to get them , and returned them after a week) Purchased these about a week ago , I’m very familiar with Sennheiser products and sound , I own a few of they’re headphones and expected a certain level that these just... didn’t really offer. Fit - they do fit pretty good in my ears , isolation isn’t so good and you can hear almost everything that’s going around you , after 2 hours of using them my ear would start to hurt pretty bad. 5/10 Style - I do like them style wise - 9/10 Sound - very mediocre, the Sennheiser clarity is definitely there , other than that? A very boring sound in my personal opinion , treble was bad , bass was non existence and I found myself switching back to a regular pair of EarPods for almost 70% of the songs because I felt the Sennheisers were just... lacking. Easiest way to explain it is basically these earphones will sound pretty nice with 70s/80s/90s songs playing in them with minimal production and mostly just straight up vocals , anything else just sounds... boring. 6/10 The Eq in the app is also terrible , forcing you to make really weird decisions by having the worst UI I’ve seen in a long time. 2/10 The biggest deal breaker for me was the volume level , the highest volume level they have is probably about 50% in almost every other ear buds you’ll try , Volume is VERY LOW - even while making phone calls in a restaurant- most of the time I just found myself asking the other person on the line to speak louder because I couldn’t hear anything. Microphone was ok, not good as the Airpods but definitely not bad. Battery - had no problem on that part - lasted me 4-5 hours every time without charging them. 7/10 Overall? Great brand which I love that came with a very mediocre product, that just feels very “rushed” and not perfected , Decided to return these and grab a pair of airpods 2 instead, Guess I’ll wait for version 2 and see if there are are improvements.

    I had a pair of Jabra Elite 65t true wireless earbuds, which I liked a lot, but lost them when traveling. I bought the Sennheisers to replace them because I've read reviews of their audio quality. I am very pleased with the audio on these headphones -- I had to experiment with some different tips, but once I found a size that fit really well, the sound from the Sennheisers is the best I've ever head in Bluetooth headphones. The sound is very detailed, with a good range. I listen to a wide variety of music, from rock and pop to classical and jazz, and the Sennheisers work well for all types of music, as well as listening to audiobooks and podcasts. They also work well for me when used for phone calls. The caller's voice is very clear, I get a good solid Bluetooth connection, and people at the other end report that my voice sounds clear and natural. What I don't like is that the earbuds are pretty buggy. I get very frustrated quite often when I try to answer my phone and call audio is still paired to the Sennheisers, even though they're in their charging case and in my pocket -- there are many times when the Bluetooth connection just don't end when you put the earbuds away. Also, the charging case has been a little challenging -- the Jabras would recharge the earbuds three times, the Sennheiser is supposed to do that twice, but there have been many times when I've only used the earbuds for maybe three or four hours since the last charge and the charging case is dead. This doesn't happen every time, but often enough that I always feel like I need to top off the charge much more frequently. I feel like these issues could be resolved with a firmware update, and if Sennheiser could fix those issues, I would give these a five-star rating. However, as good as the sound is, the bugs keep me from really loving them.

    Save your $300

    TL;DR: Too expensive for what they offer. Save your money. Details: Nothing stands out that other cheaper truly wireless earbuds don’t offer for much less. 1) Build - The earphones themselves have decent build quality but the capacitive touch surfaces don’t work well. And the cloth covered charging case plastic hinges squeak when opening and closing. The case doesn’t feel rugged at all, for a $300 product. I took one star off for the quality of the case and capacitive surface of the earphones. 2) Sound quality - Bose SoundSport Free and Jabra Elite have comparable sound stage (Bose actually has a wider sound stage). I actually found Sennheiser bass heavy out of the box. I took one star off for a $300 product as it didn’t wow me with its most important characteristic. 3) Functionality - Touch controls work, but it took me a long time getting used to finding the right spot; such issue never arose when working with Apple AirPods. Sennheiser touch controls feel erratic for a $300 product. I took one star off for this. 4) Fit - Admittedly, I have large ears and most earphones, including AirPods don’t fit. Only Bose and Jabra Elite Sport, with its hard foam supplies tips fit my ears very well. However, it’s inexcusable for Sennheiser to not include Comply grade foam tips in all sizes in the box. The included ones are the usual flimsy four sizes of silicon tips. Of course, none of the supplied tips fit me. Jabra’s foam tips came to the rescue. I am aware that Comply tips for $20 will solve my problem. But again, this is a $300 product. I took one more star off here. 5) Connectivity: No issues. Long range. Half a star awarded for nailing the basics in 2019. 6) Microphone: Decent quality when spoken through on a phone call. Most wireless earphones struggle with this because the microphone is too far away from the mouth. The beam forming microphones work fairly well for Sennheiser. I’m awarding half a star for this as well. Overall, my suggestion is to save $300 for another year or two before the next wave of “truer” wireless earphones is born.

    The best sounding true wireless headphones

    I’ve been holding out for a while on purchasing a pair of “true” wireless earbuds. I’ve been using the Bose SoundSport Wireless for a few years now, which are already pretty good wireless headphones, but they’re not “true” wireless. I purchased my Sennheiser Momentum’s from Sennheiser because BestBuy had them on backorded when they first came out. I have to say that I am very impressed by the sound quality as an audiophile. My favorite pair of wireless headphones to this date are my Bang and Olufsen Beoplay H7’s (which are around the ear headphones), and I have to say that these have a similar sound signature to those, which is very high praise for true wireless earbuds. The sound is very detailed and rich, and I love how you can change the sound profile in the app, much like the H7’s. They’re also one of the better looking true wireless earbuds in my opinion, not like those stupid toothbrushes everyone is wearing these days (AirPods). The case they come in is also very nice, and so far the battery life has been decent. My only complaint is the same issue others have been experiencing with the battery. It seems like the issue has gotten better the more I’ve used them, but sometime when you put the earbuds back into the case, they won’t automatically turn off and disconnect from your phone, causing them to be completely dead the next time you use them, but this can probably be fixed with a firmware update. Otherwise these are definitely the best true wireless earbuds on the market.

    Expensive But Worth It

    I've always been a Bose fanatic. I've known the Sennheiser brand but never looked in their direction. I've owned the Bose Soundsport Free's for the past couple of years. Liked the feel and the sound of the Soundsports but they started to have issues. I was going to get another pair when I came across the Sennheiser Momentums. I figured, let me do some research. Read all the positive reviews and youtube videos. The only thing that I hesitated about was that it was $100 more. So figured I'd give Sennheiser a chance. I have to say, I'm glad I did! The sound signature that the Sennheisers put out is amazing. Its not bass thumping like Beats but there is enough base there to make you feel it. You can actually hear other instruments that you can hardly hear with the Bose Soundsport Free's. The Bluetooth connection is flawless and when making calls, both earbuds can be used (unlike the Soundsport Free's you can only use one). Calls are mostly clear but you can hear just a little background noise but nothing bad. They are very comfortable in your ear and they are not loose if your using the right size earbuds. It uses touch controls vs buttons which is nice. Its not noice cancelling which would have been nice for the high price you pay but with the right fit of earbuds, the outside noise is practically blocked out when music is playing. There is a mode that allows the mics to pick up surrounding noise as you listen for safety or just want to hear whats going on around you. The app lets you customize the sound and found the app to be easy to use. Overall, I totally recommend these if you can afford them. If your going to spend $200 on wireless headphones, you might as well give these a look at.

    Good sound with some downsides

    I liked the sound of these earbuds and how well they passively blocked sound with the silicone tips. They had great sound, great range, and were comfortable enough for me to wear for long periods of time. The reason I'm giving these a 3 star rating is because despite the things I liked about them, there were some issues that I wasn't willing to accept in such an expensive pair of earbuds. I ended up returning them. Pros * Noise isolation * Sound quality * Range * USB C * Bluetooth 5 * Aptx Low Latency support Cons * I'd sometimes take them out of the case and find that both the earbuds and the case was dead. (I don't think they turn off until you put them in the case, and if the case is dead, maybe they don't turn off and eventually die?) * I had to in effect re-pair them every time I wanted to change which device I was using. I got used to this for the most part, but the most annoying part of it is sometimes I like to just use one earbud, but to pair to a different device you need to touch the sides of both earbuds. * The microphone was adequate but not great. I sometimes got complaints from people that they couldn't hear me well. * The audio pass through feature wasn't great or loud enough, and I don't think I was able to configure how loud the pass through was. * The case for the earbuds is a little big and was uncomfortable to leave in my pocket sometimes. * I don't like how shiny the outsides of the earbuds are. This wasn't a big deal, and I knew about it ahead of time, but I wish they were black.

    The earbuds are very comfortable for me to say the least, they sound better than my Bose Soundsports but aren't as loud. Transparent hearing does work although it doesnt seem useful for me. I still find myself taking out an earbud when someone speaks to me. The app required to tweak the EQ is what I do not like at all. Bluetooth connection to my S8 plus works just fine, but when you launch the app it never connects to the earbuds although they are connected to my phone. After a few attempts to "retry connection" via the app, a prompt comes up and asks you to turn on and off location services and it still doesnt work. I find that spamming the retry button eventually gets you connected. But, if you leave the app and come back to it, the connection is lost again. Its mildly annoying. One major issue that is bugging me is a crackling sound that I hear in my right earbud. It isn't a constant cracking but it only happens during certain times of a song, I guess at a certain frequency? I'm not sure but it's in everything I listen to. I'm disappointed, I really enjoy the design, comfort, and sound quality (minus the crackling). I'm considering a return and purchasing the M&D MW07s instead.

    I was so excited when my Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones arrived in the mail. I could not wait to try these out. I have a pair of blue tooth headphones I like to use when I work out or at work but they still have wires that get in the way and get tangled up. They also do not fall out when you work out! As you can see from this picture, I was getting super sweaty from the elliptical and doing burpees and planks! They stayed in the entire workout. No readjustment needed. One of my favorite features of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones  is when you take one ear bud out the headphones automatically pause - called smart pause. I also LOVE that it was super easy to connect the headphones via Bluetooth 5.0. The connection and sound is great. I would highly recommend these headphones for someone who loves to listen to music or podcasts and wants great sound without the hassle of cords or wires! These earphones are super comfortable as well so you can wear for hours on end without discomfort in your ears.

    After researching many of the wireless earbuds, I chose these. So I can hear nuances in music that I hadn't heard before even with some of my wired ones. The highs are crisp but not harsh. At first I was disappointed with the bass, but this is due to the lack of seal with the stock silicone tips. This is my one suggestion to Sennheiser and you and that is if you want a more secure fit and better bass, get the comply foam ear tips. They provide for a must better bass response and more secure fit. If I had any complaints it would be about the app that is suggested to download, which is not necessary but handy. The Equalizer works on a parabolic curve, and does not give you the opportunity to to an individual bands. This can be overcome by getting using a better music app such as power Amp. In reviews that I read the one complained that some people had was the fact that if you leave the ear buds without them being connected to the charging cord after a certain amount of time they will lose their charge. But at this time this hasn't been a problem for me but should be something to consider in the future you're going to be going long time without the ability to connect them. Other than that I have no complaints about these.

    The Real Deal

    After reading early trade reviews, I had been waiting for these to become available, and they did not disappoint. Sound quality is excellent--in fact comparable to my Sennheiser Momentum headphones. The MTW buds are very comfortable in my ears, and they are very stable; once set in my ears, they stay put and do not require a lot of readjustment to maintain sonic quality. I tried a pair of Comply tips as a substitute for the tips supplied by Sennheiser, but they did not offer any better performance than the stock issue. The companion app (iOS in my case) has a very slick equalizer that allows easy adjustments that make a real difference in the sound. I know that headphone and earbud ratings are very subjective, but I've found so far that the MTWs measure up to all Sennheiser's claims. One caveat: some reviews seem to imply that the MTWs are active noise cancellers. Maybe that was just my wishful thinking, but the fact is that while the MTWs allow you to boost the level of ambient sound, they do not have any active noise cancelling capability. I have not tried the MTWs on an airplane--the acid test for noise isolation/cancelling, so I don't yet know if they will substitute for my Bose (wired) QC earbuds.

    Too many issues for a $300 True wireless earbud

    I'm not a new comer to wireless earbuds or wireless headphones. I currently have the Jabra Elite Sport, Jabra 65t, and the Jlabs Jbuds air. While the Sennheiser MTW has the best sound quality out of all of them. There just to many quirks with it. First is with the touch controls. The right side touch controls would stop working 30 seconds or so after I took them out of the storage box. So I could not turn up the volume, turn on/off transparency mode, etc. I reset the earbuds multiple times but it would still happen. Second is transparency mode if you want to call it that. I couldn't tell a difference when it was on or off. Third was with the Sennheiser app sometimes the earbuds would be connected to my phone (as I was listening to music) but for some reason the app would not connect. You use the app for the EQ, and another way to turn on Transparency mode. And lastly when playing bass notes the left ear bud makes a metallic reverberation/noise at first I thought that the speaker was blown but after reading comments on the web I guess this is a flaw others are having as well. So to add it all up it is not worth the $300. Hopefully they can fix these issues with a firmware upgrade.

    Best True wireless headphone so far

    Tried also in comparison the Master and Dynamic 07(nice sound but no eq adjusting app and too low volume)the B&O E8 2.0 (Closest competition clear bass with interesting sound signature and separation in the highs and drum beats, sometime in highs on certain songs it has a very small distortion and can be a little sharp, also the app adjustments did not change sound much feels limited) the Sennheiser True wireless headphones feels louder with a nice soundstage strong clean natural bass with clear highs. The app is the best with a clever easy to adjust eq, eq settings saved to the EarPods, unlike the B&OE8 2.0s these really do adjust very well. Sound Quality and Powerful feel is over all the best in my opinion after extensive back and forth testing all the way until the batteries ran out on multiple occasions. Other headphones I have for reference Shure PTHE500 wired, Grado wired, Blue Mo-Fi, Isotunes Pro wireless (woodworking), Jaybird Tarha Pro (14 hour play time for extended listening)

    The best in ear TW headphones I’ve tried.

    My first thought was there’s no way I’m paying that much for these! But after reading other reviews I thought ok well maybe they’re worth it. I’m glad I didn’t go with my first thought! These are expensive but in my opinion they are worth it. The sound quality and clarity is outstanding for any size headphones I’ve ever tried. They are better sounding than my beats solo 3, my beats studio, and my AirPods. My only suggestion would be make sure you have a good fit in your ears. When I first tried them on even the large silicone tips didn’t really fit. The bass sound was really weak and the treble was way to much for my liking due to the fit. If the fit isn’t right you will be disappointed with the sound! I was ready to return them and try something different. Fortunately I had some larger silicone tips I decided to try from some other in ear buds and they created a perfect fit and totally changed the sound. Even with this small issue I still think they deserved 5 stars! I hope eventually Sennheiser will give you even more sizes for the silicone tips.

    Was disspomted when I first bought these. Comparing to Shure 846 wired and B & O e8 I was disappointed with getting the correct fit, which ensures bass response as well as sound isolation. The combination of bud sizes and shape of the earpiece wasn’t allowing the correct connection to my ear canal. On a whim I walked into an inmotion store at the airport and asked if hey had any ear tips that fit these. Was happy that a young knowledgeable sales associate said “try the comply tips”.... Oh My Word Radically different experience. Turned down the volume, neutralized the eq and I enjoyed the massive sound stage and separation. Balanced with a full low end and great clarity in the mids Highly recommend. My opinion? If there are sound issues it’s not the earpiece performance - it’s the earpiece fit - same with IEMs Sennheiser considering offering these foam comply tips as an earpiece option.... OBTW - the medium comply round tips fit in the charger....
