    Sound is stunning. Fit is perfect. Look it simple and attractive. Touch features work well and convenient. I have been using Jabra Elite Active 65t but the sound, fit, look of the Sennheiser is much better and appreciate the simple touch controls of the Sennheiser vs. Jabra Elite Active 65t. Jabra Elite Active 65t are also a great set of earbuds and if you dont have the money to spend $300 on Sennheiser then Jabra Elite Active 65t is a perfect choice that works well no complaints from me. Sennheiser is just better in every way and if money is not object and if you want the best look no further than Sennheiser. I am still stunned at how well these sound just amazing Sennheiser crushed it in that department and fit for gym that I go to every day for couple of hours has been perfect - very secure no fallouts

    These ear buds sound beautiful, but need charging almost every other time wearing them. I don't know if it's the software or charging case.

    I really love these headphones. Sennheiser makes awesome audio products. These look better than airpods in my opinion, they are light, stylish, and more importantly have amazing sound quality, USB C and the cool case are the icing on the cake.

    These come with a high price tag but definitely have the best sound on the market. Good overall design, but a little big. I assume that's necessary to not compromise the audio quality though

    The clarity and sound for the price is good! I love how clear the audio is. The product is stylish and looks nice. The pass-through audio works well and the app for customizing the sound is a key feature of the product.

    I tried Bose true wireless and jabra elite active and these are 10x better in so many ways. Amazing sound quality, in ear comfort, controls, look while wearing and again, awesome sound. Yes they are a little pricier but worth every penny. Buy them now and you will not regret.

    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.

    One of the things the MOMENTUM line has been known for its quality products. That quality doesn't just focus on the sound, it's the overall design of the products in this line. The first thing you won'tice with these earbuds is the polished metallic spin ring with the Sennheiser logo. The charging case is covered in a tough cloth that makes it feel premium. There are multiple different ear tips that come in four different sizes so you can find the right one that works for you. But most importantly, these earbuds are lightweight and slim, making them easier to use regularly. What you won't see is the 4-hour battery life, the zero sacrifice mentality when it comes to sound and the Smart Control features that make these true wireless earbuds top contenders.

    These headphones give you detail that other wireless headphones can't capture. The default bass is smooth and deep. @@@@@@@@ Add the bass boost equalizer in Spotify if you love even more bass... & they still will not distort at full volume as well as having a little higher ceiling volume. @@@@@@@ The mid's and highs are louder, more present, and clearer than my old Powerbeats 2 headphones. The Beats were alright but I've always missed the detail that my wired Senheiser's had. I wore them for over 4 hours straight, and they were surprisingly comfortable as my ears are sensitive to some in-ear headphones. I do highly recommend these.

    Takes Wireless Earbud Technology to New Levels

    When I unboxed my Sennheiser earbuds, the first thing I noticed was how sharp they were. The earbud's silver and black color scheme is clean and crisp, and the case - which doubles as a mobile charging dock - features a fabric-like, slate gray finish with black accents for a truly striking look. That being said, we all know looks aren't everything so what else did these earbuds have to offer? Unlike many earbuds that have a tinny sound, these earbuds have a nice, round bass to them that adds the depth and body that we all love to hear in our music. It also provides excellent sound when viewing television and movies. I was thoroughly pleased with how well these earbuds translated the audio of some of my favorite movies right into my ear canal. They provided me a nice audio range with no latency, which is key when watching movies. Even while viewing Infinity War, I never had an issue with sound clarity, depth, lag, or stuttering.

    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've 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'd 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'sn't 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.

    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 don't 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 don't have any active noise cancelling capability. I've 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.

    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've 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've 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.

    They are so pretty. I almost did not want to try them on because I just knew I would lose them in the first day and then I would feel so foolish when I went to review them. But I tried them and they fit so well in my ears! They just fit well. They have four sizes but the size they came with just fit so well in my ears and did not move around or anything. And I wore them making dinner, walking the dog, and writing up a post just to see if they made me uncomfortable or started losing power early. They were super great with?up to 4 hours of listening per charge with 2 additional charges from the case. Plus they have a great carrying case which fits down in your purse, pocket, or bag. Again with just being stylish too. The audio quality is good. They are very 'cool' too so I hear from my teenager who immediately tried to grab them from me.

    I brought these buds for listening calls, music and movies. This is the only wireless earbuds which got connected to my Samsung HDR TV without any fuss. I did return Bose, Beats and even Corsair gaming one just they were not able to be connected despite my TV is latest 1 year old and latest in the line of UHD. Case is nice and not very big like bose to carry around but I would love the size of airpods. Anyway, this earbuds are far better to any in the class and I loved the music and movie on them. I thought that money well spent and finally my search over but I was wrong. I couldn't even complete 1 movie with them on and my ear started paining. I tried changing buds from medium to Small or Large but didn't help. Your sound isolation depends on the earcaps size and they will not be secure. Also being overall metal finish, handling is bit tricky. I would suggest to try on these before you make a final purchase. I am still thinking to return them but going to try another 1 week.

    I'm pretty much a love-hate person when it comes to reviews. I don't bother if I'm just feeling mediocre. I either love you or hate you and I LOVED these! Here's what you need to know: These sound A-MAZ-ING. BASS for DAYS! They are great for travel and for listening to around your home. You could wear them to work and they would be totally hidden if you have longer hair! CAN YOU SAY WORK TUNES? YASSS You'd be ok walking on the treadmill or spinning with these. For vigorous running I might leave these at home. If you take calls these are also awesome for that. Great mics even in a noisy situation. They last for about 4 hours and then the case will charge them twice. I also love the case because its not to small and not too big. It's just right! Convenient and light while still being able to easily be found in my bag. They are well designed and stylish. I adore the look of them in my ears. Get these if you expect awesomeness and love a premium brand.

    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 haven'ticed 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'd 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'd 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 haven'ticed 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'd 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.

    Painful, Mediocre, and Random Popping..?

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    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're 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's 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's. 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.
