    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.

    Almost perfect

    So far, so good. I own the Jabra Elite 65t as well, and both have a place in my stable. But for pure SQ, the Senns rule the roost. I am not someone who uses headphones for calls much, mainly for walking the dog, travel etc. I have not had the same issues some have had (metallic sound from one bud, dropouts, etc.), but I am not a big fan of the touch controls. Getting the hang, but prefer the Jabras on that front. Battery life makes them short term travel solutions, but for that I have the Sony M3 and Samsung Level On phones in my collection. Bottom line, I am a wireless convert (still have the Porta Pros for wired listening at home in a chair if I need it). An FYI, the Samsung Level On phones, which were a steal at $59, sound great wired too. The Sonys not so much. But I digress. I only rated the Senns a 4 because of the touch controls, but if that's not a deal breaker for you, then by all means buy them.

    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.

    Great Sound Quality, but spotty connection

    These would be a solid 5 stars, but I have a one major and one minor gripe. The major one is that the connection between the left and right earbuds become spotty when walking around a busy intersection. I commute everyday, and in a city like San Francisco, there is a lot of interference. This results in sound dropping off fairly often that it becomes annoying enough to take them out. The minor one is that these earbuds can be slippery enough that it can easily be dropped when attempting to take them out of the case. Since it slopes, taking them out requires some collective concentration or else you will drop them especially if your finger are oily! Otherwise, these are the best sounding wireless earbuds on the market and noise isolation is second to none! Enough to overcome the inconveniences.

    I wanted to try out wireless earphones for my workouts and for hikes. I shopped MANY brands and ended up with these because they have the best reviews for sound quality, and that’s important to me. I have been using these about three months now and overall I am very happy with them. They fit very snugly and the noise-cancelling works great. I also like the “transparency” option which allows some outside sounds to come through without getting in the way of the great sound. I only gave it 4 stars because of the limited time you get per charge. The holder is supposed to charge the earbuds at least 3 times but I have found it it’s only good for 2, and the second charge is not a full charge. I now charge after each use, to be sure these work for the 2-3 hours I need them.

    The best sounding true wireless earbuds so far. The touch controls take a little time getting use to but once you've got it down you learn to appreciate the controls. All the reviews you read about sound quality being superb is very true!! Any kind of music you listen to sounds awesome!! One thing I would of like to have seen is that the buds had some type of grip when pulling out of charging case,they tend to slip out of finger's. I can tell you my opinion about them and they are really awesome earbuds!! Ultimately you have to try them out yourself to know what the hype is all about!!! You won't regret it!! Like I said they are the best SO FAR!! Can't wait to see what's next!

    These earbuds have great sound quality and stay snug in your ears. The transparent feature is really nice to be able to hear conversations while listening to music, but it can be turned off if you want to cancel out sound. The equalizer is good, but I stick to the default setting. The battery was a concern of mine, but it lasts more than long enough for me and can be charged up relatively quick. The only drawback I've had is that once in a while these can be tricky to pair, but it works fine 90% of the time.

    These earbuds sound amazing. They're loud with great base. Even if you turn it all the way up they sound muffled. Call quality is good too. I have connection issues every now and then where they just don't pair to my android phone. Apple users don't seem to have this issue though. If you're looking for a pair of true wireless earbuds that you can use in the gym, spend the extra money and get these.

    Call Quality Not So Great

    So if your main focus is call quality, these are NOT for you, Sound quality for listening to music on the other hand they are great, but the microphone had several issue's for me as far as when I would use these for calls. Example, when I would talk, it sounded very muffled (Per the person on the other end of the call) In the end I went with the Jabra 65 Elite and so far so good....

    These sound better than anything I have used, but you can only use the right one on its own but you can't pause using the right one??? What kind of design is that, then you can't connect to 2 devices at once? You can do that with all its competitors. So I think it's a good start, but I really hope they can fix these with a software update

    These ear buds couldn't be a better fit. Literally, with 4 sizes of adaptors. Great sound for both music and calls, wire free. Having up to 12 hours of charging time thanks to the case means it's great for flights too. Definitely worth budgeting for.

    if you want great quality sound then ill recommend these.Some things I didn’t like is that when you take one off, it doesn’t always pause they keep playing.also, if you want to use only one of them, you can only use the right one not the left.

    Sound was excellent for headphones standards however the headphones itself does scratch my ears a bit all it needed was some small plastic setting to go around the buds & it would have been my ideal set of ear buds.

    These sound just as good if not better than the B&O e8's but they are not as comfortable as them. If you don't have them in just right then they can cause ear fatigue quickly.
