Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 TWS Earbuds Review

ByCandy Wang 2020-04-14 485

In 2018, the Momentum True Wireless, Sennheiser's first true wireless headset, officially opened the pace of Sennheiser's foray into the field of TWS earphones. Even though a large number of TWS true wireless headphones launched an impact on the high-end field, Sennheiser MOMENTUM's position as the head of true wireless has never been shaken. So, what progress has been made in the truly wireless ear of Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.0, which was released a year and a half later? Now let's unveil it.

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 Design

The biggest change in the appearance of the two-color blended new benchmark Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 is that it offers two colors. The original generation of light gray fabric charging boxes has been divided into light brown and dark gray shells, corresponding to white and black headphones respectively.


From a tactile point of view, Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.0 completely inherits the essence of the last generation, from the rechargeable shell to the headphone body appearance of the skin-like material is very delicate. The metal laser Sennheiser Logo outside the headset emphasizes the identity of the headset. Of course, the more facial Sennheiser design can attract a lot of attention whenever it is worn out.

 

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 Battery Life

This time, Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 has brought a lot of obvious changes. Among them, the size of the headset has been reduced by 2mm on the premise of maintaining the weight of about 6g, making it more comfortable to wear. At the same time, the battery life has been increased to 7 hours, nearly double the 4 hours of the first generation.

 

Not only that, the charging box can also add another 21 hours of battery life to headphones, with a maximum battery life of up to 28 hours. You know, the first Sennheiser MOMENTUM has only 12 hours of battery life, including the charging box. This means that even if you use it continuously, it's easy to stick to it all day. For more light users, being able to support nearly a week of battery life allows Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 not to think too much about charging.

 

In addition, the charging time of the headphones is also quite fast. The charging box can be filled in 1.5 hours, and the headphones can operate continuously for 1.5 hours in 10 minutes.

 

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 ANC

Another new feature of MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 is the active noise cancellation of headphones. Yes, on the premise of ear-in passive noise reduction, Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 also adds active noise reduction algorithms to help users filter out unnecessary background sounds to ensure a better listening experience.

 

Of course, it's not realistic to expect excessively good noise cancellation on small TWS headphones. Basically, Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 can filter out some background sounds, such as the wind, but background sounds such as the roar of airplanes and noisy streets can still be heard. In terms of noise reduction experience, the noise reduction level of Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 is about the same as that of AirPods Pro.

 

What’s more, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 does not delay headphones by adding active noise reduction. Whether watching videos or games on your mobile phone, the picture and sound can still be kept in sync. At the same time, the transparent listening function accompanied by active noise reduction also appears on this headset.

 

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 Sound Quality

In addition, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 is similar to the previous generation with a 7mm moving coil unit, a headset system with a 5Hz-21000Hz frequency response range and 107dB (1kHz/1mW) sound pressure level. The mid-range of the headphones is substantial and extensible enough, and the human voice is more likely to stand out from the staggered instruments.

 

The MOMENTUM wireless 2 headsets is upgraded to Bluetooth version 5.1, which supports A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, HFP specifications, and supports SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX Low Latency codecs. Of course, Qualcomm aptX series codecs usually need to be better supported on Android devices.

 

In terms of sound bias, Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 is the same as the first generation, it has a certain tendency of stress, but it will not encroach on the performance of intermediate frequency because of "verb words". For example, Taylor Swift "The Man" can find a good balance on the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2, the stress will not be on top, and Swift's human voice rhythm springs up.

 

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 Operation

Not only that, but the manipulation experience of Sennheiser MOMENTUM Wireless 2.0 is also very human. For example, the moment you take off the headphones, the mobile concert is suspended and the headphones go into standby. After wearing it again, the headset will turn on automatically, and the experience on the Android phone is the same as that of the iOS with the Airpods series.

 

You can wake up Google Assistant or Siri through the metal trackpad on your headphones. In fact, since the first generation of Sennheiser MOMENTUM true wireless headphones, touch functions have been added to the left and right metal panels to achieve different operations through gestures such as long-press, click, double click, triple-click and so on.

 

At the same time, Smart Control APP, which is responsible for training headphones, also provides rich touch functions to facilitate users to customize touch functions. After all, self-set touch functions are easier to remember than official mandatory fixed gestures.

 

Smart Control APP maintains the minimalist style of the revised Sennheiser software, from equalizer to Bluetooth management, the interface setting is very simple, and the user is as easy as ever. For example, in the equalizer, you only need to move the slider at will to automatically adjust the desired sound balance, without any professional tuning knowledge.

 

Summary

Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2, which defines high-end TWS, is consistent with the positioning of MOMENTUM, focusing on popular elements and rhythm, 7mm headphone unit performance is still a high level in the TWS camp, coupled with a more intelligent control experience, high sensitivity metal trackpad and up to 28 hours of battery life, Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.0 has made considerable progress while giving play to the advantages of the first generation.

 

More importantly, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless is itself a benchmark TWS headset, and it is still not easy for rivals to surpass it. Sennheiser MOMENTUM true wireless II is to raise the threshold of TWS high-end headphones a step further, and it is difficult to meet rivals in the choice of headphones in the same price range.
