Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 – test

The second generation of wireless headphones from the German company is intended to compete with Apple AirPods and the proposal from Sony. How does the Momentum True Wireless 2 perform in practice?

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is another approach of the German manufacturer to the topic of wireless headphones. After releasing a very good first generation of the accessory, Sennheiser decided to go a step further and expand its headphones. With the Momentum True Wireless 2, we can experience additional active ambient noise cancellation and a slightly revised design.

Construction and build quality

At first glance, the Momentum True Wireless 2 isn’t that different from its predecessor. But at first glance, the Momentum True Wireless 2 isn’t all that different from its predecessor, but at first glance, the headphones are a bit smaller, which means they’re more comfortable to use-but more on that later. The whole thing was done in a black and silver color scheme.

With the set, the manufacturer includes an aesthetic box in gray – which is also an additional battery that allows you to recharge the headphones.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 look very solid and the quality of workmanship can not be complained about. Pleased with the fact that the manufacturer has retained the touch panel on the left earpiece that allows you to quickly control audio playback and additional actions.

Comfort of use

The first-generation Momentum True Wireless headphones caused a mild earache during extended listening sessions. With the second generation, that problem is essentially eliminated-all thanks to the headphones’ slimmer design, which doesn’t pinch your ears. A three-hour train ride was no obstacle at all. The comfort of the Momentum True Wireless 2 is definitely a plus, and it’s also a significant improvement over the previous generation of these headphones. Way to go Sennheiser.

Sound quality

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 sound just like the PXC 550 and PXC 550 II in-ear versions from the same manufacturer. There are really not many differences. Once again, there’s good holography and soundstaging, as well as solid separation between levels. Treble, bass, and mids don’t get in the way, but I’m guessing that users who like a little more bass might not like these headphones. On the factory settings, the Momentum True Wireless 2 produce a very pleasant, meaty sound, but it lacks punch. It all depends on the song. There’s plenty of bass, but it’s not a bass that’s dark and overpowering to other frequencies. This situation can be solved by using Sennheiser’s smartphone app, with its built-in equalizer, and adjusting the sound to suit your needs. In the previous generation of headphones I increased the bass digitally, in these I no longer had such a need. However, it is worth knowing that such an option is actually available.

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 are the ultimate “entertainment” headphones. They’re not meant to focus too much on details, but to entertain you. In this case, the accessory is suitable for most music genres, with a particular emphasis on electronic music. The Momentum True Wireless 2 can also handle rock, classical and jazz music – and quite well, especially the latter.

Phone calls on the headphones also went smoothly, with people understanding me without any problems.

ANC and battery

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 received active noise cancellation, compared to the previous generation. It works very similarly to that known from the manufacturer’s in-ear headphones. On the train ride, I was cut off from everything-even voice announcements-and on the street, the Momentum True Wireless 2’s ANC performs just as well. Of course, some noises or sounds such as human conversation can occasionally break through while listening to music, but that’s very rare. For a headphone of this size, Sennheiser has handled ANC very well. There is nothing to complain about. The technology works so that any average user will be satisfied.

ANC also affects the battery life of the headphones. While listening to music with noise cancellation enabled, they discharged in my ears after just over 4 hours. This is a pretty decent result. The case that the headphones are inserted into provides an additional 20 hours of music listening. The accessory itself charges quickly and practically only after a train trip did I encounter a situation where the headphones actually discharged during use.

Depending on the intensity of use, charging the case with the headphones inside once a week should be completely sufficient.

Is it worth it?

Headphones Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is a very solid item in the portfolio of the German manufacturer – the brand has shown that it can confidently compete with Sony and Apple in the market for “truly” wireless headphones. The biggest problem associated with the model I tested is its price: it is simply too high in relation to the competition, which will certainly scare away potential customers – we’re talking about 1299 PLN.

But if the Momentum True Wireless’ second-generation price drops over time, it’s a safe bet. For once again, Sennheiser has succeeded in creating a product tailored to the needs of consumers looking for something more than just an average music set.
