This time at IFA 2018, Sennheiser – a company we are no strangers to joins the True Wireless Earbuds bandwagon with their Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. This is the company’s first True Wireless earphones.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
As we are familiar with Sennheiser’s work, they emphasize primarily on audio quality. The Momentum series are also known for its good comfort and style. With that said, the Momentum True Wireless is no exception. It comes in this rectangular case with a fabric finish on the outside and keeps the earbuds safe inside. These earphones are splash and sweat resistant – making it a good companion for workout.
Let’s talk about the sound quality that these tiny little earphones have to offer. Each of the drivers are equipped with a 7mm Audiophile grade dynamic drivers that offers stereo sound performance. Adding on to that, it is equipped with the latest Bluetooth, AAC support and Qualcomm aptX support. What makes these earphones stand out are the features that it has to offer. These Momentum True Wireless has a feature called Transparent Hearing – which gives the listeners to blend their music with the ambient sound around them. This is to create a situational awareness around you. We have seen this feature available on Sony Headphones and it’s good to see that the Momentum has it as well.
As for connectivity, the Momentum True Wireless works like a charm with both Android and iOS. In fact, the one tap AI Access will allow you to launch Google Assistant or Siri just like that. The two-mic-beamforming technology allows you to perform a voice call and have crystal-clear phone call quality. One thing that got me excited, is the capability to customize the built-in EQ with the help of their Smart Control app.
Finally, one of the most important aspect – the Battery life. The Earbuds carry a 4-hour worth of battery on each earpiece and the case acts as a power bank – with 12 hours’ worth of battery life. To charge, it uses a USB-C port on the back to juice both the case and the earbuds together.
Pricing and Availability
The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless will be available starting from mid-November in the European region for 299 EUR. That’s like roughly RM 1400+ here in Malaysia. The thing is, we are quite not sure whether it would hit the Malaysian stores but if it really does, you’ll hear about it first from us. 😊
