If you’re looking for a pair of wireless earbuds that look classy while delivering some top-shelf sound, you’ll find Sennheiser’s exquisitely hewn Momentum True Wireless earbuds something to look forward to as they not only look fetching but sound good in the bargain.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds come in a feather-light, fabric-covered pillbox shaped charging case that’s gently curved to ensure it easily slides in and out of pockets with each earbud nestled within a form-fitted cutout within the case. Each earbud has its own built-in battery that allows it a good 4 hours of listening time with the charging case offering an additional 8 hours of battery life, equivalent to two extra charges, for a grand total of 12 hours of music in the field which is plenty for a day out.
Befitting Sennheiser’s lavish attention to authentic sound, each earbud is fitted with a 7mm dynamic driver for superior audio reproduction, supports the apt-X low latency codec, packs Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and has ergonomically optimised soft silicone eartips for comfort during extended wear.
Each earbud is also emblazoned with Sennheiser’s distinctive logo and doubles as a touch control surface to control music playback as well as enable users to make and take calls with a simple tap of the controls. The earbuds are also rated IPX4 so that they’re effectively splashproof which makes them taking them out on a jog outdoors a very viable option.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless also adds in an additional perk in that you’re able to tweak how it sounds to your exact specifications via the Smart Control app that’s free for download on iOS or Android phones. Via the app, you’re able to tweak your equaliser settings at will and also adjust how much external ambient noise you want to hear when using your earbuds which makes it handy when you’re using it outdoors and attempting to navigate traffic.
Unboxing the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
We were certainly chuffed after hearing about Sennheiser’s wireless earbuds and that they are already available in Malaysia. Our test unit came shrink wrapped in a solid cardboard box. Sliding it open revealed the fabric-wrapped charging case ensconced in a foam cutout along with its two attendant earbuds.
Wrapping the charging case in fabric makes the Momentum True Wireless offer a different, more tactile feel indeed compared to its competitors and holding it reveals its polish and the attention to quality that they’ve lavished on it as it feels both light and sturdy in equal measure. Flip it open and you’ll appreciate its gold tipped charging points on the both the earbuds and the charging case too.
Each earbud is also built to the same high standards of quality and has a remarkably tactile touch surface embellished in polished chrome with Sennheiser’s logo prominently emblazoned on the top. In case the provided silicone eartips don’t quite fit, Sennheiser has also included several others differently sized ones in the package so you’ll likely find out that suits you and which offers a better seal.
We managed to get it up and running, pairing it with our Android phone after downloading the attendant Smart Control app in a matter of minutes and a cursory listen to our favourite tracks yielded fantastic results with the likes of Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing’ and its orchestra-laden finale sounding sublime and the titular ‘Hotel California’ by the Eagles sounded luscious with a wide soundstage and great detail.
We’ll tell you more when we put it through its paces. For now, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless is available in Malaysia for RM1,498 at all authorised retailers including the Sennheiser official store at KLCC mall. For more details swing by their official Facebook page in Malaysia here.
