Review: Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 Earbuds

Sennheiser is a well-respected headphone and earbud maker, and I've used its wired headphones in the past. So I was happy for the opportunity to try the Momentum True Wireless 2 Earbuds ($299.95) when Sennheiser offered a review unit to test. The Momentum True Wireless earbuds deliver impressive sound thanks to the built-in equalizer and are still remarkably small. Despite the size, they still manage to offer 7 hours of use and 28 total with the charging case.

Speaking of the charging case, it is quite attractive thanks to the fashionable fabric cover. It recharges via USB-C (USB-A to USB-C cable included along with different sized ear tips) which will appeal to iPad Pro and Android owners. Unlike Apple's AirPods and AirPods Pro, the Sennheiser Momentum 2 do not charge wirelessly via Qi, which is a surprise given the price. The built-in voice prompts made pairing easy and easily work with your phone's voice assistant with the earbuds' surface touch controls.
