Design & Comfort
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are provided with silicone ear tips in extra small, small, medium, and large sizes. Talking about the size of the earbuds, they are kind of bulky but the fit they provide is excellent.
One of the neat things about the Sennheiser Momentums is that they will stop playing music once pulled out of the ears and when put back, they will start playing music instantly.
Each earbud has magnets that allow it to easily snap into place inside its charging case. The charging case lid is also magnetic so that it stays closed.
These earbuds also do not hold back when it comes to looks. Each earbud is matte black with a silver touch-sensitive surface that also has the Sennheiser branding.
And, just like the earbuds, the charging case is also a combination of black and silver. The outside of it is covered with a silver fabric while the Sennheiser branding can be seen both inside and outside the lid of the charging case.
Right behind the charging case is the USB Type C port to charge the case along with an LED to indicate battery life. The LED light turns yellow when the case is charging, green to show that the case is 100% fully charged, and red when there is 0% charge left.
Additionally, a button is also located there, which is to be used to find out the power status of the earbuds and the case.
With the Momentum earbuds, you get about 4 hours of playtime with one charge. The handy charging case increases it to a full 12 hours of use by providing the earbuds with an additional 2 charges.
The sound quality does not disappoint. The bass is super punchy, while the high and mids have a lot of clarity. An overall, balanced sound profile.
You can also download the Sennheiser Smart Control app on your smartphone. You can find this app on the Apple store and Google Play Store. It features an Equalizer so you can play around with it and adjust the sound quality as you desired.
The Sennheiser Momentum earbuds feature two microphones to enable you to make voice calls. Phone calls are adequately clear and being heard is not an issue. However, the microphone does pick up a bit of sound if the surroundings are too noisy.
The pairing process is simple. Once your device’s Bluetooth is on, you need to put the earbuds on and tap and hold the touch surface for about 5 seconds. After you hear the word “Pairing”, just choose “ MOMENTUM TW” on your device and your earbuds will be paired.
Featuring Bluetooth 5.0, these wireless earbuds can be used in mono mode. Except, you can use only the right earbud independently.
The connection is also quite stable and there is no lag between audio and video when used for watching Netflix or YouTube.
