If you prefer seamless integration with Apple devices and access to features like convenient ear detection and wireless charging, the Apple Airpods Pro 2 would be a great choice. They also offer a "Low Latency Mode" which could enhance your experience during gaming and watching TV. On the other hand, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 provides a more customizable listening experience through its app equalizer and controls customization. Sennheisers are generally praised for their sound quality, but they lack the low latency mode, which might be noticeable during gaming or when watching videos. The Apple option might suit a more casual, on-the-go and tech-integrated lifestyle, while the Sennheisers appeal to those who prioritize sound customization and traditional audio brand reputation. Both have active noise cancelling and are similarly comfortable and portable, ultimately making your choice dependent on specific features and device ecosystem preferences. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Lily Katz | May 2023
"Apple's upgraded H2 chip begets better active noise canceling (ANC) and battery life, while the case's U1 chip and integrated speaker lets you precisely locate it from the Find My app. If you own an iPhone, the new AirPods Pro is an obvious choice."

What HiFi?

What HiFi? | November 2022
"They are more comfortable and nicer to use than their predecessors, battery life is better and noise-cancelling is now included as part of the package. They’re easy to live with and you could happily listen to them for hours on end without reaching for the pause button. If your budget allows, your ears will be handsomely rewarded."
