If enjoying music with the flexibility for calls and meetings is your main focus, the Audio Technica ATH-TWX7 would be better suited due to its excellent ratings in those categories. However, if active noise canceling is crucial for your use during air travel, both options are equipped with this feature, but the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is lighter, which might be more comfortable for long periods. For gaming and watching TV, the ATH-TWX7 with its low latency mode outperforms the Sennheiser. On the other hand, Sennheiser's battery life is slightly better but lacks wireless charging, unlike the ATH-TWX7. Both earbuds offer customization through their respective apps and are optimized for Android and Apple, but the Sennheiser has an edge with its ear/head detection feature. If you value a durable design and slightly longer battery life in the charging case, Sennheiser is the choice, but for overall versatility, and especially if gaming or watching videos is a priority, the Audio Technica would be preferable. Additionally, the Audio Technica supports LDAC for high-quality audio over Bluetooth, which the Sennheiser does not. Give Feedback

Engadget

Billy Steele | January 2024
"There’s plenty to like about the ATH-TWX7. A robust set of features brings a lot of convenience to your day. But a few of those tools could still use some fine-tuning and the lack of automatic pausing in 2024 is a head scratcher. Still, the audio is mostly good, and transparency mode is better than most. Add in the solid call quality and the in-app voice test and the ATH-TWX7 are a worthy consideration, especially at this price. Too bad it falls short of being a more complete package some of the competition offers for a slightly larger investment."

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."
