The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds offer a closed enclosure design with active noise cancelling, making them suitable for noise isolation in various environments like air travel. They have a midrange price and are optimized for both Android and Apple devices, featuring app controls customization, equalizer, and audio controls to tailor your listening experience. The build quality is rated very good, and they are sweatproof certified which can be useful during exercise. However, they may not be the best choice for gaming or watching TV due to poor latency performance. Their battery life provides approximately 5.5 hours of typical use, with an additional 28 hours from the charging case, but they lack wireless charging capabilities. Overall, these earbuds are built to deliver good comfort and sound quality for music and calls in a portable design, especially for users who prioritize noise isolation and build quality.

Ratings by Category

Air Travel:
4.4
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Podcasts & Audiobooks:
4.2
This score evaluates the product when used solely to listen to podcasts or audiobooks. It takes into account sound quality and sound signature, to be able to keep voices clear and intelligible. It also considers battery life, when available, and comfort.
Battery Life:
4.1
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Exercise:
4.0
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
Calls:
3.3
This evaluates the product when used solely to make and receive calls. It takes into account how well the products are able to clearly reproduce the human voice, the quality of the integrated microphones and the battery life, when available, to be able to use them for longer sessions or conferences.
Portability:
3.3
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Music:
3.0
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is considered fair for listening to music partly because its overall sound quality is judged to be just satisfactory, which may not appeal to everyone seeking high-fidelity audio. Additionally, despite having a good score for soundstage and imaging—contributing to a more immersive and well-defined placement of instruments and vocals—they lack support for lossless codecs, meaning they can't wirelessly transmit the highest quality audio without some compression.

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."
