If the last headphones you bought were called ‘Walkman’ it’s time to talk.
Headphones today are a very different beast from what they were even three or four years ago. For starters, the headphone world is moving to truly wireless; headphones that don’t have any wires whatsoever. While early versions a few years ago were known for finicky connectivity and dropouts, mediocre sound quality, plus battery life that could be measured in minutes, not hours, a lot of folks were understandably wary of diving in.
Today, truly wireless headphones are durable, comfortable, they have reliable connectivity, and with batteries that last longer than ever. Case in point; the new truly wireless offering from Sennheiser. MOMENTUM True Wireless are premium truly wireless headphones that promise “uncompromised sound performance, state-of-the-art technology and refined design”. Do they deliver on those promises? I had a chance to test a pair out for a few weeks to find out.

Features of Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless
Sennheiser Smart Control App
The first time you use the app, it will search for nearby devices. The app found my headphones quickly and connected easily. The app also does a few other things, like lets you adjust audio and EQ settings, turn ambient Transparent Hearing mode on or off and show you the battery level.
Sometimes I found the app didn’t recognize the Sennheiser Momentum headphones. I had them out, in my ears and playing music sometimes, and the app was still searching for them so I’d need to close and reopen the app.
You can do a lot with these buds just by touching them. The hardest part is remembering which tap sequence does what. This review of Sennheiser Momentum was written for Best Buy Canada’s blog. To keep reading it, please support the work I do with them by clicking here.
