Sennheiser introduced its true wireless earbuds for the first time one and a half years ago. This year Sennheiser is coming back with Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds having some major and minor improvements. It is needless to say that the new MTW earbuds have better battery life than their previous version.

They also have noise cancellation features that will help you to enjoy your favourite music anytime, anywhere without any disturbance. These earphones are now available in the US and Europe.

Sturdy and durable

Alike the previous version these true wireless earbuds are also available in a fabric-covered case that is rigid and durable enough for heavy usage. This chunky case opens and closes with a nice snap. Overall, these cases have a premium, high – standard look. Not only the cases but the earbuds also are designed with high-quality solid and durable materials so that they are actually convenient for prolonged usage. Since these are one of the most expensive among true wireless earphones, Sennheiser will never compromise with their quality and crafting.

Easy Charging

Charging was a big issue for any other wireless earphones. But the new pair of these wireless earbuds have a USB-C charging facility that makes them truly wireless. That means you do not need to carry a charging cable when you need to charge them. You can easily charge these earbuds with your regular laptop and mobile phone chargers.

Noise cancellation

The Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds support noise cancellation which is the greatest strength of these truly wireless earbuds. Unlike Apple’s Airpods these earphones can reduce all the unnecessary sounds around you and easily make the environment quiet. Whether you are in a crowded train or a busy office, you can easily isolate yourself from the noisy surrounding with these useful features of these earphones.

Pairing and connection

If you exactly know how and where to touch it is actually very easy to pair, otherwise it may seem a little complicated. You need to long-press both the touchpads to turn on the pairing mode. Another best thing is when you open up the fresh earphones, they will be automatically in pairing mode. Tap the left pad once to play/pause music. You need to tap the right pad to get connected with the Voice Assistant of your mobile phone. Tap twice the left pad for advancing a track and if you want to go back you will need to tap three times. Hold the left pad to turn down the volume while holding the right pad helps to turn up. If you want to answer an incoming call, just tap the right bud.  

What do we like?

Comfortable to use

This new version of true wireless earbuds by Sennheiser provides more comfort than the first-generation version. These earbuds are made up of standard quality plastic and have a very good fit so that they do not fall out from your ears easily. Moreover, these earphones do not have any sharp points and in spite of their simple design, they can be stable to your ears without any feeling of discomfort. Overall, these earbuds are comfortable enough for long periods of listening.

Battery life

In Sennheiser’s first pair of wireless earphones, battery life was the biggest issue. But in these new earphones, it is claimed that all the battery life issues have been improved to a great extent. You will be impressed to know that you will get up seven hours of playback from these earphones which were up from four hours. In the case of this, it gets you 28-hours which is up from 12. There is also a new Bluetooth chip to prevent any type of power drain possibilities.

Sound quality

As before these true wireless earbuds have great sound quality. Since they support the noise cancellation features, they can reduce all the noise around you for better listening. Along with the noise cancellation mode, they have the audio pass-through mode and you can just listen to right earbud at a time. Just like the old version these earphones also ensure no distortion or exaggeration in Bass sound. Besides that, the treble is not spiky and the mid-range is quite smooth. Therefore, you can enjoy listening to any type of genre without any discomfort. 

Call audio

Call audio quality is also great in these Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds of Sennheiser. The microphone attached to the earphones actually provides clear sounds to the other side. According to the call audio performance they are so far the best wireless earphones, undoubtedly.

What we don’t like?

Always carry the case

It is a little difficult to go somewhere without the cases. The cases provide you two extra full charges for the earbuds. So, when the earphones become switched off automatically you need them to put back into the case to wake them up again. 

Earbud size

These true wireless earbuds are 2 mm smaller than the previous version. However, some people find them big enough compared to their ears. 


Starting from battery life to noise cancellation features, Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds have become improved in every aspect. Initially, they supported only Bluetooth 5 but now it is upgraded to Bluetooth 5.1. These earphones also claim to support AAC and AptX standards. They also have an IPX4 water-resistant rating. So, if you are really fond of true wireless earphones you must try out these. They will worth your money.
