Every year, I look forward to April 1st. For it’s April Fools’ Day, a joyous time where I can say sarcastic, cryptic things all day and everyone will think it’s funny! But this year, with the release of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, I’ll have not one but two things to be excited about this April Fools’ Day.
For a while, the Momentum True Wireless has been one of the top dogs when it comes to true-wireless earbuds, and the Momentum True Wireless 2 makes dramatic improvements to ergonomics and functionality while presumably retaining the same excellent sound quality.
Battery life is up by almost 50% – while the original Momentum TW offered 4 hours of playback on a single charge, the Momentum TW 2 offers 7. The charging case’s capacity is also significantly higher, offering 21 additional hours of playback for 28 hours total. Compared to the original Momentum TW’s 12 hours, that’s a very significant improvement indeed!
The Momentum TW 2 also adds Active Noise Cancellation into the mix, making it an even better choice for public transportation.
We haven’t yet had a chance to listen to these at MajorHifi, but rest assured that when we do we’ll give you the lowdown on exactly how they sound. Identical distortion and sensitivity specs indicate that they probably share the same 7mm drivers, but the sound may be somewhat modified by the inclusion of ANC.
As usual, the Momentum TW 2 also features a nice touchpad on the faceplate, so making adjustments to your listening while on the go will be easy. And it uses Sennheiser’s equalizer, allowing you to change its sound signature easily.
And keep an eye out for our review – we hope to get a unit into our offices soon enough.
Stay safe, everybody!
