The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds ship in April for $300. The buds' batteries would drain while in the case, so if you didn't charge the case for four days, you could end up with a dead set of earbud. Like the originals, these have touch controls and they work well.

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 are among the few TWS headphones that also support the high-resolution aptX audio codec. They feature active noise cancellation (ANC) and a transparent hearing function, which uses the outside microphones to direct ambient noise directly into the ear. Transparent Hearing can easily be switched on or off with a simple double tap on the right earphone.

The original Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless buds were stylish in design, came with smart controls and boasted impressive sound. The latest upgrade from the German audio company does not disappoint either. It adds active noise cancellation, improved battery life and even better sound quality to an already great pair of buds. While they might not be the best choice if you're after a pair of earbuds to use in the gym or out on a run, they're perfect for just about everything else.

The $300 Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 (MTW2) are the company's second true wireless earbuds. They feature noise-canceling and improved battery life, and are easy to control. But their default touch controls are a chore, and you'll have to download an app to customize the controls.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is a pair of wireless buds that both succeeds at impressing and fails to surprise. This is one mighty pricey set of buds, even next to Apple's AirPods Pro. But there's enough in the way of rich sound quality and advanced features that it's a worthwhile investment. In fact, the True wireless 2 earns a spot on our best wireless earbuds list.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 are the distinguished audio brand's second true wireless set. The design is more ergonomic, battery life is longer, and ANC is available. The 7mm drivers deliver a rich, textured and lush performance that's easy on the ears and never overcooked. They're not an attacking pair, but like the best wireless earbuds pairs, you could listen to them for hours on end.

Reviewers from whathifi have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 headphones are the company's second stab at the true wireless earbuds market. The original version arrived at the back end of 2018, delivering a balanced sound, a decent smattering of features and good battery life. The big news is the addition of active noise-cancelling. The buds should be good for around seven hours from a single charge as standard (compared to four on their predecessors), although having the noise-Cancelling feature switched on drains the battery quicker.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable fit
  • Good battery life
  • Active noise-cancelling
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
