The true wireless in-ear headphones, or earbuds, market is flooded with so many different brands and models that you might not be able to differentiate one from the other.
But you might probably heard about the Sennheiser brand or even familiar with its iconic logo that adorns the headphones worn by famous singers and artistes. It is not surprising though, as Sennheiser has been around for more than 75 years delivering innovative sound technologies since its founding in 1945.
The German audio specialist has achieved many audio technological milestones including the first directional microphone in the 1950s, the open headphone in the 1960s, infra-red transmission technology in the 1970s and multi-channel cordless transmission in the 1980s. Well, you get the idea.
So, if you researching which true wireless earbuds to get, you might to start with Sennheiser. And your search might end with its flagship MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.
AUDIOPHILE-LIKE SOUND QUALITY
With its audio expertises, Sennheiser has imbued the MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 (MTW2) with its very own bespoke 7mm dynamic drivers.
These drivers are inherited from Sennheiser’s audiophile in-ear monitors IE 800. As such, the MTW2 delivers stereo sound with deep bass, natural mids, and clear detailed highs.
In other words, the MTW2 offers a finely-tuned and balanced soundscape that is unparalleled compared to other true wireless earbuds. You will be able to clearly hear the different instruments playing; whether the drums or cello in classic music, or from the electric guitar to the electronic keyboard in pop music.
Regardless of the music genre, the MTW2’s audio delivery will keep you in awe that you probably do not want to remove the earbuds from your ears.
SUPERB ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION
In this Covid-19 pandemic era, inner peace is probably something you treasure more than ever before.
Whether you are working from home and in office or constantly switching between the two work modes, MTW2’s active noise cancellation (ANC) technology will help to filter the constant renovations of your neighbours or incessant talking of your colleagues.
It works by having a single ANC microphone on each earbud to listen for noise and producing audio counter-signatures to cancel them out.
Furthermore, the design of MTW2 with its comfortable silicone ear-tips allows for excellent passive noise isolation. Combined with its ANC technology, you can enjoy some much needed peace and quiet even in noisy environment while listening to high-fidelity sound.
GREAT USER EXPERIENCE
Being equipped with great audio technology will be wasted if the user experience is not top-notch and customisable. Sennheiser understands this notion very well and offers the Sennheiser Smart Control app (available on Android and iOS) that lets you tailor the listening experience based on your preferences.
Apart from customising gesture controls to your liking, the app also lets you change the equaliser settings to suit the kind of music you are listening.
For instance, you might opt for the popular “V-shaped” equaliser setting for your pop music. Or you can drag the sliders in the Sennheiser Smart Control app to fine tune the bass and treble to the exact point you like and save it as a profile to use later.
Not to mention, the app allows for the activation of the High-End Sound Tuning mode. As mentioned earlier, the MTW2 inherited IE 800’s 7mm drivers and this mode digitally recreates IE 800’s resonator chambers for cleaner treble reproduction.
As a result, the High-End Sound Tuning mode strikes a more delicate balance between punchy bass and clear mids for a more dynamic listening experience with more life-like vocals. In short, you will be getting audiophile-standard sound quality in a true wireless earbuds.
And with its 7-hour battery life, which can be extended to 28 hours with the charging case, you get to experience true wireless freedom for the entire day with the MTW2.
