" ...  I find the sound quality of the Sennheiser Momentum's to be exceptional and better than that of the competition (that I own). ... Although they're expensive they are the best pair I own while listening to music. ... Overall though they are a solid product and sound fantastic! ... If sound quality is of importance and you could afford the price I recommend them.  ...  "

" ...  Hands down the best true wireless earbuds on the market, I also have the B&O E8 2.0 and these are better than them.  ...  "
comment
" ...  These would have the advantage over those as being way more comfortable, and way more subtle, likely with better sound . ... And it sounds very natural, like you're not even wearing earbuds. ... The sound quality blows away what my over-ear Shure headphones can do, the difference is absolutely noticeable. ... I really love these earbuds and I'm so glad I pulled the trigger on them.  ...  "

comment
" ...  But, I did not necessarily notice during my 48 hour hands on but after a few more days of experience it is clear that these earbuds DO NOT offer true "lag-free audio." ... The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds are on the slightly bulky side, but are light weight and fit snugly in each ear.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The battery life on these earbuds are not 4+ hours, but more like 2 hours. ... Since the majority of controls are on the left earbud, the battery on the left one drains faster than the right.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Very disappointing, the battery life is a joke. ... The moment the earbuds are removed from the case the battery indicator drops to 97%.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Here's where other users may benefit for this battery tidbit as I wish I knew. ... I haven't used (or kept it plugged into a charger) the Senns in 6 days and when I put it on, the battery for both buds were under 40% (left bud at 15%). ... The battery will go into "Trickle charge" to keep it topped off. ... I wish I knew this before my train ride as my battery died. ... Wish there was a longer hibernation/standby life cycle. ... Starting with a fully charged case and headphone, it should take 7 days of standby time for the case and earbuds to completely drain. ... 9- Leave the headphones undisturbed for 48 hours.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It would charge to 100 percent but would drain rapidly. ... With both charged to 100 percent and equal use left would drain down to 10 percent while the right still had 70 percent.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I have to charge the buds in the case before using them - which makes the buds essentially unusable when you want to use them.  ...  "
comment
" ...  If I put the earbuds back in the case then take them back out at least 30 minutes later they will refuse to connect to my phone unless I unpair and then repair them which usually takes over 5 minutes to do, over time becoming very frustrating.  ...  "

Certainly, for an earbud style, the Sennheiser Momentum earbuds rate very high in sound quality -- perhaps the best I've heard. ... Finally, if your priority is wireless earbuds that perform well for phone calls, these are not the earbuds for you. ... The bottom line is that the fantastic sound quality of these earbuds trumps any other concern that I might have.  ...  "

" ...  Contrary to some other reviewers opinions, I didn't find the touch controls finicky or hard to comprehend.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Seems straight forward until one of the “touches” isn’t registered and instead triggers a different action (skipping song, turning up the volume, etc).  ...  "
comment
" ...  The touch controls are not intuitive. ... While the volume controls make sense, it doesn’t make sense to have 2 taps on the left to forward the music and 3 taps on the left to make it go backwards.  ...  "
comment
" ...  However the quality control has a lot to be desired.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The touch controls never work the first time and you have to keep tapping them which make a loud popping noise in your ear which eventually hurts.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Used this again and as I pressed the button on the case, no light. ... The touch controls needs some getting used to as I still prefer traditional buttons like the Jabras and MW07. ... After 48 hours, press the button on the case- it should light up green. ... 10- Remove the headphones from the case, and press the button on the case.  ...  "
