It’s not often that I have to refer to a manual while I’m reviewing something, but that’s exactly what I found myself doing while reviewing the $300 Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 (MTW2).
The earbuds, which are Sennheiser’s second stab at the true wireless form factor, shouldn’t be particularly complicated. They’re basically the same as Sennheiser’s first true wireless earbuds, albeit with added noise cancellation and better battery life. But at their default settings, their touch controls take quite a bit of getting used to. They’re annoyingly unintuitive.
Thank goodness, then, that these controls are customizable. With a little tweaking, you can end up with a pair of true wireless earbuds that sound great, feature excellent noise-canceling performance, have improved battery life, and are also fairly easy to control. They’re expensive compared to most of their true wireless competition, but I think they just about justify it, even if it won’t make them a top pick for everybody.
