Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition

Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition

Sennheiser stands for 75 years of passion for outstanding sound, and this anniversary should be duly celebrated. To mark this occasion, the German company now offers the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition, which builds on the regular version but comes in an elegant black look with the original Sennheiser logo.


Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG has been one of the leading companies in the field of pro audio for years, whether microphones, professional headphones or wireless systems, but also in the consumer segment, in this case of course especially in the field of headphones.

But all this started in 1945, when Dr. Fritz Sennheiser founded the Laboratorium Wennebostel, subsequently referred to simply as Laboratory W. It was not until a few years later, in 1958, that the name of the founder also became that of his company, although in those days people still spoke of Sennheiser electronic. Even though the early years were mainly characterised by developments in the field of microphones, not least in cooperation with German radio and television stations, the German company, which had long been known as Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG and managed by Daniel Sennheiser and his brother Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, the third generation of the Sennheiser family, has nevertheless chosen a headset to celebrate this year’s 75th anniversary: the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2, which is offered in the form of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition.

The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition is intended as a tribute to the long tradition of Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG’s long tradition of being totally committed to the passion for outstanding sound. This credo was already established by company founder Dr. Fritz Sennheiser and remains valid today. The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition is proof of this, as it offers state-of-the-art technology for a modern lifestyle and guarantees attractive music enjoyment whenever and wherever users want it. From a technical point of view, the new model is naturally based on the regular model, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2, but the limited Anniversary Edition has a particularly exclusive design.

Whether Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 or Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition, as the name suggests, these are all True Wireless In-ear headphones, meaning that they do not use any cables at all. The signal transmission is therefore solely via Bluetooth, whereby Bluetooth 5.1 is used. The signal transmission is based on A2DP, AVRCP, HSP or HFP and supports the codecs SBC as well as AAC and aptX, whereby the former uses lossy compression, while the two others allow signal transmission in “CD quality”, depending on whether you use an Apple iPhone or a smartphone based on Google Android.

The In-ear headphones rely on a dynamic 7 mm driver, which in principle would probably be capable of more than the signal transmission via Bluetooth, so that the frequency range is ultimately specified as “only” 5 Hz up to 21 kHz. The German company rightly attaches the greatest importance to emphasising that these are drivers which are manufactured in the main factory of Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG in Germany, not only developed, but even manufactured at the headquarters of Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co.

The company describes the sonic character of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition as having a rich, dynamic bass response, natural mids and detailed highs.

It is interesting to note that it is also possible to make a little adjustment here, using the corresponding app, the Sennheiser Smart Control App, which is available for Apple iOS and Google Android. This app also allows another very interesting function, and an active noise cancelling, also known as ANC. This is especially remarkable in that In-ear headphones, when used with optimal earpieces, provide good shielding against ambient noise even without electronic assistance. With this ANC, completely undisturbed music enjoyment is guaranteed. The basis for the calculation of the counter-noise, which is mixed with the wanted signal to reproduce the music alone, is a microphone integrated into the earplugs. Fortunately, the developers of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition also allow a so-called Transparancy Mode, which allows ambient noise to be perceived at the touch of a button. The manufacturer calls this Transparent Hearing.

Of course, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition can also be used as a hands-free device, and the smartphone’s Voice Assistant is also available, be it Apple Siri or Google Assistant.

Control is via a sensor panel on the outside of the inear headphones, with playback control as well as volume control and answering/ending calls.

The ergonomic design of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition is intended to ensure that the headphones are comfortable to wear even for hours on end. Silicone earpieces in sizes XS, S, M and L are also included.

The integrated lithium-ion battery is designed to provide a playing time of up to seven hours. Of course, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition also comes with a transport box which acts as a so-called power bank, meaning that it has its own battery and is therefore available for charging the headphones on the road. This increases the total playing time to up to 27 hours. A quick-charge function ensures that the battery is fully charged after just one and a half hours, ten minutes are enough to be able to enjoy around one and a half hours of music again. At least one USB-A to USB-C cable is included in the scope of delivery for charging at the wall socket. So you still need an appropriate 5V power supply with USB port.

The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition is presented in subtle black, with the manufacturer’s logo on the outside in its original form. The regular version of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 is also available in black, but here the outside is silver and features the current Sennheiser logo. This also applies to the white version of the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2.

Finally, we would like to emphasise that the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 Anniversary Edition is of course certified to IPX4 and is therefore not waterproof, but at least resistant to splashing water. A walk or even sporting activities in the rain should therefore hardly harm the headphones.

“Since our foundation in 1945, we have been constantly setting new standards in audio quality and listening experiences. With this in mind, we have developed the second generation of the MOMENTUM True Wireless. With the anniversary edition of these popular headphones, we are remaining true to our origins and at the same time thanking our customers “.
