The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Headphones do not skimp on smart features. Furthermore, what makes them stand out from the rest of the noise-canceling earphones is Title Tracking Technology. With the latter, it helps you to look for the earphones if ever they do get lost. However, with the smart function are these over-ear headphones worth the price.

Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Design
The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless has undergone an upgrade and is currently available in black. However, other variants are coming. The headphone is expensive and could be as it has the Title Tracking Technology added. However, when you look at the Momentum Wireless, it does stand out from the crowds with its sleek design and metallic hardware. The headbands adjustable crafted with a pearl-blasted stainless steel slider held in place with a logo adorned button.
You get visible cables connecting the earcups with the headband. Personally, it does not provide a fluid form compared to the Headphone 700 from Bose but remains a matter of taste. Furthermore, the headphones foldable and covered with sheepskin leather, so not made for Vegan listeners. The earcups are incredibly comfortable for wearing a long time. You get an attractive carrying case made of fabric with a USB-C charging cable, aux cable for wired connection, and a USB-C to USB-A adaptor. On the other hand, you do not get fiddly buttons.
The power buttons replaced with an auto on/off function when you remove or place the headphones over your ears. The feature works well as sometimes adjusting the earphones or moving the head stops the music. Therefore, the function works too well for our liking. With the auto function, you also get a multifunction button for playback. Furthermore, you get a switch to use the voice assistant as well and control the noise-canceling.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Performance
What does sets these cans apart from other headphones is Title Tracker. With the Title app you can call for your headphones when you cannot find them. Once you have the app downloaded to your phone and connected, we found the feature works well. The earphones start vibrating and ring loud as time goes on. At the moment, you can use SIRI and Google Assistant, but Alexa will follow soon. You get 17-hours playback but not as good as the WH-1000XM3 from Sony, offering you 30-hours.
However, with the battery use, it should get you through a week of commuting. We found pairing the earphones with our phone seamless with the Sennheiser Smart Control app. With the application, you can control the noise-canceling settings. Moreover, the NC blocks out noise but does not do it as effectively as the WH-1000XM3. But you can listen to your music in peace and control it with the Anti-Wind and Anti-Pressure mode. Then you have a Transparent Hearing mode as well to allow in some ambient noise. We did find this mode works better when the ANC is off.
What about the sound?
The headset supports Bluetooth 5.0 and different codecs. While using the Momentum Wireless, we had no connection dropouts or lagged watching videos. You can adjust the sound quality with the EQ for a punchy bass or natural sound. Listening to the vocals gives you a harmonized sound that is clear. Even piano chords are warm while cascading bass tunes you can hear without it being overpowering. Listening to resonant bass frequencies you can feel it swelling around the vocal harmonies while industrial beats fall around the open wide soundstage. So if you need headphones for vocals, no matter how complex these are the earphones to have, the clarity is excellent, and the natural sound is good.

Should you buy it ?
If you travel a lot, the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless is one of the best noise-canceling headphones to have. The battery use is reasonable, and with the NoiseGard you get ultimate isolation. Making phone calls is exceptional, and with the two-year warranty what more do you need. Furthermore, if ever you do misplace the earphones you can use the Title track to find it quickly.
Our Verdict Using the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
For sound quality, the latest Sennheiser Momentum Wireless edition is excellent. The earphones sound brilliant and offer you warm bass, high levels of detail with natural-sounding highs. Furthermore, you can customize the NC and works well but is not as effective as the standards of the Sony WH-1000XM3. Moreover, battery use also does not compare to the latter. On the other hand, the price is steep, but with the latest Title tracking, it is expected. So if you like an industrial design and premium construction with tracking function you will not be disappointed with these cans.
