Sennheiser’s Momentum portfolio has added the Momentum True Wireless earbuds, priced at Rs. 24,990. This is the first pair of truly wireless earbuds from Sennheiser and marks the German audio manufacturer’s foray into the truly wireless space.
"The Momentum True Wireless truly redefines the audio benchmark and raises the bar for wearable sound," said Kapil Gulati, Director, Consumer Segment, Sennheiser India. The truly wireless earbuds have 4 hour battery life, which can be extended thanks to the integrated battery in the carrying case. The earbuds also feature 2 microphones for better noise cancellation and beamforming, which together allow the Momentum True Wireless to offer “Transparent Hearing.” This feature essentially allows ambient sound to come in through one of the earpieces, regardless of whether music is playing or not. We’ve seen Sony implement the same functionality in their flagship 1000X series of headphones.

Lastly, Sennheiser has also developed a dedicated app for the earbuds. The app allows for tweaking the sound signature of the earbuds by means of the equalizer settings, along with giving options for smart pause, auto-accepting calls and even configuring voice assistant access.
