The giant Sennheiser is launching a new wireless headset with active noise reduction, the Momentum Wireless. Can this model compete with the likes of the genre?

Presentation

Sennheiser has decided to hit hard this fall 2019 with Momentum Wireless, its new nomad wireless headphones with active noise reduction which launches the third generation of headsets in this range. Marketed at a price of € 399, this model highlights the performance and versatility of its active noise reduction, compatibility with the aptX Low Latency codec in particular, very intuitive use (full controls, pause and automatic resumption of music, etc.). ) a high level of listening comfort and experience. This Momentum Wireless is positioned directly in front of high-end models on the market, such as the WH-1000XM3 from Sony , the Headphones 700 and the QC35 II from Bose, the Elite 85h from Jabra or thePX from Bowers & Wilkins to name a few. Suffice to say that the battle will be particularly tough.

We tested the helmet without version 2.0.11 with a Smart Control application in version 2.1.6.

Ergonomics

The 2019 Momentum Wireless vintage retains many of the aesthetic aspects of the old designs, including a through metal hoop, oval ear cups and the sliding adjustment system. The manufacturing is particularly neat and the whole exudes solidity. The helmet combines metal, plastic and leather elements – and too bad for ethics. Only downsides to note: the visible cables between each headset and the impossibility of orienting the headsets flat (90 °). Fortunately, the ear cups fold up towards the headband for easy storage and transport. A large soft fabric pocket is provided to store the headphones and all of their cables.

The comfort of this Momentum Wireless 2019 is very good. First of all, we must salute the ease of adjustment and the generosity of deployment of the headband, which allow young and old to put on the helmet quickly and comfortably (from 34 to 45 cm approximately by measuring from ear to ear and passing through the top of the skull). The helmet naturally finds its place on the head, the pads are soft to the touch – although they keep warm very quickly -, the pavilions have enough room in depth and width to accommodate themselves properly and the pressure points are well distributed . 

The weight of the helmet is rather contained if we compare it to some of its competitors. And although the earbuds hold fairly firmly on the head, the clamping effect remains fairly discreet. The contact points, whether at the level of the atria or the headband, on the other hand, are localized and firm hairs. It is very widely bearable, but that is what separates this helmet from the best in the field.

Audio

The Momentum Wireless is based on two 42 mm speakers, which offer us a great listening experience. Especially if we take the trouble to tame them thanks to the integrated EQ. Without any intervention on the part of the user, the Momentum Wireless is generous, to say the least: whether by the beautiful extension of the frequency response, especially in the highest frequencies, or by its sound signature in W.

The generosity of Momentum Wireless is immediately apparent in the extreme low / low frequencies. This is all the more true with the active noise reduction engaged, because this zone then benefits from an additional boost . In either case, the effect on the feeling of depth, impact and more generally the seat is interesting, because it increases the immersion provided by the bass. 

That said, even if we appreciate the more subdued sound rendering. The behavior of the headphones is not flawless and more reactive membranes in this region would have been interesting. They tend to hang around a little after each attack. 

CONCLUSION

With the Momentum Wireless 2019, Sennheiser is catching up with some of its direct competitors. These Bluetooth headphones offer good comfort, a complete and intuitive user experience, honorable active noise reduction and good sound reproduction. That said, models like the WH-1000XM3 , to name just this one, still dominate it on virtually every point, at a more affordable price.
