Sennheiser Momentum TW (true wireless) earbuds

What’s the sound quality like?

Our review of the Sennheiser Momentum TW is currently a work-in-progress but - sneak peek - we're really impressed with them so far. The sound quality is really clean, the built-quality and material design is top-notch and we've yet to encounter a single dropout or connectivity issue - an impressive feat for the brand's first entry in the true wireless niche.

Look forward to our full review sometime in the near future.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
