What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
  • I primarily use these when working out at the gym. The low frequency bass is banging! Awesome. And the high frequencies have such good clarity.
  • The sound depth is amazing. Completely immersive! The noise cancellation is 1st class.
  • The soundstage is big and airy and the thumping low bass complements the clear higher frequencies.
  • The sound quality and detail from these earphones are the best I have ever heard.
  • There seems to be some distortion and crackling with longer high frequencies.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds and Charging Case - Black
  • The higher frequency detail is incredible. I can hear things with these that just don't come through with other brands of earbuds.
  • The sound is very good. Relatively full range in both frequency and dynamic level. The stereo imaging is quite good as well, even though it is linked by Bluetooth.
  • High frequency range has excellent detail in the E8s but without being too bright. It just sounds natural, as the engineers intended.
  • Natural and balanced sounds with great clarity through the whole frequency band.
  • Battery life has been brilliant for me and case stays charged with no noticeable drain if left for a few days without use unlike some others I have.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
  • The units them self feel very well built and have a correct weight for its size.
  • The small size and weight mean they are comfortable and unobtrusive.
  • The size is good and comfortable, although I like it you will be looked in the streets because they look like you have earplugs.
  • The case is compact and a perfect size for pockets or bag storage while out and about with you.
  • Only complaint is that for nearly £300, the nearly all-plastic design of the earphones and case coupled with their light weight make them feel somewhat cheap.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds and Charging Case - Black
  • Small and light weight, they are reasonably comfortable to wear, though I do notice a bit of rubbing noise when I walk whilst wearing them, more so than with my other earphones.
  • The charging case, compact enough to slide into your pocket very easily, is an elegant bit of design that disguises the fact it’s got its own built-in battery.
  • The charging box is very impressive. Nice feeling, compact and generally oozes quality, so a good start.
  • They are small light and very comfortable, the bose were not nice to wear after an hour or 2, but these are very good, could keep them in for hours.
  • They’re too too heavy, I tried all sizes of tip to no avail. I am normal size guy, I’ve never had this problem before.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
  • The connection has been so stable. The control design is lovable. The designers truely understands remote control and whats most convenient way to do so.
  • Great fit. A little large but fine. Connection is generally stable.
  • Bluetooth connectivity is great and haven’t had any signal drop-outs. Battery lasts for around the stated 4 hours.
  • Excellent sound quality, decent noise cancellation and maintains good connection.
  • One small issue, the app on IOS is rubbish, even when the headphones are connected via Bluetooth the app still won’t find them.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds and Charging Case - Black
  • Connection to my phone was very easy. The battery life is good.
  • The comfort in my ears is excellent. The noise cancelling is good. You also get an option with an app to change the sound character with a very easy to use EQ app.
  • Bluetooth connectivity was solid with just an ever so slight lag latency while watching videos.
  • The ear buds themselves took me quite a while to get used to. Pairing with my phone took three attempts, for no apparent reason.
  • They were not easy to connect initially but when I did there is constant interference and intermittent loss of connection, especially when walking along.

What customers say about "Power"
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
  • A 4H battery life plus charges from the case is more than enough for what they were designed for.
  • The battery is ok. These are great for easy listening, travels etc.
  • The battery life seems fine, I haven't been anywhere near running out of juice and only need to charge the case every few days.
  • Overall a very good product, sound quality is great, isolation is great, it looks good, battery lasts reasonably long.
  • When the case is fully charged, this will allow 12 hours use, and this is 4 hours with the ear buds and an additional 8 hours rechargable with the case. Charging is very fast.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds and Charging Case - Black
  • Fast charging, lightweight, noise cancelling and ability to activate microphone to hear conversations or ambient sounds if needed.
  • They charge quickly, and the option for wireless charging is appealing.
  • Battery life is great. What i noticed between these and the bose is the case holds the battery charge, where as the bose and sony deteriate after a few days.
  • The battery life is good. 4 hours in the devices plus another 3 charges in the carrying case so 16 hours in total with 2 hours for each recharge.
  • The four hour or so battery seems to be a fair shout and the included case stores additional charges so if you are prepared you can get up to sixteen hours out of them.
