The Momentum True Wireless 2 has been a huge success for Sennheiser. The smart control app allows them to deliver new features that will help sustain the value of these quality earbuds. The newest feature is a high-end tuning mode that unlocks new audio profiles for the Momentum 2.
Using DSP, Sennheiser has made three key adjustments to bring the MTW2’s sound closer to that of an audiophile headphone. They’ve started by modeling the effects of the Helmholtz Resonator absorber chamber in the IE 800 series (known as the D2CA) to remove resonance peaking. This paves the way for a cleaner, clearer treble reproduction and leads to update #2: enhanced upper-mid and lower-treble presence.
The resulting are more lifelike and vibrant vocals. Lastly, the High-End Sound Tuning Mode better balances punchy, impactful bass with purposeful separation of the midrange (and thus less smearing of the two ranges). Expect faster, more dynamic bass performance and clearer mids—especially in well-recorded music. MTW2’s signature sound is still present, of course, however, the refinements in this app update provide a flavor better suited for engaged listening.
The Momentum True Wireless 2 inherited some of the best DNA from the 7mm XWB transducer found in the IE 800. Because this transducer is mated to both MTW2’s support for high-quality codecs and now the Smart Control App’s High-End Sound Tuning Mode, users will have a more intimate audiophile experience within MTW2, on command.
