The first launch of a series of headphones Momentum in 2013, the company Sennheiser has proven to the market that quality and style need not be mutually exclusive categories. The second generation of these headphones has become more solid proof of this thesis. The line has not only been modified but also supplemented by new wireless headphones with noise canceling – and they are just great.
From a design standpoint, Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless are just as good as all the other models of the company. At first glance, they are very similar to the first generation of headphones: full leather headband and cups of graceful shape with stainless steel rails. But it is worth a closer look and you will notice some differences. Rama was the folding headphones that can reduce their size for easy transport and increased cups provide a tight fit.
Soft leather ear pads also become thicker and thus – even more comfortable. During several hours of wearing, we did not feel like to remove or correct them, and ears listening not heated.
The main advantages of the new model over the standard Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless – is aptX Bluetooth support and active noise cancellation system. Both innovations have shown excellent results.

All controls on and reproducing are at the right cup. The power button is also used to establish contact with the different devices (headphones recall up to eight pieces), can also be used for pairing NFC.
Multi-function button while moving up and down controls the volume, and when you perform different functions. Once you remember which combination of keystrokes is responsible for what, this system seems very comfortable.
