[Amazon.ca] Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless Headphone $199.97

those are pretty good wireless headphones. ANC is not the best but the sound quality is bomb. All time low on amazon.

ANC is ok, drowns out airplane noise adequately. Build quality and sound blow Bose out of the water.

I bought the first generation of these around 5 years ago. They've held up well and are still my daily headset at work. I think Bluetooth may have stopped working but I don't use it. I have the around ear version which I'd recommend. I find them to be pretty comfortable but that depends on ear size. The noise cancellation on airplanes is amazing. I don't think mine can be on while charging but they can still be used if 3.5mm headset jack is used. They may have fixed that. I bought for around $500. At $200 I'd buy again if the original died.

Does it support AAC? I've been reading mixed info over this.

Yeah, I thoroughly tested these a couple years ago against the Bose QC35s and the Sony MDR x1000, and overall I found the ANC to be a little worse than either Sony or Bose, and sound quality wise was comparable to the MDR x1000, both of which blew the QC35s out of the water for any music with any low end nuance.

But that was a few years ago when they were all I roughly the same price range, given that this is like half the price of the current gen MDR line I'd say this is a great deal.

How do these compare to something like the Sony XM3s? Been itching to pull the trigger on the XM3s for a while - missed the last sales in Nov, wondering how this compares.

I see you understand how the internet works and how many altering opinions come together for discussion. Golf clap.

I haven't heard the new sony ones, and they get great reviews. I did listen to Bose and wasn't overly impressed by the build quality or sound. However the noise cancelling was fantastic.

Of course, just one opinion.

Great price - this even beats Perkopolis pricing ($209.99).

one opinion shared by many. it's probably the consensus about Bose. great ANC but everything else is decent. for the premium asking price, may not be worth it but a 40% off? totally worth it. it all comes down to what you are looking for and what will be the use. if one wants great ANC, they may have to stay away from Sennheiser and go towards Bose or Sony. if they want good sound quality, they may go towards Sennheiser and Sony depending on what signature sound they like best

I would say these are worth it for $200, but I didn't actually find they sounded that great. Definitely not as good as my wired Sennheiser Momentum 2. When you turn on the active mode with ANC, they sound a bit loose. The new model Momentum 3 sounds a lot more even and neutral, and the ANC is better.

I'm still waiting on my Drop Pandas, they aren't ANC but could be a game changer,

RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Yup if I found a pair of Bose for 40 percent off I'd consider it for the plane just for the anc. Don't think you often find the latest Bose that cheap though.

I love that Sennheisers have multipoint support for easy switching between devices, something the Sony’s don’t. I had the first gen of these and loved them for that. Have since switched to the Bose QC35’s and find them much more comfortable for longer wearing periods.
