If you have been thinking about buying a pair of Sennheiser Momentum wireless headphones, I’d urge you to think again. Sennheiser has just recalled all existing units and have even stopped production. I believe the primary cause of this decision is due to Bluetooth issues. Engadget has more details about this so make sure to check it out if you’re seriously thinking about buying a pair.
Let me just add that I quite liked the Sennheiser Momentum headphones. They looked awesome and the sound quality was insanely good. The funny thing is that when I tested them, I didn’t have any issues with the Bluetooth. I suppose that could just be because I didn’t spend too long with them.
While Sennheiser maintains that the issue only affects a handful of units, the fact that they have completely stopped production of the Momentum headphones makes me think there is seriously something wrong here.
Sennheiser are known for making awesome headphones so it wouldn’t surprise me if the production is back on track soon, but for now at least, I would recommend staying away from the Momentums. If you really want to buy a new pair of headphones soon, maybe look at the cheaper Sennheiser 598s. For the price, these are excellent value for money and I actually discussed them in this article so make sure to read that.
To sum it up, I wouldn’t recommend getting the Sennheiser Momentum wireless headphones. I think they’re too expensive and there are better alternatives out there. There also seems to be a couple of issues with them right now and Sennheiser have completely halted production. This could even mean that they might be discontinued.
