Sennheiser's excellentearbuds started out at $300, but for the last several months have been selling for $250 and more recently drifted down to around $225 on Amazon. Now they've hit , which is their lowest price to date. The discount could mean their sales have slowed due to fiercer true-wireless competition, particularly from buds. Or it could mean that a Momentum True Wireless 3 will arrive before year's end. Crutchfield says the sale price is good through Sunday, Sept. 12, and .
We awarded these buds an Editors' Choice back in March 2020 and I gave them high marks for their sound quality, as well as good noise canceling and headset performance for calls. Sennheiser recently released its new($130), a non-noise-canceling model that replaces the earlier CX400BT.
The Momentum True Wireless 2 are probably due for an upgrade, although I don't think we'll see major changes. I suspect gen 3 would have a new chipset that would slightly improve performance, battery life and call quality. But the upgraded model, whenever it comes, will likely start out at $300.
If you're willing to go the refurbished route to save some extra dough, it's worth noting that Amazon is selling.
