DESIGN & COMFORT
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 comes with an alluring giant case of fabric that is handy and comfortable. Bang & Olufsen E8 3.0 replicates it with leather which of course is more stylish. Both have a battery indicator LED at the front corner with a USB type-c charging. The only exception is that the latter one allows you a Qi wireless charging too. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 has a proximity sensor located near the earbuds nodes which lack in Bang & Olufsen E8 3.0.
Both of them come with four contrasting ear tip sizes meant for the sake of fitting inside the ear. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds are relatively larger in size when compared to Bang & Olufsen E8 3.0 which are much smaller yet flexible enough. Where Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds are IPX 4 water-resistant, the rival is IP54 water-resistant and this works nicely with both.
Both of these earbuds come with Qualcomm Aptx which obviously does wonder to the sound quality. But, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 comes with a bit of hiss which sometimes appears quite distracting.
The volume balancing in Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 is much efficient because of the much improved active noise cancellation. The volume balancing is undoubtedly the most amazing one, where you can find the perfect quality sound almost at all volumes. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 alongside lacking active noise cancellation also has much less focus on low vocals. Hence you can expect to find out the audio quality over here not perfect but just okay.
Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 have two microphones. One of the microphones is on the outside of the earbuds. This one works perfectly within Wireless 2 earbuds. The chief reason for this is the minute volume adjustment quality present with these earbuds. The second microphone is located within the earbuds and it’s meant for answering phone calls.
Obviously, because of the active noise cancellation feature within Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, the microphone becomes majestic with zero glitches. This feature lacks in Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 making it lag behind the former.
The transparency mode is present in both of the gadgets. The transparent mode works much better in Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2, because of the white noise cancellation feature and improved equalizer.
Here you are able to hear the surroundings without any additional blockage. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 earbuds though claim to block all the additional noises during the transparency mode, yet it’s not on the spot. The background noises appear.
Sometimes, a bit of white noise appears as distracting the flow. Because of no proximity sensor, the auto-pause and play feature is not there, that is a striking feature of Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds.
If there is a most enthralling feature about Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 ear buds, it’s their battery life. It provides you a 35-hour battery life which constitutes 7 hours on the earbuds with additional 28 hours. Another good thing about this is you are given both USB type-c and wireless Qi charging. This lacks in Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 where the battery life in total is 28 hours. This counts 7 hours in case of earbuds plus 21 additional hours with only USB type-c charging.
Both of them come in the premium price range but Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 is a bit more expensive than Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2. This appears strange to pay a few more bucks and still get no active noise cancellation feature. But, it might be possible that compensation has been made by providing a battery life longer than the rival.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 comes with the most desirable features like active noise cancellation, transparency mode, and proximity sensor. All these active features are available at a premium price. Though the price seems higher than usual the features justify it.
On the other hand, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 is much expensive when compared to the number of available features in it. Although these earbuds are more stylish than their competitors, still features don’t satisfy all the hearing needs. If you are fond of trend-setting among peers, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 3.0 can be a good choice vs Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2. For those loving features, the latter is a great deal to crack on.
