Really good price, heat added
That's cheaper than refurbished from Sennheiser!
These are one of the few truly wireless earbuds with APTX-LL btw (you need an APTX-LL transmitter, though).
T20 wireless is 160 at the moment on RHA

I say this because I have sennheiser momentums and T20s, the T20s are a league above for sure.
Are these the new generation?
I have the original generation of these, they're fantastic sound quality but the constant battery drain mechanism makes them frustrating to use as you have to recharge them every few days regardless if you have actually used them or not.
Impossible to have them on hand to use when you need them.

Any guides on how to do a unidays account without being an actual student? Is it possible?

Doubt they will sound even close!

This, those will completely suck compared to momentums lol
I nearly bought these, but I've since delved into the world of cheap Chinese buds. I haven't bought any yet but it seems you get can some for <£30, with the latest Qualcomm chip (not slave-master like these), without any stupid battery issues (like these) and with IPX7 (these only have IPX5). And you can get some like the Lypertek Levi which sound decent too for <£100.

Perhaps the Sennheisers will still sound better, but I think that the technology is now mature enough that Momentum's quirks are no longer forgivable, especially at this price.

They won't be close most likely. The chip doesn't give chinese manufacturers good products, anymore than you could hand an A12 bionic processor to a team of poor engineers and expect them to whip up an iphone. Earbuds, especially wireless ones, are complex pieces of tech, nothing wrong with going budget but I'd warn against no name chinese stuff unless you like disposable possessions.

Creative outliers are £55 and will destroy any no name brand I'd imagine.

Well in the world of wired IEMs, you can get decent chinese IEMs of similar quality to cheap Sennheisers, for peanuts. Of course there are a lot of rubbish ones too. And some of the the chinese TWS buds are meant to be decent according to the reviews here scarbir.com.

Anyway, my argument isn't that you should cheap Chinese ones necessarily, but that you should expect more from Sennheiser, and look elsewhere instead.

I got these on the unidays deal.

I'm no audiophile I couldn't even tell you what lows, mids and highs are.

I did a great deal of research and lots of youtube videos. My first pair of true wireless was urbanista Tokyo and they sounded great but then again I really didn't know what great sounds like so as long it didn't sound like a tin it was fine for me.

Now having heard these and I appreciate wired headsets will sound better but sticking with truly wireless this is what great sounds like. I now understand what the lows, mids and highs are supposed to soundlike and also the soundstage is really amazing. You can really hear the detail in the music I've heard things from tracks that I play on a regular basis that I haven't heard before the really finer details and I have to mention the soundstage again for me it was a new and it has truly changed my music experience.

Some points to note yes there is a battery drain issue however you can switch off the earphones from the app which I believe is supposed to stop the issue I haven't had a chance to check this as I've been using mine on a daily basis and so have been charging them regularly. Sticking on this point there seems to be a fix for this issue if you put a magnetic USB c connector into the case it sorts the battery drain issue so I've seen on a youtube video I will do this as once all this lockdown stuff is over as I probably won't be using on a daily basis.

The battery has lasted me about 3 and a half hours which is more than enough for me.

I have small ears so in all fairness I do find them a little uncomfortable but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for the sound quality.

Bottom line is are these worth the money at £300 absolutely not superb sound quality or not. At £135 are these worth the money absolutely yes even with the shortfalls.

If you can get this via unidays try it out, if you don't like them you can send it back free within 60 days.

I haven't regretted my purchase, I was just about to buy the soundcore liberty pro 2 as I felt they offered the best value but then these came along and worth every penny for the sound quality at this price anyway.

I'm not really proving your point, I have the creative outliers, they are great buds, but my t20 RHAs are leagues ahead. £150 vs £50. Advanced sound engineering is difficult, it requires skill not just materials, hence the cost.

The wireless t20 design is awful. No one wants a big plastic lump round their neck.

Ive had 2 pairs of wired t10s and agree the sound is good, but it's not stunning. I don't know about the wireless t20s but both the wired t10s and t20s had issues with the over ear pieces snapping or unwinding... Ive had 4 warranty replacements across 2 pairs.

I largely agree with android12s assertion that midrange Chinese buds are very good nowadays. The T10s I had were much closer to a £30 pair of anker in-ears than a £350 pair of Shure SE535 headphones. However having had my Shures snap (being polycarbonate instead of steel) I've largely stuck with the steel RHAs since as I can't afford to lose that kind of money.

Yes, of course, spend more for better quality. But in the case of these buds, it doesn't matter how good the audio engineers are at Sennheiser, if they have a serious design flaw such as self-discharging, because then they might not work when you want them as they'll have run out of battery.

I'm not saying don't buy better, just that I don't recommend these in particular. Probably better to look at the Sony 1000XM3.

So you haven't tried the models I mentioned, I don't understand the point of this comment? Soundguys give the t20 wireless 9.5 and above in all sound quality categories. You're commenting on a product you don't own.

Sony 1000XM3 are great, they're not as strong sounding as T20s according to audiophile sites but they do the job.

I own the arguably better wired version, which doesn't rely on codecs or profiles to transmit sound. Seems unlikely the wireless version has better sound quality than the wireless. And the wired headphones are certainly not a 9, especially at over 80-90 quid.

Users on the soundguys website rate these in the 7s. In the sound quality categories not the high 9s and soundguys overall score is 7.7

I have the wired and wireless version. The wired version is vastly inferior.
I can only see these at £279 (same as the Momentum 2 bizarrely). Has the price changed or have I missed something?

Ah, I see in the pic, not £179 to £135 as in the title but £279. Got it, heat added.

Disagree. Have had a few chinese cheap buds. In comparison sounded as good as samsung's earbuds for the fraction of the price(~£22).

they are actually extremely good quality and a hell of a lot cheaper!
