Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless review: Design

The Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless case and buds come with a very compact design which is sleek and lightweight. It features an all-plastic material like any other earbud which does not make it look heavy or bulky. Despite being lightweight, the Sennheiser Buds offers a tough build quality which will protect the device from any physical damage. The buds come in three aesthetic colour options: Black, Blue and white. I received the black variant which looks quite classy and premium to my taste.

Furthermore, Sennheiser also provides silicon ear tips which user can change according to their preferences. I picked the smallest-sized tip which fitted well to my ears and it did not budge at all during movements unlike the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 4 which I last reviewed. Therefore, you can easily carry these buds while walking, jogging, or any physical activity which involves light movement. However, with extended hours of usage, you may experience some discomfort due to the plastic build. On the other hand, with effective buds fitting, it was able to cancel the background noise, providing a more immersive listening experience.

Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless review: Sound quality, ANC, controls

The Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless offers some premium specifications despite being launched in the mid-range earbud segment. The earbuds feature the 7mm dynamic TrueResponse drivers that claim to deliver premium Sennheiser sound and in this segment, however, it does not match the expectations. I found the sound quality and bass quite average considering other Sennheiser products in the similar price segment. It also offers 24-bit high-resolution audio with LE Audio, offering decent overall sound quality.

The Accentum True Wireless provides connectivity with Bluetooth 5.3 and a Qualcomm BT chip which keeps the connection break-free. It also supports SBC, AAC codecs, LC3 and aptX compatibility for high-quality sound. However, note that you may experience some connectivity issues when the buds have a very low battery. The Accentum True Wireless also support Auracast, but it was not available during the time of my usage. Therefore, the company may soon bring an update for the device to support Auracast.

In terms of controls, the buds support touch controls if you want to play/pause audio, manage volume and calls, and much more. One of the features of touch controls was that users can easily customise controls via the Sennheiser Smart Control app. It also supports wear detection which automatically pauses the audio when one of the earbuds is not in use. Additionally, with the Smart Control app, users can also personalise their listening experience with a 5-band equaliser or simply use the sound check functionality which sets the tone of the audio.

When it comes to ANC, it provides exceptional noise cancellation which can easily block background noise when in a heavily crowded location. Therefore, you can easily carry the buds when you are outside of home or out for a run. Additionally, users can also customise their transparent levels.

Another disappointing feature of the Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless was its microphone. The mic delivers a distorted or robotic sound when you are in a windy or crowded area. Therefore, attending calls wearing these buds could be tricky as I always had to unpair when I had to answer calls due to unclear voice distribution and a huge amount of background noise coming from the microphone.

Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless review: Battery life

The Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless offers 28 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation switched off and up to 6 to 7 hours of playback time with the earbuds. In my opinion, the battery life is good and promising, but I still feel like there is room for more considering the price range of the buds. With ANC on, the buds do not last for a day, therefore, you may have to keep the case charged every single day to enjoy an uninterrupted audio experience.

Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless review: Verdict

Finally, the Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless comes with several exciting features such as smart touch control, audio customisation, ANC and transparency modes, app support, and much more. However, there is room for improvement in terms of providing high-bass audio. The sound quality is quite average and there are better audio devices available at a very low price range. Therefore, in my opinion, the Accentum True Wireless Buds are a hit and a miss in a few areas.
