These earbuds may not have the latest charging method, but sound chất lượng is just as good as it was in 2017. If you want something stylish and timeless, these earbuds are a great option.
We’ve been seeing plenty of true wireless earbuds lately. Yeah, that công nghệ is neat và convenient, but it isn’t always the most reliable wireless option. In fact, it’s hardly ever the most reliable wireless option, at least as of now. But the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless are a pair of comfortable neckband-style earbuds that are aptX & AAC-compatible và ready to lớn accompany you anywhere.

Editor’s note: this Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear reviews was updated on February 18, 2021, khổng lồ include a contents menu và expand the danh mục of buying options.


The Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless earbuds are a neckband style earbud that are comfortable & flexible, both of which are great for all-day use.
Fashionable listeners will appreciate the fine build unique of the Sennheiser Momentum HD1 earbuds. Meticulous red stitching contrasts the otherwise all-black design of these buds.General consumers should consider these once-expensive earphones. Sure, they may be a few years old, but they still have all the comforts of a premium headset like high-quality công nghệ bluetooth codec support and easy-to-operate button controls.

What’s it like to use the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear?

The first thing you notice about these earbuds is the gorgeous, soft sheepskin nappa leather and stitching across the flexible neckband. The red threading & cable accents provide a bit of flair without compromising the chic kiến thiết of the HD1 earbuds. On the left wing of the neckband, are playback controls, a power button, và omnidirectional microphone.


Each stainless steel earbud rocks a mirrored chrome finish, & they’re complemented by the impact-resistant polycarbonate elements. Though the earbuds look and feel great, it would have been a more convenient feature to địa chỉ some kind of magnetic or retractable functionality. Due to the somewhat fragile materials & lack of IP rating for these earbuds, you should use caution when working out in them. It’s do-able, but perspiration will quickly erode away at the leather. Not khổng lồ mention that a bit of moisture và bad luck can lead lớn short circuiting.

The on-board, omnidirectional microphone sounds all right. Although, it doesn’t hold a candle to lớn the best headphones for conference calls, the mic is perfectly fine for everyday use và even some professional calls. When you purchase the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless earbuds, you get a molded, zipper carrying case; a micro-USB charging cable; and three pairs of ear tips.

How khổng lồ use the onboard controls


On the left interior of the neckband, there are three buttons for playback control, và the center button can be used to lớn access virtual assistants lượt thích Google Assistant and Siri. Since they’re separate buttons that have about 1mm of separation between each one, it’s easy to differentiate between all of them. This was useful when biking around town; I never fumbled around lớn pause or skip a track. Speaking of which, track control is a little odd in that it requires holding the volume up or down button, not double-tapping the center button. Just something to lớn note.


The earbuds take about 1.5 hours khổng lồ complete a full charge cycle và are then able to provide over 10 hours of playback.
It only takes 1.5 hours to go from zero lớn 100 percent, but Sennheiser reports a battery life of 10 hours, which isn’t great for a pair of neckband-style earbuds. Although 10 hours isn’t groundbreaking, it’s worth giving the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless ‘buds props for having a battery life of 10.13 hours with a constant 75dB output. Though it won’t damage your hearing, 75dB is fairly loud. Most of us won’t listen to our music at such volumes; in which case, you may squeeze out 10.5 or even 11 hours of playback.

Does the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear stay connected?

These công nghệ bluetooth không dây 4.1 earphones support AAC & aptX for high-quality streaming from any device. As with most modern devices, connecting is quick and easy. You can either enter pairing mode by holding the nguồn button for three seconds, or just tap your NFC-enabled device lớn the biểu tượng logo on the left wing of the neckband to lớn bypass your phone’s bluetooth menu. Once connected, you have a 10-meter radius before things start to get crackly.

What’s more, Sennheiser doesn’t explicitly state this on the box, but the headphones tư vấn Bluetooth multipoint. This means you can connect lớn two devices simultaneously.

Since these are aptX and AAC-compatible, there’s virtually no perceptible audio-visual lag. When I was binge watching Nathan For You, I didn’t experience any awkward delay. Another perk of these bluetooth codecs is their ability lớn stream higher quality audio from the source device to the headphones. In the case of aptX, this relays CD-like audio straight lớn your ears, which is more than good enough for most of us.


Like the MOMENTUM True Wireless line, these earbuds amplify low-end frequencies. This is typical of consumer headsets as we’re accustomed to lớn hearing exaggerated bass notes. The 3-6kHz dip is nothing lớn worry about; instead, it’s actually a feature of the sound signature because this is where unwanted resonances fall within the human ear canal.

Isolation performance is good, và we measured an average isolation of 11.69dB SPL. These earbuds vì a decent job negating noise between 100Hz và up like that buzzing refrigerator that you need lớn fix, or the chortling baritone taking up too much counter space at the coffee bar. In all fairness, effective isolation is highly dependent upon a proper fit và seal. If the included ear tips aren’t a good fit, we highly recommend investing a few extra bucks into Comply memory foam ear tips.

Lows, mids, highs

In Good As Hell by Lizzo, the kick drum that enters (0:12) is noticeably louder than high notes, and some masking comes into play. Even still, Lizzo’s vocals remain audible above the kick drum and A-G-Fm piano chord pattern.

Simple by Florida Georgia Line is a fine case study for the earbuds’ midrange reproduction. The basic Am-C-F-C-F-G chord progression is difficult lớn hear over the instrumental chorus, và Brian Kelley và Tyler Hubbard’s harmonies become unclear in the din.

Cory Wong rocks out in Jax, an instrumental-only groovy ballad that’s predominated by the electric guitar và accompanied by a variety of instruments including the drums, piano, trumpet, electric & bass guitars, & a synthesizer. The bass guitar and drums sound fantastic through the HD1 wireless earbuds, but the higher frequencies of the synthesizer fall short.

That said, the highs fare better than the frequency response graph would lead you to lớn believe. The trumpet harmonics, which oscillate between 1-9kHz, sound much more prominent than I was expecting, interestingly, the reverberations of the electric guitar weren’t as emphasized with these as they are with my personal pair of RHA MA750i earbuds.
