What’s the sound quality like?

Our review of the Sennheiser Momentum TW is currently a work-in-progress but - sneak peek - we're really impressed with them so far. The sound quality is really clean, the built-quality and material design is top-notch and we've yet to encounter a single dropout or connectivity issue - an impressive feat for the brand's first entry in the true wireless niche.
