Sennheiser Momentum Sport wireless earbuds that track heart rate and body temperature finally started shipping this week after their big reveal in January at CES 2024.

Heart rate and body temperature sensors were expected in AirPods Pro (2nd generation), launched in September 2022, but didn’t end up in the product (yet).

Sennheiser Momentum Sport wireless earbuds

Sennheiser first unveiled Momentum Sport at CES 2024, but then took a while to start shipping them.

The new Momentum Sport true wireless earbuds are optimized for fitness via real-time biometric feedback. Integrated photoplethysmography (PPG) heart rate and body temperature sensors output data to popular fitness apps and devices.

Heart rate data connects with popular sport devices and apps, according to the company. Devices and apps include Apple Watch/Health, Garmin Watch/Connect, Strava, Peloton and others.

“For the first time ever in a non-Polar product, users will be able to enjoy full access to Polar’s elite biosensing capabilities and data analytics — including Body Temperature — offering real-time insights during training and deeper offline analysis via the Polar Flow app ecosystem,” Sennheiser noted. Polar joined forces with Sennheiser in January.

Top features per Sennheiser:

  • To minimize footstep noise, breathing and other body-borne distractions, the earbuds feature an acoustic relief channel and semi-open design for natural environmental awareness.
  • An adjustable Transparency mode, Anti-wind mode, and Adaptive Noise Cancelling mode let the wearer easily adapt as their surroundings change.
  • The all-new acoustic system features a redesigned transducer that handily delivers the best sound quality yet in a Sennheiser sport earbud.

Momentum Sport details:

  • Colors: colors: polar black, burned olive and metallic graphite
  • IP55 sweat and water resistance
  • Shock-proof chassis
  • Clog-resistant ear tips
  • IP54-rated, Qi-enabled carrying case stores up to three additional earbud recharges (up to 24 hours of playtime).
  • 10 minutes of USB-C quick-charging provides up to 45 minutes of playback.
  • Cost: $329.95
