At long last, true wireless earbuds are becoming more and more common around the world. Given their bevy of benefits, one might wonder what took so long. After all, true wireless earbuds are ideal for gym junkies, day-trippers, weekday hustlers and global travellers alike. At the top of the pack are the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds, which deliver an ergonomic design, premium acoustics, and a glorious cord-free experience. And when we say “cord-free”, we mean it in the strictest sense of the term, since true wireless earbuds ditch the cords altogether. However, that’s just one among numerous features making true wireless buds worth the purchase price. Here’s everything you need to know about them.
They’re Years in the Making
While wireless earbuds are a concept that’s more or less as old as Bluetooth technology, the earliest examples were far from optimal. Indeed, even the best Bluetooth earphones of yore didn’t transmit high-resolution fidelity with the same efficiency as their wired counterparts. As if choppy, inferior sound wasn’t bad enough, early wireless earbuds almost always featured a cord between the buds themselves, which some might say is a contradiction of sorts. Last but not least, a number of the earliest designs weren’t necessarily ergonomic, resulting in buds that simply couldn’t stay in or stay comfortable throughout intense workouts.
As Bluetooth technology improved, so too did the best wireless earbuds. Meanwhile, a proprietary family of codec compression algorithms known as aptX was introduced into the mainstream, offering an improved bit-rate, and supporting high-definition audio. Put it all together and true wireless earbuds were thus born. It’s then no surprise that the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds are Bluetooth 5.0 compliant, and equipped with Qualcomm aptX Low Latency compatibility, enabling the top tier of synchronicity and sound. Indeed, everything changes when you listen on Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds.
They’re Ergonomic and 100% Cord-Free
Unlike their compromised forefathers (which hosted a cord between each bud), true wireless earbuds feature no cords or wires whatsoever. Hence, they take the initial concept of wireless sound to its most logical conclusion, delivering a completely untethered listening experience. To ensure that experience is both comfortable and tenable, products like the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds come with adjoining silicone in-ear fittings (available in four sizes). The buds are also lightweight and splash-resistant.
They’re Compatible With an App
Customisation is an essential tenant of modern audio, and the best wireless earbuds duly abide. The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds, for example, come with a free Sennheiser Smart Control app, which allows you to control, configure, update, and personalise a range of settings. That goes not just for the earbuds, but for most Sennheiser products.
They Pack Big Technology Into a Small Package
Once again using the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds as an example, it’s remarkable how much innovation those crafty engineers can squeeze into such a compact product. Between the two ergonomic buds, you’ll find multi-coloured LED indicators, 7mm dynamic drivers, gold plated connectors, a metallic spin ring with touch control, and mic holes. The buds also host 2-mic noise cancellation beamforming technology and Transparent Hearing, keeping you in touch with your aural surroundings, even as you immerse yourself in the music.
They Aren’t Just For Listening
To make a great thing even greater, true wireless buds come with mics built-in, meaning you can use them to make calls. In turn, they’re ideal supplements for your standard Bluetooth headset. Picture yourself on the treadmill or out for a jog–while simultaneously in the middle of an important conference call–and you get the point. On the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds, all it takes is a single tap or swipe on the intuitive touch interface to answer calls or access your voice assistant.
What good would true wireless earbuds be if you could only use them once? To that end, products like the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds feature a built-in Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery. Independently, the battery is good for up to 4 hours of listening time. With the charging case on hand, you can crank that dial all the way up to 12 hours.
The Best True Wireless Earbuds Are Sharp in Every Sense of the Word
Being that true wireless earbuds are meant to be worn outdoors, at work, or at the gym, you’ll want a pair that offers an eye-catching aesthetic. For that, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds most definitely have you covered. Expertly walking the line between form and function, these buds are quintessentially sleek, and built to perform. Even the adjoining carry/charging case is downright sophisticated.
Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds Are Top of the Line
In today’s world, it might seem like technology and convenience are everywhere, but you nevertheless still get what you pay for. And while the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds might cost a little more than your average pair, the difference will quickly speak for itself. Between the premium design and state-of-the-art technology, these legendary earbuds represent the top shelf of true wireless sound. Of course, you probably knew that as soon as you saw the word Sennheiser.
