MO­MEN­TUM ON- EAR SENNHEISER

$ 299.95/ en- au. sennheiser. com

Sennheiser have added two new colours ( brown and black) to their Mo­men­tum On- Ear head­phones. The On- Ears have a clas­sic look of metal and leather. The sound qual­ity is im­pres­sive, with em­pha­sis on the bass, and the build de­tails, down to the car­ry­ing case, give ev­i­dence of a top- notch prod­uct.

PUMP HD SPORT­BUDS BLUEANT

$ 149.95/ blueant­pump.com

Blueant’s Pump HD Sports­buds are Blue­tooth en­abled with large ear­pieces. If you sweat heav­ily, you’ll start to feel the weight of those larger ear loops, but you’ll ap­pre­ci­ate they are wa­ter­proof. Blue­tooth in wa­ter is sketchy at best, so swim­ming can be tough. Most sports buds have or­di­nary au­dio, but these are sur­pris­ingly de­cent.

TRACKS AIR SOL REPUB­LIC

$ 299/ har­veynor­man. com. au

The Tracks Air head­phones ship as three sep­a­rate com­po­nents be­cause the self-as­sem­ble de­sign means you can swap the colour of your head­band. You can con­nect them to mul­ti­ple de­vices ( al­though, with­out us­ing an NFC de­vice, we didn’t find that easy), and its Blue­tooth ex­tends up to 45m. The big pads are com­fort­able and do a good job of block­ing out­side noise. We like the re­mov­able ca­ble and the au­dio bat­tery life up­dates.
