Music to your ears
Alex Kidman and Rod Chester check out these easy- listening headphones
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.
