NEW GAD­GET

Daily Mercury - - WEEKEND - WITH GE­OFF EGAN

Sennheiser’s new AirPod com­peti­tors, the Mo­men­tum True Wire­less, could be some of the best wire­less ear buds go­ing. But they come with a premium price.

Sennheiser is known for au­dio qual­ity and the Mo­men­tum prom­ises to be one of the best-sound­ing ear buds on the mar­ket.

Like AirPods be­fore them, and nu­mer­ous other wire­less ear buds, the Mo­men­tum charges in­side a pur­pose-built case. But un­like its com­peti­tors, the Mo­men­tum does not fea­ture but­tons or switches. In­stead the ex­te­rior is a touch pad used to turn them on, an­swer phone calls or ac­cess your phone’s smart as­sis­tant. But per­form­ing each task re­quires tap­ping or hold­ing the cor­rect ear bud for the cor­rect func­tion. It is fu­tur­is­tic but can be con­fus­ing. Price $499.95.
