Nothing is more heartbreaking than when one earphone stops working or you have bought a cheapie pair and it fails you. To save you money, Sennheiser has released three new earphones that deliver crisp sound and will last you a while.
The MOMENTUM Free is an all-new wireless model in the acclaimed MOMENTUM headphone family. The MOMENTUM Free features ergonomically designed magnetic earpieces that link together when not in use. The new MOMENTUM Free expands Sennheiser’s range of Bluetooth ear-canal headphones.
The headphones’ high-quality dynamic speaker system and custom-machined stainless steel in-ear sound tunnels deliver superior acoustic precision with a powerful bass response and detailed vocal projection – the signature MOMENTUM sound. Advanced technology ensures that this true hi-fi sound can be enjoyed via crystal clear wireless transmission: the MOMENTUM Free features Bluetooth 4.2 as well as Qualcomm® apt-X™ and AAC codec support. Qualcomm® apt-X™ Low Latency compatibility also enhances the ability to enjoy gaming or video content by keeping audio transmission perfectly in sync with the visuals.
Their six-hour battery life and a luxurious leather case make the headphones the perfect companion for a life on the go.
A three-button remote and high quality in-line microphone for making calls and controlling music are integrated into the cable between the earpieces. Multi-connection with up to two devices at once and 3-way calling support are also provided. An intuitive system of voice prompts provides notifications on the pairing status and battery life.
They feature unique magnets so the headphones can be worn around the neck when not in use. Ear adapters provided in four different sizes ensure a personalised fit in the ear canals for brilliant comfort and excellent attenuation of ambient noise. Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM Free will be available from October 2017.
IE 80 S
With a unique sound function and additional customisation features such as an interchangeable cable and memory foam ear tips from ComplyTM, the IE 80 S promises to take the mobile music experience to the next level.
The new IE 80 S builds on the accomplishments of the original IE 80. The IE 80 S reflects this classic formula, enhancing the professional high-fidelity stereo sound through an improved fit, while incorporating a new design that shares the visual aesthetic of Sennheiser’s high-end audiophile range. The IE 80 S will be available from September, pricing TBC.
Finally, the new wireless CX 7.00BT ear-canal headphones offers a minimalist lightweight neckband design, excellent bass-driven sound and leading-edge wireless technology in an affordable pair of headphones.
With a clear, detailed sound and enhanced bass response, the CX 7.00BT’s performance is assured by leading-edge wireless technologies, including Bluetooth 4.1 and Qualcomm® apt-X™ for true wireless Hi-Fi sound. NFC one-touch pairing makes it simple to immediately connect to smart devices, while the headphone’s multi-connection capability enables simultaneous pairing with up to two devices such as a smartphone and a computer. It’s just as easy to use as a headset for phone calls thanks to an integrated microphone, 3-way calling and helpful voice prompts to notify the user of incoming calls. The CX 7.00BT is facilitated by its ten-hour battery life. The battery can be fully recharged via USB in only 1.5 hours. The CX 7.00BT also supports USB audio via its supplied cable for times when wired used is preferred. The CX 7.00BT will be available worldwide from October, pricing TBC.
