Interested in a versatile and awesome sounding pair of earbuds? Check out the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones. These knocked my socks off. Speaking as a hobbyist audiophile who is still attached to listening to vinyl, I can say these earbuds changed everything for me. They have a wide and really well-defined soundstage.

I was lukewarm on the idea of wireless. I worried they would fall out when I work out at the gym. But they were great. I fit them with the right earbuds (the package comes with four different sizes) and did my workout and at some point I stopped thinking about them. I even stopped thinking about my workout and ended up walking 10 extra minutes on the treadmill.

When I listen to well-recorded semi acoustic music by Van Morrison or Lucinda Williams, and Motown and Jazz, these earbuds created tremendously big sound. I could close my eyes and feel like I was in a room with a large stereo and speakers. I kid you not. Really terrific separation and stage presence. From the highs of the hi-hat and cymbals to the deep bass, these earbuds delivered everything with great authority. Definition was good and handled in a way that listening fatigue was not a problem.

I have a pair of decent wired earbuds and a pair of pretty expensive headphones, and the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones beat them both as far as I’m concerned.

The earbuds have touch controls that are easy to remember: one, two and three taps on the left or the same on the right in order to control things like pause, play, skip, volume. But get this, they also allow you to access your voice-activated assistant in your smartphone, in my case Siri.

I don’t know how the technology works, but for listening to music and as general wireless earbuds these Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbud Headphones are a winner. Hey, life is short. Enjoy the music!
