Sennheiser is ending the year with a bang. The audio company opened a new brand store at Marina Bay Sands and released the third-gen of the MOMENTUM headphone series. The Marina Bay Sands store has Sennheiser's varied catalogue, interactive wall panels for "customers to connect their smart devices to display headsets "and a listening room to experience the label's most expensive headphones, the HE 1.
The latest wireless MOMENTUM model is an improvement from its predecessors. There's the intuitive interface—the Auto On/Off feature and the Smart Pause functions, the latter puts the audio on hold whenever the headphones are removed and resumes when they are slipped back on. There's a three-button control system that deals with audio or phone calls and voice assistance with Siri and Google Assistant through a dedicated button.
There are the usual quality speaker system (42mm transducers) that Sennheiser is known for, Bluetooth 5 compatibility and support for codecs (aptXTM, AAC, SBC, aptXTM Low Latency). And, the Active Noise Cancellation modes that have a Transparent Hearing that lets you listen to your music and yet be aware of ambient sounds like an airport announcement or a car honk. every interaction. Coupled with the padded ear pads and a 17-hour battery life and you have a very handsome and useful device for that stocking stuffing.
Sennheiser's MOMENTUM headphone retails for SGD599 and is available at all good audio stores and Sennheiser's online page.
