Today, Sennheiser introduced the Momentum True Wireless earbuds, which provide stereo sound thanks to 7mm dynamic drivers. These earbuds have a four-hour battery life; the charging case holds an additional eight hours of capacity. They will be available starting in mid-November for $299.95.

The Momentum True Wireless earbuds are compatible with smart assistants like Siri and Google Assistant. Two-mic beamforming helps them pick up your voice in a noisy room more clearly -- this translates to better phone calls and interaction with voice assistants. They also feature a Transparent Hearing setting, which blends in ambient sounds with your music. This allows you to keep the earbuds in while you pay attention to your environment and interact with other people.

The earbuds come in a smart-looking fabric case. The earphones themselves have a metallic finish, with gold-plated charging pins and magnets. They are splash- and sweat-resistant.

They certainly look nice, but it's worth keeping in mind that they are pricey for wireless earbuds. The $300 price point puts them in line with other premium manufacturers such as Bose and B&O. But companies such as Jabra make wireless earbuds (in this case, the Elite 65t) that work very well for a little over half the price. The Momentums are certainly a premium option, but we'll have to wait and see if they're worth the hefty price tag.
