Filipino audiophiles and music lovers are in for a treat as The Loop by Power Mac Center at SM Mall of Asia is adding to its product lineup the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless earbuds with Bluetooth 5.0 support and touch controls for a variety of functions. Revealed at IFA 2018, these are the first wireless earbuds Sennheiser introduced to the market.

The Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless retails at PHP 19,990. Payments via WeChat and Alipay are also accepted. 

By simply tapping the earbuds, users can choose tracks, adjust volume, and even answer and end calls through its intuitive touch pad technology. Other features are provided by the free downloadable Smart Control app for iOS and Android, such as Smart Pause, a smart feature which pauses audio when one of the earbuds is removed, and Transparent Hearing, an add-on that controls how much outside or ambient noise users want to hear.

“With people now more mobile, the demand for devices which support the lifestyle are definitely growing, and we at The Loop by Power Mac Center are fulfilling that by providing cutting-edge technologies like the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless. Its smart and connectivity features ensure that users never miss a beat or a moment,” said Power Mac Center Director of Marketing and Product Management, Joey Alvarez.

Users can also connect the earbuds to their phone’s smart assistant, making it possible to enable Siri and Google Assistant with just a tap. This allows more time to do activities or work on the go as it removes the need to reach for and physically activate the phone.

A global leader in producing top of the line audio products, Sennheiser made sure the MOMENTUM True Wireless earbuds deliver only superior stereo sound performance at all times with its 7mm drivers powered by the company’s audiophile driver technology. This provides advanced Qualcomm apt-X Low Latency compatibility and AAC codec support, allowing users to experience media with perfectly lip-synced audio. Clear voice conversations are also assured by the device’s 2-mic-beamforming technology. 

All in all, the audio technology within the earbuds allows it to have a frequency response of up to 21,000 Hz.

We’re very excited to bring our Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless here since we believe that it answers both demands—being able to provide high fidelity audio while also making traveling hassle-free thanks to its various smart and touch functions,” said Sennheiser Asia Managing Director, Martin Low.

Its sleek premium black housing, polished metallic spin ring, and gold-plated charging pins also make the MOMENTUM True Wireless an ideal fashion accessory. The earbuds are also splash-resistant and its ear adapters come in four different ear tip sizes. Battery life can last for 4 hours but this can be prolonged up to 12 hours, thanks to its fabric-wrapped case which also acts as a charging station.
