For a wireless headphone, the earbuds provide you excellent comfort and superior fit. The Momentum True Wireless possess a superb passive noise isolation, acting almost like noise-canceling headphones but without consuming power to actively cancel out noise, reports Vlad Savov of the Verge.

The earbuds have mirrored chrome finish and ultra-soft sheepskin nappa leather stitched onto the neckband.

The earbuds are very very light, one of the lightest earphones around and they offer true transparent hi-fi sound, allowing you to experience music to the full with all the freedom of cable-free listening.
