Wireless Earbuds

I recently purchased the Cardo Packtalk Slim, only to find out that it cannot be fitted (without internal carnage) to my favourite Hedon helmet...gutted.

Anyway, Cycle Gear were awesome and took it back even after I'd had it for a month, so +1000 user points to those guys.

I wasn't sure what to do next, so I did a bit of research on Wireless headsets and decided to take a different route, with a focus on audio first, everything next.

My search brought me to the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless earbuds. I picked them up this weekend and had a little time riding with them in, I've also set my phone to auto-answer after 3 seconds and send it to the bluetooth headset (I'll update you after my first call in the ride).

WWoooah, the audio is amazing, really crisp and clear in all the ranges.

My first ride to work with them this morning was great.

PROS
+ Amazing audio quality
+ 3hrs 45mins play time
+ Holder box is a charger with x3 charges in it
+ Good for workouts and long travel when NOT on the bike
+ Work as ear plugs, so reduces wind noise
+ Transparent mode allows some audio in for awareness
+ Has a mic built in (haven't used it during a ride, yet)

CONS
- No external helmet controls (set to auto answer as a back up)
- Initial ear soreness, but that has gone away now
- Doesn't completely blockout wind at top speeds

I'll add more as I get more time with them.

Cheers,
H

Very cool. Sennheiser makes great stuff for sure.

I have a pair of Boss QuietComfort35s I use for when I mow the lawn. This is the 1st pair of wireless headphones I have ever had and I'm not all that impressed with then mainly because they have a tendency to cut out and lose connection with my phone (sucks listening to a great song that's all broken up), which is in my pocket while I am mowing. The noise cancelling works very well though.

Sennheiser make awesome speakers/ear buds.
Up until now, I’ve only used their wired in-ear speakers, but after reading this I think I’ll give these a try too.

Is the physical size small enough to easily put a helmet over your head/ears without moving them completely out of place?
In the video, it looks like they protrude quite a bit. Maybe even too much??

Until now, the smallest in ear Bluetooth speakers I’ve found (and love!) are the Flare Audio Pro speakers. Absolutely amazing sound.

I have experienced a couple of momentary cut-outs, but I was streaming in a hiking area with spotty mobile connection. Didn't have any problems on the ride this morning.

They do protrude a little and my helmet is a very snug fit. I don't have much problem putting it on, but one did come lose while taking the helmet off, but I may not have put them in properly.

A photo of them in your ear would be very helpful, if you donít mind.
Also, are you able to turn them on and off ? Or do they always remain ďonĒ and in standby?

Can't turn them on/off in the helmet, unless I can access my phone or watch.

The earbuds have are touch sensitive:

Hold Left or Right = Volume Up or Down

The Left side controls audio:

1 Tap = Play/Stop
2 Tap = Next Track
3 Tap = Previous Track

the right side controls calls:

1 Tap = Answer/End Call
2 Tap = Reject Call
3 Tap = Rejects Incoming (while in a call)

Sorry for bad lighting and couldn't find how to delete the oddly orientated images.

When you put them in their case, they auto-turn off and stop audio if you remove one of them.

THANK YOU for the pics. They help a lot.
If you can fit a Hedon over them, then they should be fine with an AGV X3000 too.

I just went with the inexpensive Samsung Galaxy Buds and they're great. The don't seem to protrude as much as the Sennheiser's and I have no issues using them with my Bell Rogue helmet

Going to do a little more in depth research during the week.
Thanks for sharing and reviewing the speakers.
