Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds are so good, I’m ready to ditch my favorite headphones – here’s why

SENNHEISER is one of the top names when it comes to headphones and after trying out the new Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds it’s easy to see why.

The German company has upgraded its popular wireless audio while focusing on evolution rather than revolution.

I haven’t tried the previous Momentum True Wireless 2 buds so I can’t compare the experience, but the spec sheet shows some decent tech improvements.

My main point of comparison are my trusty Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds, which I’ve used religiously for about three years – which I absolutely love and never leave home without.

But after you’ve taken a pair of Momentum True Wireless 3 for a spin, maybe it’s time to move on.

Here’s why.

Dinky design

First off, Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds are pretty slick and appear to be a bit smaller than their predecessor.

My first concern with small wireless earbuds is that they will easily fall out of my ears.

But no, I’m happy to say that they are actually very safe even when exercising in the gym.

This is thanks to a silicone ear flap that fits snugly and snugly in the ear.

I found they hurt my ear a bit after about 30 minutes but changing the bud size helped.

It comes in a really nice fabric case that looks the same as the previous one.

It’s the ideal size to fit in my pocket – unlike my current Powerbeats Pros which are too big.

One of the upgrades Sennheiser has made is the addition of wireless charging to the case.

It’s more of a nice bonus than a must.

fade away

I was blown away by the sound quality from these little earbuds.

They pack so much punch and the ability to customize the sound to suit your taste makes it all the better.

The app lets you crank up the base and other options to make your tunes burst with power without dominating the vocals like the base can sometimes do.

Things got even wilder with the base boost option, making some dance classics feel like a full blown party in my head.

Although I have to be really careful about turning the volume up too high for my hearing, it’s good to know that the sound can really be cranked up.

Coupled with the tight fit of the ear wing and the perfectly sized bud tips, the noise cancellation is really strong too.

I always use the nasty screeching of the London Underground to test things out in this department and I’m happy to say it blocked everything and kept me locked into my own little musical world.

The performance is right

It’s great that you can customize the touch controls through the app, although I’m quite happy with the default setting.

Speaking of controls, the sensitivity balance seems spot on, so any touches you make with your finger to pause, skip a track or adjust the volume are adequately recognized.

And on the all-important battery front, you can get a good seven hours of use from the earbuds on a single charge.

The case supports USB-C and will turn things back on pretty quickly.

In fact, the battery eventually ran out and I just plugged the earbuds back in for about five minutes and was able to listen to them on the tube for 25 minutes with no issues.

I had no problems with the Bluetooth connection when listening to music, which is ideal.

But I had some rare issues with music coming out of my phone just after I plugged in the earbuds, which never happened with my Powerbeats Pros.

You get what you pay for

At £219.99 a pop, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 don’t exactly come cheap.

But what you really get is a fantastic audio experience that proves you really do get what you pay for.

The sun says: The quality and performance of these little beasts made me want to ditch my longtime favorite audio device, that’s how much I rate the sound and overall quality.

And if the price puts you off, you might want to use the predecessor Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2?
