Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless3 earbuds sound so good, I’m ready for my favorite headphones to go. Here’s why

SENNHEISER is a well-known brand for headphones. After trying the new Momentum True Wireless 3 Earbuds, it’s clear why.

German company has updated its wireless audio products, focusing more on evolution than revolution.

The Momentum True Wireless 2 buds have not been tested yet so I cannot compare their experience. However, the specs sheet shows some good tech improvements.

My main point for comparison is against my Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds, which I have used religiously for approximately three years. I love them so much that I don’t leave the house without them.

After taking a pair Momentum True Wireless 3s out for a spin, you might feel it is time to move on.

Here’s why.

Dinky design

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds seem a little smaller than the predecessor.

Any wireless earbuds with a small size are my first concern. They could easily fall out of mine.

However, they feel very secure when exercising in the gym.

This is due to the silicon ear wings that hold tightly within the ear.

They did make my ear feel a little achey after 30 minutes. But, I found that changing the bud size helped.

It comes in a lovely fabric case which is exactly the same as the previous one.

It is the perfect size to fit in my pocket, unlike my Powerbeats Pros that are too large.

Sennheiser added wireless charging to their case as one of its upgrades.

This is a nice extra, not a must-have.

It’s time to sound out

These little earbuds were so loud that I was stunned.

They pack a lot of punch, and you can personalize the sound to your liking makes them even more appealing.

The app allows you to crank up the base and other options so that your tunes explode with power without affecting any vocals.

I was able to dance more with the base booster option. It made some of my favorite dance songs feel like a full-blown party.

Although I need to be cautious about turning the volume up too much for my hearing, it is nice to know that the sound can be turned up.

The perfect size bud tips and the tight fitting ear wing make noise cancellation very strong.

To test the waters in this area, I always resort to the horrible sound of London Underground. I am happy to report that it has blocked all noises, keeping me locked in my music world.

The earbuds charge super quickly

Performance is spot-on

While it’s fantastic that you can personalize the touch controls via your app, I’m not happy with the default setting.

Talking about the controls, it seems to be spot-on. The sensitivity balance detects all taps that you make with the finger to pause, skip or adjust the volume.

The earbuds can last for seven hours on a single charge.

This case supports USB-C, and can power up your devices again very quickly.

In fact, at one time the battery was dead and I was able to listen for 25 minutes on the Tube with no problems.

It was perfect. I had no issues with Bluetooth while listening to music.

However, I experienced occasional problems with music blasting from my phone after I connected my earbuds. This was not an issue with my Powerbeats Pros.

You get what your pay for

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

You get an amazing audio experience and you get it for a reasonable price.

The Sun says: I have been impressed by the quality and power these tiny beasts offer and am ready to part ways with my old favourite audio device.

For those who are not happy with the price, you might consider the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 instead.
