The Sennheiser Momentum 3 has numerous smart features. Their Title Tracking Technology feature is the foremost quality that distinguishes this pair of earphones from other noise-canceling headphones. This tracking system helps you to track down and find them when they are lost. Meanwhile, in this Sennheiser Momentum 3 Review, we have assessed the features and qualities of the headphones to determine if they are indeed worth the price.
Sennheiser Momentum 3 Review
Design and Build
There has been an upgrade to the Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless, and it now comes in the black variant. Additional variants will soon be available too. Momentum 3 are very expensive headphones apparently due to the Title Tracking Technology feature. The Momentum Wireless is indeed unique judging by its metallic hardware and sleek design.
The headbands are adjustable and are adorned with a pearl-filled stainless steel slide stationed with a logo-designed button. Some cables connect the headband with the earcups. Unlike Bose’s Headphones 700, these don’t have a fluid form.
They are foldable headphones, wrapped in sheepskin leather, hence not suitable for Vegan users. They have amazingly comfortable earcups to make them convenient to wear for a long period. They come with a beautiful carrying case made of fabric along with an aux cable for wired connection, a USB-C charging cable, and a USB-A adaptor. But fiddly buttons aren’t available.
Whenever you take the Sennheiser Momentum 3 headphones over your ears, the power buttons will be replaced with an auto on/off function. This works excellently because merely moving the head or adjusting the headphones could end the music that you are listening to. Hence, the function works perfectly, even surpassing our expectations.
The auto function enables you to use a multifunction button for playback. Besides, there is a switch that enables you to use the voice assistant and regulate the noise-canceling.
Sennheiser Momentum 3 Performance and Sound
These headphones are different from others mainly because of the Title Tracker. The title app allows you to track your headphones when you lose them. The function works well when you download the app to your phone and connect it. You’ll see the Sennheiser Momentum 3 headphones vibrating and loud when ringing. Now, you can use SIRI and Google Assistant with the feature. Alexa will soon be enabled. The battery lasts for 17 hours of playback, unlike Sony WH-1000XM3 which delivers for 30 hours. But the battery will last you for a week of commuting while in use.
We didn’t encounter any issue while pairing the Momentum 3 Wireless with our phone using the Sennheiser Smart Control app.
The application allows you to control the noise-canceling settings. Besides, the NC blocks out noise, though not as effective as the WH-1000XM3. You can however enjoy your music peacefully and control it using the Anti-Wind and Anti-Pressure mode. Also, there is a Transparent Hearing mode that gives room for ambient noise. We discovered that the mode works well when the ANC is off.
The Momentum 3 Wireless is compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and various codecs. We didn’t encounter any connection dropouts or lag while watching videos. To make the sound natural or get a punchy bass, you should just adjust the sound quality with the EQ.
You’ll get a clear and harmonized sound while listening to the vocals. The piano chords are warm. The cascading bass tunes won’t overwhelm you.
When you are listening to resonant bass frequencies, you’ll observe that it is bulging around the vocal harmonies but industrial beats slide around the open large soundstage. So, Sennheiser Momentum 3 is highly recommended if you are searching for headphones for complex vocals. They have excellent sound and amazing clarity.
You’ll enjoy this pair as one of the best noise-canceling headphones if you travel often. While they have a good battery, the NoiseGars offers you maximum isolation. They are great for making calls. They also come with a 2-year warranty. And you have the Title track to trace your earphones in case you lose them.
Final Thoughts on Sennheiser Momentum 3
The latest Sennheiser Momentum 3 headphones offer you awesome sound quality. The earphones are stunning and they deliver great details, warm bass, and natural highs. Lastly, the NC is customizable. It works fine, though the Sony WH-1000XM3 is more preferable in terms of effectiveness.
