We’re no stranger to Sennheiser’s products, and we always enjoy sharing new content with our readers about the audio company. In the past, we have reviewed several other wireless earbuds, but also professional studio headphones, as well as the Flex 5000, which helps people with different degrees of hearing loss. Now, however, we were lucky enough to receive a review model of the new MOMENTUM True Wireless 3. The MOMENTUM line of products has been loved by many, and those who have an older model couldn’t wait to see what the new one had in store. We tried out the new MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 for several weeks, and we were very impressed.

Design

The design is pretty similar to other Sennheiser products, such as the CX Plus True Wireless, albeit with a few more premium touches. The Sennheiser logo is a lot less flashy, and actually blends in better with the design of the earbuds. The shape of the case is very much the same, but the exterior is completely different. The best way to describe the case of the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 is to compare it with the fabric of high-quality jeans. Of course, the case itself is still made out of sturdy plastic, but the outside looks very classy with a denim-like texture.

Comfort

In terms of comfort, these new Sennheiser earbuds are very comfortable and pleasant for longer sessions. The package comes with some adjustable adapters, which are different rubber ear-tips in different sizes. This will allow you to pick the size that is the most comfortable for you, and also the one that fits the best. On top of that, there is also a bundle of different ‘ear fins’ included, which are small rubber bands that go around part of the casing of the earbuds. This will make it so that the earbuds rest more comfortably in your auricles. We loved the inclusion of the ear fins, as the subtle differences in size did make a difference as to how snug the earbuds fitted in combination with the different ear-tips.

As mentioned above, the earbuds come in a great protective case. This case will also serve as a way to turn your earbuds on or off. On top of that, the case holds several charges for your earbuds, which is also a great plus if you’re on the go with no access to a power source. Charging the case can be done via a USB-C cable, or via wireless charging. The latter is still not something that everyone has, but it’s a great addition nonetheless.

Specs

  • Powerful bass
  • Adaptive ANC
  • Qi wireless or USB-C charging
  • IPX4 splash resistant
  • 28 hours battery life (7 hours playback time, 21 hours on-the-go charging)

Overview

As was the case with the previous Sennheiser earbuds we tried, the MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 is also a ‘plug-and-play’ device. You simply pair the earbuds with the device of your choosing, and you’re good to go in mere moments. The earbuds will connect to your phone, or other media device, when you take them out of the case and they will immediately turn off when you place them back in the case. This means there is absolutely no hassle involved to get these earbuds to work. The earbuds snap in place perfectly, and only rarely you will have to slightly adjust them in the case to make sure they will turn off. We only had this tiny issue twice, when we were in a rush.

Controlling the earbuds is pretty much the same as it is with other Sennheiser devices. You’ll have to either tap the left or right earbud in order to pause or play, tap and hold to raise or lower the volume, and so on. We do have to say that these earbuds are very sensitive, and when you have to readjust their position it’s easy to press the pause button. This is only a slight inconvenience. If you have found the right size of ear-tips, you won’t have to do that much adjusting.

Over the years we have tried several types of wireless earbuds, and while most serve their purpose, there is a clear difference in sound quality. Some models focus on comfort while exercising, while others find it important to be affordable but still very decent. The MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 focuses on a true cinematic experience all compressed into tiny earbuds. The sound quality is amazing, the bass is deep, and the surround sound is top-notch. Even though these earbuds are great for your daily commute, they are also amazing for watching your favorite movies and series.

Conclusion

Sennheiser’s MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 is a superb audio solution, whether you’re just commuting or watching your favorite movie. The earbuds will put you in the middle of the action and with its 28 hours of playback time (includes battery charges of the case), you’ll be able to binge-watch your favorite shows for many hours on end, or you can finally dive into your Spotify list. We very much liked the design, the added ear fins were a pleasant bonus, and with the wireless charging and noise-canceling features, we couldn’t wish for anything else. Be warned though as all of this comes at a premium price, but it’s a solid investment.
