Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 are well-crafted luxurious headphones with a retro-inspired design. The Matte steel arms, leather covered headband and memory foam classic rounded ear cups give them a very premium overall feel
  • Superb sounding pair of closed-back headphones with tight and direct bass, well-balanced mid-range, crisp and precise high-range, which is ideal for pop and hip-hop music
  • On-board microphone and physical controls to answer calls, skip tracks, adjust the volume, music play/pause, ANC on/off, Ambient mode on/off, Bluetooth pairing and connect to Google Assistant or Siri
  • Three different levels of noise-canceling (Anti-Wind, Anti-Pressure and Maximum) to block external sounds and provide immersive listening experience
  • Transparent Hearing feature reduces your music to a whisper and lets you hear the outside noise without removing the headphones
  • The steel arms with a sliding mechanism and well-padded ear cushions make these headphones much more comfortable to wear for long listening sessions even with glasses
  • Sennheiser Smart Control app to make EQ adjustments, enable Google Assistant or Siri, adjust Transparent Hearing and Active Noise Canceling levels, check battery status and track the headphones with built-in TILE technology in case you lose them
  • Bluetooth 5.0 allows you to seamlessly connect and switch between multiple devices
  • Battery life of up to 16 hours on a single charge plus fast charging function that provides up to 1.5 hours of playback with just 10 minutes of charging
  • If the battery runs out, Sennheiser's Momentum Wireless can still be used in passive mode with the supplied audio cable
  • Auto On/Off automatically turns them off when you fold the headphones and turn them on when you unfold them
  • Support superior-quality codec such as aptX, aptX Low-Latency and AAC for better audio quality

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Below average battery life of 16 hours, a little less than our expectations compared to other over-ear noise canceling headphones
  • Lack of headband padding puts pressure on the head and it starts to hurt after a while for some users
  • The controls are a little cramped and it’s a little difficult to distinguish which button you're pressing
  • Included soft carrying case only protects against scratches, but not falls and water damage
  • The audio cable does not have a built-in microphone and remote module, so you can't take a call or control music playback while using headphones in wired mode
  • A 2.5mm to 3.5mm audio cable instead of a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable means finding a replacement isn't that easy
  • Just black color, no other option that suits your preferences and style
  • At $400, Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3.0 are expensive Active Noise Cancelling headphones and most alternatives offer 80-90% of the same experience at less than half the price
  • The Sony WH-1000XM3 still offers better sound quality, while the Bose QC 35 ii offers better Active Noise Cancellation

Highlights

  • Advanced Active Noise Cancellation offers three modes to suit different environments
  • Physical on-board buttons to take calls, control music playback, select ANC levels, Ambient Mode on/off and connect to Google Assistant or Siri
  • Transparent Hearing mode let you enjoy music while still being fully present in whatever you’re doing
  • Genuine Leather crafted head strap and ear pads insure exceptional wearing comfort during long listening sessions
  • Sennheiser Smart Control app to create an individual listening experience
  • With smart TILE technology, you can locate your headphones in case you lose them
  • Auto off when you fold the headphones and Auto on when you unfold them
  • 16 hours of music playback on a single charge
  • Quick charge technology offers 1.5 hours of extra power with just 10 minutes of charging
  • Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX, aptX Low-Latency and AAC codec support
