Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 Review: Sony Has Competition
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds are here, and they’re aiming to give Sony’s WF-1000XM4 a run for their money. In this review, we’ll put these two audio titans head-to-head, comparing their sound quality, battery life, design, and additional features. Let’s see if Sennheiser can stake its claim in the competitive world of true wireless earbuds.
Design and Comfort
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 boast a sleek design with a touch-sensitive outer surface, allowing for seamless navigation through your audio controls. The earbuds come with various sizes of silicone ear tips to ensure a comfortable fit for users with different ear sizes. While the design is relatively similar to that of the Sony WF-1000XM4, the charging case is slightly larger which may affect portability for some users.
As expected from a renowned audio company like Sennheiser, the Momentum True Wireless 3 delivers exceptional sound quality. With deep bass, clear mids, and crisp highs, these earbuds are suitable for music lovers of all genres. They support ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) technology which can be fine-tuned through the companion app to suit your preferences. The customizable EQ settings in the app make it simple to find the perfect balance between bass, mids, and treble.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 provides up to 7 hours of playback on a single charge and up to 28 hours of total playtime when using the charging case. While this is slightly less than that of the Sony WF-1000XM4 (8 hours per charge and 32 hours total), it still ranks as one of the best battery performances among true wireless earbuds.
Connectivity and Additional Features
Featuring Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, the Momentum True Wireless 3 ensures a stable connection with a wide range of compatible devices. The IPX4 water resistance rating makes them suitable for workouts and use in light rain. The earbuds support Quick Charge functionality, allowing for 1.5 hours of playtime from just 15 minutes of charging.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 has successfully proven that it can compete with Sony’s WF-1000XM4 in terms of sound quality, design, and battery life. While the slightly larger charging case and marginally shorter battery life may give some users pause, the overall performance of these earbuds is impressive. For those seeking high-quality audio and customization options in a sleek package, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 is an excellent choice.
