How good are Sennheiser Momentum 3 headphones

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless review - strong ANC headphones with good sound

The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless is very flexible in terms of connection options and can not only be operated wirelessly via Bluetooth, but alternatively also with a cord. This is by no means only intended as a stopgap solution. The jack cable can be locked so that it cannot be accidentally pulled out and even USB can be used as a player. Exemplary.

With the audio codecs for Bluetooth, however, we would have at least wished for aptX HD so that the Sennheiser headphones can play their powerful drivers even better. After all, aptX Low Latency is a codec on board that guarantees lip-synchronous transmission of films and the like.

The input elements on the right auricle are easily accessible and can be easily differentiated haptically. The clear pressure point offers enough resistance to counteract accidental inputs. It still takes a little time to get used to it, but the exact allocation can be looked up in the app at any time. Switching the headphones on and off is a clever solution, which is achieved by folding them together and unfolding them.

The free app is available for Android and iOS and is clearly laid out. Not only firmware updates can be imported into it, but also that Transparent hearing and ANC can be controlled and the equalizer can be adjusted.

Sennheiser states a battery life of up to 17 hours with activated Bluetooth and ANC. We tickled out almost 18 hours in the test, but without the active noise cancellation, with ANC the game time is still reduced to a good 15 hours.
