In the last few weeks I’ve tested a few new in-ear headphones in everyday life, including the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3. This was presented in April, you can find the key data in our old article.
We’re talking about an in-ear headphone that costs around 250 euros, although according to Idealo the price has dropped again and again in the last few days. Of course, it also depends on when you are reading this post.
The Sennheiser MTW 3 in everyday life
But how does the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 fare in everyday life? Good, very good even. The sound is convincing in all areas, is nice and loud, nice and clear with podcasts and the bass is powerful. The last point is important to me in sport.
The ANC is okay, not the best, but being an in-ear headphone that fits well and deep in my ear I’m happy with it. I have never been able to fully exploit the 7 hours of battery life, but I think it should be good in terms of my runtime.
The case feels high-quality and beautiful and can be charged via USB C and Qi, with the case there is then 28 hours of battery life. But here we are with my “little thing”, which doesn’t bother me massively, but isn’t optimal either.
Compared to other cases that I use on a daily basis, this one is very large and bulky. It’s not comfortable in your pocket. This is more compact. And the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 is not exactly a compact model either.
The headphones are relatively far out of the ear. It’s comfortable to wear, but not entirely comfortable compared to Sony’s new LinkBuds S or Jabra’s Elite 7 Active. Nevertheless, I am currently using this model in sports.
Only one thing bothers me in sports: touch controls. I understand some may like this, but I still use it to trigger incorrect actions, so I always disable the feature (when possible). I prefer a physical button.
My verdict on the Sennheiser TMW 3
A lot has happened with in-ear headphones in recent years, but you still have to cut back in 2022. They are small but there. Either you get better sound and ANC and slightly larger headphones, or you get a very compact model, but then you often have a disadvantage.
For example, the Sony model doesn’t sound that good and has very little bass, and with the Jabra, I honestly wouldn’t even put ANC on the box.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 convinces me here, but I’m not quite sure whether it will be my new number 1 for 2022. If it were a bit smaller and more comfortable, yes. I can recommend the headphones, but there is also a model from Sony (WF-1000XM4), which I think is a bit better.
Basically, it’s interesting to see how quickly and well this market has developed, my AirPods Pro have only been lying around for a few months. The competition is still there and stems have also become superfluous.
Sennheiser has delivered well and anyone who chooses the Momentum True Wireless 3 will be satisfied, I’m sure. In the end I realized that the fit is an extremely important factor and that is very subjective.
