The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 wireless headphones don’t need a test to sell themselves… Barely launched, they have already met with great success among nomadic audiophiles. It must be said that the reviews of the various specialized magazines are quite complimentary towards him! So we had a mad desire to test it… Time for a good cup of coffee!
Wireless headphones with active noise reduction
The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 embodies the top of the German manufacturer’s range of wireless headphones. Proposed in its 3rd revision, it is still equipped with an active noise reduction (Active Noise Cancelling). It is activated via a button on the right atrium (the iOS / Android application allows many additional settings). Once in action, the ANC is very effective: it filters out most external sounds, creating a stunning feeling of isolation. In fact, a conversation a few tens of centimeters away becomes almost inaudible! You can of course turn off the reduction in the blink of an eye, and take advantage of a Transparent Hearing mode, on the contrary, letting all the sounds through. Other buttons are also integrated, so that you can easily control your music (volume, pause, etc.), but also answer calls and activate the actions of the voice assistant integrated into your smartphone.
Great comfort and very easy to use
Very comfortable, these Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 wireless headphones have large circum-auricular ear cups, and generate almost no pressure around the ears. APT-X Bluetooth pairing is done in no time, and you can count on very interesting functions. For example, the headset automatically pauses when you remove it from your head, and resumes playback on its own when you replace it. Designed to take on the urban jungle, it features a closed-back design to prevent sound leakage. In fact, your neighbors will still be able to perceive the music you are listening to, but in a much less significant way than with open headphones. On the other hand, if you want to cut yourself off from the world, the active noise reduction will do an excellent job, without however affecting the sound of the headphones too much, as is often the case.
The best sound in its class?
Hyper catchy, the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 makes you shake your head from the first bars. The sound presentation can be described as detailed and balanced. Everything is in place, there is impact and a surprisingly spacious soundstage for an enclosed model. The bass has a lot of weight, and shows great depth. The medium is rich, and the treble remains precise in all circumstances, without any aggressiveness. Capable of playing very loudly, the Momentum Wireless 3 always maintains excellent control over the music, including at high volumes. Wired listening further raises the sound performance: the headphones become more rigorous in the midrange and in the treble. Be careful, however, because it requires a smarthpone with a good headphone output to offer a suitable rendering. Our only real regret: some of the materials used are a bit plastic…
The most 🙂
– Best-in-class sound
– Effective noise reduction
– Excellent comfort
– serious look but somewhat “plastic” materials
– The cable that protrudes from the earpieces…
And that’s it for this quick test of the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 headphones. No need to go through 4 paths: these are the active noise reduction wireless headphones with the most beautiful sound of the moment. The B&W PX7 and Sony WH-1000XM3 are beaten on this point! However, these offer a slightly more attractive look…
The test was carried out with a Qobuz Studio subscription allowing listening in Hi-Res (24 Bits up to 192 khz). If you want to try it, we offer you a free 1 month subscription and a Hi-Res album. More info here.
