A few days ago we saw Sony gearing up to launch its next flagship headphone in the audio industry with the WH-1000XM5. However, its rival Sennheiser is not staying quiet. The firm today unveiled its new product in the market under the ‘Momentum’ brand. The new Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds come as an update over the previous models in the lineup with features including Sennheiser Signature Sound, TrueResponse technology and more. For now, Sennheiser has not yet announced its plans to launch the earbuds in India. However, you can get it from the US.
Coming in three colours – Black, Graphite, and White, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds is priced at $249.95 (roughly Rs 19,200) and will be available to purchase from May 10.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 Earbuds: Specifications
As the name suggests, it is the third entry in the ‘Momentum’ earbuds lineup. In terms of looks, the case of the earbuds looks similar to its predecessor – Momentum True Wireless 2. However, the shape of the earbuds is more rounded and curved from the corners. The biggest change in the case is that the USB-C charging port is now placed on the front side from where the case is opened. A charging indicator is also visible right beside the port.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 comes with a bunch of features. These include dynamic 7mm drivers that offer “deep bass, natural mids, and detailed highs,” as per the firm. It also gets adaptive ANC technology that automatically adjusts the noise-cancelling intensity based on the noise outside. Users, however, have the option to switch to the transparency mode to hear their surroundings.
In addition to these, the Momentum True Wireless 3 lets you create a custom profile for users while the Smart Control App lets you control the audio output by tweaking the audio presets and the equaliser. Some of the codecs supported by the earbuds are AAC, SBC, and aptX Adaptive codecs.
Besides featuring three microphones each on either of the earbuds for voice clarity during calls, the Momentum True Wireless 3 brings IPX4 rated water-resistant casing. As per Sennheiser, the earbuds are expected to deliver up to 7 hours of continuous playback while the wireless charging case can deliver up to 21 additional hours.
Competing With Sony WF-1000XM4
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 directly competes with the recently launched Sony WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds. Featuring the company’s V1 integrated processor, the 1000XM4 supports DSEE Extreme and 360 reality audio and has 6mm drivers. These might be a bit smaller than Sennheiser’s 7mm drivers, but the earbuds stay on top for its ANC performance. We are yet to see if Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 actually give 1000XM4 a run for its money or not.
