DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE OF SENNHEISER MOMENTUM WIRELESS 3
SENNHEISER MOMENTUM WIRELESS 3 is the most luxurious noise-canceling headset I’ve ever held. It just feels sturdy, sure but still neat and lightweight.
The headband uses 100% genuine leather which is precisely machined in each stitch combined with the extremely smooth ear cushion at the bottom. You have to touch your hands to feel how soft and meticulous of the headband on Momentum Wireless 3.
Momentum Wireless 3 frames can now also be folded down. It’s good to know that it’s made of metal and not plastic like other headphones. This will help Momentum Wireless 3 become extremely durable over time.
Traditional features of the Momentum line such as elliptical earcup, logo details are inherited but at a higher level. Stubborn black plastic earcup. This is the black color of the plastic used, not the color used by conventional coatings, so it will not peel or fade over time. The earcup tail is a striking detail of the Sennheiser logo that is strikingly shiny.
The entire control key, the connection port that the microphone is located in the right earcup. Moderate press force, placement keys are very easy to manipulate for right-handed people. For those who are left-handed, it will be a bit inconvenient for this design.
Earpad on Momentum Wireless 3 is very soft, has a moderate settlement. Naturally, this is still leatherette material but very thick and well finished. You need to note the durability of the earpad part depends on the frequency of use and storage conditions.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 impresses every time you put these headphones on. You will not have to press or brush any type of start switch. The headset automatically recognizes and turns on the power whenever you open the fold on the headband. An extremely convenient, smart and extremely sophisticated feature that I think every other headset company should learn.
The boot time of the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is amazingly fast. I tried connecting the headphone to my iPhone, from opening the hinge to the headphone reconnecting to the phone in just 2 seconds. No more waiting and opening, just like wired headphones, the sound is always available on Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 feels comfortable and comfortable to wear. The combination of a soft earpad and a soft headband makes the impact on the top of the head and ears very little. This will allow you to wear the headset for longer without feeling uncomfortable.
However, the close back design on Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is not very well ventilated. Therefore, if worn in an air-conditioned room or high temperature, it will feel quite hot and uncomfortable.
Active noise canceling on this headset is something not to be missed. Feel the immediate change in sound when you put on the headset. This headset is great if you use it in the office or on the train when you do not want to be disturbed. However, you need to be aware of when someone else wants to talk to you. My feeling about the noise-canceling performance on the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is good but not as excellent as on the Sony WH1000XM3.
You are listening to music and someone wants to talk to you. Surely you will have to stop the music on the phone and put the headset down, right. With Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3, when you put the headset down, the music will immediately stop. And put on your ear, the music will resume playing at the point you just stopped. Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless gives you uninterrupted listening experience.
Another thing that surprised me is the wireless delay of this headset. Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is equipped with the latest Bluetooth 5.0. Tested with iPhone 6s only Bluetooth 4.2 but the lag of the headset is only about less than 1/10s. It’s hard to believe but that is true for my testing. When watching videos on Youtube or my favorite movies, I sometimes forget that I am using a wirelessly connected headset. Image and sound synchronization is so great, there is no visual phenomenon that precedes the sound of cheap Bluetooth headsets. Even when playing games, Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3’s latency is so low that every shot or footsteps in PUBG do not miss a beat. I can assure you that Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is among the lowest latency Bluetooth headsets in the world today.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is equipped with not one but two accompanying support applications.
One is Sennheiser Smart Control – The app allows you to customize all the settings and fine-tune the headset. You can turn the sensor to stop playing music when you put your ear down. Switch between noise-canceling modes. Adjust Equalizer settings on the headset. Update firmware to fix errors for headphones.
The second application is Tile – Assistant for finding and locating smart headphones. If you leave the headset in the room and don’t know where it is, you can signal and the headset will ring and vibrate to indicate location. In the worse case, you can still locate the headset on the map with satellite navigation, a feature very rare on headsets with the same range.
In addition to being a great music headset, Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is also an extremely good headset for conversation. I tested the conversation on this headset by going out and making a call. The person on the other end of the line said that my voice was quite clear and clear even though I was surrounded by lots of sirens and the engine. On Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3, there is even a vibrating motor that announces the call just like on the phone. When you’re wearing a headset on your neck and connected to your phone, you won’t miss any incoming calls. A very useful and worthwhile feature.
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 also allows us to connect 2 devices simultaneously. If you use 2 phones, this will be an extremely effective assistant for the job. You can easily listen to music on one phone and still not miss a call on your other.
The first feeling when I pressed the play button on the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 was that I liked the sound of this headset. It’s not a bit of subtlety, so it’s very fun and easy to hear. The overall color tone of Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless is warm, smooth and quite balanced with the emphasis located on the bass strip.
Bass range: This is the sound range I think is the most impressive on Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3. The bass is deep, solid and very heavy. Looking at the sound graph, we can see that not only the mid-bass is pressed like regular headphones, but the whole bass range is also raised evenly, making the bass, although abundant in volume, is still very good and balance. This bass strip will play extremely well genres like EDM, Hip-hop or Pop genres. However, because of the moderate stopping speed, Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 will be slightly sticky and listen to tired music.
Mid-range: This is probably the headset in the Momentum series that has the best mid-range ever. The mid sound is quite thick, warm and smooth. Despite being a bit backward, the singer’s voice is still full, both male and female voices are well expressed. Instrument details on the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 are kept pretty good even though no high-end codecs are supported. In some stringed instruments such as guitar or violin, we sometimes find the sound is thicker and slower than it actually is. All of this will improve when you use the plug directly into the headset. The mid will be clear and the details of your music will be pushed higher.
High-range: The treble strip on Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3 is also shown very well. It’s not a jingle-like type of jingle that stops in balance with the other two negative bands overall. The tinkle still has but less quantity. Especially, it never makes you feel thorny or jarring.
Soundstage and visual: Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3’s soundstage stops at an average level. It is neither too wide nor too narrow due to the Close-Back design. In return, the depth of the stage is very impressive, the sound still surrounds the head. The visuals of the instruments and the singers are shown accurately and clearly.
Not showing off in terms of specs or technology like other headphone companies are doing, Sennheiser focuses on maximizing the user experience to the point of being asymptotic. All the most basic functions of a wireless headset are done too well on Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 3. The ability to connect as fast as electricity, almost zero latency, extremely good support for conversation and sound is will please a lot of people who listen to music.
