Summary

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless have a good audio quality and a sleek retro look. They are priced identically to the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, which deliver the best ANC you can buy. Like many ANC headphones, the Momentum Wireless add in a little bit of high-frequency hiss—it's not unpleasant, but it's noticeable.

Sennheiser's Momentum 3 Wireless headphones offer powerful active noise cancellation. The headphones use Bluetooth 5.0 and support AptX and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The ANC is less effective with office-related sounds like loud keyboard typing or nearby chatter, but it still does a solid job of bringing down the overall noise level.

  • Strong bass depth and high-frequency clarity
  • One-touch access to voice assistant

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless are decent noise cancelling headphones that have a good audio quality and a sleek retro look. These headphones are quite comfortable and have a decent noise isolation performance. These closed-back headphones leak quite a bit at high volume, meaning they shouldn't be used in very quiet environments with people surrounding you, as they could be bothered by your audio leaking out. While they have their pros and cons, they have both great noise isolation and their integrated microphone does a better job of making your voice clear.

Pros[**]
  • Good sound quality
  • Comfortable design
  • Good noise isolation performance
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre noise isolation

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless headphones cost $399.95 / AED 1,649 (around £280 / AU$500) Using the Tile app, you can 'call' your headphones any time you can't find them, which is a fantastic feature for forgetful types. The headphones' 17-hour battery life sounds rather good, but compare it to the 30 hours offered by Sony's WH-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, minimalist design
  • Tile tracking technology
  • Decent noise cancellation
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless headphones are a few notches below the best noise-cancelling headphones, including the class-leading Bose 700. The headphones boast three different ANC modes – Anti-Pressure (low), Anti-Wind (medium), and Max (high) – each one programmed to minimize a certain level of ambient sound. On-ear detection can automatically pause music whenever removing headphones from your head and resume playback when placing them back on.

Pros[**]
  • Class-leading sound quality
  • Great battery life
  • On-ear detection
  • Smart Control app
Cons[**]
  • Poor noise cancelation
  • Poor battery life

Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless are among the best noise-cancelling headphones we've tested in recent months. The flagship pairs in the now-iconic Momentum line have, alongside their extensive family of wired, over-ear, one-ear,. in-ear and true wireless siblings, reflected the range's ‘momentum' moniker perfectly. They collapse inwards to fit comfortably into a coat pocket or sit inside the supplied grey fabric case.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful, dynamic sound
  • Easy-to-use on-cup controls
  • Clear, transparent hearing mode
Cons[**]
  • Battery life could be better
