Reviewers from ndtv have found the following***:
At Rs 34,990, the Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless are among the most expensive pairs of headphones in the segment. While the brand and styling might help justify the price to some extent, the important thing here is performance. Regardless of whether we listened to streaming music or high-resolution tracks, the headphones sounded rich and detailed with pretty much every kind of genre we tried. The soundstage wasn't quite as wide and all-encompassing as we've experienced with other headphones in this price range.

Pros
  • Well-built design
  • Good active noise cancellation
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Sound leakage at high volumes

Sennheiser has equipped the Momentum 3 with a Transparency Mode for those moments you have to interact with someone, but don't necessarily want to stop jamming. When the mode is activated, all the ambient noise comes into the cans which, depending on how loud you're playing your music, can blend in rather amusing ways. The Bose 700 did a better job of keeping unnecessary ambient noises out which let me better focus on the conversation.

Pros
  • Great sound quality

The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless offer a wide sound stage with a lot of depth. They convince with their playfulness and differentiated reproduction and are at home in all genres. The active noise cancellation muffles low background noise very reliably. The voice quality is decent and the headphones can also be used well for telephony in quiet environments.

The Sennheiser Momentum Wireless offer powerful active noise cancellation. It does a great job of tamping down lows, mids, and highs. The transparent listening mode is quite effective, making it easy to converse without removing the headphones. The bass depth is fuller and richer when the ANC is on.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless feature decent noise cancellation. They don't block out as much environmental noise as rivals like the Sony WH-1000XM3 or the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, but you'll still be able to listen to your music in relative peace. With 42mm transducers, these headphones are made to replicate the "balanced depth and precision of a studio recording"

Pros
  • Gorgeous, detailed sound
  • Comfortable fit
  • Decent noise cancellation
Cons
  • Battery life could be better

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following***:
The Momentum 3 supports Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa. There is no power button or sleep mode, so I learned the hard way that the only method of turning them off is by collapsing them. The low volume levels make it difficult to communicate, especially in rowdy environments. Sennheiser makes up for its poor call quality is in wireless performance.

Pros
  • Sleek, retro design
  • Comfortable fit
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Mediocre noise cancellation
  • Poor call quality
