Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3: Premium earbuds launch with up to 28 hours of battery life and Hybrid Adaptive ANC for US$249.95
Sennheiser has revealed the Momentum True Wireless 3, successors to the second-generation model that the company introduced in March 2020. The Momentum True Wireless 3 arrives less than a week after the Sport True Wireless, a US$130 pair of earbuds aimed at those who like to listen to music while exercising. The Sport True Wireless will ship sooner than the Momentum True Wireless 3 and contain a few enticing features, such as Focus EQ and an Adaptable Acoustic system.
As expected, the Momentum True Wireless 3 has 7 mm drivers, billed as 'dynamic TrueResponse™' by Sennheiser. Moreover, each earbud has three beamforming microphones and a 77 mAh battery. According to Sennheiser, the earbuds should last up to 7 hours between charges but 28 hours with the 950 mAh charging case factored in. Unsurprisingly, the earbuds support Bluetooth 5.2, along with the AAC, aptX, aptX Adaptive and SBC codecs. Sennheiser adds that the Momentum True Wireless 3 delivers Hybrid Adaptive ANC too, as well as a frequency range of 5-21 kHz.
Elsewhere, Sennheiser has included Qi wireless charging support, customisable touch buttons and IP4X splash protection. Like other Sennheiser devices, the Momentum True Wireless 3 is compatible with the company's Smart Control app, available on Android 8.0 and iOS 13.0 or later. Incidentally, Sennheiser includes four ear adapter sets in the box, plus three ear fin sets and a USB Type-C charging cable.
While the Momentum True Wireless 3 features a few changes from its predecessor, Sennheiser has decided against including Bluetooth multipoint connectivity. For context, the Momentum 3 over-ear headphones offer such functionality, despite being released nearly three years ago. Sennheiser is already accepting Momentum True Wireless 3 pre-orders, as are third-party retailers like Amazon. Currently, Sennheiser is only selling the earbuds in Black and Graphite colourways. However, Amazon has stock of the earbuds in white, for some reason. All colours retail for US$249.95 and will begin shipping on May 10.
