The Sennheiser Momentum 3 earbuds are about to be unleashed, so find out what makes these headphones so groundbreaking.

Audio quality

Sennheiser Momentum 3
First things first, there's nothing more important for a good pair of earbuds than audio. Sennheiser fans would never have any doubt that their favourite brand would bring the best quality, but if you have any scepticism, allow me to dispel it.

Sennheiser's True Response transducer once again proves to be one of the best in the game in the Sennheiser Momentum 3, while 7mm dynamic drivers produce enthralling audio, with punchy basslines and euphoric highs. If you haven't had the pleasure of enjoying your favourite music in a premium pair of earbuds, the Momentum 3s are a must-have.

Noise cancellation

Any half-decent pair of headphones boasts noise cancellation these days, so what makes the Sennheiser Momentum 3s different? Well, active noise cancellation utilises microphones to capture the sounds of the outside world, and prevent it from reaching your ears, meaning you'll never be disturbed by any external noise.

Sennheiser has also added adaptive noise cancellation to its earbud line, which digitally adapts noise cancellation to the ambient sounds around you. The Momentum 3s work brilliantly in low-volume listening sessions, which is a boon to your hearing health. And if you don't enjoy noise cancellation, Sennheiser has you covered with Transparency Mode.


Sennheiser Momentum 3

Music fiends need earbuds that sit comfortably in your ears during the most indulgent jam or concerto. The Sennheiser Momentum 3s do just that, with a lightweight, snug fit and multiple ear tip options.

On the go, they're sure to stay put, and an IPX4 water resistance rating means sweat and splashes alike are of no concern. The Sennheiser Momentum 3s are ready for anything you can throw at them.

In-ear controls

In-ear bud controls can be used to manage your media, answer calls or interact with your voice assistant, meaning you don't need to reach for your phone every few minutes. Additionally, in-ear detection means every time you pop your earbuds out, your music, podcast or audiobook will be paused, a convenient feature that saves power and time.

Smart Control app

Sennheiser Momentum 3
The Sennheiser Smart Control app goes above and beyond, offering advanced customisation for in-ear touch controls, as well as for sound with the Emotional Equaliser. Features like Transparency Mode can be accessed in this excellent app.

One really eye-catching function of the Smart Control app is Sound Zones. This allows you to set up sound preferences for up to 20 different "zones". For example, you may want to enjoy noise cancellation in your office, but activate Transparency Mode when you reach the train station. With Sound Zones, you can pre-set this change to happen automatically.

The future really is now.
