Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 headphones completely leak on Amazon – and their price is surprisingly welcome

0

Sennheiser’s next premium true wireless earbuds appear to have leaked on Amazon UK.

The highly anticipated Momentum True Wireless 3, which the German audio brand recently announced will launch this month, has made its way to Amazon. Although the headphones aren’t currently available to buy – the listing shows them as “temporarily out of stock” – the product page seems to shed a lot of light on the design and price of the Momentum True Wireless 3.

It is the latter that first attracts our attention. While the Momentum True Wireless 2 and the first-gen originals both launched at £279 ($299 / AU$499), the Amazon page lists the new third-gen iteration at £219.99 (about $279 / AU$499). AU$400). This not only lowers the previous launch prices of the Momentum model, but also, more importantly, that of the class-leading Sony WF-1000XM4 (which arrived last year at £250 / $280 / AU$450, although it is now available for £189 / $248 / AU$336).

With Sony and other best wireless headphone rivals such as the AirPods Pro and Bose QuietComfort headphones all closer to the £200 mark ($250 / AU$360), this price realignment could be Sennheiser appreciating that ‘it needs to be more competitive to stay on top of a market that’s as crowded as it’s ever been. And really, that’s great news for the consumer.

The listing also seems to reveal specs, such as aptX support Apdative Bluetooth, which is one of Qualcomm’s latest Bluetooth codecs on the market and essentially combines the sound quality of aptX HD with the low latency of aptX Low Latency. This trumps their predecessor’s aptX support.

According to the product page, the Momentum True Wireless 3 is next-gen adaptive noise cancellation which “monitors the level of noise in your environment to optimize noise cancellation performance”. Transparency mode returns, letting you hear surrounding sounds whenever you want. And sound customization via a “guided listening test” is also on the menu of these new generation Momentums. A choice of presets and an EQ function to personalize the sound are also available, presumably in the Sennheiser Smart Control companion app.

Sennheiser’s TrueResponse transducer is also central to the engineering of the Momentum True Wireless 3.

There’s some good news in the endurance department, too: battery life is still seven hours from the buds, but this time the charging case takes the total playtime to 28 hours from 21. time. Support for QI wireless charging is also a welcome inclusion.

The listing also shows the new Sennheiser buds coming in three color options instead of two this time, with white and black joined by a new graphite finish (top photo). The design of the headphones looks more or less familiar, although the Momentum True Wireless 3 seem to adopt the more angular shape of some of the company’s recent headphones, such as the Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless, rather than the circular housing of previous Momentums.

And that’s about it until we get official confirmation of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 and their availability. If the details provided on the Amazon listing turn out to be correct, which we think is likely, we could well be days away from hearing Sennheiser’s best and most competitive premium true wireless earbuds to date. .
