The stylish MOMENTUM 3 Noise-Canceling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones from Sennheiser features smart technologies that are designed let you enjoy your audio in peace, but quickly interact with your surroundings when you need to. Three modes of active noise cancellation work to filter out ambient sounds that can be distracting, but with Transparent Hearing, you can listen while still being aware of what's happening around you.

With Smart Pause, you don't have to worry about fumbling with on-ear controls or your mobile device to stop the music. Simply take off the MOMENTUM 3 wireless headphones and the music pauses automatically. It will even restart when you put them back on. You can enjoy your music all day long with up to 17 hours of power, and the MOMENTUM 3 headphones have been crafted to be comfortable if you do. The earcups and headband are both cushioned and wrapped in genuine leather.

Find Lost Headphones with Tile

Sennheiser has incorporated Tile technology into the MOMENTUM 3 headphones to let you find them if they are ever lost or misplaced. Simply download the Tile app for iOS or Android and add your MOMENTUM 3 headphones.

Three Noise Cancellation Modes

Max: Provides maximum cancellation of ambient noise
Anti-Wind: Optimized noise cancellation for outdoor use
Anti-Pressure: Optimized noise cancellation for use in the home

Smart Pause

The music automatically pauses when you take your headphones off, and restarts when you put them back on. When folding the earcups open or closed, your music will turn on and off as well.

Hands-Free Calling

More than a simple pair of headphones, the MOMENTUM 3 wireless over-ear headphones feature a pair of built-in microphones. This means you can make and take phone calls hands-free when pairing them with a Bluetooth-compatible smartphone. The mics utilize beamforming technology to focus in on your speech for clearer conversations.

3-Button Interface

The 3-button interface built into the earcup of the MOMENTUM 3 allows you to quickly adjust the volume, activate Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri digital assistants, and switch between music and making hands-free calls.

Smart Control App

The Sennheiser Smart Control app has a built-in equalizer to let you adjust your listening experience, as well as activation buttons for Noise Cancellation and Transparent Hearing modes.

Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 Reviews

A near total waste of $350.

After a little over a year I am trashing this headset. The bluetooth has failed, the cable cuts in and out, useless messages are screamed into your ear, e.g. no connection when you are using the cable, and having to fold the headset to control the power are all absurd problems. I don't know where Sennheiser is coming from now, but it used to be a respectable brand. Not anymore. I'm going Bose.

I had the Momentum 2.0 before these, and the 3.0 is a big step up!

I use these headphone for listening to the TV and for connecting to my computer ... they connected up to Nvidia Shield quickly and also connected to my computer with ease (once I read the manual .. duh). The sound quality is excellent in my book. I am not an audiophile by any means, but I think they have great sound. Super easy to use, comfortable to wear .. if your head isn't too fat .. LoL!!

Best in class

I have gone through Sony, B&W and JBL on these wireless headsets. No matter what you read in ratings. These are by far the best sounding headset in both music and call quality. Don't fall for all the marketing. These are the ones you want. They really could not be better.

Great sound. Extremely painful to wear

I got these headphone for X-mas. Part of the appeal was the repair program Sennheier runs. My last pair of headphones were V-Moda Crossfade, which stopped connecting via bluetooth after 3 years. V-moda won't repair, only offers a small discount on another pair. Sennheiser's in-house repair center meant I could buy with some hope that I could keep these headphone for 5+ years. I really wanted to love them, but the band was so painful. It caused an immediate headache. I do not have huge head. I recommend trying them on in person first. They are excellent headphones with balanced, crisp sound.

Superior sound quality

I bought the Momentum 3 to replace an old headphone of mine. Before ordering, I tried quite a few different headphones either in stores or with my friends' headphones. The comfort level to wear and noise-canceling quality of the Momentum 3 have left some things to be desired, but its sound quality is definitely superior among its peers in the same price range. And sound quality has always been the #1 thing I'd consider when purchasing headphones. I particularly like its handling of the bass where Sennheiser has got it just right, unlike most other brands that exaggerate the bass too much. Setup and connecting to devices are easy. The app enables you to adjust the EQ but that's about all it does for me.

Stops working

After a year of very little use, the bluetooth function stopped connecting. It was always a little wonky, but now it will only work when it is wire-connected. Plus you have to fold them to power them off, which means the power drains if you fail to do that. Don't waste your money on this brand. I should have stuck with Bose.

Awesome

I finally got around to upgrading my Momentum 2 headphones after 10 years of heavy use. They were good the new model 3 is even better all around.
