Page 4 - Conclusion
To say my experience in San Francisco was marred by one event would be false, especially as I still had overwhelmingly positive memories there. Similarly speaking, I think the third iteration of the Momentum Wireless displays many areas of strengths for Sennheiser. From the very beginning, the build quality is quite frankly some of the best I have seen on a headset with its metal build, leather headband and earcups, and sturdy internal structure. With comfortable, well-padded earcups and headband, the Momentum Wireless was also a joy to use during my tests, even with my large head. Its folding capabilities may not result in the most compact final form, but I am still happy to see this implemented here. Other features such as active noise cancellation, Tile integration, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0, support for popular audio codecs, and voice assistant integration are just some of my favorite highlights. Other features like its automatic pause and ambient mode worked well in day to day use. When we get to the audio evaluation, the Momentum Wireless performed well for a pair of headphones tuned for general listeners. A solid and deep bass was matched with bright trebles and a clear, albeit slightly recessed, midrange to provide an enjoyable listening experience. In terms of things I think Sennheiser could work on, I would like to see a harder carrying case for a more solid bag to lug around. In addition, I would like to see improvements for a wider soundstage, even with its physical limitations, as well as reducing the sound leakage at higher volumes. Even so, these are small tweaks and not a large negative to pinpoint on the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless. At a retail price of $400 USD, the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless do also pack a punch on the wallet, but I think Sennheiser has delivered on an excellent wireless headset with many modern features to make this iteration of the Momentum Wireless worth getting.
