The AirPods Pro are great for Apple users due to their seamless integration with Apple devices, and they provide good noise isolation, comfort, and are sweatproof, making them suitable for exercise and travel. However, they may not be ideal for gaming or TV due to higher latency. On the other hand, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 offer a slightly better overall sound quality and a more customizable sound experience with their app equalizer. They are also good for Android users and have a longer battery life. However, they don't support wireless charging and may not be as portable as the AirPods Pro. If mic quality for calls is important, both have good microphones, but the Sennheiser has a slight edge. Consider your device ecosystem, audio customization preferences, and whether wireless charging or portability is a priority for you. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Adam Molina | January 2023
"For just $50 USD more than the original model with the wireless charging case, this is definitely the pair of buds to get. The AirPods Pro (1st generation) sounds better than the originals and has a way better fit and active noise canceling to boot. If you have an iOS device, just get this."
