For an immersive music experience with detailed sound quality, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 would be a better choice as they are highly rated for their overall sound quality and soundstage. They are also rated higher for use while exercising due to a snug fit and sweatproof certification. However, for calls and meetings, the Sony WF1000XM3s have a slight edge and also feature virtual surround sound, which the Sennheisers lack. If you frequently travel by air, both offer strong active noise cancelling, but Sennheisers are more portable. For gamers and those watching TV, the Sony's may be preferred, as they have lower latency. Give Feedback

Major HiFi

Alex Schiffer | May 2022
"With the Momentum True Wireless 3, Sennheiser cements itself yet again as one of the go-to brands for wireless sound quality. It has a fun and engaging sound signature that has great bass and a great stage, accomplishing what only some of the best Bluetooth earphones can, and that’s clarity."

Sound Guys

Lily Katz | November 2022
"Wireless earbuds are a dime a dozen, and the Sony WF-1000XM3 makes it easy to justify the cost. The design and comfort are good, and the connection strength is consistent. While the lack of aptX or LDAC support is a big drawback, DSEE HX processing improves low-quality audio files. If you want stylish active noise canceling (ANC) earbuds, the WF-1000XM3 needs to be at the top of your list."
