Now that summer is over and fall is officially here, I have been working hard to rid myself of excuses and finally get back in shape. For me, the most high priority task is to get walking. Since it’s the perfect weather (not too hot or too cold), I want to start walking every evening, so I’ve been researching the best wireless headphones that I can use to keep me motivated as I go.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I get my best workouts in when I can listen to music or enjoy a podcast or audiobook. But often I’m trying to exercise when my kids are asleep or when I’m somewhere I can’t easily blast some tunes.
I have a sad drawer in my kitchen which is full of the ghosts of headphones past, with various types of ear buds, tiny speakers and even some not-so-helpful noise-cancelling headsets. None of them have done what I needed them to do!
At some point in the past, my husband tried to surprise me by buying me a nicer (read: more expensive) set of headphones, and while the thought was lovely, the reality is that as soon as I saw them, I knew they were no good. These things were the ugliest headphones I’d EVER seen. Huge and bulky, a weird color and just not wearable. Now, I’m not the most high-fashion of folks, but like…. style matters!
But aside from the truly unpleasant look of these things, the sound quality just wasn’t there for me. One of my all-time favorite albums to listen to is Pearl Jam’s “Binaural.” And as the name suggests, it’s best listened to on a high quality set of headphones that has perfect sound from both sides. It doesn’t seem like a tall order… but believe me when I say, I’ve had many issues!
So after many years of disappointment, I recently came across Sennheiser’s new M3 Momentum Wireless headphones. And these things are LEGIT, ya’ll.
Let’s dig in a bit so you can see just why I feel like I’ve finally found the perfect pair of headphones.
First up, let’s talk style. Unlike the ugly set my husband once bought me, these things are sleek, stylish and very modern.
They come in two colors – Black and Sandy White. They’re not garish or overly styled. Simple, classic and will genuinely look good no matter what you’re wearing.
As for sound quality? These promise superior sound, and they really deliver! They reproduce the balanced depth and precision of studio-quality sound. You can HEAR the difference!
There are a ton of features that make it exceptionally special for someone like me.
Auto On/Off and Smart Pause
This is so cool. With these headphones, if you remove them from your head, it automatically pauses your music. Slip them back on to start up again!
You can even turn your music on or off just by folding up the headphones! This is a small miracle to me, as my most current headphones keep dying because I think they’re off when they’re not. I love that these ones are truly automatic!
Active Noise Cancellation (3 modes) and Transparent Hearing
MOMENTUM Wireless adapts to your environment. If you don’t know what that means, let me explain – wherever you are in the world, whatever you’re doing, the advanced Active Noise Cancellation will keep you from being bothered by outside noise.
But fear not! You won’t be missing out on anything because the Transparent Hearing feature means you’ll still be aware of your surroundings while enjoying your tunes! AMAZING.
There are also three modes of noise cancellation instead of one mode fits all like most headphones.
Max: The Max mode offers Maximum Mode Cancellation (Airplane)
Anti Wind: Provides noise cancellation optimized for outdoors
Anti Pressure: Softer noise cancellation for at-home use
Three Button Interface
I’ve had headphones that make it very difficult to switch between music and phone calls or even between raising and lowering the volume!
Sennheiser’s 3-Button Interface makes it simple and intuitive to operate your headphones without having to remind yourself every time.
There is so much more I could list about the form and function of these headphones, but suffice to say they are the perfect thing for moms like me who need to “get in the zone” while still keeping track of what’s going on around her.
I can’t recommend these enough, and I hope you’ll find them just as amazing as I do!
The Sennheiser M3 MOMENTUM Wireless headphones can be found at Best Buy online or in-store!
If you love innovative technology or are an audiophile like me, you definitely need these in your life!
