Ingress protection ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Beats Studio Buds's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Beats Studio Buds, Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
The Beats Studio Buds have a weight of 5.1g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to transport.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, at 10.6g weigh more than the Beats Studio Buds by of 5.5g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires linking any part of the device together, Beats Studio Buds are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is an important distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds together.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables connecting the two earbuds together.
Beats Studio Buds are resistant to sweat
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Beats Studio Buds have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Studio Buds have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. The Beats Studio Buds and Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 work with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that enhances your relaxation time.
The Beats Studio Buds sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces background noise and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, and Beats Studio Buds have passive noise reduction which implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Beats Studio Buds driver unit is 8.2mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 driver unit is 7mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Beats Studio Buds by 1.2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Beats Studio Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, this means that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 can make sound with a juicier bass than the Beats Studio Buds
Beats Studio Buds's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's highest frequency is at 21,000Hz, this means that Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 can produce a clearer and crispier treble than the Beats Studio Buds
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, in decibels, dB, Beats Studio Buds's measurement is 100.5dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's sound pressure level measurement is 107dB/mW. How loud a device is can be perceived differently by separate persons, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
The Beats Studio Buds's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's battery life is less than that of Beats Studio Buds by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Beats Studio Buds's case has a full charge of 16 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3's charging case has a battery life of 21 hours, more than that of Beats Studio Buds by 5 hours
