Sennheiser has upgraded its Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds via a firmware update, available via the Smart Control app for Android and iOS, to add both high-resolution sound mode and multipoint device connectivity.
“Our latest update reflects the dynamic ways people want to use Momentum True Wireless 3, including our most-requested feature – multipoint,” says Frank Foppe, Sennheiser True Wireless Product Manager. “For example, one can switch from their favourite music streaming app to join an incoming conference call from their laptop – and back again – without having to reconnect manually. And our new high-resolution sound mode enhances the listening experience even further, letting customers enjoy wireless audio that rivals the rich and lively detail found in a wired connection.”
The latest update allows you to switch between two paired devices for dynamic management of active connections. Additional examples include streaming a podcast on a smartphone before switching over to an incoming video call, shifting from a television series on your tablet to a mobile voice call, and balancing voice calls between work and personal phones. Multipoint also switches back to the original audio source device if a call is answered mid-stream, and otherwise allows for seamless switching between two Bluetooth audio devices. The multipoint update also allows for seamless switching through all mutually supported codecs, such as aptX Adaptive, and SBC, even across mobile operating system platforms from various manufacturers.
Meanwhile, the new high-resolution sound mode features 24-bit depth and 96kHz sample rate capability. When the Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds are connected to an audio source also using the aptX Adaptive codec, this mode increases the Bluetooth bitrate up to 420 kilobits per second for optimum sound.
In RF-challenged environments, such as on public transportation, the Momentum True Wireless 3 may use the codec’s data scaling capabilities to seamlessly adapt the connection integrity at any given moment. You can enable the high-resolution sound mode via Sennheiser’s Smart Control App.
Multipoint and high-resolution mode are available after updating the Momentum True Wireless 3 to the latest firmware (Release 2.10.19 or higher) and updating the Smart Control App (App Store, Google Play; release 4.1.5 or higher). The release also contains numerous optimizations and enhancements for Bluetooth and touch control features.
