Sennheiser has just announced their latest headphones with the Momentum 4.
Like past Momentum headphones, the new ones feature Active Noise Cancellation. However, the standout feature is the 60 hours of listening time with ANC on that Sennheiser is touting for the Momentum 4.
Similar headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM5/XM4s feature anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of listening time with ANC off.
“Our Momentum range has always set the standard for sophisticated listening with superior sound,” says Christian Ern, Sennheiser Principal Product Manager Consumer Headphones. “The new Momentum 4 Wireless once again raises the bar – delivering best-in-class sound quality with advanced Adaptive Noise Cancellation and exceptional comfort. Thanks to features including Transparency Mode, Built-in EQ and a new Sound Personalization feature, users can listen in their own customized way.”
There’s also quick charging to get six hours of listening time in 10 mins as well as a Transparency Mode.
One of the more noticable features of the Momentum 4 Wireless is a new design. The headphones feature a fold-flat design, a low-friction hinge and a padded headband and improved earpads.
On the audio side, the Momentum 4 uses a 42mm transducer that the company says “provides brilliant dynamics, clarity and musicality.”
The headphones also features a touchpad interface, multipoint Bluetooth, wired USB-C audio and replaceable earpads.
Pre-orders for the Momentum 4 Wireless on August 9th and ships on August 23rd. Pricing is $459 CAD ($349 USD) with two colour options, black and white.
