There are a few favorites among wireless full-size headphones, and Sennheiser’s Momentum is one of them. This is one of the options most likely to come up in a search or comparison if a buyer is looking for the best models. Today, Sennheiser has updated Momentum to its fourth version.
The updated headset received a new appearance. Previously, the headphone mounts looked quite original, adding “retro” touches to the decoration, which made the model easily recognizable compared to competitors. Also, the ear cushions are now made of artificial leather instead of genuine leather. The new design has become more modern, although it may not be as noticeable as before.
However, the manufacturer places special emphasis on the convenience of the new product. The design has become lighter and should be much more comfortable than the previous one. But now the headphones don’t fold up for transport, so it comes with a sturdier case that will probably take up more space in your backpack or bag.
Control was another novelty for the model. The company once again went the “modern way”, abandoning physical buttons in favor of touch controls.
It is noted that the Momentum 4 uses the same 42 mm speakers, so the sound quality is unlikely to change much (users mostly did not complain about the previous model). But noise canceling capabilities and conversational features need to improve.
As before, headphones can use wired connection. In wireless mode there is still the possibility of multipoint connection, there is support for AAC, SBC, aptX and aptX Adaptive codecs.
Also, the new model has significantly improved battery life, increasing it to 60 hours from a single charge. It should be noticeably longer than the standard 20-30 hours for similar models.
And this time, the Sennheiser Momentum 4 costs a little cheaper — $349. Pre-orders have already started, and the appearance in stores is scheduled for August 23.
