Wireless headphones continue to evolve rather slowly, but still with high quality. For example, the Sennheiser Accentum model can already offer some flagship features, while costing half of the Momentum 4.
And Sennheiser Accentum look very similar, although they have a simpler finish. At the same time, the comfort level is unlikely to differ in any way. And as we’ve seen from our own experience, Momentum 4 is a very successful model.
However, some characteristics of the novelty are still inferior to the manufacturer’s top offer, but the price tag should compensate for such differences. Sennheiser Accentum has smaller 37 mm drivers (not 42 mm, as in Momentum 4). However, the manufacturer still emphasizes the “similar sound” to the flagship.
This model also has support for working with the proprietary Smart Control application, which will allow you to customize the sound using a 5-band equalizer and offer presets prepared by the manufacturer.
Along with this, the Accentum has Bluetooth 5.2, which will provide support for aptX HD (576 kbps), and in the case of the iPhone, SBC and AAC. Multipoint connection support is also in place and controlled by the app. If necessary, the headphones can also be connected to an audio source via USB-C.
For conversations, the headphones have two microphones that should “fight” the wind while communicating on the street, and also support additional voice settings.
The specified battery life does not disappoint either. While the flagship model provides 60 hours of operation, the Sennheiser Accentum has a margin of 50 hours on a single charge. For comparison, the Sony WH-1000XM5 with noise reduction enabled lasts 30 hours, and AirPods Max – 20. At the same time, Accentum can replenish the battery for five hours of operation in 10 minutes.
The price of Sennheiser Accentum in the US is $180, and the model will go on sale on October 4. There is no information on the price level and availability in Ukraine yet.
