Gone are the visible cables, and the metal hinges and leather exterior have been replaced by a simpler plastic design with ear cups that swivel flat when stowed. It has been removed in favor of a gesture-responsive touch panel on the right cup. Sennheiser says the headphones have a transparent mode and improved adaptive noise cancellation (his quoted 60-hour battery life is with ANC on).
Sennheiser begins shipping fourth-generation Momentum wireless noise-cancelling cans this week, challenging Apple, Bose, and Sony in the hotly contested premium ANC headphone market. The Momentum 4, which gives him 60 hours of playback on a single charge, is a complete redesign of the company’s flagship his Momentum series, with more comfort and less “jamming.”
Momentum 4’s Multipoint, on the other hand, connects two devices simultaneously. B. An iPhone for music, his Mac for video calls, and headphones in a redesigned hard case.
Sennheiser’s Momentum 4 headphones come in cream and black and are currently available for pre-order on the company’s website for $349.95 ($50 less than his Momentum 3 at launch). Shipping will start on Tuesday. They go up against Apple’s AirPods Max ($549), Sony’s WH-1000XM5 ($399) and Bose 700 headphones ($399).
It has a quick charge function and can be used for 6 hours in 10 minutes. The headphones also have an auto-off feature that activates when you take the can out and turn them back on when you pick up the can. According to Sennheiser, the new 42mm transducer system inside offers “great dynamics, clarity and musicality” and users can customize their audio experience with his onboard EQ, presets, sound modes and new sound personalization features.
