A year after the launch of the Sennheiser Momentum 3, Sennheiser is back with the Momentum 4 Wireless. The new circumaural headphones have a design farther away from what we have seen in previous models and closer to proposals from other brands, such as the Sony WH-1000XM5, as well as comfort and, above all, autonomy.
And is that the new Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless offer up to 60 hours of battery life, a quite important promise and that puts them above their main competitors. We will know them better below, but not before noting that its price is $349.90, which can be booked now and will go on sale on August 23.

The promise of comfort and autonomy
The Momentum 4 Wireless completely changes the design of the Momentum 3 Wireless to offer a sleeker, but also somewhat more generic design. The headphones are “lightweight” (although the firm has not disclosed the weight) and feature a “very padded” headband and ear pads. The low-friction hinge mechanism allows the position to be adjusted without having to use too much force and, of course, the headphones are foldable.
It is striking that the new headphones now lack buttons. Instead, Sennheiser has opted for a touch interface with gesture control. The only buttons available are for turning on the headphones and pairing them via Bluetooth. Everything else is done via touch and gestures.
In terms of sound, the headphones have a 42-millimeter transducer, connect via cable or Bluetooth 5.2 to the cell phone and support SBC, AAC, aptX, and aptX Adaptive codecs (279-420 kbps). They also have active noise cancellation, ambient mode, and noise cancellation in the microphones, arranged in a 2×2 matrix.
Finally, and regarding the battery, the headphones have a 700 mAh capacity and promise, according to the company, up to 60 hours of autonomy on a single charge. The fast charging system allows you to get, says Sennheiser, up to six hours of listening in just ten minutes. To save battery life, the headphones have automatic on/off.
