Sennheiser just announced the latest addition to its Momentum line of premium, noise-cancelling headphones. The new Momentum 4 Wireless headphones cost $349.95 and look very different from previous models, with the company trading its signature retro aesthetic for a lighter, more comfortable design. Sennheiser says the Momentum 4s offer “exceptional comfort” and superior active noise cancellation compared to the Momentum 3 Wireless. They can be pre-ordered on August 9 and will be in stores from August 23.

Aside from the revamped style, the other big selling point seems to be battery life. Sennheiser claims the Momentum 4s can achieve up to 60 hours of playback on a single charge, far exceeding the 20 to 30 hours promised by competitors such as Sony’s WH-1000XM5, Bose’s QuietComfort 45 and Apple’s AirPods Max.

The already great sound quality of the third-generation cans seems largely unchanged: both use 42 millimeter drivers tuned for “brilliant dynamics, clarity and musicality”. But the Momentum 4s should offer improved voice call performance. Sennheiser has also moved away from physical button controls and has used the same tap and swipe gestures as other popular noise-cancelling headphones. And while the new headphones can no longer be folded, they come with an improved case with hard shell protection.

Like their predecessors, the Momentum 4s support convenience features such as multipoint connectivity, wired USB-C audio and have replaceable ear cushions – now made from faux leather instead of the genuine leather Sennheiser used before. For Bluetooth codecs, the company’s latest headphones support AAC, SBC, aptX, and aptX Adaptive.

I’ve been testing the Momentum 4s for a while now and you can read our full review to get an idea of ​​whether their improved comfort makes up for the very generic design.
