Sennheiser MOMENTUM 4 Wireless Headphones Now Released

In what could be described as Sennheiser's worst-kept secret (thanks to a Canadian retailer loading the product on its website one week before release), we now have all the details on the long-awaited and highly anticipated MOMENTUM 4 Wireless headphones.

With a wide departure from the aesthetic of the previously released MOMENTUM Wireless 3 that we reviewed back in January 2020, Sennheiser says its new MOMENTUM 4 Wireless “raises the bar even higher, with best-in-class sound, advanced Adaptive Noise Cancellation and exceptional comfort”. If you judge a brand based on its prior achievements, then we have no reason to doubt any of this, and we've been putting a pair through its paces over the last couple of weeks, so stay tuned for the full review.

MOMENTUM 4 Wireless employs its “audiophile-inspired acoustic system powered by a 42mm transducer”, which the company says provides brilliant dynamics, clarity and musicality. Adaptive Noise Cancellation has also been updated to “next generation” for its release number four. It's understood the driver has been angled to ensure sound is channelled slightly from the front towards the user's ears, offering a more natural soundstage.

The advanced 2x2 digital beamforming microphone array and automatic wind noise suppression guarantees superior voice pick-up for hands-free communication while out and about.

Transparency Mode lets you hear outside sounds through the headphones with just a touch. The touchpad interface, combined with voice and sound prompts, make controlling music, calls and voice assistants intuitive and easy to navigate. Set up is also simple thanks to Bluetooth device management that allows multiple devices to be connected at the same time.

Sennheiser's recently updated SmartControl app makes it easy to customise the sound using the Built-in EQ, sound modes and the new Sound Personalisation feature. This assesses the user's listening preferences and adjusts the listening experience according to their taste.

Battery life has also been extended to a whopping 60 hours, while fast-charging capability provides six hours of listening time in just ten minutes. Auto On/Off also powers up the headset when it's picked up and shuts down to save energy when not in use. 

Comfort has been increased, too, promising all-day use without fatigue thanks to a new lightweight design and “richly padded headband and deep cushioned earpads”. A low friction hinge mechanism easily adjusts to guarantee a great fit without placing excess pressure on the user's head. The fold-flat design is also comfortable when worn around the neck and can be easily slipped into a bag or backpack in the slim case when on the go.

Sennheiser's highly anticipated MOMENTUM 4 Wireless will be available for preorder from August 9, 2022, and released officially on August 23, 2022, with a price tag of $349.95.

We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality.
