Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless: Retailer leaks new design, 60 hours of battery life, Qualcomm aptX Adaptive support and a lower launch price
Canada Computers & Electronics has listed the Momentum 4 Wireless, the sequel to the ageing Momentum 3 Wireless. Teased by Sennheiser in May, the company stated that the Momentum 4 Wireless would be available in August. In other words, Sennheiser could only be a few days before it formally announces the Momentum 4 Wireless. Regardless, Canada Computers & Electronics has leaked the headphone's design, colour options and specifications.
As expected, Sennheiser has redesigned the Momentum Wireless for the fourth-generation model. For some reason, Sennheiser has mirrored Sony by moving away from a foldable design. While the Momentum 4 Wireless can fold flat, its ear cups cannot hinge to create a more compact profile when storing them away. As such, the Momentum 4 Wireless comes with a larger carry case than its predecessor.
Additionally, Sennheiser appears to have included touch controls this time around, eschewing the Momentum 3 Wireless' button-heavy design. Separately, images of the headphones' box confirm the inclusion of adaptive noise cancellation (ANC), Qualcomm aptX Adaptive support and a battery that provides up to 60 hours of battery life. For context, the Momentum 3 Wireless offers up to 17 hours of battery life. Also, the Momentum 4 Wireless will be capable of outputting at 96 kHz and 24-bit at 420 kbit/s.
Incidentally, Canada Computers & Electronics has priced the Momentum 4 Wireless at CAD$449.95. In comparison, the Momentum 3 Wireless launched in Canada for CAD$529.95, although Sennheiser currently sells the headphones for CAD$369.95. Presumably, this means that the Momentum 4 Wireless will be cheaper in other markets than its predecessor too. If that is the case, then we would expect Sennheiser to price the Momentum 4 Wireless at US$349.95 in the US and £299 or £309 in the UK.
