Sennheiser has unveiled its latest pair of over-ear headphones, the Momentum 4 Wireless. Replacements for the ageing Momentum 3 Wireless, the Momentum 4 Wireless promises to deliver excellent battery life, improved noise cancellation and better sound quality than its competitors. The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless is orderable in multiple markets now and will start shipping later this month.

Sennheiser has lived up to its claims that it would launch a new pair of premium wireless headphones in Autumn. Originally teased in May, the Momentum 4 Wireless dispenses with its predecessor's retro design, with Sennheiser moving closer to the Sony WH-1000X series, which is now on its fifth-generation model. In fact, the Momentum 4 Wireless mirror the Sony WH-1000XM5 in lacking foldable hinges. As such, the Momentum 4 Wireless has a much larger form factor than the Momentum 3 Wireless when not in use because it cannot collapse in on itself.

Additionally, Sennheiser has adopted touch controls while maintaining no physical power button. Regardless, the headphones feature 42 mm drivers with a frequency range of 6 Hz to 22 kHz. Supposedly, the headphones offer 'unrivalled sound', although that remains to be experienced until Sennheiser starts shipping units. Moreover, the Momentum 4 Wireless supports Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, as well as Qualcomm aptX Adaptive and Bluetooth multipoint with two devices.

Elsewhere, Sennheiser promises up to 60 hours of battery life from the Momentum 4 Wireless on a single charge, up from 17 hours with the Momentum 3 Wireless. For context, most other contemporary wireless headphones do not come close to offering these kind of runtimes, with the AirPods Max and Sony WH-1000XM5 barely managing half that. As expected, Sennheiser sells the Momentum 4 Wireless in black and white colourways. Incidentally, both are already orderable in multiple markets, including the US, where they retail for US$349.95. The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless will begin shipping globally on August 23, too.
