Sennheiser’s Momentum 4 Wireless Headphones Might Be Ideal for Commuters and Travelers

Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones Are Finally Here! In June 2022, Sennheiser teased the next generation Momentum Headphones, but are they worth the wait?

The Sennheiser Momentum 3 Over-the-Ear Wireless Headphones were released back in 2019 and became a huge hit for the company; the pandemic and acquisition of the consumer division of Sennheiser pushed back a number of new product introductions including the new Momentum Series. Sennheiser teased the new models back in June but provided very few details and only let the media and consumers see some rather vague images of the forthcoming product. The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless Headphones are finally here; the initial reactions have been mixed about the industrial design but very enthusiastic about the sound quality.

The Sennheiser Momentum 4 are an important product for the company because they face some rather stiff competition from Bose, Sony, and Apple and success here often trickles down into other categories. Commuters and people who travel a lot for work look at this segment with great interest because all of these models offer category leading ANC, superior sound quality, and foldable designs.

Core Features

As mentioned in our previous report and based on new information provided by Sennheiser, the Momentum 4 provides the following core features:

Sennheiser Signature Sound: Headphone construction, driver size, and placement are the foundation of the listening experience 

Customized sound: Built-in EQ settings, presets, sound modes, and Sound Personalization is included. 

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): This helps to reduce background noise so that music listening and calling remain clear.  

Transparency Mode: When users need to talk to others or hear surrounding sounds this feature lets them hear outside sounds through the headphones at a touch (sort of the opposite of  ANC).

Premium Comfort: The Momentum 4 features a new design that balances comfort and streamlined style. With a lightweight padded headband and cushioned earpads, wearing fatigue is greatly reduced. A low-friction hinge mechanism adjusts to 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.

Crystal-Clear Calling/Voice Assistant Interaction: Calls and voice assistant interaction is disturbance-free thanks due to advanced 2×2 digital beamforming microphone array and automatic wind noise suppression.

Smart Pause and Auto On/Off: This halts playback when the headphones are taken off and resumes when placed back on the ears. Auto On/Off powers up the headset when it’s picked up and shuts down to save energy when not in use.

Works with Sennheiser Smart Control App: iOS, Android

    Hmmmm…I waited and now the wait is over. No buttons means no thank you.

    For the greater part, “swiping” one’s finger over the surface of a headphone is, well, stoopid. I much prefer the ease of use that buttons provide. I know where they are because they are there. Capacitive “touch controls” on headphones are of no use for me.

    When I bought the Momentum 3s I found its ability to reproduce music (to my liking!) excellent but sent them and another Sennheiser offering along with the Sony XM4s back due to poor BlooToof performance.

    They couldn’t stay connected. I kept the Bose QC45s and use them along with my wired ‘phones to keep my spousal unit from getting upset when Grand Funk Railroad’s “Sin’s A Good Man’s Brother” is on.

    I will pass on the new Momentum 4s but may try another pair of 3s as who knows, maybe I got a defective unit. I also like the look of the 3s more than I do the 4s but still sent them back due to their inability to maintain a constant connection.

    Sennheiser makes some great ‘phones and I have three pair of their making and enjoy all three very much. Of the three, the RS195 are the only wireless and that being RF instead of BlooToof. They look cool and work just fine. No ANC but so what, I bought them knowing that and watching a film late at night I do NOT disturbe She Who Must Be Obeyed…

    Thanks for the look at the new Momentum 4s! I will give serious consideration to trying the 3s again as they were superior in their delivery of my music… much better than the Sonys and just a teensie-weensie bit better than the QC45s. \

    And they look bitchin’!

    Too bad they laid on the prevailing touchy-feeeeelie controls like Sony and Bose (700s) and ditched their retro looks. I had hoped Sennheiser would improve on their retro styling and instead they went lock-step with Sony. No, they are not fugly, they just do not stand out any more.

    I just returned from Best Buy where I picked up a brand new (not refurbished as the previous ones were) pair of Sennheiser Momentum 3.

    They are charging now and on the morrow I shall begin anew my assessment of them as they compare to my QC45s and my memory of the Sony XM4s and the Sennheiser PCX 550-IIs and the refurbished Momentum 3s.

    I hope brand new equates to a better experience this time. I like most Sennheiser products and am once again spending my own money to see if I can keep them this time! 🙂

    My initial impressions of the new in the box Momentum 3s is that they are far more stable than the refurbished pair I previously bought.

    But they cannot hold on to an amplified Bluetooth signal like the QC45s. The Bose can go much further throughout our home and down the street if need be. But the Momentum 3s still out shine the QC45in the reproduction of music. And yes, that is highly subjective and so I have no problem stating as such and recognize that it is nothing more than a personal, ego driven supposition.

    That and the 3s look really cool, especially so in the white colour I chose.

    No way I am buying the Momentum 4s. They have those silly touch controls and the only thing I can abide with those are my Bose sunglasses and with those, I use the touch sensors ONLY for adjusting the volume. That’s it.

    Buttons are superior to touch controls and while some might lay claim to that being a subjective observation I say it is borne out by objective use of both types of controls on full sized over-the-ear headphones. Touch sucks and buttons do not suck. Easy-Peasy-Mac ‘n’ Cheesy!
