Sennheiser’s latest ACCENTUM Wireless headphones have similar specs to the award-winning MOMENTUM 4 range, but cost $150 less.
According to Christian Em, Sennheiser Principal Product Manager, “ACCENTUM Wireless was developed to outperform their price tag, sharing much of the most desirable DNA of [our] MOMENTUM 4.”
Both sets of over-ear headphones have Sennheiser’s sleek and comfortable design, with the same 4-button layout Smart Control on ear functionality. Each has Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and uses dual microphone beamforming for noise reduction and Active Noise Cancelling.
The main differences come in frequency range, and battery life across the pair. ACCENTUM Wireless have up to 50 hours of battery life, while the pricier MOMENTUM 4 advertise 60 hours. The ACCENTUM Wireless has 37mm dynamic transducers which are slightly smaller than those on the MOMENTUM 4, this means that the ACCENTUM won’t get as loud as the more expensive counterpart.
Both the microphone and speaker frequency ranges are slightly narrower on the ACCENTUM. While the ACCENTUM range between 10Hz to 22kHz, the MOMENTUM hits between 6Hz and 22kHz meaning the bass should be a bit richer on the more expensive set.
The new ACCENTUM headphones will begin shipping in Q4 this year, and will retail for $299.95 from select retailers and directly from Sennheiser online.
