Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 4, Bluetooth LC3 and Auracast

Sennheiser presents the latest evolution of its Momentum headphones, True Wireless 4, packed with a plethora of audio technologies.

The Momentum True Wireless 4 headphones from Sennheiser incorporate most of the technical characteristics of the previous generation.

It still integrates, for example, Adaptive Noise Cancellation technology (active noise reduction), associated with the Transparency Mode function. This allows you to integrate ambient noise when listening to perceive a possible danger (horn or car engine, etc.), and even to actively participate in a conversation without needing to remove the headphones. Likewise, telephone conversations remain ensured by Beamforming technology based on three microphones responsible for optimizing voice pickup. The Sennheiser Smart Control application allows fine adjustment (equalization) of the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. Finally, these waterproof headphones (IPX4) are not afraid of perspiration and the Sound Personalization function optimizes listening with sound reproduction perfectly adapted to everyone's wishes. Of course, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 4 automatically turns off if not in use or stored.

However, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 4 improves the previous generation in many points, notably with some new onboard technologies such as Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound with Qualcomm APT-X (lossless wireless) or an ultra-low latency mode .

Bluetooth 5.4 compatible, the headphones even already have an eye on the future since a software update is already planned for Auracast compatibility (possibility of 'easy stereo or multiroom/multi-speaker pairing and almost unlimited in number) and Bluetooth LE Audio, the latter equipped with LC3 technologies (higher quality than the SDC codec at equal bit rate). On the hardware side, we note the integration of Qualcomm's RF Front End (RFFE) process and Sennheiser's TrueResponse transducers, as well as an improved antenna design for increased RF sensitivity, better signal-to-noise ratio, switching dynamic role, faster connections and improved signal continuity.

“Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 Sound Platform and Snapdragon Sound Deliver Superior Sound Experiences for Music, Calls, and Gaming , with lossless music streaming, ultra-low latency and solid connectivity, said Mike Canevaro, Chief Marketing Officer, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. We have a long history of working with the Sennheiser brand and are excited to see them integrate our latest Snapdragon Sound technology to deliver exceptional wireless sound on their latest Momentum True Wireless 4”.

Battery life is 7.5 hours extendable to 30 hours with the charging case, and an 8-minute quick charge provides 1 hour of additional listening. There is of course adaptive noise cancellation thanks to the six microphones, as well as an adaptive equalizer depending on the types of music pieces. Finally, note that the sound reproduction is customizable for each user via an intelligent adjustment test integrated into the Smart Control application.
