It’s been three years since premium audio manufacturer Sennheiser released the Sennheiser momentum 3 wireless headphones into the wild. Since then, we’ve seen the launch of two new Sennheiser earbuds – the momentum true wireless 2 and the momentum true wireless 3, the latter of which was launched earlier this year.

But it’s been so long since we last saw the over-ear momentum that we started to think the company had given up on its line of wireless headphones altogether. Of course it hadn’t.

Today, the company has officially announced the launch of the all-new Sennheiser momentum wireless 4 headphones. With a completely new redesign, 60 hours of battery life and improved active noise reduction, they will be available for pre-order starting August 9.

It’s already been a big year for wireless headphones, with the launch of the Sony WH-1000XM5 (£344.20, ) – our top pick for 2022 – and the premium Master & Dynamic MW75 (£549, .uk), which also made the cut. It will be interesting to see if Sennheiser’s new boxes make the list.

We’re not quite done reviewing the new momentum 4s yet, but if you’re interested in finding out how to pre-order them now and what features they have, come take a tour with us and we’ll explain it all.

The new Sennheiser momentum 4 wireless headphones are powered by a 42mm transducer, which the company says delivers “brilliant dynamics, clarity and musicality”. There’s a new streamlined, flat-fold redesign, with Sennheiser removing bumps and sharp edges to improve active noise cancellation, plus the headphones feature a new digital beamforming microphone array, which helps with wind noise cancellation.

In terms of features and controls, momentum 4 includes features such as smart pause, which stops playing music when you take the headphones off your ears, resumes playback when you put them back on, as well as an auto power off function, which turns the headphones on at a blink and turn them off when not in use. There’s a touchpad on the Momentum 4 wireless headphones, which lets you control the boxes with swipes and taps, and they also support multi-point connectivity, meaning you can quickly switch between devices.

You can also customize the sound to your own preferences using the built-in equalizer in the Sennheiser control app, and there are sound modes and a new sound customization feature. What audio personalization essentially does is assess your listening preferences and adjust the sound to your own personal taste.

Sennheiser says the headphones last up to 60 hours with active noise cancellation turned on, and a 10-minute quick charge will give you six hours of extra listening time.

The Sennheiser momentum 4 wireless headphones come in either black or white and cost £299.99. You will be able to pre-order them from August 9 and they will go on sale more widely on August 23.
