- State-of-the-art technology and outstanding sound are the two most important features of the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4.
The Sennheiser MOMENTUM Series is clearly one of the most important product lines from Sonova Consumer Hearing GmbH, the specialist for headphones and soundbar systems under the Sennheiser brand. Accordingly, it is clear that the company is placing the presentation of the latest in-ear headphones in this product series at the centre of its presence at CES 2024 in Las Vegas.
According to Sonova Consumer Hearing GmbH, the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 is set to differ from its predecessor with more than a dozen improvements, offering customers an even better sound experience.
Further sharpened sound profile for the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4
The new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 has a further sharpened sound profile, according to the manufacturer about its latest solution in the true wireless in-ear headphones sector, which is even referred to as the Sennheiser brand’s most powerful earphones to date.
Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 Sound Platform as the basis
At the heart of the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 is the so-called Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 Sound Platform from the specialist Qualcomm Inc. This SoC (Silicon-on-a-chip) is in turn based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform and thus combines a number of important functions, such as data transmission using the latest Bluetooth module and various DSP algorithms. Accordingly, the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 naturally also relies on Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound Technology, which is part of this platform.
From a purely technical point of view, the main component of the new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 is a Qualcomm QCC5181 WLCSP, which is designed as a 32-bit programmable CPU and also features the Qualcomm Kalimba Programmable DSP.
When it comes to signal transmission, Bluetooth 5.4 is available here, including LE Audio and Auracast Broadcast Audio. The signal is transmitted using the SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX Adaptive, aptX Lossless or aptX Audio codecs.
Integrated adaptive noise cancellation
It should also be emphasised that active, adaptive noise cancellation is also offered here using Qualcomm Active Noise Cancellation Technology, which is part of the platform.
Best voice quality for phone calls thanks to Qualcomm aptX Voice Technology
This also applies to Qualcomm aptX Voice Technology, which is based on three microphones with Qualcomm cVc Echo Cancelling and Noise Suppression to ensure the best possible voice quality during phone calls.
Finally, this platform also provides compatibility with Amazon Voice Services and Google Assistant and even offers advantages when connecting to mobile devices, as it supports Microsoft Swift Pair and Google Fast Pair.
Longer battery life
Thanks to the revised battery system, the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 is characterised by a further optimised battery life of up to 7.5 hours of uninterrupted music enjoyment. The scope of delivery naturally includes a matching case that acts as a power bank. It can be charged either via Qi wireless charging or USB-C, the latter of which also allows fast charging, which means that hours of music enjoyment are available again after just a few minutes.
Prices and availability
The new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 will be available from specialist retailers in February 2024 at a recommended retail price of € 299,99, according to the manufacturer. These new headphones will be available in Black Copper, Metallic Silver and Graphite.
Getting to the point
The new Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 4 is the latest generation of what is probably one of the Sennheiser brand’s most important products, which Sonova Consumer Hearing GmbH is now presenting at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. The company is even talking about the Sennheiser brand’s most powerful earphones to date, with the Qualcomm S5 Gen 2 Sound Platform used by the developers as the basis for all the key innovations.
