Sennheiser has been around since the ‘40s, and although they have an undisputable history of audio greatness, they haven’t been resting on their laurels. With the release of the Momentum 4 headphones last year, Sennheiser came through with some of the best high-end noise-cancelling headphones in the game. High-end specs also mean high-end pricing, but Sennheiser is looking to change that with the ACCENTUM Wireless headphones, a pair of noise-cancelling headphones with impressive battery life, comfortable design, and a reasonable price.
There’s a lot to love about these, but the obvious star of the show is the 50 hours of battery life you get on a single charge. While this isn’t unheard of among more expensive headphones, this is quite impressive for the price range that this pair falls under. What’s also impressive is the hybrid active noise cancellation and transparency mode, along with the two mics equipped with wind reduction for clear calls. Bluetooth 5.2 from the Momentum 4 is back, but aptX HD support has been added for high-res audio, bolstered by Sennheiser’s in-house transducer system. The built-in 5 Band equalizer and listening modes (Bass Boost and Podcast) let you customize your listening experience, with more options available through the Smart Control App.
Sure, the tech inside of these cans is quite impressive (especially considering the price), but the ergonomic fit is also worth some attention. They feature a lightweight, foldable design with a silicon-lined headband for all-day comfort. Between the sleek design, hybrid ANC, and impressive battery life, these headphones are shaping up to be some of the best in their price range.
The Sennheiser ACCENTUM Wireless headphones are available for pre-order now for $180, and will officially release on October 4th. Before pre-ordering, you’ll have a choice between black or white, which are looking to be the only colors available.
