Sennheiser Momentum 4 review:
Darko.audio: Best Value Noise Cancelling Headphone 2022
Techradar.com: Recommended, 5 Stars!: a seriously good set of wireless over-ear headphones, offering excellent active noise-cancellation, a suite of impressive features plus excellent sound and call quality. They’re also light and comfortable – and the 60-hour battery is just another way in which they're unbeatable at the level
Digitaltrends.com: Recommended : The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless have better overall sound quality than the Sony XM5, Bose QC45. Bose NC 700, and Apple AirPods Max. Granted, appreciation for sound quality is highly subjective, but for my money, the Momentum Wireless 4 offer a level of refinement, detail, and bass presence that I feel is unmatched by the competition.
These cannot really be compared to the awesomeness of regular wired headphones, but compared to other bluetooth, they are great.
Pros: Comfy, great mic, great noise canceling, sound good, not creaky, no connection issues, piles of touch controls, app is fine with lots of customization, no weird permissions needed to use app (I'm looking at you FiiO).
Cons: Piles of touch controls, sweaty ears, 2.5mm wired connection that doesn't even work, app not officially available as apk.
Major Cons: After pausing DAP / phone for a few minutes, most custom settings are gone from headphone. So if you disable touch controls they will return. You might as well not change settings because they are just temporary. Maybe a future firmware will fix this. It appears that the auto off setting does get saved. This would be a deal breaker if this setting returned. The auto off will pause music when you turn your head.
Besides the one major gripe, I am as happy as it is possible to be with bluetooth headphones.
Great and very effective noise cancelling headphones
I moved to these phones after using the Momentum 2 for a few years, and these are a real step forward. The Momentum 2s were pretty good, but these are lighter, more comfortable, have better noise reduction, and have really outstanding sound quality. I couldn't be more pleased overall. I find I don't really need all the features that come with the Momentum app, but it's easy enough just to shut off the ones I don't use . This is a great headphone and a great value - highly recommended!
