Sennheiser debuts new ergonomically shaped wireless earbuds

Sennheiser Accentum True Wireless earbuds.

Sennheiser’s new $200 Accentum True Wireless earbuds look different from the company’s past wireless earbuds, and that’s thanks to its partnership with Sonova, the hearing-aid maker that bought Sennheiser’s consumer audio division in 2021. They’re available for preorder in black or white starting May 6, and will officially launch May 21.

The Accentum, according to Sennheiser, have been shaped using the data from thousands of ear models, which Sonova provided. The result is “an innovative contour that complements a wide range of wearers in a singular form.”

Inside the new shape is a wide variety of familiar technologies, including active noise cancellation (ANC), transparency mode, wear sensors, Bluetooth multipoint, Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio, and Auracast support. High-quality audio for Android users is available via Qualcomm’s aptX Bluetooth codec.

You also get the same 7mm Sennheiser TrueResponse drivers that are at the heart of all of the company’s previous models, including its flagship Momentum True Wireless 4.

Using the Sennheiser Smart Control app, you can adjust touch controls, set up personalized sound profiles, and get access to a variety of EQ presets plus manual equalizer control.

The charging case, which is smaller than the ones Sennheiser has used in the past, supports wireless charging. The earbuds get a claimed eight hours per charge, which increases to 28 total hours when you include the case’s capacity.

Previously, Sennheiser has launch two other products under the Accentum brand: the $180 Accentum Wireless headphones and the $230 Accentum Plus. Accentum products offer many of the same features as the company’s Momentum line, but with lower prices and designs and materials that aren’t as premium.

Sennheiser Accentum Plus aims at the middle ground between budget and baller

With a familiar shape and several new features, Sennheiser's newest wireless headphones -- the Accentum Plus -- are a much-needed ption between the excellent (but bare-bones) Accentum ($180) and the company's flagship Momentum 4 Wireless ($350). Announced at CES 2024 and priced at $230, the Accentum Plus will be available on February 20 in black and white color options.

The Accentum Plus are essentially identical to the regular Sennheiser Accentum, with the same fold-flat design and a lightweight, plastic chassis. But the Plus takes a page from the Momentum 4 Wireless in the controls department -- now, instead of buttons, you can use taps and swipes on the outside of the right earcup to control everything from playback to volume.

Sennheiser has revealed its latest flagship wireless earbuds at CES 2024: the Momentum True Wireless 4. Though the company claims there are over a dozen upgrades and future-facing technologies onboard -- like lossless, CD-quality audio -- it has conspicuously side-stepped the spatial audio trend embraced by its biggest competitors.

The Momentum True Wireless 4 (MTW4) have been priced at $300 ($50 more than the previous generation) and will be available for preorder on February 15 in three colors: black copper, metallic silver, and graphite.
