Sennheiser ACCENTUM Wireless headphones aim to rival Sony WH-CH720N

    The new Sennheiser ACCENTUM headphones claim to offer standout features and world-class sound while costing much less than Sennheiser’s top-of-the-range MOMENTUM 4 headphones.

    I asked Sennheiser some questions about these new headphones which are detailed below with the answers in italics:

    Do the new Sennheiser ACCENTUM have active noise cancelling and is there a promised dB noise reduction?

    Yes. ACCENTUM has hybrid noise cancellation, which is a combination of passive attenuation (closed earcups, thick & cushy earpads that seal off the ear) and an active noise cancellation circuit of (2) microphones that work in tandem to dramatically reduce droning noise from airplane cabins, traffic, HVAC systems, and busy crowds.

    We (and a few other brands) have moved away from providing a dB rating, as the measurement methods vary too much from manufacturer to manufacturer which makes it difficult for consumers to accurately compare apples to apples. 

    Is the noise cancelling enough to handle situations like sitting in a noisy diesel bus?

    The ACCENTUM Wireless technology greatly decreases noises around you. Our active noise cancellation is most effective with constant, droning low-frequency noise like a noisy diesel engine!

    Is there an included hard shell or soft bag carry case?

    No there is not.
