Making a dramatic change in design and a huge leap forward in functionality, Sennheiser announces the MOMENTUM 4, the newest entry in its venerable line of high-end wireless headphones. Compared to the MOMENTUM 3, gone is the classic metal look with exposed cabling. Gone is the foldability of the earcups.

Shure’s SE line of earbuds has earned legions of loyal fans, thanks not only to their sound quality, but their detachable cables and MMCX connectors. That modular approach has allowed the SE line to find themselves at home everywhere, from the go-to choice of in-ear monitors used by countless pros onstage, to audiophile home listeners, to everyday commuters. However, wired is an increasingly dirty word for the masses who favor the convenience of true wireless performance for their commute, workout, and even home listening. What’s a legendary

As someone who has been obsessed with all things audio for most of my life, I always find it interesting to hear what people have to say about sound quality. I find it especially fascinating to hear the opinions of people who aren’t in the audio field themselves. A great live sound engineer once said to me, “Most folks know something doesn’t sound right; they may not be able to tell you why, but they know something sounds off the mark.” I think there’s a lot of truth to that statement. Just ask my wife, who’s heard a lot of the songs I’ve

Occasionally, when a new product drops, my internal reaction is: finally. Often, you’re waiting for an update or new feature to be introduced that is, at least in your own mind, long overdue. This is exactly where I was at with the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT Bluetooth headphones. There are few pieces of audio equipment that are as equally at home in studios as they are in the hands of your typical music lover than Audio-
