Audio company Sennheiser has introduced two new wireless headphones models, the HD 450BT and the HD 350BT. These two models are nearly identical, the only difference between the two being the HD 450BT’s inclusion of active noise cancellation. Among the models’ many features is one particularly notable offering: incredibly long battery life.
The days of power-hungry wireless headphones are over. The latest generation of Bluetooth headphones manages to offer incredible battery life while maintaining relatively slim and lightweight designs. The new Sennheiser models are no exception, giving users up to 30 hours of playback time on a single charge.
The Sennheiser HD 450BT and HD 350BT both features Bluetooth 5.0 and support for AptX, AptX Low Latency, and AAC. As well, these models have an around-the-ear design and use USB-C for charging, making them compatible with most of the USB cables consumers already own. Both models have a folding design for compact storage when not in use.
In addition to built-in microphones for taking calls and using personal assistants, the HD models also work with the Sennheiser Smart Control app with Podcast Mode for optimizing spoken audio content. Users also have access to an equalizer feature for tuning the audio to suit their own personal tastes.
Other app features include direct access to the headphones’ battery status and firmware updates. Each model also has a built-in button for direct access to voice assistants and will be available in white and black colors. The HD 350BT is the cheaper of the two at $119 USD; the HD 450BT won’t arrive until next month and it’ll cost $199 USD.
