If you prioritize comfort and active noise cancelling while working in noisy environments or during long flights, the Sennheiser Momentum 4 would be a better choice, and they also have significantly better battery life, which is ideal for extended use without frequent charging. On the other hand, if your budget is limited and you prefer headphones that are more affordable, the AKG K361 could suit your needs, although they lack wireless capabilities and active noise cancelling. The Momentum 4 also have better microphone quality, which is important if you often make calls or attend meetings. However, keep in mind that the AKG K361 are more portable due to their foldable design, making them a decent option for on-the-go use despite them not being geared towards exercise. Give Feedback

Medium

Alex Rowe | November 2019
"The K361 retains much of what makes the K371 such a winner, though it has a leaner sound, and the build changes made to trim the price down are immediately apparent. Still, it’s another excellent offering from AKG, and other companies in this fight should either be very worried or quickly designing updates to their old models."

Sound Guys

Christian Thomas | January 2023
"If you're looking for a slightly more affordable set of ANC headphones in comparison to the Bose or Sony offerings: the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 4 Wireless is not a bad way to go. While its ANC is technically behind the other top-tier headphones, its sound quality is ahead of the pack—as is its battery life. Not bad for $350 USD."
