The Sennheiser Accentum Plus headphones are a premium, closed-back pair with both wireless and wired capabilities. They boast very good overall sound quality, with a dynamic driver and support for the AptX Adaptive codec, enhancing wireless audio performance. They're comfortable with a good score in this category and come with active noise cancelling for better isolation. However, they aren't sweatproof or dustproof, so they might not be ideal for rigorous exercise. They're well-equipped for calls and meetings, gaming, and air travel due to an excellent built-in microphone and low latency with the AptX Adaptive codec. They also excel in music and portability, being foldable and having a case of medium size. A detachable 1.2-meter cable gives them versatility, while app customization offers control over equalizer settings. Notably, they're optimized for both Android and Apple devices, have ear detection, and offer a long battery life of 50 hours, but they lack wireless charging. Charging time is reasonable at 2 hours. The headphones are durable, weigh 227 grams, and the over-ear form should ensure a secure fit without needing additional fit accessories. Give Feedback
