Sennheiser is upgrading its mid-range Accentum wireless headphones with a Plus model that introduces a couple of new features while still achieving affordability.

The cups on the Accentum Plus now have touch controls. According to the announcement, tapping and swiping on the surface lets you adjust the volume, control the media you’re listening to, or trigger transparency mode. That last one allows outside noise to leak through so you can better hear the world around you. Or if you prefer a more traditional method, the company’s Smart Control app lets you make the same adjustments. On Smart Control, Accentum Plus owners have access to a “5 Band equalizer” and Sound Personalization mode giving people the ability to create personalized audio profiles.

The other new feature is called Quick Charge which gives you “an extra five hours of listening time” after the headset is plugged in for about 10 minutes. When you have the time to fully charge the headphones, you can expect 50 hours of playtime max.

Similar to the standard Accentum model, you have hybrid ANC (active noise canceling). This time, it’s adaptive meaning the headphones will dynamically alter the level of noise canceling to better fit the environment. If you’re walking down the street and there’s construction going on, ANC will be more robust. Do keep in mind having this feature active drains the battery quickly.
