May 21 2018, 00:40
It might be surprising, but Sennheiser has finally announced its first wireless headphones in the sports category. The German brand has remained indifferent to one of the fastest growing active lifestyle product categories where wireless has proven extremely popular. Now, Sennheiser introduced the CX SPORT in-ear Bluetooth headphones, combining the freedom of wireless listening in an ultra-lightweight, splash- and sweat-resistant design with quality sound.

Designed to move, the new CX SPORT features ergonomic fins that keep the earbuds comfortably secure. The headphones can either be worn around the neck or in front, with a cable organizer that adjusts the cable length, and an optional clip that can be used to fix the CX SPORT on the workout shirt. With a choice of three fin sizes and a selection of four sizes of ear adapters, it is easy to find a perfect fit that blocks outside noise and helps athletes stay focused.

Thanks to Sennheiser’s exacting quality standards, the CX SPORT is tough enough to take on any challenge with extra assurance provided by splash and sweat resistance. But more importantly, the new headphones are equipped with a proprietary dynamic driver system from Sennheiser, delivering clear, detailed sound with an enhanced bass response.

“For many, headphones are a true workout essential. We have designed the CX SPORT to deliver everything athletes need to get the most out of their workout session – great sound, secure fit and a robust but lightweight design”, says Marcel Salzmann, Product Manager at Sennheiser.

The time it took Sennheiser to enter this wireless sports category also allowed the German brand to offer an updated solutions and advanced features. Multi-connection capability allows the headphones to be connected to up to two devices simultaneously. Meanwhile, Bluetooth 4.2, AAC and Qualcomm apt-X ensure uncompromised wireless sound in a 10 meters range of the source device. When using the CX SPORT for watching videos, Qualcomm apt-X Low Latency compatibility keeps the audio transmission perfectly in sync with the visuals. Ease of use is ensured by a three-button inline remote control for managing music and calls, as well as by convenient voice prompts that provide notifications of pairing and battery status.

The CX SPORT has a six-hour battery life, which can be fast charged via USB in just ten minutes to offer a further hour of playback, and fully charged in 1.5 hours. The headphones come supplied with a neoprene carry pouch. The CX SPORT is available now at the Sennheiser webshop and will be available worldwide from June at a price of $129.95 USD (MSRP).
