Sennheiser has introduced its latest version of true wireless earbuds, the CX True Wireless, which focus on superior sound quality thanks to the company’s TrueResponse transducer, which is designed to deliver “high-fidelity stereo sound with deep bass, natural mids and clear, and detailed treble.”
The Sennheiser Smart Control App and built-in EQ allow for custom tailoring of the listening experience so you can kick up the intensity when listening to music using the Bass Boost preset, relax with a podcast, or enhance audio for a phone call. Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility and SBC, AAC and aptX audio codec support ensure a solid connection to your mobile device.
“The CX True Wireless delivers truly superior sound at an accessible price point,” says Anton Zgurskiy, Product Manager at Sennheiser. “Featuring state-of-the-art technology and offering proven ergonomics, the earbuds have been developed according to user comfort studies. They also offer an outstanding personal audio experience that anyone can enjoy anywhere and every day.”
The earbuds offer up to nine hours of battery life and up to 27 hours available when charging on-the-go with the supplied case. They fit comfortably in the ear canal, sitting securely in place to attenuate outside noise thanks to the inclusion of four sizes of ear adapters. They also boast IPX4-rated splash resistance.
The CX True Wireless features an intuitive touch interface. Via a firmware update, you can make the touch controls customizable to define your preferred way of controlling audio, calls, or accessing voice assistants such as Google Assistant or Siri. The earbuds automatically power on when taken out of the included charging case, and power down to save energy when replaced.
Using dual microphones on each earphone for better voice pick-up, the CX True Wireless optimizes speech for calls and voice assistant access, even when using a single earbud. A convenient ‘role switching’ feature allows either earbud to be used on its own for added versatility. The Sidetone feature, which makes phone calls more comfortable by letting you hear your own voice during calls, is adjustable via a slider setting in the Smart Control app.
The CX True Wireless will be available in matte black or matte white from July 8 for an MSRP of US$129.95; Canadian MSRP is not yet available.
