Sennheiser has introduced its new Sport True Wireless earbuds, which are designed for fitness enthusiasts and athletes. The Adaptive Acoustic feature allows for the choice of open or closed ear adapters, so you can tailor the listening experience to your sport.
Boasting a secure and customizable fit, the Sport True Wireless earbuds can be worn even during the most active challenges, says Sennheiser. Audibly, they come built with Sennheiser’s TrueResponse transducer, an acoustic system designed and engineered in Germany that is powered by a unique 7mm dynamic driver that delivers full bass and clarity without distortion, even at high volume. In addition to choosing an open or closed ear adapter, the Adaptable Acoustic feature also allows for adjusting EQ settings.
The open ear adapters in combination with the Aware EQ settings help reduce body-borne noise and allow some outside sounds to enter for better situational awareness. In this mode, runners hear fewer distracting noises such as their own heartbeat or footsteps and more of their surroundings, blending a favourite exercise playlist with sounds of nature or the city while improving awareness. Meanwhile, those who prefer their own music in settings like noisy gyms and don’t want to be distracted by the busy environment can use the closed ear adapter and Focus EQ settings.
In addition to the Sennheiser Smart Control app’s Focus and Aware EQ settings, athletes can make customizable presets via the Sound Check feature. The touch controls, meanwhile, let you personalize sound to your preferences and facilitates access to audio navigation and voice assistants.
Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility offers support for audio codecs like SBC, AAC, and aptX and affords a reliable connection to mobile devices, smartwatches, smart TVs, connected fitness devices, and more.
“Every movement during sports is a challenge for your earbuds fit to keep delivering great sound,” says David Holm, Sennheiser Sports Product Manager. “For anyone who likes to listen to music while exercising, it’s important to be able to concentrate fully on the sport without fear of the earbuds slipping out of place. As all ears are unique in shape and size ‘one fits all’ is not secure, so we have focused on providing a fully customizable solution for maximum wearing comfort and a secure fit.”
The earbuds can be customized with a choice of ear adapters in three sizes and four different ear fins to withstand any workout. With an IP54 rating, the Sport True Wireless is dust and splash resistant and can also withstand sweat, runs in the rain, and even workouts at the beach.
The Sport True Wireless offer a battery life of nine hours, and another 18 hours with the charging case.
The Sennheiser Sport True Wireless can be pre-ordered starting today and will be available on May 3, 2022, with an MSRP of $169.95.
