The Sennheiser CX True Wireless are an excellent improvement over their forerunners.
And they are even more affordable than the CX 400BT.
And many other true wireless earbuds on the market.
Sennheiser CX: Holistic Review
They have good connectivity, fantastic audio performance, and respectable battery life.
Even if I’m not a fan of the design, these buds are still really interesting.
The newest wireless earbuds from the German audio juggernaut are the Sennheiser CX True Wireless.
Continuing where the CX 400BT left off, although having several updated features.
Such as long battery life and greater connection, they are less expensive than their forerunners.
With a wide sound range and responsive touch controls.
The CX 400BT were already a very capable pair of truly wireless earbuds.
Nearly every aspect of the CX True Wireless is an improvement over the CX True Wireless.
Price And Availability
The cost of the Sennheiser CX True Wireless is $129.95, £119.99, or AU$199.95.
They are substantially less expensive than their predecessors;
The Sennheiser CX 400BT had a debut price of $199, £169.
And AU$299 in September 2020.
Unless you can find a great price on the well-liked wireless earphones from Apple.
They are also less expensive than the AirPods.
Although there are less expensive wireless earbuds on the market.
Few have the respect that a brand name like Sennheiser commands.
If you’re on a tight budget, have a look at the Lypertek PurePlay Z3.
The new Sennheiser headphones are priced similarly to the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 Plus.
We gave it five stars for its superior audio performance and user-friendly controls.
Design: Sennheiser CX
The Sennheiser CX True Wireless has a similar design to the previous generation.
With a more practical appearance that may appeal to minimalists.
However, individuals who love their earphones to stand out may not find them as appealing.
The earbuds have huge, square housings with the Sennheiser logo embossed on them.
And are available in matte black or white.
If the hefty housings don’t get in the way, the variety of included ear tips should make it quite simple to find a good fit.
Our ears are smaller than average, and as a result, we found the housings to be rather unpleasant.
Not everyone will have this experience, but if your ears are little, it’s something to keep in mind.
The CX True Wireless charging case is still big and difficult to tuck into a pocket, not much different from the previous generation.
There is no wireless charging available here, but we wouldn’t expect it at this price.
The case is charged using a USB-C connector.
The charging case has an LED light on the outside that shows how much battery life is left.
Depending on the amount of charge you have left in the case, it either glows green, yellow, or red.
Sennheiser CX: More Features
Each earbud’s housing is touch-sensitive, enabling you to use a variety of tap combinations.
To manage your music playing, accept, end, and reject calls, and activate your device’s voice assistant.
The touch controls had excellent responsiveness and had simple, easy-to-remember combinations.
Since true wireless earbuds don’t typically come with this capability.
We especially appreciated being able to increase or decrease the volume by holding down the left or right earbud.
Sennheiser’s TrueResponse transducer is located within each earbud.
It is said to enable the devices to offer “deep basses, natural mids, and clear, detailed treble,” according to the manufacturer.
The CX True Wireless earbuds can undoubtedly live up to those boasts based on our experience with them.
We were impressed by the depth of the bottom frequencies on Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together, which gave the song control and vitality.
The harmonies of background singers produce vocals that are incredibly crisp and full of depth.
As a result, some listeners might prefer the CX 400BT’s more neutral soundstage.
However, the most recent Sennheiser earbuds-
Provide a genuinely pleasurable listening experience that will make you tap your feet.
Connection And Battery Life
The new Sennheiser earbuds have an increased battery life of 7 hours over the CX 400BT.
With 9 hours from the earbuds themselves and an additional 18 hours from the charging case.
Even yet, it isn’t by any means a class-leading battery life
—Many modern wireless earbuds offer more than 40 hours of playback
—And it’s disappointing that the case doesn’t hold more charges given its size.
With support for the SBC, AAC, and aptX codecs as well as Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility.
Connectivity has also been enhanced.
As a result, you shouldn’t have any problems streaming high-resolution audio tracks.
We had no trouble pairing the earphones with our phones.
And while testing, there were no irritating dropouts.
Dual microphones inside each earbud should give crisp calls.
And a new Sidetone feature has been developed to make it easier to hear your voice during calls.
Additionally, each earbud may be used independently if you so want.
This can be changed by using a slider in the app that determines how much of your voice you hear.
