Sennheiser is joining the consumer headphones trend of going wireless with its CX 6.00BT earbuds. At CES 2018, the German audio maker launched the CX 6.00BT, a budget in-ear Bluetooth headphone that will compete against Apple’s BeatsX and similar offering like Jaybird X2.
The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT have the ability to be paired with two devices simultaneously and support Bluetooth 4.2 as well as Qualcomm apt-X for improved wireless audio experience. The Qualcomm apt-X brings low-latency compatibility and ensures that the audio transmission is perfectly in sync with the visuals.
The CX 6.00BT sports a neckband style design and is extremely lightweight at 14 grams. It uses ear-canal earbuds that are connected by a cable and its USP is the ability to switch between two devices like computer and a phone with multi-connection capability.
The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT also features an integrated microphone with cVc noise cancellation and supports three-way calling. There is also a three-button remote for controlling music and calls and the headphone also provides voice prompts notifying the user of battery status.
Sennheiser claims the CX 6.00BT can last six hours on a single charge and can add two hours of battery life in just ten minutes thanks to fast charging support. The headphone takes around 1.5 hours to fully charge. Sennheiser bluetooth earbuds are priced at just $99.95 (approximately Rs 6,400) and will be available from January.
“We have created the CX 6.00BT to deliver everything you need to enjoy excellent sound on the go. Thanks to the latest wireless technologies you can enjoy this unspoilt audio experience with the flexibility of supremely compact, lightweight and comfortable Bluetooth headphones,” said Nan Chen, Product Manager at Sennheiser.
With smartphones ditching the 3.5mm audio jack, the wireless bluetooth headphones have found renewed momentum in sales. Sennheiser is basically trying to cash in with its CX 6.00BT and might offer the rich audio quality that the company is known for.
