Sennheiser announces new wireless earbuds and HD 820 cans at CES 2018
- Sennheiser announced the CX 6.00BT Bluetooth earbuds and HD 820 headphones at CES 2018.
- The CX 6.00BT Bluetooth earbuds will run you just under $100 and go on sale this month.
- The HD 820 are an update to the HD 800 line and will cost $2,400 when they hit this summer.
Sennheiser is known for its high-quality audio products, and today it’s adding a new pair of Bluetooth earbuds to the mix. The Sennheiser CX 6.00BT is a new set of budget in-ear Bluetooth earbuds priced at just $99.95.
The CX 6.00BT have two ear-canal earbuds that connect with a cable that goes behind your neck. Sennheiser says it designed the earbuds to be lightweight and compact, yet robust. The company’s proprietary speaker system powers the CX 6.00BT and “delivers clear, detailed sound with an enhanced bass response.” The design, price, and buzzwords all indicate that the CX 6.00BT are designed to take on the Beats X. They both have a similar design, price, and “enhanced bass response.”
One of the features we love about the CX 6.00BT is the ability to connect to two devices. If you’re listening to music from your computer, it is pretty easy to miss a phone call. With these, you can connect to both devices and answer the call immediately. Also, the earbuds have support for three-way calling. A three-button remote allows users to control music and calls and voice prompts alert users to the battery percentage. The CX6.00BT will go on sale this month.
Sennheiser also announced the HD 820. These are an update to the HD 800 premier lineup of headphones. The HD820 will feature glass on the outside of the cups to reflect escaping sound backward. This is to minimize resonance, and the glass is Corning’s Gorilla Glass, which you’ll recognize from smartphone displays. But, you’ll have to get out the charge card for these bad boys, they’re priced at $2,400, and don’t hit until summer of 2018.
