Sennheiser CX Sport Review
Hey, everyone, this is David once again welcome back with another pair of sport earbuds and with spring right around the corner be nice to see what’s new in the industry now, So Today our Review based on Sennheiser Earbuds.
they perform well in not just comfort and stability but sound quality as well we’ll find out I’m your source for making a purchase decision welcome to our brand new site and we are going over the physical construction first as of this video.
In Box accessories
This earbuds only come in this white and green color that I have here in the video
The majority of the earbud itself is made of hardened durable plastics with a subtle accent of chrome and the rest made of a silicone type material now Sennheiser does make an effort to show their new sport line of earbuds features stare a touch on its ear tips and after doing some research on this particular company stereo touch are one of the leaders especially in the UK.
For adding antimicrobial coatings and to everyday products so for those who are health conscious about hygiene and sweats their ear tips at least gives you that peace of mind but speaking of the nasty here.
These earbuds are sweat and water-resistant and with my testing drenching these simulating being caught in the rain these still work flawlessly now as for durability despite being lightweight it’s pretty rugged from being thrown into the bag and for sure wrapping them up and putting them into my pocket.
now one area I always pay close attention to is the earbud ends where the wire exits and cheaper earbuds over time the wire tends to disconnect and become damaged overall the 686 G’s hold up well as they offer slight flex to compensate for accidental poles but I notice over time from personal testing moving it slightly back and forth as I do with all my reviews.
Flexibility & Durability
The flexing did become more noticeable now nothing appeared to be damaged and the ends are still rigid enough to give me confidence and to be honest, I’ve seen worse and these are nowhere close to being an issue from my assessments but this was an observation and only time will tell of its durability.
Volume & Sound Quality
But moving down Sennheiser includes a textured tangle-free cord with an inline microphone and volume controls now pause play and volume up and down worked on my Android-powered Samsung Galaxy Note 9 but on iOS11 devices only pause and play seem to work it was not able to adjust volume though now testing the inline mic with phone conversations this works perfectly.
Now the person I was testing this with said I sounded natural and didn’t sound like I was using a mice or a headset at all and I received this question a lot is there with noise from running and for my test, it’s very slight but here’s an actual live audio recording give up for you guys.
the sample and judge for yourself okay do you hear anything I can hear the wind like your let’s bow around something okay I am probably here for people you definitely hear the window huh yeah okay yeah I’ll just run it okay let me try the wire inside my shirt and one quick last test here you’ll again hear a live feed but this time I’m wearing the wire inside my jackets while running okay ready all right here it goes.
the sound was perfect basically I’m very impressed considering how low the mice were located now as for comfort it’s so critical to have earbuds that actually stay in your ear for those who are on the move
Style and shape
Now despite its unique style and shape here these work very well now having this narrow band actually keeps the earbud resting around your jawbone and don’t worry there’s no pressure to cause any discomfort but having this rest here provides much support working like a pivot if the type of the earbuds decides to give way but regarding the hooks here that goes into the ball of the ear as small and as minimal.
As they are they’re adjustable actually to accommodate most ear sizes by attracting up and down something I haven’t seen on any other brand that I personally tested the answer that your tips themselves these are one of the most comfortable.
That I’ve tried now as you’ve seen in my previous reviews unusually wear a small ear tip and even then I squeeze it into the ear canal to cause that suction for a secure hold and I always prefer the style actually as it offers a deeper immersion into sound as it provides passive noise isolation but for these, I was fine with the medium tips that came on the buds and it causes a very comfortable in-ear canal to feel.
Now to further illustrate is not a suction per se as there’s really no need for me to jam it into the ear but it’s just enough inside your ear canal where it’s still comfortable and it doesn’t move at all now for every one of my tests when running or work me out.
When you’re pushing very hard you clench your teeth or you have those weird facial strains and with other brands, it pulls the earbuds away from your ear canal losing that sound isolation and also that sound fidelity as well.
now they stay down through every run and every physical activity that I performed and still provided that noise isolation I was talking about earlier very impressed by this design and a quick note here there is a cord shortened to have it snugger to your face and also an inline a clip to prevent wires from bouncing everywhere nice to see those features added as some other brands don’t even offer those at all and regarding noise leaking here these did very well with minimal noise leak even at higher volumes and turn not bothering the people around you…
so much but through the moment that you’ve probably been waiting for the sound test now the earbuds get very loud for most people and I left mine about 60 to 70% volume and it was still very enjoyable now I don’t know if you believe in this or not but breaking in headphones and earphones for me it had taken about two to three hours of straight listening for me to then notice the depth of these earbuds now Sennheiser from all of my experience testing them seems to offer balanced sound with a decent bass boost.
that doesn’t drown or go as deep as the best products now it’s a similar trait herewith these sport earbuds you can tell there’s a decent or good amount of bass that does well in most John EDM rap hip-hop in today’s pop music now to the average consumer I believe this will sound very pleasing while vocals still retain most of its general quality characteristics especially those generous mentioned again EDM rap hip-hop and pop.
now as for vocals and the midrange for songs of other genres the bass hits the drum beat sounds great for rock and alternative music for example but for these particular genres the voices do sound slightly recessed I wish they were a bit more forward in this case now even for a singer recently familiar Adele her voice could use a bit more punch you can say now these still sound goods but if you’re focused on those good genres they’re rock alternative etc.
after a while, you might desire just a bit more now ask for the high notes they’re not singing or ear ringing but I noticed that a few rare occasions only when at higher volumes the asses snare cymbal crashes are slightly distorted but listening to.
- Great sound
So overall what features of being water-resistant a great fit to the ear passive noise isolation and an audio signature that feels geared towards today’s modern music overall for the price this is a great deal.
I just wish they came in black but that’s just personal preference so I hope this video helped you in some way if you like my work add the way I review then please give this article a share and don’t forget to flow me on Facebook Twitter, Instagram or Google+.
