Sennheiser has launched new noise-cancelling earbuds in the market. Expanding the CX line-up, Sennheiser has unveiled the CX Plus Wireless earbuds with active noise-cancelling built in. They also come with customizable touch controls, IPX4 rating, transparent hearing, TrueResponse Transducer and battery life of up to 24 hours. The CX Plus costs a little more than the CX True Wireless announced earlier this year, but it is less expensive than the flagship Momentum True Wireless 2.

The new CX Plus earbuds cost more than the CX True wireless, coming in at €159.90. However, the former offers active noise cancellation and transparent hearing mode, the features that are missing in the CX True wireless headphones launched earlier this year.

Sennheiser CX Plus: Specifications

The Sennheiser CX Plus has not undergone a major design overhaul, it looks pretty similar to its predecessor the CX True and the CX 400BT. The earbuds come in either black or white and the charging case has a somewhat glossy finish. The earbuds have retained the matte finish on the rear panel with Sennheiser logo imprinted over it. The main difference is the inclusion of Active Noise Cancellation which, if Sennheiser’s past efforts at this noise-cancelling tech is anything to go by, will be pretty impressive on these new buds.

The CX Plus also boasts a transparent hearing mode, which, as the name suggests, allows users to hear the environmental sound around them when out and about. This means if you turn this mode on, you will be able to pick up on what is happening around you.

The CX Plus carries over the same important factors that we consider whenever buying a pair of true wireless earbuds – including a strong battery life. The Sennheiser CX True Wireless delivers a total of 9-hours of playback whereas the CX Plus offers slightly less at 8-hours thanks to the Active Noise Cancelation. A further 18-hours remains the same in the charging case.

The buds support codecs including SBC, AAC, AptX, and AptX Adaptive and come with customizable touch controls. You can also use the earbuds separately for calling and other stuff.

The Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless Earbuds are available now for €159.90 from Sennheiser.com.
