Sennheiser has partnered with wireless-expert Kleer (who we first featured back in late-2006) to create what has just jumped to the top of my music want-list: the MX W1 wireless headphones, two unattached earbuds and a transmitter dongle/recharging holder that can plug into any audio source for cord-free listening pleasure.
Sennheiser's new IE headphones aren't, I don't think, an indication of in which direction their browser loyalties lie, but instead consumer versions of the company's pro-headphone line. Dynamic transducers can supposedly cover the whole frequency range with just one unit and the cables are reinforced with Kevlar. Top of the range is the IE8, which has a low-frequency dial on each earpiece to adjust the bass response, while frequency response ranges from 10 to 20,000 Hz and passive attenuation can be up to 26 dB.
My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer back when I was still in college. It was a difficult times for our family especially me as I was away in boarding school. She had mastectomy followed by chemotherapy, but she survived thanks to the effective medical treatment and continue research dollars support on innovative cancer treatment. If you ran out of Christmas gift ideas, get the Sennheiser earbuds for a good cause. Sennheiser announced the release of pink-colored version of CX 300 ear-canal headphones to support Susan G. Komen’s cancer research. The limited version headphone costs $89.99 and they will donate 10% of the sale directly to the breast cancer charity group. I know, pink doesn’t looks too manly for a guy. We've seen what happened to Tony Romo with Number “9” pink jersey televised on national TV. Get it for your mom, aunt or GF, they will love it!
Once upon a time one of the cheapest ways to make a tangible improvement to your enjoyment of a gadget was to invest in a new set of headphones and bin the schlocky $1 set that the manufacturer bundled with it. Now with the current fashion for noise-cancelling technology that's not so true any more; yes, there are some damned good sets out there, but they're not so cheap any more. TabletPCReview spent $110 on Sennheiser's PXC-300 from Amazon and put them through their proverbial paces.
Old Lyme, Connecticut—September 2006—For today’s active music lovers, style and mobility rank almost as high as sound quality in the choice of headphones. Fortunately, Sennheiser, the acknowledged world leader in headphone and microphone technology for home and professional audio, understands this, and has created the Style Line of ultra-lightweight earphones combining innovative design and elegant forms with true high-fidelity performance.
Three new models, each distinctly different in design but sharing their high-performance underpinnings, comprise the new Style Line, offering ideal sound delivery for music listeners using iPods, other personal MP3 players, portable CD players, and the full range of mobile music electronics. All employ Sennheiser’s latest, miniaturized driver, which incorporates a specially tuned damping system optimized for ear-canal operation to yield smooth, detailed response while delivering all the clarity and impact that experienced listeners rely on from any Sennheiser model.
