Adding to Sennheiser's already extensive sports headphone range, the new CX SPORT in-ear Bluetooth headphones offer the freedom of wireless sound, in an ultra-lightweight, splash and sweat resistant design. Made for music, TV and mobile phone use, the SPORT has advanced features including multi-connection capability, Bluetooth 4.2 and Qualcomm® apt-X™ 

Intended mainly for the gym, running and general athletics use, the CX SPORT is built tough to take on any sports challenge and is fitted with Sennheiser proprietary dynamic drivers, delivering clear, detailed sound with an enhanced bass response.

To stay firmly in place during sports, the earpieces feature ergonomic fins that keep the headphones comfortably secure, and with a choice of three fin sizes and four sizes of ear adapter, it is easy to find a fit that blocks outside noise.

The neckband which contains the power, control and Bluetooth modules can be worn behind the head, or in front clipped to clothing. Ease of use is ensured by a three-button inline remote control for managing music and calls, plus voice prompts for pairing and battery status.

The CX SPORT has a six-hour battery life, can be fast charged via USB in just ten minutes to offer a further hour of playback, and fully charged in 1.5 hours. 

Marcel Salzmann, Product Manager at Sennheiser commented:

For many, headphones are a true sports essential. We have designed the CX SPORT to deliver everything athletes need to get the most out of their workout – great sound, secure fit and a robust but lightweight design,

Digging more deeply, we are pleased to note that the CX SPORT has the specs a modern Bluetooth device should have. Multi-connection capability allows the headphones to be connected to up to two devices simultaneously and Bluetooth 4.2 with Qualcomm® apt-X™ Low Latency ensure good quality sound and accurate audio sync when watching video.

The CX SPORT is supplied with a neoprene carry pouch and will be available worldwide from June for $199.95 RRP.
